Hey, Charlie. It seems you've reached remission? I hope so. I've been away for a few weeks, so I'm behind on things. Anyway, I hope you're doing well.
Possibly : )
I'll tell you this, you'll know when you feel it, hopefully if I have left over dorman borrelia, I'll just pulse some persister cell antibiotic and disulfiram once awhile to wake up and kill the dormant forms.
Also cannabis. Cannabis become 100% more effective after primaquine reached the dormant form of babesia in the liver... Now is this everyone elses problem with chronic lyme?
I'm not sure, Bartonella and other hard to treat coinfections may play a role.
I just wish the best for everyone, have a beer on me the Dude. Gotta keep laughing from crying in this corrupt greedy world. I'll never understand how human beings can put money over people's healths. Possibly because sociapaths/psychopaths always end up reaching the top level. A good documentary to watch is I am Fish Head.
Out of all the herbs I tried, Cannabis was the most effective for borrelia, but again, I suspect you have to treat a hard to treat pathogen like Babesia first. Then you can treat with herbs like Stevia to evaporate the biofilms, then maybe treat with something like Cats Claw and/or Teasel Root and/or Collidal Silver and/or one of the essential oils on the study John Hopkins persister cell.
I'll tell you this, after taking the two rounds of primaquine/coartem/stevia protocol, then following up with disulfiram to wake up some more dormant forms, then following up with primaquine/coartem/stevia, then following up with a stevia form of cannabis.
My brain has lifted and I've regained my full intelligence has reached to new heights, can you tell? lol
It's possible I may have to follow up with primaquine/coartem/stevia 6 months from now, maybe a year from no, whatever.
Cannabis should hopefull take care of the rest ; )
I highly recommend trying some of these drugs, again, disulfiram is what Dr. Kim Lewis claims will be an important drug for chronic lyme patients.
I'm sure I'll still have a little bit of treatment left over, remission is a little bit of misused word in the lyme community, but I guess it always did bring hope, I just was always scared it filled some doctors and herbalist pockets as well.
Either way, I suspect the dormant form of Babesia in the liver could be a serious problem for chronic. We'll see if that's the case as more studies come out, I just hope I'm right, if not, I guess I'm just another failed treatment that could be another "stepping stone" to curing this horrible disease.
And again, Satvia cannabis for neuro lyme and indica cannabis for athritic lyme. I suspect many lyme patients have both.
The sativa forms of cannabis I used were sativa dominant hybrids. Reminds you there's all sorts of cannabis plants: sativa dominant, sativa dominant indica, indica dominant hybrid, and indica dominant.
Problem with Indica is it makes you very sleapy, sativa on the other hand gives you a crap load of energy and the muchies. Sativa kind of scares me though, even though it gives you a ton of energy and clears up brain fog, it also makes you very very paranoid and brings on anxiety as you increase dosage. Best to take a 2-3 days break, even longer to let the sativa cannabis dissipate from your body. Remember herbs and plants on their own have a very strong half life.
I even herx 3 days afterwards after the sativa dominant hybrid I take. Smoking flowers will do just find, if you don't want to harm your lungs, try vaping, less hard on your longs.
But I had recently done bloodwork, liver enzymes and kidney are very healthy. I devote that too milk thistle and alpha lipoic acid over the years, but definitely cannabis in the later years. Sad this drug has been illegal all this time, I suspect it could of helped a lot of patients that have committed suicide over the years, whether you have lyme, cancer, aids, whatever.
Probably be smart to pulse a little sativa or essential oils with your cannabis to address biofilms, just a thought.
Again, gotta take breaks from even cannabis like antibiotics, it can build up in your system, as it does, anxiety and paranoia can set it, lol, some people end up in the hospital thinking their dieing, they are not, lol. However, still have to be careful proper dosaging and breaks is everything.
Again some of these coinfections like Babesia, may need a special drug though, I have no clue if cannabis will successfully treat Bartonella. Them darn 3 Bs....
Another problem with Satvia cannabis plants is it's hard to tell how high you are, how much of the plant you have in your system. Again, proper dosaging and taking breaks. Don't smoke the resin, lol...
And again, indica for borrelia that's build up in your joints, indica is highly notiable how much it builds up in your body. Most of the time it just knocks you out.
Ever wonder why Joe Rogan is so clear headed on his podcast, thinks deep and differently about
things, like from a different perspective? The sativa cannabis plant!
I suspect rotating between indica and sativa plants would be good for treating chronic lyme, again, indica treating your body, then sativa treating the borrelia that travels to the brain. I also suspect sativa cannabis would be great for cancer patients with glioblastoma.
One thing I noticed is, after doing the primaquine and coartem protocol, my arms and legs were blowing up again when lifting weights, meaning the pump. So the Babesia was highly affecting my red blood cells.
