Just guessing, but likely just the metabolites are active. If I understood what I was looking at, DSF is really broken down in the body.
Has your father been checked for Lyme?
I'll be honest I've thought about
asking him about
that for awhile now since I've been dealing with my situation. I just haven't had the balls yet. My dad is a very conservative military man and is firmly 'brainwashed" by the western way of medicine. Talking to him about
anything "alternative" is like talking to a brick wall.
The thing that gives me hope that he isn't dealing with Lyme or an infectious pathogen is his mind is still good. He doesn't really have any cognitive impairment of neurological issues.
Just an FYI - not everyone has cognitive impairment....so please don't let that be the reason for your dad NOT to test for lyme...especially since he has an autoimmune disease PLUS fibromyalgia - which really can't even be tested - it's just symptoms.
