Not my area of expertise, but some of these persisters live in bio films? Maybe a biofilm buster like Serrapeptase. But you always run the risk of breaking the biofilm and ending up worse I think.
I remember Charlie55 talking about Dr Hs persister protocols, maybe dapsone and disulfiram. But those sound like harsh approaches.
One article I came across a while ago said you can use sugars like mannitol or fructose to wake them up, then kill them.
I wish the IVIG was helping, and I wish I knew more about persisters, but it does sound like you and Dr K have the right working theory
Is serrapeptase prescript
ion or OTC? Have you heard of people getting worse attacking biofilms? I wonder why that would be the case (other than maybe a bad herx) especially if I have Bicillin in my system which would kill any released spirochetes.
Girlie, are Xylitol and lactoferrin OTC or prescript
Are any of these biofilm busters known to cross the BBB? That’s where my issue is when I’m having by symptoms.
Dcd, Dr K doesn’t use Disulfiram - I asked him last Friday when talking about
Bicillin/persisters et. and the safety profile isn’t something he’s comfortable with. He was very bullish on azlocilin but who knows when or if that will be available for public use.
