I am really confused (and pretty scared haha) about
which treatment option to choose, and I was hoping some people out there would be able to give advice as we are all on a similar journey.
I fell sick in 2014. I crashed really, really hard and was bedridden for a year and a half (mainly neurological symptoms and exhaustion). I was "diagnosed" early 2016 and started on Cowden protocol and loads of support supplements. It did help me, although slowly and not fully. I was able to function somewhat with a lot of resting (I was at 50% maybe?).
I relapsed very hard in december 2019, with a bunch of new symptoms (sweating, IC, eyes involvement). I have been bedridden again since. I have slowly tried to add some herbs this year but a lot of them either send me flying so fast or make my bladder flare big time (not to a tolerable level). So far, I have made very little progress, mainly thanks to Myco formula from Raintree, binders, detox and some rifing for detox aswell and Chlamydia P.).
I am not going anywhere like this, and I just found out I have to cut out my CBD too as it is messing bad with my liver.
I had an appointment this week with a LLMD who suspects Babesia, relapsing fever and b. miyamotoi. I know mycoplasma, CPN, EBV, and some lowkey bartonella are also involved, from blood tests and rifing. He wants to put me on a pulsed antibiotics and antimalaria drugs for 4-5 months (biaxin, ceftin and doxy afaik).
I also have an appointment at Dr Rawls' clinic next week.
I just don't know which approach I should take. Can herbs really get me through considering I don't tolerate some crucial ones like JK? (When I add it my bladder is so bad I can't sleep for days). Should I start antibiotics, get a bit steadier then switch to herbs? Will I even get slightly better on antibiotics or just even more miserable, and with an even more messed up immune system?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time
