My husband pulled a deer tick off himself this AM. He was doing yard work on Sat., which is probably when he picked it up. Today is Tues. He immediately applied adrographis & bentonite clay & took extra (3000 mg) astragulas as soon as he pulled it off. Called family doctor to request a preventative antibiotic & he doesn't prescribe them. Will only give antibiotic if he is presenting with symptoms.
We saved the tick. Would you bother testing it since he immediately did all the Buhner prescribed protocols? I have been treating for lyme & co for years with herbs & supplements, & if we don't need to spend more money on this demonic plague I'd be happy. But I also don't want to miss any opportunities of catching any potential problem early.
What would you do? I know it's easy to follow the fear & panic because of what we've all been thru, but what would logic tell you to do?
Thanks for your help!
I would have him go back to the dr and tell him he has symptoms and get a few weeks of antibiotics.
You can send the tick to Igenex for testing
