Re: Lyme & Liver failure
I assume that he is avoiding alcohol and things of that nature. Anything that is toxic or taxes the body- avoid it. Things like alcohol, excess sugar, chemicals and toxins, etc.
I imagine eating well will help a little as well. No junk food, maybe concentrate on veggies, fruits, lean meats, and some grains. At least for a little bit, cut out any foods that seem to bother him, they can add an additional burden.
Like elijah17 mentioned, herbs like MilkThistle are good. Might want to try a LITTLE Cat's Claw or Samento as well. This is a good immune system regulator and for some people is active against the Lyme bacteria. Sarsparilla root/Smilax is another good one.
Maybe he can switch more from antibiotics to herbal treatment. Might be much better for the liver. Probiotics might help fend off the negative effects of the antibiotics on the gut, as well.
"Healing Lyme" by Stephen Bruhner, has been a very informative book for me. If you have some time check it out.
Good luck. . .
