You addressed this to Jodie but thought I might jump in here as well as detoxing is so very
important when treating LD. When doing abx or other therapies, toxins are released during die-off that can make us feel ill in various ways. I don't know what you mean about "serious" programs but here are some adjuncts I know of that are widely used:
-Vitamin C and other vitamins and herbs depending on your need. Magnesium is a must and Lymies are usually very deficient in magnesium. I use both oral supplements and Magnesium oil and gel (good for body aches and such). A Magnesium foot or bath soak before bed helps with sleep disturbances.
-Activated charcoal good for nausea and other tummy problems
-saunas help to sweat out the toxins
-green clay or diatamacious earth - help to mop up toxins, pull out metals, but also promote strong bones, teeth, etc.
-Colloidal Silver is a natural antibiotic and good for so many ailments. I've used drops for problems with my eyes and ears as well as oral supplementation.
-Probiotics - a must
-Oil of Oregano - helps with onset of colds or fluey feeling
-coffee enemas - this is one I haven't tried but it seems to be one of the more popular adjuncts among lymies.
-K-Mag-Kg by source naturals for Lyme rage
-a good mineral supplement is, I think, also essential
There are other things I weave in and out as needed but these are the essentials. Hope this helps.
