The lyme bacteria has 3 life stages...the baby, the adult and the ones that create cysts around themselves...So you need a few to get the job done...

Have you started already?
Make sure to take probiotics to help replinish the good bacteria...
You will most likely herx ...(symptoms flare) this is killing off the bacteria...

Detoxing will help...

Infared sauana, Epsom Salt and hydrogen peroxide baths.

If you herx too badly call your doc they might want to slow you down...

With a difficult infection like lyme, it might be necessary to use several at once. If the infection is a little resistant to one of them, the others will do the job.

Of course, it does increase side effects. See what happens, let your doctor know if the side effects become intolerable.

Thanks. I called my doc and asked if I could take them one at a time to start.
He said yes. So that's what I'm gonna do. Feel much more comfortable. Thanks for your replies!
