    Newly diagnosed - need herbal treatment advice/experience

    Hi there,

    I am 24 years old, just diagnosed with Lyme. I have been sick for about five years, tried everything. Finally pursued Lyme through a naturopath who sent my bloodwork to Igenex lab. Came back positive yesterday.
    My symptoms include: brain fog, dizziness, blurred vision, floaters, memory loss, mental confusion, neck/shoulder stiffness cracking and pain, digestive problems, food sensitivities, fatigue...

    I am eager to try an herbal approach before venturing into such things as IV therapy or especially antibiotics. How I feel about my body is that antibiotics would do more harm than good.

    So my naturopath gave me a prescription of different herbs to start taking as an initial protocol. But I hadn't ever heard of any of them even though having done a lot of research on my own beforehand. SO I want to get more information before I spend 300 dollars a month on them.
    Does anyone have experience/knowledge about any of these as effective against Lyme/ effect on the body?
    The prescription is:

    Artemesinin: 1 capsule 2x/day
    Samento: 10 drops/day to start up to 30
    Banderol: same as above
    Diatomaceous Earth: 1 tsp 3x/day
    Buoloke: 1 capsule, 2x/day

    He also has me on Olive Leaf and probiotics for candida control

    Thank you!!

    Hi and welcome here.

    I agree with you about the long term effects of abx. I did only alternative and am happy with the results. I took 3 of the 5 herbs you listed. I see no problem with them. However, I think you'll need bigger guns to effect change and get at the various stages of the spirochetes if you've been sick 5 years with no treatment. Also, you could probably purchase those items yourself at a much reduced cost.

    Have you researched other alternative therapies? My primary treatment was salt/C with lots of vitamins and herbs. Presently I'm doing bee venom therapy. I did all this through my own research and the support of other groups of lymies. btw: probiotics are a must . . . for the rest of your life!

    If you want to continue with alternative I think a savvy lyme naturopath is a good choice. Did you ask him/her how many lyme patients they have treated?

    This is an excellent book. It is primarily about the salt/c protocol but explains lyme disease thoroughly and has a great detox section for potions that address various ailments that arise:

    The Salt C Plus Protocol for Lyme Infection by M. Fett.

    Also read the stickies at the top of this board for more information. I wish you all the best on your healing journey.

    Tess
