Salt/Vit C treatment

Hi everyone,

I have started on the salt/c treatment protocol & was wondering if anyone could please give me some feedback about it.

Is it dangerous or are there any side effects apart from the herx?

Many thanks,

Re: Salt/Vit C treatment

Hi Aussie,

Salt/C is my treatment as well and I can't recommend it highly enough! Unlike abx, which can often put the "chetes" into cyst form, not to mention problems with the immune system that often develop over extended periods on abx, including candida, thrush, etc..., salt/C actually promotes wellness on many different levels. Saying this, however, I don't want to discourage those presently on abx. I think it imperative to do abx if you are newly bitten! As far as long term therapy for those with chronic lyme, I personally prefer salt/C. But, of course, "to each his own". I know many on this board do abx. I'm glad they have found something that works best for them. Great that we have "different strokes for different folks!". Right?

As far as herx is concerned. You will herx on anything that is working. It is a good sign. Side effects? Some people may get a temporary spike in B/P (as I did) but as the body adjusts (it happens quickly) the B/P returns to normal or, in many cases, including mine, will go even lower!

Probably you have now seen that there are many natural adjuncts recommended to support the salt/c treatment and help with herxing and detoxing. I have never heard of dangerous reports from people who are doing the protocol correctly. Many people do not do it correctly or use Morton's salt, which definitely would be dangerous! Just read the protocol thoroughly. It's simple, really, but the ramping up dosage does need to be followed. People get excited because they start feeling better, or want immediate results, and start increasing the dose too soon. Pace don't Race is the mantra!

All the best,

Re: Salt/Vit C treatment

Thanks allot for that Jen,

Really appreciate your time.

Its what I have been feeling myself but I read a few warnings on the internet, as is the case with most treatments, & it made me nervous.

I wish you all the best on your road to recovery & hope its sooner rather than later.

Aussielyme x
