Interesting study related to Lyme's disease treatment...

Thank you!  I had not heard that. Reassuring that an answer(or at least the start of figuring out chronic Lyme) may be so simple.  The first step is to get the medical community to recognize chronic Lyme!

 

I have Lyme.  A very well loved dentist in our area does too.  It is so sad to hear the talk about her in our area.  She has left her practice temporarily to get tx in FL.  People think she is chasing a fake disease.  She has had so many more symptoms than me. I feel for her and her family.

I perused the article and did not find which brand was Stevia A - did you see it by chance?

 

I have to say it would be worth substituting sugar when going through treatment.  :P  In all seriousness, I know many people on my Lyme group swear they have had better luck with natural treatment after going through 6-12 months on IV antibiotics.  One in particular I know and trust.

 

My doc recommends natural in most cases.  Diet change is supposed to be exceptionally helpful.  I am doing a combo of Daptomycin and Ceftriaxone first.

 

There are a few schools of thought out there when it comes to Lyme being exceptionally resistant to treatment and one of those is pretty gross but it is that the tick also transmitted nematodes (i.e., parasitic worms) at the time of the bite and the nematode harbors the Lyme.  We are treating with Albenza *before* beginning antibiotics.

 

It's funny - my mother in law sent me an article yesterday on this and the website looked like advertisements and fluff but I am giving it more weight now.

alcohol extracted were effective, but not powdered form
