I have started this as part of a chelation protocol. It is quite expensive, and it particularly disgusting to swallow down. I read to mix it with lemonade or grapefruit juice, but it is a big glop of goo, and does not mix at all.

Does anyone know where I can purchase it at a reasonable price? And does anyone know the best way to get it down? My stomach is quite sensitive these days, and it does not take much to get me nauseous.
thanks!

I've noticed that a lot of people are using the liposomal approach for better absorption of supplements. I believe that this is a mistake if you are trying to get rid of biofilms and the Fry bug, because although absorption is better, liposomal is essentially a fat, or lipid carrier.

Like you said, it's a big glob of goo! Here is liposome def:

"An artificial microscopic vesicle consisting of an aqueous core enclosed in one or more phospholipid layers, used to convey vaccines, drugs, enzymes, or other substances to target cells or organs."

I'd say that it's like taking mepron and Malarone with fat so that the drugs will be absorbed better. Yes, they will be absorbed better, but the fat will just end up keeping the bugs protected from the drugs, and thousands of dollars and many months will just be wasted.

Not all LLMD's are buying into the low fat diet approach. My daughter is positive for Fry Bug.

She is taking Ivermectin, Boulouke, and Enzalase.

She was already on Malarone, Zith and Liposomal Artemsin and still is.

Right now she has been doing very well for the past 5 weeks. Fingers crossed.

4truth, just take the regular EDTA. There is also a suppository form if you are worried about poor absorption from caps.

Gail, feeling ok doesn't mean it's going away. What's the point in taking expensive meds for a year or more only to relapse almost immediately after stopping them?

Even if someone is feeling better on a protocol, it could be that the meds are hitting a different organism than what is targeted, and maybe the Fry bug is just remaining in check without any real progress against it at all.

well Porsche if that was directed to me after being horribly sick thru all 4 years of

high school on many different protocols to include IV abx I will happily take the last month of my daughter feeling terrific.

Nobody can definetely tell whats working for what infection but I choose to think in a positive manner after watching her suffer for so long.

Many people have the Fry bug and are asymptomatic.
