Otter, I tried doing some searching on this. But everything I brought up was bamboo, what they make floors, furniture etc.

Are they using root of bamboo in supplement?

Show us some sites. I couldn't find anything.

When considering herbal / nutritional / adjunct methods:

if at all possible - because each person & each case is different - it's best to consult with an ILADS-educated LL ND (lyme literate naturopathic doctor) (or similar) who has completed four years of post-graduate medical education in the field of herbal and nutritional medicine -

- and someone who is current with ILADS' research & presentations, past and present, and has completed the ILADS Physician Training Program (see: www.ilads.org )

Many LL NDs incorporate antibiotics (depending upon the licensing laws in their state). Some LLMDs and LL NDs have good working relationships.

When possible, it's great to have both a LLMD and LL ND and even better when they have a long-standing professional relationship.

-----------------------

http://flash.lymenet.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php/topic/2/13964

How to find an ILADS-educated LL:

N.D. (Naturopathic Doctor);

L.Ac. (Acupuncturist);

D.Ay. (Doctor of Ayurvedic Medicine);

D.O.M. (Doctor of Oriental Medicine);

etc. -- books, articles, etc.

BAMBOO 11 -- I've taken this and found it to be very nice, indeed, to calm a cough and my nervous system, too (it calms shen much like Fu Shen does). It was not overly sedating as I recall.

If taking for a cough, though, it's important to also be free of the major phlegm producing foods: gluten; dairy; corn; soy.

Bamboo, Acorus & Amber (3 of the 11 ingredients of the formula) would both help to soothe muscle spasms involved with coughing, too. I could feel it help reduce phlegm and really settle my coughs, and that helps reduce the inflammation, too.

All NDs would know about Seven Forests line of herbs, excellent quality, based in Portland, OR. I could not speak to any other brand, though.

OtterJ, as you are in Oregon, you can get this from your LL ND (who may have other suggestions, too). It can also be ordered from ITM. This is a top notch group in Atlanta:

BAMBOO 11 (Seven Forests)

http://www.itmonline.org/bag_of_pearls.htm

Detail about this formula is listed in "Bag of Pearls" - page 85


http://www.acuatlanta.net/seven-forests-cyperus-18-250-count-p-17515.html

Cyperus 18 (Seven Forests)

derived from Bamboo and Ginseng Combination (Zhuru Wendan Tang). With Zhu Li (Bamboo sap) at 7%.
