Just wondering if anyone has tried Teasel Root tincture for Lymes. There is a little information online about it but not much. It basically is supposed to alter the environment of the bacteria and allow it to be susceptible to your immune system.

================================

There are several past threads on teasel. just search for that in the subject line of the medical forum.

===================

Teasel did nothing for me and I wasted several months on it. However, for some it does help to varying degrees. Some found it of great help. So, it tends to be a very individual thing and certainly worth a try. If you'd like to compare and contrast many of the complementary options:

I used it for several months, without any results. Not saying it doesn't work...just didn't work for me.

One of the LLMD's I saw said teasal root, andrographis and cat's claw are the most effective herbs to use against lyme. I have not tried it yet but it is in my medicine cabinet waiting for it's turn.

I tried it in past... didn't really seem to help me either but I am willing to give it another try down the road. I was only taking 2-3 drops a day (as I was afraid of herx).



Someone told me about it in a lyme support group...they said they knew someone it was helping..

so...guess it just goes to show...we are all so different.

But it isnt very expensive so I would say its worth a try..who knows....good luck (:

P.S. I got mine off internet and I think the brand name was "tincture of teasel" by darcy from the forest

I have been using goji juice (which someone else recommended) and also just plain MSM which does seem to help me more

I started using it about 6 months ago. Just ONE drop created a really powerful herx that kept me out of work a day or so.

I've gradually increased my dosage, and I'm now up to almost 30 drops a day. I'm seeing some old symptoms surface that I hadn't seen or experienced since I was first diagnosed 5 years ago.

I got my teasel root from my llmd but if you'd like to know the brand, send me a pm, and I'll get it for you.

The other tincture I've started incorporating is banderol. Not sure what that may be doing, but with that, I can only handle a drop or two.

I agree that these things probably work for some people and have absolutely no impact on others. We really are very different.

But I wish you much success. As I said, trying this type of treatment has given me a lot of hope for continued recovery.
