Are there any herbs that may help with Protomyxzoa?

In reading more about this bug, which I'm starting to suspect I have despite negative Fry tests, I haven't run across any info on herbs that help.

So I'm asking you - the "experts" in the trenches dealing with this stuff daily...

Thanks,

Artemisinin for sure.

Beyond Balance PZ. Their Babesia formulas, too.

Since Alinia is hitting me hard, look for herbs that treat Giardia and Cryptosporidium.

LymeMD's blog has a recent post on Protozoa.

Are you taking anything for biofilms? I think I have this too even though my test also came back negative. But my test also showed a high level of biofilms so I'm wondering whether that could be shielding the protozoa.

Not right now...I'm unable to take anything orally and being fed through my PICC line. But my "food" has no fat in it, so that may be helping reduce the biofilms by itself...

Our llmd typically uses a rotation of artemisinin, alinia, and ivermectin for protomyxzoa.

Maybe try Sida Acuta. It's been used in Africa against malaria, and Buhner is recommending it for both babs and bart. I buy from WoodlandEssence.com

I went to Buhner's last seminar and was a bit disappointed that he joked about protomyxzoa as the latest thing (had the audience laughing). It is the latest thing, but it's no joke. It told me he knew very little about it. Yet, I believe many lyme patients have this and don't know it. He recommended trying babs herbs, specifically, sida acuta.

Do any of the herbs in parasite meds kill it such as cloves or wormwood, garlic?

Antiparasitic herbs and salt/c have worked for me against these pathogens as well as with the other parasites and coinfections. I truly believe that antiparasitics whether herbs or pharma are KEY to getting rid of chronic Lyme.

Anti parasitic meds seem to hit it for me. I feel better when I do them. Even the herbs make me feel better (but they constipate me so I pulse them). Salt C makes me feel better too.

Thanks for that info Gael and catgirl.

I have a feeling the anti parasitic herbs also get at biofilms and Bart because I have been more ragy lately and am passing a lot of biofilms

Mebendazole, ivermectin, art, Alinia. Added a base of zithromax while I pulse recently based with doxy. Today changed my base to clindamycin. I am also supposed to add tinazole. She also wants me on heparin. She did a test and said that my blood has too much fibrin.

Take care,
