This is a strong herb. It probably hits everything.

I am definitely herxing for both Bart and Babs.

I think Lyme, too.

OMG it is so gross though. Bitter. And the taste stays in my mouth, no matter what I eat or drink. Bleah.

What source are you taking? Can we ask that here? I am taking it as alcohol-free tincture from Infuserve, after trying other sources unsuccessfully. It does not leave a taste in my mouth; it is peppermint flavored. YMMV.

The Infuserve version is about double the price of Woodland Essence, unless the amount is not the same (I have to check again). But, then again, since the taste is much better, it might be worth it.

I've heard many others complain about the taste. Also, the Infuserve version has no alcohol. Although WE said that if you let it sit with hot water for 30 minutes, the alcohol evaporates.

I am about to order it. I was going to get the WE version, but I'll have to evaluate.

Thanks for the heads up that it is strong for both.

Is Woodland Essence 8 oz? My other tinctures from them are 8. The Infuserve CL is 16 oz. (I am only at 1/3 final dose so I can't comment on any major effect it has yet.)

Buhner suggests putting the herbs in a little pomegranate juice- it helps-

I'm on quite a few of them myself, doing his latest Bart protocol.

To me, the Sida Acuta is hitting parasites, which is interesting...

Haven't done Crypto, I don't have Babesia.

My Crypto is 4oz. They have 1, 2, and 4oz bottles.

16oz is a giant bottle of herbal tincture. Are you sure it's not diluted to make it more palatable? And affordable?

No accusations. Just wondering.

I do take my herbs in POM. And it does help. A little.

I also like Sida Acuta, and the taste is much more tolerable!

Like Boxermom, I too take both cryto and sida.

The Crypto from Infuserve is a better value, and the pepermint helps make it taste better.

But I still buy from woodland essence since I also order Sida Acuta at the same time. I started the Crypto last March, a week after stopping Mepro/Zith. A week later I added the Sida.

Late March thru June has been hell with pretty severe babs symptoms like the first time on Mepron. I'm just starting to pull out of it to where I was in late February.

The last time I ordered in May I changed to the Crypto/Sida/Alchornea cordifolia blend. I'm at 100 drops (1 tsp)twice a day. I mix with water, Cats Claw, GSE, ACV, and sea salt. It's a pretty toxic tonic.

For ABX I take oral mino, Bactrim DS, and just added Alinia. I still pulse TindaMax twice a week.

Cordyceps looks interesting to add next.

I'm doing the Cordyceps - for the immune building type help.

I found an organic pomegranate juice in my grocery store that has less sugar than POM (and lists all the natural vitamins) it's by Lakewood,

that is what I'm mixing my witches brew in. About 6 different tinctures 3x a day. Will switch next week as new full moon builds.

Yikes. I do sound rather witchy.

I do the Infuserve Crypto and don't mind the taste at all.
