Just wondering what can be a more resistant infection, bartonella or babesia?

I posted at a little more length on your other thread but in short I think they are both stubborn as hell with the bart having a slight edge on babs. Bart definitely seems to cause more issues with me and is harder to control.

In my case: BABESIA (Duncani)

It nearly killed me from pulmonary edema.

I think it depends. The longer an infection is present, the more difficult to eradicate.

Both can be monsters. I do feel babesia can be hit by a larger variety of drugs though, so you have more options. For bartonella options are pretty limited and ineffective.

Both can be resistant. Depending on person, on stage of disease. Babesia though can kill, in my opinion. Bartonella is less dangerous (than babesia).

I'd rather have chronic bart than chronic babesia, to tell you the truth.

But more chronic than the two, is for me candida. Even though, I'd rather have candida than babs or bart!!!

They are both very hard to get rid of for me, but in different ways. I can get the babesia to go away for a while, but then it will reappear. Bart, on the other hand, causes less extreme issues in general but is always still kind of there.
