Has anyone found this helpful for Lyme treatment? I've read about it and was curious if anyone recently has had success with treatment vs. antibiotics or their experiences in general with this.

I never noticed any difference but it's supposed to be good for viruses and candida.

Thanks Lymetoo. It's interesting because they have a whole protocol with it for Lyme on the website including how to handle biofilms.

BREAKING NEWS ON LAURICIDIN!! [Smile] [Smile] [Smile]

A pubmed peer reviewed study published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology 2 weeks ago--- shows that Monolaurin (Lauricidin is a brand name, I think) is effective against Lyme biofilm, roundforms and spirochetes in vitro!!

(I guess I better remember to take my 3 scoops of monolaurin per day... (I was just taking one scoop, but still think it helps.) Monolaurin has been shown to be helpful in Alzheimers-- and thanks to Dr. MacDonald, we now know Alzheimers is just spirochete biofilm.

This article also shows that baicalein works-- but what is it?

Peer Review Science:
In vitro evaluation of antibacterial activity of phytochemicals and micronutrients against Borrelia burgdorferi and Borrelia garinii, by Goc A1, Niedzwiecki A1, Rath M1.
LINK: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26457476

Abstract
AIMS:
"Little is known about the effects of phytochemicals against Borrelia sp. causing Lyme disease. Current therapeutic approach to this disease is limited to antibiotics. This study examined the anti-borreliaea efficacy of several plant-derived compounds and micronutrients.

METHODS AND RESULTS:
We tested the efficacy of 15 phytochemicals and micronutrients against three morphological forms of Borrelia burgdoferi and Borrelia garinii: spirochetes, latent rounded forms and biofilm. The results showed that the most potent substances against the spirochete and rounded forms of Borrelia burgdorferi and Borrelia garinii were cis-2-decenoic acid, baicalein, monolaurin, and kelp (iodine); whereas, only baicalein and monolaurin revealed significant activity against the biofilm. Moreover, cis-2-decenoic acid, baicalein, and monolaurin did not cause statistically significant cytotoxicity to human HepG2 cells up to 125 μg ml-1 , and kelp up to 20 μg ml-1 .
CONCLUSIONS:
The most effective antimicrobial compounds against all morphological forms of the two tested Borrelia sp. were baicalein and monolaurin. This might indicate that the presence of fatty acid and phenyl groups is important for comprehensive antibacterial activity.

SIGNIFICANCE AND IMPACT OF THE STUDY:
This study reveals the potential of phytochemicals as an important tool in the fight against the species of Borrelia causing Lyme disease." [hi] [hi] [hi] [hi] [Smile]

Monolaurin and Lauricidin are the same thing. Are you referring to something else?

I have taken this over periods of several months, here and there. I doubt it is doing anything that special. This reminds me that for so many herbs out there, there is a long list of things they have been shown to do for people ... but that doesn't mean they do it well.

The study above proves that Monolaurin is effective against all three morphologies of borrelia--- in vitro -- but working within the human body is another matter-- so the next step would be to test it on rats and people.
DId you take 3 full scoops daily on a empty stomach for at least two months?

Monolaurin slowly absorbs into a microorganism over time like a sponge, ultimately killing the organism. But it does take a while.

Perhaps research will conclude that Lyme patients need to take 5 or 6 scoops per day--

The first time I took monolaurin I did get a herx-- it was a trembly flu like sensation for about a day, after which it did not bother me.

After reading this study above, though I will now take a full 3 or 4 scoops per day and see if it helps.

Be ready for a herx.

More than that, and for longer. I stopped taking it, stopped testing as good for me per pendulum, when I started taking coconut water (also a coconut product).

Took it for a couple of years. It does cause herxing, and had to start slowly. I got up to a scoop or two a day.

I didn't notice any improvement.

Olive Leaf Extract capsules are more helpful, IMO.
