Hello!

My boyfriend was bitten by a tick 3 weeks ago. We had the tick tested and it is postitive for lyme but negative for babesia and a few other co-infections. He has no symptoms yet. But, as we all know that means nothing. [Frown]

Besides Doxy, what treatments are recommended - either herbal abx or other supplements for someone with a new tick bite?

He cannot take astragalus, part of the Buhner protocol since it may interact with his blood thinner, coumadin.

Thanks for your help!

As he is taking Coumadin, it's best to consult with an ILADS educated LL ND (naturopathic doctor) or herbalist of the caliber of Buhner, I think. There should be several in your region - lyme support groups the most likely to know.

Some kind of basic liver support is always important to have on board, though I'm not sure about interactions.

Buhner answers questions (at least he used to), maybe ask him directly what he recommends that doesn't interact with the meds.
