Hi everyone,

I've been off antibiotics since July, now just taking AV formula for Lyme and anti-viral. I've started at one drop and increased by 1 drop each week. My doctor said that if I have rough herxing to stop increasing the doseage until I can handle the herx. I've done that several times right around 3-6 drops for several weeks each. Right now I'm at 9 drops and something is hitting me bad, can't tell if its a herx or not, haven't anything quite like it.

Awful bloating to the point where I really can't eat, lots of inflammation, but not a lot of pain in the intestines, just bloating. Some pains in the kidneys at times. Some dizziness and light headedness, numbness in hands and feet. I'm wondering if this is bartonella? I know I had/have mycoplasma and lyme, bart and babs didn't show in blood tests but I was on mepron and bactrim at one point for them.

I was feeling much better over the course of the past few months with minor herxing and a few balance issues. Now I'm feeling like I'm getting rocked. Pains in feet as well. Any suggestions?

Foot pain is usually bart, and I think the balance issue is babs. You might try lowering your AV dose to where you had no symptoms (maybe 9 drops stirred up your co infections).

Also, bart likes to rear its ugly head in the fall/winter.

I see. I was basically told to stay at one dose until symptoms are gone, then increase by 1 drop until I hit 30 drops and stay there until I feel 100%.

I had similar sx on mold toxin tx. Gi doc couldnt figure itvout. I was bloating from chic broth for weeks. VSL3 FIXED IT. I HAD TO USE 8 a day at first. Now i am , ok on 3 a day. I also stopped wheat. I dont think it is a gluten problem. It is either gmo wheat or the roundup they put on the wheat

Lyme? Its complicated. Educate yourself.

It could be the drops themselves.

If you don't think it's candida, then look to oxalates in foods or the drops as a possibility.
