So I started treatment for Lyme Bart and Gabs in 2010 and treated for about 2.5 years.

I went off all antibiotics in July of 2013 and besides a few flare ups (where I would take a couple weeks of ceftin) I have been perfectly fine.

Starting in October I started getting a return of symptoms and now I have full blown what I think is Bart symptoms (sore feet, huge anxiety, pain behind my eyes, shooting pains etc)

I am so confused because I thought that if you under treated bart in the first place it would return within weeks?

So why in the heck have I been fine for 3 years?

Next question: If you had bart and it is now gone what were the meds that got rid of it for you?

First, so sorry for your relapse, Jackie.

I'm not expert in bart, but I don't think critters follow rigid guidelines!


In my own experience, the time I was relapsing a lot, I could live days, weeks and a couple of months totally symptom free.

Only to relapse, but then it was always very sudden.

it's like turning lyme on or off.

And I swear, not only one infection came, but most of them came back. Some much weaker though, some not that weak as I wished...


dr. K. and Buhner say bacteria communicate through chemical signaling.

Borrelia acts together with coinfections. Once Bb is down, most coinfections lose power, somehow.

If bart is back, expect, unfortunately Bb to be back too, and possibly other coinfections.

At least, that is how I understand that chemical talk between species: they sort of plan the coming back together, as then, in a group attack, they have more chance to doom your immune system.


The best strategy in my opinion, is to attack infections quite aggressively in the first weeks or a relapse.

I had luck in the past with this aggressive approach for relapses.


I think it's because a relapse is like a new infection, almost, that is why we feel they are back like a tsunami sometimes (for me, it feels almost like every hour, I'm knocked down).


If aggressive treatment may work for new infections, in my experience, it also worked quite a few times for my own relapses.


After month 2, if lyme is still there despite aggressive treatment, I would just lower the gear and treat like it were chronic lyme again.

Just my 2 cents.


If your body is strong and can handle longer aggressive treatments, do as you wish, but mine can't stand for too long.

I only used herbs in relapses, but in stronger cocktails, then microcurrent in rife frequencies, stuff like that.
