I've had lyme and babesia for decades.

I've done the 30-day cholestyramine protocol twice, and failed the shoemaker visual contrast test twice. My llmd says i need to keep repeating the 30-day cholestyramine protocol until i pass the vision test, otherwise I won't get the lyme under control.

Any opinions/advice/experience?

thanks.

I've always heard we need to treat mold before Lyme.

I would keep taking CSM.

besides the VCT, did the cholestyramine help with any of your symptoms?

did it give you constipation?

thinking about doing this

Esea, one of the MDs well known for fighting parasites (Todd Watts??) apparently uses the visual contrast sensitivity test as a guide to the degree of parasite infestation, so maybe using cholestyramine or Welchol for binding mould is not enough wthout a good parasite programme in place.

I'm on it now and I'm gradually improving. Not sure what you mean by 30 day protocol though. I've been on it a lot longer than that.

Have you looked into mold? I mean really looked? It's not going to help very much if you're still in a moldy environment.
