Hello!
My doctor has suggested I go on IV antibiotics. I don't currently have a functional medicine LLMD, so I have to go with a doctor who is somewhat Lyme literate, but who bends to the protocols touted by the hospital she practices out of.

I highly doubt that IV antibiotics alone are going to be the be all and end all for me with regard to treatment, and would like to know if anyone can suggest some additional meds or supplements?

I have been reading and hearing about things like Stevia extract and oregano oil and wonder if either of those would be helpful but have no idea of how to add those to an IV antibiotic regimen.

I would appreciate any feedback!

Thank you!

Also study all the books by Stephen H. Buhner on lyme and coinfections. Find his website / blog as well.

After reading both Zhang's and also Buhner's books, you will have a wider range of options. And both can draw similarities and distinctions between the various tick borne infections.

Regardless of the specific infection, combinations of - or the approach - this component must accompany every protocol. It's a must. Always. No matter what.

Liver support / antioxidants are essential to help reduce inflammation & pain, and to nourish & protect cells.

However, since these help the liver "hum" so to speak and can cause some medications to be "washed away" a little sooner when the liver is doing its thing, it's best to time these kinds of supports a couple hours away from Rx that require certain blood levels to maintain their strength.

How I wish my words would work. It's explained better here, somewhere, I know, though:

Good luck as you find your way along this interesting journey.

You asked about oregano oil. If you use that, be sure it's ENTERIC COATED or strong gel caps that won't break open until well along the digestive tract.

Enteric coated / gel cap oregano oil can be very helpful this time of year with various viruses, etc. passed around. I think it's very valuable as a base support. Still . . .

ENTERIC COATED PEPPERMINT is better, I think, when starting out unless one might have a flu to be tackled.

It's better tolerated, usually, can help reduce pain all through body and can also help "melt" biofilm (as oregano oil may but oregano oil is not very well tolerated by everyone).

As for stevia, my study on that is not yet complete on that but I tend to not be impressed other than it being a nice sweetener.

If you go for that, read up on Eva Sapi's work and I think there's only one brand suggested. I've used stevia for many years and I sure have not found it to be a medicine in any manner.

One concern I've never seen addressed in any article or talk about it, though, is that as it is very sweet, I'm not sure it's good to have a sweet agent in the body at all times.

I know that some functions of the body can go a bit kaput when too many artificial sweeteners are used. It's just potentially dangerous even if not artificial to have sweet in the body too many hours of the day, I think.

Even if it does not raise blood glucose, there can be a lot of tricking and responses by the brain / pancreas of which we might not be aware.

I just think that question is important to consider fully and reconcile before taking on board beyond in our green tea or oatmeal.

If anyone ever sees where this question has been discussed, please post details.

I've heard that it's very important to ask your doctor about how to protect your liver while on IV antibiotics.

I'm so sorry for the late response. Thank you so much for the information, Keebler, and thank you, too, Lyme 248. I will look at it all. My liver enzymes tend to get elevated occasionally, so all the more reason to stay on top of that!

Can you suggest a particular brand of enteric coated peppermint?
