Hey guys,

Going through a rough one here. I’ve been stable for 3 years now. After getting COVID in March 2022, I started to feel not so great anymore. In April I realized I was having more bad days than good and went back to see my LLMD.

EBV and Myco are reactivated and very high. My doctor wanted to start me off slow with Lauricidin, colloidal silver, and things to reduce inflammation since my HS-CRP and homocysteine are at an all time high.

Since I started treatment again, everyday has been worse. I have a stiff neck, 24/7 headache, lymph nodes that were already swollen are now larger and very painful, extreme congestion, my POTs is worse than ever, fatigue, and brain fog.

What can I do the have some relief? I keep calling out of work bc I feel too weak. Does anyone have any recommendations?

I would try natural anti-virals.

Elderberry would be an option.

I would try Lauricidin. Start slowly,

“ Lauricidin is a naturally occuring, non-toxic solution for persistant viral and fungal infections such as herpes, shingles, and Epstein Barr, and candida.
When used properly it can be one of the most effective tools in your natural arsenal against these stubborn infections.

When I have viral symptoms, I take L-Lysine, sometimes for months.

Also, what works well for me is Enzyme Defense, by Enzymedica. It's digestive enzymes: Protease thera-blend, catalase, serrapeptase and mucolase.

It needs to be taken on an empty stomach. I take it in the middle of the night when symptoms of a virus are keeping me awake.

I've been on Valacyclovir for about 10 days. I was disappointed that LLMD didnt go the natural route. I was worried about the side effects but didnt get any.

I think I am getting better. If this works but EBV reactivates again I think I will do the l-lysine on my own.

Hi there -

I have a very similar story - I got covid in the fall, and it reactivated mono for me and Lyme flare-up. My Lyme doc prescribed Valacyclovir for the EBV, and it has been helping me with energy. (I went back on antibiotics and supplements for Lyme. I didn't see a difference with my other symptoms with Valacyclovir, but definitely a lift in my fatigue levels).

--------------------
Have a great day!

They are having a lot of success with Lauricidan. There is a Lyme doc that did an interview about it. He has all of his Lyme patients on it.

BUT!! Start really low and work up. Or it can cause a horrible herx. He starts most on 1/4 tsp once daily and works up to twice daily. Then ramps up from there.

I found even 1/4 tsp too much and dropped to an 1/8 tsp once daily.

See if adjusting the dose on it will help you feel better.
