Has anyone had a problem tolerating crypolepis? It gives me a terrible headache at even one drop. If you've had problems, did something else help?

I have not tried it. It is in my closet. But my experience with herbals is even starting at one drop, it can be too much for some. I have a lot of respect for herbals as they can pack a punch. I have seen people starting with partial drops. One drop in water then only consume a portion of the water.

I will be interested in what others say.

Maybe it’s the brand of cryptoleptis that is causing you problems. . .impurities, additives, alcohol content?

It’s a shame you can’t benefit from this wonderful antibacterial and anti parasitic herb!

It is my go-to herb for Lyme and Babesia. I worked my way up to 3 full dropper fulls 3 times per day. My life altering night sweats are gone!

I buy Researched Nutritional’s Cryptoleptis. A bottle lasts a month at full dosage, around 80.00 a bottle, expensive.

According to the John Hoskins researched and published study, Cryptoleptis out performed antibiotics in eliminating Lyme. It is also used to kill Babesia.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7050641/

“Cryptolepis sanguinolenta is generally well-tolerated and few side effects have been documented in humans during its relatively long-term use in parts of China and India.

Rat studies indicate that doses of the extract up to 500 mg/kg are relatively safe (59).

Importantly, a novel finding of this current study is the fact that Cryptolepis sanguinolenta has strong activity against growing B. burgdorferi with low MIC and also non-growing stationary phase B. burgdorferi (Table 2 and Figures 1, 2).

Given its traditional use against malaria, in the Lyme treatment community Cryptolepis sanguinolenta has been used for treatment of Babesia spp. (60) which can be a co-infecting malaria like organism.

To our knowledge, the anti-Borrelial effect of Cryptolepis sanguinolenta has not previously been documented and further in vitro and in vivo studies are warranted to investigate the potential role Cryptolepis sanguinolenta may serve in the treatment of Lyme.”

Hope you’re able to use this proven herb in some capacity. 💚

I use cryptolepis. The brand is Earth's Love, and I've had no discernible side effects. For me, it also doesn't seem very strong.

My son is taking 30 drops of Crypto-Plus by Researched Nutritionals 2x day. He has not had any bad reactions.

His LLMD has just increased the dose, so we will be doing that slowly.

I do want to add that my son is not always able to take it twice a day, because he has an irregular sleep schedule.

Hope this helps.
