What have you all used to reduce neurotoxins. We've tried glutathione (no change, vpery expensive). I'm looking into cholestyramine, but J clinic doesn't seem to be too thrilled with that protocol. Any other ideas?

Beta Sisterol and Chitosan are natural alternatives to cholysteramine.

Some folks have used charcoal and bentonite clay for gut toxins, but I don't know how much effect they has on neurotoxins. Be aware that these bind everything, including abx.

Other detoxifiers, particularly for metals, are chlorella, alpha-lipoeic acid, NAC, and EDTA. There are also a variety of whole body flushes that you can buy at the health food store, and detox teas.

You might want to read up on heavy metal detoxificaton, as heavy metals act as neurotoxins as well. There is a lot of controversy about this. One of the sites I like is Andrew Cutler's

But there are many who disagree with him.

Hi LymeLaura,

Boy, you have asked the million dollar question for the neuro lyme club here.


I second what Minoucat said! I've learned a lot just reading her old posts.


Also, here's a recent link about this in case you haven't had a chance to see it. Maybe it might give you some ideas.

This is not natural, but it's the first thing I've learned about ridding quiniolinic acid in the brain.


Sorry, but I don't know the science behind quinolinic acid. Lymenet has some information on it, but the web didn't have hardly anything or I just gave up searching too quickly.


Through my LL/Family Nurse Practitioner, I learned one LLMD uses the prescription drug, "Memantine," to block the toxic effects of quinolinic acid in the brain.


It's a low to moderate NMDA receptor antagonist-----whatever that is.

He also gives Modafinil to keep patients awake during day and Tigabine at night to increase restorative slow-wave sleep and improve neuropathy. He believes patients can fight infection better with a normalized sleep pattern.


Hope this helps, somehow.

Take Care,
Jan
