Does anyone have any good ideas for getting rid of the toxins resulting from lyme bacteria die off ?

I have tried chlorella multiple times and FEEL horrible EVERYTIME i try it . The ABX treatment would probably be easier if I could get rid of the toxins in an efficient way .

I thank you for your time and help !

What I have been doing is trying to sweat as much as possible.

I do the epsom salt baths with one lit candle (for good measure!) and then I put on a sweatshirt and sweats and use a heating pad on my intestines to get the digestive fire moving. Generally, this makes me take a nap.

Drink LOTS of water. Warm water too.

I think we all have our own process and this is especially true since we each have a unique history and length of disease and symptomatology.

I have been taking powdered Vitamin C at night in a shot glass with cranberry juice. This seems to help with elimination. The key is to keep the movement going even when I feel like I can't get out from under the covers.

I try to balance this sweating with allowing my body to breathe.

This disease is so friggin' complex at the latent level!

Here's what works for me:
Drink lots of water, always.

Drink Detox tea in the am

Soak in Epsom salts (2 cups/tub) everyday when herxing

Use detox foot patches everynight. Podi patches are the best from akgnaturals.com This has given me more relief than anything else.

When herxing badly, eat more fat. I read it releases bile which binds the toxins. Works for me.

I do all these things everyday. When I feel good I can do the baths less often. If I stop doing all the other things the toxins really build up and it is hard to get them under control. It is especially bad when I travel & have no tub to soak in.

One more thing: Avoid sugar, take probiotics and watch out for yeast.

The best herx relief I've had is two herbs per Buhner's protocol.

Resveratrol and Smilax both worked amazingly well.


And definitely lots of water!

I've started taking Burbur which is an herb available through Nutramedix that's supposed to help.

It's used as part of the Samento protocol. I'm not following the protocol, but I'm using Cumanda for Yeast and my doctor added the Burbur for detox.

Some people have real herx reduction with Burbur. I'm not sure what if anything it does for me.

I use my far infrared sauna and it helps tremendously, of course... keep the digestive tract moving and drink water water water.

Last night I grated a bunch of fresh ginger and took a Ginger bath. It was very different than the epsom salt. It was targeted so that I would not go into insomnia mode. This was VERY beneficial.

I did this after riding a stationary bike for 20 minutes and so the sweating was profuse. I had shooting chest pains and felt shaky and weak. But after settling down, I cooled off and had a good nights sleep, without taking a xanax.

Wanted to pass this one along too.

I have tried burbur and I can't tell that it makes any difference at all either . On top of that there is VERY little info available on how it is supposed to work.

French Green Clay

How Can Green Clay Help Me?
Illite can be taken orally or used topically for a wide range of ailments. The clay is a powerful detoxifier with an extraordinary absorbant capacity. It acts like a magnet to draw out impurites from the body while the essential minerals within the clay are released and the body absorbs those it needs to aid healing, thereby restoring health & vigour.

French Green Clay is a powerful bactericide, hindering the exacerbation of infection. Indeed, one of the most remarkable characteristics of illite is its ability to go directly to the area of the body where it is most needed. Unlike chemical medicines which can destroy healthy tissues and beneficial bacteria as well as bad, illite is entirely selective in seeking out pathogenic microbes and diseased tissue cells allowing healing to take place at an accelerated rate. Green Clay also possesses analgesic, anti-inflammatory properties effective in relieving muscular, arthritic or rheumatic pains by decongesting the affected area. In addition, Illite is a valuable beauty treatment and is the main ingredient in many natural face masks, bath & spa products. It stimulates the circulation of blood and lymph, removes dead skin cells, absorbs impurities & fats and tones & strengthens connective tissues to leave skin smooth, fresh & radiant.
