I went off Cowden after 7 months and really believe my remaining symptoms are Bart related. They are really extreme especially the bone pain, tremors, and total body stiffness, nighmares sometimes, sudden awakedness and difficulty sleeping with extreme aid.
Spoke with LLMD and he wants me to do this protocol for one month and then we'll discuss what happened since he thinks it will hit both Babs/Bart. We'll be re-examing it in one month since I strongly feel Bart needs addressing in a bigger way. I do not think Babs is my real problemo, but I'll go along for just the month.
I tested POS for babs 10 years ago, treated it, and never had sweats or anything babs like. The only sweats I have gotten are more mushy Bart ones occasionally and that altered sensorium feeling.
I was treated 2 years ago when I relapsed for Bart due to anxiety, palps, well you know the deal with Avelox and doxy, which helped, but I know it didn't do the trick.
of course some symptoms could be Lyme, but I read from quite a few of y'all that Rifampin did it for you regarding Bart.
I am starting slow with just Mepron, Zith and ART. I had done 4 months of Malarone on Cowden and 1 month of ART.
I'll be adding the Septra next week.
I have read Buhners book and really researched it extensively, thanks to help here on this site also.
I am considering adding reveratrol, and the other Bart herbs Buhner suggests. (I think I will lay off Samento for a while or add very low dose)
I've never had elevated liver functions, but thought maybe I ought to add milk thistle.
Discussed adding Buhner herbs with LLMD and he said no, but then hesitated and said go slow.
Of course I had planned that, but wanted to see if anyone else has combined these herbs with the above drugs, particularly Mepron which is my biggest concern, and Rifampin for a later point.
he promised me Rifampin doxy and Zith if I still have the bulk of issues I am having now in one month. (meaning I don't wake up with drenching sweats, etc.)
Thanks for any advice and bless y'all for being so helpful to me!
