I just bought some Schweppes brand Tonic Water
and it has Alot of quinine in it-
so get that brand or maybe Coke brand -

It Really dose help for Babs -Drink at least 2 liters- get the diet kind --

It will make you herx if you have Babs-"


I'm thinking about trying this as a test. Do you drink the 2 litres all at once or throughout the day?

Thanks

Am also thinking of trying it.

Hi All

Its hard to say if you should drink 2 liters
Quickly--

If you get the Tonic Water that has alot
of Quinine in it and drink it quickly
the odds are you will start herxing
in a short period of time-

When you first start drinking TW you may
want to spread the 2 liters threw the day-

The herx can be quite strong especially if
you have not used Quinine type medicine before-

Ringing in ears can happen -
dont worry tho it will go away -Jay-

Thanks,

Well I've had 2 cans (3/4 litre)in the past 4 hours. My neck has definitely gotten stiffer and head pressure is building.

Are you saying that this would then be an indication of Babesia reacting to the quinine in the tonic water? Could this be explained by anything else do you think?

How much progress can you make this way do you think?

Thanks,
bf

Interesting commentary about tonic water - (I just skimmed it since I have to go out) -

http://www.ciao.co.uk/Schweppes_Tonic_Water__Review_5330037

Seems Schweppes really does put a little qunine in their tonic - the other brands may not.

I would go easy on drinking tonic water due to too much sugar. The diet kind has other toxic dangers like aspertame. Seems that aspertame is a highly toxic poison. That stuff will kill you!

You can get the same effects with Nutramedix QUINA... It's made from the same plant family as quinine.

Thanks Sparkle,

I'm just trying to figure out what I'll need from Nutramedix so this has been an interesting experiment.

I'm on my third can now.
