I'm back on cumanda and again having lung problems. I think it must be die off..

What do you do for die off in lungs? I am especially concerned because I have minimal diffse septal wall thickening lungs (think that is the bronchial tubes) and can feel the inflammation.

I am thinking castor oil pack and possibly inhaling some essential oil for inflammation and mucus clearance..

Would mullian tincture or marshmallow leaf help? Lobelia? Also concerned to do overkill with the herbs since I am already on Red clover supreme (to many cleansers to mention), boneset, muscle tone (ginseng, pine pollen wild sarsparill), and st john's wort.

Also doing sauna almost daily.

Lung symptoms scare me.

Thank you, Robin

Treatment for babesia -- mepron and zith -- helped my lung symptoms the most. Cleared up my long-standing asthma and lung symptoms. Malarone was second best after mepron & zith.

I wish I knew. I actually went to the Dr. today b/c I'm having so much irritation in my lungs and it's making it hard to breath.

This started a few days after starting Mepron so I think it's die off too.

It feels like an upper respiratory infection but it's not - just really irritated lungs.

It does feels irritated like a respiratory infection and this is a nagging symptoms pre disgnosis for me.. upper chest esp, and I have babesia.

Dry salt inhaler.. thats's intriguing! Do you have experience with this?

http://www.dry-salt-inhaler.com/benefits.php

NAC.. had no clue and starting back on it.

http://toxsci.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/abstract/79/2/296

I looked into herbs for lungs and found this:

http://www.herbs2000.com/herbs/herbs_mullein.htm

http://www.herbs2000.com/herbs/herbs_elecampane.htm

I know elecampane is in Enula (cowden protocol) for babesia.. so it seems to help after the kill, it seems. Not sure I want to add to the load...

Mullien may do some bug zapping as well or it just helps when you have sickness in the lungs. ??

I feel like I'm getting sick.. upper respiratory as well.

It happened after I added in cumanda for whatever reason, and I think that can hit bugs in the lungs as well... mycoplasma at least... Aspergillus niger that gets into repiratory tract. Huh. Also supposed to be anti-inflammatory, but not seeing that yet.

http://www.bionatus.com/nutramedix/pdfs/antimicrobialcompared_Bs.pdf

I dont think its babesia.. this time.. unless samento and cumanda get that too ??

Mepron and biaxin messed me up really badly and I hope not to have to go back on.

Thank you all.

You can buy a salt inhaler for less, on eBay.

My daughter has struggled with lung issues since she was a little girl. She had asthma, though there is no family history on either side. For whatever reason, episodes stopped when we took away wheat/dairy products. She also experienced a terrible bout of whooping cough when she was about nine, despite having had a pertussis vaccine.

So I guess it should not be surprising for us that herxes for her are often respiratory also, since that seems to be her weaker area. I have been looking into the possibility of using a salt pipe. It seems that it could have a broad action, helping in those cases when we don't know exactly what is there.
