Bending, lifting, twisting.

Bacon, lettuce tomato.

Buy less tobacco.

I can keep going! But I think you were looking for the first one. What was the context? Your back?

As in Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato? Sorry....couldn't resist. [Big Grin]

Did you mean BLO instead of BLT? I've never heard of BLT used in relation to Lyme. (of course, I'm relatively knew to all of this)

Coldfeet, we must have been posting at the same time.

this was in the thread on "starting new meds"

"LLMD seems to think BLT is enough for my husbands bartonella, which we're all pretty

convinced he has. I'm also on BLT."

bacon, lettuce and tomato is not my favoriet...but i guess i could take them for awhile if it would make my bart go away...do you think turkey bacon would work?

(did thr poster write BLT instead of BLO...i dont know what BLO is eitehr)

After some quick research, I learned that BLT is an herbal tincture made from red root and other herbs that is used to treat Bart. Hope this helps.

I was very disappointed to learn that they were not referring to Bacon, Lettuce and tomato in relation to treating Lyme....that would be a treatment option I would definitely try!

Straight from the label:

Clinical Response Formulas

Ingredients: red root, teasel, boneset, black walnut hulls, lomatium dissectum, smilax, stillengia sylvatica.

It is formulated by a naturopath, and is supposed to target both bart and lyme.

There is a website (clinicalresponseformulas.com), but the product must be ordered by phone.

It was recommended to my husband by his LLMD. It is powerful stuff!

Viva

(there are a few other threads about it, too.)

You are right, ugagal and Viva, about what BLT is.


I never noticed anything with BLT, (2 dropperfuls twice a day) which targets

bartonella and Lyme. I was about to say that must mean I don't have bartonella, but with that

same reasoning I could say I must not have Lyme, but I know I have that.

That's kind of interesting actually because I felt instinctively I needed lomatium (one of the ingredients in this) and when I first started taking it I would have a very clear bart herx -- the same herx symptoms I had with meds including this bizarre oozing sore on my right ring finger.

Stephen Buhner says not to take lomatium long-term though, but I use it when my other treatments seem to be losing efficacy against bart.

My naturopath and LLMD, I believe, have formulated BLt (Borreliosis Lyme tincture) under the name Clinical Response Formulas. There is also a new tincture for liver protection.

I have been taking the BLt for a couple of months. Nothing miraculous, but I think it is helpful for me. I know they are committed to the abx + herbal approach. Sometimes it is so difficult to tell what is helping. I do muscle testing on myself and BLt shows healing for me.
