So everybody is aware that babs has the ability to become resistant to certain treatments (antimalarias, abx's, etc)

So has anybody here ever put together a plan of attack?

For instance:

Month 1-3
Malarone, zithro, flagyl (cycled 2 weeks on/off)

Months 4-6
Antimalarias, herbs, doxy

With some breaks in between.

Then once done with that...

maybe Cowden
or doxy ceftin flagyl plaquenil
or herbs (garlic, humaworm)

After those 3 months ^^ you should know fairly quick whether babs is under control.

I think you want to talk to your llmd. Every case seems to be different based on the babs infection and co-infections. Everybody responds differently to different meds and different infections.

I don't think we can sit around in a vacuum and design a protocol that will help more than some people purely by chance.

While I agree...

Aren't most of us dong this anyways by going to LLMD's who all pretty much use similar/colleague protocols?

Yes, the docs use similar protocols, but there are just so many protocols out there to exhaust. I would start with the gold standard myself.....

mepron/zith/plaquenil.

Do that for as long as you can.......it's you best shot.

That was my experience with my babs ongoing struggle.

Most LLMD's use similar protocols but they are tailored to the person based on clinical response. Their understanding/experience guides the course of treatment.

Can Babs cause low body temperature.

I searched and read a lot of posts from the past... and most believe Babs was causing their low body temps.
