With all the different Co-Infections, is their ONE that is easier to treat? and if so, which one would that be?

I'm under the impression that Erlicihia is a litle easier to treat and less problematic symtpoms than the others? do you agree?

And if you have LYme do you always get a Co-Infection that piggybacks Lyme?

Your topic line.... which co-infection would you want?

If I could pick... I don't think like that.

I don't want any of it.

LOL...I think your title is funny in a way. I definitely don't WANT any of them. I have ehrlicia and I haven't had any symptoms from it. But I have read stories about people dying from it going undiagnosed. So I'm not sure I'd pick it either.

I don't want any, at all, ever again. I really hate this foot pain and air hunger.

What about you-what's the answer to your own question.

Ehrlichia MAY be easier to knock out, but there are some accounts of it going chronic as well.

Lyme disease is much more difficult to eradicate due to the patient having one or more coinfections. It makes things way harder as far as recovery.

You can have only Lyme but on this board that would be a rare thing. We are chronic due to coinfections on top of lyme.

Well, I already have bartonella and now have to be tested for babesia. I would like to return all of my infections and exchange them for a big whopping dose of health! [Smile]

One thing about bartonella is that it can be treated the same way as the lyme (according to my LLMD). That allows you to kill 2 birds with one stone. Not fun, but convenient.

jwick25, are you sure about that? You might want to check out another LLMD if that's really what he believes...

One that needed NaCl.

Let them battle it out.

You do bring up a good point!

NaOCl..."clorax"...a 50% solution kills the HIV virus on countertops according to my nursing instructor.

Now...can NOT take that orally - obviously! But while researching (trying to figure out "Oxyclean")...I ran across

Borax.

Interesting..very curious uses. That led me to the E numbers...

Curious about "E" numbers...esp. "E799"...an antibiotic.

Rifampin...TB abx. and for meningitis and MRSA?

Hold the phone...my sis while on Humira (to partially block TNFa) was told to be sure she tested neg. for TB...

Interesting antibiotic from a how it works standpoint (and the color):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rifampicin

...deacetylated? acetyl donor?

hummm...normally arachidonic acid (omega 6) is used as a preferred acetyl donor...
