Has anyone read this book? The author is Stephen Buhner. If you have what is your opinion on it's suggestions.

Has anyone had success in using homeo pathic treatment? Suppliments etc? If so what resource did you use.

I am looking for alternatives to antibiotics at this point.

Thanks

The Buhner book is an excellent place to begin. Excellent in many ways. You can search out many threads just with that name for more detail but I'd just go straight to that book and copy and paste these lists to your computer file for reference and further study.

=======================

http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi/ubb/search/search_forum/1

Search LymeNet Archives

=========================

The doctor with whom you would be working should have full knowledge of every approach below. He may also have suggestions that are not on this list - hopefully from his communication with others LL doctors or from his experience with other lyme patients.

To compare and contrast the work of authors regarding some of the most common complementary or integrative paths. Note that many still incorporate antibiotics.

This is not at all a complete list . . . just a start. It's far easier to have a LL doctor with lots of experience so that you don't have to do all the homework. Suggestions here are, in no way, intended to take the place of a good LL doctor. This is for patient education and also to serve as a basis for discussion with your LL doctor.

Now, after all that, it's really best to have a LL ND (naturopathic doctor) or a LL L.Ac. (acupuncturist) guide you.

NDs have four + years of medical college education just in herbs, chemistry, physiology, etc. The training for acupuncturist is similar (but not exactly the same), still, with years of education. You can always ask about their eduction and experience and a good ND or L.Ac. would love to share that. They know important things that would not even occur to us.

Maybe your LLMD has some suggestions. Many LLMDs have a good working relationship with some and some NDs are also ILADS-educated. That would be ideal.

If you need more help finding a good LL ND or other similar doctor, let me know. I have a set of links that can help.

When I read a book, I not only take in the information, i also "tune in" to the consciousness of the author.

This is a phenomenal book, extensively researched, by a person who is not out to make money at all.

Stephen Buhner is committed to sharing his extensive expertise and experience on many levels.

We are fortunate to have him as a wise-person in our midst.

I also highly recommend Wolf Storl's book, "Healing Lyme Disease Naturally" which recently came out.

peace and ease.....

'Healing Lyme' is a great book, a standard really for those who want to try herbs as well as antibiotics, but also because it analyses and explains Lyme Disease so well.

For those who want to try SB's protocol, be aware that SB no longer recommends andrographis as a 'core' herb because some people react badly to it. Resveratrol is the most important, he now thinks.

Also you can visit the Ask an Expert columns on www.planetthrive.com to catch up on SB's response to questions [or ask him your own!].

turtle, I recommend going back to "questions and discussion" and from there go to "seeking a doctor" and ask on there for a recommendation for an LLND near you.

I read the book. I loved it. I use Cat's Claw and sasparilla. I haven't done the full protocol yet because I have to get this pain under control.

I only take 3 cat's claw a day and it helps really good with the inflammation in my hands. Before cat's claw (and if I stop it now) my hands are so swollen when I wake up I can't bend them.

The sasparilla helps with other pain relief but it really messes up my stomach.

I tried the andrographis and started breaking out in a rash-so I stopped that immediately.

Good Luck

I have the book and think it is good for reference.

For me, personally, I need the abx and I choose to use the supplements that my LLMD recommends, so I use this book as information only. I haven't followed any of the things he recommends per se.

Still, I am glad I purchased the book.
