Has anyone put their lyme in remission or cured by using rife treatments and detoxing only without abx??

We did, but we also tried other natural antibiotics and a fewe other things early on.

Rife type frequency treatments are all we have used in the past couple of years.

Not cured, but no symptoms either. If I were to stop treating for any length of time, I beleive the symptoms would come back.

You can see my post in general under success stories, near the end of the thread.

D Bergy, were you treating coinfections with rife, too, or only Lyme?

I have treated Lyme, Bartonella, Babesia. I just got through treating for H-Pylori in my wife also, as she had some stomach problems, that did not seem to be Lyme related.

The stomach problems are gone so far, but it has not been long enough to say it worked for certain.

It is not a perfect treatment either, but it worked better than I would have expected. As I said she is not cured, as far as I can tell, but I will take no symptoms over what she was like a few years ago.

She still will get a herx if I let her go for many weeks without treating her. That is how I know it is not all gone. I can effectively control it at this point. I am still working on curing it completely.

I have C Diff. Does anyone know how often you can use a rife for that?

D Bergy I think we have the same Rife..DT.

Not as well. The abx make the keets hide .. and the rife works better when not on abx, so the rife can catch the keets when they come out to play!!

My take on this is that it's ok to rife when you are on antibiotics, but the rifing won't have as strong of an effect as if you were off antibiotics.

As Lymetoo mentioned... The antibiotics will cause the spirochetes to hide or transform into cysts...to allude the antibiotics. The rife, for the most part, hits the spirochetes when they are out and about.

Some people start rifing while on antibiotics. It's not bad, just not as effective for the rife. It won't show you as clearly what effect the rife could have for you because the spirochetes won't be as available for it.

I'd say that most people don't take antibiotics while using rife, atleast once they've committed to using rife as their main treatment.

I'm only rifing, and was never on antibiotics (well, other than 20 years ago when originally diagnosed). Although, I do plan to do 2 weeks of antibiotics next month. Rosner's book suggests that if you want, you can do 3 months of rife only, then 2 weeks of herbal or pharmaceutical abx, then another 3-4 months of rife, etc. Pulse it to get at the lyme from different angles.

Hope that helps.
