Hi Eric,

I hope that the break in your therapy does not cause you to crash. However if you feel yourself going down hill consider doing at least a few HBOT sessions to boost your immune system.

Taking a break is a good thing but I am a believer that the antibiotics should be tapered off... IMHO

Blessings,

Julia

Were you symptom free for a couple months first?

I think a break is a good idea, but I would start back immediately if the symptoms start to return. You don't want to backslide.

I would be doing some kind of herbal protocol during the break. HBOT, rife, saunas are all a good idea, too.

hey pippi,

I think maybe it's hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

Not positive though.

Thanks Boomerang. Yeah, in the past hour, I figured it out. There's a thread a few posts away from this one about HBOT, and I assume we've got the acronym right. ; )
