It may work well and may not work well. You got to try it. It worked nothing for the first time I tried it. Later, after a reinfection, I tried it again and it worked.

Like everything else, it depends on the bacteria and the body, I suspect. When it works, it usually works well. But I don't believe on single-herb protocols, not for chronic lyme.

Less trial and error are Buhner herbs. Cats claw is known to work for many many people. Do a search here. Andrographis one of the strongest herbs I ever took. Another that works pretty well is Japanese knotweed.

Good luck.

I am using it in conjunction with other herbs and abx. I have been making a lot of progress since starting the teasel root, but I also started an aggressive abx protocol to hits babs at the same time.

I have heard that some people use just teasel root to get rid of lyme. But that just sounds too simple to me.

Is there a link to an article, etc. I'd like to see that. Or was is just word of mouth? I found nothing in a cross-search at Google.

I was very disappointed in Teasel as a single agent and, even as a combined formula.

Still, as part of an over all protocol, it can be very helpful and some have seen fair to good results.

I was very jazzed about it as, at the time I used it, there were no other alternatives known to me. I didn't even have internet then. It would have been about 2001. I used it for quite some time and saw no help.

It's hard to discount those who had positive experiences but I'd sure not put my money on Teasel as a single treatment. Give it a good go and see how you do. You may be one of the lucky ones - just know that there is no guarantee. If you get good results, great. If not, there are still more options.

Start slowly, as is good with each new supplement.

But a huge consideration is time that can be lost waiting to see if a single supplement will work. I lost many months waiting to see if Samento would work as promised. Same for teasel. For me, just time lost.

It is best to see a good ILADS-educated LLMD so that you have a full picture of what is going on. There are also some ILADS-educated LL NDs (naturopathic doctors). A LL ND would know more about how to proceed regarding complementary approaches.

As important as any supplements, sections regarding self-care:

I don't think it does anything. That's just my personal experience. Maybe I have not given it enough time.

Teasel is in a tincture that I am taking for Lyme and Bart.

This tincture made me herx a lot at first, and now when I stop the tincture, I get headaches, so I always go back on it after stopping.

So something in it is obviously "doing something." Don't know if it's the teasel or something else. There's also Red Root, black walnut hull, Lomatium, etc etc.

Also, if I'm remembering this correctly....if I run out, not only do I get headaches going off for a couple days, but then when I go back on it, I get herx headaches all over again.

Teasel helps bring Lyme out from hiding I've heard.
