Yes, it's expensive. Last I knew they charged 600 euros per vial plus 60 euros shipping. So, using today's conversion rates, that's about $850 per vial, which they say is about an 8 week supply. I have many times used it up much faster, then it really gets expensive. I didn't have adequately functioning adrenals and thyroids, and would really recommend, at least in general, people take care of that first before starting this, to get the most out of your time and money.

The other thing to consider is there is BioPure Europe which sells a homeopathic HomeoK MAF (except all of their HomeoK products are being renamed, I don't know to what), that is cheaper if it works. I'm taking the homeopathic now and doing fine.

Either way, you need tons of vitamin D!

From a CFS Dr in the US it's $277.40 per 1ml vial. Starting out at 1 vial a month and slowly working up to 1 vial/week...still expensive.

I'm thinking of doing the MAF878 yogurt that's $125/month.

There is a Homeo K form for GcMaf. It works
well and costs pennies. Search.

Gigi, do you know enough about Homeo K and GcMaf to write up a short report to explain it to the people here?

I did a little reading about GcMaf a couple years ago when it first came out, but it was very expensive, and I wanted to see how people fared with it.
I knew one person who was planning to try it, but his impression was that it didn't help very much with Lyme.

I did not know there was a homeopathic version of it, until just now.


There are so many people here who do not understand medical articles, and when we suggest that they google and read about a topic, they just skip it entirely.

With some people, all they want to know is where to buy it so that they can try it and see if it helps.

I am getting ready to make up this MAF 878 yogurt that I bought from ebay.

I hope it works. Fingers crossed.

The Better Health Guy wrote about the injections on his blog. I think it's supposed to help your immune system. I'm not interested in an injection made from pooled blood, so I figured this would be the next best thing.

We'll see what happens. It takes 5 days to make the batch. I'll report back with any progress/side effects.
