HI i was just diagnosed with Lyme a week ago but been having symptoms for a month. Swollen joints and inflamed muscles. I am on doxycycline for six weeks. I would like to start to take Grapefruit seed extract because i have read it is a cyst buster. I have started taking serrapeptase for the biofilms. How far should i space this out?? do any of these disable the doxycycline? Any information would help. Thanks

Hi Kuhie,

As far as I know grapefruit seed extract can be taken at the same time as doxycyline.

Enzymes like serrapeptase and wobenzym generally need to be taken on an empty stomach.

Also, are you taking probiotics? IMO, probiotics should be taken during and after antibiotic use.

Just be sure to take away from your antibiotics by at least 2 hours.

Doxy should be taken with a full meal, and one should remain upright after taking to prevent heartburn.

Do you have a LLND or a LLMD?

Probiotics and a good name brand with the highest numbers on good bacteria. Very very important.

Don't start too many new supps, vits or even herbs at the same time. If you react negatively to anything it is hard to figure out whats what.

IMO, I would start the abx first and probiotic away from the doxy. Give it a couple weeks or more and see how you are doing.

Cyst busters are good thinking and biofilm busting is good thinking. But you do not want to over load your system with too much.

The herx from doxy might be fairly easy for you. But if the herx(healing crisis) is really tough and you are trying to kill off faster than your body can detox the toxins from killing bacteria.....

Are you on detox protocol? How is you GI system? Removal of toxic matter usually has to be helped with a good detox protocol.

This site has a great search feature. Look at click on icon search at top of page. Put detox in the search engine, medical forum, any date.

Up will pop hundreds of threads about detox. Many opinions on what to do and how to do. Again detox needs to be done slowly too.

You don't want to overload your system with trying to detox and your body isn't able to remove toxins because your kidneys are not happy.

Your liver is not happy because it can't keep up. If your colon and yes I'm talking bowel movements are not healthy and moving on a good schedule....

the whole GI system and all those organs can become mad.

Have yourself prepared for how you body may react to the doxy. Killing off lyme bacteria can be all over the place.

Symptoms can make one think they are allergic, when it very well could be you are having a herx reaction and your body organs are screaming at you.

You found a great website for help.
