I know it is used for the "cyst form" of Lyme. I've never tried it but have heard anecdotally that it works well. Ask your doctor though.

Yes, we've had several discussions about cat's claw/Samento.  There is a "search this community" feature you may want to use to pull up old conversations.

I used it before I started abx and I would recommend it to anyone who is awaiting a diagnosis/treatment.  Cindy903 is correct that you may want to ask your doctor first.

There are also herbal protocols for treating Lyme disease, Jernigan and Buhner are two more popular plans, try searching their names to learn more about their methods/treatment plans.

I personally think that antibiotics are crucial to treating Lyme, at least as a first attempt.  But many of us can't take them long enough to cure Lyme without suffering adverse effects, and for that reason I think that herbal/alternative treatments play an important role.

I agree with wonko's comments.

And, if you are currently on any medications, for Lyme or otherwise, your doctor(s) need to know before you try the herbals, because of possible conflicts.  Drugs/medicinals, whether from the pharmacy or the health food store, all look like chemicals to your body, and unwanted interactions are always possible.
