You have touched on a very important problem, Biofilm. Bacteria in particular are often protected by Biofilm, making it difficult to completely suppress such infections.
We recommend a Biofilm-busing EDTA suppository called Detoxamin. This is used every other day to remove biofilm and heavy metals.
In clinical trials we have found that Detoxamin increases susceptibility of refractory chronic bacterial infections to antibiotics. For example, in patients with refractory prostatitis Detoxamin increased the effectiveness of tetracycline antibiotics and significantly reduced symptoms, pain, calcium deposits, and increased function and quality of life assessments.
Thank you your response. My dr. treating my Lyme is probably familiar with it. I may have had EDTA in 2003 when removing mercury, with almalgam fillings, but not in the suppository form. It was oral and IV. Each time I would be more sick for awhile, perhaps from die off toxins?
There is certainly a die-off or Herxheimer reaction when EDTA and antibiotics are used together. When chelation is used alone, there is no cytotoxic effect on the accompanying infections, so they are not affected but there could be an immune response to the broken up biofilm itself or to infectious agents that are released from the biofilm.
Don’t assume that your Lyme doc knows about biofilm.
