I also have a long term illness. I started with antibiotics that I did for 2 years before switching to a natural protocol. I am doing better with the herbs but have the horrible insomnia you spoke of.
Glad you're doing better with herbs! Were the antibiotics worth it?
Have you found anything to help with the insomnia?
I am looking at trying some Cat's claw and Houyntunia. I really misspelled that one, but I'm sure you know the one. Seems like not a high probability of success, but not going to do me a lot of damage if it fails...
Abx did help. I take hottunyia for bartonella. Samento and Banderol have been studied and kill the Lyme. I would look into the Cowden protocol.
Sorry forgot to say, nothing yet to help the insomnia.
I believe the ABX did help. Hottinunyia is very good for Bartonella. I take that. Samento and banderol are very good for killing the Lyme.
Thanks, I will try them next! I just did a re-test of my Bartonella - the herbal stuff I was on the last 6 months didn't do the job. But, I got pretty run down on it, so I am taking a break from meds, until I can get built back up.
This Lyme's and associated is a tough row to hoe, no doubt. The uncertainty around treatment, and lack of accurate testing make it doubly difficult to manage. Nice to hear you all got thru it!
