Buhner Update

I am still faithfully doing the Buhner Protocol, taking the herbs he recommends 6x per day. I also started the protocol for Lyme and the co-infectionsi. After starting the co-infection herbs, I had some really rough days. They were as bad as I ever was on flagyli. I almost cut back but instead I upped cat's claw and started ibuprofen (both for their effect on inflammationi) and upped my chlorella intake. Whether the herx passed or those three things helped, or a combination, I'm not 100% sure but I did start feeling better soon thereafter.

I started Chinese cat's claw (uncaria rhynchophylla or gou-teng)  a few days after the other co-infection herbs because I had to get it from a different supplier. Buhner recommends that for Lyme that is affecting the brain. Given that my brain function has not been 100% for a while - above and beyond brain fog - I thought I would give that a try. It caused another round of herxing but not as bad as before.

The good news is I am having some stretches of a few hours when I really feel pretty good. Some days I have more physical energy and some day I have more mental energy. On good days, I have more of both, but again, only for a few hours.

I haven't noticed a huge improvement in brain function yet but I suspect that will be a lagging indicator of true progress.

I am also on the Buhner

I am also on the Buhner Protocol and am slowly making progress

I plan to give a full report in the not to distant future

PM me if you want to know how it's working so far

DAILY:  NACi 2400MG , DHEAi sublingual , vit D3 , multi vits,./ Three times  a week: B12 injections (Hydroxycobalamin). Deer antler./  Once every few months methyl B12 Methyl injections

I am also on Buhner

I would be interested to hear all about your experiences with the Buhner Protocol. I have been off all antibioticsi for almost 2 years because of becoming very, very toxic ( Multiple methylation glitches and very high Lead....i am working on these )

I have recently started taking Samento and Banderol for the Lyme...30 drops of each, with some Herxing, but not much.  I think CPni is still very much alive and well in me.  I have just sent off bloods to Armin labs in Germany for Elispot and IgGi, IgM and IgA...CPn.  Maybe that will give a clue.

I have the Barberry from Nutramedix, but have not started it yet, as I dont really know if this is the best shot herbal-wise for CPn.

I would be interested to hear what you have used and why, and also where you have sourced your supplies. I am in Canada.

Thanks a lot.

I'm doing Buhner's herbs too

im also noticing how strong these herbs are. First week I had a bad headache all day and the next day felt much clearer in my thinking. Then it started working on my digestive system. Ouch! Had to back off a bit.

glad to hear you are experiencing that they are powerful allies against Cpni.

Great to hear you are

Great to hear you are experiencing improved thinking... just be careful you don't over-do it... these and any "herb" can be very powerful and can have an impact on ones body, sometimes a negative impact if you are mixing things....

The Greatest Risk of all is Not taking the Risk...

The herbs are very powerful.

The herbs are very powerful. I am still feeling the herx and considering adjusting some dosages to see if that helps. I think I recall in one of Buhner's books reading that if the herx is bad, cut back until you feel better. 

Started CAPi for Cpni on 11/14/10 - Per my doctor, paused Abxi 5/18/13 - NACi, T3, St Johns Wort, B-complex, Vit C, Vit D3 (8,000/day), Vit E, Astragalus, Chlorella, Chelation with Alpha Lipoic Acid">i. Started Buhner protocal (2nd edition) on 8/30/16.
