    You might want to check out the CBS News web site. They have an article out there about an alternative treatment which can be very dangerous.

    I personally haven't run across anyone who has tried this orally or injection (bismacine, active ingredient is bismuth, a heavy metal - also it is in PeptoBismol btw). I actually came up high on bismuth on a heavy metals test because I'd had stomach flu a month before plus ulcers before, and had consumed PeptoBismol somewhat frequently for a short while, altho I'd followed their recommendations.

    I did read where bismacine or something similarly named was being clinically tested for Lyme in a Mexican clinic in Tijuana, but don't know if it was oral or by injection. There is evidence it can work orally I believe. . .

    Thanks,
