    I would like to know how many different tx we have all tried and which worked the best, also what was totally no help at all??

    Seems like many have different results than others - just wondering.
    Currently I'm trying the guai, but having a hard time with it b/c of the sals. Hugs, Patti

    Now, aren't you sorry you asked! :)

    I have been on Doxycycline for 6 weeks and it is helping considerably. The next thing I will try is the Guai. I know that some of the things that I have tried that didn't help me have helped others.

    Over the years I would say that the Doxy, the hyperbaric oxygen chamber and precipitated sulphur baths were the things that helped me the most. If the sulphur didn't smell so bad I would highly recommend it.

    Just keep in mind that we are all different.

    And I thought I had done it all! I'm too tired to post the things I've tried tonight, but I want to bump this topic, because I think it's potentially very helpful to everyone.

    Pepper, just what is a "precipitated sulphur bath?" diane

    A therapist who does the Dr. Vodder Method of Lymph Drainage told me that she recommends these baths to all her CFS clients and that it does help.

    I ordered precipitated sulphur from the natural pharmacy. It came in a powdered yellow form. You mix a small amount (1 tsp or 1 Tbsp - can't remember)with some rubbing alcohol to make a paste.

    You put this paste under the tap while the water is running so it will dissolve. I believe you are supposed to stay in the bath for 15-20 minutes. I would have to check my notes.

    I do not know why but it did give me a considerable amount of energy that lasted for several hours - every single time I did it. The problem is that you smell of sulphur for days afterwards, the house smells of sulphur as do your clothes and the towels. I sure wish there was some way of getting around the smell because I had terrific results with it!

    Was just looking into anti-viral and anti-retroviral herbal therapies (husband is about to make teas with our home apothecary set up) and was looking into juniper here.

    found this very useful thread and thought I'd bump it for others and see if we could get more input.

    This thread is a great idea - I hope others find it useful as well.
