"Where CDC Guidelines Fail, Leading Lyme Doctor Succeeds" Parts 1 & 2

Great article. I'm in the middle of reading it.

Just had to comment that I occasionally take high-dose Garlic capsules as an antibiotic and antifungal.

My insurance won't pay for a Lyme-literate specialist and testing, and I don't have the money to pay cash.

The Garlic helps me with many things. I don't take it often enough or in high enough doses on a regular basis for my possible Lyme, though. I need to start.

Garlic is a powerful antibiotic and antifungal when taken in high doses.

Of course, if you can use a Lyme doctor and prescription antibiotics, that's ideal. But for those of us who can't, the Garlic is a good poor man's alternative.

I need to get crackin' on my high-dose Garlic. Thanks for the article which brings it to mind.

Back to reading more of the article.

Hi Patti,

I'm glad you liked the article.

You are right about garlic. It has many great properties.

Many people use natural protocols to treat Lyme and coinfections, such as the Cowden protocol or the Buhner protocol which can both be found online.

There are many other ways to treat these infections also. Having a strong immune system and detoxing well are also important.

Antibiotics sure do have their place, but they can also destroy our good gut bacteria which causes many more problems if we don't properly restore our good gut bacteria.

Connie Strasheim wrote a book called "New Paradigms in Lyme Disease Treatment: 10 Top Doctors Reveal Healing Strategies That Work" that many people would probably find helpful.

It is difficult for many people to get properly diagnosed and treated since insurance doesn't pay for more reliable tests or longer term treatment.

Lyme advocates are working on trying to get expanded coverage for testing and treatment options, but our greatest roadblocks are legislators who are not on board because they are from the insurance industry.
