@rico so I've been off of antibiotics for a couple maybe 3 weeks. Whilst on them I actually felt pretty good. Feel like my head got clearer and was able to really pick up my speed on the race track on my motorcycle because of a clearer mind. Anyways I started taking the cocktail and instantly felt like shit, anyways 2 weeks later and I feel worse if anything. Can't ride my mtb which is my favorite thing to do. Feel like I should quit the cocktail and try something else..

Other issue is I've changed a whole bunch of stuff trying to get my gut back in shape. No carbs or sugar other than honey in my coffee , eating kimchi like a fool and dirt and probiotics and allgea .

Would like to feel good again so any input would be appreciated

How many drops are you taking a day, as the BioPure Cocktail is no joke. I am currently taking it and I can tell you that it can be more powerful than antibiotics. I am ramping up very slowly and am at 2 drops 2x daily. That fact that you feel like shit tells us that it is working, and unlike the antibiotic you took, the Cocktail will also kill some of the co-infections. Your system is being flooded with neurotoxins and inflammation (not good) from the die-off of the bugs. If it gets unbearable you should back off your dosage, or stop for a while. This is a war and not a race, so find your comfort level and try not to exceed it.

Be careful about going over board trying to rebuild your gut. There is a lovely thing called histamine intolerance/mastcell disorder that many of us lyme wing-nuts need to be aware of.

This shit is so multi faceted that we can't even begin to cover it all here, so Im gonna PM you my home phone #. If you feel like talking for awhile give me a shout.

Stopped at the Lyme disease booth at NY State fair today. Bought the little tick remover, but they also had a kit (didn't get) that you can test the tick yourself to see if it is a carrier for lyme disease. I believe the cost was $15. TestTheTick.com

My wife just got her results in, positive. Also got off the phone with Rico. That man is a walking lymes encyclopedia. Lymes was poo-pooed here as non existent, and just one of those things you got when visiting the east side of the mountains. I can say that this is far from the truth.
She’s on day 3.5 of a 6 week course of Doxycycline, and a bunch of other shit. Bad news is the last known tick bites occurred 2 years and about 1.5 years ago, just before and durning her pregnancy with our daughter. The little data I was able to gather is that it can cause miss carriages, birth defects, and babies who make it can have a rash. Our girl has had a mistry rash since day 3, it ebbs and flows, getting worse with irritation.
My head is spinning from all this new information and wondering if anyone here knows more about this? There is literally jack shit about this on the web other than mentioning that it’s possible.
Mad props to Rico for spending two hours on the phone with me, holding my hand through all this shit

Wow, tough go for you and your wife. Sorry to hear it.

Great to have contact here on the Buzz with someone who knows so much about it.

Trying to navigate and translate all the "information" on the web about this shit would leave me trying to pound my head through a brick wall. Instead I can just stick with drywall and hope I don't hit a stud.

The sun-sensitivity is no joke with that. Especially later in the course. Guts take a while to normallize afterwards too for most patients. Hope it works for her and the little-one's rash gets figured out. Asked my CPM wife about inutero transmission and she said "nothing conclusive yet," which seems to be the lymes mantra...

Thanks for checking in for me.

Hey, @rico, and any other interested parties! I just thought I'd share a short video I stumbled across in my web wanderings. The guy is a botanist, I think, who also constantly swears like a sailor. The video basically tells of a lizard that causes the Lyme disease to be eradicated from the bodies of ticks that try to feed on this lizard, I think. I just found the guy's video channel, so I want to watch a few more to get to know him better. He seems to have a huge output in terms of the amount of content he creates.

Here's a link to his video.

Yea, there is a theory that the older ticks are lesss prone to be lyme carriers than the young seed ticks because the older ticks have had more chances to feed on these lizards... Don't know whether there are any legit studies to prove this or not?

Timbr, where the heck have you been? Haven't heard from you in quite a while. Had me a bit worried.

@oldoakman; Thanks for the sentiment. I've just been really busy with stuff in my personal life, nothing bad. It's nice to be back and checking in, now that I've got a bit of a breather. Thanks again for your concern. Best wishes, Tim.

I thought we were missing some sunny nature on here recently. Nice to see ya Tim.

I am a month into treatment. Got a nasty sunburn after a day working on snowy ground. Doxy really does increase your sun sensitivity I guess!

For anyone wanting to get some testing, Armin Labs in Germany is a good resource as well as IGENEX (but they are $$$)

Even these high dollar tests can have fairly inconclusive result if your are dealing with a long standing case of lyme/conifections. This is when a good Lyme Literate Doc will use a clinical diagnosis to assist in a treatment plan.. I myself work with a Lyme Doc who also uses Dr Dietrich Klinghardt's Autonomic Response Testing, which is extremely effective in determining what is currently causing your symptoms and what is going to be effective at dealing with it.....

Homeopathy can be very effective in treating and managing lyme/coinfections.

Sulphur can be tough for many lyme folks because of a DNA mutation/snip know as a CBS mutation which many of us have....High sulfur levels can sometimes cause high ammonia levels which can make you feel like uttter shit. A simple DNA test can tell you whether you have the potential to have problems with sulfur...I myself have a homozygous CBS mutation and feel much bettter if I limit my intake of high sulfur foods, suplements, and drugs.. Funny but both my grandmother and mother intuitively knew to avoid sulfur....

Very true. BUT the two most reliable are Armin and IGENEX. Doesn’t mean they are fully conclusive, but should simply be used to add evidence to the case, and not diagnosis
