After more than a year on ABX + Cowden herbs, I have switched to Buhner's protocole as I was not satisfied with results. I began to introduce one herb at a time mid october. Japanese Knotweed was the first, Samento instate of cat's claw as second, eleutheroccocus third. And though I have ramped up slowly to the minimum standard dose, I have noticed worsening in my condition : - worsening of exhaustion and O.I - fibro pain XXXL (hardly had fibro with ABX), pain like acids in muscles to the point I have to lie-down most of my day - Sjogren type symptoms like dry mouth and eyes (were gone previously) - severe air hunger and chest pressure - body temp decreased of 1-1.5 degree - general functioning decreased from 30-40/100 to 10-20/100 in 1 month I don't know what is the culprit, as I have lately experimented also returning of babesia symptoms those two last months (heavy night sweats, dry cough, air hunger, "spiral" thoughts) with the heaviest symptoms at full moon. On the other hand I have began Buhner's herbs at the same time (I plan to introduce cryptolepis for babs). Is this reaction known to someone here with Buhner's protocole ? I have experimented worsening right from the introduction of Japanese Knotweed, so I tend to think I may react to it (in Chinese medicine it is known as a cooling herb --> body temp decrease ?). Some thoughts ? Thanks in advance !
