    The test I had done was in Germany by a reputable lab and I also spoke with the Director who assured me it was an excellent test. I certainly was never bitten by a tick but have been bitten by other biting insects so to be honest I could be infected with something else apart from borrelia.

    I am following the protocol of Dr Stratton and Dr Wheldon and there are many people who have done this and got well so I don't think there can be any problem. I have taken a ton of nutriional supplements for years and continue to do so so there should be no problem there.

    The Doxy is taken ever day but because Azithro is long acting it is ok to take it MWF. The Metro or Tini is pulsed because if there is a high body load one could be made very ill, I have had problems with Tini in the past and had to stop it. This was many years ago when my body was a lot weaker because my endocrine system wasn't sufficient supported so I hope I will be able to tolerate it.

    At the end of the day we are in this for a long time so it makes perfect sense not to rush it.

    Good luck with it all, Bertiedog. Sounds as if you've done your homework carefully. I really hope all this pays off for us all. We SO deserve to get better.

    Good luck to you too Athene, I am always willing to learn and would be grateful if you could PM me details of the artesunate you take and wonder whether it is easy to buy.

    Did you get my PM? Dosage was 200mg tablets of artemisia, 4 a day, taken in 2 doses.
    I get it prescribed by the doctor and I don't know if you can get it freely after this new law restricting sales of herbal medicines in Europe. If it is restricted, you'd need to find a herbal practitioner with a license, or a regular doctor. If you're outside Europe, I just don't know...

    I have a positive test for borrellia. I was treated by a lyme literate physician, but just could not tolerate the severe reactions, mostly pain, from the antibiotics. I treated for over a year. Still take low dose doxy daily.

    I wish you good results Please let us all know how it goes.
