    Hi all. I have a question about this Lyme protocol I am about to start.

    I have instructions on how to take Samento and later begin Banderol...but the instructions for Cumanada are separate.

    Am I supposed to start the Cumanada at the same time as the Samento, or add it later on?

    Thanks a lot

    Hi @Daffodil, If you start Samento gradually, I'd wait at least until you reach your target dosage or later, before you start any other herb. Reactions to herbs tend to vary from person to person and if you start with two or more at the same time, then you have an adverse reaction you don't know which one caused it.

    @Daffodil

    Cumanda, according to the handout you probably have, is for co-infections, not Borrelia. Do you have co-infections?

    hi sushi. my IgG to bartonella was a little elevated so the doc thinks i probably have that. also, cuz of my night sweats and low grade fevers, my doc thinks i need a babesia test. i will send blood for that on tuesday.

    i actually had a couple of low grade fevers when i spoke to the doctor, but now i am not sure i should have reported it because i dont have them often anymore.

    it didnt register that cumanada is for co-infections, even though i read it. very little registers due to fog (i typed "gof" about 3 times ugh)

    thanks:)

    The Babesia FISH test is probably the one you want.

    In any case, Cumanda is hard for me. I can only tolerate about 1/4 of drop, so if I were you, I'd wait until you are established on Samento--which can be hard too.

    For the FISH test, "I think" that you have to use an Igenex kit--or so I've been told.
