Dear takemylife,

As you can tell from my last post to you I have been researching some of the stuff you talk about. I am just beginning the process and started with something the homeopatic doctor gave me a few years ago. It was called alpha-max and is supposed to help with the alkilinity. When he tested me for heavy metals and then sent my hair sample off it came back with tin and nickel as the high levels. He gave me cysteplus (sp) to rid me of this but it didn't do anything so he tested me with his magnets (certainly a different kind of exam than the norm) and discovered I was not digesting the cysteplus and he had me get Betaine HCI to help with the digestion. The next time I saw him the tin and nickel were gone. It obviously was a digestion problem.

He also kept harping on hormone issues and I just chocked it up to menopause and wasn't really having any symptoms so didn't pay too much attention. I have never taken hormones and with all the bad publicity was really glad I hadn't. If what you say is right then my hormones could be screwed up from the lyme too and that was why he was getting that reading about them with the magnets. I am so frustrated and planned on going to see him again in the next week or two and your thread has really made my mind up that it will be sooner than later. I have also been studying samento too and have found a lot of interesting info on some trials that were run in conjunction with antibiotic therapy.

I often think of the ER doctor who saw me after the neurologist loaded me with solu-medrol and about killed me. The ER doctor told me that it wasn't MS in his opinion and that some holistic type doctor would probably be the one to figure out what it is and would treat appropriately. Maybe he was right.

I'm not quite ready to jump ship on the antibiotics but am definitely going to spend a lot of time researching as you apparently have. I thank you for the kick in the pants and hope you are still doing great. Please keep me posted on your progress and if possible I still say I would love to know exactly what you have done and what to expect if you have it documented. You know that we are all praying for you to be the one since ekim feels Dr. Zhang's treatment is a bust.

It is my understanding that you need too do cat's claw for 8 months to a year and a half also. Is this what you have discovered? I know some other people are doing it too and some are doing it with antibiotics and I am not sure who says that's okay. Maybe an llmd. Maybe cat's claw doesn't create a problem if you want to do antibiotics too. I don't know.
Many questions but I will continue to find answers. Please share yours too.

Thanks again for the above thread it gives one food for thought.

It sounds like you have a great doc. I am doing better then i have been in 8 years. I only used the cats claw for a short period of time. Maybe that would be beneficial in addition to my current protocal. Right now, I am seeing so much of a toxic response from my body in the form of shakes and itchiness, there is no point for me to use anything else. Eventually when I've knocked out much of the bacteria, I can use Cats Claw as a booster, but I feel strongly that it will not be necessary.
