Definitely Strong Against Lyme Spectrum Organisms

Posted on Oct 07, 2009

8 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Recommended as the primary antimicrobial in Buhner's Lyme book, this herb is powerful. While the suggestion is to take 1 to 3 three times per day, I only took 1 per day and had such strong Herx reactions I had to stop. I will return but will have to do lower doses or a pulsing strategy. This stuff kills organisms no doubt about it. My Herx's are easy to spot...sore right shoulder, sore right hip, cramped calves, headache, severe weakness, depression, tinnitus...obviously a nervous system involvement. Andrographis gave me the same Herx as some powerful antibiotics, except maybe even stronger than ABX.

Of all the herbs in Buhner's Lyme book, I found this one the most tolerable, probably because it is helpful with mopping up Herx toxins. Haven't been on it long enough to report any good or bad. But since I can tolerate it, that itself is promising.

Lost Effectiveness When Switched to Allimax

Posted on Nov 07, 2009

I had been taking low dose of Dr Zhang's Allicin for skin infections and part of his Lyme protocol. It started working like magic within 2 days at the lowest dose. Very smelly however. Family and coworkers complained. I switched to non-odor Allimax. Even though I took a very high dose and went through an entire box in 3 days, the infections returned rapidly. No odor, but no effect either. Upon returning to Allicin of Dr Zhang, the infections immediately began healing. I also experienced mood improvement, less brain fog, energy, and well-being on Zhang Allicin, which all disappeared on Allimax. Zhang says allicin products must have the odor to be effective, and he was correct. The difference was dramatic. Now I need to try his recommendation for Chlorophill capsules to lessen the odor. Allimax, not effective at all, even at a megadoses. The service at iHerb however is excellent.

Good For Overall Health, Inflammation, Lyme

Posted on Dec 30, 2009

Purchased at iHerb

Experienced decent improvement of daily headaches with 1 cap 3 times per day. This supplement has a myriad of good benefits no matter what you take it for. I take it for Lyme as per Stepehen Buhner's book. I have not found it to be a potent Lyme buster all by itself, but it is a good player within a mix.

Hit Or Miss

Posted on May 29, 2011

2 people found the following review helpful

While this product has ingredients to increase neurotransmitters, the assumption that will help depression is naive. What if the depression is caused by inflammation? Autoimmune dysfunction? infection (ex. Lyme)? Toxins blocking receptors (lead, mercury, infections)? Receptor damage? The whole theory that depression is a deficiency of neurotransmitters is just that...a theory, and an unproven one. Other substances and ingredients that have nothing to do with neurotransmitters can powerfully impact depression in a positive way. it depends on the cause. Deficiency in neurotransmitters is a popularly assumed cause, but only one of a much larger pie. What if a person's depression is primarily norepinephrine or dopamine related? Well, in that situation you don't want any additional serotonin or gaba support. This supplement is kind of like a shotgun approach hoping for a lucky shot. Kind of pricey too.

Very Strong on Neuro-Lyme

Posted on Oct 07, 2009

Purchased at iHerb

Like Andrographis, Source Naturals Reservatrol which is mostly Japanese Knotwood, is very powerful against the Lyme spectrum organisms including ones that have penetrated the brain. Strong Herx. This stuff definintely kills bad bugs.
