I am comfortable with this forum so I want to bring up this topic here.
I got lyme a couple years ago but cured it with antibiotics quick enough that I got no bad symptoms. But people say again and again, it doesn't really go away. I was at the northeast permie convergence and they recommended some herbal remedies to keep the numbers low.
I think somebody said japanese knotweed root, and something else too.
Could someone point me in the direction of a trusted online herb dealer they know? and also, from whom could I find out how much to take?

I'm a lucky camper to have never gotten lyme disease (as I've been bit by countless ticks..) How severe are your symptoms these days? My uncle is a forester,and had lyme as well, and was in pain til he was able to knock it out months later... Curious to know.. Peace with you -

Grazing with guinea fowl and chickens vastly reduces the number of ticks around the farm. They brush against the grass to trigger the ticks jumping response. My brother has had lyme for 10 years and at times it has been debilitating.

Living wind, not sure if yr question is to me or to Mr. chuck. I've been symptom free for 5 years. Glad yr uncle is rid of it.

Ah Lyme, the bane of my existence. I have heard estimates that as many as 1 out of 4 Americans may be carrying Lyme and it's co-infections asymptomatically. Apparently it's a bit more virulent than first believed and transferred a lot of ways besides the normal deer tick vector.
I am trying the teasel root tincture to see what results I can get from that. In the past I have used the vitamin C and Salt protocol and gotten limited success with that. I will pass on any results positive or negative.
