I would like to share with everyone my treatment success story in the hopes that it can help many of you. I used the cpn protocol found in Buhner's Healing Lyme (2015 edition) I followed it closely while taking plenty of binders/detox and have been able to reverse my cpn. I now test negative. Prior to the protocol I followed a strict AIP diet and replaced all personal care and home care products with natural non-toxic alternatives. I continue to follow both of those practices. I used the Buhner protocol for 3 months to clear my infection. Some may need to go longer or take maintenance doses. I worked with an herbalist (Buhner's partner) for guidance. I started each herb one at a time in half doses and worked up to full dose before adding the next herb. Once all herbs were onboard, I considered that day as day #1 of treatment. Herxing is to be avoided - it means too high a dose or not enough binders/detox. After 3 months of treatment my cpn numbers came down and are now negative. I'm thrilled with my results and hopeful that my testimony will encourage some of you to give this approach a try. For those of you who believe antibiotics are the only way, I am proof that herbals are powerful and effective.
