Hello to All,
Three weeks ago, I started ABX treatment with Biaxin and Malarone, and I was doing pretty well. My energy is still low and I’m still having wicked bad insomnia (probably related), but my headaches and neck pain subsided! I’ll take any victory that I can get.
Then I added grapefruit seed extract (GSE) into the mix per my doctor’s instructions, 250 mg 2x/day.
Wham! The herx hit me. Daily migraines, lightheadedness, dizziness, worsening fatigue, trouble finding my breath at the slightest exertion. So I did my usual routine of detox and aklalinization:
- Lessen the dose of the offending medicine until tolerable
- Vitamin C
- Alka Seltzer Gold
- Lemon water
- Coffee enemas
- Epsom salt baths
GSE is known to break up biofilms and cysts where the infections hide. I’d say that it’s effective!
So my body has calmed down considerably. I reduced my dose of GSE to ½ of a 125mg pill per day. I will work up slowly as tolerated. My goals now are to:
1) Find the dose of GSE that challenges me without totally disabling me, and,
2) Keep trying sleep medications until I find one that is effective. (Unfortunately, the Trazodone I was using ceased to be effective after a few months).
So I trudge forward…
