Default Re: Connection Between ALS and Lyme disease?

Doxycycline is still the drug of choice to kill Lyme, and also if the co-infection of Ehrlichia is present. I have been on it for one year and have my life back - I would say 95% improvement. Doxy or any other AB must be begun extremely slowly and increased very slowly; if full-dosage ABs are given right from the start the Herx reactions will be unbearable and dangerous and there is no need to handle it this way. Slow is best. Also, as these pathogens die, neurotoxins are released in the system and detox is necessary as the body may not be able to handle the load efficiently. The preferred detox through my LLMD (Lyme Literate MD) is quite easy and very effective. If you would like more info, let me know.
