Buhner protocol - Lyme disease
Buhner Protocol - the world's most famous natural program for Lyme disease... In short, in 4 minutes - a summary of the book.
Are you are being treated for Lyme disease, or it's often associated coinfections like Bartonellosis, Babesiosis, Chlamydia, Mycoplasma and you don't want to neglect anything? Wondering how to boost your treatment even more? Do you know the three main aspects influencing its outcome? If not, 4 minutes devoted to this article can save you years of life.
Statistics unfortunately suggests that one in five patients becomes chronic despite antibiotic treatment. Fortunately, we can minimize this risk with herbs.
They are in particular three factors that play an important role in the treatment of Lyme disease: immunity, inflammation and infection. Unlike conventional synthetic antibiotics, which primarily eliminate infection, herbs cover all three of these factors. Natural treatment not only helps to destroy harmful pathogens, but above all creates an environment that eliminates their growth, multiplication and their negative impact.
Proof of its effectiveness is also this study, in which up to 68% of 1,829 patients described the herbal protocol in the alternative treatment of borreliosis as very effective.
In addition, almost every herb has additional broad-spectrum therapeutic potential such as antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, antitumoral, antioxidant, hormonal-modulating, detoxifying, and many others.
Note: synthetic antibiotics are also very important in the treatment of Lyme disease. They are more targeted and potent, but at the same time more aggressive (with greater side effects) compared to herbs, which are more gentle and act on several levels. Therefore, in the case of acute (fresh) phase of the infection herbs are especially recommended as adjunctive therapy (along with the use of synthetic antibiotics). At chronic borreliosis on the contrary, herbs can also serve as primary long-term gentle treatment.
