Teasel - a powerful herb to Fight Chronic Lyme Disease:
NOTE: Take Smilax to help with herxing and continue on treatment until symptoms are gone for at least two months (as per Jenna, not a licenced medical practitioner, just a fellow Lymie trying different tools)
The following information was taken from "The book of herbal wisdom: using plants as medicine."
By Matthew Wood
In Mr. Wood's experience, 100% of the Lyme patients he has treated with teasel have had immediate relief from symptoms.
The following is recommended:
DAY ONE 1 single drop! DAY SIX 2 / 2 / 2
DAY TWO 1 drop, 1 drop DAY SEVEN 3 / 2 / 2
DAY THREE 1 drop/ 1 / 1 DAY EIGHT 3 / 3 / 2
DAY FOUR 2 drops/ 1 / 1 DAY NINE 3 / 3 / 3
DAY FIVE 2 / 2 / 1
Teasel may be taken in water, or under or ON the tongue. Tasting the bitterness can be part of the healing response. Just try not to take at exactly the same time as anything else to let it do its job. BACK DOWN on the dosage if you feel things becoming overly stirred up or symptoms aggravated. It is totally ok to skip a dose or an entire day until you catch up with yourself. In the event that Lyme or co-infections are affecting your heart, be sure to have competent medical care monitoring any flare-ups.
The best quality teasel (organic and pesticide-free) I have found is from Lady Barbara in Oregon.
