Healing Lyme
Chlamydia pneumonaie and porphyria
with Stephen Harrod Buhner, master herbalist


Dear Stephen,
I have been dealing with chemical sensitivity, Epstein Barr and Lymes and am using herbs, Rife, Carnivora, and flower essences. But have still kept getting worse. Recently got a diagnosis of porphyria which may be genetic and/or may be triggered by infections, chemical sensitivity or metals. A week later I was diagnosed with chlamydia pneumoniae. This infection can produce secondary porphyria. All the practitioners I’ve seen – even the alternative ones – say that the only way to treat the chlamydia p. is with antibiotics for 6-18 months. I have avoided antibiotics for the last 20 years – except for 1 ten day course. Also many drugs, including some antibiotics can trigger pophyria attacks. Have you worked with chlamydia pneumoniae, and do you know of herbal, nutritional or homeopathic treatments? Do you know anything about natural treatment for porphyria? I am in bad shape, live in a rural area, and have doctors who do not know anything about porphyria and not much about treating multiple infections. Any advice would be appreciated.

Stephen’s response:
I would recommend…

For chlamydia
Luteolin 200-400 mg daily, cryptolepis 1/2 tsp 3x daily.

For porphyria
Adenosine monophosphate (AMP) 200 mg daily for min 30 days, EPA/DHA blend (cod liver oil, fish oil) 10 grams daily for a minimum of 60 days.

The luteolin is ridiculously expensive, nevertheless it does work.

    PORPHYRIA: Am happy to help answer questions about Porphyria. My brother and I both have Hereditary Coproporphyria which is one of the acute Porphyrias. There are many types of Porphyria and it is highly under diagnosed because one must be in an active attack before the enzyme by products are detected in testing. So one can have Porphyria but not have a positive test result at one time and have a positive test result at another. Some doctors think it is so rare that they then assume no one has it. More and more people are being diagnosed with Porphyria because there are more labs who handle blood, urine, and feces more correctly than in the past.
