Astragalus okay for “accelerated” lyme?

Dear Stephen,
I was recently diagnosed with acute acclerated lyme disease and I want to add your protocol to my antibiotics. I was bitten in early September and began treatment then. I just began pulse treatment with my Dr. in Fort Mill, SC and wondered if because I was an accelerated case, I needed to be careful with the astragalus as I know it can be contraindicated when you have chronic lyme. I just don’t want anything to take away from the end goal at this time. Thank you.

Stephen’s response:
No, take the astragalus. It should be fine.

This protocol was incredible. After only a few weeks most of my symptoms were gone. After six months all my symptoms were gone… it has given me my life back.
