Your book is called Healing Lyme. Does this mean you can be completely healed of chronic lyme from your protocol? I have been very ill and bedridden for almost 2 years with no help from antibiotics. I have recently started looking into and trying herbs and also a raw food diet with juicing. I have started to feel better after 2 years of 24/7 suffering and ready to give up. BUT I am on a mission to completely heal that is my ultimate goal and I will not give up until I reach that goal. So, can you HEAL lyme with your protocol or does it just suppress symptoms? I have read of people becoming symptomatic again after stopping your protocol. Thank you!
From what I have seen over the past years about 70-80% of people clear it completely using the protocol, 10-20% continue to need some sort of supportive protocol, that is, the symptoms are gone while on it but return to some extent if it is discontinued completely, and about 5-10% don’t respond to the protocol.
Stephen Harrod Buhner was an Earth poet and an award-winning author of twenty-four books on nature, indigenous cultures, the environment, and herbal medicine including the acclaimed book Healing Lyme: Natural Healing & Prevention of Lyme Borreliosis & Its Co-infections.
Stephen came from a long line of healers including Leroy Burney, Surgeon General of the United States under Eisenhower and Kennedy, and Elizabeth Lusterheide, a midwife and herbalist who worked in rural Indiana in the early nineteenth century. The greatest influence on his work, however, was his great-grandfather C.G. Harrod who primarily used botanical medicines, also in rural Indiana, when he began his work as a physician in 1911.
Stephen’s work has appeared or been profiled in publications throughout North America and Europe including Common Boundary, Apotheosis, Shaman’s Drum, The New York Times, CNN, and Good Morning America. Stephen lectured yearly throughout the United States on herbal medicine, the sacredness of plants, the intelligence of Nature, and the states of mind necessary for successful habitation of Earth.
He was a tireless advocate for the reincorporation of the exploratory artist, independent scholar, amateur naturalist, and citizen scientist in American society – especially as a counterweight to the influence of corporate science and technology.
