Astragalus – never indicated for late stage lyme?

Dear Stephen,
I’m interested in adding astragalus to my protocol. However Healing Lyme says it is contraindicated. I have “chronic lyme” plus many coinfections, including ehrlichia, babesia, and herpes simplex (for possibly 20+ years). The description in your book seems to cover many of my complaints including chronic fatigue, ehrlichia, chest pains, neuroborreliosis and more. Is it never indicated in late stage?

Stephen’s response:
You can try it and see how it works for you; none of this is written in stone. If you end up feeling worse, discontinue it.

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.
