Treating mycoplasma naturally

by | Oct 4, 2010 | bacterial infections, Co-Infections, Columns, Healing Lyme

Dear Stephen,
I am allergic to gluten so using wheat germ to combat mycoplasma is not an option for me. Do you have any other suggestions for dealing with mycoplasma infections?

Stephen’s response:
Here is what I would suggest for treating mycoplasma:
Serrapeptase: 1 capsule daily on empty stomach – this will help make the mycoplasma more vulnerable to the herbs.
Raintree Nutrition Myco formula – this is a great combination formula for mycoplasma and reports I have heard show it is pretty effective for most people.
Cryptolepis as a systemic antibiotic. 1 tsp 3x daily (
Mycoplasma actually likes gluten so it is good you aren’t eating it – avoid white sugar as well and also nuts and seeds and any oils that come from them.
I would highly recommend bee pollen to help replace the amino acids that the mycoplasma are consuming. 1 tbl daily in the a.m.
And to help your adrenals and energy I would highly suggest the muscle tone formula from Woodland Essence which is composed of pine pollen, aralia, and American ginseng tinctures. 1 dropperful 3x daily.
If your energy is really low the use of eleutherococcus tincture (HerbPharm brand only) is essential. 1 tsp a.m. and noonish.
A general multi-vitamin supplement plus extra C, D, E, CoQ-10, beta-carotene, quercetin, folic acid, bioflavoids and biotin are necessary and helpful when recovering from a mycoplasmal infection.

    Stephen comes 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, has been 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 lectures 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 is 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.

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.
