Raintree’s Myco for mycoplasma infections?

by | Nov 8, 2011 | bacterial infections, Co-Infections, Columns, Healing Lyme | 3 comments

Dear Stephen,
I was wondering if you think it would be beneficial to add Raintree’s Myco product into the lyme protocol to help eradicate mycoplasmas that may co-exist? Truly, I mistakenly ordered it from iHerb, thinking I’d ordered cat’s claw. I’d appreciate your thoughts.

Stephen’s response:
It can’t hurt to use it and I have heard from a few people that it has helped.

    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.

    I don’t know if you are familiar with the late doctor Thomas McPherson Brown, he helped thousands of patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis and other forms of arthritis with antibiotics. In his work he discovered Micoplasma infections were the root cause of these diseases.

    I ordered your book Herbal Antibiotics and checked out your web site and saw people were using MYCO to treat Micoplasma infections….so I decided to try herbal antibiotics and have been using MYCO from Raintree (iHerb) about 2 weeks now. My RA pain continues to lessen, I am taking as directed on bottle. A great side effect has been that my finger nails are growing like never before and they are really strong, this is an outward sign…I am hoping that on the inside my teeth, bones and joints are getting stronger too. Also, I have had more energy which is great because I have suffered for years with a chronic fatigue….I’ve never been checked for Lyme Disease but remember mother picking the ticks off me when we would take trips to river/woods.

    I haven’t added anything else at this time because I don’t want to be confused as to what is working and what isn’t….not sure how long to take MYCO, playing that part by ear. I really enjoy your site and the information found here. Thanks for your time.
