Astragalus and neuro lyme

by | Jul 29, 2012 | astragalus, Columns, Healing Lyme, Herbs | 0 comments

Dear Stephen,
It’s believed that I have chronic lyme. I went to see a new naturopath who specializes in lyme and he recommended Health Concerns Astra 8, which is astragalus based (along with eleuthero root, ginseng root extract, schizandra fruit, ligustrum fruit, oryza sprout, licorice root). He said that you only need to avoid astagalus if you have neurological lyme and he doesn’t think that I do. The only information I can find says to avoid astragalus in the case of chronic lyme. There is no mention of neurological lyme. He also has me taking Green Dragon Botanicals LB Core. I’m wondering what your thoughts are about it?
Stephen’s response:
I would not worry about it in this instance. That is a good mix.

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.
