Dear Stephen,
In a previous Q & A you suggested cryptolepis/sida acuta/alchornea to treat MARCONS. Could you tell me how to go about making the nasal spray and how to dispense it? Your protocol has brought me farther in 9 months than all previous treatments that have been ongoing for years. Thank you for all that you do for the lyme community. Your willingness to share information has brought many of us much closer to good health! Thank you!

Stephen’s response:
There is an in-depth herbal medicine making chapter in the new edition of Herbal Antibiotics (SECOND edition) that goes into detail in that. It covers it better than I can here.

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.
