    Teasel Root - Lyme?
    maryj42 posted:
    My non medical doctor thinks I have Lyme Disease not fibro. So I'm taking Teasel Root that I ordered online - liquid 3 times a day 3/4 drops on the tongue directly.

    I'm appeasing him by taking it to see if it works. I'd been tested for Lyme years ago and it came out negative but the tests weren't very reliable then.

    I figured for $60 buck its worth a try. He has chronic lyme and things everyone has it. we'll see.

    fitzgift - I know some of my friends with fibro have greatly been helped by Neprinol. It's an enzyme supplement engineered by Arthur Andrew Medical that works to digest fibrin. One of my friends started taking it this winter when she visited me and I gave her mine. She wrote back two weeks later to say she hadn't felt this good in YEARS. Also, if you DO have lymes, I more recently became acquainted with products by a company called Won With Nature. Email the company - the owner is really good at getting back to you within a day or two. There is an entire "kit" for lyme support. He also has a phenomenal product line to tune up your organs! Getting your body into an alkaline state and ridding yourself of all the waste that creates inflammation is SO helpful. Best of luck in your health!
