Posted July 1, 2013. People often ask me, which of all these pills, supplements and potions my doctor is prescribing me, do I really need to take? And I always say, if you want to half recover, or take twice as long to recover, then take half measures. Pick and choose what your doctor wants you to take. And by all means, if you don’t feel like taking something, don’t take it. Good way NOT to recover. Half measures will keep you sick, or half recovered.
If you have a credible LLMD (Lyme Literate Medical Doctor) or health practitioner, who has a great deal of experience with Lyme disease and in whom you have confidence, take what he or she tells you to take. I know it seems overwhelming, many times I wanted to throw the new bottle of pills out the 7th story window…. but there is a method to the madness. Ask questions, research, understand why you are taking certain things, but once you are satisfied that it’s all legitimate, take the full dose and take it when your doctor says to take it.
The Lyme spirochete and any other co-infection you may have brewing in your body will absolutely LOVE it if you take half measures. Half the dose or half compliance means they get half the time off to regroup and multiply.
