In my experience recovering from babesia, one of the Lyme disease co-infections, requires combination herbal or prescription antibiotics, steps to boost the immune system, and supplements to decrease inflammation caused by chemicals called cytokines.
Boost the Immune System and Decrease Inflammation
It is critical for babesia recovery to take steps that boost the immune system. Do the first 9 steps in The Successful Treatment Recipe to do this. These steps correct sleep, decrease inflammation cytokines, help the immune system adapt to stress, correct hormone imbalances, provide essential micro-nutrients, and remove yeast overgrowth in the intestines if present.
Use Combination Antibiotics
Babesia is a blood parasite like the parasite that causes malaria. To treat it I use combinations of antimicrobials that are also used to treat malaria. Generally treatments require four to five months. This length of time is required due to immune suppression caused by Lyme. To cure babesia requires treating at least one month longer than the average length of time a red blood cell lives after it is made by the bone marrow in the center of bones. A red blood cell lives for around three months. Unfortunately there is no useful science to guide treatment decisions for babesia in someone who has Lyme. What follows is based on my experience treating babesia in Lyme disease.
The following approaches work about 85% of the time based on my experience. Dosing is for adults. All of the tier one approaches are prescription medicines.
