Find it in The Treat Lyme Book
In chronic Lyme disease Otoba Bark Extract and Cat's Claw
- kill the various forms of borrelia (the Lyme germ),
- decrease and eliminate biofilms,
- treat dormant Lyme germs that are unresponsive to prescriptive antibiotics, and
- prevent Lyme disease relapse.
In this article I describe these two herbs, how they work, and the best way to take them. I recommend taking them in a different way than they are used in other protocols or as recommended by the manufacturer.
Marty Ross, MD on Otoba Bark Extract and Cat's Claw
I am having quite a bit of success using the herbs Otoba Bark Extract and Cat's Claw tinctures even when prescriptive antibiotics are no longer working. I added these two herbs into my treatments in August of 2010 based on a research paper published in the July 2010 Townsend Letter. Eva Sapi, PhD and her research group showed that Otoba Bark Extract and Cat's Claw treat the various forms of the Lyme germ and reduce biofilm colonies.
When I first started to work with Otoba Bark Extract and Cat's Claw, I introduced them into the treatments of my patients that had plateaued on prescriptive antibiotics at a good level of health. During these plateaus I had tried various prescriptive regimens targeted at all three forms of the lyme germs and treated for biofilms with lumbrokinase to move the treatments forward without success. Many of these patients had energy levels of 80% of normal with minimal body pain and good cognition. For these patients I offered Otoba Bark Extract and Cat's Claw as a means of preventing recurrence off of prescriptive antibiotics and to possibly move the treatments forward. I started the each of these herbs as tinctures at 10 drop 2 times a day and added 1 drop per dose per day till each patient was at 20 drops 2 times a day.
To my surprise .....
