One of the books that I enjoyed the most in my Lyme journey was "Healing Lyme" by Stephen Buhner. I also had the privilege of doing an article with Buhner after having met him at conferences a couple of times. He's a super human being and great healer.

I've personally had good results with various Buhner recommendations but have felt that people find it difficult at times to find all of the things they may need to do a protocol based on his work. Thus, I wanted to mention a couple of products based on the Buhner work that may make things a little easier as they combine many of his ideas into a comprehensive product. Though this may not be the best option for everyone, it certainly brings some conveniences with it.

1) The first is Green Dragon Botanicals "LB Core". It contains Japanese Knotweed, Andrographis, Cat's Claw, Sarsaparilla, and Dandelion. They also have a liquid version for children and offer a number of single herbs that may be quite helpful for people with tick-borne infections.

2) The second option is BioPure Quintessence. It contains Andrographis, Smilax, Stephania, Japanese Knotweed, and Red Root in a liquid tincture. The taste is a bit bitter due to the liquid Andrographis, but many people (myself included) have had good results with it.

 3) The final option is the "Lyme Tea" prepared by Julie Mitchell, RH(AHG). I blogged about that option previously here.

I'd love to hear about additional products that incorporate several of the Buhner recommendations into easy-to-use options.

So, if you have any others that you have found to be beneficial, please let me know your thoughts.
