Please pm me if you use teasel root tincture, or noni, and have had success with either...I would like to find a reputable supplier, the organic supplier I typically purchase from does not have either one, and looking online at all the brands of mass-produced supplements just confuses me more...help?

I am taking Teasel Root tincture, the only success I have had so far is that it causes me to herx. I haven't been taking it very long.

The sources I know of are below and LadyB is out until Nov.10 as I just wrote to her to order some.

Also go to LadyB's web site and read her interesting Lyme Story and Teasel.

http://www.ladybarbara.net

From LadyB

"The only sources of Teasel Root Tincture made from FRESH wild Dipsacus sylvestris that I'm aware of at the moment are:

Myself here in Oregon http://www.ladybarbara.net/html/products.html

although I am now OUT of stock until the next batch is done on 11/10

Jean's Greens http://www.jeansgreens.com in New York State

Woodland Essence http://www.woodlandessence.com in Cold Brook, NY

and Walker Farms http://www.walkerherbs.com/ in Arkansas, WI"

I got my teasel root tincture from my local herbalist here in Gloucester, MA. I do herx on it, but not too badly and always feel better in a couple of days.

A local herbalsit just sent me Lady B's website. So I am curious about teasel root too. Had I known about it earlier, I would have made my own tincture. I've done so with other herbs in the past.

If you are herxing on it doesn't that mean the bacteria is dying off? Why else would you herx? So that would be a good thing right?

Pleaes bear with me. I'm still new to all this and I'm having a hard time accepting the long term anti-biotic use. Especially since I'm not all that bad off most of the time.

Yes herxing is a good thing as hopefully it means the little critters are dying off, I also take grapefruitseed extract as LadyB did.

I am not taking antibiotics as I don't have access to an LLMD, but also am allergic to many antibiotics.

healing wishes, bev

Oops! I posted this in the wrong spot previously:

I've been researching this further today and found this posting on an herbal site.

http://tribes.tribe.net/herbalwisdom/thread/87a52f6d-932e- 4580-8849-0a49e8f08e5e

Seems maybe Lady B may have had an incidental kind of thing with the teasel. I'm going very slowly here with what I may or may not try. I like to always hear both sides and then make a decision.

Judge for yourselves though. Everyone is different.

Cheers,

BeeJ

i doubt it is incidental because I have been offering it to others since it helped my Lyme so much and I have been seeing encouraging results.

Do you all know about taking charcoal to relieve the worst of the herxing?

I found a medical doctor that advocated this and I began to use it with my daughter who was herxing seriously. It really helped.

Take 2 Tbl. powdered activated charcoal and put it in a 1 quart jar. Fill with water and let settle for about an hour. Begin to drink the resulting "gray water" between your other treatments. You must wait at least an hour so that you do not mess up the other supplements that you took.

Charcoal will help to clean out the toxins that are running rampant in your system as "die off".

Hope this helps.,
