I spoke with Dr. Cowden recently and he agreed with my concern about parasites being a big
part of the chronic Lyme problem.
Dr. Cowden explained that it is important to start any Lyme killing protocol by attacking and
eliminating the largest pathogens first and then moving down to bacteria then finally viruses and
Many parasite detox products work for a short time but many parasites reproduce so quickly and
in such large quantities that it is imperative to stay on a strong program for 8 weeks before starting the
Lyme protocol. However if you are already on antibiotics or the Cowden protocol or some other killing
protocol just dive in and do the parasite protocol at the same time. Expect to feel worse before you
feel better. Dr. Cowden recomend Nutramedix products to detox from the herxes (see Cowden protocol) but I have
found Sarsaparilla (Smilax) to be very economical and
effective. I take 4 daily and more if needed during a herx.
For parasites: Start 8 weeks prior to Lyme protocol: Food Grade DE (keep away from face) 1 tsp in 1 cup of water before breakfast (after 2 bites) and
dinner 5 days on and 2 off; Artemesinin by Nutricology, 3 caps 2x day; Enula50 drops twice a
day for 8 weeks (all 5 days on 2 days off) then full moon cycle (2 days before, day of full moon and 2 days after
