bsimon3 Posted August 3, 2012 Report Share Posted August 3, 2012 (edited) Hello, My PANS DS9 recently started treatment for Lyme, Erlichia, and MycoP following positive IGeneX tests and climbing MycoP IgG numbers (MycoP testing from Labcorp). DS's first episode was in Feb08 (tics). He is taking Augmentin in AM & PM and Azithromycin in the AM. He also takes VSL3 probiotic in the afternoon. Other daily supps are 10g Inositol, 1g Taurine, 1 tsp cod liver oil, and 600IU vit C. We are presently managing herx symptoms short-term with Motrin 3x daily, but will not use it more than 1-2 weeks at a time because we want to protect his liver. Dr B is the prescribing doc for the ABX & probiotics. We also checked in with Dr T to get his buy-in on the treatment plan. From my reading here on this board, I know that detox is critical to healing. None of the docs we are working with seem to be able to advise about detox. So far, I have started a detox bath of 2:1 epsom salt and baking soda. I would like to do more for him. DS is allergic to ragweed, so milk thistle is not an option. [Edited to add: DS will not swallow pills yet.] Questions from this detox newb: 1. I would like to start lemon water as well. What is the effective proportion of lemon juice to water? So far I have sliced a lemon and squeezed a couple of slices into a glass of ice water for him, but I suspect this is too dilute. I have read 1/2 lemon in some places, 1 whole lemon in others. It needs to be palatable and not too hard on his teeth enamel however. Does it matter if the water is warm or cold? How many servings per day? 2. I read the post from SF mom about her detox drink here: http://www.latitudes...showtopic=18090 but I am concerned about starting this without consulting with a doctor. Before we had the IGeneX results, we had one appt with a wholistic doc who is supposedly an LLMD, but I am still forming my opinion about him (trust issues from so many doctors over the years!), so I feel a little stuck. Am I being a wimp about this? Is this the type of detox stuff people do with or without a doctor? So, what to do & how to get started? Is there a good thorough "detox playbook" out there that anyone can refer me to? Your help is so appreciated!
