Natural antibiotics; Berberine

Recommended Posts

We have an ND that we have been using for diet changes to help with Tics, etc, and she uses Berberine (a natural antibiotic) with her other patients when an antibiotic is needed. (She has never treated PANDAS.)

 

ND's can not prescribe in Georgia. We are still "interviewing" MD's on the phone to see if we can find one familiar with PANDAS.

 

Has anyone used Berberine to treat PANDAS? If so, was it successful?

 

Thanks.

Heidi

Here is a good review of berberine. Stephen Buhner does spend some time discussing it in his Herbal Antibiotics, 2nd Edition: Natural Alternatives for Treating Drug-resistant Bacteria, but doesn't use it in either the bartonella or babesia protocols which is what we are using at the moment.

Yet it is important to understand what the berberine plants do and what they do not do when used as medicine for their antibiotic qualities. They work almost exclusively on the digestive system. They do NOT work on systemic infections. What this means is that berberine plants are wonderful for infections or overgrowth in the digestive system – things such as small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) or cholera..

We have not tried berberine, but we are using three other herbal abx (sida acuta, cryptolepis, and alchornea) and 6-8 herbal antivirals with great success. We are using Buhner's protocol for EBV since our kiddo is mainly a viral kiddo. So far, it has worked awesome for moods and behaviours AND her titers are dropping as well as proof to doc that is working :D.
