Hi, I have been dealing with the after affects of Lyme disease for several years. After stopping the antiboditics I have lingering side affects including nerve tingling in my legs in the morning. Pain on the bottom of my feet, inability to loose weight and fatigue no matter how much I sleep. A friend of mine has been taking your serrazimes for a number of years and swears by it. Do you think it would help me? I have Hasimotos disease and trust me the doctors have checked me for lupus, sgrogrens, small nerve studies, pituitary tumors, and mris of the spine. All is good. But the pain and the fatigue is there. I wonder if I too have fibro like my friend or if it damage from the lyme. I am taking thymex by Standard process and that appears to have helped with the nerve tingling. My friend said after starting the serrazimes she didnt need the pain meds they wanted her to take for the fibryo. I see it has a warning about blood thinners. Is that anything I need to be concerned about and lastly will it interact with my thyroid medicine I am taking. The reviews all seem positive.. are there any side affects? Thanks

Thank you for your great question. I work with many patients that suffer from lyme disease and many patients that suffer from hypothyroidism. There are many things to consider when it comes to your case and much of it should really be flushed out with a health care provider who is well versed in both […]

Are there any natural solutions to ear infections?

In my pediatric and family practice, ear infections (clinically called otitis media) are one of the most common acute conditions seen in children. While there are several variations on the theme of otitis media, infection of the eardrum due to a bacterial infection is the most common. What follows then, is that the conventional treatment […]

Would taking turmeric help to clear up psoriasis? If so how much and can I make it into a paste to put on my skin as well as taking it orally?

Turmeric is a great herb for healing the digestive tract and aiding the liver in detoxification.  Many herbalists postulate that improved liver detoxification helps to purge the body of toxins.  These same toxins if not eliminated through the liver often come out via the skin and can manifest as acne, psoriasis or eczema.  For internal […]

Dear Doctor, In a few weeks,I am going to start treatment for Hepatitis C. Here in the UK they are about to begin trials using Antioxidants in a 3 month prelude to the treatment in an attempt to reduce the anaemia that tends to run hand in hand with the treatment. In my humble opinion this may also assist to hasten the reduction of the viral load. I spoke about the possibility of this with my specialist and although he was doubtful about this happening, he said he would let me know at the end of the trials. Unfortunately I am not eligible to take part in these trials because I already use some antioxidants so I would not give them a correct reading. Now to get to the point. Obviously,the antioxidants that we can buy over the counter in this country are nothing like as powerful as the ones I would have obtained from the hospital so I wonder if you would tell me which ones they are and whether I can obtain them from the US. I do not know how familiar you are with the various genotypes,but I have genotype 3. This is one of the easiest to clear. I do however want to go through the treatment as comfortably as possible because as I am sure you are aware,the combination of interferon and ribavirin can be extremely uncomfortable. What would you recommend and indeed can I acquire these supplements from yourselves. I await your reply eagerly and hopefully. Thank you.

The idea of using antioxidants prior to the administration of potentially toxic medications to reduce potentially damaging side effects represents a very nice example of synergy between conventional and natural medicine.  The additionally possibility of antioxidant’s ability to reduce viral load is also an exciting possibility.  A significant amount research has demonstrated the role of […]

My son is 9 yrs old and has allergies pollen/molds/cats/dogs and has been on singular on and off for about 2 years. I periodically take him off and within a couple of days he becomes uncomfortable. I really do not like the idea of him being on medication and was wondering what you think of aller 7?

Hi, as a parent myself, I know how hard it is to see our children so miserable during allergy season! Over-the-counter drugs are great for immediate relief, but unfortunately the body tends to develop resistance to them, and they only serve to cover up the real issue. I don’t have much experience with Aller 7, […]

Dr. I have read on another herbal website that you should not take una de gato if you have an autoimmune disorder. But I have also read that it is good for inflammation and intestinal problems so maybe you could clarify this for me? Thank you

Una de Gato, also commonly known as Cat’s Claw, is a plant that grows predominantly in the rain forests of South and Central America.  In the past 10 years it has become very popular as an herbal therapy for many different health conditions.  Some of its most notable properties are related to its potent anti-inflammatory actions.  […]
