San77 and myself chose the "Antibiotic Protocol". I myself choose it over Methotrexate and any other medication, some people are on Methotraxate for a short period of time until AP(Antibiotic Protocol) kicks in and then discontinue it. There where some people, that wanted to know what a Herx is. It is a getting worse, before one gets better. Depending on what Autoimmune disorder you have it is different from person to person. When mycoplasmas and other bacterias die off they release toxins in your system. The body has sometimes a hard time to get rid of those fast enough. You hurt more,nausea, dizzyness,soreness,fatigue, headaches, etc.are the result.It usually is slowed down by adjusting the Antibiotic dose to less or by taking it every other day. This is a low dose, longterm treatment with practicly almost no side effects (yeast infections are the most common and can be prevented by eating probiotics). I am very happy about a friend of mine who had RA since 2003 and after 3 years on AP is in remission!Her RF of 820 is now back to normal as well as the rest of her blood counts. She also was on Prednisone when she needed it.She is off any pain killers since 3 month now and stays on a low dose of Minocycline to prevent any relapse. Maybe she will be able to even discontinue that after some time.She went through several really bad Herxes during her ill times to the point where she was almost ready to give up.Her advice to me was: pull it through! And I will!
