Lymes Disease Treatment Protocol

Teasel Root Tincture

This is taken from

Scroll down for treatment table. Herbal tinctures are taken in a small amount of water. The idea is that you build up gradually so that the effect of the Teasel Root Tincture does not shock the system. Once you have built up to 9 drops daily you can continue in this fashion until 28 days as a minimum. Matthew Wood recommends gradual reduction once symptoms have improved. This treatment protocol can be repeated.

NB: Herxheimer reaction: when anything you take is particularly effective and kills off a lot of bacteria you may experience healing aggravation symptoms. This does not happen to everybody and when it does occur it is usually mild. As the body detoxifies, it is not uncommon to experience flu-like symptoms including headache, joint and muscle pain, body aches, sore throat, general malaise, sweating, chills, nausea or other symptoms. Your lymph glands may well become swollen and overloaded. Matthew Wood advises: if this occurs in the first few days of treatment do not increase the dose, reduce the dose to the level you were at on the previous day. Keep at this level until your symptoms have gone. If they continue to increase, or if they have not got better after a few days, reduce down to the prior day’s level of dose.


If your reaction is severe, cease treatment and seek medical advice.
