Candida Signs and Symptoms


B Extract

My fellow Lyme doctor’s who rely on antibiotics often tell me that Bartonella is the most antibiotic resistant tick borne infection they encounter. Indeed, on 90% of patients who have been on multiple rounds of long-term antibiotics I find Bartonella is the bug they have not successfully eliminated. I believe the reason for this is Bartonella’s ability to hide too deep for the antibiotics to get at. Bartonella not only goes inside the cell to hide, it tricks the cell into forming a vacuole or “safe” which provides it an additional layer of protection. Only by extracting the Bartonella out of its safe hiding place can your immune system and any killing strategy gain access to this hide and go seek champion of bacteria.

Circulation Support

Bartonella’s favorite cells to infect are the endothelial cells that line the blood vessels. One of the chief strategies it employs is inhibiting the body’s natural nitric oxide production thus altering blood flows to its own advantage and simultaneously neutering the immune system’s ability to fight the Bartonella. This product contains the key ingredient L-citrulline which enhances nitric oxide production and counteracts one of Bartonella’s chief strategies for its own survival. In addition, it has been shown that supporting nitric oxide inhibits Bartonella’s ability to shift and hide from killing strategies.

Why We Love Our Lymes Bundles

Our Lyme bundles are designed to support the body in 4 specific areas that are vital for you to heal from Chronic Lyme. I adapted this model from a strategy published by the Johns Hopkins Lyme Research Team.

This picture sums up the contrast between the oversimplified view of chronic Lyme to the medical profession and the more comprehensive view I believe is necessary for you to truly heal.

  1. Attack Lyme and Co-infections: The part that most people intuitively know. Several herbs have been shown to be extremely useful against the chronic or persister version of Lyme and other co-infections. These herbs can help reduce the infection load down so our immune system can “mop up” the rest of the Lyme Disease and finish the job (an analogy from the Columbia research team).
  2. Balancing the Immune System: Excess inflammation contributes to many symptoms, but we need the immune system to be healthy and strong in order to finish the job and help in killing any chronic microbes such as Lyme.
  3. Repairing the Body’s Raw Materials: Unfortunately, the war between your immune system and Lyme Disease/Co-infections takes place in your body. As a side effect we can get damage to nerves, joints, mitochondria, the cardiovascular system, and other parts of your body. A key part to improving your symptoms (how you feel) is helping your body repair and recover with the right raw materials.
  4. Rebuilding the Body through physical and neurological exercises: We all know if you want to get stronger you need to exercise. Nutrition and hormones and protein help but they only help if you use the arms. Similarly, you will get the best results at the end of your program by exercising your body and mind to regain your stamina and re-strengthen your body.

This bundle is designed to be part of Dr. Warren’s more complete support program for Lyme recovery. For more information please reference Dr. Warren’s Lyme Program Guide.


Why is the dose of B-extract so low?
I had more problems with B-extract with my early patients than any other formula. I tried several different preparations, dosages, and timings of this product. I eventually found (after years of experimenting and talking with other doctors) that this particular mixture, along with a lower dose, and adding it in after the rest of the Lyme protocol, I could get it in smoothly without too many hiccups. Learn from my mistakes and save yourself the trouble 🙂.
Can the herbal tinctures be combined together?
Yes, you can mix any herbs together (in this case Japanese Knotweed and Crypto).
What do I do if the herx effects are overwhelming or “show stopping” from the B-extract?
In general, my recommendation if you have a negative effect from one of the products is to take it out for a week and try it again at half the recommended dose. If you cannot tolerate things even at half dose it may be best to work directly with a professional who can better customize a program to something your body can tolerate. For B-extract in particular I found it necessary to be on one of the Lyme bundles first and then add in the B-extract after you are already taking key antimicrobial and detoxification herbs. If you did the B-extract first it typically causes dramatic increases in symptoms.
What do I do if the herx effects are overwhelming or “show stopping” from the Circulation Support?
In general, my recommendation if you have a negative effect from one of the products is to take it out for a week and try it again at half the recommended dose. For some people, this product can make a virus worse and thus a big negative reaction to this can trigger me to add in more antiviral support for 3-6 months before trying the circulation support again.
Where are the herbs that help kill Bartonella?
Herbs that have been used traditionally to kill Bartonella and/or have been found effective in modern studies against Bartonella are Crypto, Japanese Knotweed, Chinese Skullcap, and Black Walnut, and Garlic. Unfortunately there has been even less study on this important co-infection than Lyme itself and more investigation is wanted! These herbs are part of the Lyme bundles designed to be taken alongside the Bartonella Add-On.
