I have been reading about the vitamin c /salt protocol and at this point after 2 years of treatment with antibiotics and very little improvement I would like to try something else, since recently I started to fell sick again.

I would like to hear if anyone has try this protocol, I have my doubts and I am and bit worried that maybe it won't be good for my kidneys.

I appreciated any ideas / suggestions and experiences in case you he dine this protocol

    Hi Andrea, I tryed the salt/ Vit C protocol for a few days feeling optomistic that i could attack the Lyme from all sides. I'm affraid to say that after a few days I aslo gave up as well because I felt ill from it and my husband who is a scientist kept telling me how dangerous it can be to take large quantities of salt. I am going to wait and talk to my consultant next time I see him ( apprx 1 months time) and will let you know what he says. Its v depressing to hear that you have been on antibiotic treatment for 2 yrs with little positive effect. Im 6 months in on varios strong antibiotic treatment and I feel dreadful, worse than I used to as before my symptoms were to a greater extent managed by immune suppressants and steroids for 5 yrs. I was diagnosed originally with inflamatory arthritis and chronic fatigue.

     Ill kep in touch.

      Hi and thanks for your info. I read about the vitamin c protocol in the book top 10 lyme treatments and they say you will fell very sick but that will be a good sign, but I still not sure about it. I wanted to hear someone who has try it and what was their experience with it. 

      yes my treatment with a lyme specialist has not give good results as my lyme test still come back positive.i think that the main reason why my tratment has not been succesfull it is because I have been taking the same antibiotics for so long periods because I could not afford to be test more often, I didnt have enough money to make the treatment as my specialist doctor suggested.

      I will briefly explain my treatment in case this info can be usefull for somebody.


      We first start we an extreme diet which purpose was to eliminate candida licky gut and food intolerance. It last about 4 months. (This has been the time I fell the best)

      Next we started with antibiotics first I took chlaritromicin 500mg ×3 a day for 6 months.

      Then azitromicin 500mg × 3 times a week +doxicicline 200mg daily also almost 6 months.

      Since January this year I began to take azitromicin also 3 times a week plus minocin 200mg plus Rifaldin 300 mg daily

      because I have been felling sick again a week ago my doctor considered I should have a time off from antibiotics and start a detox . lets hope this will help a little.
