BTD Forums  /  Supp Right For Your Type  /  Cat's Claw and Larrea tridentata OK for AB's
Posted by: susanC, Monday, March 3, 2014, 10:04pm
I have just been diagnosed with Lyme's (no co-infections) and Epstein-Barr virus.  My ND has prescribed Cat's Claw and Larrea Tridentata (chaparral leaf).

I need to know if these are OK with my AB/sec blood type. I have started taking the cat's claw slowly and have noticed achy joints and muscles.  I don't know if this is because the cat's claw may be contraindicated for me, or if just a result of some die off.

Any input would be greatly appreciated. :)

Some herbs are listed in the BT Encyclopedia.

Cat's claw is listed as a type B anti-inflammatory with action as an immune modulator.

The other is not listed.

Thank you Lloyd.  I had noticed the recommendation that you speak of.

I'm wondering if there might be some other part of the dadamo website where I can check on this. My ND swears by this protocol for lyme, but I have found over the years that what works for many seldom works for me. All the supplements that I take now (which are many) are BT/GT specific. I am wary of anything nowadays that is not specifically for me.

I was hoping to find a Lyme protocol in the BT encyclopedia, but I could find no mention.

There is a rather long thread on Lyme:

http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?b-encloplib/m-1313684812/s-0/

It probably serves as the on site repository for Lyme in the context of blood type.

Hope you find what you need.

Lyme Disease requires direct one-on-one advice and treatment.

Generalized protocols could be ineffective and possibly problematic.

Thanks for the links Lola. Lyme's seems to be quite a 'political' issue in the US. The AMA is in denial about how serious and widespread a health issue it is. Wouldn't it be great if it was just a matter of a few courses of antibiotics? which many treatments involve.

I intend to follow the protocol prescribed by my ND. I was merely inquiring as to whether there were any sources at dadamo.com that would indicate blood type compatibility with these two herbs. My ND honors my adherence to the BT/GT way. (It was she, afterall, who first told me about the ER4YT book back in the '90's.) We haven't been able to ascertain this. I have made the decision to proceed cautiously with her protocol.

I am also working with an MD at the Amen Clinic who believes strongly in hyperbaric treatment for Lyme's and many other pathogenic conditions--as well as healing the brain.

I will update this thread from time to time to report on my results with these two protocols--in the event that there are those out there who might benefit from my input.

Many thanks to you and Lloyd for your interest.

as Lloyd mentioned about catsclaw...;)... I'd go also for boswellia or serrata or cartherii, enzyme therapy and or also have an eye into/onto the healing mushrooms as well ;) ;D....+ - are all antiviral-fungal and antibacterial....(book2)(smarty)(ok)
you also might want to use l'lysine and or olive leaf :D...
