Okay, I'm back again, after hours on the computer last night. I tried to re-organize the basic Buhner Protocol into an easy-to-read, easy-to-follow and easy-to-order format. I know many of you lymies are brain fogged at times . . .
If there are questions or help that any of you need comment here.
***July 23, 2014 Update*** I am updating this report to now include the prices and sources for bulk powdered herbs. It turns out to be a lot cheaper to buy some of the herbs in bulk. If you are able to handle the herbs and the way they taste, you can just mix the appropriate amounts in water or some other liquid. Some folks choose to buy bulk powders and empty OO capsules and fill them up with a capsule making machine - this is also a cheaper way to do it usually. Also, some prefer bulk powders so as not to have so many gelatin capsules having to be digested by the gut.
First I will give the info and pricing for pre-made capsules. Below that, I will include the bulk info.
Here is the info and pricing if you want to buy already made capsules:
As will be seen below, it costs about $113.91 per month to do the Buhner Protocol for 6 months, using the sources I have listed. In trying to simplify it for anyone who wants to follow this protocol, I have broke down the actual cost into a per month ordering schedule and also have included how much to buy all 6 months at one time.
In summation, if you are ordering every month, here is what to order:
- 2 bottles of Cat's Claw @ $6.99 = $13.98.
- 6 bottles of Sarsaparilla @ $1.99 = $11.94.
- 1 bottle Eleuthero @ $3.49 = $3.49.
From Green Dragon Botanicals:
- 4 bottles Japanese Knotweed @ $24 = $96
If you want to order enough for all 6 months, then order the following:
- 9 bottles of Cat's Claw @ $6.99 = $62.91
- 36 bottles of Sarsaparilla @ $1.99 = $71.64
- 6 bottles of Eleuthero @ $3.49 = $20.94
From Green Dragon Botanicals:
- 22 bottles of Japanese Knotweed @ $24.00 = $528
Here is the info for where to buy the bulk herbs and how much it will cost: You will get about 600 capsules out of each pound below. Sometimes the bulk is cheaper and sometimes it is not. Some folks would rather pay a little more to avoid all the capsules sitting in the belly waiting to digest. Cat's Claw- from 1st Chinese Herbals - http://www.1stchineseherbs.com/cats_claw_inner_bark.html Order this product - 1181P - Cat's Claw Inner Bark for $18 a pound. That's $18 for about 600 capsules as opposed to approximately $17 for the same amount in already made capsules. Sarsaparilla- from 1st Chinese Herbals - http://www.1stchineseherbs.com/smilax.html Order this product - 25802P - Sarsaparilla/Similax for $27.00 a pound. That's $27 for about 600 capsules as opposed to approximately $20 for the same amount in already made capsules.
Eleuthero Root- from 1st Chinese Herbals - http://www.1stchineseherbs.com/siberian_ginseng.html Order this product - 209305- Eleuthero for $27.00 a pound. That's $27 for about 600 capsules as opposed to approximately $17 for the same amount in already made capsules.
Japanese Knotweed - from 1st Chinese Herbals - http://www.1stchineseherbs.com/hu_zhang.html Order this product - L15045P - Japanese Knotweed for $21.99 a pound. That's $22 for about 600 capsules as opposed to approximately $132 for the same amount in already made capsules. This one is a huge savings!
We are 2 families on a journey through this life. We have had lots of experiences together but, this is by far, one of the bigger adventures we have been forced into. For years, my dear friend, Teresa, had aches and pains. We spent many years reading and researching all kinds of things to find out what was wrong with her. Just this year, it was confirmed that she has Late Term Disseminated Lyme So, this blog is our attempt to share her story, our finding outs and hopefully, help someone else along if they have the same thing or possibly are wondering if they have lyme.
