First, according to Dr. Schaller, the 1500 mg of Mepron that is typically prescribed by LLMD's to those with babesia usually fails to completely eradicate the infection. So not only is the drug pricey, current doses aren't curative. Although he didn't specify to me what doses would be curative, he alleges that his patients are cured of babesia in nine weeks when he prescribes them doses higher than 1500 mg. So if you want to know more, I would suggest contacting him at his website: www.personalconsult.com. He adds that flavored organic oils made by Fronteir mask the horrible flavor of the drug and increase its absorption.
Likewise, he refutes the notion that Malarone, when combined with another medication, is curative for the infection, stating that no fully blinded trials have ever proven that any combination involving Malarone and other drugs to be effective. What's more, even though it may be cheaper than Mepron, Malarone, according to Schaller, is only a fraction of liquid Mepron's potency.
Furthermore, he contends that the herbs enula and cryptoleptis, while they have proven to be useful, in tests have not proven to be curative, either. Enula's effectiveness has only been based on clinical response, and cryptoleptis has yet to be tested at length in Lyme disease patients.
He also hinted that artemisia, in higher doses than what are most often prescribed, can be curative.
So for now, it seems that Dr. Schaller believes that of the above remedies, only Mepron and perhaps artemisia, in higher doses than those typically prescribed, have proven to be curative for babesia. He didn't disregard the above herbs as useless, but believed that more tests needed to be done to determine just how effective each one of these is for eradicating the disease.
