Over the past few weeks, I have re-started treatment for babesia. I don't know which strain (or strains!) I still have, but the doomsday duncani might be involved because six thousand milligrams of artesunate per day isn't giving me herxheimer reactions. Nightmares, perhaps, but that's about it. So far.
By the way, I do not advise taking 6,000 mg of artemisia without your doctor's approval. This is a much higher dose than those that have typically been used for babesia. Indeed, many people herx on a mere 100 mg of artemisinin, and artesunate is even more powerful than artemisinin.
So what else can you do if you have this dreaded strain of babesia? Well, if you don't want to experiment with the harsher drugs, you might consider using a homeopathic remedy containing the energetic blueprint of this parasite. Other herbs, such as mora, enula and cryptoleptis might also be helpful, but their effectiveness is still somewhat unproven and so treatment with these is experimental. MMS might also work, but I would suggest doses upwards of 15 drops a day, as I maintained this dose for four months and it wasn't sufficient to get rid of my infection. Thirty or more drops per day may be required, for at least several months, if not longer.
But persevere...there must be a solution for duncani out there somewhere! We must simply keep on the path and keep trying new treatments as they emerge.
