OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMy FB friend T asked me:

“Hi Maria, What do you feel is the best Ivermectin dose? I too believe that a parasitic
infection makes the most amount of sense, especially after rounds of Albendazole etc. have made me feel symptom free at certain stages of the
illness.  Love your work, T.
Hello T,
The more I research I
do,  and the more logic to use,  is that Lyme is a multiinfection bacterial
yes, but for sure parasitic if not by name by action of the bugs.  Borrelia goes inside the cells, Mycoplasma
too, and all the coinfections like Bartonella and Erlichia too?  Obviously Babesia is a parasite inside the
blood so it has to be added to the pot of Lyme, and then the studies of Dr Sapi  in the UNH, the Boronson’s in Norway and Dr
Fry in Texas,  all talking about
protozoans and parasites cannot be ignored as if it not happening? .. its even
funny to hear it is a bacterial infection when it really is the least bacterial
..? I think if this concept is changed treatment could be more accurate… Why? just because you
don’t kill parasites with antibiotics, as you don’t kill snakes with flea
spray!!
The dose of
Ivermectin that my Colombian Dr told me is one drop per one kilogram of weight,
in the human drops that come at 0.6% concentration, given once a week.  This means the medicine is not administered
daily, as US Drs do with the Stromectol, because the Ivermectin and the
veterinary IVOMEC (1%) stay in the body 4 to 5 days until totally eliminated.  I wonder why the Stromectol is given every
day?  Second it means a dose given
according to the person, not a formula for everybody.  In my “calculations” I get around 3
to max 12 mgs of medicine a week, while here the dose is 12 mgs three times a
day every day? … its so high it doesn’t makes sense to me…
My Col Dr said;  an acute infection should be treated with
higher doses but in a short period of time, let’s say two weeks max 4
weeks.  While a chronic long term
multiinfected patient should receive low doses for long time to clean the
infection and tons of detoxing!
 
The
“Azoles” are the proper medicines for parasites in our case more than
antimalarics due to these last ones work by immune suppression and we don’t
need that…:)  The Albenda is the
“oldest” one and stronger.  It
kills malaria too, but in long term treatment it can affect the Central Nervous
system.  Studies in children found they
were having similar symptoms as Parkinson’s such as involuntary movements, etc,
so it looks like Albenda is not for Lymies in the long run, maybe just for a
short two weeks support.  The feared
Flagyl – Metronidazole- is the always good old treatment but here in the US Drs
give 2 grs a day or IV even stronger, it can blow the liver and the heart… my
Dr told me to not use more than 750 mgs a day!!! See?  Dosing!
And from the Azoles,
the Tinidazole, in the US known as Tindamax or “Tini” how we call it,
is the youngest of the family, and it has been studied lately thank God by or
dear Dr. Eva Sapi, who found protozoan component in Lyme Disease, and she found
Tini does more than Doxy in the Lyme treatment and if you decide to use the
Doxy better accompany it with Tini to get better results; this because Doxy
alone as per CDC recommendations would only push the bacteria to go cystic
faster and people get sicker faster too! In my personal case Tindamax was not a
medicine that I felt helped me as I can swear over flagyl and Ivermectin… I
thought it was too mild and blah.. maybe for all the Lymies who have not had
any kind of anthelmintics – antiparasitics- this could save their lives?
Because tindamax and these types of medicines kill the bacteria and also
ruptures the cysts! (I attached some links of interesting articles written by
Dr Sapi and Dr J about Tindamax, below).
 So why Ivermectin?  because studies show that it can even help
with parasites, some types of bacteria and even some fungal infections? And
because it has helped me so much!!! There is so much to it and US Drs don’t
even want to try it???  I swear over the
bible I have no commercial interest in this medicine and I talk about it
because it helps me and has helped so many I found on my path, so I share the
info so each one decide if to take it or not.
I wish I could educate Drs and researchers about it.  I have given samples for free to patients,
Drs and researchers and the results are amazing… I hope it is included in most
protocols!
Thank you for sharing
with me and saying you “love my work”, I only share what I have
learned hoping it helps others, and I’m thankful with God for giving me this
opportunity!
Hope I responded your
question.  I cannot tell anyone how to
dose because I am not a Dr, so you made the right question indeed!
God bless you, God is
big!
Note: here is one
of  the studies of Dr Sapi about the use
of Tindamax: 
And this is a piece
of the blog of Dr J in his blog LYMEMD,  his amazing findings about Tindamax and his input
about Dr Sapi’s studies:  “I cannot
cover the whole Sapi study. The most exciting finding is that Tindamax
(Tinidazole) – our premier Cyst-buster, is the most effective drug overall.
This “cyst-buster” kills 90% of cysts and spirochetes: by far the
best drug. We don’t know it’s effect on L-forms, but we can guess. Tindamax
probably works by an intracellular mechanism. If this is true it should be
equally effective against L-forms.  It gets even better. Tindamax is the only drug which does a great job on
biofilm colonies as well! (not to be discussed now). More on biofilms later.
Tindamax passes the blood brain barrier and penetrates well into most tissues.
It has been effective in my patients with neurocognitive deficits –
neuroborreliosis.” The complete blog is here: http://lymemd.blogspot.com/2011/07/everything-you-thought-you-knew-about.html
I just hope testing would be more reliable so people who is recently infected could be treated properly and soon enough so they won’t suffer so long and so much as we had.!
