In Stephen Buhner's book Healing Lyme (page 88) he notes with regard to Andrographis: “I suggest the use of the standardized herb in the treatment of Lyme disease. These preparations normally contain 300mg of standardized constituents and 100mg whole herb—400mg total.”
Suggested Dosage: 1 capsule 2 x day with food or water
Precautions: Stephen Buhner notes that some people have reported allergic reactions to andrographis. Primarily the reaction is a rather severe skin rash which will resolve if you stop taking the herb, though it might take a week or so. Anti-inflammatories such as cortisone creams are not necessary; it will clear up on its own. Discontinue use if you have a reaction. If you are one of the very few that does experience a reaction, you can continue the rest of the herbs in the core protocol, simply deleting Andrographis.
