I first tried liquid Samento when I failed antibiotics. I had no insurance at the time so I could only try a few cheap antibiotics, and I didn’t want to go the IV route yet. I asked about Samento, and my doc said he had heard good things about it but did not know if it worked for everyone. He said I could try it, see how it worked for me. so I did.
Ordered some online from Vitacost, nice sized bottle for $17.00, Source Naturals brand (which I can’t find now by the way in liquid. Not sure why). Anyway. After 2 weeks I felt a difference. And it couldn’t have been placebo since I really didn’t think it was going to work.
It got me about 80% with residual deconditioning after being sick for a few years. Then I hit a plateau. I tried to use it later and I started getting severe tooth pain whenever I would start it again (story for another day) so I just left it alone for a while.
Fast-Forward to yesterday. I had been wanting to get back on it again since I figured out the tooth problem but was afraid it would make me too sick to work. I never really had much in the way of side-effects from it, but it would sometimes make me a bit sicker than usual. Nothing as bad as doxy ever did though. But I had a new job I didn’t want to risk.
So Sunday, fed up with feeling really awful I took about 1/2 a dropperful. I wouldn’t recommend that to those who have never used it before, but I am sort of used to it. I figured lately I had been feeling so crappy because of some crud the boy brought home from school that my immune system couldn’t fight off, the Lyme coming back, or a mixture of both. Thought it would take at least a week or to get any better.
TWO HOURS LATER I felt well enough to clean up the storage room; something I had been wanting to do for weeks. Only about an hour’s worth of work but for the past many weeks, 10 minutes of straight cleaning was all I had if I was lucky. Had some phlegm bugging me as well–that is mostly gone too today.
I know it doesn’t always work like this, and maybe it was just a fluke, but I recommend this stuff to anyone who needs something else to try.
Here is a link for more info on the herb and any possible drug interactions, etc. SAMENTO
You don’t have to believe any of that, or what I say. Just try it, expect nothing, and see what happens. I don’t know if it says at the link or not, but it has been used for chemotherapy patients to build up their white cells. That is its basic mechanism of fixing Lyme. I don’t have a very good immune system so maybe those who DO have a working immune system won’t get much benefit.
Let me know how it goes!
Again, I can’t find the stuff I have used by Source Naturals so the next brand I am going to try is the NutraMedix.
