Heartburn from antibiotics and Lyme disease. Any remedies for this?

Heartburn from antibiotics and Lyme disease. Any remedies for this?

Eat after meds: I'm assuming that you're probably taking doxycycline, since it's the usual first choice antibiotic for lyme disease. Doxy capsules can irritate the esophagus if they get stuck on the way down. To prevent this, eat bread or another bland solid food (not milk or dairy) right after taking doxy to push the pills down. If you've already irritated your esophagus you may need to see your doc to get meds. ...Read more

Could curcumin be the most important heart disease remedy known to medicine?

No: Curcumin is a compound from tumarec; this and other gingers contain a variety of interesting molecules, but extreme claims only discredit legitimate research into natural healing.

How effective is Valtrex (valacyclovir) for hsv? What's the update regarding the disease? Any home remedies once an outbreak is shown either for HSV 1 or HSV 2? Thnx

Very effective, yes: Valtrex (valacyclovir) is very effective for treating hsv outbreaks but, like all rx's, is not a cure. Some people with hsv almost never get outbreaks, some get them frequently- the most important factor is your immunity. Healthy diet, stress reduction, a good mulitvitamin & immune-boosting herbs like andrographis &medicinal mushrooms like reishi can help. My favorite home remedy is lemon balm.
