Taking enzymes and will start an abx protocol for Lyme disease.Will the enzymes affect the abx by reducing its effects?How many hours between them?

Caution re: abx !: Antibiotics work great for those recently infected with lyme but, based on extensive experience, often do more harm than good in chronic lyme.

A known person of age 16 started taking 100 mg cetirizine per day. planning to continue for next few months.will any chronic disease attack her with ?

Dr. Says i need heart cath on both sides of my heart. Im  scared is it safe? My family has a history of heart disease.Will i be ok?

You should not be frightened, but be sure that it is indicated. Fh alone does not suffice, but it is a risk factor. Risk factors, coupled with symptoms (chest symptoms or breathlessness) coupled with abnormal functional studies might suffice. ...Read more

Healing: Each case is different regarding healing of an extraction socket and bone filling in.
