I've tried all of that I was even taking Bactrim ds and amoxicillin for the past 5 or 6 months and it's not helping at all the bacteria has become resistant to them. And most doctors I deal with don't know anything about this disease I know more than they do about it and that'd because I'm suffering from it badly. I've been taking both antibiotics 3 times daily and nothing. I think the newer cephalosporins or streptomycin or vancomycin work well but I don't have access to them. What can you do when no medical doctor will believe you??? I've had to battle this for the past 3 yrs with no one believing me meanwhile I lost significant weight and muscle mass 30lbs to be exact in a year and a half. This bacteria has really deteriorated my whole body from the inside out so I'm in desperation here. I'm scared to try the Turpentine because I don't know how my body is going to react but I'm running out of options.
