Primary Provoking Action of A-L Complex:
This herbal formula is designed to activate the immune system against all forms of Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb). It will stimulate the immune system against the spirochete form of Bb. It has the capacity to penetrate the Bb cyst. A-L will work intracellularly against the cell wall deficient forms of Bb. It can be used in the treatment of acute and chronic Bb. It will work on all strains of Borrelia. This formula will support the suppressed immune system that results for chronic exposure to these bacteria.
Secondary Provoking Actions of A-L Complex:
This formula is designed with the assumption that Borrelia never comes alone. Babesia, Bartonella, Ehrlichia, and probably Mycoplasma often accompany it. To a lesser degree A-L supports the immune system to address these co-infections.
Lyme disease has a progressive immune suppressive effect. The more chronic the infection the more the patient experiences an overgrowth of opportunistic organisms. This formula helps address these infections and decrease the pathogen load. The herbs in this formula have historically been used against a wide number of bacteria, viral, fungal, and parasitic organisms. These include Staph, Strep, Fungal and Candida forms, Trichomonas, Chlamydia, (among others).
