Some info on ANDROGRAPHIS, part of our 6 week Lyme protocol! ❤️
“The herbs Andrographis paniculata, Polygonum cuspidatum (resveratrol extract), Stephania tetranda root, and Smilax rotundifolia (common greenbriar) all have strong scientific backing in patients with ongoing symptoms and inflammation, Dr. Horowitz said.”
“Native to India, andrographis has antibacterial, antiviral, and antiparasitic properties to defend against a spectrum of microbes. The herb has immune-enhancing, cardioprotective, and liver-protective qualities. Like cat’s claw, andrographis is a staple among natural Lyme protocols.”
“Additional benefits include immune enhancement and cardioprotective effects. Andrographis also offers significant liver protection. In vivo and in vitro studies confirm that Andrographis enhances natural killer cells (NK cells) and cell-mediated immunity, while reducing proinflammatory cytokines. Excellent antiviral and antibacterial properties, important for treating Lyme disease, and important for gastrointestinal restoration. Provides coverage against viral relapse.”
“Andrographis, or green chiretta (Andrographis paniculata), has been used for centuries in China and India and may be beneficial for Lyme symptoms because it is considered anti-spirochetal, and is believed to enhance immune function, protect heart muscle, act as an anti-inflammatory (for arthritic symptoms) and enhance and protect liver function.”
“This was the case with extracts from grapefruit seeds, green chiretta (Andrographis paniculata), ashwagandha, stevia, fuller’s teasel (Dipsacus fullonum), and Japanese teasel.”
“The main compounds in the plant are called andrographolides, and they are known for their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antiviral effects. This allows androphraphis to be used as a natural immune-booster that fights infections and improves cold and flu symptoms.”
“I might consider some others like Artemisia and possibly Andrographis as it helps with modulating the immune system. Andrographis is not for everyone; it can be hit or miss for my PANS patients.”
