ABOUT DOSAGES: While we are happy to provide you with a comprehensive selection of herbs recommended by Stephen Buhner, please note that we ourselves are not naturopathic practitioners. Because of this, as per FDA regulations, our team is unable to offer any information that may be misconstrued as medical advice, prescription, or diagnosis.
This means that we cannot recommend personalized dosages for this protocol.

Before purchasing this package, please understand (either by reading Healing Lyme, working with a naturopathic doctor, or other means of research) what dosages will be necessary for your preferred treatment plan and order accordingly, so that there are no lapses in the protocol.

You may purchase each of the tinctures offered in this package individually from our Buhner Herbs collection if you need more than what is provided.

We highly recommend working with a Lyme-literate integrative medicine doctor or practitioner to help you along your healing journey, as it can often feel frustrating and overwhelming to do alone!
