It appears that stevia extract treats lyme disease far better than any of the official antibiotics.

For those of you who want to find out more about this, and avoid all the loony anti-allopathy sites, this was the actual study:  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26716015.  

I would not drop the doxycycline or amoxicillin (standard treatment) if it were me, but would simply use the stevia as an adjuvant (supporting treatment).  Although, studying the images of treated cultures and the apparent amazing effectiveness of the stevia,  it would appear that the adjuvant should be the antibiotics and the main treatment the stevia.  Either way, the two together seem to be by far the best option.

Read the article but how much Stevia do you need to take per day? I think this is a great piece of information that we need to post somewhere if TSHTF it is an alternative if people are out in the woods and get Lyme.

So all you smart computer kids post this somewhere on this site where people can see it and use it if necessary.

Again any of you medical people can you tell us how much Stevia to take per day?

The study did not approach that question, so all I can give you is an educated guess.   

The amount of stevia which produced an effect was 10 microgrames in a mililitre of water.   That equates to 10 milligrammes per litre.  We have 4 litres of water in our bodies (approximately) so that works out at 40 miligrammes in our blood to be an equivalent dose.  The most important missing bit of information is the length of time stevia stays in the bloodstream.  We just do not know that.  Even then there are a few guesses still remaining, like what ways does the bacterium differ in its behavior between our bodies and the petri dish, and what ways do other substances in our bodies modify stevia's behavior.

Assuming the answer to the last two questions is: "not much!" and the answer to the first is more than 6 hours (not such a big guess as most drugs stay over 6) then getting used to very sweet coffee should be sufficient.  

I do not (to my knowledge) have lyme disease, but I do have arthritis.  3 stevia in my coffee 3+ times a day have made a huge improvement to my pain and mobility levels.  The worst joint was replaced, but ALL THE REST HAVE RETURNED TO NORMAL WITHOUT ANY OTHER DRUGS.  I can neither give you official dosages nor offer any guarantees that my problems were bacterial in origin.  But that is my best guess.

So here's the question, is it's effectiveness based on disrupting the bio-film or is it patheogen specific?

Once again, that question was not even asked, let alone answered.

I do not have anywhere near enough medical/scientific knowledge to speculate on that, you might just as well use a crystal ball.  From the point of view of alliopathy, it would be irrelevant, as the clinical result would be the same.  From a scientific standpoint; WOW what a good question!

So here goes with the unscientific speculation. 

Biofilm or not?  -I am clueless!  Hubby (WillowbyBrat) thinks that it penetrates or disrupts the biofilm which explains its positive effect on osteoarthritis.

Pathogen specific?  -I do not think so, though it may be bacteriocidal to varying degrees on other pathogens.  The loony sites claim it treats everything, even cancer!  Although that is demonstrably untrue, it probably points to other areas of (probably quite limited) effect. 

All this amounts to it being a brilliant adjunctive to almost any antimicrobial treatments.  After all, at its best it probably assists - to varying degrees - any alliopathic antimicrobial treatments.  At its worst it does no harm.  Hypocrates would rest in peace.
