CHRONIC LYMES: Whole Leaf Stevia Extract Proved As Effective As 3 Antibiotics

CHRONIC LYMES: Whole leaf Stevia Extract Proved As Effective as 3 Antibiotics against all phases of LYMES and more effective in the dormant, biofilm stage

The culprit behind Lyme disease, which is a bacterial infection, is spirochete bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. The antibiotics proven to kill this form of bacteria are doxycycline and amoxicillin. However, Borrelia burgdorferi can be found in morphological forms, including spirochetes, spheroplast (or L-form), round bodies, and biofilms. When conditions are considered unfavourable for the bacteria, it morphs into the dormant round body, then hides in a biofilm form. When conditions are favourable, however, it can shift back to its spirochete form.
The stevia extract was found to work against even the most antibiotic-resistant of the bacteria, known as the biofilm. The individual antibiotics, on the other hand, actually increased the biofilm rather than eliminating it.

Effectiveness of Stevia A after a 7-day and 14-day subculture of antimicrobial treated B. burgdorferi

In the above-mentioned experiments, we have demonstrated the effectiveness of Stevia A on both spirochetes and the persisters of Borrelia and provided data that its significant effect is very comparable to the three-antibiotic combination reported previously []. To confirm the effectiveness of Stevia on the persisters, we performed a 7-day and 14-day subculture experiment in fresh BSK-H medium to observe if the persisters, if any, still left in the culture, could regrow in fresh medium assayed by the SYBR green I/PI and the direct counting methods.
