Why should they be in the protocol? I will take a pill anytime over going to the hospital and getting an IV.

Goodness, I echo gwa here! However, the reason they aren't in the protocol is because it is aimed at ridding the body of a chronic infection in a thorough but gradual way, to lessen the chances of just giving up. This is where the pulses of flagyl come in. You could bash at the infection with IV abx, then think that you are cured. A few months later it comes back since all the parts of the lifecycle of the pathogen haven't been addressed.

Okay, it's a little vague, but I guess you mean, why aren't IV antibiotics on the protocol? :wink:

A pill can be controlled and another pill can be delayed or not taken at all. An IV will give you a certain amount of abx directly into your bloodstream and, if one should have a more difficult reaction to abx, there's no way to undo what you've put into your system. In other words, instead of doing things 'gently', as this protocol was designed for, you kill so MUCH bacteria at once, you deal with tremendous die-off reactions and you might harm yourself or at least set your treatment back, not to mention being horrifically uncomfortable.
