I’m sharing my Biofilm Protocol because it’s what helped me overcome the worst Lyme symptoms I had. And for me it’s essential to continue the “clean up” needed for Borrelia Burgdorferi and co-infections that can linger and keep triggering chronic illnesses like chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and POTs Syndrome.
Though I took this protocol for Lyme, it can be useful for other chronic inflammatory conditions as it helps strengthen the immune system by ridding the body of excess pathogens.
On my labs, Borrelia was no longer showing up as a present infection after months of treatment, but I still had raging yeast and viral infections that were keeping me sick. Unfortunately, both bacteria like Lyme and yeast can form biofilms, outer walls that protect them from being destroyed easily.
I also read clinical studies showing that Epstein Barr Virus and chronic HHV-6 may also form biofilms, and like bacteria and yeast, this protects the viruses from being killed off by the immune system or drugs.
I’m very sensitive, and can’t tolerate most fillers in medications and supplements. The pictures below are exactly what I use, free of fillers like dyes and silicon dioxide. Some you can find on Amazon (I included links below) and some need to be prescribed by a doctor.
I can’t promise this exact protocol will work for you, of course. Everyone is different. But my hope is in sharing what is helping me maybe there is a chance something here can help someone else. Interfase Plus, Japanese Knotweed and fluconozole have made a big difference in my health.
- Take Interfase Plus (includes chelator) on an empty stomach.
- Wait 30-60 minutes for enzymes and chelators to work.
- Take fluconozole (anti fungal) and/or Japanese Knotwood (antioxidant) or Berberine (herbal antibiotic). I recommend starting with one or two of these only to avoid overdoing it. Your doctor can review labs to see which may be more of a priority at the moment. You can also rotate them. Take with meals to avoid stomach irritation.
- Wait an hour.
- Take Welchol® (colesevelam HCI), a prescription binding agent. This drug works like charcoal but is way more effective and has less side effects for me than charcoal and other natural ones I’ve tried. This medicine isn’t absorbed. Taken on an empty stomach, it travels through the digestive tract, removing what the previous supplements destroyed. Wait four hours between taking Colesevelam and other medications or supplements.
Follow this Biofilm Protocol for 4-6 months.
Take Probiotics + Prebiotics
Be sure to include prebiotics and probiotics with this protocol. It’s best to take probiotics on an empty stomach, separate from fluconozole, Berberine and Japanese Knotweed.

Heal The Gut Lining
You may want to incorporate support for healing the mucosal lining as Lyme and co-infections can contribute/worsen inflammation and damage to the intestines, otherwise known as leaky gut. Click here to read how.
Shake It Out
Help your body flush these toxins from your lymphatic system and tissues with massages, myofascial therapy, a vibrating platform like mine, and/or gentle daily stretching/yoga.
