TICK BITE TREATMENT
Stephen H. Buhner has recommended this herb to boost immune functioning on a regular basis, though recently suggested in a social media post that Andrographis tincture should be on hand to treat a tick bite. He recommends mixing it with a poultice medium (like green clay) to apply after the tick is removed to immediately deliver antimicrobial protection beginning at the site, followed by 30 drops Andrograpis tincture taken internally 3 x per day, combined with Cat's Claw tincture (to avoid a side effect rash).
