    It is a very interesting article about using antibiotics. Dr Mirkin explains the differences between Minocycline and Doxycycline at the end.
    I don’t know why but I cannot copy and paste the link, so please google:

    I tried to contact him also in 2013 when running across his website, unfortunately he responded he had retired, but was nice enough to give me some advice on treatment. It is a shame, not really any good doctors in the Tri-State region on the AP list, the good ones have retired.

    Hi John,

    I have a terrific integrative LLMD here in CT who is aware of RBF and Brown’s protocols and uses them for rheumatic patients, as well as offers additional abx in an MSIDS approach, assists with diet, detox, chelation, hormones…pretty much the full gamut. Young, innovative and open-minded, as long as the benefits of any treatment outweigh any potential risks for a particular patient. There are a couple others in CT, but mostly LLMDs.
