Stevia shown to kill off Borellia (Lyme) biofilms - as effective as multiple antibiotics

Eva Sapi study finds stevia effective to eliminate biofilms, spirochetes and persisters. Note that in addition to other methods, they actually used darkfield microcroscopy to count the numbers of remaining biofilms after treatment with the different methods.
"In this study, we evaluated the effectiveness of whole leaf Stevia extract against B. burgdorferi spirochetes, persisters, and biofilm forms in vitro. The susceptibility of the different forms was evaluated by various quantitative techniques in addition to different microscopy methods. The effectiveness of Stevia was compared to doxycycline, cefoperazone, daptomycin, and their combinations. Our results demonstrated that Stevia had significant effect in eliminating B. burgdorferi spirochetes and persisters. " 
Different manufacturers of stevia extract were also compared. The one that had the strongest effect is NutraMedix. 
The therapeutic dose is 7 drops per day. Start with 3 and work up slowly.
It can be purchased $9.07 (1 oz) from Nature's Trust (free shipping)
