PurpleConeflower tincture that has been made carefully and kept refrigerated taken daily in a small amount (about 1/4 teaspoon or less than 30 drops) will counteract the spyrochete activity because it pushes the production of white blood cells which remove the active spyrochetes from the blood. The tincture must be taken once a day, and is best done at the same time of day as much as possible. It doesn't cure lyme but then neither do any other treatments according to everything I've heard so far. Even extreme antibiotic treatment over several weeks only succeed in clearing the invaders from the blood for a short time. The spyrochetes that are larvae inside the hard shelled cases are not touched by treatments and those adults which have burrowed inside the cells survive treatment and so the cure only lasts until the babies hatch and/or the adults inside cells leave the cells and continue migrating and setting up residence in other areas of the body.
The benefit of taking echinacea once a day is that it effectively counteracts the most unpleasant effects of this parasite invasion while not creating any other damages or side effects. I've been told by others that it doesn't matter what color the flower is (Augustifolia works well too - the yellow version - black eyed Susan - however, I've never tried using the other flowers for tincture so I cannot comment on the effects firsthand).

Black eyed Susan is a Rudbeckia; there is a yellow-flowering Echinacea (E. paradoxa); E. angustifolia is pink-flowered.
