Lyme Disease Story (6)
Glad to be able to share my lyme story here on your web site. I really believe that I kicked Lyme’s butt. I can say that I am symptoms free for a few months now. Just as all the other Lyme stories are so complicated, no story is similar, or at least the symptoms are not identical in all cases, I am no different. I’ve managed to cure myself all alone without needing to see any doctor or follow an antibiotic treatment.
I was sick and tired of doctors anyway, and seeing an LLMD was way too expensive for my budget. In fact, my family doctor was the one that highly suspected that I might have Lyme Disease, she happened to be a bit passionate about Lyme and other bacterial infections. Bingo! She was the one to officially diagnose me with Lyme Disease. Dr. S told me that if I needed help, I could always see her at the office to prescribe me medications but I was doing just fine on my own protocol, so with all the information overload that I was reading on the Internet, I just went my own way and followed my own protocol.
I am going to get this straight to the point to make it easier for people that are reading my story to understand.
June/2008 A huge itchy rash appeared on my body from neck to my anus, there was no bull’s eye rash though, the rash looked sort of similar but the shape was different to a bull’s eye rash. (it was also painful)
Then it all started, terrible unexplained chills, general malaise, night sweats, extreme fatigue. I wasn’t aware what’s happening with me. All symptoms generated terrible anxiety (this all lasted for about 1 year)
July/2008 Arthritis onset. (literally came out of nowhere). The rheumatologist said it’s rheumatoid arthritis with some deformation here and there. Goodness me, I had all the typical symptoms that most Lyme patients have such as severe joint pain that came and suddenly stopped, spine pain, headaches, and a cracking and creaking neck. The pain was everywhere, mostly in my arms and legs. I’ve also had dozens of others symptoms like bugs crawling under my skin, in my ears. Sore throat, sore teeth and sore eyes were daily issues and I just started to hate every aspect of this condition.
August/08 I was fed up with all the symptoms so I started my own natural protocol.
My natural protocol -
- Samento (went up fast to 25 drops a day and had the herxheimer reaction a lot so I had to cut back to 10 – 15)
- Emu oil internally
- Oil of Oregano P73 (best natural antibiotic)
- Olive Leaf Extract
- Organic Red Wine
- Alpha-Lipoic Acid
- Amethyst Biomat
- High-Bush cranberry juice (homemade is better)
- Curcumin and Garlic
November/2008 I can say that I am finally cured. For now I am still taking Samento and don’t think I will stop taking it for about one year and nor will I stop the red wine, cranberry juice or my biomat. I think Samento helped me most with my symptoms, I started having a lot less pain in my muscles and joints, basically it took my arthritis away in 5 weeks flat.
I firmly believe that abx is USELESS against this disease, especially when we’re talking about a chronic stage of Lyme Disease, but that is just my opinion. I’ve done an experiment and dropped the red wine completely, and suddenly some of the symptoms returned, so I have been back on it now for about 5 months and I feel excellent. I have no liver issues whatsoever from drinking red wine and I drink almost 400ml every single day.
Since the wine was all organic with no metabisulphites a hangover was non existent.Bear in mind I was not near as sick as a lot of other members by reading their posts but my protocol worked as long as you catch the disease soon enough and I’ve read successful stories where people with chronic stages of Lyme Disease, have followed my exact protocol. I am sure now Lyme is in remission and most likely in cyst form.
I wish everyone a fast recovery and many thanks to the Lyme.WS community.
