My lyme disease natural protocol journey ..
by Alexandru Matei
I just found about Lyme Disease last year in December and I would never thought that I could be afflicted by this seemingly crippling illness that is very much like syphilis. Ever since last year in December I have started researching, studying and investigating about Lyme Disease (I didn’t get a diagnose right away because I could not afford the high costs of all the laboratory tests – Western Blot and RN-AT (which is a combination of Blots). To confirm the presence of the infection I have also ordered a live blood analysis that clearly showed 3 borrelia strings in my blood and bartonella infected cells.
In June 2012 I finally got a clinical diagnose – Late Strage Lyme Disease and Bartonellosis.
After reading dozens of scientific articles, forums, blogs on Lyme Disease I was frustrated to see so many people that fail with antibiotics and I decided to start off with a natural protocol. I have switched between GSE (grapefruit seed extract), Cat’s Claw, Banderol and Raw Garlic. I started this protocol in May this year and I am still having herxheimer reactions.
The first time I took my first dose of Cat’s Claw and Grapefruit seed extract I had a severe herxheimer reaction that brought me right to the emergency room. Everyone is different and experiences different herxheimer reactions at different intensities. During a “herx” I usually get severe dizziness, loss of balance increases, shooting pain through my body, back pain, bone pain, brain fog, joint pain and Cluster Headaches.
So far none of my symptoms have improved (but the herxes have diminished in intensity and there are days when I don’t herx – I’m continuing this protocol for another 3 months.
