As some of you know, healing from chronic Lyme Disease is a tricky and long process.
It’s been seven years since I’ve been diagnosed with Lyme Disease. After the diagnose we found out I had multiple co-infections such as Bartonella, Babesia, Mycoplasma, in addition to mold, toxicity and intestinal parasites. I believe I was originally bit around 10-12 years old. Back then I fell into an unconscious state for 3-4 days with a sever hight fever. After I awoke things changed. Irritability, heat intolerance, irregular heart beats and anxiety were the obvious immediate symptoms, syncope came soon after.
In 2002 trauma-the loss of my baby brother- while pregnant with my third child triggered an immune response which kept me in a survival mode for few years from which I operated until a complete collapse in January 2014, due to the demands of my new job as a massage therapies- a job I LOVED! What once hid so well within my tissues resurfaced with a vengeance. The immune system collapsed and I along with it, living for two years on a thin thread, constantly balancing between life and…well, you know the darker side.
For those of you who can’t see the pictures of the three products I’ve posted on this blog and the link to the Amazon site where all three are sold, here are their names in order:
- Vitamineral Green by HealthForce SuperFoods
- Ion* Gut Health
- Transfer Factors by Source Naturals
1.While in the survival mode I came across a product that saved me, I believe. I’ve spoken about it in the past but I can’t say enough great things:) I feel better within minutes after I mix one tsp of this superfood complex in some water and drink it. Spirulina and chlorella bind to toxins and flushes them out of the system. It’s like having ten salads in one glass, plus amino acids, plus protein in a vegan, gluten-free, organic mix. Been taking this for 18+ years. My kids love it too- not the taste but the results. Tastes like grass.
2.The second product is a more recent development. I began taking it around 8 months or so ago. It’s a liquid, tastes like water, looks like water with a little dirt in it. For those fighting autoimmune diseases with sensitivities start slow, about 1/2 tsp once a day and work your way up to the recommended dose of 1 tsp, 3 times daily. Do not take in the evening as it will keep you awake. It gave me energy- more energy than I had, no it did not fix me completely- and I noticed my gluten intolerance reduced. From not being able to breath in flour particles to being able to have a bite of a gluten filled desert now and again it’s a major improvement for me! My tummy used to swell up within 5-10 minutes if I ate something with gluten. I looked 10 months pregnant within minutes and my ribs hurt quite a lot from the expanded pressure of the belly. My joins flared up and my brain fogged to a point that I looked like a walking zombie.
If I eat Thai food and there is gluten in the sauce I’m fine now, or fries which are known to be made in the same oil as other gluten rich deep fried goodies, I’m also fine. This guy in the picture below helped me with that.
3.The third product, a very recent development does help with energy and a total wellbeing. What impressed me this past week was the speedy recovery of a very large bruise left on my inner arm on January 7th after four attempts to insert an IV cannula (a small plastic tube inserted into a vein). It was gone by yesterday! That’s impressive, since it took me at least two weeks to fully recover. I’ve already subscribed to a monthly delivery of this product. One capsule on empty stomach, three times daily.
I must add that a good diet void of artificial ingredients and processed foods is a must in order to heal, hope is deeply important, keeping a mental image of what you’d like to do once you’re feeling better and visualizing yourself doing it is a saver, even if all you’re up to today is maybe a shower. Try to move your body or breath deeply in order to get those lymph nodes moving the toxins out of you.
I remember back in 2015, one of my goals was to make it to the mail box and check my own mail again. When I finally accomplished that I was so happy, but gave myself a new, more difficult goal, and just kept going. No one understands except those doing the suffering how utterly disheartening the relapses are after a victory. No one understands than those who walked the road how easy is to loose hope when all you feel is constant and debilitating pain, and one little victory can put you back in the bed of recovery for a whole week. I’ve been there more times than I like to think about, but keep on going! Fight for your life! No one will do a better job than yourself:)
Keep happy today! And God bless:)
