Step 5- Neurological Restoration

As I’m writing this series, I realize just how complicated this disease is, and why it’s so hard to treat.

“Beyound collagen, microbes- Lyme and Co-infections- commonly scavenge specialized fats in the brain and nervous system. Myelin, the fat that surrounds and insulates nerves, is a common target for Borrelia and Mycoplasma (which I was diagnosed with along with a few other co-infections). Loss of myelin and other brain fats cause a range of neurological symptoms, from tingling to burning to brain fog and depression (all symptoms I do and have experienced).*

Eggs, are a good source of lecithin and choline, both essential brain nutrients. Omega-3 fatty acids and minerals including zinc, an essential nutrient for brain function.*

Monolaurin, a fatty substance derived from coconut, is known for supressing microbes, including Borrelia.* I took this supplement for one year.

Also certain mushrooms, including lion’s mane and chaga are known for protecting and restoring the brain function. Reichi and Cordyceps mushrooms provide neuro-protective properties.* I take reichi powder in tea and it helps tremendously. Other herbs include ashwagandha and bacopa.

Lavender, rosemary and lemon balm are great essential oils to use.

I had neurotherapy injections done along the spine and in over the adrenal glands for 6 weeks, to help re-boot the parasympathetic response ( rest and digest, during which the body heals ).

The brain fog I experienced was severe and could no longer remember every day words, I skipped the order of words in a sentence, repeated one word over and over and could not remember what it meant, I had a hard time comprehending what others were telling me, if I read I could not comprehend anything and after reading one sentence ten times I gave up, etc. These are just few examples of brain fog. This however diminished almost entirely, right after I pulled my mercury fillings out.

Mold presence in the system, as well as toxins created a bomb gone wild, along with Lyme and its co-infections. Those need to be removed one at the time as not to overwhelm an already fragile body.

Anti-mold diet: avoid sugar, dried fruits, peanuts and make sure you drink plenty of water-about 10 cups a day-. Glutathione and Phosphatidychlorine Iv’s were helping bring the mold out of the body and support the nervous system. Chlorella pills help remove toxins out by binding on the toxic molecule and flushing it out through urine or sweat. Bentonite clay, activated charcoal (I can’t do this one) and infrared sauna.

Meditation and deep breathing helps quite a bit as well as yoga exercises.

Hope this info helps you and I’l be moving on to our next step:)

God Bless:)

*Quotes from the book Unlocking Lyme by William Rawls, MD

Lyme disease and non-epileptic seizures.

Danielle explains the seizures better than I can.

I got diagnosed with Neurological Lyme Disease plus co-infections back in 2014-2015 and that’s how I get attacked after a nasty flue/cold, or any elevated or prolonged stress in my life. I also have a hard time in public (especially after a relapse) around lots of people, places such as Costco, church, any restaurant, or grocery stores, festivals, or just crowds, like in airports. I used to love being in large crowds of people, their energy and happiness only increased mine, but now I hate being in crowds of people. When I relapse or have flare ups, talking to one person, looking them in the eye, fills me up with anxiety. It’s as if I can feel their pain or distress and I absorb it in my own body.

Thank God for Instacart app. They deliver the groceries you buy on line to your door for a small fee, or free if you buy a year membership. Amazon also delivers from Whole Foods if you live in Seattle, which we do, and these modern services are a complete blessing for people like me.

Nutramedix Burbur-Pinella tincture or warm lemon water helps me through these seizures, it calm the neurological system down, by cleaning all the toxins away and calming the whole wiring down. The Burbur helps fast while the lemon water is just a nice detox habit to have.

All Lyme warriors keep your spirits up today and God Bless:)

ME/CFS or Conversion Disorder speech on Ted Talk

ME or Myalgic Encephalopathy, also known as CFS or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Conversion Disorder. 

It’s surprising how about 99% of her symptoms I dealt with and some which remain still deal with. The good news is that I feel soooo much better, despite the mild relapse the past month where I couldn’t touch my chin to my chest due to stiffness and intense pain in the back of my neck and fatigue unusually higher than usual. I’m back on Lyme 2 a tincture that helps calm down the symptoms. I still have a very stiff back neck that crunches all the time I touch but I am so grateful for life in general that I move along:) I have a part-time job now; two hours two times a week cleaning a house, and I’m so happy and proud of myself to be a working woman again. I have deep anxiety before I have to leave, but I take Neurocalm which helps me and this week I’ve just begun drinking Sarsaparilla organic tea which gives me quite a bit of energy and calms my central nervous system as well. Amazon has a brand I use called Buddha Teas, but there are other brands out there to choose from.

For all fellow Lyme Disease, ME, CFS, Conversion Disorder, Cancer and other Autoimmune Issues too many to name, I honestly pray for your complete health or at least bearable symptoms. The cure is out there, we haven’t found it yet. Meanwhile, keep fighting, keep researching and do whatever it takes to heal yourself because if we are to wait for western medicine to do it for us we’d all be dead by now. Maybe one day they’ll catch up as well because they’re seriously behind in autoimmune disease knowledge.

Merry Christmas to everyone reading this blog and a Happy New Year full of an unexpected improvement in your lives.

God Bless:)
