Yesterday I rode my bike. As I've been feeling better, I find myself riding more often. The beautiful weather is nothing but enticing.
The bike ride itself served as a catalyst for a profound revelation and interesting discovery. While on route, I happened to pass plenty of vegetation. It just so happens though that I directed my attention towards it for a moment and was amazed to discover a familiar comrade. Teasel Root.
For those not familiar with Teasel Root, it is a biennial herb that is commonly used in Lyme Disease protocols to entice the bacteria to enter the blood stream, also known as the battlefield. This is precisely the reason I've incorporated Teasel Root into my protocol. It's the first time I've ever seen the herb in its prime and this could explain my sheer excitement.
The Teasel Root is just one half of this profound revelation. As I continued my bike ride, I encountered a grassy trail that lead into a forest. Leaving familiar territory for the unknown? Sure! It was all clear that in the words of Robert Frost, "I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference."
It's been about 7 months since I've been on my treatment protocol for Lyme Disease and I have to say it's still rough.
Undoubtedly, I have made great progress and am heading in the right direction. Symptoms are coming and going and overall, it's just a progressive state of healing. It just astounds me the length of time it takes to completely recover from this disease.
I think if someone asked me if I was given the opportunity to completely avoid contracting Lyme Disease in the first place, I'd say no. If I had the chance to completely eradicate this plague from my body, as impossible as it presents itself, I'd most likely decline the offer.
My refusal to accept such an offer should be a reflection of the confidence and faith I posses to beat this plaque on my own. I have accepted what I have encountered in this life. With everything experienced in life, whether it be positive or negative, one never stops learning to appreciate.
I've recently added Samento to my protocol and at the same time am completely backing off of the Oil of Oregano. This is just something I do every 2-3 months to keep the bacteria on their feet.
There is no doubt that this new combination of Cumanda and Samento is really stirring things up. I've heard people say this before and it's so true. If you're feeling good, simply up your dose or change your antibiotic and you'll see how sick you still are.
Jogging, push ups and sit ups have become a part of my daily routine again. The jogging is still a little difficult as it seems to exacerbate whatever the Samento has already messed with. I'm just trying to keep my mind in a good, healthy state. Being ill for so long and seeing the same things day after day after day really takes its toll on your mind. I'm trying to change things up to keep myself from losing my mind.
