3 days ago I hit the 9 month mark for my Lyme Disease protocol. As I should probably be feeling proud of myself for religiously adhering to it for so long, I feel otherwise. I'm growing impatient.
Believe me when I tell you that I have come to terms with Lyme Disease. I understand that I had to sacrifice all of the treasures of my life in order to preserve and salvage the one I hold most dear. My own life. It's just after being unwillingly obedient for such an extended duration, one naturally grows impatient.
I've made it clear that if I knew the exact date or at least the month of when I would achieve remission, I could guarantee that this fight would be in the bag but there is a problem. I don't know the date I'll achieve remission nor could I ever before that day comes. It's still not and will never be a reason to lose hope or doubt as we continue to endure.
From what I have gathered from the people whom I've talked with who reached the day we all yearn for, it takes roughly a year to a year and a half to reach remission form Lyme Disease. Obviously this is based off of a protocol that works and there are many. Some will require more time and some have done it in less but one must consider the many different factors that affect each of us differently such as coinfections, diet, environment, stress level, optimism, etc.
Also if you're on a protocol for Lyme Disease and it's not working, get yourself on a new one! Just because your protocol hasn't been working doesn't mean you need to lose faith or believe remission is out of your reach. It does mean that you just haven't found the right protocol yet. What works for one surely doesn't work for all.
The human body is a remarkable piece of engineering and if given the appropriate tools and circumstances, it can heal itself from just about anything. Why? Well because that is what it was designed to do. Whether you're consciously aware of it or not, your body is constantly performing functions in order to maintain life. So why not give it a helping hand?
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.
