Most of you who have been following me know that I have been on the Buhner protocol since August 2012. Well this past April, I reached the recommended full dosage that Stephen Buhner recommends, and remained there for Stephen's recommended 4 months. In August, I decreased my dosage level, and just yesterday I completely stopped all Lyme Disease and coinfection treatment.
Ya know, as I look back and reflect on the time I've spent enduring Lyme Disease, from when the first symptoms surfaced, until now, it has been almost 4 years. The whole process, the doctors, the tests, the herxing, the darkest days, the medicine all seem like a blur. I can hardly recall the past 4 years with any great detail, but what I can recall with clarity is the nature of what I've been through.
I currently aim to write a blog post at least once a month. Those of you who have followed me from the start know that the rate at which I wrote was sometimes daily. Well why has the rate dropped so drastically? Well, to be blunt.. I'm healing.
The sun struggled to send light through the hazy lens of clouds in the east of the early morning hours. What light that did get through yielded a vast frozen tundra that touched a warm and clear blue sky in the west. The cold and crisp air blew the snow across the land that had yet to find a permanent resting place.
I can't believe it's been over 2 months since my last blog post. It's the longest I've gone without writing one; which could be a good thing!
On the 15th of December, which is in 9 days, I will have been on the Buhner protocol for exactly 4 months. Is it working? Yes.
Before I started the Buhner protocol, I was skeptical when I read a review on it in which a person claimed that in just a few weeks, many of their symptoms have dissipated. Another claim was that in just 6 months, all of their symptoms were gone! It just seemed too good to be true and that if it really was as great as it was being proclaimed, why didn't I know about it all along? Why was it not constantly plastered in my face? How come I've never seen vast numbers of raves about it on online forums? Because that's the stark reality of Lyme Disease.
