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.
When it comes to healing your body, you're on your own. No person is going to hand you on a silver platter a method for eradicating your Lyme Disease. You have to be intelligent enough to put yourself on the course that is right for you. Other wise your body will continue to deteriorate, the Lyme Disease will become more oppressive, and eventually you may die from its effects. That's the cold, hard truth of Lyme Disease and the perspective of Lyme Disease by society. It's natural selection. The weak die off.
So back to my progress report. Yes, so it's been almost 4 months since I've been on the Buhner protocol. Can I claim that most of my symptoms have dissipated like the person in the review of Buhner's book? Sure! Do I believe that in 6 months all of my symptoms will be completely gone? No. But do I believe that in roughly 8-12 months my symptoms will be completely gone? It seems plausible but there is no way I could ever know now in the present. I can only make a prediction based on the current information of my progress that I have available to me immediately.
The information that I'd use to make such a prediction would obviously be my symptoms. How are my symptoms? They're fading, slowly but surely. My ability to recall words in a conversation and memory is noticeably better! A lot of my joint pain has ceased. So they're are obvious changes in my symptoms that I notice but what am I doing now that I wasn't performing 4 months ago? Well I'm working more, I've recently decided I would collaborate on music with a band member once more, and I've even started exercising again.
Don't be fooled though! I am approaching all of these reintroductions very cautiously and slowly. I understand my body is still ailing and healing and that a large portion of my energy must be distributed towards healing as well.

I bought Richie Sambora's solo album recently and I found this song to be one worth sharing. For those who don't know, Richie Sambora is the guitarist for Bon Jovi.
