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.
In the beginning, which was no more than a year and a half ago, Lyme Disease was all I knew and performed. The bacteria drained all energy from my body, I became estranged from friends and family, and school and work were no longer feasible; that has changed.
As of recently, within the past month, there has been a noticeable difference in my physiology. The difference or change is subtle, but grand enough for me to notice. What I am going through and currently experiencing is nearly ineffable, but I will try my best to describe it for not only others, but myself for future reference.
Herxing has become nearly nonexistent. In fact, I can't even remember the last day I was constrained to a bed because of a herx. My brain fog (i.e., memory) is still impacted, but not as greatly as it was before. I find myself being able to recall words easier, and even reading has become a daily hobby of mine once again. Just the ability to articulate thought effectively with words has required less of a conscious effort on my part.
My physical body is progressing at a faster rate than my mentality. On a side note, if I can recall, the brain is the last part of the body to heal from Lyme. No longer do I have muscle weakness. Fatigue is reasonable. I'm not bursting with energy, but never have I been compelled or forced to take a nap during the day in quite sometime. In fact, since starting my part time job, I've yet to call out.
What I am currently experiencing is unprecedented. I've noticed symptoms dissipating before, but never like this. The change is so profound, that it's apparent to me a transition of power has commenced. The bacteria that has for so long taken command of my biological functions, has since been reduced in numbers greatly, and is dwindling in its strength. I feel the bacteria itself has lost the high ground. Soon enough, I've be implementing a full dosage, and with my greatest intent, strike my opponent with great force, and once and for all, put an end to this reign of terror.
I just want to take this opportunity to make sure that everyone is addressing biofilms and cyst forms of the bacteria. Remember that only specific types of antibiotics and herbs can penetrate and address cysts forms of the bacteria. As far as biofilms go, make sure you're looking into biofilm dissolvers such as serrapeptase, nattokinasse, or lumbrokinase.
The bacteria is untouchable and unrecognizable by the immune system and most antibiotics and herbs when in cyst form or in a biofilm. Remember that other coinfections can even hide in a biofilm alongside the Lyme bacteria.
Also, if you find that your treatment protocol isn't working, make sure you're addressing possible coinfections that you may not be aware of. Look for common symptoms of Babesia (shortness of breath, night sweats), Bartonella (foot and calf muscle pain, marks on the body that appear to look like stretch marks), and any of the other common coinfections that may have possibly accompanied your Lyme Disease.
Remember that test results should never be taken in their entirety. A person can continuously yield negative test results for Lyme and its coinfection, and still have full blown Chronic Lyme Disease. Use your symptoms, rule out all other possible major causes, and most importantly, go with your instincts!
With the precarious nature of diagnosing Lyme Disease, and even the nonacceptance among physicians of its existence, let no physicians opinion be your perceived or desired truth without rational inquiry.
