Anyway, just a few more thoughts and a few answers to questions? I had Lyme and bartonella, after 4 w blotts got a positive1
I had Lyme untreated for at least one year!
It could have been much more?
I had a bite and rash, but the ducks, quack quack, said no lyme! 10 months later I crashed and burned quickly. I had some odd symptoms for a few years before that bite. Also. I work outside throughout Connecticut, even in Lyme on a few occasions. I have worked outside for 20+ years, in high grass often times, in shorts when warm and never did I use and bug spray.
I still will not use any, Deet is worse then people thing, it gets into your skin, and is toxic!
When I became ill it was fast a multisystemic.
I had like a flu, temp, sore throat, and sore muscles, headach from hell and a stiff neck. Hurt everywhere, sore and tired.
Then the neuro stuff took over. Vision loss, memory loss, tingling, jaw problems, the list is long, anyway the duck were sure I was fine. How could their blood work be wrong?
Doxy saved my butt, kicked the neuro stuff, but I still was not well.
I am sure to get over Lyme, after more then a few weeks in you, it takes a effort most MDs will never understand!
Diet, supplements, vitamins, herbs, attitude, and had all my amalgams(mercury fillings)removed and did a homeopathic detox for metals, and exercise are all needed. Without one link the Lyme will rule.
I have no way of knowing what helped the most, but I am sure everything worked together.
If people are interested I will list what I am supplementing with now. I have ols posts that show what I had been on a while ago, but I dont know the dates.
A few more words for now, diet is a very debatable subject! I am sure, sure as the light of day if you eliminate too many foods you will never be well. I dont call twickies food. But, I always ate a lot of fruit, any and all veggies, whole grain breads, and not too much protein. A extra high protein diet for a few wekks or months, maybe, for years, you will not get well.
Balance, variety, and moderation. I eat meat, not every day, but at least 3 or so times a week. I stay away from red meat. Try to eat whole foods as much as possible.
I quit coffee, I drink a little green tea every morning. I now drink a glass of red wine every day, did not during abx!
I work out every day. I now am able to lift weights, and do cardio for long periods of times. Last July I could hardly walk up stairs.
