I think the success stories are doing something else. Sometimes they come back to post encouragement but most of the people on here daily are still struggling. Martha's Vinyard is cured. She went to Envita. That is the only person I know of. I am doing extremely well, but I am not cured. I had 9 months of abx and am now on a regimen of herbs which I take 4 times a day. I do not eat any sugar or red meat and never drank. My energy level is back and most of my symptoms have faded. Right now I just upped my dosage of herbs and I am herxing which is discouraging because I did not realize how many buggers were still in me. Today I rode two horses, mowed the yard, pulled weeds and went to town. When I was sickest I could not do anything at all.
I am much much better but I don't let my guard down as there are always little indications that the disease is still there even when I feel pretty normal. Often those things seem normal when they aren't. It seems normal for instance to have no memory, to get mirgrains, to have my shins hurt, to experience muscle spasms. I could dismiss it as age related, in fact most doctors would, but I know better now. So I have sadly come to accept that it may be a long time before I am well, if I ever am well.
