Dear Sparkie, and anyone else using homeopathic remedies to cure these diseases:
 
Help! cry
 
I am still searching for a Dr who can help.  Looks like it's going to be a long and lonely search now that I have run out of cash, credit, and recommended Drs.  I will have to start calling random ID and/or internal med Drs covered by my ins in hopes of finding someone who can help.  I'm hoping that if I take the angle that I need 2nd opinions on my viruses and other infections that I will find someone who will take me, and who might at least consider this Lyme business.  My biggest problem could possibly be co-infections: Only babesia has shown on my lab work, but some good folks here say I seem to have many bartonella symptoms.  And who knows what others I may have? I literally live amongst ticks!
 
This is overwhelming. I need to get well. I am saying this because I know there are too many of you out there who feel the same.
 
I am nowhere as physically sick as most of you (and so I pray often for everyone).  But too often I come to the point I feel I can't take it anymore.  I guess my symptoms are more neuro ( however, it was probably Lyme or another TBI that has destroyed vertebrae in my neck and caused nearly a lifetime of back pain). But I can handle these when not suffering the depression, confusion, and exhaustion.  These are what will take me down, when I go.
 
Questions to those of you doing herbals and other homeopathics:
 
1) Do you truly believe that we can cure these diseases w/ homeopathics? 
 
2) I understand and believe that positive thinking and prayer can heal -- however, how do we do this when we are so mentally ill?
 
3) Do you honestly believe that spirochetes and parasites can be eradicated this way? (ie; by our souls and our minds)
 
4) How in the world do you determine what infections you have?
 
5) There are so many remedies and herbals out there, how in the world do you determine what you might need and for what? (ie; co-infections) This part, alone, is overwhelming!
 
7) I know that many of you use abx along w/ herbals and homeopathics.  Since my abx will run out before I find a Dr, I am most interested in homeopathic cures, more than aids.
 
*** 6) Can you please share your own successful remedy with us? Can you please tell us how you have arrived at your remedy and suggestions for what we might try?  Could you please share dosage amounts, etc?
 
I know these questions have been asked and some have been answered before.  But since Sparkie brought this up on another post, I think we could use some refreshers on this.
 
Thank you to anyone and everyone who can help us.  Becky

In answer to one of my own questions above: Of course, I believe that prayer, faith, and will can heal almost everything. I guess my question would be more like, do you believe that the average (nuerotic) person might have this power?

Hey Lyme,

I think we all have the power to heal our bodies but I think it's harder to concentrate on that when we are sick and in pain all the time. Being depressed on top of that doesn't help either. We need a positive envionment as well.

My religious beliefs run strong, but I also believe that as physical beings, we need physical things to help these poor bodies out. I also believe that no amount of medicine will help me if I don't have faith in my higher power.

Also, I believe that the more ill a person is, the more systems & organs are involved. These systems & organs need supportive therapy (I just started on thyroid meds). Since it takes all of the systems & organs functioning to create health, it makes sense that either pharmaceuticals &/or herbal/homeopathic tx is needed - at least to attain better health.

That's about all I have been able to wrap what's left of my brain around lately - though I keep trying to increase my understanding.

PLEASE remember - this is all just my own sweet, maybe even deluded, opinion!!!!!

CajunGrl, you sure hit that nail on the head!

And Trav, seems I recall that you are also without (hopefully temporarily) a LLMD and abx.

Would you please share your homeopathic aids/cures with us, including your opinion on those dosages?

I'm new here so i don't know how "valuable" my input is, but i am specifically seeking out natural therapy because of the following reasons- and maybe this will encourage you about doing this-
1. many natural herbs and antibiotics address MULTIPLE concerns and organisms- traditional meds usually only address 1 thing and very often create other problems when addressing that 1 thing- which leads to needing other antibiotics or meds to treat new symptoms.
2. a natural protcol will easily address your whole body-including your emotional and spiritual wellbeing and also important YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM- check out the Hansa Clinic- Dr. Jernigan and see what you think or i bet there are other people on here who can tell you about their experience w/natural treatments- I am looking for any advice i can get too!
3. traditional treatment doesn't always address the power of the mind- Your mind IS powerful -it is powerful enough to do things you didn't think it could and if you want to get well you must believe that- i know it is hard i am preaching to myself right now. lol

Anyway, i'm certainly not saying antibiotics don't work- it is something i have to consider when thinking of what to do- but i think it might be worth your time to research into natural treatments. Anyone with success stories please back me up! I'd love to hear from you!! :)

Thank you, Finding. Regardless of how 'new' you are here, your input is very valuable. I believe that everyone's input is valuable. Everyone's body and disease are different, and will thus repond differently. So all of us can use all the help and advice we can get.

Are you on the Jernigan protocol?

I totally agree w/ what you said about our mind. Actually, it's the Lyme mind I don't have any faith in...... ha ha? It is often too difficult to quiet my mind enough to say a prayer. But I guess I won't give up trying.

Hi +lyme (sorry I get your name wrong from time to time!!)

You are right that I'm without a LLMD or tx for the time being. I haven't used ANY herbal/homeo tx, as there is NO way I can trust this ole Lymie brain to figure out on my own what to take, how much to take, or even what would be the best choice fro me to take!!!

With that being said, I was under tx for 1 yr, back in '99, and was making decent improvements - then one day, trying to make my LLMD appt (1,00 miles round-trip) I started having small seizures!!! Scared the holy bejeebers out of me!!!!!

Since that time, I have NO desire to repeat that - as so I scared myself out of trying to treat myself. Although it has spurred me on to read & re-read as much about the "Lyme Syndrome" as I can possibly do.

Information is power!! And I feel that in order for me to reach anything near a healthier life - I HAVE TO understand as much as possible of what any doc might be doing for me.

I also do a lot of lurking on this & other Lyme sites!!!

Hey Trav, you can call me anything for short-- it doesn't matter. I realized when it was too late that +Lyme is entirely too much trouble to type. And as you see, I shorten others' names at times, myself. Just hope they'll tell me if that bothers them in any way.

So what do you do? Do you have a plan?

And could you (and/or anyone else) please tell me what a seizure is like? I understand that this would scare the holy bejeebers out of anybody!

I do not believe I have experienced anything that might indicate I would ever have a seizure (probably no one did?). But for a few of those days a little while back, when I was griping so much about the depression and anxiety, as my body got tenser and stiffer, I wondered if it would get bad enough to seize.

But I have no idea what a seizure is like.

Don't forget to tell us what you are doing now besides the research, since you aren't even treating yourself. ( I understand -- I lose DAYS on here researching) Do you have any fear that you will get worse? Do you just stay the same?
 
btw, I have noted this weekend that I'm having very subtle finger twitches.  They are so subtle that it's possible that I've had them before and not paid attention.  I think those of us w/ Lyme tend to zero in on every little thing.  I sure hope this is not the beginning of something bigger, tho!
