Hi everyone, I just wanted to express my gratitude to many of you here who helped me out 2 years ago when I was in dire straights with lyme.
I was lost, scared and totally freaked out.

Many of the people from then are no longer here, but some of you are.
To those who are new and are struggling, keep up the fight. Lyme disease can be "cured". I used the term cured lightly since I think one can still have after-effects from chronic lyme.
But when caught early, can be cured totally. If not caught early, the fight is more intense, but put faith in your body that is knows how to heal. Keep strong, keep detoxed and keep positive.

I followed all the great advice I got on this board and got well. Of all the groups I joined and all the sites I went to, the folks here were THE MOST informative and caring.
I was also dx with lupus, so the struggle was "double-deep" and I was confused about if lyme or lupus was my demon.
 
I healed with some abx and natural remedies.
 
This struggle lead me to want to learn more about the human body and heal and I am happy to say, I am 18 months into being a Naturopathic Practitioner and just graduated with my Natural Health Consultant degree last June. When I go into practice, my main focus will be on auto immune illness and lyme.

From the ashes does come good, so everyone who's feeling defeated just know, there is a purpose for this crazy journey you're on.
 
hugs
 
Keep smiling
 
Jen

Peacesoul,

What a great story! I love a happy ending. It encourages and inspires us all. I'm so happy to hear that natural remedies helped you. I am about to start a natural protocol because my body cannot tolerate antibiotics now. I'm hoping to balance everything out so that my immune system does the rest of the work.

I'm really glad you are better. Please keep us updated on your progress.

Always nice to hear a positive ending. I love the stories most when people turn their "problem" into a way to make a difference in others lives. I hope to someday be able to do the same!

Hi Peacesoul,
 
What a beautiful post!  I am so happy for you as I remember when you felt conflicted (is that a word?) and look at you now!  I thank you for supporting me whenever I talked about natural medicine and what is the word I always use?  Oh that's right, detoxing!  LOL! 
 
Funny, before I became sick with lyme I always associated "detox" with the 1970's and 80's when I detoxed from alcohol due to my "unwanted" addiction..  When I first heard that word on a lyme forum I thought what???  I know detox, I have done that before..  
 
They wrote about laying in a bathtub filled with warm water, salts and HP and I'm sitting behind my monitor saying to myself "now what does that have to do getting rid of lyme?"..  didn't make any sense to me at that time..  I thought those people were strange!  rolleyes    Until I really learned how important detoxing truly is and how it played a huge role in my getting better.. 
 
Anyway, congratulations on your work and dedication on becoming an NP!  What a beautiful road you chose, instead of being bitter or angry, you embraced this disease and turned it into a positive..   And that's what it's all about, people helping others..   
 
Keep in touch okay?

Hi Denise, Thaks for the kind words.
I got most of my inspiration from you when I first came here. I listened to you and felt like I had a chance to get well.
 
I hope others are as inspired by you as I was :-)
 
Thanks also to you JeninPa and Cajungirl.
 
Jen you will do the same. Embrace every bad day and learn every lesson.

Staying positive is really the strongest medicine we can have.

Denise,

I remember when my supplement lady first told me about foot detoxing. I thought she was crazy. There was no way that a foot detox could make such a difference. Ahh....but it did! I went to her house and tried it anyway...still very skeptical. Once I put my feet in and she turned the machine on, I could feel it pulling toxins out of my feet. I could feel it pulling all the way up where my liver is. It was bothering me back there too and the detox relieved it. I still can't believe it. It worked though and I'm now sold.

peacesoul,

You are awesome. I wish I'd had known you back then. You have a very positive attitude.

Denise has inspired many on this board. She is awesome too. We all love her detox instructions:):)

Thanks everyone
 
Sulma, I'm not on AF anymore but you can email me at
My BF is enjoying all your "stories" on EF as well by the way :-)
 
 
 
Bab, thanks very much:-)
 
I didn't really do any treatments per say, but a lot of life style changes and learning to balance my body in order to just give my body the strength to heal.
 
I upped my exercise, went back to work (which was hard but helped my mind), I cycled vit's and supplements. There is also an herb I took that I swear by that I feel gave me the best balance.

It's from a company called Robert et Fils. It's a French company here in Quebec where I live. I am not sure you can get it elsewhere.
It's called Formula 11.
It's basically oil or oregano, thyme, clove and cinnamon.
All natural anti bacterial and virals.
 
Really, I think the body can heal any illness when given the proper balance.
 
A great book that helped me also was a book called "Anatomy of the Spirit"

I also understood a lot about my body by taking a Human Anatomy and Physiology (had to take this for my certification)
I swear, I think everyone should have to take this course in high school, not just for any medical school.

I love Anatomy! I was supposed to start nursing school the end of last year but that's when I started getting real sick. I'm hoping that I can get myself better in the next year or so so that I can start school. Time is not on my side! I'm 39!

Peacesoul,
Thank you so much for sharing your story. I'm pretty new here, so I really need to hear from people who "beat" this. It helps to hear that all the money I'm spending on epsom salt and hydrogen peroxide really is doing some good. I've contemplated several times just not doing it anymore because it's all getting so expensive and I just keep wondering if it really is necessary. Congrats on your new direction in life - you will help many people!

THANK YOU SO MUCH for your post!! I'm sure a few on here remember me saying i wish those who had success stories would post! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I love hearing how people heal with the natural stuff ;) You just reminded me that i'm out of oil of oregano! I think that is a great blend- and excersizing is certainly something i need! I've heard it said you can't get well without it!
Do you mind if i email you for more info?

I've been doing some all natural things myself and would love to hear more of your story. :) I know exactly what you mean about being confused on your diagnosis- i've had the same problem, but i finally got all my test results back today and now i know without a doubt- it's stinky old lyme. I'm glad you put that part about your struggle with lupus or lyme- i know many feel the same way but it helps to hear those kinds of things.

Congrats on your healing and on putting it into great use!!! You should be very, very proud of yourself. :)
I refuse to stay sick! Period.

I never liked anatomy until I had to take the couse. Anatomy really shows us how the human body is connected to every other living force.
Maybe look into taking the course with a private tutor? It will cost more, but it's well worth it/
I'm 43 yrs old so I hear ya bout time, but seriously, there are 70 yrs old going back to university so never give up on yourself

Thank you and never give up on trying the therapies that will work for you. Detox baths really helped me when I was really sick. I still do them from time to time to just detox, but also the magnesium from the epson is really important so make sure you're taking a good mag supplement.
It does get expensive but I can say this, eating well and exercise doesn't have to cost a lot. Meditation and cognitive positive thoughts are also free :-)

The mind/body connection is key to ALL illness...
Hang in there :-)

HEY!!!!!!!!!!!!! How are you? it's been a while! Yes, send me an email, would love to hear from you.
I do recall my first times here and the start of my health journey. Man was I discouraged. I still get discouraged on some days, but I keep fighting.

I hope you've been doing well. Are you still training/working out?

Thank you as well, glad my story can help. When I first started this healing journey, I was terrified I was never going to function again. All I can say is take everything you read with a grain of salt. Healing is relative and personal and some people get locked in their illness and will tell the darkest stories.
People have been cured from fatal illnesses so stay focused on the good stories and stay away from the negative stories.
Lyme is no different than any other attack on the body and with the right tools, the body will/can conquer it.
I'm certainly open about how I am and have healed so any questions you have, I'll answer the best I can.

I am proud of myself, but still get very down and feel defeated on some days. It's a journey right?! I try to stay focusd.
Thank you so much for the kind words

Hi Jen, I am still trying to lift weights and workout, i do it very carefully not to overdue myself as i can crash, I lift very minimal weight and slowly increase, i workout others more then i do myself, i think the thing the gets me down the most is not having the strength to workout especially coming from a pro fitness competitor background, but im working towards that day will come again, hopefully sooner
 
i checked the days when i and you joined healingwell and funny thing is that we both joined the same day, you beat me by a few hrs,lol

This is so good to hear that within two years you went from ill to a healer! That helps to show there is plenty of time for what you really want to do with your life.

One thing I found was that while I was unable to do much of anything, which was about a month while on IV, and was searching for the answer to my healing, it gave me time to think about what I really wanted to be spending my time on, and also time to look inside and allow things to surface, so that in the future, I will be able to stay healthy and whole. I also found guided meditations that helped so much! And one of the most important things that I discovered was Denise's detox bath post! Thank you so much for that!

Thanks for sharing your knowledge and support with all of us!
