A few weeks back I told the board I was going to do a raw food diet/detox and I would report back. Here I am. I was on doxy for 8 weeks and now minocycline for 16 weeks. Curious to understand and learn more about
nutritional outlets I did a raw food diet/detox for 1 week. While this exercise did not get rid of my bacterial infection (lyme), it was a positive experience. I did feel some herxing although it can be hard to determine the difference between a herx, a symptom, or a side effect. Basically, I ate a fruit smoothie every morning, a salad and vegetables for lunch, and another salad and veggies for dinner. Some interesting results were that I now continue to watch what I eat (eliminate sugars and flour). Also, I've lost about
20 pounds over the last 3-4 weeks. 31 year old male weighed 180 lbs. Now weigh 159 lbs. I would never have done something like this if it weren't for the motivation to fight lyme.
In conclusion, I realized that killing an infection of this nature can be aided by a nutritional overhaul. Any questions, feel free to hit me up..
