Hi to L J,
I got on the natural track because the docs weren't able to help me with a body rash, a swelling under my left eye, and facial paralysis about
5 years ago. I started the natural because I found out that many body rashes are virally based and was told my "Bell's palsy" was caused by a virus. Since docs don't have a whole lot to fight viruses with, I decided to build up my immune system and see wha happened. Thr rash went away and the rest seemed to be getting better. Nobody even mentioned LD. At least my symptoms were highly visible so I didn't get laughed at
Last year a doc prescribed doxy. He didn't directly tell me what it was for because LD is outside his area of practice. The doxy helped some so I knew my problem wasn't viral. Once the doxy started to irritate my stomach, I went back to natural since it was working before.
Since I found out about
lyme and have been reading about
everyone's shared experiences, I' ve been trying different things and keeping the one's that work. I've changed my household cleaners to nontoxic products to lower the load on my detox system. And have recently started drinking a tea that I believe has antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. We'll see how that goes.
So fat I've been blessed in that things seem to be working. I'm not currently under a doc's supervision. And don't plan to be as long as I keep gradually getting better. That seems to be about
as good a test as any.
Are you using abx, natural or both?
