I am currently on the antibiotic Ceftin, Zhang herbs (Coptis, HH and Circulation P) and also LDN (Low Dose Naltraxone). (I have Lyme Disease and MS.) I don't say this too loud, but I almost feel "normal." I have taken a gamut of different oral antibiotics (Doxy, Biaxin, Zithromax, Cedax, Minocycline, etc.), done the IV Rocephin, and tried the Cowden Protocol. I no longer need a daily afternoon nap, nor am I in bed by 8:30 every evening. I "go, go, go" the entire day and have the normal drive of a 45-year-old. And even more unbelievable--I bought a pair of high heels two days ago.
I don't know if I've finally found the combination that works for me, or if it is an accumulation of aggressively attacking these diseases over the past four years. My gut tells me it's a combination of both. As far as I know, I am on the Ceftin indefinitely. Otherwise, within 2-3 weeks of going off the antibiotic, I have a major flare. I don't know if this is a permanent or temporary improvement, but I will take it for whatever it is. I am anxious to see the results of my yearly brain MRI in August of this year.
I pray thanks to God multiple times EVERY DAY for letting me have this time of "normalcy," and I will never, ever take my health for granted again. Every day is a blessing, and I try to make the most of it. I am also grateful for my doctor who has stuck by me through thick and thin for the last four years and helped me get to where I'm at today (Dr. H. in Hyde Park, NY.)
I continue to pray for others with these illnesses and hope you find your own miracles. PLEASE DON'T GIVE UP!!!
