I have been doing a lot of juicing to support my immune system and I think it is helping. I am doing the best that I have since starting treatment- reliable mood, better energy, less sweats and even less joint pain.

I am still using IV Claforan with Penicillin injections once per week, this is covering Lyme and BLO (Bartonella Like Organisms). In addition I am taking Azithromycin Monday through Friday to treat L-forms and Flagyl on weekends to break up cysts.

I juice wheat grass every morning 1-2 oz and then during the day I juice a green drink made up of kale, cucumber, lime, sprouts, and whatever organic greens I feel like (Whole foods will give you free carrot and beet greens if you tell them you have a rabbit and call ahead).

I also still go to Chinatown and see the local acupuncturist MD (who takes insurance) and for Tui Na, (Chinese massage, costs only $40). I am always looking for affordable ways to treat this illness to pass on to you guys.

How great that you are doing this.

I tried being a "Wheat Grass Farmer". Lord I had the prettiest wheat grass around. Could not wait to cut and juice it.

It said best taken on empty stomach, and 1 oz to start. So my great hubby got up bright and early one morning, did the harvest and juiced for me.

When I got up, there it was in a little shot glass, all grean and pretty.

UGGHHH. I even chased it down with OJ after as suggested.

I made it 3 days. By the 4th day my stomach just rolled at the smell of wheat grass. I could no longer handle it.

I really wanted to do it. There are so many benefits...I just could not :(

Oh too bad- it is recommended that you start with very little and cut it with an apple. Don't give up just do very little or do some other vegie juices as we need this sort of nutrition badly.

hi all,

my husband and i have been taking apple cider vinegar for over 6 years (organic w/the mother) it is a natural antibiotic that creates an alkalyine environment in the body...guess what lyme does not like that type of an environment...llmd said because we were doing this plus generally healthy eathing habits prior to all the steroids it probably helped keep the lyme at bay...if you google health benefits of apple cider vinegar you'll be surprised what you find...we do a tablespoon in a full glass of water 2x a day...and best of all it's very inexpensive...think we might start bathing in is it helps somebody else.

I take my apple cider vinegar straight--a nice tablespoonful whenever I think of it. I put some from time to time in my dog's water as well.
