I don't mind continuing this thread, we pull it to the top anyway with new comments. So much to respond to, thank you for all the suggestions!
I can't afford a LLMD, and my Internist has the typical attitude so as per my much earlier post, I am on my own. I get loads of information about
Lyme and co-infects and world wide mess of the medical side of it from a European friend through fb.
My main detox item was charcoal tabs that I had to discontinue taking because no matter how long I waited to take it, it prevented my blood pressure/congestive heart failure meds from working. Since stopping the charcaps, I've gotten back on tract there. I'm still looking for a proper brush (tampico)for skin brushing. I drink apple cider vinegar and water with lemon. I drink too much liquids/water and have been told I need to cut back as my kidneys can't keep up. I've been trying to chlll the shower water down just before I'm ready to get out of it, and I use shower scrunchies always to soap myself for further skin detox.
I'm not familiar with symptoms of yeast/fungal overgrowth or acetaldehyde toxicity.
I haven't had a sinus infection for some time. Though I commented yesterday I think this Spring pollen is making my COPD/shortness of breath worse.
Taking serious note of your mention of Japanese Knotweed. I've seen threads about
it and haven't read them yet.
also taking note of the Parsley (is the dried stuff I put in food prep the same?) and Pinella (new word for me). Thank you! I do not have a history of Migraines or even headaches. This is an entirely new problem for me. I attribute it to encysted Lyme bacteria in my brain because I developed disturbingly strong memory misfunction, speaking problems, and loss of brain to finger/hand connections. There is something else that I can't at the moment but a name to, I've gone blank.
It finally faded mid-afternoon. (today's headache). Incidentally I have to see a Neurologist in June as part of the deal I made with my Internist so that he would prescribe the Flagyl He was very much against doing so. Afraid of doing so he said. Even though he is the one that gave me the protocol sheet from the Mo. LLMD.
All of this head related stuff really got fired up during my 3 month abx hiatus. Wish THAT hadn't happened, because I had finally gotten to a point where I thought I was definitely going to live (lol). But between Winter weather, my Internist being off for several days every time I tried to get an appointment, plus my own totally down times where I just couldn't bring myself to go anywhere.
I've not ever taken Nystatin.
I need a reliable shopper. Most of the time if I can manage to pull myself together to drive the 20 miles to where I can buy what I need, I have several errands to catch up on and wear out before it's anywhere near half done.
But I don't have anyone that can do it but me.
