This guy really new alot. I couldn't believe it. He even knew a few things about Lyme Disease. I was amazed. He suggested I get a protein powder with low carbs because of Lyme visease and me not being able to exercise right now and also suggested I take some green powdered vegetable supplements with it. He says that it will help with my energy and that I should notice a difference in a week. I find that hard to believe since I've basically tried just about everything for energy, but.......we will see. It is worth a shot.

Hope it helps you CG. I used to drink Goji berry juice, that is also a good one to take and tastes good also. Helps with fatigue and immunity.  D

I have two green powders Jarrow formulas yaeyama chlorella and nutrex spirulina pacifica vegetarian formula. I like to switch between them. They do help me when I take them.
Found out I had lyme in May of 2009. My husband and kids have tested positive too. I have been living with Lyme for over 8 years. My symptoms are Mini-Strokes/TIA's, Hashimoto's disease, Auto immune disease, and hypo-thyroid.
Started treatment with samento in june 2009. Side effects are swelling of my liver, lymph system and kidneys.
Anaphylactic reactions to beef. Allergies to dairy, gluten, and soy.
My family and I are enjoying a life without dairy for the last 19 years.  We have also removed sugar, gluten, beef and soy for the last 5 years.

I also like two green powders. The ones I use are Swanson GreenFoods Green Max Powder (only 5g of carb.), and Vibrant Health Field of Greens Version 1 (4g carb.) They're both really good and are full of nutrition. I mix them with almond milk or hemp milk (both unsweetened). Yum!

Yogamom - I will have to try the ones you mention.

I have Lyme; it doesn't have me.

Well, I mixed it up yesterday and it didn't taste good at all. It tasted like cardboard with banana on top, lol. My mom suggested milk powder but I haven't tried it yet. I need to get it tasting good because I spent $30.00 on the canister!

Rose- How have you been? It's nice to see you again. I may have to try the almond milk. Is it fattening? I'm trying to get my health straight and lose some weight too. I've already lost 4 pounds!
