I went undiagnosed for 5 years getting sicker as the years went on. I went doctor hopping like people buy clothes searching for a diagnosis. I was told I had CFS, and some other things but when I went to research what I was told, I didn't buy it. I actually typed up a "diary" and did more research and diagnosed myself. Finally found a nurse who I asked to perform dark field microscopy and sure enough, we watched my lyme spirochetes on the monitor. Was sent to an ID doctor who sent my blood to IgeneX and I tested CDC positive for both lyme and ehrlichiosis.
The ID doctor prescribed 6 months of Doxy which I took praying I would get better but I didn't. I was done with the Doxy and experimented with all types of alternative medicine until someone mentioned Dr. Jernigan's book to me on a different forum, I bought the book (his 1st book, not new book), followed his "Healing at Home" protocol and got better. Dr. J's protocol took about 8 months, maybe 9 months total. And that was it!
I faithfully dry skin brush every day, use my portable Infrared Sauna almost every day, take detox baths at least 4 times a week, do foot baths almost every day. I do this because even though I do not have any lyme symptoms, I believe we live in a toxic world and I want to keep my immune system strong and rid my body of everyday toxins. I also take supplements such as Green Vibrance, Flax Seed Oil, Magnesium Calcium, Vitamin C and who knows what else? I have to look in my cabinet, LOL!
Hope that helps!
