Hi All - so, half way through the treatments and wanted to give an update:
The clinic staff and doctor are great. Very kind and supportive. Someone asked if I thought it was strange that Dr. Kleef didn't know a lot about Lyme or Coinfx; no - i don't think it's strange. His clinic specializes in cancer & oncology, and Lyme patients are fewer.
The treatments themselves have been quite challenging. Getting up to 39-40C (103-104F) is very challenging on the body. It requires a lot of patience and physical endurance. Fortunately, my symptoms improved a lot over the summer leading up to the treatment so I am stronger. POST-TREATMENT is sometimes just as hard or harder - often will have a splitting headache (in spite of super-hydrating before, during, after), and then have residual effects of the fever for hours including chills, sweats, and generally feeling weak & crappy. By the next morning I've generally felt better. Doc says it is from the detox. Could be herxing too, hard to tell.
It is way too early to tell if this treatment is "working". I do have the intuitive feeling that it is strengthening my immune system, and helping my body to detox superbly. Is it killing the infections, reducing pathogen load? Don't know. I think the benefit of this treatment will be seen more long-term: 3 months, 6 months, 1 year hence. I intend to post updates periodically.
A few other notes on the nuts and bolts: I am receiving IV treatment DURING the hyperthermia sessions as follows: high dose Vit. C 7.5gm; Mg 400mg; followed by ALA 600mg.
Two times a week I am receiving Ozone treatments of blood, as 25 mcg / mL of blood. We do 150-200 mL of blood at a time.
During the treatments I am also taking the following detox, cyst, & anti-microbial support (spaced out over the 4-5 hours):
- Electrolyte capsules throughout
- GSE (500mg) and 3-4 Interphase Plus (biofilm disrupter)
- Cyrptolepsis & CSA blend anti-Babesia tinctures (Buhner)
- D-Lenoite (Olive Leaf extract) w/Milk Thistle
- Super Artemisinin
- S-Acetyl Glutathione
- Adrenal Support (Dr. Ron's Adrenal)
- Reishi mushroom
- "Power Adapt" Adaptogenic herb blend
How is now with you Pain Three??
Are you still here?
