me right now-- so, I have been on the new herbal protocol for about
5 days, and back on 3 abx for 5 days also.
I felt pretty bad for a few days and have not gone out really for the last week or more- I was feeling bad before I got back on all the things.
As of just today my head is starting to clear up a bit which is great. I had been having a lot of the off balance wooshy feeling in my head that is awful.
I am now up to three cups of lyme defense tea a day plus 2 tbspoons of the chornic tonic, a few drops of teasel, and three abx.
One weird thing is my knee(s) started hurting just this week.
I had Zero joint pain my hwole lyme time ( luckily) so I don't know if the knee issues now are a herx, a worsening of symptoms, or something else ( such as my body just being generally run down from the abx).
It was just my left knee which felt kind of injured- and now my right knee is kind of achy too ( but not swelling) so I don't know, ugh.
the antibiotics are absoultuely making my nerves tingle and it is getting worse, now on the right side some too. I hate that about
I now feel that the abx are just a stop gap measure to get the bacteria down but that when I go off them I could relapse even if I am on them a long time.
I have been reading every success story I can read and lots of people relapse even after long term abx, but then go on- to the magic mysterious cure which they never quite spell out clearly enough for me.
I have two apppointments this week- one is with a Chinese medicine practicioner who cured his and his wifes own lyme with I think herbs and acupuncture.
The other is with a lady who cured her severe lyme with I think herbs and not sure what else.
I am hoping to get some inspiration from them.
Then it will just be about
trying the herbals. I hope to stop the abx soon, every day I take them just to try to get my mental sanity back but my body feels much worse on them.
When I was off them I had ear issues anxiety and fatigue, all of which is the lyme. But I didn't feel that sick otherwise. NOw I feel achy ( last few days) and a little gross but I feel that the ears fatigue and anxiety are improving.
I wonder if the new knee pain thing is a herx?
I am enjoying the herbals, I find them very nourishing. I have no idea if they will work. I ahvent been doing the houttuynia much yet as I am still getting my body used to the other herbs.
But those intense mental hexes I had when I first took the teas have stopped- I still don't feel great, but that aspect of things is mellowing some.
I haven't been out of the house ( I mean I go out for a walk every day on my rd and go out in my yard but not out to town) in over a week because my mental state was bad last week ( probably the herx). I am planning to go out tomorrow- I felt a shift today in clarity in my head.
