Hi, I have not been particularly active on the board but thought i should post our successful treatment for Lyme and Bartonella for my 14 year old daughter.
Symptoms included profound fatigue, excruciating nerve pain all over but particularly near her left rib area, brain fog (she was a straight A student and couldn't even read a book a one point), muscle and bone pain, headaches, gastrointestinal issues, pain on soles of feet ect ect
Antibiotics definitely helped take away the worst of the symptoms but as soon as she tried to "pulse" or stop the symptoms would come rushing back.
Friends of ours recommended a Doctor who "scans" you using a Rife machine then creates a custom program for you to follow using a True Rife machine. It is an expensive machine.
After 90 days our daughter, who was feeling great, was declared "clear" by the Doctor. At that point she went off all antibiotics and herbs except probiotics. That was 8 weeks ago and she is back to school, feeling normal, playing on the tennis team and skiing with tons of energy.
I am not sure if this would work for everyone but it did for her and we are very grateful to this doctor and I have gone from a skeptic to a believer in bioelectic medicine.
Pls email if you need more details
I am truly happy for you and your daughter. That is wonderful news for your family.
I've been to similar doctors who have really helped people, but unfortunately, these types of things generally fail us.
Also, I can completely relate to seeing your child being a good student ... to ... not even being able to read a book (and in our case, even hold a pencil or write anything). That's really tough to see how it can so negatively affect your child.
I'm truly happy for your family!
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but much better lately!
Kid#2: Very sick now despite being treated for years, very bad year
Kid#3: Doing great, minor relapse, but great again (ironically had least and shortest treatment)!
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids) - not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue, kidney, heart, and yeast issues
