I used Lyme-N for around 75 days.
I believe I've had Lyme for around 3 years. My symptoms have been primarily joint pain, muscle pain, insomnia and fatigue. I kept getting worse and worse and around February I was no longer able to work. I could barely get around by limping and it hurt do anything. I finally figured out that I had Lyme (after being told repeatedly that this just happens sometimes as you get older) at the end of March.
I took Doxy for 30 days. I started to improve, but everything still hurt (neck, back, shoulders, knees, muscles everywhere) and I still couldn't work or do much at all.
Based on Dr. recommendations, I cut out many foods from my diet and ate mostly meat and veggies and still am careful with my diet today, but hope to introduce foods as time goes on.
Around May 1st, I started Lyme-N. My throat felt raw the first couple of days and the Lyme N in my lungs caused me to cough a little. Other than that and some herxing, the Lyme-N was pretty easy to handle. Much better than the Doxy.
I gradually improved on the Lyme-N, with ups and downs. Towards the end of the treatment period (60 days, I think), I suddenly started to feel a bit worse, so my Dr. suggested I stay on it for another couple of weeks. There was enough left over to do that.
Right around the time I finished Lyme-N, I had improved enough that I was able to start working full time again. I had started part time around a month previously and worked my way back to full time.
Throughout this time I took Epsom Salt baths daily and took Methyl Folate. These helped me tremendously with herxing.
After a couple of days of being off Lyme-N, my eye became infected. I believe this was the Lyme as well. I also started feeling a little worse in other ways.
I started taking the Vital Plan herb protocol after a few days off of Lyme-N. I believe this has helped me quite a lot. Although my eye infection has stayed with me for the past month and half or so, it has gotten a lot better and some days it seems gone. I feel like I've continued to improve in all areas.
Today, I still have pain in my shoulder and in my knee. I still have a long way to go, but overall, I'm dramatically better than when I started Lyme-N and I'm continuing to improve. I feel like I can lead an almost normal life now.
Did the Lyme-N do what it's supposed to? I don't know. I know that I improved quite a lot while on Lyme-N. My Dr. told me that the Lyme-N did it's job and now I may continue cycle through symptoms for a while. I wasn't feeling like I was doing as well as my Dr. described so I started the Vital Plan Restore Kit. I think that Vital Plan might take me the rest of the way to full health.
I submitted my follow up saliva sample but I haven't gotten the results back yet. I'm not placing very much weight on this test. I think it's probably great for letting you know if you have spirochetes, but it can only tell you if they are in your saliva. They hide throughout your body so to me, a negative result is not conclusive. That would be better than a positive test, but that about it.
My insomnia is gone. My fatigue is gone. Many of my pains are gone. I feel that I'm healing. My mood is dramatically better and I can live my life again!
My own discovery of Lyme allowed me to realize that my mother has had Lyme for possibly over 20 years and that my son has had Lyme for 5 years. My mother is going right to Vital Plan because Lyme-N is too expensive. She is just starting now so I have no results to share. My son is on antibiotics because his Dr. think this is best for him.
I've read several books and searched the web quite a lot during this time. I found "Unlocking Lyme" by Dr. Rawls at Vital Plan to be probably the best information that I've read. I'm in no way affiliated with Vital Plan. I'm only sharing this information because it was helpful to me and I hope that my experiences might help others.
