I'm still knocking on wood, but I got 5 pounds back!
During lyme, i could not take those bone broths (they made me puke).
Lately, I am able and I love the stuff.
I don't know what is solving my problem, that is about 10 year old.
Every 2 years, I lost about 1 pound, and could not get it back. When I could, I lost it back again....
My lyme dr put me on aminoacids, but I did not take them for long. They did not solve the problem.
Recently, I'm on energetically imprinted minerals, by Vital Force and other substances from them.
I wonder if that was not what made the shift...
I still have to see if my condition remains.
But gaining 5 pounds in the last 2 months is something that NEVER happened before, in the last 20 years, for sure.
during lyme, I suffered from food allergies, and that made food absorption much harder. Plus GI lyme symptoms, fatigue, etc. No way I could gain my weight back then.
But when lyme was gone, I still kept loosing weight, much slower, but surely.
I guess (just a guess) that mineral absorption is linked to nutrient absorption in general. When there is absorption problem (due to GI problems, for example), it is hard to solve the absorption deficiency.
I had an extra problem to that: my body rejected some important minerals (such as zinc), as though they were poisonous.
That zinc problem has been my main battle in the last 8 years, even after lyme was gone.
The only zinc I can absorb, so far, is Vital Force zinc, which is not 'real' zinc.
But I think that is helping me solve my muscle loss problem because I started on it about 2 months ago, exactly when I started gaining weight again!
Bb loves collagen. It does not like the blood, or what is found in the blood, but it loves collagen.
That is why it forces your immune system to react with inflammation, to break up tissues, so that Bb can eat up small pieces of collagen among other things.
Buhner explains a bit about that collagen-consumption in Healing Lyme.
If you guys have joint pain due to Bb, you have collagen loss in the joints.
