I had the non-productive cough, extreme fatigue, low-grade fever, aches and pains, the most severe pain I had were in my legs (felt like tiny knives inside my legs). I also lost the ability to walk for several months.
I first tried Doxy but that made me sick to my stomach so I stopped that on my own. I then tried colloidal silver (didn't feel any better). Then I tried Nutramedix Samento and another product by Nutramedix. Still no difference.
I knew a group of people who were having great results from Dr. Jernigan's protocol so I said to myself what do I have to lose? So I bought Dr. David Jernigan's book called "Beating Lyme" and followed his protocol from his book. I felt amazing right away which shocked me! To this day I don't completely understand (I understand about
75%) why his botanicals worked for me but hey, I don't look a gift horse in the mouth.
Also, I learned that detoxing was just as important as taking the botanicals. Thus I got in the habit of dry skin brushing, taking detox baths, coffee enemas (yes I know, yuck!), doing internal cleanses such as liver/gallbladder cleanse, etc.
Like PeteZa I have rules for myself such as eating as healthy as I can and being very aware of my stress levels. I changed my life around at one point just to lower my stress which worked out great!
Hope this helps,
12 years well ~ used Dr. Jernigan's protocol from his book about
Biological Medicine (used Borrelogen, Microbojen and Neuro-Antitox).
I still detox even though healed and drink Green Vibrance. I come back to help others for others helped me when I was sick. Pay it forward!
