Did curing Lyme (and co's if applicable) allow you to get back to 100%? Or did it all take a permanent toll on your body? I know that this will be different for everyone, I'm just looking for personal experiences.

I'm not cured... I'd say I've plateaued at about 85% right now. I still have set backs and generally lack stamina. I'll keep pushing on but I just wondered if people ever get back to 100%... I guess I just need some hope today... if there's any out there! wink If not, honesty will have to do! tongue

Dont give up hope......the members that have gotten well arnt always here to reply a on a daily basis since they are Back to living their lives fully again.

We do have a link to success stories on our new to Lyme thread I believe.

People do get back to 100 % and they post updates once in a while.

you could check out recent posts by Dee Ja Vu, Bigcat, and PeteZa, they have healed and there are others.

Take care and keep fighting, Jo

Well, I don't use the word "cured", as people get pretty upset about whether people are "cured" or not from this.

But for Kid#1, he is well and healthy for a year now! He is doing well - with no relapses.
But I can't honestly compare him to "before" and "after", as he's been sick for nearly his entire childhood (to a lesser degree the first several years) and I can't compare him to when he was "little" as he's grown now.

But it took a long time for those last few symptoms to go! (And they did!) I do believe some of the last symptoms is from damage from the abx, prior treatments, and pathogens for some people. So, it is more about healing at that point.
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but doing great now!
Kid#2: Still sick now despite being treated for years but doing better (not well yet).
Kid#3: Generally good but relapsing off/on.
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids)-not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue and yeast issues (heart/kidney issues resolved)
Treating with herbals now.

Sorry, I didn't see the replies to this! Thank you for your encouragement! I've read the success stories but it's been a while. I'm going to read them again.

Yeah... I tried to figure out another way to word that because I know that there's big feelings on either side about it... but I couldn't so I went with it but that's why I used the "consider yourselves" quote! Trying not to step on any toes... but at the same time get to the point of my question! Lol.

Thank you for your story. I'm working on healing... I'm being good about my diet now, taking colostrum, I'm still on Jernigan's protocol because I backed off of that at one point and I ~felt~ it, and I just ordered the life tree's parasite protocol because I suspect parasites. I just keep plugging along... but sometimes it can be discouraging! I appreciate the encouragement! <3
