Hi everyone - thought I'd let you know that the last round of rifampin and now the Biopure really seems to have moved me up to 95% better from a year ago. I can't credit only those things, as I pulsed antibiox on and off and did Buhner's protocol for about
6 months also.
I'm also convinced diet plays a huge role for me. I feel much better when I avoid grains, cow dairy and nightshades. I don't drink much so alcohol hasn't been an issue for me. Last weekend when I was at a birthday party I gave in and ate the top of a couple slices of pizza. By the time I got home I had a headache, and that was followed by a day and a half of fatigue. By monday, I was back to my current "normal".
I also started on biotin, folate and tumeric, and I'm continuing Vits D3 and C. Probiotic and Great Lakes collegen too. Epsom baths, essential oils and dry brushing are part of my life now.
I do still get flares, mainly around the full moon, and sometimes I'll feel a twitch or tic here or there. But now that I'm 2/3 ramped up on biopure, my muscle pain is almost gone. Even the feet pain which has been my worse symptom. It's still there, as is the lower back pain, but they get better every day.
It's too early to say I'm "cured for now," but I feel good about
this current path. Should mention I "only" have borreala and bart.
