Great to see some of the same names here.

It has been a very long time since I've posted here. I've had an extremely stressful past ten months or so and with this came letting go of my protocol, letting sugar back into my life, gluten, dropped supplements. I had a brother die from cancer in December and I intervened to get him off of a "curative" plan for something non-curable. One of my best friends died from brain cancer in December another sister battling breast cancer, another sibling in a psychiatric facility that was experiencing all sorts of horrible stuff (she asked for support and advocacy).

Doing what I can given the very limited $ I have.

Added Cats Claw, then Japanese Knotweed, beginning the process of dietary adjustment and detox routines.

So, lesson learned, if one does have a "probable" lyme scenario, and one gets back to a 90% reduction in symptoms, if challenges come your way, it may be a HUGE step backwards health wise.

Symptoms - to help me get out of denial and begin to pay attention - the first step in getting things back in order.

migrating headaches
sleep issues
pain flares
jaw pain
ear aches
eye pain
GI tract issues
stomach pain
at times feels like my head is swollen
neck pain
hip pain
fatigue - overwhelming need to lie down
body temperature, lowered again

In other dimensions, life is good, really good. Growing, learning.

Time to go back to the beginning. I remember somebody here asking the illness, what do you have to teach me?

Oey... grieving and health issue... thank goodness that I live somewhere where I can get into mother nature on weekends.

I am so sorry for the losses of your loved ones and the grief and stress you're experiencing. I'm also sorry about the relapse, but it's clear you are ready to deal and have already started - so Yeah!!! for that 😊

In addition to the herbs you already started, I would recommend something for bart and babs: CSA formula plus houttuynia or IHA Formula plus sida acuta. If you just want a single herb, take the sida acuta as it treats both.

Eleuthero could help with fatigue.

If you're gonna get tests done, get checked for viruses and the pneumonias to see if you're dealing with those.

Buhner has full protocols for all of it, so you might want to refer to his books for those. You really need cytokine remodulators and supportive herbs, too. Not just the antimicrobials.

Oh crap! So sorry for what you've been going through, multifacetedme!

That is a lot of emotional turmoil.

You've got a plan....and you will kick it's arse once again!!!

Maybe this time....stay on the herbals longer? (You mentioned 90% - how long at 90% did you stay on the herbs?)

migrating headaches
sleep issues

These symptoms sound familiar.
I usually get my migrating ice pick lightning bolt headaches in the temple area and back of the head. They only last a couple of seconds but they do occur on a daily basis.
Could be Lyme, could be bartonella or something else. Who knows really.

The sleep issues are the worst symptom ever! Even worse than the headaches themselves.
