I don't know but parasites release heavy metals. I'm quite sure it's not me eating less that's slowing my metabolism down, quite the reverse. If I continued eating as much as I did before I would just gain weight. It's not unheard of for this to happen, in fact I could link probably a hundred threads on it.
I don't know what your symptoms are with lyme and co's. But, are you able to exercise (or do you suffer from fatigue?)
That would be something I'd consider...if I wasn't already doing so...and if I could manage it.
