Yes, my weight is up now and then some. As far as diagnosis goes, many years ago I had a text book symptom constellation with regard to Bartonella following a cat attack which involved a deep bite wound in the thigh as well as scratches deep enough to leave permanent scars. What followed a week later was fever, chills, fatigue, lymphadenopothy, etc. No treatment was given at the time and this was 20 years ago. More recently had testing done that indicates I continue to have a problem with Bartonella, but uncertain whether that problem is active or whether it is an immune issue triggered by that case of Bartonella long ago. The doc supported me regarding a non-prescript
ion herbal approach and in his opinion my response to those herbs indicates it is likely I have a current infection or have had an ongoing one for 2 decades. However, the doc also pointed out that these herbs are not pathogen specific, so I could be treating Bartonella and/or some other pathogen. I am using the Buhner protocol as well as Lymogen from Jernigan.
I have Mercury, Thallium, and Arsenic toxicity so who is to say which of the many problems I have are causing my multi system involved health issues and add on my severe MCS?
Yes, I take Vitamin D @ 6,000 iu per day. My current 25hydroxyvitaminD levels are at 70. I started taking it for osteoporosis (which is now oste
openia) , but gained other benefits as well including it's anti inflammatory benefits.
Like you, I am disgusted by the medical professions lack of interest in actually diagnosing anything these days. they just drug the symptoms and then drug some more for the side effects from the first set of drugs. Very frustrating. I have been ill my entire adult life, but keep trying and hope others do the same.

Gladio - is your weight up now? When were you actually diagnosed? It took years for me. That is the disgrace on the medical field for all this. Also, do you supplement vitamin D? I do each day, which is also supposed to help with adrenals.
elvin - That is great about aloe helping you so much. I have not been able to use it because, surprisingly, it is contradicted for kidney issues. Monolaurin and olive leaf really kick my butt when I go up, so your thought of ramping up so slow is same here. Just how some bodies are made or how problems react.
I started drinking virgin olive oil for loss of fat issues and to help with Candida. Actually started taking it before I knew about Candida, but that may explain why I felt odd after taking it. Never know what is coming next - good or not so good. Hopefully good.
