Orbitingaround, thank you for the reply, what did your treatment plan look like?
The short version:
- no antibiotics (I had c diff colitis twice in the past and didn't want to risk it)
- 8 months of Buhner herbs: JK Plus, Houttuynia, CSA. I worked up to 60 drops a day. I still take some herbs, like a maintenance dose of 1-5 drops.
- my LLMD put me on 1.5mg LDN, which I have been on pretty much the entire time. I believe it saved my life, because it's also used to treat ptsd.
Everyone's path to healing is different, I firmly believe that. There are a ton of other supportive, so-called "weird" things that I have done this entire time that have helped, but which other people will mock. Everything from tuning forks and reiki, TRE, EFT, vagus nerve exercises, meditation, Solfeggio frequencies, therapy for c-ptsd, an infrared light I bought off amazon, Paleo diet, celery in my green smoothies, Cistus tea, colloidal silver, to quitting a job I hated and leaving a city I never felt safe in. It all matters, it all adds up.
Note that I do not consider myself in remission yet, but probably 90% there.OrbitingAround—
I also have C Diff in my past, and have been dealing with gut issues. I just found out Lyme can cause “Bells Palsy of the Gut” and I think this is at the root of things for me.
Do you feel Lyme impacted your gut health? For me, it’s the most major thing. If so, are you having relief with GI issues?
