So part of the reason I started this blog was so I'd be able to keep track of my treatment, changing protocols and symptoms, etc. etc. I was kind of doing this (to an extent) on my youtube videos but since i don't make them super consistently, it's hard to track progress that way. Hopefully i'll be able to update this blog at least once monthly with changes to my protocol and how i've been feeling etc.
Currently, I'm on a completely natural protocol. This was a personal choice, because i really do not feel that long term antibiotics would be beneficial in my particular case. I was sick for a very long time before I was diagnosed, and through my own research found that antibiotics worked better for people who started them within the first year or so of developing symptoms.
Another reason I've avoided them is the fact that a lot of my symptoms are GI related, and antibiotics are known to mess your your gut. I actually did spend a week on Biaxin and Amoxicillin last April, but all this did for me was send me to the ER with extreme symptoms and make me overall sicker. Some would argue this was just a herx, but even conventional LLMDs that are big on antibiotics tend to agree that herx reactions should NOT be so severe that you end up in the hospital. That is just too much stress on the body. And so, for me, it's 100% natural, at least for the time being.
My Current Protocol:
Chlorella (3 grams, 2x daily between meals)
Biopure CORE (1 cap daily, to be increased over time)

Biopure NEXUS (3 times per week before bed)
Activated Charcoal (3 times per week before bed)
Natural Progesterone (days 14-28 of cycle)

Nutramedix Burbur (used as needed for herx reactions)
Pekana Big 3 Detox Kit (to start in next couple of weeks)
I will be seeing my LLND again in 2 weeks so my protocol will likely change a bit then! I will also be starting treatments with a machine called the AN-DI energetic corrector in February. This is a machine my Dr. brought back from Germany last month. There are apparently only 5 doctors in North America offering treatments with it, but they have seen tons of success in Europe using it to treat things like Lyme, autoimmune diseases and cancers. So I'm looking forwards to beginning treatments!
