Today I coiled my head for the first time. I spent some time on and off during the day thinking about what I wrote yesterday regarding the possible sources of headaches. Then I had to make a decision.
I chose to coil the back of my head for Lyme instead of starting on Babesia for several reasons.
Second, I’ve had these headaches everyday for the past I don’t know how many days. Since one of the doctors I saw told me she thought I have the infection in my head, I thought, I might as well test out her theory. I’ve heard of another Lyme combatant who ended up coiling her head and getting a big Herx that then helped reduce all her symptoms, not just the headaches.
Finally, this is easier to test than Babesia, which I am reluctant to start doing because I may have to make it a permanent addition to my coiling repertoire. This is a one-time test, whereas I’d have to start slowly to see what kind of reaction I get from short coiling sessions with Babesia, then build up till I see a reaction. I may still have to do that, but if I can reduce the load of Lyme bacteria in my skull first and reduce these headaches, all the better.
In addition to the head test, I’m having those sharp pains in my hips/upper outer thighs again. So I coiled there, too.
- Lyme disease
- abdomen, 3 minutes
- back of head, 1 minute
- left and right hips, 3 minutes each
- Candida, abdomen, 10 minutes
For the record, I did the coiling in two sessions. Candida was in the afternoon, Lyme in the evening. The coil gets very hot to hold, so I have to let it cool in between. Also, I wasn’t sure how I would react to coiling my head, so I wanted to save it for near bed time and not destroy my day.
N.B.: when coiling my head, I used ear plugs. No need to destroy my hearing.
Despite the ongoing family crisis, my mom got up and juiced greens for us this morning. Either she can tell it helps a lot (for herself as well as me), or she likes to juice. Dunno.
- homeopathic support
- juiced greens
- skin brushing
- infrared heat (1 hour, medium with some sweating)
I’m writing this as though it is a race against time. I feel the Herx coming on. When I finished coiling my head, I had a very mild pressure in my chest. As I continue typing, my head is hurting worse and worse and my vision is becoming somewhat altered.
Last night, despite going to bed late, I slept quite well for about 9 hours. No sweats. I woke up with a lot of muscular and joint pain. It diminished within an hour of waking, although I had to move in slow-motion for longer than that first hour. Eventually my body calmed down on the pain front and I was left with the same fatigue of recent days.
I was okay for a few hours in the early afternoon before my 4pm headache started. Along with the headache, my main complaints are: left shoulder joint pain, knee pain, earache (right ear), foot pain (fleeting- the pain only lasted 15 minutes), finger/knuckle pain, and mild queasiness in my stomach.
Now I’m starting to feel off balance. Time to lie down.
