Upheaval

Sunday, April 10, 2011

The day started with a little mistake. Instead of putting flax seed oil in my breakfast shake, I added sesame seeds. Oops. Guess I’m not done with the neurological part of the Lyme Herx.

Tomorrow I’m heading out of town to see my sister (yay!) and her husband (yay!) and to meet my new nephew (super yay!).

Since I’m going to be away for a few days, I’m putting things on hold. I won’t be coiling Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and I’ll skip most of my detox activities. I will be posting to the blog and monitoring my symptoms during this brief period of less treatment.

In preparation, I’ve coiled a little extra. I did a co-infection treatment today, and I’ll do another one before I leave tomorrow. It’s a compromise because I think I’m ready to increase the time on Bartonella, but I don’t want to start a big new Herx right before I travel. I’m trying to minimize my symptoms for a few days, even if I lose ground by missing Wednesday’s treatment.

I’m doing one more thing a bit differently. I won’t be coiling for Candida for 3 days. It’s the perfect time to increase the amount of a particular probiotic I use to eat the excess Candida in my intestines. It’s called 3 LAC. Some other day, I’ll explain my thinking about using a special probiotic while coiling for Candida.

Finally, since I have to get up so early tomorrow morning, I’m skipping out on the castor oil pack tonight (because it’s so late as I finish what I need to do tonight) as well as the kombucha. I think the most recent brand I purchased has some caffeine in it so I don’t want to take it before bed.

Coiling

As mentioned, I’m doing the co-infections 3 days in a row.

  • Bartonella, abdomen, 4 minutes 15 seconds
  • Babesia, chest, 1 minute
  • Candida, abdomen, 10 minutes

Detox

I had a double dose of juiced greens. Now I find them yummy and refreshing. My mom made them for me yesterday but I never picked them up. What was I thinking?

I finished the second of the homeopathic treatments I’m taking. This one is called Polypathik. Its purpose was to do a spleen cleanse. Hopefully my spleen is in good shape for the next several months. I’m still taking some treatments for my liver and for my kidneys.

  • homeopathic support
  • juiced greens
  • skin brushing
  • BioMat (2 hours sleeping on level 2)

Body

I woke up with a back ache and some pain in my limbs. I was pretty groggy as I wandered around the apartment waking myself up. Once I was awake, I was clear-headed but clumsy. My hands and knees have been bothering me all day.

I coiled earlier in the day than usual. Since then, I’ve had a headache and a lot of floaters in my vision. I was very sensitive to light today. I’ve had an earache in both ears.

Tonight, a pain in my neck going down into my back and up into the base of my skull has been added to the mix. I’ve also had the sensation that there’s a lump in my throat.

Off to bed. Good things in store tomorrow.
