Well, the increased Babesia coiling yesterday worked. I’m not nearly as tired today, at least I’m not in bed all day. I think that once I can do my whole body, I’ll have to start doing it twice a day. At least that’s what I’ve heard.
It goes like this, when there is lots of Babesia in the body, it replicates as needed. As the load gets smaller, it replicates faster to maintain a sufficient level to survive. So when I get it down past a certain point, the infection goes into a reproductive phase. Then I need to start killing off more of them to maintain relatively few symptoms.
It bothers me to have to deal with 4 infections (that I know of). I’m always juggling which one needs attention to prevent me from crashing. I’m still spending time thinking about getting more aggressive with Lyme, but honestly, I’m scared of the Herxes, especially after the heart episode last week.
In other news, I saw my acupuncturist today. She’s working on my heart. She put needles in places I’ve never had needles before (like the palm of my hand). Some hurt. Some didn’t. I could feel my chest constrict at one point, then loosen up over the next ten minutes. She said my kidney pulses are better since last time she saw me (which was pre-Renavive). Maybe that is working to tonify my kidneys as well as hopefully getting rid of the stone.
For once, I didn’t want to pass out for a two hour nap after the treatment. I’m a little sleepy, but not falling on my face exhausted.

Very mild night sweat last night. I was too groggy to get up to pee and fell asleep slumped forward. I woke up again with my leg asleep. Ouch! In the morning I woke up with severe hand pain and needed a half hour before I could use them. My feet were hurting, too.
I still have the rash on my chest. It’s itching a lot. I’m tired but not incredibly so. I’m hungrier than usual (that’s kinda nice).
My hands, knuckles, wrists, all in the joints, hurt a lot today. My shoulders are bothering me. I’ve had some temporary stabbing pains in my back. In the night, I’ve had a headache and eye pain, more so in my left eye.
Still, not too bad.
