This week, for the first time, I tried doing the Lyme treatment in two days. It’s only the beginning of the season, so the bacteria are still slowly waking up. I don’t think I had the full herx from it, but I certainly felt something this morning.
Backing up, for several months I coiled for Lyme a little at a time, a few seconds or minutes a day, a few days a month. Then in the fall, I bumped it up so I was covering my whole body. I was pretty scared of what the herxes would be like. They were hard. I kept increasing until, over the course of a week, I would cover every inch of my body with the coil for 3 minutes.
Towards the end, I was doubling up the days, getting the full coiling protocol done in 3 days instead of 5.
Yesterday was the big leap. I did half of the coiling on Monday, specifically the lower half of my body (legs and hips). Yesterday, I did my abdomen, chest, back and head. I was nervous about doing my spine and head and abdomen all at once. I was afraid I’d be completely wiped out today.
Don’t try this as a starting point. I would never have dared start with my whole body. Herxes can be of an unpredictable level. It mattered that I did a little at a time then built up my knowledge of how my body reacted. In the meantime, I was reducing the bacterial load so that a big coiling session did not turn into hospital level reaction.
So what happened? Thus far, I slept well but short last night. I went to bed with a headache. I woke up with diarrhea, but still had an appetite. My headache came back in a slightly different form and has been haunting me all day. I was tired on and off, but was able to push myself to do laundry. I was also restless, wanting to move and shift and find things to do. A nap probably would have been a good idea, but I never settled down.
I’m afraid I haven’t hit the worst part yet. Sometimes it takes 2-3 days for me to feel the full effect. We’ll see…
If the two day coiling protocol doesn’t produce a killer herx, I’ll start increasing my Bartonella treatments in a few days.
