Coiling for Lyme

Trying to cure one case of Lyme Disease

One step forward…

Well, I spent most of last night in the Urgent Care area of the local Emergency Room taking antibiotics for a kidney infection. (The Levaquin should reduce Bartonella symptoms for a little while. In fact, no hand or foot pain when I woke up this morning.) The kidney stone I mentioned yesterday hasn’t moved at all in the past two weeks (neither has the smaller one I didn’t bother to […]

Is this the kidney stone?

I’ve been having a hard time today. I woke up after 9.5 hours sleeping (yeah for sleep!) with severe pain in my hands and feet. When I finally convinced myself to stand up, it felt like standing on needles that were poking through the bottoms of my feet.

When I finally fell asleep, I woke up over and over with disturbing dreams. (I lost my only pair of shoes and searched until I woke up.)  I finally got in a few hours between 6 and 9:30am. […]

Building the Coil Machine

In mid-December, I ordered a coil machine. I purchased an amplifier (sometimes they’re pretty cheap on eBay). Unfortunately, most stores were on back order until the middle to end of January. I called every online store until I found the last one available for sale in the continental United States. Both parts arrived in December. Last night, the coil and the capacitor box arrived. I spent this morning hooking up […]
