Psyllium husks

I was reading up on psyllium husks yesterday. I’ve used them for intense Herxes associated with antibiotics when the Herxes gave me diarrhea. I would take it at night. The next day, it would be better in the morning. Then the diarrhea would occur again at night. So I would take it again. Usually after 3 days, no more diarrhea. If the diarrhea took more than a day to come […]

The Triumvirate

I’ve been thinking over the past few days that I felt best (since I’ve been ill) when I was taking a cocktail of antibiotics that tackled all three of my major infections at the same time. So I’m full steam ahead on treating Babesia and Bartonella every other day, and Lyme each time the previous Herx dies down. Coiling Today is the second Bartonella-Babesia day. I’m not increasing either one […]

Today started very early (3:50 am) with the wonderful news that my sister delivered a healthy baby boy. I’ve been ecstatic all day. As I sleepily type this post, I can feel a touch of regret that I haven’t completely tackled Lyme et al. and am in the middle of treatment. I always imagined I would go be with my sister for the first month or so to help out. […]

Here’s something I never thought I’d share with anyone (except maybe my sister): Detoxing makes my sweat stink really badly. This isn’t an everyday phenomenon. It occurs when something is really on its way out. Today stank–speaking of my armpits. Usually this happens for a day or two and then disappears until I’m working out another Herx. If memory serves me, this happens at the end of a Herx, then […]

Lab Notebook

You might wonder why I write with such specificity what I coil, how I detox and what my body is up to. I thought I’d share my reasons tonight. First, this is my lab notebook. As I’ve mentioned before, I see this as an experiment. The first part of any experiment is making observations. That’s where the blog comes in. I write down what I do and what the relevant […]

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. First, the bump on the back of my head swelled up when I […]

My head is killing me. These headaches are really getting to me. They start at 3 or 4 pm and continue until I go to bed. This happened on Rocephin, too. They became a daily occurrence with greater severity once I stopped taking Malarone. It makes me wonder if my theory that they are caused by Babesia is true. Of course, one of my doctors was convinced that it was […]

Colonics for Lyme Patients

I had a colonic yesterday. It felt like the magic was gone. I think the actual colonic experience left something lacking, but I can feel something moving in it’s aftermath. In particular, I slept for 11 hours last night. Today I don’t want to move. I feel an irresistible desire for deep rest that isn’t quite the same as the overtired fatigue I usually deal with. Neurotoxins My doctor told […]

BioMat day two

I used the BioMat after I wrote last night. I tried the high heat setting and covered myself with a beach towel. I did that because the instructions said to cover oneself with a cotton sheet or blanket. Anyway, I sweated a little during the half hour I used it, but only on the parts of my body that were covered. Or more specifically, I sweated next to the mat […]
