Long Term Perspective

As I go through the list of herx symptoms in my head or on the blog, it reminds me of how bad I still feel on a regular basis. These feelings can get overwhelming, making me wonder if I will ever get through it all. The joint aches, belly problems, headaches and fatigue get me down. When I take stock of how bad things were when I started coiling, or […]

Lyme Waltz

Starting this past Friday, I’ve changed my coiling schedule. Day One is Lyme plus morning and evening Bartonella. Days Two and Three are full Bartonella protocol. Three steps, in succession, to the beat of the music. Lyme Coiling I decided I need to do Lyme every third day if I want to kill it fast and reduce the severity of each herx. I really learned my lesson over the past […]

A Question of Timing

I’ve been doing a lot more than I used to. It’s cutting into my coiling time. This includes today when I’ll be going on an overnight trip and missing a few coiling sessions.

The Power of Imagination

A lot of times, I think about how complicated yet simple antibiotics are. They are complicated in their effects on the human body and the ways that they kill bacteria. Yet they are a blunt, simple tool that can kill way more types of bacteria than the targeted infection. In cases where the infection is not known, this can be a blessing. A single antibiotic can kill any of a […]

Increasing Levels of Aggression

More and more, I’m convinced that the main infection that caused my leg problems and cognitive problems was Bartonella, not Lyme Disease. This is happening as I increase the amount I coil for Bartonella and get closer and closer to feeling like a healthy human being. The other thing I’m learning, or at least what I’ve concluded from my observations over the past few weeks, is that the primary area […]
