I spend time in person and online with people who have serious, ongoing illnesses who I greatly admire. From their attitudes and experiences, and my own struggles, a few survival techniques have become evident. Putting on a fight face, becoming a researcher, focusing on one moment at a time, and having a strong faith life seem to be some commonalities. I invite any readers to comment with their coping techniques and means of gaining ground. The more we connect and share, the less isolated and scared we will feel. There is power in information and connecting.
Below is a list of the combinations of pharmaceuticals and herbals I have taken, continue to take, or researched. I am not suggesting a cure. Chronic Lyme is just that. But I’ve found ways to reduce the infections and symptoms to the point I have good days consistently.
Scroll through to find the infections you are dealing with (I cover babesia, bartonella, Lyme, and others).
I AM NOT A DOCTOR. I RESEARCH FOR FUN. I KEEP TRACK OF MEDICAL JOURNALS AND ADVANCEMENTS TO STAY ORGANIZED AND IN CHARGE OF MY HEALTH. DO NOT USE MY GUIDELINES AS THE GOSPEL. I just want to provide some guidance for my Lymie friends who are stuck and do not know what to try next. I suggest reading the works of Dr. Horowitz, Dr. Burrascano, Dr. Cameron, and Stephen Buhner.
Text in purple are the treatments I had the most success with.
