Hi guys. My expertise is in Lyme disease, heavy metal toxicity, alternative therapies, natural treatments as well as knowledge in mold poisoning and mental health. I am writing this in case anyone is in need of help with any of these subjects, I would be able to point you in the right direction and even possibly give you a list of doctors (I am not afflicted in any way). I know the frustration and overwhelm as well as how important it is to act quickly and would be happy to help anyone. My Story: I had Lyme Disease untreated and undiagnosed for 13-15 years before I was finally diagnosed in 2017 after I had been bitten by a tick on Mother’s Day a few weeks after I loss my 8-month pregnancy and held a funeral for him. 2017 was a tough year. I was told that I had a new infection as well as a more advanced, late stage infection going back many years. This made sense to me as I was always a hiker and the acute symptoms I experienced after the 2017 tick bite were identical to the symptoms I had 15 years earlier. So, I saw an Infectious Disease Dr who had me on antibiotics for 6 months, which only made my condition worse. I still tested positive for an active infection, which came back raging a week after I stopped treatment. I realized that I wasn’t getting the help I needed from doctors and I was on my own. For the next 2 years, I made it my full-time job to become an expert at Lyme so I could save myself. I read hundreds of studies, took notes, found protocols and studies that showed the effectiveness of certain treatments. I began taking these treatments at home and soon began to get better but still wanted a doctor to overlook. I finally found a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor who treated with natural protocols and/or antibiotics, and I chose the natural route. I felt more at peace having her tell me the treatments I was using was exactly what she recommends. Now that my insurance no longer covers her appointments, I am in a place where I know far beyond what i need to and altho I don’t have a degree, I know more about this subject than 99.999% of doctors. Lyme disease is easily treated if taken care of immediately, but if left untreated, this stealth pathogen is capable of things that amazes me.. as much as I despise it, it’s also pretty wild what it’s capable of doing to prevent its own demise. So yea.. any questions.. I’d be happy to help. Common Protocols: - Buhner - Zhang - Cowden - Byron White (my fav)

      I’ve had lyme and bartonella untreated for maybe 15 years but only got really bad in 2020, probably after being exposed to covid. in less than a year lost the ability to walk due to excruciating pain. last year finally went on antibiotics and no change in symptoms. I feel hopeless. I want to believe it’s not too late and I can be treated but even then I’ll probably never go back to the way I was. please tell me there’s hope.

      I was diagnosed with lyme disease when I was 8 years old. My mom also has lyme disease and was diagnosed a couple years before I was. I feel like t affects me frequently and I would love to be able to talk to you about your opinion and maybe get some guidance!

      I too found myself in the same boat, except it wasn’t me suffering..it was my 13 year old daughter. For years I have been trying to find what’s wrong with her while every single doctor I took her to would just tell me that everything is “normal” all her labs are fine. Telling me she just has depression and teen anxiety and constantly gaslighting me. I had enough and started really digging and doing all my own research. Ordering all her labs myself and trying to connect the dots the best I could. After some time I realized that so many of her symptoms lined up with Lyme disease. I decided to get her tested through IGENEX and 12 days later her results came back that she was positive. Finally I had answers. I was somewhat relieved but at the same time my mommy heart broke for her. This will be along road to recovery. I now know I cannot rely on doctors, they are clueless and look at me like I’m a crazy person if I dare mention chronic Lyme. I am currently treating her naturally with the Buhner protocal. Good luck to you. Best wishes ❤️
