I just got my test results back and I AM LYME FREE!!!!! After contracting Lyme 20 years ago and finally being diagnosed in May 2015, I am Lyme and Lyme co-infection free after starting treatment 14 months ago. I’ve also beaten Candida, herpes zoster, and am parasite free. My pH is 7 which is optimal. It was not easy. It was not cheap. But it was worth it. I’m proof positive that it can be done.
***I am NOT a salesman of any kind but I would be amiss if I didn’t at least mention some specific products that I researched and found were better than others. I’ll lead you down MY journey but I don’t want to do anything that’s against the rules of this site. Forgive me if I do because it will only be in error.***
I will edit this protocol as necessary. Remember this is MY protocol and what I did to combat Lyme. I chose the homeopathic route and is NOT to be touted as better than any other method.
Prior to being diagnosed, I lost 2 well-paying jobs due to inability to focus and perform my job well. I went to many doctors and was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, TMJ, Tinnitus, depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder just to name a few. I was hospitalized and put on numerous medications. I could barely walk, talk or drive. I was on the verge of divorce and lost my 2nd daughter in a tragic accident right after my diagnosis. I was a hot mess.
May 2015 – Diagnosed with Lyme, Lyme co-infections, Candida, Herpes Zoster, Epstein Barr, Low Thyroid, Low Adrenals and many others (will list more as necessary and as I remember) by my doctor (PM me for her name) using C.E.D.S.A. (Computerized ElectroDermal Stress Analysis) Vital program. She can conduct tests by mail as well. She and her husband are both Lyme survivors. This test determined that I was actually suffering from Lyme but also my immune system was shot. I began treatment advice but refused to let go of my prescription meds. They were my lifeline.
My doc put me on a solid health immune building program using Standard Enzyme products. They aren’t cheap but the good stuff never is. My doc gave me many nutritional supplements and also homeopathic and herbal remedies for various things. I admit I wasn’t very consistent about taking everything as I should’ve been. At least in the beginning. Later (now) is a different story.
My doctor also introduced me to the Rife. She lives 1-1/2 hours away and I could barely drive a mile so I decided it was in my best interest to buy a Rife. There are many systems out there but after much research I chose the TrueRife system. There are excellent YouTube videos that show what it does as well as on their website. It’s an incredible invention for so many illnesses. It was originally created for cancer and still can be used for that as well as many other illnesses. The Rife has an overnight bulb and I ran the overnight programs every night. Every morning I did the Rife footbaths that corresponded to the previous night’s program. We kept it varied to always keep the bacteria and viruses guessing. The Rife was so effective at killing everything that all the prescriptions drugs I was on (and had been for years) started to become too strong. My psychiatrist suggested that I lower my dosage and I began to feel better. Eventually I started to feel weird again so I lowered my dosage again and again until I took my last pill on Dec 31, 2015. I am so proud to be prescription drug free and no longer need a psychiatrist.
Without any change to my diet, except going gluten-free, (I was just too sick to mess with it) I was 75% Lyme-free by March 2016.
The Rife also makes colloidal silver which I “imprinted” with the illnesses I had. By August 2016 I was Herpes Zoster free. I have so many pictures of how nasty it attacked me. I even had shingles down my throat! That same August I was 95% Lyme free, 97% Lyme co-infection free and 75% parasite free. Candida was still running rampant and I had yet to start on Epstein Barr.
I went home and was in bed for weeks running Rife programs to make sure I got that little bit of Lyme left out of my body. I also started to heavily address my diet. I went on a 3 day fast to reset my system (aka make myself appreciate vegetables!) and pretty much removed anything that was sugar and/or would turn into sugar. Gave up coffee for good (I do other things with it now). Quit dairy. I even gave up my beloved wine. Anyone who knows me knows how hard that was because I’d like to fancy that I could be a wine critic someday. *sigh* But I know this is temporary and will soon adopt the 80/20 plan where I eat healthy 80% of the time instead of the reverse like before.
I learned how to make bone broth and changed everything to organic as much as possible. I bought e-cookbooks (which I’m happy to share) to learn to cook without carbohydrate-filled flour. They also have some great stevia recipes for the sweet tooth I used to have. My food cravings are now gone. Zero. Zilch.
OMG!! What a tremendous difference diet has made in my life! Why didn’t I do this sooner???!! I’m no longer depressed, have anxiety or “all over the place.” I no longer have phobias or experience paranoia (which only came on when Lyme ran amok). I’m actually rather boring….gratefully so.
I’ve also changed most of my cleaning supplies to homemade clean living and use organic makeup and hair products.
I started up on coffee enemas again (something I did early on during my initial Rife activity so I could detox faster). It helps to relieve the herx reactions. My main information on that comes from drlwilsondotcom. I like a lot of his philosophies even though a few are a little too “out there” even for me. But I have learned to embrace coffee enemas and even kinda look forward to them. Kinda.
In February I put together a simple near-infrared sauna in my bathroom. Then I learned the art of dry brushing the “right” way to stimulate the lymphatic system. ANYTHING to minimize the herx reactions from healing. “No pain no gain” is true with Lyme clean-up. Excellent in helping sweat all those little buggies out!
I can’t remember exactly when I got interested in essential oils but it was sometime early this year and I couldn’t get enough of them. Still can’t. They’ve helped relieve a lot of herx effects, moods and sleep.
I’m also dabbling in Bach Flowers even though my moods aren’t needing them as much anymore. My teenage daughter, who has Lyme and is my next project, is benefitting from them quite a bit. The story on them is fascinating!
Earlier this year I bought an amethyst biomat. It’s amazing! I was sold when I visited my doctor and saw the difference in my before and after test results just by laying on it for 20 minutes.
I also invested in a high pH water system that I still use but have since learned that spring water is very good for you as well. I might not have bought that in hindsight but then again, I’ve been so desperate to get well that I’ve run up quite a hefty bill. I told you it wasn’t cheap. But wouldn’t I do the same thing if I was diagnosed with cancer??? Honestly, I think it would’ve cost a whole lot more. Either way, I’m here to tell you what things I did and used and how I got my life back. It may have been the combination or all or part of them.
As of this past Tuesday, (I try to get tested every 3 months or so.) I am 100% Lyme-free, Lyme co-infection free, parasite-free and Candida-free. I’ve even managed to put Epstein Barr “back in the cage.” It was responsible for my Fibro. My liver is working at 99% capacity! The Rife footbaths used to be disgusting but they aren’t nearly so much anymore.
I’m still not in the clear. I have to boost up my thyroid and adrenals but they’ve gone from 2% working to 39% and 59% respectively. My lymphs and gut still needs some help but I’m getting there. I was seriously more shocked about the Candida being gone more than the Lyme since I know how hard it is to get rid of. Thanks to the Rife, which also has a program for Candida, I was able to zap that baby as well as take colloidal silver specific for Candida. I still have serious heavy metal issues that I need to address next.
I drink warm lemon water every morning. I drink different herbal teas throughout the day such as pau d’Arco, nettle and burdock.
I bought a rebounder and it’s on my next list of to-do’s since it stimulates the lymphatic system. When you are sick heavy exercise is the last thing you should do. The body has to heal. So now I’m moving in the next direction: gentle exercise.
So here is my daily schedule:
7:00am-8:00 Supplements & Homeopathics – Lemon water – Essential oils – Biomat
8:00am Vitamin Smoothie
1:00-2:00pm Lunch – Essential oils
2:00-2:15 Body Brush
5:30 start Dinner
10:00 Supplements & Homeopathic meds – Essential oils
Rife all night
10:30 Lights out!
By the way, my marriage was saved. Like I said in the beginning I was on the brink of divorce. My husband just couldn’t see how sick I was and it was causing all sorts of problems. I’m too embarrassed to tell you how desperate I was for that Rife and what I did to get it. Maybe I’ll “tell all” in my book lol if I ever write one. Spending so much time, energy and money on getting better has produced results that I didn’t believe were possible. My husband is finally a believer. My doctor helped me a lot but it was also my determination to get better that led me down all the experimental paths I’ve taken. Having a benchmark and then subsequent testing gave me courage to go on. I hope with all my heart that my story will encourage you all to continue on with your journey.
I had some reservations on whether to post my results. I didn’t want to brag nor be ridiculed for my hard work. But I just couldn’t, in good conscience, keep this information to myself. Not when it might help someone else. I pray that it has.
