Blog 2, by Sue Blanton – After learning that I had Lyme, I read every book
that I could get my hands on about treating the
illness. My MD gave me several options that I might
want to explore, the herbal antibiotics or the
standard Doxycycline/Flagyl route.
Lyme disease is an east coast disease, right? Thats what we’re all taught. Since I am on a vacation in Monterey, CA (on the central ocean coast of california) this week with my family, I decided to spend a few minutes in the hotel room doing some research and making a wonderful video for you. Let’s see about the truth regarding Lyme disease in California.
Since I grew up in California and have lived here my whole life (and probably also got my case of Lyme disease here), this article is very close to home for me. I searched for help for years in California before I found a proper diagnosis. Maybe this information can save you, or a loved one, the same trouble.
The IDSA (Infectious Disease Society of America) does not recognize the existance of chronic Lyme disease and is hostile to its sufferers. ILADS (International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society) is the main advocacy group established to oppose the IDSA and help those suffering from chronic Lyme. In its latest move, the IDSA has declared war on ILADS. To read more about this battling, see an excerpt from the 2008 Lyme Disease Annual Report. You can help! Read this press release…
There is an upcoming Lyme disease conference on May 17, 2008. Speakers will include J Burrascano, Lee Cowden, Dr. Horowitz, Dr. Leventhal, Dr. MacDonald, Pat Smith, and Jeff Wulfman, to name a few. Read the full article to see the flyer for the conference.
Recently I posted about whether or not rife machines are fact or fiction. People want evidence. Do they work? Where’s the science? In that post I presented a few places to dig deeper and find that type of information. pH test strips represent another piece of this puzzle and also offer a bunch of other benefits. Lets explore…
If you haven’t already, check out the new Public Health Alert website. Public health alert is a free (or $25 for an annual subscription) Lyme-related printed newspaper. Everyone should subscribe to this newsletter, it is excellent. The updated website now offers most of their articles online for free. Don’t miss it!
The quote at the bottom of this post was posted to the lyme/rife group today. I want to address a few things. First, yes, there is a place where anecdotal rife user reports are posted, although it is badly in need of updating. Also, my book Lyme disease and Rife Machines has a chapter in it which includes the scientific experiment in which Doug MacLean observed spirochetes dying when exposed to electromagnetic frequencies. When you get to the website, you are interested in two links, “The Discovery” and “What is Rife Therapy,” both on the left menu bar.
You get to see more and more of my book, Lyme Disease and Rife Machines, online for free these days! This post is an excerpt from the book addressing herxheimer reactions, also known as “herx reactions.” Have no clue what that is? Keep reading to find out. Believe it or not, the herx reaction is one of the most important topics you will ever study as a Lyme disease patient or practitioner.
During my recovery process I was convinced that sparkling carbonated water with lemon was healing me. I could never go without it. But which part was it that helped me – the sparkling water or the lemon? The truth is quite interesting.
Many people believe they can heal from Lyme disease relatively quickly. This is not the case. It can take months or years to heal. This requires a careful treatment plan that utilizes non-toxic therapies so as not to bombard the body with toxic treatments (such as antibiotics) for years at a time. This post is an excerpt from my book Lyme Disease and Rife Machines and it looks at the long recovery process.
