I have Lyme disease now what?
You might think the first thing you need is a super amazing doctor. This is not always the case. Personally I had some of the all-time best doctors and some of the all-time worse doctors. I still suffered for 12 long years. Lyme literate doctors are hard to find and often do not take insurance. Often paying $500.00 for a first visit alone. During the first 12 years of my illness I spent over $150,000 in doctor visits, prescriptions, supplements and testing. Obviously money and the best doctors did not fix my Lyme disease alone. In 12 years I should have been healed several times over.
Becoming your own advocate is by far the biggest thing you can do to beat Lyme. That was a game changer for me. I became my own advocate and gave myself permission to heal. This is by far the very first step you should take. Emotional blocks should be addressed immediately.
I know you are feeling tired, sick and desperate. You wonder how you can even read this article yet alone heal yourself. I know that you can do this. Deep within each of us is the ability to heal and grow. To prove my point this time I am going to beat Lyme without using a Lyme literate doctor and use only doctors that take my insurance. I did it once I know I can do it again!
I will be taking you on my wellness journey. Because this is not my first time attacking Lyme I have already completed several steps in my wellness journey and I can go straight to treating Lyme. If you have Lyme it is important to understand that treatment is not a race. Baby steps moving forward until finally you are Lyme free. In order for the treatment plan to work with lasting results, it is important to understand that there is a correct order; proceeding in that order is very important.
After a 12-year roller coaster ride of ups and downs and healing and setbacks, I became my own advocate and rolled up my sleeves and started researching. I had a lot of trial and error but I continued to move forward. About 2 years into my studies I found this article. It was ironic because everything I had spent months and months learning was in this one article. I think the tedious learning allowed me to see the importance of this one article. I am sharing this with you as a starting point. If you open your mind, I believe you will also see lasting results.
Print out this article and keep it handy. Read it and reread it. Research. Try to grasp at least part of the article. Lyme treatment is in steps so you really only need to understand the first part of this article. Once you master the first steps you can move to the next pages. I have included just a few of the first steps that Dr. Klinghardt feels is important prior to treating for Lyme.
Take note of the following points
· Address Dental health and mouth issues including heavy metal detox. Dr. Klinghardt won’t even see a patient until they have completed this step. It is that important. It is also a step most people will NOT do.
Understanding each level of the pyramid is important. Think of it this way. When you are attacking Lyme, your body should be performing at its highest level. You will need your detox pathways and gut working smoothly. If not when you take supplements you won’t be able to fully absorb the nutrients thus wasting your time and money. Same goes for when you are finally killing the Lyme spirochete you will want your body to properly eliminate through the detox pathways. Otherwise you will just get sicker.
It took me years to understand everything in this paper alone. Not much has changed over the years when treating Lyme. The pre-steps steps are often overlooked. This is a perfect example of why I say you don’t need a Lyme literate doctor at first. You can work most of this program by yourself or with the help of an understanding doctor.
It will be your decision whether you choose to use prescription antibiotics or herbal, tinctures or natural supplements. I am going to approach kicking Lyme this time by using only natural products. I was on high dose antibiotics some costing as much as a 1,000 a month for 12 years. What I did to my body was insane. I don’t want to go that route this time.
Don’t feel overwhelmed. You don’t just one day decide to run a marathon. First you train, prep and buy the proper equipment. Same goes for treating for Lyme Disease.
Over the next few weeks and months I will be giving you information to help you get ready for the fight. I am here as a health coach but there is alot of support out there in the form of Facebook pages, groups, and doctors.
