                             LYME DISEASE TREATMENT

I am not a doctor; however, I have done extensive research on the treatment of this disease and I have interviewed many chronic Lyme patients and spoken to several doctors. For the past six years, I have been prescribed nine different antibiotics by six doctors. All but two of these physicians are what I call "AIDS" (Arrogant & Ignorant Doctors.) The reason for this is that many doctors don't understand this disease, and because of this, they don't always prescribe the proper doses of medication or the right medication at all. Many adhere to outdated information such as: If the blood test is negative, the patient doesn't have the disease or that a simple ten day regimen of antibiotics will kill the bacteria. This simply is not true and many doctors will argue with patients because they are ignorant in that they really don't understand the disease or they are arrogant in thinking they know more than you because they went to medical school. Many of these doctors follow the CDC standards which are outdated and self serving with some of the doctors on this board still stating there is no such thing as chronic Lyme disease. Truly, wouldn't it be refreshing if a doctor that really wasn't up to date on a disease would realize this and listen to his or her patient and research and learn about the disease? I seriously recommend seeing a LLMD (Lyme Literate Medical Doctor) or a doctor with an open mind.

                                FOUR STAGES OF LYME DISEASE

THE LYME CONSPIRACY



STAGE 1. The patient contracts Lyme disease and is treated within the first several weeks or months with 30-90 days of proper antibiotics and no further symptoms exist. (Most common)

STAGE 2. The patient goes untreated for Lyme for years and the disease infiltrates the heart, brain, and other vital organs causing severe medical and psychological issues. 

STAGE 3. The patient goes untreated for Lyme for years and the disease attacks the heart, brain, and other vital organs causing disabling and agonizing symptoms often leaving the patient in a wheelchair and unable to function normally.

STAGE 4. The patient is mostly bed ridden and  the disease has taken over the body leaving the patient without hope and in many cases embracing death. The passing of the patient is imminent.

                             TREATMENT
STAGE 1. 30-90 days of strong antibiotics.

STAGE 2. 6-12 months of strong antibiotic cocktails followed by a regimen of daily antibiotics (type that offers the best response to the patient) Also, a daily regimen of natural supplements to strengthen the immune system, including: Vitamin C, B, D, E, Omega 3, CoQ10, garlic, ginger root,  organic apple cider vinegar, and pro-biotics. Eat a healthy low sugar, high protein diet. (Lyme loves sugar, hates protein.) Keep alcohol consumption to a limit. Regular, moderate exercise, meditation and chiropractic care. Drink 8-10 cups of water a day and get plenty of rest.

STAGE 3. A regimen of daily antibiotics (type that offers the best response to the patient) May include intravenous or oral doses. Also, a daily regimen of natural supplements to strengthen the immune system, including: Vitamin C, B, D, E, Omega 3, CoQ10, garlic, ginger root, organic apple cider vinegar, and probiotics. Eat a healthy low sugar, high protein diet. (Lyme loves sugar, hates protein.) No alcohol, light exercise, meditation and chiropractic care. Drink 8-10 cups of water a day and get plenty of rest. (I recommend trying a raw fruit and vegetable diet with nuts,egg whites and protein shakes for 6-12 months to help rid the body of the spirochete.)

STAGE 4. A regimen of daily intravenous antibiotics (type that offers the best response to the patient) and what your doctor prescribes. Also, a daily regimen of natural supplements to strengthen the immune system, including: Vitamin C, B, D, E, Omega 3, CoQ10, garlic, ginger root, organic apple cider vinegar, and probiotics. Limited exercise, meditation and chiropractic care, no alcohol, and much rest. Drink 8-10 cups of water a day and eat a raw fruit and vegetable diet with nuts, egg whites and protein shakes for 12- 24 months to help try and rid the body of the spirochete. Keep an open mind to holistic healing as well as traditional methods.
