My journey through Lyme Disease- Healing my body and mind.

Quick Update

on October 15, 2015

It has been about 7 months post antibiotic therapy and I am happy to report that I have remained well. I am back to working full-time and even traveling for work some with no ill effect. I have continued acupuncture treatment and feel that it has helped keep me healthy (thanks a million to Ash Goddard of Nine Needles (http://www.nineneedles.com). I have been able to ride my bike and even learn how to ride a dirt bike. I’m having a lot of fun and I’m super grateful. Some folks have been wondering about my progress, so I just wanted to share the good news. I’m still in remission and loving it. πŸ™‚ There is hope for those struggling! Hang in there my friends. Love, Lyndsey

    You need to turn your story into a book…what you did for yourself and how you managed and learned about all the treatments you did…you could easily find a publisher especially with Lyme in the news as much as it is now. There could be so many more people out there you could reach. And though each person’s case is unique, it could open up the minds of others who are lost in Lyme.

    This is so awesome!!! I’m sure you’re enjoying every day. It’s wonderful to hear from folks in remission… so many of the people blogging and writing and sharing in groups are the ones who are still really suffering. Probably because everyone is off enjoying their wellness πŸ™‚ hehe. Glad you are enjoying yours! I’m often curious how folks lifestyles change AFTER they’re well… what they do for prevention in so far as diets and supplements go. I am willing to bet I’ll be clinging to healthy habits when this is all through (healthy habits with occasional cocktails, that is). Cheers!!

    Hi Lindsey,

    I read your blog about 2 years ago when you were in treatment with Dr. Smith in Idaho. I was hoping you could shed some light on his treatment’s effectiveness as I know you had to get back on antibiotics afterward. I have had Lyme since I was 18 and I have been taking antibiotics for over a year and I just cannot take one more doxy without going crazy. Lymestop has been in the back of mind for years and before I make the journey out west I wanted to ask if you would honestly recommend it.

    (I’m from NH, so it would be more than a car ride unfortunately)

    Hope all is well!

    Hannah

      Hey Hannah- Unfortunately, it’s really difficult for me to say exactly what treatment was the winner in my situation, because I was on antibiotic therapy for 3 years straight and I did Lymestop while still being on antibiotics. However, there is a Facebook page that has been created by a Lymestop patient where you can read others’ experience with Lymestop. Search for “LymeStop Support and Information” on Facebook. There have been lots of people that have seen full recovery about 6 months to a year after LymeStop treatment. There have also been people who have not recovered with Lymestop. My experience with antibiotics was that I was MUCH WORSE for about a year after starting treatment and then gradually (really really slowly) started to get better. I do think antibiotics have to be periodically switched to be effective, though. Just taking one (doxy) won’t do it. I wish I could give you a more definite answer, but I can’t. Generally, what I recommend to folks is to give LymeStop a try. It might work for you and if it does, it’s a heck of a lot cheaper than long-term antibiotic therapy and much easier on your body. Wishing the best for you! It’s all very confusing and there seems to be no silver bullet.
