Life With Lyme: Herbs-Leeches-Eye of Newt

September 8, 2016

Well, it's been a few months since my last scintillating post.


My daughter Arianna and I have been on a new protocol: LDA/LDI-Low Dose Immunotherapy and Low Dose Allergy. It's going. That's all I can say at this point.

                                              Bats in the Belfry-Detail  



When I first started looking for help, pre-internet, the allopathic medical community had absolutely no help for me. Hell, they're still basically useless. I tried just about everything, and I mean EVERYTHING. I wanted my health back.


Soooo....colonics? You betcha!

Homeopathy? Yep.

Energy work? Sure.

Shots of some substance I don't even remember (probably sugar water). I'll take it!

Massage? Hurt like the dickens-what's a dickens anyway? Do it.

NASTY Chinese herbs? Ugh, bring it on!

Acupuncture? I'm in line.

Supplements I've never heard of? Here's a check.

German remedies from a fascinating apothecary in Chicago? Take a number.

Past life trauma? Shhhh, don't tell anyone.

Food changes? You name it, I tried it.


Then, as I was lying on an old doctors bed in a very dingy office with some ancient white man holding magnets over me, I thought: He's crazy, I'm crazy, the whole world is crazy. Stop the madness!


I returned to westernized medicine; which had failed me in the first place. Drugs galore! Pain killers, Cortisone shots, nerve blockers, anti-depressants, anti-anxiety, muscle relaxants, sleep aids, arthritis creams, MRI's, Cat scans, (found no cats, but there was a schnauzer) X-rays, two new hips due to the bacteria feeding on the soft tissues-icky, I know.  I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but I think the picture has been illustrated sufficiently. 


Unpaid medical expenses up the wazoo. An insurance company that is silently praying that I drown.


Oh it's been quite a ride and the fun never stops, but I must: my meds are calling.
