I have been an infrequent poster on this site but wanted to share my
story to give hope to those struggling with Lyme.
I contracted Lyme disease in June, 2007. I did not see a tick or a
bull's eye rash but had the Lyme “flu”. My whole body was so achy it
was hard to even lay down on the bed. But the symptoms passed after
a couple of days and did not reappear until I had a chiropractic
adjustment in August. Twenty-four hours later I thought the
chiropractor had done somthing terrible to me…
Fast forward to Novemeber, I have a diagnosis of Lyme disease from
LabCorps with no co-infections. I took 12 days of doxycycline and
put in an order for a Doug coil from John Stolar and a magpulser from
Robb Allen. I felt a lot better after the antibiotics but nowhere
close to normal. Both rife machines arrived on January 17, 2008.
I rifed five days a week with Robb's machine and twice weekly with
the Doug coil. I had also started taking salt and vitamin C in early
December and continued on 4 grams of each throughout the spring. By
the end of May my only remaining symptoms were frozen shoulders, a
result of holding my upper body still for most of the fall to avoid
the excruciating pain of movement.
I have been re-mobilizing my shoulders for most of the summer, seeing
some therapists but doing most of the work on my own. I'm fairly
certain I can return to yoga class in September, October at the
latest. I'm not “perfect” but close enough.
So hang in there and never under-estimate the power of the rife
machines. I believe that was what knocked the little buggers out the
best (after the antibiotics had first crack).
