Lyme Disease Relief

By the time my son and I found Dr. Letelier Smith, we had tried everything. You know the story! Of course it started with the mystery symptoms and the casual- even cruel-dismissals from doctors and specialists. Of course it took years to get diagnosed, of course it was too late for both of us by the time we finally did. There was damage; to our hearts, our joints, our brains...

Lyme Disease...

My Journey has schooled me in Lyme Disease, literally and figuratively, and it has given me the knowledge, wisdom, and passion to help you with your Lyme journey. I see that as a blessing. This is my story of how I have come to help you in your story.

 

I chose an alternative path in treating my Lyme disease. When you get a Lyme diagnosis it’s not easy to decide what to do about it. As I see it, here are your options…..

1) Do nothing.

2) Pursue conventional treatment of antibiotics and antiparasitics.

3) Natural medicine, which includes herbal antimicrobials, homeopathics, nutrition, vitamins, minerals, and anything else natural I may be forgetting...

AND #4... which is something you may never had heard of before...

Lyme Disease


The procrastination in writing this blog post caught me off guard. I suppose it’s understandable, as my experience was intense and I wasn’t eager to relive it. But I promised to share my story and here it is.


I lived with Lyme disease for about 25 years and didn’t know it. If I had gone to a doctor early on, I don’t think any doctor would have considered Lyme, as I didn’t look like the classic Lyme patient. When I was first bit by a tick, I didn’t present with an ‘acute’ Lyme infection. Many doctors only believe that acute Lyme exists, not chronic, so that would have made it difficult to get diagnosed...

I had intentions of writing on a different topic for this blog post, but first, I feel I need to address the topic of our children’s health. This is serious. So please listen.

 

In late 2014 senior MIT researcher warned us that by 2025, half of our children were going to be Autistic. I’m not sure if this will come to fruition, but even if 25% of our children become autistic by 2025, then this is a serious event. In homes of autistic children, one parent doesn’t work as they stay home to take care of their child. What happens when these children are adults and the parents are no longer there to take care of them? The state will have to take care of them. This epidemic spans emotional, physical, and financial arenas...

1. Maya Nut ‘Coffee’


Coffee is like a tragic love story, on the slipperiest of slopes. The taste rivals nearly anything, but the aftermath is not so pretty. The jittery, spun out feeling, the adrenals begging for reprieve from continued fatigue, and the many loose stools that follow (you know what I’m talking about).

 

Now, Maya Nut has replaced coffee and become my new love. It has the bitter, rich flavor that I’ve always loved about coffee, without all the negative effects. It is not caffeinated so I add a touch of matcha (green tea powder) as I work on tapering off of caffeine all together...
