As many of you know, my husband Israel has been dealing with a mystery chronic sickness for the past 15 years. 3.5 years ago he took a turn for the worse and we were forced to make drastic lifestyle changes. We completely stopped eating out. We switched to a 100% organic diet, grass-fed meat, farm raised eggs and removed everything processed. (This means I cook…A LOT)
We started drinking only reverse osmosis, purified water, using herbs and tons of other supplements to try fight what was happening in his body.
Even after making all those drastic changes, there was still something very wrong.
We saw medical doctors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, reflexologists, natural doctors, holistic doctors. Nobody could pinpoint the root cause of his health condition.
Finally, after years of searching, we know we are fighting Lyme Disease. The medical community doesn’t have many positive things to say about fighting this disease especially if you are dealing with Chronic Lyme which means you’ve have it for several years, which we know he has.
Per medical industry, the “answer” for Lyme Disease is Doxycycline, a powerful antibiotic that is supposed to kill the Lyme bacteria. The problem is, Lyme bacteria is incredibly smart. Once it recognizes its being threatened, it creates a protective shell around it called a Cyst and waits out the storm. (Antibiotics.) Initially, the medicine may kill off some bacteria before the rest “ball up” and hide. The problem is, as soon as the patient is finished with their round or rounds of this powerful antibiotic, the Lyme bacteria come out of dormancy (Cyst form) and attack with a renewed vengeance.
At this point, the only thing the doctor can do is prescribe more antibiotics and the whole cycle starts over again. Sounds counterproductive, doesn’t it?
We have decided to handle the disease a different way. He is taking a strong Lyme bacteria homeopathic which the bacteria doesn’t recognize as a threat and using some alternative treatments to kill the bacteria. We are aggressively detoxing his body after the treatments because the bacteria releases a neurotoxin into the body when it dies causing severe pain, inflammation, joint and muscle weakness among many other things.
We are thankful to have a diagnosis but overwhelmed at the healing process. We could use your prayers! This process is like going to war. We have to be incredibly disciplined, consistent and strong. Israel is easily, the strongest person I’ve ever met. He gets up every day, in spite of how terrible he feels and takes his (1,000) supplements and does all of his treatments without complaining. I really don’t know how he does it.
We will keep you posted. It’s quite the journey but we are strong and we WILL get through this.
