Many have asked what I have done in my journey to heal. I finally typed it up. I'm the first to say it's a combination of things and choices I've made throughout the years that got me here. I do feel certain things made a significant impact in moving me forward. Most of the things I believe in exist within this group. I share everything I've tried or still use. We also share things I havent tried because they work for others.
One of the biggest reasons the groups and website were created was to provide hope by empowering us with options through education with a focus on solutions.
These are just a few private pictures I took that I didn't intend on ever sharing. Not super comfortable sharing them but vulnerability is ok. It is a small glimpse, and only a small glimpse of a few moments. I have been to hell and back. I feel the things I chose moved me forward. I regret nothing in what I have chose or didn't choose. I followed my instincts. I am not saying my way is the way. I am not saying this will heal you. I am not saying other methods are better or worse. I am simply an open book and if sharing what I did helps you then I'm not going to be quiet about it.
Am I in perfect health? NO. Do I have bad days? YES. But .....
I have a life now.
I am a mother again.
I am a wife again.
I am a daughter again.
I am a sister again.
I am a friend to many.
I do things in the world again.
I laugh a lot.
I am drastically better.
I choose things that bring joy.
I protect myself.
Have I changed? For sure I have. I am extremely strong and I know it. Hell I had to be strong enough to treat my own child during my own battle. I had to be strong to set an example.
I am resilient.
I know who I am without a doubt. I have Lyme disease, Rocky mountain spotted fever, Babesia, Bartonella, Erhlichia, TBRF and several more. I was bedridden with the worst symptoms a human should ever have to experience. I assure you I was severe. Here is my list.
Hopefully I am remembering everything . Not in perfect order.
1. Got a LLND
2.. 18 months of IV antibiotics (plus 6 months oral)
3.. I took supplements and herbals throughout treatment and still take things.
4. I removed root canals and metals
5. Went to all natural protocol as soon as stable
6. I addressed mold
7. I address parasites
8. I always work on viruses.
9. Gut health also a focus throughout
10. Consistantly address immune system, detox and inflammation. Super important
11. Added PEMF, infrared photon mat
12. Added gentle exercise https://m.facebook.com/groups/289378845349477/permalink/730220017932022/
13. Fixed regularity
14. Added WAVE 1 frequency device
15. Established regular therapy sessions
💚I let go of false friendships early on. I held on to the people that stood by me and let the rest go. I let go of anyone who judged me or didnt believe me.
💚 I do not stay with dismissive doctors. They get fired. I will not let them dismiss me ever again.
💚 I did advocacy work throughout to give me purpose and to fight back.
💚I do not engage in negativity and avoid at all costs.
💚I am always seeking peace and joy wherever I can.
I'll edit as I add or remember things.
All of these things contributed to my healing and improving symptoms for me. Each thing I did moved me forward in some way. I regret nothing. 🤜💚🤛
I grabbed some of my symptoms from an advocacy post I did when I was sharing my suffering to educate the public years ago. I felt I should go through this list and check off what symptoms have went away. Keep in mind I suffered for years before treatment. Pretty amazing reminder.
