Quick Health & Treatment Update

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 3 years since my last update. So… here is just a quick little update on my current health and treatment protocol. For my health, few symptoms remain and they are very sporadic. I contribute them to what I consume (to much coffee effects me and sweets, even though…

One Year In

As of this month, I have taken antibiotics for 1 year and I’m feeling pretty good, not normal, but good. The lingering symptoms I have are minimal and I can deal with them without resorting to a different treatment path. Based on my MRIs and my physical symptoms, something is working, I’m just not sure…

Brain Lesions Healing

My last MRI was back in July 2013, so I figured it was time to see if anything has changed. I just received the results and I have 1 new lesion on the brain and my C-Spine remained the same. The single lesion is a good sign considering the following: 12/12 – numerous lesions 07/13…

Possible Retrobulbar Optic Neuritis

Had a little symptom/relapse this week. A day after painting my basement steps, I noticed an onset of fuzzy vision. It was where the lighter colors were hazy and the darker colors were normal. About 2 days later I noticed a spot in the lower left quadrant of my left eye that had very little…

MS or Lyme?

I get that question a lot and I believe it is because people do not understand what MS actually is. MS (a disease that is characterized by loss of myelin (demyelinization)). Also, there are multiple scars (lesions) on multiple areas (optic nerve, brain, cervical and thoracic spines) that occur over multiple periods of times. MS…

Explain The Bands Doc

This post is long overdue, but the question remains: Why can’t doctors explain the positive bands on a standard Western Blot Lyme test even though it’s CDC negative? My very first Lyme test was negative and yet I had positive bands 23 and 41. I know I was CDC negative, but humor me and tell…

Myers Cocktail & Glutathione

Yesterday I had my very first Myers Cocktail which consists of Vitamin C, B12, and some other vitamins, followed by Glutathione. I actually had a more than usual amount of energy today and no fatigue. Upon my research for MS, several articles pointed towards following a Glutathione Repair Diet, as well as a Mitochondria Repair…

Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) & MS

Through more research, it appears MS patients have LOW levels of certain items like Iron, Magnesium, Zinc, Copper and also have HIGH levels of EBV. So I had myself tested for these particular items and my results were the same as statistics. Low Copper, low Magnesium, low Zinc, low Iron, and EBV was higher than…

Lyme First, Autoimmune Second

Every time I read an article or communicate with a person battling an autoimmune disease, there is always one thing in common, a Lyme test. They all have said they were tested for Lyme during their first set of symptoms and I am no exception. I was tested twice before being diagnosed with MS. So…

Minocycline

Although Minocycline is used to treat teenage girls with acne, it is also a powerful antibiotic that can pass through the BBB (blood brain barrier). If you have read My Story you will know that I was originally diagnosed with MS, but chose to follow the Lyme route. After the MS diagnosis, I began heavy…
