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…

IGeneX Results Confirm Lyme Disease

Blood Sent To Igenex

Per the LLMD at my first appointment, I was requested to get an Igenex kit and have my blood sent to them for confirmation. I already had a kit previously sent to me, so today I had my PCP draw, label and spin it. I then drove 30 minutes to the nearest FedEx office to…

First LLMD Appointment

After following advice from ILADS, I just had my first LLMD appointment. My LabCorp paperwork was reviewed and he was convinced I had Lyme just based on that. He recommended the normal procedure of getting Igenex testing, so I will be having my local PCP draw and spin the blood. After the results come back,…

A Call From ILADS

So today I spoke with a lady from ILADS for 45 minutes and she gave me a rundown of everything I have come across already. She also gave me three reputable LLMDs within 2 hours of me. One LLMD was also recommended by HealingWell.com. She also called my wife later that evening to explain to…

Steroids – Round 3

Another sweet round of Methyl-Prednisolone, but this time for 3 days and at my home. My neurologist wanted me to take these steroids in preparation of the 9 new lesions on my last brain MRI. I knew I would get all the side effects from them: heartburn, insomnia, metallic taste in mouth, and feel worse.…
