๐Ÿ’š Lyme Awareness Day 8: Treatments ๐Ÿ’š

If caught early, Lyme disease is usually treatable with antibiotics. However, many cases of Lyme remain undiagnosed for years ๐Ÿ’š

There is no official treatment for Chronic Lyme Disease.

Chronic Lyme patients have no other choice but to pay out of pocket for expensive alternative treatments that do not always work. Some treatments work for some, and not for others.

I can only tell you what helped me, but this is specific to my Lyme symptoms. For more info on my Lyme journey and treatments, check out my Chronically Healed Video!

The treatments that helped me the most were:

IV Therapy with saline, vitamin c, vitamin b complex, magnesium, calcium, and glutathione, The Paleo Diet, Biofeedback therapy, NUCCA Chiropractic, Various supplements, THC Medical Marijuana.

Conventional medicine failed me. I struggled for years until I finally found a naturopathic doctor who understood my condition and actually helped me get better.

If conventional medicine is not helping you and you are getting sicker and sicker, it is okay to seek out alternative treatment. There is no shame in going to a naturopathic doctor, especially when you are receiving no help from traditional doctors.

But please remember to use good judgment. There are many people out there preying on desperate lyme patients. Iโ€™ll talk more about how to avoid scams in a later post.

If you have Lyme disease and have found an effective treatment, please share in the comments! There are so many suffering from this disease with no direction, your information could really help someone!

CHRONICALLY HEALED: Kikiโ€™s Chronic Illness Story

How I Overcame POTS and Lyme Disease: IV Therapy, Marijuana, and the Grace of God!

After being sick for 10 years, I am now alive healthy and thriving!
My healing journey was non-linear. Watch my full story to get the most out of what I learned from living with and overcoming a chronic illness.

I was diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS aka Dysautonomia), Lyme disease, and Babesia.

My symptoms were feeling faint (chronic pre-syncope), low blood pressure (hypotension), low blood volume (hypovolemia), nausea and stomach pain, chronic fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, social anxiety, cold hands and feet (cold extremities), sensitivities, brain fog, TMJ, neck pain, and more.

The treatments that helped me were:
– Biofeedback therapy (InnerBalance by HeartMath)
– Jugular Venoplasty (Transvascular Autonomic Modulation surgery)
– NUCCA Chiropractic
– TMJ Orthodontic Treatment
Paleo Diet
Supplements
Vitamin IV Therapy
– Medical Marijuana THC

BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, none of these treatments would have helped if my heart was not open to receive healing. Spiritual and emotional health are interconnected to physical health. IT WAS ESSENTIAL for me to be healed spiritually before I could be healed physically.

As I grew closer in my relationship with Jesus, I grew closer to his healing. He healed my soul and strengthened me to be the overcomer God created me to be!

If you know anyone with a chronic illness and needs hope, send them this video! It is my new mission in life to raise awareness, advocacy, and hope for chronic illnesses!
