My story of Lyme disease treatment

I have had symptoms of Lyme disease for years but have not believed it could really be a real disease for me. One doctor asked me if I had ever been in the North East, then when I said no, he said I could not possibly have it. A blood test also showed negative results for it.

Since I was 16 (1960) I have experienced the symptoms of Lyme disease but because Lyme was not discovered until 1975 in Lyme Connecticut doctors would not believe I could have contacted it in Boise, Idaho fifteen years before it was discovered in Connecticut and so far away. This leads the medical community to diagnose people with the symptoms of Lyme disease as hypochondriacs and they tell them that the symptoms are the result of psychotic mental issues.

I can not answer why I have had symptoms of Lyme disease, all I know is that I have had unexplainable strange symptoms for years that had no explanation. Things like; arthritis, joint pains, osteoporosis, head aches, depression, mood swings, episodes of anger, suicidal thoughts, temporary bouts of tremors, occasional facial twitching, temporary bouts of chills, poor digestion and digestive problems from diarrhea to constipation. The medical community believes on with these types of symptoms are proof of a hypochondriac and then discount that it can be a real disease. This is one of the dangers of the so called hypochondriac diagnoses.

Because Lyme disease weakens the immune system and the result is that it causes one to acquire other autoimmune diseases. Celiac, Candida, Arthritis, Osteoporosis, as well as type II diabetes, scientific researchers claim can be the result of a weak immune system. If one has any of these diseases it is hard to recognize that Lyme may be the underlying cause.

The medicinal community has only one treatment for Lyme disease and that is antibiotics. Yet antibiotics are often ineffective especially when the disease has been present for years . Antibiotics are reported that they can be fatal for someone one who has had the disease for years.

There are some on the internet who claim a dose of sea salt and vitamin C can treat it. Most of them also warn about the problems of herzheimers reaction and to be careful about not pushing it too fast.

I decided to try the sea salt treatment just to see if it would really work for me. One site I came across suggested a dose of 1 teaspoon with 1,000 mg of Vitamin C daily. I do not like the after taste of taking sea salt by tablespoon or mixing in water, so I make capsules using 00 size capsules. I started with two capsules of sea salt, 2,000 mg. Vitamin C and added 175 mg. of Milk Thistle. I took this for four days and stopped for three days to allow for herx. reaction to dissipate. Then I started again with one 00 capsule of sea salt, 1,000 mg Vitamin C and 175 mg Milk Thistle for another four days. By this time my herx. reactions was terrible so I only took it for two days and two days off. Then after three days resumed it on alternate days with occasional two or three days between. My herx. reactions were so so severe that some days I did not care if I lived or died. One day I experienced chills and shakes so bad that I wore my warmest winter coat (it was summer time) and still shook and chilled for several hours. Over the four weeks of this treatment my former rash reappeared, I experienced many increased symptoms that I had had at different times in the past.

What this proved to me is that I indeed do have Lyme disease even though all tests and all doctors who refused to believe it.

It also proved to me that the sea salt, Vitamin C and Milk Thistle regiment is an effective treatment for Lyme disease for me.
