Handling A New Diagnosis

I thought I would share my journey a little more and explain my personal process for getting a brand new health diagnosis. This week I found out that I have chronic babesiosis and a pretty severe case of it. Babesia is a parasite that infects the red blood cells much like malaria but it moves at a slower pace. It is spread by ticks here in the Cape so I didn't get it on any of my exotic travels but right here at home. Here was my mental breakdown of the week!

 

 

Monday: Today I was informed of my test results and was feeling super excited to finally have a diagnosis. I felt confident that now that we are aware of the specific problem that I will be feeling better soon. I went in for my vitamin C IV and was feeling pretty buzzed and hopeful. A woman in the IV room educated me on her three year journey with babesia and what has and hasn't worked for her. I took some notes and it definitely planted a seed on how long this new journey may be, but I was...

The power of Vitamin C IV's!

 


 

I recently started treatment for Lyme disease and have been working closely with a functional medicine doctor. Part of my routine now is to go in twice a week for highly concentrated Vitamin C IV's and glutathione. I would like to say only at first I was skeptical, but it has been a month and I am still a bit skeptical!!

I have definitely felt a drastic difference after getting the IV's but I have also had three sessions that I didn't notice any difference at all. The last couple of weeks my body has been really slow to absorb the IV's and they have taken three hours instead of the 90 minutes they tell me to plan for. This week has been pretty rough because I came down with a chest cold on top of everything else so they decided to double my IV bag today. I had plenty of time allotted so I figured I may be laying on the BioMat for 4-5 hours and much to my surprise, it only took two hours! I am thinking this meant my body really needed it and was just...

The Power of CBD

 
I recently started taking a CBD supplement and have to admit I was extremely skeptical at first. I guess I was hesitant because I couldn't quite grasp how powerful hemp could be since it is not considered a drug like marijuana. I went to a conference last fall when I first learned about CBD and Endocannabanoid Deficiency. I had never heard of this before and although it planted a seed in my mind about CBD, it did not inspire me to try it for my own health issues. I suppose since nerves only have the ability to heal 1mm per day, I felt a little hopeless that any thing could really help speed up the process.

The last few months I have been experiencing entirely different symptoms of severe and some times debilitating joint pain throughout my body and my fatigue has been back with a vengeance!

I currently have four different doctors opinions that are contradicting each other so I have felt a little lost and haven't been sure where to turn. I'm currently going...
