A LYME PATIENT'S JOURNEY TOWARD HEALING
This place is amazing. I can tell already that this is a place where healing happens. There are five other Lyme patients here with me in my "lyme patient cohort" and I'll be with them during the 10-days of treatment. Normally, there are 11 days of treatment, but our patient group came during Memorial Day holiday week, so they are doubling up on the therapies on the last few days. Infusio gets six new Lyme patients every week on a rotating basis. Each patient is at the clinic for 4-5 hours each day receiving various intravenous cocktails and other supportive therapies and then the final stem cell transplant at the end of treatment.
Here are scenes from this morning's view. Today's intravenous therapies include (as noted in Infusio's Lyme brochure):
Calcium EDTA - typically used to remove lead from the blood stream. However, it is known to have many benefits in optimizing the cellular terrain and helping cells rid themselves of metabolic waste and toxins.
Glutathione - naturally made by the liver, glutathione deactivates the destructive free radicals. Glutathione helps to recycle coenzyme Q10 - an enzyme found in the energy-producing mitochondria of all cells - back to full strength after it neutralizes free radicals.
Artesunate - is an antimicrobial generally used to treat malaria. However, in this context, I'm guessing we are targeting Babesia with me since Babesia is a "sister" of malaria.
Dioxychlor - Dioxychlor is a natural antimicrobial which supplies oxygen to the cells. Administered in an infusion, it may help eliminate toxins, parasites, bacteria, viruses, and yeast.
Neuro Amino Acids - This proprietary mix of amino acids is designed to support detoxification and repair of the nervous system.
I also received a thymus injection and trigger point therapy with De'Leon, the handsome 'Gladiator' massage therapist. Tasty bone broth soup, nettle tea, and green juice were also given to all patients.
Thymus injection is administered every day and plays a strong role in helping to support and restore the immune system. My bum will have to get used to that poke and sting every day! Yowzers!
