I am a 28-year old, holistically-minded woman, in the early stages of my quest to heal from Lyme disease. I have been extremely health-oriented since my early 20’s, but prior to that subsisted on the SAD (Standard American Diet), was vegetarian and vegan through my teens (leading to nutritional deficiencies in my case), and used typical personal care items, cleaners, and other products in the home which, as I know now, are loaded with toxins.
I have suffered from various health aliments for years, so it is hard to know when I was infected. My Lyme-Literate MD believes it is possible that I have had it since childhood, but there is no way to tell. I was also recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease, the double MTHFR mutation (this mutation is incredibly common among those of us suffering from lyme and autoimmune issues- you can read more about it here) and severe mold allergies/toxicity.
I’ve created this blog to track my progress as I embark on an essential oil protocol for recovering from Lyme Disease. I have been following an AIP (autoimmune paleo diet) and will post about my progress on the diet as well. Also, I am looking to try multiple treatments such as homeopathy and intravenous vitamin therapy and will post everything I try and my successes and failures. I am also going to focus on how we can (and must) address emotional issues that, for many of us, have made us vulnerable to illness. Hopefully my results will be positive, and I will be able to share this information with others searching for ways to overcome this terrible disease.
My goal is to live through this disease, to overcome it, to bring my body back into a place of balance, and to come through on the other side transformed.
~ I wish you all healing and health ~
