I KNOW WHY LYME DISEASE EXISTS – a personal perspective

I have diagnosed Lyme disease. I believe that I will always have it, although I have worked hard to put it into remission. Many times along the journey of the last several years, I have been despondent and discouraged and wondered why God (or the Universe or Source or what Dr. Joe Vitale calls ‘The Great Something’) has allowed this disease to appear and grow to epidemic proportions.

After seven years of wondering and wandering (not quite 40 years, like the Isrealites in the desert, but long enough) I figured it out a few days ago. It’s meant to be a wake-up call for functional medicine, self care, and DIY health. Not much in mainstream Western medicine has is helpful in either testing for Lyme or treating it. The same is true of the co-infections that almost invariably come with the Lyme bacteria – including another parasite bartonella and the parasite babesia, among others.

And even with the guidance of a good LLMD (Lyme Literate Medical Doctor), this is not the “pill for your every ill” medical model that is the basis of Western mainstream medicine. You have to participate by following the protocols for antibiotics, homeopathic remedies, and supplements. But you also have to change your diet and lifestyle. That’s it. No other way.

  • You have to eat right 100% of the time. For me, that means no grains, no sugar, no soy. Some of you may have to give up dairy.
  • You have to sleep enough and on a regular schedule.
  • You have to figure out if you have toxins and get rid of them.
  • You have to police your cleaning supplies and health and beauty aids to keep your toxic load to a minimum.
  • You might have to be careful about mold or EMFs or other environmental toxins.
  • You will need to increase your movement (not necessarily “exercise” in the traditional sense) and lower your stress.

All of the above will strengthen your immune system and help your body fight off not only Lyme Disease, but anything else that may be attacking from the inside or the outside. So it might be that we who have Lyme are the lucky ones, because we got the message first. But the message is for everybody, or at least everybody living a modern Western lifestyle. And I’m happy that I figured that out, and happier still to share the message with you.


Lyme Disease

Looking back on my life, I would say that being diagnosed with Lyme Disease was among the best things that ever happened to me.
WHAT? Did I just write that?
Yes, and I mean it. The test that confirmed my Lyme Disease was done in September of 2013, just a little more than three years ago. In many ways, I am not the same person I was then. Here’s who I am now:
I am a person who put Lyme into remission by relying on herself and her own research and instincts far more than on doctors and pharmaceuticals.
I am person who is grateful for being forced to retire from a teaching career that I enjoyed very much, but which was adding to my stress and not adding to my health.
I am a person who enjoys a slower, quieter, healthier life.
I am a person who is careful about diet and exercise.
I am a person who gets enough sleep.
I am a person who realizes the connection we all have to each other through a higher power. It can be called Source, or the Quantum Field, or God, or whatever else you might choose to call it.
But the greatest discovery I made is the one I actually want to share with you. It’s about your intuition. Yes, your intuition. I have found mine, and I can help you find yours. Stay tuned.

I am here to share what I’ve learned since I stopped being a teacher. I retired from a career in the Wisconsin Tech College System about three years ago. I loved the job, but I had Chronic Lyme Disease and was unable to continue. Today that disease, along with my Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and other autoimmune conditions, are in remission. If you want to know how I did that, or how to keep yourself healthy so these illnesses don’t happen to you, stick around. I’ll tell you everything I know.
