I am so grateful for my time at the Hansa Center in Wichita this past week! Thank you So much to everyone who helped to make this happen, whether with your generosity through finances, prayers or donating your time and energy to help get me there and back! I could not have gotten there and to this new stage of healing without you!
Lyme affects multiple systems of the body, so if it seems like when I post that I'm talking about a lot of different things, it's because a lot of different things in my body have been affected! The lyme bacteria crosses the blood brain barrier and damages it, so that not only does the brain get invaded by lyme but also other things that normally shouldn't be allowed into the brain. It has also affected my nervous system and heart, my digestive system, and more.
Over the last few days of treatment, my doc spent time on working on healing my heart, brain, nervous system and gut. He also worked on how to help my blood and the mitochondria of my cells heal so that the rest of me can heal! With all that we were asking my body to do, specifically with my heart and some junk in there, I had a bit of a reaction through the afternoon and evening on Thursday, but it stabilised by Friday morning. My doc had given me supportive supplements that would help with the reaction, but I had promptly forgotten about them and then felt so sick that I didn't take them until Friday morning... I've learnt for next time!
Now I am working on making sure I'm getting onto and sticking to this new protocol so that my body is able to make full use of everything that went on, and I should be seeing even more improvements really soon!
The good news is that my doc thinks I only need to come back for 3 days of treatment next time instead of 5, and it will be sometime in October or November! This is a really good thing!!
Thank you again so much to everyone who has supported my journey to getting well! I do appreciate and need continued help and for people to continue sharing my story :) You are a huge blessing to me!
