Hello, everyone! I haven't been here in a long time. I have overcome Bart, Babs and Brucellosis but still fighting lyme. I am much better and functioning fairly normal about 5 days per week. I have done everything but attribute most of my healing to Colloidal silver, treating parasites, yeast, diet and exercise.
I think I have a Mast cell disorder or at least a histamine intolerance. I live on Benedryl and herbal supplements for allergies. I am just learning about HI and MC. I can't find too much on it. Where do I begin?
Where can I find diet info or sample diets? Thank you all! Be well!

I'm very sorry to hear this, mvdr.. but at least now you know what to avoid and how to treat it. There is another VERY LONG thread I posted last year. You can search for it under my member #743.

I cannot tolerate traditional medicine and the doctors I've been to for Lyme just want to give me antibiotics which I feel have caused more harm than good.
I am pretty much on my own, like so many of us! Trying to find a traditional doctor to do MCAD testing but that is challenging, too.
Be Well, M
Without antibiotics I dont think you have a chance against Lyme. I am in cycles of many antibiotics all the time and that is the only thing that has reduced symptoms and knocked down Lyme to a manageable state.
When you first start taking them, it always seems very dark and you have a worsening of symptoms. But you should absolutely NOT use that as a justification to stop. Infact it means its working.
Over the years, the ABs will have less and less of a dramatic impact and you can pop them without thinking about it. This means the Lyme is under control.
There are so many times early on that I wanted to stop, but thats the Lyme telling your brain to ease up on the killing
(breaking up the post for easier reading for many here)

Some good info on here. Also some links not working yet, but this is run by volunteers
Want to chime in here - there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to treatment - we're all unique in our responses.
For some, longterm antibiotics is the answer. For others, not, like me, I'm allergic to antibiotics, and I go a natural treatment route.
Many are treating with herbs, like the Buhner herbs, Cowden protocol, Zhang herbs, etc. It's a matter of finding out what we respond to best.
I have elevated mast cells too and I have not figured it out for myself yet. I know there's many triggers for it. Hope to have more understanding some day about it.
