Just sharing it here for those who think there's no easy way out...

I've been more than 10 years lyme free, no symptoms.
My daughter is still lyme free, since 2009 (she's 11 years symptom free then).

This spring, I got about 30 tick bites, if not more. Some years I get less, some more, never less than 5 bites a year.

Attached ticks, they are small. Nothing new for us, as during these 10 years, I get bitten every single year anyway...

Before, an infected bite would send me back to zero, or even worse.

This year, end of Feb beginning March I fell very sick with the .... flu. Probably Covid, who knows. It took me 2 months to feel a bit better: completely knocked down in energy.

Well, the ticks never stopped biting me, since February. I got so fed up treating the bites, because there were too many.

I use essential oils such as Olbas 2-3x a day on the bites. But this time, I left a few bites untreated.

Mistake!!

One bite started developing into EM rash. I noticed it when it was already like the size of my fist. [Roll Eyes]

So I started putting Olbas oil there, to no avail. Of course, I was still tired from the flu, and that could have been THE reason my body did not fight Bb, like all previous years, with dozens, hundreds of bites....

Olbas was useless. I needed then Borrelia nosodes (homeopathic), ingested and through my PE1 (infrared therapy). It helped. It would usually help me so fast that I wouldn't develop any lyme symptoms.

I got infected bites in these last 10 years (tested energetically through ART, dr K's tests). But they never developed into disease, as I immediately treated myself with the PE1 and Bb nosodes. I treated usually only ONCE and that was it. No symptoms.

This time, not. The EM rash continued to progress, slowly and less red (the color faded about 70% or more, but was still there in very light shades). When I took sun, I could see the redness forming the bullseye rash form. And it kept GROWING with the weeks.

My fatigue from Covid + lyme continued for weeks.
By the end of June, the EM rash occupied LITERALLY half of my thigh!!! [Eek!] [Eek!]

Very weak color, but visibly there under sunlight.

I think it was a double wham, and one infection just contributed for the other. Covid symptoms attacked my heart muscles (it was before the EM rash). I had heart pain for weeks...

By the middle to the end of July, after adding regularly celery juice (my main antimicrobial in these last years) and more Bb treatment with nosodes, the EM rash disappeared for good, fatigue lifted for good.

Now we are in October. Since July, I feel great again, fortunately I could overcome that crushing fatigue from the flu, topped by lyme.

I knew lyme was coming back not only because of EM rash and strong fatigue, but also from beginning of joint pains. That was my MAIN clear Bb symptom.

All gone, 100%, no more treatment.

My daughter did not develop any symptom for the last 11 years, but she hasn't been bitten as much as I have, as I'm more in contact with nature than she is.

So yes, again, no antibiotics did the job.

This time, I know that celery juice was the turning point for my acute lyme (EM rash is still acute). It's not chronic lyme though, but for acute lyme, it helped me!

Nice story Brussels. I have the worst debilitating symptoms from Bartonella.

Sometimes I dont even know if they're herxes anymore. Mentally I'm gone and had to go back on psych drugs, with still no relief

I'm on abx currently.
