Wow, I haven’t updated you all in a while. It has been a whirlwind of a week and I have been extremely exhausted, so a lot of my time outside of treatment has been spent sleeping. But here I am! Ready to update you all on what has been going on 🙂 Hopefully you didn’t miss me too much…
Treatment for the day included B-17, chelation, embryonic stem cells, BEMER Therapy, and the Photon Genius. This day was a lot better than days 8 & 9, for sure. My hand was still pretty wrecked, and I still had a massive bump on my forehead, but other than that, things definitely started to improve. This is when I really noticed that my appetite is BACK… something I did not think I would ever have said 6 months ago when the smell of food made me sick to my stomach on a daily basis. I did notice that the floaties in my eyes have been rearing their ugly little heads more often, especially when exposed to sunlight, but I think that is mostly due to chelation.
This treatment day consisted of IVs of chelation, B-17, embryonic stem cells, BEMER Therapy, the Photon Genius, and a detox massage. Talk about a packed day! This day was not a good one for me. Felt the herxing pretty badly… headache, dizzy, body ache, tired, etc. I think the combination of the detox massage and the Photon Genius is what did me in… all that detoxing means a herx is bound to happen in my world. Laura did my detox massage this time and it was great- she does energy work so I definitely felt a difference. My face is looking much better, but still needs some work. The detoxing is rough on it, which is expected. Took a two hour nap to just try to feel better, woke up to eat and then right back to sleep.
Suuuuper simple day on day 12! It was kind of great because I was alone at treatment, so I had the place to myself. My treatment plan consisted of B-17, Vitamin C, BEMER Therapy, and Photon Genius. Took a nice long nap after treatment because I was just so damn tired. I’ve been having a hard time falling asleep, probably because of the naps, but once I finally fall asleep I am out until my alarm goes off in the morning. I also experienced some pretty hardcore cramping in my abdomen out of nowhere which was weird, but they went away after an hour or so.
Woof. Another rough one for me and my veins. It was an ozone day, I started off with the Photon Genius and then after ozone I got a bag of embryonic stem cells, and BEMER therapy. So, started off in a bad way and had to get stuck twice on one arm for ozone. They have to use thicker needles for ozone, so getting stuck and then feeling them wiggle the needle around, then feeling blood drip down you arm, then getting stuck AGAIN is not good for one’s anxiety (especially when you can’t watch whatever is going on). This was the arm that blood comes out of to go into the ozone machine, so it is important that they get a good flow going right off the bat. Once that got hooked up, right away Yolanda started marking some weird noises. Never good, right?! So I look over, and there are WHITE CHUNKS IN MY BLOOD. COMING OUT OF THE HOOKUP FROM MY ARM. What the eff is that?! So I start to freak out a bit and she tells me it’s cholesterol. What?! I didn’t know I had so much fat to get rid of that it had to come out that way, but okay. I mean I guess it’s better that it happens and gets out of my system, but it was a weird and somewhat creepy experience. I probably could have gone my whole life without that happening. I didn’t feel as weird after ozone as I did last time, so I call that a win. After ozone, I got my stem cells and got to chat with some of the other patients. This week, a whole new batch of patients started, so it has been very busy around the clinic. I saw one of the women that I spent most of my treatment with, and she was glowing. SO happy to see how well she is doing. She also told me that my energy seems much better, which I totally feel, too. Energy in the sense of happy, no longer feel like there is a cloud over me type of energy. Still working on the energy associated with fatigue- but I think we are getting there with that, too! I’ve been getting a lot of compliments about my positivity and my husband and mom have told me that I have life in my eyes again, which is more than I could ever ask for. There are some really amazing things happening here. It just makes me feel so hopeful for what is to come in the following months while these babies regenerate.
Not too bad of a day today. Started off with IVs of Vitamin C and embryonic stem cells, and hung out on the BEMER mat. My arms were quite sore from the ozone fiasco yesterday, so I was lucky enough to get an IV in the hand today. I also had a slight headache, but nothing too horrible. Super tired again, but always am after stem cells. They just get right to work! It’s awesome! I have been doing really great at listening to my body. When I am hungry, I eat. When I am tired, I sleep. When I need air, I go outside. It’s little things like that (also known as taking care of yourself) that I will be taking back home with me to incorporate into my “post-treatment” life. I know how important it is to continue to take care of my body, and I plan on doing so for the rest of my life. This is not something that is a quick fix- it is a total life transformation. I have to continue to take care of the precious stem cells inside of me so that they fix all that has been damaged all these years by the Lyme. Just because I’ll start to feel better doesn’t mean that I start eating junk again, or drinking often. I need to continue to take care of my body so that a relapse doesn’t occur- that means relaxing as often as I can, and taking it S-L-O-W when I get back. Anyways, back to Day 14. I saw Dr. B today to get some follow-up tests run. Luckily, my parasite numbers are SUPER down. There are still some in my system, but when I do the liver cleanse (more on that to come in future posts) when I get back, it will flush the rest of the parasites out of my body. HELL YES!! 14 days in, and the parasite that has been making my stomach a disaster for God knows how long is pretty much GONE. Something that NO other doctor ever bothered to test me for. So thankful to be where I am… have I mentioned that?!
It was a longer day today… I was super run down because I had a hard time falling asleep, so that stuck with me most of the day. It was totally one of those days that I felt like a zombie most of the day and didn’t really talk to anyone because I was quite sleep deprived. Treatment consisted of Photon Genius, IVs of Vitamin C and embryonic stem cells, a detox massage by Laura, and some work on my face. There were even MORE people today than Day 13- I was impressed that we could fit that many people in the tiny clinic! It makes me so happy to see how many people are finding out about StemAid because there is so much progress and hope here. People that have been struggling with Lyme for 25 years are finally starting to feel like their old selves- people that they thought they would never see again. It’s truly amazing. I honestly cry every time I think and/or talk about it. I had a slight headache again- I think it is the Vitamin C. I remember having issues with Vitamin C at Envita, and even just taking it as a supplement used to make me feel kind of hungover. But, it does what it needs to do, so no complaints here. I am SO ready to see my chiropractor when I get home! I need an adjustment from these hotel pillows!
That is all for now, my friends. As always, it’s very possible that I have typos…but I am tired, and going kind of cross-eyed from all that typing 🙂 Thank you so much for following my story. PLEASE- share this with someone who you think would benefit. What Dr. B and her team are doing here in San Jose del Cabo is truly amazing, and I feel so incredibly blessed to be here.
