(This is a follow-up to My Story: How I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease)
I had certainly heard of Lyme disease before I was diagnosed with it. In fact, was tested for it 5 or 10 years ago, the test came back positive, and they put me on Doxycycline. (Surprise!)
There are several guys in my town that told me they see an alternative medicine doctor around 40 minutes away. After doing lots of research, and learning the “main stream” doctors prescribe Lyme patients LOTS of antibiotics (months at a time, sometimes by IV)... and after my initial experience with 3 months of Doxycycline, I decided I wanted to stay as far away from that as possible. The 3 weeks of Doxycycline made my body hemorrhage to the point where I almost threw up. It ruined my appetite. And I'm one of the lucky ones.
I was diagnosed with Lyme disease in July 2017. I’ve generally been a healthy person, or so I thought, I weighed around 180 pounds which isn’t bad for someone 6 feet tall. I have backyard chickens so that I have fresh, high quality eggs since 2015. I’ve been seeing a chiropractor for almost 2 years. Finally got my disk back into place in early 2016, for reference. So I thought I was doing great.
I'm sharing the following story, thoughts, and follow-up in the hopes that it can help someone else going through similar symptoms. I feel your pain, and know that there are solutions.
The general diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease in dogs is similar to humans. Dogs get the same antibiotic, Doxycycline. And they show similar symptoms, including lethargy, joint pain (limping, particularly if the dog limps on the right leg on one day, and the left leg another), fever…
I also asked a local veterinarian about giving vitamins & supplements to canines. Here is what they said:
This is a one-page, quick and simple diet for reducing inflammation in the gut and body. It helps get rid of yeast overgrowth like Candida.
There is no counting "points" or anything similar. Eat as much as you want! Most people find this diet to be a good "healthy human being" diet, and it may help with treating a wide variety of cancers, illnesses, and diseases.
I was recently diagnosed with Lyme disease, and have since been researching Lyme disease identification, treatment, diet, managing stress, and even treating canine Lyme disease with vitamins and supplements - humans, too!

You may have already found my previous articles discussing stretches and exercises for lower back pain, and the follow-up article after I started seeing a GOOD chiropractor. For me, the neck exercises were helpful after my lower back issues were straightened out. My worst pain was in the L4 / L5 disc, which the chiropractor popped back into place after 4 adjustments. This was the first step in my recovery. Now, I'm trying to re-train my muscles such that my posture is correct.
I had written a review of my berkey water filter when we first purchased it in 2014. We have been using it nonstop, putting approximately 1 gallon per day through it from our city tap water. If you refer to the photo, you can see the layer of fine sediment (dirt) coating the bottom two-thirds old filter. Note that the filter was still working fine, the water tasted great, but the upper tank of the filter wasn't draining because of the clogged filter. It was taking a full night to filter just 1 gallon of water. After replacing the (2) filters, we are now filtering a gallon in less than an hour.
Below is the letter that we sent to Berkey (and their response). Enjoy!
I recently found this article:
Real-Time 432 Auto-Pitching Video Player
And I wanted to chime in and share my findings - I think they're on to something! I used VLC on my Mac Mini to change the frequency to 432Hz, then opened the same song in iTunes using the default frequency.
The VLC / 432Hz configuration sounded much less harsh! Amazing.
It turns out that in 1936, the powers that be decided to re-tune "A" to be 440hz instead of 432hz. So since then, we've been listening to music that irritates us at a cellular level. It causes stress an disease:
You may have already read some of my blog posts on lower back pain and chiropractors. I've found that while a chiropractor can get you out of pain using spinal adjustments, yoga will strengthen your muscles and correct your posture (when done correctly). The first thing you learn about doing yoga is the importance of correct breathing and how it relates to your posture. I've done a bit more reading and it turns out that breathing is much more powerful than many believe.
