This is true.
First of all, I am not a practitioner. I am just someone who has had to fight their own battle for a long time. I have 3/4 of an Engineering degree, a Real Estate license, one year of study with herbalist Kami McBride, 6 years at a local Health Food Store, and many hours in front of Medical Doctors & other licensed medical professionals.
I saw my first Chiropractor in 1999.
I first went gluten-free in 2002.
I first joined the Weston A. Price Foundation in 2003.
I saw my first Acupuncturist in 2003.
I saw my fist Homeopath in 2003.
I saw my first Nutritionist in 2005.
I saw my first Naturopath in 2005.
I first took a cooking class from Jessica Prentice, the originator of the term Locovore, in 2006.
I got my first & only colonic in 2007.
I saw my first Holistic MD in 2010.
All in all, I have spent enough money, time & energy to have a Medical degree, but, even if I did, I would tell you to go find someone locally that you can sit in front of.
Lyme Disease, as well as most other health issues, tends to be complicated. Once the body is out of balance enough to actually be diagnosed with a disease, there are multiple issues. It takes someone with experience to be able to put the pieces together. It also takes someone with a perspective outside of ourselves who might see things that we don’t. You need someone who can get to know you & guide you.
My experience, clearly, is also that no one person will have all the answers. And your needs will change over time. Healing happens in layers & as the layers are excavated, the approach may need to change.
The point is, though, seek help from someone with experience. Maybe multiple people with experience. The information on the internet can be extremely helpful & it’s good to empower yourself with knowledge, but the vast amount of information can be overwhelming & lead you in circles if you don’t have someone to help you figure out what information if right for you. Shop around. Find someone who seems to really be interested in finding the best treatments based on your individual needs.
If you don’t already have someone that fits this description, try the resources on this site listed under Find a Medical Practitioner.
