HOPE TO HEAL

Hope for those suffering from Lyme Disease

A Diagnosis

Red Blood Cells

I saw my doc today for the low down on my labs. It’s not really very good. BUT I believe that I will defeat this crap, one way or another. “His grace is sufficient for me. When I am weak then I am strong. His power is made perfect in weakness.”~The Apostle Paul of Tarsus

He ran a test called, Coomb’s. It came back positive. Basically, I have what’s called Hemolytic Anemia. It’s an auto-immune issue. I have some “unknown” antibodies that are attacking my red blood cells and blasting them to smithereens. Mine don’t look anything like the picture above. Mine have a zillion foreign antibodies attacking. Then my liver can’t handle the load of crap that I’m sending it and it can’t carry the dead red blood cells out of my body fast enough so then my bilirubin shoots up. I think that’s about it. But basically my red blood cells are being destroyed at a rapid rate. And due to this my LDH is high which indicates damage to my internal tissues and organs.

My doc hasn’t seen anyone with this since he did his residency 5 years ago. He was totally blown away. It’s possible that I was reinfected in June when I had another deer tick. But no one really knows. He does know that in 2005 my CBC was completely normal. And in 2005 I thought death was knocking. So, he was greatly encouraged that this is a relatively new problem.

Good news is that my work on building hemoglobin is working. I went from 26 to 30. He really was pleased with that and couldn’t tell me enough how wonderful that was. I have to get it to 34. So, for now, we’re running tests every 3 weeks to monitor my RBC. I’m continuing with my detox protocol of coffee enemas, 1200 mg milk thistle, my molasses and yellow dock, dandelion root concoction, rifing and adding Artemisiae back in.

He doesn’t think it’s Bartonella as much as he thinks it’s Babesia. That’s why he thinks I’ve been reinfected. All the research he did and what could be connected to the Hemolytic Anemia is Babesia. Some of the best information out there for us on these diseases is on veterinary sites.

So for now, I’ll keep plugging away at it. Hey, lets be positive, now if you have these same labs come back at least you can suggest this to your doc. Part of solving this puzzle is finding all the pieces. Boy I wish I could get those corners. My doc explained to me about T1 and T2. These infections are sooooo intelligent that they’ve figured out if they can get the immune system to attack itself then it’s not attacking it. I’m sorry I can’t even communicate it back to you. It’s all very confusing, especially when it’s you. He writes it all down for me because he knows I’m going to research it and find more answers. I love my doc. He’s so compassionate and caring.

Well, it’s not like I haven’t had Babesia before. But it sure is a hard one to kill. I’ll be ordering more Artemisiae from Hepapro which in my opinion is the best on the market. Bryan Rosner even mentions it in his book, The Top 10 Lyme Disease Treatments.  Bartonella is still very active and I’m hitting it with the rife machine. It’s definitely connected to my back going out on me. But the area of my spleen is connected to all of this other stuff. So, we’re running a sonogram of my spleen to see if it is in fact enlarged. Which would make complete sense considering.

Don’t give up hope. I believe this is just one more hurdle to jump over. It’s a marathon, not a sprint. Remember that. When you think you can’t go any further, you can. Take a rest and continue the fight. Never, never, never give up!

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Philippians 4:13
