For a week leading up to the major symptoms I was feeling lethargic, I couldn't work those long hard hours. My digestion was shaken. Then on the 7th day shit hit the fan. I was leveled with headache and fever like I never felt. All I could do for 10 hours straight was pant, lie on the couch and go into the pain. I remember very little from that first day. After the 10 hour spell I felt disoriented. I could eat a little and I drank spring water. I put together a healing concoction. The ingredients in the concoction were all supplement / edible forms: 1 tbsp charcoal, 1 tsp zeolite, 1 tsp clay, 1 tbsp chlorella, I added Ron Teegaurden herbs 7 capsules of each: diamond mind, Ron's super pill, liver support. I added 7 capsules each of garlic, cat's claw, resverotrol, andrographis, astragalus, kelp, rhodiola. I also added minerals from Endo-met which were tailored to my hair tissue mineral analysis results. I took everything that is in a capsule out. I mix all the pills and powders in a cup of apple cider vinegar. And let sit to dissolve. I also added fermented fish oil, essential oils, and parent essential oils (which are not essential oils but are cold pressed seed oils like black sesame, mustard and various other oils from a company I am blanking on). I added only a few drops of Young Living Thieves essential oil. I tried to take a tablespoon of this mixture a couple times a day. If I was feeling brave I put a bite of high meat in my mouth and then a gulp of the paste, swish, chew and swallow. High meat is controlled rotten meat. Basically it is meat in a jar that is burped everyday for a few weeks until it smells so bad it stains the curtains in your house with stink. I know this might sound over whelming but the basics are: something to bind (charcoal, chlorella, etc), something healthy (supplements, blood even) and some oils. I have even mixed a raw egg yolk in. My belief is the charcoal binds to the nutrients to make them hang around longer in the gut. The microbes can choose what they need and replace the space in the charcoal with toxins. The high meat or something raw, like an egg, adds microbes and enzymes to make things happen faster. In three days I was healed. The most amazing thing was that I came out of the fever / headache coma on the third day and I was able to direct my awareness to the lingering pain. As soon as I brought my awareness to the pain it mellowed out. I tried on all the spots one my head and body that were painful and one by one they dissolved into my awareness. They experience left me with a deep gratitude for Lyme. My heart was opened to the need for more rest, breath and especially awareness in my life. Thank you beautifully designed Nature.
