Hi Scotty,

I'm not sure about the symptoms you are having. Just a couple of thoughts:

Abx can make you feel worse before you feel better. It took me 8 months on abx before I started to notice improvement. During that time, believe me we all questioned whether I should stick with the treatment. The fact that I seemed to clearly herx gave us hope.

Lyme tends to attack where a person is vulnerable. So it could be the areas of your body that are symptomatic are vulnerable.

I think the constipation sensation you are describing might be what I experience too, a shut down in the intestine. For me, starting the SCD has helped a lot. I am not able to digest carbohydrates well and this was causing a cascade of intestinal issues.

Castor, there is a lot of interest in energetic medicine in the treatment of lyme. I think some of the best LLMDs are very integrative in their approach to medicine.

Hope you find a route to treatment soon.

Sherry,

i have read that herx term before what is this exactly?

i think that describes it best my intestines are hsutting down nothing goes in (my bloodstream and to me) and nothing seems to come out. for me though i get terrible urges to urinate. all in all, i think it was turkey, which i could get away with every now and then when i was not taking abx, but now is a real disaster. which leads to me wonder what i should eat next. cuz i can't eat anything (i mean anything; whether it be carbs or veggies or most meat!!) without some consequences and i can feel a yeast overtaking beginning to happen. now the doctors office said to eat some yogurt everyday or Acidophilus, but 'dairy' makes me cramp; really does not help here. what else could i do to keep the yeast at bay.

whats SCD?

Herx is short for herxheimer reaction. Refers to a flu-like, detoxing response to certain bacteria when they die. Lyme spirochetes cause this. While it is typical to be flu-like, you can get a lot of other symptoms. The response tends to be cyclic while on antibiotics.

SCD is the specific carbohydrate diet. It eliminates carbohydrates that cannot be broken down when there are major gut problems. In my case, testing showed that I was eliminating high amounts of sugar in stool. This should be absorbed high in the intestine, so proved the lack of digestive enzyme. Doctor prescribed this diet which is really helping. (Eliminates grains, sugars, starches, dairy that still contains lactose; allows fruit and honey.) Also, you start with food very easy to digest and gradually add things. You make your own yogurt and you can use non-dairy options; this is an important part of the diet. The diet strives to kill off the bad bacteria and replace it with good. There is an active thread on the forum about the diet.

Magnesium is important. Lyme likes magnesium, so we end up with deficiency. Your intestine needs magnesium in order to contract. I have to take it orally to help with the intestinal motility; I also take injections of magnesium.

Castor,

Just wanted to say that I'm glad you found someone who is interested in healing. :)

Many of us who post here have "voodoo" doctors and I dont think that any of us would be willing to trade them in for a conventional one. ;)

In my opinion to beat chronic Lyme you need someone who is integrative and who thinks "outside the box" and this is where alot of the "voodoo" comes in. Frankly, I dont know where I'd be without it. Energetic testing has guided me through this process.....I would definately be much more in the dark if this had not been available to me.

The most significant findings have mostly been confirmed with traditional labwork. Without the results of energetic testing telling my doctors where to look...we might still be searching.

I have never had my blood looked at microscopically....but I know of others who have and its something I would love to do if the opportunity presented itself. My friend just had something similar done and could actually see his white blood cells eating the Lyme. Very COOL.

Thats great that you were not charged for the doctors services. Fortunately, I am not in a situation where I'm unable to afford treatments, testing, etc.....however, one of my previous doctors gave me a full hour of her time at no charge (which was totally unexpected). It only confirmed what I already knew about her....she truelly wants to make a difference in people's lives....she wants to give people back their health and this is more important than making money. Its nice that there are doctors out there who CARE...and I'm glad that you found one. :)

Blech!

I started taking Flagyl this week and my tummy hurts! The doctor warned me this will happen, and I assume it will get worse as I increase the dosage. (I'm taking 250 mg tablets, starting with one and working up to six by the end of the week).

Any ideas on what I can do to help the nausea? If not, a little pity would be okay, too.

Castor, you'll find the yogurt making info (for non-dairy versions) on www.pecanbread.com.

Also, you might look for a pure acidophilus for the starter. Most yogurts/probiotics contain some ingredients that my LLMD says are really hard to digest. (Inulin, FOS, chickory, etc). I bought mine from Kirkman. Once you get a batch done, you can use that for starter for quite a while, then when the quality drops, use a fresh capsule of the Kirkman to make a new batch.

You are having so much digestive distress that the SCD might be helpful to you. It is designed for that.

Castor,

I had Darkfield Microscopy done on my blood as well by an ND.

Those little white dots floating around were probably yeast/candida and I too saw with my very own eyes parisites swimming around.

My ND called them 'blood parasites" but I know now they were lyme by all the pictures I compared.

My red blood cells were very clumped and sticking together.

Scotty,

Are you taking a probiotic at least 2x a day at least 2 hrs before or after abx? This is important. Also make sure your probiotic is dairy free if you have problems with dairy.

Also rule out prostititis sp? or BPH. Lyme loves the prostate. My Dad had to have his prostate taken out probably due to chronic untreated lyme.

everyone,

thanks for the advisions....

i want to take a probiotic to help but i thought they all had dairy i mean aren't probiotics pretty mad from milk? i will have to try to find some dairy free ones

and i checked the site for the yogurt recipe and was a little overwhelmed here at first. i am not much of a cook, but i do follow directions well. dod i use goat's milk is that my understanding. i will have to take a better look.

does the magnesium help against this is that why you take it?

Scotty,

Magnesium helps with constipation and keeping the intestine able to contract.

You can make yogurt with nut milks, coconut milk or even in veggies. Once you get the hang of it, it isn't that hard. It is also much cheaper than buying probiotics which can be expensive for good ones.

Yes, not all probiotics have dairy. You should be able to find a safe one.

I use goat milk, it seems many people tolerate it better than cow's milk. On the SCD it is suggested to people who don't handle milk to follow the diet for a month, then try introducing goat milk yogurt a tiny amount at a time (1/4 teaspoon) and gradually increase. Many people do tolerate this pretty well.

you know i have looked at all these special diets and none really work for me since i can hardly digest anything. i have been through the elminations and narrowed myself down to certain things that are tolerable and i can make it through my days with. so thats what i am eating now. i wish i could get more of a variety in though. i am not sure what to eat at times. i just want something wihtout any consequences or suffering. i can only imagine what that must be like.

i had a 3 day urine test sent to igenex so i can't wait to see the results.

thanks for the replies too, i can hang in there now; and knowing i can leave the site for awhile then return with the world falling apart to only hear thats normal is really great to have

I couldn't tolerate Flagyl. Uhuh, no way. I felt so sick, nausea, diarrhea, body aches and chills. I tolerated cipro better than flagy. I don' t think Rachel tolerated it either. I stopped taking mine after five days.

They gave it to me for BV, but that's due to the lyme. It didn't work. Didn't clear up the infection.

None of the diets are working for me either, I'm just not digesting anything, and now with my colon and everything so messed up, I'm becoming alergic to anything I eat regularly, so.... I have no idea what I can even eat now. I feel horrible no matter what I do.

The reality is sinking in about this. I've known something was seriously wrong for several months now. There were all the signs my body was falling apart. I've lost 55 pounds now, and it's not stopping. My hair has been falling out for about a month, I bruise like a ripe fruit. Where I had an IV recently stayed black and blue for over two weeks. Then there was just how I felt and the convultions.... I've known I was....

There were the clusters of Lyme in my blood, looking of pictures I realize that's what that was, I didn't know when I was looking at it... The guy seemed very concerned but I could tell didn't want to show it or even pointed out the clusters and seemed to move over them quickly.

For 8 years I've been trying to tell people there was something seriously wrong, but nobody ever took me seriously and just told me to see a therapist.

Now with how Lyme has been turned into a taboo in the medical feild because of money and profits, I don't think I am going to be able to get any real treatment, I haven't been able to work much the last 3 years so I have nothing, and nobody in my family does either. The reality is sinking in that I might not get better and I could very well.. .. ..

I wish I still had friends, This last year has been so lonely, but I have trouble talking with people and it just never goes well. This isn't exactly how I saw my life going.

Yes, lyme is incredibly debilitating. Sounds like you are taking some steps though, way to go!

sherry,

could you tell me how long you been on the SCD diet and how long you been treating the Lyme and how long have you been sick.

for the most part i wonder sometimes since my problems have been around so long how much of a chance i stand. you know what kind of irreversible damage has been done. alot of folks i have come across have all of a sudden starting getting sick so to speak; but i have been there my whole life.

somebody has to get this out. i mean really out there......if one of us meets Obama please ask him what his plan for Lyme patients is; that would have been my question on one of them debates. this should recognized sooner, treated before it mutates

thanks

Scotty, I have just been on SCD since July '08. Lyme I have had a long time. I think I got it in about '82-'83, at least then I had a tick bite and my neuro/pain symptoms started after that, and allergy symptoms went crazy. Ameoba infection was found too.

Finally got diagnosed with lyme in 2000. I have been treating for 8 years, and overall am much better just can't get off antibiotics with relapsing.

My guess is that celiac disease has undermined treatment, that was diagnosed in 2007, my gut is still in the healing process.

Interesting blog entry about gluten here in this lyme blog:

http://lymemd.blogspot.com/ nov.4

(link found on Lymenet)

Note also the discussion on lyme being chronic and almot asymptomatic until something else happens, often antibiotics..........then think back, what are antibiotics? Yes, they are mold.

Then, in a reply to antohter post, again this comment on unknown bacteriae: "I wont be surprised if the DNA fingerprint of these bacteria are not in the catalogue."

I keep reading abut that.

Sorry, I've been out of town and not getting on the internet.

Tommy, how's the flagyl going now? I never took it so I don't have suggestions. :(

I have a question for those of you who've been on longterm antibiotics.

I'm about 6 weeks into my antibiotics, and I caught a cold that's going around. Usually when I get a cold, I get rid of it pretty quickly -- a day or two usually. This one has hung on for at least a week and shows no sign of getting better.

So I'm wondering if this is just a virus that hangs on a long time, or whether taking all those antibiotics may be affecting my immune system and making it harder to shake the cold.

Thanks!

The Lyme could be affecting your immune system.

My kids and I got the cold going around and so did a lady I know at Church. It lasted well over two weeks for all of us. It was the longest cold I think I've ever had! So, it could also be that.

Hope you feel better soon!

It's been a while, so I thought I'd give an update.

After about 3-4 months on the antibiotics, I started feeling MUCH better. Since then, I've been pretty stable -- not feeling better, but not feeling worse. But overall, I'd say I'm feeling better now than I have in 10 years. I've also noticed that my allergies, which usually start up in April have been very, very mild. I also dropped about 15 pounds without trying.

I'm currently taking Doxy, Flagyl and Ceftin. I'm seeing my doctor at the end of the month, and she said she'll be changing the abx at that point. Also, last time I saw my doctor, I remembered to ask "How long will I be taking all these antibiotics?" and she said "Two years." I've been reading about how most doctors stop the abx treatement too soon, so I was actually relieved. She said she keeps people on the abx until they are symptom-free, and then an additional 6 months to make sure the lyme doesn't come back.

So, I'm far from 'cured', but I'm cautiously optimistic about the future!

    Celiac.com 05/21/2018 - Just a year ago, Starbucks debuted their Canadian bacon, egg and cheddar cheese gluten-free sandwich. During that year, the company basked in praise from customers with celiac disease and gluten-sensitivity for their commitment to delivering a safe gluten-free alternative to it’s standard breakfast offerings.
    But that commitment came to an ignoble end recently as Starbucks admitted that their gluten-free sandwich was plagued by  “low sales,” and was simply not sustainable from a company perspective. The sandwich may not have sold well, but it was much-loved by those who came to rely on it.
    With the end of that sandwich came the complaints. Customers on social media were anything but quiet, as seen in numerous posts, tweets and comments pointing out the callous and tone-deaf nature of the announcement which took place in the middle of national Celiac Disease Awareness Month. More than a few posts threatened to dump Starbucks altogether.
    A few of the choice tweets include the following:  
    “If I’m going to get coffee and can’t eat anything might as well be DD. #celiac so your eggbites won’t work for me,” tweeted @NotPerryMason. “They’re discontinuing my @Starbucks gluten-free sandwich which is super sad, but will save me money because I won’t have a reason to go to Starbucks and drop $50 a week,” tweeted @nwillard229. Starbucks is not giving up on gluten-free entirely, though. The company will still offer several items for customers who prefer gluten-free foods, including Sous Vide Egg Bites, a Marshmallow Dream Bar and Siggi’s yogurt.
    Stay tuned to learn more about Starbucks gluten-free foods going forward.

    Celiac.com 05/18/2018 - Across the country, colleges and universities are rethinking the way they provide food services for students with food allergies and food intolerance. In some cases, that means major renovations. In other cases, it means creating completely new dining and food halls. To document both their commitment and execution of gluten-free and allergen-free dining, these new food halls are frequently turning to auditing and accreditation firms, such as Kitchens with Confidence.
    The latest major player to make the leap to allergen-free dining is Syracuse University. The university’s Food Services recently earned an official gluten-free certification from Kitchens with Confidence for four of the University’s dining centers, with the fifth soon to follow.
    To earn the gluten-free certification from Kitchens with Confidence, food services must pass a 41 point audit process that includes 200 control check points. The food service must also agree to get any new food item approved in advance, and to submit to monthly testing of prep surfaces, to furnish quarterly reports, and to provide information on any staffing changes, recalls or incident reports. Kitchens with Confidence representatives also conduct annual inspections of each dining center.
    Syracuse students and guests eating at Ernie Davis, Shaw, Graham and Sadler dining centers can now choose safe, reliable gluten-free food from a certified gluten-free food center. The fifth dining center, Brockway, is currently undergoing renovations scheduled for completion by fall, when Brockway will also receive its certification.
    Syracuse Food Services has offered a gluten-free foods in its dining centers for years. According to Jamie Cyr, director of Auxiliary Services, the university believes that the independent Gluten-Free Certification from Kitchens with Confidence will help ease the anxiety for parents and students.”
    Syracuse is understandably proud of their accomplishment. According to Mark Tewksbury, director of residence dining operations, “campus dining centers serve 11,000 meals per day and our food is made fresh daily. Making sure that it is nutritious, delicious and safe for all students is a top priority.”
    Look for more colleges and universities to follow in the footsteps of Syracuse and others that have made safe, reliable food available for their students with food allergies or sensitivities.

    Celiac.com 05/17/2018 - Celiac disease is not one of the most deadly diseases out there, but it can put you through a lot of misery. Also known as coeliac, celiac disease is an inherited immune disorder. What happens is that your body’s immune system overreacts to gluten and damages the small intestine. People who suffer from the disease cannot digest gluten, a protein found in grain such as rye, barley, and wheat. 
    While it may not sound like a severe complication at first, coeliac can be unpleasant to deal with. What’s worse is it would lower your body’s capacity to absorb minerals and vitamins. Naturally, the condition would cause nutritional deficiencies. The key problem that diagnosing celiac is difficult and takes take longer than usual. Surprisingly, the condition has over 200 identified symptoms.
    More than three million people suffer from the coeliac disease in the United States alone. Even though diagnosis is complicated, there are symptoms that can help you identify the condition during the early stages to minimize the damage. 
    Here is how you can recognize the main symptoms of celiac disease:
    Diarrhea
    In various studies conducted over years, the most prominent symptom of celiac disease is chronic diarrhea.
    People suffering from the condition would experience loose watery stools that can last for up to four weeks after they stop taking gluten. Diarrhea can also be a symptom of food poisoning and other conditions, which is why it makes it difficult to diagnose coeliac. In certain cases, celiac disease can take up to four years to establish a sound diagnosis.
    Vomiting
    Another prominent symptom is vomiting.  
    When accompanied by diarrhea, vomiting can be a painful experience that would leave you exhausted. It also results in malnutrition and the patient experiences weight loss (not in a good way though). If you experience uncontrolled vomiting, report the matter to a physician to manage the condition.
    Bloating
    Since coeliac disease damages the small intestine, bloating is another common system. This is due to inflammation of the digestive tract. In a study with more than a 1,000 participants, almost 73% of the people reported bloating after ingesting gluten. 
    Bloating can be managed by eliminating gluten from the diet which is why a gluten-free diet is necessary for people suffering from celiac disease.
    Fatigue
    Constant feeling of tiredness and low energy levels is another common symptom associated with celiac disease. If you experience a lack of energy after in taking gluten, then you need to consult a physician to diagnose the condition. Now fatigue can also result from inefficient thyroid function, infections, and depression (a symptom of the coeliac disease). However, almost 51% of celiac patients suffer from fatigue in a study.
    Itchy Rash
    Now the chances of getting a rash after eating gluten are slim, but the symptom has been associated with celiac disease in the past. The condition can cause dermatitis herpetiformis, which causes a blistering skin rash that occurs around the buttocks, knees, and elbows. 
    A study found out that almost 17% of patients suffering from celiac disease might develop dermatitis herpetiformis due to lack of right treatment. Make sure you schedule an online appointment with your dermatologist or visit the nearest healthcare facility to prevent worsening of symptoms.
    Even with such common symptoms, diagnosing the condition is imperative for a quick recovery and to mitigate the long-term risks associated with celiac disease.

    Celiac.com 05/16/2018 - Galectins are a family of animal lectins marked by their affinity for N-acetyllactosamine-enriched glycoconjugates. Galectins control several immune cell processes and influence both innate and adaptive immune responses. A team of researchers recently set out to assess the role of galectins, particularly galectin-1 (Gal-1), in the treatment of celiac disease.
    The research team included Victoria Sundblad, Amado A. Quintar, Luciano G. Morosi, Sonia I. Niveloni, Ana Cabanne, Edgardo Smecuol, Eduardo Mauriño, Karina V. Mariño, Julio C. Bai, Cristina A. Maldonado, and Gabriel A. Rabinovich.
    The researchers examined the role of galectins in intestinal inflammation, particularly in Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and celiac disease patients, as well as in murine models resembling these inflammatory conditions. 
    Maintaining the fine balance between host immunity and tolerance promotes gut homeostasis, and helps to prevent inflammation. To gain insight into the role of Gal-1 in celiac patients, the team demonstrated an increase in Gal-1 expression following a gluten-free diet along with an increase in the frequency of Foxp3+ cells. 
    The resolution of the inflammatory response may promote the recovery process, leading to a reversal of gut damage and a regeneration of villi. Among other things, the team’s findings support the use of Gal-1 agonists to treat severe mucosal inflammation. In addition, Gal-1 may serve as a potential biomarker to follow the progression of celiac disease treatment.
    Gut inflammation may be governed by a coordinated network of galectins and their glycosylated ligands, triggering either anti-inflammatory or pro-inflammatory responses. That network may influence the interplay between intestinal epithelial cells and the highly specialized gut immune system in physiologic and pathologic settings.
    The team’s results demonstrate that the anti-inflammatory and tolerogenic response associated with gluten-free diet in celiac patients is matched by a substantial up-regulation of Gal-1. This suggests a major role of this lectin in favoring resolution of inflammation and restoration of mucosal homeostasis. 
    This data highlights the regulated expression of galectin-1 (Gal-1), a proto-type member of the galectin family, during intestinal inflammation in untreated and treated celiac patients. Further study of this area could lead to better understanding of the mechanisms behind celiac disease, and potentially to a treatment of the disease.

That's what lectins do naturally to animals the thwart being digested ...they disrupt our digestive tracts horribly..took me 20 plus yrs, I'm 46, to figure it out...GO TO A NUTRITIONIST..GMO LECTINS ARE WHAT MAKE WHEAT AND PEANUTS SOO ALLERGIC..IM SO FED UP AND DISGUSTED READING LOST PEOPLE MISGUIDED IVE NEVER POSTED ON ANY SITE BEFORE...currently I'm a dishwasher at a ruby Tuesday's..I used to be an aircraft mechanic for a major airline..my health and slowly went down hill.

One forum explained that a patient's Harvard educated G.I. specialist vaguely even heard of lectins. Thank you Monsanto and big pharma , also BT pesticide causes leaky gut too, it's designed to do same to catipillars too. I never believed it until my gut is now so sensitive my symptoms last for almost  a full seven day week.

Also look up psoriasis info caused by lectins too. i also simultaneously get uti symptoms ie bacteria from lectins, detox tea and fresh lemon flushes it out,... Soo all gluten free foods are using GMO ingredients corn starch, potato starch " modified food starch", etc etc so I can't and don't bother with shopping gluten free...read any and all Gluten Free labels..and compare non-GMO labels vs gluten free without GMO free label, most health and gluten-free bars are all soy, personally we're being scammed...this wont be posted I'm sure...why haven't I ever had a allergist explain this to me ..I'min the U.S., I've learned this from European, Australian, based nutrition sources online.
