My system is struggling with multiple pathogens a very suppressed immune system, apparently, it is a miracle I have been functioning reasonably well. The fact that I am reasonably well has confirmed just how effective many of the things I do as a regular part of my health program have been working. I am so grateful that something in me decided to do the test, if not it is almost certain that within months or a few years my health would have crashed in the way that many other people with chronic lyme do. I’m lucky, I get to start treatment while my system is robust enough to cope. I have met and heard from many people that get the Lyme/co-infection at such a late stage that treatment itself is a risk. They are so ill with their detox pathways so compromised that treatment can have drastic side effects or be painfully slow or simply ineffective. Others have to resort to spending thousands of pounds to seek private treatment in the USA or German clinics.
I have had a long-term passion for health and healing, qualifying in Acupuncture in 1999. I spent 15 years training in the traditional Chinese martial arts of Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Kung Fu of Lishi system, I am also an accredited Journey practitioner and Transformational Breathing facilitator. The study of nutrition and the use of supplements has also been very important to me. Of course my health has always been one of my priorities and I always believed myself to be very healthy, not surprising considering the amount of time and money I have spent on myself over the years. However for about the last 6 years I started to feel more tired but I put it all down to having 2 young children and 2 businesses to look after (which of course it partly was!), so just normal really.
In the last 18 months, I have been lucky enough to attend quite few Lyme disease conferences in Europe to promote some products I manage and as a practitioner. The information about Lyme was very striking and I spent a fair bit of time reading books, blogs, webinars and looking to many other resources. Having heard over and over again from the likes of Dr Dietrich Klinghardt, Dr Jemsek, Dr Horowitz and others, that Lyme disease and its co-infections are a pandemic, I finally decided to test myself with Armin Labs. Even though cognitively I knew it may be possible that I had Lyme, I was shocked to to see the results. My CD57 was 21 and CD3 892, both very low showing my immune system has been significantly suppressed and I have positive tests for Borrelia, Ehrlichia, Coxsackie Virus, Herpes simplex 1 virus, Cytomegalovirus, Chlamydia Pneumonia!
