the reason people don't get better from long term anitbiotics is one word:
symptoms of systemic yeast
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Leaky Gut Syndrome
Dramatic Mood Swings
White Coating on your Tongue
Itchy, Purple or Red Patches on the Skin
Skin & Scalp Problems
Male Lack Of Urinary Pressure
Chronic Prostate Difficulties
Vaginal Yeast Infection
Other Candida Albicans Symptoms
Bumping into Things
Muscle Pain (Lower Back & Neck)
Nail Fungus - Nails that are discolored, thickened and flaky
Racing Heart Spells
Sensation of Heat at Night
You feel 20 or 30 years older than you really are
You've been to many doctors who sent you home saying "it's all in your head"
The below was written by a patient from lymenet.org who still struggles with leaky gut.
need nystatin for mouth
diflucan or vfend systemic
you will herx very bad as the symptoms are the same as lyme.
should treat min 2 months if long term abx
lots of probiotics, live is best
no yeast,fungi(mushrooms) sugar, wheat, flour
might want to get acyclovir to prevent overgrowth
and recurrence of viruses ie, shingles, ebv cmv
i treated 3 months to get yeast symptoms under control.
NO ABX WHILE ON THESE OR YOUR WASTING YOUR MONEY.
it will not work if abx you are taking are causing continuous yeast production.
killing yeast is CRITICAL FOR GOING INTO REMISSION.
I DID NOT GO INTO REMISSION UNTIL I CLEARED UP YEAST. I FELT 100% BETTER IN 15 DAYS BUT CONTINUED FOR 3 MONTHS FOR TOTAL KILL.
must have liver enzymes done monthly.
they should stop the lyme treatment aka abx as soon as you feel reasonably sound. mentally,physically
yes ,you will feel a point where you think you might want to try to ween off the abx .
at that point stop the abx and go on the
yeast regime asap.
my research and recommendation that has worked for
many is my "yeast cocktail"
1 stop all axb
2 stop all white food, yeast ,sugar,fungi, beer
3 try to start a regime of exercise ,whatever,
even walking around house.
exercise in pure form produces endorphins and norepinephrine which act in our bodies to INCREASE PROTECTION AND IMMUNE RESPOONSE.
THIS IS WHY EXERCISE IS IMPORTANT TO REMISSION .
I dare not say recovery,since only people with acute lyme and quick treatment get better.
long term exposure without treatment ,you can only expect remission with some residual symptoms that will never get better.
my iq prior to lyme and co's was 176. yes i was smart at one time, now it is down to 128. a very large drop and some days i feel like its 75.
4] vfend or diflucan, vfend works better but is very very expensive, $1800 per month.
5 acylovir to prevent the overgrowth of herpes ,
cmv,shingles and other viruses.
6 meds should be taken even with a neg culture as
long term abx 2 months or more, you will almost always have systemic yeast.
you will not know its yeast because many symptoms are same as lyme.
chemical sensitivity has been linked to yeast but
not in every case.
7 lots and lots and lots of live probiotics.
even if you taken during abx treatment you still get systemic yeast, since abx kills everything
except yeast and viruses.
HOPE THIS HELPS ALL OF YOU AND IT IS A NECESSARY PART OF GETTING BETTER FROM ANY CHRONIC INFECTION INVOLVING ABX TREATMENT.
