I had a hard time writing this; the diagnosis parts. I believe diagnosis can lead us to believe something about ourselves that impede progress in healing, and yet I know it can also be important in the formulation of your “plan of action”. I am writing it out because I hope it will help others in their pursuit of wellness.
Lyme Disease– It took years to get the diagnosis… and years to heal. Because my initial symptoms were more “gut related”, it was hard to diagnose. Once I did get the diagnosis, it was considered chronic. SO many systems were compromised.
Healing wasn’t quick or painless. It was a PROCESS. I used the Rife machine weekly. I highly recommend this book, “The Top 10 Lyme Disease Treatments: Defeat Lyme Disease with the Best of Conventional and Alternative Medicine” by Bryan Rosner. It will fill you in on why I made that decision.
My Hashimoto Thyroid and Hormone Protocol- (menopause is a doozy, right?!)
In addition to levothyroxin(T4), nature thyroid (T3) and bio-identical hormone cream (est, prog test) that my doctor has me take, I use the following from Young Living:
Thyromin– $43.00 I take 2 capsules in the evening
Thyromin™ is a special blend of porcine glandular extracts, herbs, amino acids, minerals, and therapeutic-grade essential oils in a perfectly balanced formula that maximizes nutritional support for healthy thyroid function.* The thyroid gland regulates body metabolism, energy, and body temperature. This blend includes the essential oils that support the thyroid.
I believe my thyroid is waking up. I have energy at 50 like I had at 20! I can’t wait for my next lab results!
Endoflex– $12.75 I put two drops on my throat daily (mid day) and one drop on my tongue.
This is the blend formulated for the endocrine system, (which I believe de-stresses the thyroid). EndoFlex Vitality essential oil uses a base of sesame seed oil . In addition to the popular Spearmint Vitality essential oil, EndoFlex Vitality oil features Sage, Geranium, Myrtle, Nutmeg, and German Chamomile to create a unique blend that supports the endocrine system.
Progessence Plus -$38.50 I Apply 2 drops 2 times daily on neck area. I was maxed out in the amount of progesterone that could be compounded in my bio identical hormone cream. The addition of progessence plus brought my numbers into the right range!!!
Key ingredients:USP-grade progesterone (wild yam), Copaiba essential oil, Sacred Frankincense essential oil, Cedarwood essential oil, Bergamot essential oil, Peppermint essential oil, and Clove essential oil
Lemongrass– $6.25 I take 1-2 drops in water. (It is a tad bitter). Supports digestive system, has cleansing properties, helps to maintains a healthy circulatory system and encourages a healthy metabolism
Life 9 (probiotic) $29.50 –I take 1 a day. Life 9™ is a proprietary, high-potency probiotic that combines 17 billion live cultures from 9 beneficial bacteria strains that promotes healthy digestion, supports gut health, and helps maintain normal intestinal function for overall support of a healthy immune system.*
Rose oil– I put one minuscule “drop” on my heart daily. My bottle has lasted 6 months. It is the highest frequency oil. I immediately get an energy, mood boost!
Allerzyme (enzymes) $35.75- enzymes aid digestion. For the relief of symptoms such as fullness, pressure, bloating, gas, pain, and/or minor cramping that may occur after eating, this is a product to have on hand. I take 1 every evening.
Sulfurzyme– I’m adding this product into my routine.
You can do a $45 membership option (to get the wholesale prices) and add on the supplements you desire. I love the premium starter kit to get a diffuser and 11 oils (most common entrance for an account) , but if you are focused on this particular health issue, this is an option.
To set up your Young Living account:
Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MACS) is tricky. I have met many other people who have had Lyme that also deal with this. It makes me think there is a definite connection. The short story is that our immune system can “go off” and react to ANYTHING. Fragrances, foods, exertion, …the list is actually limitless. When in a flair-up, you will find me with my broccoli and oatmeal (those foods work for me). I will also take quercetin, extra vit c, black seed cumin oil, Restore (lignites).
I always take extra B12, D3 & Magnesium . My body needs more of both.
I hope this helps you formulate your plan. You are worth the effort. Hope is a worthy pursuit. Your health can improve.
Believing with you!
