Lyme success Story with raw food

three years ago I came down with Bells Palsy.. living in a place where Lyme Disease is endemic and recollecting a tick bite several months prior made a self diagnosis pretty sure. I googled treatments and found none that I thought would help what I believed to be a somewhat advanced case (where the bacteria were attacking my nervous system). A quick visit to my optometrist helped a little with eye care. He tried to get me to see my doctor (who could not fit it in) or go to the hospital. I decided to self treat with rest and juicing and eating foods that I believed would build my immune system like greens and aloe vera.

The Bells Palsy subsided in a week.. I have some residual nerve effects (sometimes I squint and tear when I chew I also had other symtoms like numbness and tingling in my arms, and fatigue.. they passed.. but it took a year or two to really feel strong again.

The spirochetal bacteria that causes Lyme Disease is pretty nasty.. people who diagnose it early can get a simple antibiotic which is effective.

  1. I have had lyme disease for 10 years and I am now treating it with a regimen of raw vegetable juice twice a day(beets, carrots, garlic, ginger, lemon and raw greens) and taking homeopathic remedies as well as herbal detox teas. I now feel about 75% better. I have been doing this for almost 8 months now. My anxiety is lower and I sleep better as well. I have more energy and I can work steadily
