Lyme Disease is a growing epidemic, plaguing the lives of many people. Conventional approaches are clearly limited, and as a result, individuals affected are facing a very complex condition, largely on their own. While many alternative practitioners are out there, individuals with this syndrome, any many more that result in a myriad of similar chronic debilitating and inflammatory conditions, often find themselves feeling quite overwhelmed by the condition not to mention the number and dizzying array of opinions and recommendations on the subject. This is why we believe that support is as important in the process as the remedy. In fact, the latter is not easily achieved without the former.
This is where the Slow Medicine Approach to Lyme differs. We see it as a complex condition, deserving of special attention and understanding.
Robin’s personal challenges and the work Robin and Michael have done around her healing offer a perspective that provides the complementary integration of physical, emotional and spiritual recovery.
In sharing my personal healing story, beginning with the discovery that I had Lyme disease, including co-infections and heavy metal toxicity, I hope that you will be inspired to take your health into your own hands! Looking back now there were so many early symptoms and signs that I now know were related; such as aching bones, anxiety, forgetfulness, and fatigue. Initially, like so many, I thought these symptoms were triggered by something much simpler, for me it was becoming menopausal. Now it all makes perfect sense my body was clearly trying to inform me that something was seriously wrong.
At the time I was a counselor, helping other people make sense of their own lives. As part of my training I developed strong intuitive skills – ultimately, it occurred to me I needed my own sorting out.
This began a very important part of my journey.
As most people do when their body becomes symptomatic, they seek out a Doctor to help guide them back to good health. And that’s what I did. I went to a Doctor who told me all was well, except high markers for lupus. My Lyme test returned back negative. However, my symptoms worsened; heart palpitations, hypoglycemia, night sweats, plantar fasciitis, just to name a few. It was clear what was causing all of this. And, again I thought it was menopause.
Then something happened, on a work trip while I was relaxing by a pool in the sun, after a short swim I nearly collapsed. My husband was with me. He happens to be a holistic physician and had a blood presssure cuff and blood sugar monitor with him. My blood pressure was very low and my blood sugar was unmeasurable!
Clearly this was not ok, I had to do more.
My research and investigation led me to Dietrich Klinghardt at the Lyme Light Conference, in Morristown, New Jersey. In May 2018, the lights finally went on. Following the conference, I booked an appointment with one of Dr. Klinghardt’s proteges; Dr. Marc Schwartz. The approach he took was more sophisticated than any I had encountered previously. And it was entirely considerate of not only every symptom I experienced, but what my body and mind was dealing with in its entirety. He placed me on a very comprehensive protocol that included diet and lifestyle, (elements contributing to unnecessarily stimulating my sympathetic nervous system), and a combination of herbal remedies and supplements that slowly led me out of the hole I was in. Now, almost two years later, I can honestly say I am 95% better. As important, I know so much more about myself and the ways of healing. It was not easy and it took a considerable amount of patience and perseverance. I also needed tons of suppport.
