Candice's Biography

At the age of 20, Candice is from California. I discovered Candice and her Lyme story after she found my Living the Lyme Life blog. We became fast Lyme buddies and I learn more and more about her story every day. Please pray with us as we pray over Candice over the next few days.

Candice has been touched in the worst way by Chronic Lyme Disease. She also suffers from Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Crohn's & Celiac Disease, Costochondritis and Dysautonomia.

Candice has been sick since she was 16 years old. She has trouble absorbing the things she eats which causes her weight to drop drastically. At her lowest weight, she was 83 pounds. For a frame of 5 feet 7 inches, this is very tiny. She also has heart problems, which is possibly related to the Lyme or the drastic weight loss, where she has Bradycardia and Tachycardia when she stands.

Candice has chest pain, left arm pain, jaw pain along with shortness of breath. Candice's biggest prayer needs are that her body will absorb the nutrition she needs soon. She also needs her brain, heart and other suffering organs to get stronger soon. About a year ago, she had to take a respite from school in her first year of college. Now she can barely walk and is bedridden. She rarely leaves the house except to go see LLMD's. She's on the waiting list for another LLMD who might be able to help her and is seeing a new doctor on Monday.

All of this of course has caused emotional and financial strain on her family so prayer requests are that her family can remain strong through all of these concerns.

I am living my life. I've treated Lyme, Bartonella, Candida and Heavy Metal Poisoning. My symptoms were drastically improved after 2 years of treatment. I did well for a year or two and then started having a backslide in August of 2011. I've been seeing my doctor since March 1 2007. I have severe D defiency, but my Iron levels are now normal (after Iron infusions). I'm treating with oral antibiotics currently for Lyme, Bartonella and Babesia. I'm living life as full as I can with the skills that I have and the love I receive. My recent labs showed a very weak immune system and low Cortisol. So we're fighting to bring that back up. Some therapies I'm using are IV Vitamin C, HBOT treatments and herbal remedies plus yeast fighting medicines along with medicines to boost cortisol levels. I've not used the HBOT in a while, but I found it helpful. I'm on a load of oral antibiotics again because the herbal remedies alone were not effective enough. Living life as full as I can with the skills that I have and the love I receive!
