Debbie's Biography

Our next featured Lymie is Debbie from Arizona. In 2000, this 45 year old woman was bedridden ill. The doctors found many illnesses which included Valley Fever, Toxoplasmosis, E Histolyitica, H Pylori, Candida, Epstein Barr, Herpes 1 2 7 8. It took Deb four years to find a Vector Borne Illness doctor that discovered her Lyme, Bartonella and Babesia.

In 2004, she began Antibiotic Treatment. Deb made slow (very slow) progress through 2007 when she was able to get out of bed for up to 10 hours. She even started to swim in her residential pool or walk daily. It was nice progress, but she was still too sick to work.

However in 2008, Deb got a very severe strain of the flu and relapsed reactivating infections. She had to start all over again. She is currently having a tougher time than ever. Deb has needed to be more aggressive by doing IV antibiotics and recently began going to an intensive Integrative Clinic.

By approaching her treatment using alternative & conventional therapies, she is being hit hard with symptoms. She's having trouble finding an LLMD who do full Lyme protocols and support IV medications. If anyone in or near Arizona knows of a doctor who do use IV antibiotics, please comment so that Deb can connect with you.

Deb has many symptoms. The things that bother her the most are being in severe pain, having severe fatigue, cognitive dysfunction, memory loss, concentration problems, blurry vision, insomnia, stiffness, joint pain, nausea, urination problems, constipation, and sensitivity to light and noise.

Deb has taken all of her resources and risked a lot to be able to pay for intensive treatment including selling her car and taking out an equity mortgage. She may wind up having to live with family or move if the treatment doesn't push her forward enough to take care of her home or be able to work to obtain income.

Please pray for Deb to receive strength to get through this time and healing energy will be sent her way. Please send positive thoughts, love, encouragement and healing thoughts in Deb's direction by leaving comments for her to read. Please pray for her.

She says "God Bless."

  5. Hi Deb,

    I am 24 years old and I live in Canada and my parents recentely bought a house in Mesa, AZ. I was diagnosed with Lyme about 2 months after they purchased it. After we realized that lyme could not be properly diagnosed and treated in Canada we knew we had to go to the States. Coincedentally, we found a LLMD 9 minutes away from our house who does conventional meds (IV therapy, oral antibiotics) as well as alternative/natural treatments such as saunas, foot detox, lymph drainage etc. I was there for 3 months and i cant say I had any improvement with this drs protocol and we spent a tremendous amount of money (as we dont have insurance being canadians). However, i have talked to people who have had success so i guess it really depends on the person and if you are willing and have the funds to go this route. After i got back from AZ i still continued the drs protocol but still had no improvement and got beaten up pretty bad by all the antibiotics. I then discontinued this protocol as i felt there was little support by the dr after i left and still no change in my symptoms. I am currently not on antibitoics and am working with a naturopath from new jersey who has lyme as well as her whole family. So i hope this is my time to heal. I just wanted to share this with you b/c i no you were looking for a lyme literate doc in AZ. Unfortunately, I didnt have success but you may want to try it. If you have any questions my email is daynalwoods@hotmail.com. I wish you all the best as this is truely a nightmare, but there is hope!

My photo
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!
