Christine's Biography

Christine M. lives in Huntersville North Carolina, but she is from New York. She is a 44 year old late stage Lyme patient that has many of the classic symptoms of the disease. Prior to becoming ill, Christine was engaged to be married and worked in the Human Resource department of a Health Care Agency.

Some of the symptoms that plague Christine are swelling in her spine, head, legs and arms. She's has a burning sensation throughout her entire body, severe migraines and itchy skin. She feels a heaviness in her entire body making her body unable to move. She has nausea, muscles squeezing, nerves burning and severe heat intolerance above 65 degrees. Christine has stinging joint pain, cardiac issues and severe fatigue. Complications that have plagued her in addition to Lyme Disease are EBV virus, HHV6 virus, blood infections and Fibromyalgia. Christine also has Babesia.

Christine's treatment plan included IV Antibiotics for 4 1/2 months, but it had to be stopped due to complications with two kidney stones (one of which needed surgery), a gall stone (which is being left alone for now) and bad reactions to some of the antibiotics. She couldn't get into the Dr's office for her 2nd office visit per year. She's currently on the Byron White Protocol until she can see the Dr. again at the end of September.

As far as she knows, Christine doesn't have any family members with Lyme. Christine's specific prayer needs are mainly financial. Since her case is Late Stage and disability isn't enough to cover the cost of her LLMD. She appreciates any prayers on her behalf.

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!
