Today was my final appointment with Dr. W. I was not expecting to be fully free of Lyme disease as I had only had 4 treatments. Most people have 5 treatments and then wait for 3 days and then are evaluated to see if they have been freed of the Borrelia. In my case, I could not stay long enough and so we were planning to do the 5th treatment and testing on the same day.
We started at 8am with the testing and after doing a number of tests on the Bicom, I was feeling pretty optimistic. I could tell that the tests were going well and after the last one, Dr. W. proclaimed "You have lost your Lyme disease. Super!". It felt quite remarkable to have someone tell you that you are now free of the thing that has made you a prisoner for over 12 years. It was a wonderful moment.
Of course, it is no secret that I still do not feel any significant physical changes. In fact, overall, I probably feel a little worse as the process of ridding the body of the Lyme disease is not an easy one. It feels like a strong herx at times. Photons combined with ozone is a powerful treatment, each that can make one feel quite toxic as the body processes everything it must.
I asked Dr. W. for some guidance on next steps for treatment now that the Borrelia is "lost". He tested a number of nosodes from the collection I had acquired while here in Germany. What we found was that "Candida Albicans" was the most signfiicant issue. A 9 on a 1-10 scale. This was my intuition as well. I think many of us are missing the fungal issues. This also correlated to what Dr. Bradford saw in the darkfield in a previous blog post - that the immune system was engulfing the Lyme but that fungus was a major issue.
He also found HHV-6 to be an important issue as well as FSME, a tick-borne virus commonly found in Germany. So, my next steps are to treat for these and other issues when I return home. I am to check for the Borrelia once monthly for three months and then retreat with photons if needed. Otherwise, the Borrelia has been resolved.
Whether or not "resolved" means that the infection is entirely erradicated from my body or just that my body now lives in harmony with it is unknown. It could be a combination of both an immune awakening and some newly formed contract between my body and the spirochetes. In any event, Dr. W. indicates that they Borrelia is no longer a factor that would be contributing to any ongoing health problems.
The photons themselves likely do not kill infections, but they may instead be powerful immune-modulators helping the immune system to mount an attack. Only time will tell, but this is the most amount of optimism I have felt about truly leaving this illness behind in some time. The ensuing months will be required to see if the physical condition improves now that there is no longer any energetic presence of the disease.
When Dr. W. gave me back my supplements (which he affectionately termed my Teddy Bear), I replaced them with an actual teddy bear that I left him to remember our journey together and to serve as a reminder of my thanks and gratitude for all that he has done. Dr. W. is a brilliant practitioner that has much to offer.
I think there will still need to be an evolution of his treatment to address Americans more specifically, but I am happy that I came and feel blessed to have crossed paths with Dr. W. in Germany.
So many people have written to me asking if they should come to Germany. The answer is that I don't know. I don't know where this will lead in the next several months. 3 weeks does not a full recovery make. It will take time. The protocol will likely evolve. It is not a miracle cure. It seems that most do not leave feeling much better in such a short time, but the question is how will they continue to recover now that the ringleader has been booted from the throne? Only time will tell, but for now, I smile with optimism.
