You Have Lost Your Lyme Disease!

This will be my last post from Germany, and possibly my last post on the topic of photon therapy for awhile....


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.

Scott,

That is great news that you are freed from Lyme! I pray that the ensuing months would bring you continued health.

But speaking of your health, were you very symptomatic before you went to Germany to start with? How far do you think you have to go before you consider yourself "healed?"

That sorry of your undies in the airport was funny, BTW. It reminded me of when they confiscated one of my bags on my last return trip to Costa Rica and I had to stuff my clothes in a plastic bag and walk around with that little bag... (since they were mixed with some articles that needed to be taxed and therefore confiscated).

Hope you made it home okay and I wish you many blessings in your continued journey towards health!

Scott,
I have not had the pleasure of meeting you yet, but have been reading your blog since I was given the link back in Sept.
I am so so so so very thrilled to hear that you have booted the icky nasty lyme off the throne! Praise God for big miracles and much tenancity along with the wisdom and discoveries these dr.'s and reseachers are gaining. If there is hope for you, there is hope for all of us. :) (I am newly diagnosed)
And I'm so glad Connie recieved your good news too. My heart goes out to her and has been so blessed to recently (as in two nights ago) come across her video blog. I was wanting to ask her a question or two.
I actually came to your website Scott a few days ago, having no idea you had gone to Germany for the biophoton treatment that has you lyme free now.
I came to your website to email you some news that I thought would encourage you. It's about another Connie. She is on the lyme support group forums at mdjunction and is also after many years of suffering...LYME FREE.
She is a group leader, if you click on group leaders you can go to her page and read about her story. Well, she hasn't typed it all out yet, but wants to soon, to give other people hope. When she was finally diagnosed with lyme disease, she was so tired of the prescription drugs (from taking them for CFS and Fibermyalga) that she decided to fight this lyme (the real reason behind the other diseases, course you knew that)...she decided to do this naturally. She and several other people go to the same clinic in Atlanta. I'm sure with all the conferences you've been to, you've heard of it.
She did hyperbaric chamber treamtments,chiroprator and accupunture, never did get around to lymphatic massage but her dr. suggested it. Okay, I took a few sentences from one of her recent posts because this is what I wanted to show you! She had all the junk you had! She says...
2lobster, You are soooo right about all the people who have no clue they are suffering from Lyme. At least, we have the diagnosis and can look for 'cures.' As for me, I was one of those referred to a psychiatrist. I saw twelve doctors and had all kinds of tests, but the one test I never had was a Lyme test. Fortunately, I found a doctor who knew Lyme was in all fifty states and did the right tests and yes, I had Lyme and babesia, ehrlichia, bartonella, brucellosis, and hhv6. And I recovered from all that,too...I thank God every day for blessing me with the right doctors who brought me back to good health. I wish your son the best medical care possible. All Lymies (including those who don't know they have lyme) are in my prayers every night. Keep us posted of your son's progress, when you have time.
Sorry to have made this so long, not sure if it will even fit here.
But I did want you to know about Connie. Clayton another group leader on mdjunction is lyme free to, by going the natural route.
Many blessings and prayers for continued recovery and good health.
Juice sunflower sprouts! :)They don't taste as bad as wheat grass shots.

Scott, this is fascinating to me. How did you decide which doc to go to in Germany? How much does htis therapy cost?

Have you tested for the FSME back here in the U.S. and if so at which lab? Is this the German name for tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) virus? Have you found any resources, treatments, doctors that deal with FSME or TBE? Thanks.
