Stress is a key factor in
causing you to have a Lyme relapse which I learned the hard way. I
am self employed and I always have lots of stress so I always had
some symptoms happening. I did TOA Free Catís Claw, Colloidal
Silver, Olive Leaf Extract, Beta Glugans, Teasel, Blue Vervain,
along with many others. I did cleanses, flushes, tonicís, tons of
vitamins and minerals. I juiced and juiced and juiced.
Yet, in Jan of 2005 when I was experiencing lots of stress in my
life I found myself in another major relapse with Lyme disease and
back on antibiotics...again.
I noticed my legs were loosing all of their strength and my mind
was getting worse. The depression returned and it was affecting my
ability to work, thus greatly affecting my income. I was facing the
loss of everything I had worked so hard to obtain. I was afraid I
was going to end up in a wheel chair or completely loose my ability
to function mentally. I remember bargaining with God and saying, ďIf
something has to happen to me then let it be a wheelchair, but
please let me keep my mindĒ.
I have always been an independent person. I have worked for myself
most of my adult life. I have been single most of my adult life. As
you can see I am an independent person. Becoming disabled was
frightening. So for me to say give me the wheel chair was a major
statement for me.
I was desperate. I did not
want to live the rest of my life on antibiotics. Everything I read
or heard regarding Lyme Disease was pretty hopeless. According to
everything I could find this was my Ďnew realityĒ. I was sinking
further and further into depression.
Then someone I met suggested I try this new product they knew about
made from brown seaweed.
I was VERY skeptical to say the least. I was even slightly irritated
at the hope of one more thing that everyone said would work because
I felt, ďIíve been through this before and it never works.Ē Needless
to say my attitude was negative giving this juice a try. But I said
I would give it 90 days and so for 90 days I would take it.
I took it for the first month. Nothing. The second month. Nothing. I
continued to drink it everyday as I said I would. But I was ready to
cancel my auto shipment of this stuff cause it wasnít working and I
couldnít afford it!!
I was close to the end of my third month when to my surprise whamÖ.I
I can still remember that day Oct 29th 2006. Driving back from KC, I
could feel my life coming back.
I mean I felt it!
It was like my brain was in a sardine can and someone rolled the top
back and the fog was gone and out popped my brain. The heavy dark
cloud that was on top of me had lifted. The depression was gone. It
is awesome to be able to multi -task again. The chronic pain was
gone! My legs didnít feel heavy any longer. My energy level was
I feel Iíve gotten me back! I didnít think that it was possible
because I had lost hope. I felt my new normal was living with this
chronic disease everyday never knowing if I would feel well enough
to do anything productive that day. Thatís all changed thanks to
drinking this brown seaweed? I have hope again. I have a life again!

But would it last?
That was my biggest concern. Would it last? I had spent a
considerable amount of time researching Lyme Disease and I knew what
I was dealing with. As I write this it has been close to a year
since I wrote the information above and I can tell you I am still
doing well. I do have my rough days where I don't feel great. But I
think I turned some kind of corner when my body started getting
something it needed on a regular basis.
It is now December of 2009 and I feel great! Yes, I said it. I feel
great! am I cured? I wouldn't say that. I have bad days from time to
time, but then again so does everyone else. I know when I don't take
fucoidan everyday I start to feel lymie again within a couple of
months. I'm glad it taste good, like a dark berry juice.
I have had others with Lyme Disease take a juice with fucoidan and
they did well also, but I have also had others with Lyme not notice
Could it be that as a result of years and years of taking herbs and
alternative remedies before I started drinking fucoidan made the
difference for me? Is that why I had such a dramatic health
improvement. Was it the combination of everything?
What was the difference?
