THROUGH CHALLENGE and Lyme Disease

Starving Lyme.

   Recently I had an interesting and informative conversation with a couple of readers. I asked for permission to publish this on my blog.

David R Thomas · LYME DISEASE ADVOCATE at David R Thomas
Basically as an advanced/ late stage Lyme sufferer. The Lyme community is learning and trying different things. When I was diagnosed and test +, I started antibiotics and continued for 7 years until new approaches were introduced to me. I started starving the Lyme from my body about a year ago a now I am trying to build the auto-immune system which in turn is helping my nervous system. I think this story has a lot of promise and perhaps is the best thing going right now outside of natural fresh foods.

  • David R Thomas ·  Thanks Mr. Arata
  • HI David, you said you started starving the lyme, how, diet? I also am late stage as you are and anitbiotics do not seem to be helping much anymore. Thx!
  • Gail Guarisco-Paolucci · HI David, you said you started starving the lyme, how, diet? I also am late stage as you are and anitbiotics do not seem to be helping much anymore. Thx!

  • Gail Guarisco-Paolucci == Hello Gail, Yes I wrote an article on this in my blog at www.throughchallenge.com about diet and antibiotics. Also how over the years we have cluttered our auto-immune system with additives that the antibiotics seem to have found a way to take advantage of it. But onto the diet: Yes there are different diets being used out there. But the one I am using come directly from my LLMD. That requires me to stay away from SUGARS, YEASTS, PEANUTS and PEANUT BUTTER. You can also find a lot of this info at Ahope4lyme.org and The National Lyme disease assoc. You can replace peanut butter with some very good tree nut butters out there. Tree nuts are considered OK. It seems as I understand it, when ground nuts such as peanuts are digested. The digestive process creates a chemical that promotes the survival of the Lyme bacteria. As does the fermented product that carry yeast or use yeast in there production. Now there are diets that I have talked with sufferers about that they feel helps them. Called Paleo diet (Gluten free) is how I remember that one. The important thing is to cleanse and detoxify our system so that the antibiotics have a chance to do there job. Detoxification is a very good word for preparing your auto-immune system for antibiotics or not. Remember to also replace your bacteria with PROBIOTICS WITH 40 to 100 BILLION COUNT BACTERIA. Remember a healthy gut is the start of a healthy autoimmune system. Your body needs to shed the bacteria promoters that have been pushed our way as fillers, additives, and medications for the past 60+ years. Don't forget those Probiotics which are very important in replacing the bacteria that the antibiotics kill off.

  • David R Thomas very nice description David. What you are describing is my approach to Chronic Lyme. That can be summed up as, don't underestimate the body. The human body is a miraculous machine. When operating optimally it is able to overcome most any threat. Mobilizing the bodies resources enhance the effectiveness and mitigate the toxicity of any antimicrobial that would be potentially administered. The difficulty with this approach is it is an active one. It takes an involved effort by the individual beyond the passive nature of receiving antimicrobials. TVAM, by relieving fatigue, facilitates ones ability to become an active participant.
