In last month’s blog, The Complexities of Lyme Disease and Co-Infections, I discussed common symptoms and misconceptions surrounding Lyme Disease and the co-infections it often carries with it.
When we find Lyme (or whatever their issue) with our testing, it confirms what they have been dealing with and gives them something to go to work on so that they can take action and responsibility for their health in a way that they never felt empowered to do before.
Today, I’m here to share a real life example of a client who tested for Lyme in the body via muscle testing with us, then went to their clinic and received a confirmed diagnosis of Lyme via bloodwork.
How common is lyme disease?
According to the CDC, approximately 30,000 cases of Lyme disease are reported to CDC by state health departments each year. Recent estimates suggest approximately 476,000 people may get Lyme Disease each year in the United States.
I see the Lyme energy vial test as present in about 75 percent of everyone we muscle test in our office, partly because of where we live — in the Upper Midwest it is far more common than in other areas. If undetected, it can become quite a problem for people.
Case study: Libby
In February of 2019 she came in for an Initial Visit while she was pregnant with her second child, listing these as her top concerns (rated on a scale from 1-10; best to worst):
#1 Low energy (5)
#2 Difficulty sleeping (5)
#3 Irritability (5)
#4 heart is beating fast sometimes (3)
After her Initial Visit, my main recommendation (outside of supplementation) was a reduction of grain consumption to turn down the inflammatory response. For her, it was to reduce to 3 or less servings of grains per day and to switch out coconut sugar for every time she wanted to use white or brown sugar.
Within 6 months, she noticed these differences in her original symptoms (rated on a scale of 1-10; best to worst):
#1 Low Energy (decreased from 5 to 2)
#2 Difficulty sleeping (decreased from 5 to 3)
#3 Irritability (decreased from 5 to 1)
#5 heart is beating fast sometimes (decreased from 3 to 0)
But, she did come with new concerns noted 6 months into her program. She stated, “Now that I’m paying more attention to what I’m doing and how I’m feeling, I notice a lot more. I have seasonal allergies, sometimes feel lightheaded, have an excessive appetite, my ears have been hurting, and I have shooting pain in one of my knees 1-2x/day.” When I asked her to rate 2 of these symptoms on the same scale we used previously, she rated seasonal allergies at 7 out of 10 and feeling lightheaded at a 3 out of 10.
By this time, along with environmental chemicals coming up for her in her testing, I was seeing a bacteria and virus. She was now keeping her grain consumption to 2 servings or less per day and was taking EIGHTEEN supplements per day to manage her symptoms. When one thing got better, another popped up.
She was making changes to her household, working to make substitutions and shifts to cooking, cleaning, and using their family sauna. Even with these changes she noticed increased itching and allergies. With a new baby keeping her up at night, she was now presenting with redness/flushed cheeks and postnasal drip.
Two years into her program, we began using CellCore testing kits and products. These vials indicated the bacteria she had been dealing with was the energy of Lyme. She also began testing for mold and parasites. Moving her care to CellCore products reduced her supplement load from 18 to 12 supplements per day.
Before using the CellCore testing kits, we could literally see the mitochondrial dysfunction and her body was so fatigued. But we weren’t getting these answers with our other muscle testing vials.
Not long after her taking all of this in, I received the following message from her:
“I had a physical last week and they tested me for Lyme Disease, sure enough, it came back positive! It feels so good to have validation! If it weren’t for you, I never would have thought I had Lyme. So, thank you!”
My Healthy Beginning is now offering labs through Vibrant America in the form of urine, saliva, stool, finger prick, and blood draws. Some tests can be done in the comfort of your home, and the blood draw would be done in a lab by a phlebotomist (the closest lab to us is in Plymouth). Some of our clients find comfort or confidence in seeing their muscle testing line up with labs. In other cases, the labs help us dig deeper into the layers of their health. If you’re interested in learning more about how labs could correlate with your program, contact us or ask in your next appointment.
