MSA and Lyme?!?

October 2, 2011 § 1 Comment

Throughout my incessant research, I have read countless articles and have watched too many documentaries to count. Seriously, Netflix can kinda foster a documentary addiction. Anyhow… All of this has caused me to believe that there probably is something to all of this holistic healing, nutritious stuff.

For this reason, we have decided to try and live a healthier lifestyle and eliminate as many toxins as possible from our lives. This means that we eat mostly organic food in order to avoid pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and preservatives. We have also switched to all natural household cleaners (which work quite well in fact), and hygiene items such as fluoride free toothpaste. Maybe I will work in exercise in there at some point… uhh, err…

In efforts to rid my body of as many toxins as possible, as previously posted here, I had my “silver” (mostly mercury) fillings removed. At the time, I was unaware of how important it is to have a dentist who specializes in amalgam filling removal. After watching a video online of how this procedure is supposed to be done, I am pretty sure that it was not. Because of this, in addition to the mercury vapors that the filling itself released on a daily bases, even more were released during the drilling and removal process. After I found this out, I was interested in having my metal levels tested to see if they were high.

I started searching for a medical professional that could provide heavy metal testing and chelation. This search process led me to a doctor of naturopathic medicine, Carol Loechinger. I went into the office for a consultation. After talking things over with Dr. Carol, she convinced me to do a Meridian Stress Assessment first. It can give me an overview of how my body is functioning (or not), including an idea of what my mercury levels are. Not knowing much about the test, I agreed. I didn’t completely hear the full explanation about the assessment and thought it was a blood test of some sort.

The test was completely took me by surprise as it was no where near a blood test. I’m sure I will get this wrong, but here it goes. The MSA analyzes the energy levels through  Meridian pathways in the body. Each Meridian pathway, often acupuncture points, corresponds to a different part of the body and gives an overview of the patients health.

As usual, when I realized that this wasn’t a blood test, I was skeptical. The assessment claimed many things, however here are a few of the highlights that I can remember. My left lymphatic system has issues of some sort but the right is fine and my nervous system is not quite up to par, no surprise there. My circulation is doing alright as well as my mercury levels. I have a parasite potentially in my gallbladder and and a strep virus that my body never successfully ridded itself of from middle school.

All of this is interesting and all, but here’s the kicker… It said I have Lyme Disease. While this might not sound like a huge deal to you, it is enormous, earth shattering news to us. Lyme has been called the “great imitator” and Lyme has been known to be misdiagnosed as MS before. In fact, the symptoms can be quite similar to one another.

When Dr. Carol first mentioned Lyme, I didn’t think much of it. I’ve had a Lyme test ran, by an actual blood test, and it came back negative. And with me being skeptical and all, it kind of went in one ear and out the other.  However, I mentioned in a previous post that I had a cold a few weeks ago… Well, when I was sick, only my left lymph node was swollen. Interesting… the has test gained some level of credibility. More digging will be a necessity!

§ One Response to MSA and Lyme?!?

    I have gone to a bioenergetics practitioner who does that type of testing since I was ten; I don’t usually double-check what she finds with bloodwork or other “normal” medical tests…however, last year I had been quite ill for some time, and that test said I had mono. A week later, I went to a “normal” doctor and had bloodwork done. I did, in fact, have mono. Because I’ve grown up with meridian testing, I don’t generally doubt what the practitioner finds, but I did think it was interesting that the blood test confirmed the meridian testing. 🙂

    As far as Lyme’s goes, there is a patch you can wear to re-organize your body’s energy to get rid of Lyme. It’s called the R1H2 patch. I’ve shown up with Lyme in a meridian test as well and have worn this patch. It looks like on their website that you can’t order it unless you’re a doctor, so probably Dr. Carol would have to order it for you if you wanted to check it out. Here’s their website; it’s kind of interesting: http://www.aurapatches.com

    Praying for you as you continue your health quest!
