I recently did ACT Therapy through Infusio at the beginning of March and have been really happy with my results. I was already 18 months post SVF Stem Cell Therapy and doing really well, except for a few minor issues that had not resolved.
Weight gain post stem cells has been a very humbling experience. I have never weighed more than 120lb in my life before Lyme Disease. I never thought I would gain so much weight with stem cell therapy.
Gluten free seems to have become such a popular diet trend lately, but it can really be a hard world to live in if you are avoiding gluten for your health. I have been gluten free for over 5 years now and somehow I still spend about 30% of my life glutened no matter how hard I try to avoid it.
Gluten is my nemesis. I feel like every time I eat, the world is a minefield and I am rolling the dice. I never know if I am going to lose a week of my life or feel good after I eat. People often ask me what happens when I get “glutened” and why does it happen so often, so here it is.
6 Months brought a big shift in how I felt. I didn’t think it would be possible to feel as good as I feel today. To be honest, I have days where I feel better than I did before I got Lyme, thanks to Stem Cells.
Living and healing from chronic illness can make it impossible to keep up with life sometimes. Fortunately, in our tech-centric days, there are a few things you can use to your advantage to make life easier.
Overall I don't really feel I am experiencing any Lyme Symptoms anymore. I don't feel sick. I have not had a "bad day" in over a month and I have not had to take breaks to rest in bed in the past few weeks either.
Week 13 was a bit up and down due to this relentless cold I had, but once it finally started to clear, I started feeling great again. I was really excited that my immune system was able to clear it on its own, which in the past was something that never happened.
Week 12 was bittersweet. I traveled to Portland to visit my family for Thanksgiving and that was great. I also got to see my 92 year old grandmother during the holiday. It was nice to be able to do some traveling and reconnect with my family now that I am feeling better. I am still allergic to Turkey so we made grass fed prime rib and it was amazing
I have been feeling so good! Something big shifted between week 9-10. Once I recovered from last weeks glutening I had a new sense of feeling great and clear. I can feel myself coming back to life. Yay Stem Cells!
You are bound to hear the phrase chicken or pasta on a long international flight. Unfortunately eating the food provided on an airplane is not an option for anyone on a restricted diet. I am plagued with having Celiac Disease as well as over 60 food allergies. Eating even at home can be a challenge, much less a long international flight.
I swear the Universe is challenging and testing me. I went into my 100 days thinking and hoping that these would be the most stress-free days of my life and they have been the total opposite. Each week has come with enormous external life stress and I am trying my best to manage.
It has been 10 weeks since I had Cavitation Surgery. A lot has happened in the past few weeks with the excitement of Stem Cells! I can finally say that I experienced some positive results from my Cavitation Surgery! Yay! The recovery was very, very difficult. It took me over a month before I started feeling back to where I was pre-surgery or better.
I can’t believe I am already 4 weeks into Stem Cells! It has been flying by. In week 4 I experienced a few dips, but I don’t believe the dips are due to the Stem Cells, I believe they have been due to stress.
I am officially at the 2 week mark post Stem Cells! I am definitely into the "crash weeks" of the 100 days. I had a really lazy day on Sunday and did not make it out of my PJs, though the overcast weather probably contributed to that. It felt good to have a day to just rest as I think I was still recovering from the travel home.
Well, I am officially into my 100 Day Stem Cell Recalibration period! A lot of people have been asking me if I feel better or if I am cured, and the short answer is NO, but don’t let that answer scare you! Stem Cells are not an overnight fix or cure for Lyme Disease. As with all Lyme Treatments, I am going to feel worse before I feel better. The Stem Cells also do not specifically treat or kill Lyme, so the answer may confuse people as to how they are going to help me.
