Hi Ticked Off,
I am SO sorry to hear of this, and I'm so sorry you were doubted for your REAL symptoms!
Look up "Wim Hoff Breathing Method," do some research on him and his teaching. There are some videos he has teaching you how to breath for maximum efficiency and aid illnesses by doing so. See if we can up your air intake that way, starting 1 time a day, working up to 2-3 times a day to prevent these seizures.
The antibiotics could definitely cause some herxing, but Lyme is also known to cause involuntary spasms. Unfortunately. only time will answer that question.
You could definitely help heal your body in many ways and relieve the symptoms your experiencing.
Babesia Treatment in Lyme Disease
In my experience, recovering from babesia, one of the Lyme disease co-infections, requires
+ combination herbal or prescription antibiotics and antimalarials,
+ steps to boost the immune system, and
+ supplements to decrease inflammation caused by chemicals called cytokines.
Boost the Immune System to Cure Babesia
It is critical for babesia recovery to take steps that boost the immune system. Boost the immune system following the first 10 steps in The Ross Lyme Support Protocol. These steps
+ correct sleep,
+ decrease inflammation cytokines, (taught through lifestyle, diet, exercise)
+ help the immune system adapt to stress, (this is taught)
+ correct hormone imbalances, (I can test for this, protocols are suggested)
+ provide essential micronutrients, and
+ remove yeast overgrowth in the intestines if present. (Protocols)
Talk to your Primary Care Physician about Antimalarials to to cure Babesia.
Babesia is a blood parasite like the parasite that causes malaria. To treat it, use combinations of antimicrobials that are also used to treat malaria. Generally treatments require four to five months. This length of time is required due to immunosuppression caused by Lyme. To cure babesia requires treating at least one month longer than the average length of time a red blood cell lives after it is made by the bone marrow in the center of bones. A red blood cell lives for around three months.
In general, if a treatment is working, the symptoms of babesia should start to improve in 1 to 2 months. If they do not start to improve, then change to a different regimen. It Could Be Bartonella or Babesia.
