I am finally getting on here for an update! I completed my first round of treatment, which was 6 weeks, and then went on my 2 week break. This kind of treatment is called "pulsing", I will write another post explaining what that is, and why some docs treat this way.
I was really looking forward to the break, I was herxing like crazy and so exhausted. I was really hoping the break would give me some relief and a nice break before the next round. Week 1 was amazing!!! I felt great, had energy, felt like I could keep up with life, was on a mission to get a bunch of things done around the house etc. I went a little crazy with my To Do list, it was just such a relief to feel so great after a rough 6 weeks. Week 2, not so much. I think part of it was me over doing it during week 1, and then also my body was crashing and it was clear I needed to go back on treatment. I still felt better then when I was on treatment, but not great. A lot of symptoms came back and tons of body pain. I was in a pretty ridiculous amount of pain yesterday. I over did it the day before having a fun family day fishing with the kids. I paid for it, that's for sure. But it was still nice to get out and be active and have fun.
Today I started back on treatments again. I did my morning infusion today and I have already felt it kick in. Which is both good and bad. Good, because its killing the bacteria and doing its job. Bad, because I feel like poo. I really need to be better about detoxing this month. The reason many people on treatment feel sick is because there is SO much die off happening so fast that the dead bacteria floating around in your body becomes toxic. A persons body cant rid it fast enough. Hence amping up detoxing 100%. So there ya go, I will be detoxing tonight....I promise!!
