Miracle in Germantown
I have a patient with the a horrendous case of Lyme. Neuroborreliosis and all the trimmings. She has had every intensive therapy known. In addition to Lyme she tested positive for Babesia. I have sent her to two other expensive Lyme specialists whose names I will not mention. One doc said we needed to control her depression before he could begin treating her Lyme Disease Complex in earnest. She was on a long list of drugs. The list could fill up an entire page. He put her on the mood stabilizer Lamictal to help with mood swings. She became completely delirious and confused. I took her off this medicine as well as several others.She was the worst she had been in years. She couldn't afford to go back to this doctor. I started her back on Zithro and Mepron for Babesia. She became dehydrated with possible acute kidney failure. She was admitted to the hospital for two days of intravenous fluids. Her labs returned to normal. She then came into my office two days later. She was almost 100% better. Her cognitive dysfunction, fatigue, and pains had all disappeared. She had new found energy. My staff was shocked when she drove herself to my office today. She tells me a lot of people were praying for her. My theory is that the Lamictal killed Human Herpes Virus 6 and that she Herxed. When the Babesia was re-treated she was now able to respond to it. Her theory that it was because of divine intervention is just as valid as mine. Unbelievable.
