4 thoughts on “Links”
I received a link to your blog from my cousin Jacqueline in Montreal. My daughter is 32 and has been sick with Lyme for 4 years now. As you say, getting diagnosed and being treated in Canada is a joke. You are not taken seriously. The doctor wanted to put her on anti depressants to get her out of bed. She was diagnosed through igenix in the US and is followed by a naturopath here in Calgary. Alternative medicine is very expensive as you know.
I hear that you are finally better and traveling soon to Argentina. Congratulations on your admirable courage and steadfastness.
I plan to listen to your video blog and hear more about your journey. I have copied Marie-Eve on your link.
Thanks for your kind words and for reaching out. I’m sorry for what your daughter is going through, as you know I can definitely imagine how difficult it has been. It certainly must be nice to finally have answers, but it’s a real shame (shameful, really) that Canadians are left out to fend on their own to get diagnosis, treatment (so much for universal healthcare!) and lack the much needed support from the medical community. I am hoping things will change, slowly but surely, in the next few years.
It is quite true that I am feeling better, much better in fact. I did 6 months of antibiotics, which left me weak and sicker than ever (I think it put all the darn bacteria in hyperdrive and they weren’t actually getting out of my body), then started doing the herbal Cowden protocol, which was helping a little bit. What I found to be by far the most efficient therapy for me has been Bioresonance with a specialist in Montreal. Since I have done my treatments I have essentially come back “from the dead”, meaning that I no longer have to lie down all day long and be cared for, I feel alive for the first time in about 1.5 year and it’s quite an exciting time.
Please feel free to get my personal contact info from Jacqueline (she will have my husband’s) and I will gladly tell you more or speak with Marie-Eve directly (if she is capable of it at the moment). On peut se parler français aussi. 🙂
All the best of luck and I wish you and your daughter patience, strength, courage, and of course, healing.
