Dear friends,
A few weeks ago, after months of going to doctors and hospitals, I was diagnosed with late-stage Lyme Disease--either a relapse of a condition I believed I was treated for in 2009 or a brand-new infection (nature-lovers never learn!) I was hospitalized in Germany for several days in March(where I had been a guest professor) and then at Cedar Sinai in May and nobody could figure out what was wrong with me.After going on all sorts of medication regimens for the wrong diagnoses, a very specialized test revealed I have Lyme (these Lyme tests alone cost $2000). I have been mostly bedridden for the last months (though been fighting this) and things are rapidly advancing--I am now I am having extreme trouble with my digestive system (can't swallow solid foods properly) on top of other problems. I'm trying to afford the type of IV antibiotic therapy that this condition now warrants and to move to a city where I can be properly treated by an LLMD (the one recommended is $280 an hour). Right now, I am most worried about my old hospital costs--the bills are pouring in and the financial depts are not being sympathetic. I have nearly $20,000 of bills from ER visits and hospitalizations and alternative therapies and we've JUST begun to understand my diagnosis, meaning the costs won't end soon. As I've been unable to take full-time work--and unable to lean on my family to fund this--I would greatly appreciate if you and yours would consider donating and letting others know too. I desperately want to make it past this and get back to the swing of things--but I currently don't know how to afford recovery.

I have late stage Lyme also. I have found some answers that helps to reduce the effects of co-infections Lyme produces. I am sure what I am doing would help you also. There are no side effects and no problems with medications. They are safe. They did reduce greatly the effects of Lyme on me. I just need additional help with other types of products and therapies. I will share info with you all. Email me at jherbst@estreet.com
