Hey guys, it’s Justine for this video. I wanted to share with you my experience with having lyme disease Which is when you’re bit by a tick because my experience. I just recently realized was so bizarre and It’s the sort of thing where you want to get it diagnosed early because then you can be completely cured Because it’s if it’s diagnosed later, and it’s one that doesn’t have a lot of obvious symptoms But the later it is diagnosed then the less chance of curing it completely So what happened is I was living in New Jersey a Few years ago And I would take my little dog sadie out to walk often and there was lots of woods and deer and things like that and granted we were never next to the deer but Apparently, they were there all the time and one day, I woke up and I found a tick in my bed which was number one disgusting but number two. Just freaked me out so I was like did I get bit while I was sleeping and I had no idea and I didn’t really think much of it because I never got it’s called the bullseye. Which is like a red Bullseye on your body that’s typically could be one of the symptoms, and I never got that so I really didn’t think about anything But for the next two weeks. I felt my main symptoms were I was really tired I had this stiff neck back here, and it was just [it] was very strange was very strange feeling and The main Symptom I had which was interesting is that any time I ate anything? I felt like it got stuck right here, so and my stomach would kind of hurt so I could eat You know a carrot or a cracker or you know something healthy, you know soup or something, but whenever whatever I ate It always hurt right here, so I actually couldn’t eat very much And it was very strange now the way that this the way things happen, and there’s always somebody upstairs looking out for you I believe I Had just started going to I I wanted to try out colonics for cleansing I know they’re kind of weird, but I found this place in New Jersey And I went in to check it out, and I asked the lady who owned the place. I said well how in the world Honestly do you get into this and she said well, what happened is Four years ago my family there was there’s four of them in her family and They were all Something was wrong with them they they kept going from doctor to doctor nobody could figure out what what the issue was? but they were just getting sicker and sicker and sicker and They’ve tested four [lions] and all these things because what can happen to is when you first test for it You can get a false negative which means you [really] have it, but it comes up negative But anyway So in her quest to try to cure her family because she was in another field before that she discovered that colonics helped Rid the body of the Toxins and and Through finally being diagnosed with it and changing their diet and doing all these [things] and adding the colonics she was able to cure her entire family of that so she attributed colonics to helping them cure each other so that That’s one like so that’s how you can do this because it’s a strange. I mean honestly it’s a strange business But so I had just seen her and found out that story and then I had this stiff neck thing and I found the tick And I happened to have an appointment scheduled with her and I went in and she’s like there’s something off with you It’s like really. I mean I didn’t know this woman from anything. I’d only met her [once] and she said well I know you’re in the health and [fitness] industry and your wellness person and you know you’re just there’s something off with you I’m like yeah, I don’t feel like myself. I’m tired my neck hurts. Just like my head hurts I’m just tight and weird and she said we’ll go get tested okay and granted after my reading I knew that Chances are the tests could come out Negative even if it was positive, so I was praying I’m like okay. God, if I do have it, please let it be positive so I show up at the doctor and I felt you know kind of weird because I didn’t have the red eye in the Bull’s eye and Describing my symptoms and the doctor you know half of them don’t pay any attention sheet for more than 30 seconds I’m like I just want this test. He’s like okay. Fine, so a few days later I’m literally driving to go to the airport to go to Miami for a vacation and I get a phone call It’s the doctor’s office and said we have your results I said Oh really what and she said well you tested positive for limes and I’m driving like uh-huh this is when you could be on the phone in New Jersey so don’t worry about that um and And I say okay so what’s the regimen and she said we have to go on antibiotics for 30 days and Me being a non medicine person unless it’s absolutely an emergency was sort of having a freakout [I] Said okay, well, I’m going to Miami right now Could we call in a prescription down there? So we did work it out? So I mean you can’t really when you’re on medicine You can’t drink so Miami without alcohol is an entirely new experience It’s so fun, but it’s not the same so I get to Miami and I go get my Prescription so the initial antibiotic is like the standard one that everybody’s prescribed and I called the colonic lady I said well, this is what they gave me. What do you think she’s like no? No, you don’t want that when you want this other one begins with the “D” So that’s the one that I took for 30 days now granted being a help person I knew that taking antibiotics Can really you know can cause yeast infections and can cause yeast overgrowth and and sugar and carbs cravings and all these things Because antibiotics kill all the Bacteria in your body Not just the good stuff it kills good and the bad I mean not just the bad stuff So I asked her about that as well, so what I did is I had to take the antibiotic three times a day So I would take the antibiotic and then a few hours later. I would take a super high dose of probiotics There’s this brand called Raw which I love it’s refrigerated. You can find it in any health food store, or vitamin shop or any of those it’s like 85 billion good Bacteria per serving, So take the antibiotic few hours later take the probiotic few hours later Take the Antibiotic and so on and so forth so I had six different things that I was doing during the course the day You don’t want to take him at the exact same time you just want to space them out, so Honest-to-goodness, 30 days of that, I did not get a single yeast infection I did notice there was probably a little bit used overgrowth just because I started to crave sugar and simple carbs at the very end of the 30 days, but for going that long and not having crazy cravings, that’s pretty darn good and What’s interesting too is when your body is fighting a disease like that It creates extra cortisol in the body which creates belly fat and a person can gain weight So I did put on a few pounds even though I was exercising even though I was eating right and doing all the things that I was supposed to do but that’s just because the body is fighting so hard to To heal itself and I finally found if you ever knew do you need a doctor There’s a specialist in New Jersey since what he specializes in he’s awesome. So after the end of the 30 days I went back to him and I had all these additional tests There’s like three or four different things they test for just to make sure that there’s nothing left in the body Because luckily again. I caught it within two weeks of being bit So I’m completely cured But he said that sometimes if a person especially if it’s undiagnosed for a while They could put on like a hundred pounds in just a few months because that’s how much stress the body’s under fighting this autoimmune disorder So I just thought that that would be helpful For somebody to know that number one you can be cured of it and number two if you’ve been Camping or in some sort of woodsy area or been around deer or hunting or whatever it is and you? Feel a little tired you feel off like just some things your your joints ache and you’re just not right You might want to get tested for it because you never know you just go to the regular doctor You ask for a western blot for Lyme, and then if it shows up negative And you’re still not feeling right, then you can go see a specialist all right?
