I used to feel like Sigourney Weaver in the movie ‘Alien’… watching my skin move as something crawled underneath… there were internal biting sensations as well as itching inside the body everywhere… I would feel my heartbeat in my neck, head, abdomen and pelvis… and you could see the large pulsing of my abdominal aorta. The butterfly fluttering sensations inside the heart muscle were nerve wracking and soon spread out to other areas as internal vibration sensations. And the night sweats were drenching, waking up to soaked hair and sheets. These were but a sampling of my numerous symptoms prior to my treatment with Bee Venom Therapy for the Lyme disease and coinfections that were invading my body!
Now, 15 months later…I feel 85% improved. I have mild internal butterfly vibrations, or mild shooting pains in the feet (from the coinfection Bartonella). I have mild fatigue and some muscles weakness. I feel like I am getting my life back. And I owe this to the bees…the venom has been healing me.
I’ve been exercising to regain my strength again! A combination of bikram hot yoga, Zumba classes, and elliptical machine at the gym. Also, a lot of gardening and walks by the bay. I am working more hours now, getting back up to speed, and taking on the task of moving my work office space. I am able to travel frequently to see my ailing father. I am reclaiming my life.
I still have another 15 months of bee venom therapy to ensure that all the bacteria are gone from my body. But seeing so much progress in the first 15 months is very encouraging that it will happen. And maybe the venom will also heal a separate autoimmune issue I have, and help my recovery from a blood clot that had lodged in my face. Thank you to my blessed honey bee healers…. Sting on my fellow Lyme warrior friends and bee encouraged! ♥
