Hello, My name is Morgan. About two years ago I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease after about six months of trying to diagnose an issue with my leg and difficulty walking. I was so grateful to finally have a diagnosis and begin antibiotics so that I could walk again without pain and assistance. I took it upon myself to study Lyme and learn as much as I could to aid my healing.
I was surprised to learn that antibiotics often do not take care of the infection if it is not found immediately and that other, more natural and holistic, methods are necessary to be healthy again. I was then shocked and horrified to learn that effective treatment was not covered by medical insurance. After another year of battling this disease I am happy to say that I am hopeful for remission. It will take another year or so of treatment to be healthy again.
I was fortunate to have some retirement savings I could cash in and I qualified for a small loan to help pay for the treatment. I have spent nearly $15,000 on this process. However, I am unable to keep up with living and medical expenses now even with being able to work full time again. My holistic doctor is gracious and patient with me in obtaining medications and treatments, but I cannot expect him to go without payment. The natural protocols are expensive and generally supplied through my doctor by the companies Standard Process/Medi Herb, Beyond Balance, Energetix Corp., Bio-Botanical and DesBio Laboratories. I include this information for verification purposes. Also included in images are listings for the medications I need monthly and quarterly blood testing to maintain proper dosing and track progress. I can provide more information in certain circumstances.
This is a horrible disease that robs a person of their ability to function in daily life. Symptoms are so varied that it is often difficult to explain to others what is going on and leads others to distrust what you say. Lyme leaves you feeling isolated, scared, and fearing for your sanity. The doctor who treats me suffered Lyme several years ago and was able to learn through his own treatment how to help others, leading him to be certified holistically. The CDC does not recognize any treatment beyond antibiotics despite study and proof to the contrary and the many natural treatments that are working for the thousands of those who suffer. Since the disease is not recognized, insurance will not cover treatment and many are left financially ruined while trying to survive. If you can find it in your heart to help me it would be greatly appreciated. I just want to feel better and return to being a functioning member of society.
Thank you and bless,
