If you ask a Chronic Lyme's Patient to give ONE word that can explain how they feel, I guarantee you the word would be MESMERIZED! They are left 'stupefied' when told that after many tests being run, "We see nothing wrong with you." The Lyme Patient feels 'controlled' and as well as 'deadened' by the aches, pains, and nerve damage left with being handicapped on a daily basis.
You will see, in this blog and in the internet, thousands of testimonies of hurting individuals all who have seen specialists, undergone thousands of dollars of tests, and told they must have a psychological issue. I remember when our 'saga' began, the doctor prescribed nerve pills for my husband (who is the most 'laid-back-even-tempered' person I know). Basically telling him he was having some type of break down.  MESMERIZED!
Some days, patients find themselves seemingly grasping ahold of the pain, and trying to just move forward with their lives. Yet, what happens is that because there is so much pain; they get tired quickly. The more tired they become, the more frustrated they are not able to accomplish not only what they use to be able to do, but NEED to get done NOW. Mother's with young children who need them, fathers who are the main bread winner for their families and children, who miss school and cannot play like other children. This leaves them all mesmerized!
Understanding the emotional factor of Chronic Lyme's (with the co-diseases); is essential to be able to first; pray as well as be a support system for them. You see; the patient feels beat down, be-littled, forgotten, ignored and condescended...after facing doctor after doctor telling them there is nothing they can see why they are hurting.
Eventually, time goes by and they find they have aged quickly (as well as their care givers). That all of sudden there is nerve damage that cannot ever be fixed (due to the Lyme). They are being pushed in a wheel chair, not being able to accomplish some of the simplest of tasks. Still, the government turns their heads as well as insurance companies. MESMERIZED!
In our particular story, there are days like that! For sure, there are long nights and exhausting days. BUT...without God we could not go forward. By spending quality time with Him in the Word of God, Waiting in His Presence and truly worshipping at His feet; that is the fire that ignites continuous passion for life. Joy is instilled and HOPE that comes simply by KNOWING HIM!
We cast our cares on Him, for we have found He truly cares! If we decide to live MESMERIZED, then we live with great anger, hopelessness, loneliness, and frustration. We have decided NO MORE. Doing so, and living IN CHRIST, changing our out-look on life, thus continually retaining GREAT STRENGTH through it all!
May all fellow 'LYMIES' find that Jesus will be their injection of great joy, peace and strength! And you will no longer need to feel; 'MESMERIZED'!

 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. I Peter 5:7

Or so it seems....

Our 'BOAT-LOAD' of herbs and vitamins have come! More and more herbal remedies to introduce into our systems, as we are fighting the mean spirochetes that have invaded our bodies!

Brad is continuing the antibiotic regimen for now. When he tried to detox from them all his symptoms started to return. Do note, he has been on and off different regimen's now for 3 years.

His breath hunger was the first to go. The rest took over a year. He hasn't had a migraine (to the level 10 extent) in about 3 1/2 months.
Yet, his head does hurt often...just not to the highest degree. He is still quite weak, and has many aches and pains. He still fights insomnia; although the melatonin has helped some.
His leg pain is the worse it has ever been. He has seen several specialists and is taking a protocol for the babesia as well thinking this is a side affect of it. His heart pain comes and goes.
We still push him in a wheel chair, quite disheartening for him and his family. He has gotten calls for work, and it crushes his heart to say "no." He cannot stand for too long, although -- God gives him the strength to stand when he preaches.
Funds were raised to help start up a bunch of herbal remedies for the side affects of Lyme as well as hopefully dealing with it 'head-on'.
Bulk Herb Store and Vita Cost is where we got most of the products, but we also Ortho Molecular Products, Woodland Essence, North American Herb and Spice, and Ancient Minerals[Click links]

Our Lyme doctor sent us Ortho Biotic for the probiotic aspects of Brad's treatment (I take all the herbs and vitamins as well). It has 20 Billion CFU + 2 Billion more of the Saccharomyces.

A precious couple found an oregano regimen to help fight Lyme. Purchasing $198.00 worth of the Organol Juice & Oils.  It is POWERFUL!!! After just a week my husbands face joints were hurting, this is a herx reaction when something like an antibiotic or herb is piercing through. Our doctor said it also great for the liver too. North American Herb and Spice

Brad is taking the Teasel Root, Cryptolepis Root, Japanese Knotweed Root (all from Woodland Essence) as well as the Oil of Oreganol & OregRESP (oregano oil, cinnamon bark oil, cumin oil, wild sage oil) from North American Herb and Spice.  As tinctures, drinking them daily. [Pungent odor for sure!]

Magnesium chloride in Magnesium Flakes. I will be making magnesium oil spray:
Magnesium chloride flakes (1 cup)   +  Water, filtered or distilled (1 cup) ...
1) Boil filtered water    (2) Dissolve mag. flakes in the water  (3) Let cool  (4) Transfer to spray bottle. It eliminates aches and pains, adds magnesium to your body as the skin soaks it in.  Ancient Minerals

Since Shoshanna was 13, the Bulk Herb Store was started. She herself has become the researcher, and discovered remedies as well as read about them in great resources. Her young son and she discovered that they indeed have Lyme's. Thus, the Herban Lyme Away Tea.  It contains: "Naturally Caffeine Free & Organically Grown: Cat's Claw Bark, Cornsilk, Pau D'Arco Bark, Dandelion Leaf, Peppermint & Ginger. It's 1 TB.  to  (hot NOT boiled) 8 oz. water. Honey is good to add.

Other teas we purchased from the  Bulk Herb Store are:  [Click links]
Licorice Root: helps with hormone, adrenal glands, intestinal laxative, heart & circulation and inflammation. 1 ts. boiling 8 oz. water
Nettle Leaf: stimulate hair growth, blood purifier, kidneys, liver, "vitamin C and vitamin A, bio-available minerals, including calcium, silicon, and potassium chloride; protein, and dietary fiber."

From Researched Nutritionals : Artemisinin SOD:  immune support, "green tea extract to promote healthy levels of SOD (superoxide dismutase), curcumin and quercetin for their healthy impact on inflammation and resulting inhibitory affect on NF kappa B, and black walnut hull to arm the body's anti-parasitic arsenal." Take 1 X a day, it's $64.98 a bottle yet from our Lyme doc it was $15.00.

I will not include what feels like tons of vitamins and herbs we take by capsule. You see my husband's hand above holding his med.'s. As well as the kumbucha and fermented foods we eat.

We love sharing what we believe the Lord has led us to...passing the good news along. We hope it helps not just oursevelves but all who are in such pain fighting this terrible disease.

              May the Lord strengthen you, up-hold you and breath His Spirit    to refresh you.

As of August 2014

  I thought it would be a good idea to just plainly list the treatment plan our Lyme Lit. Doctor and our own research has taken us. Please note, Brad's disease is Chronic...he was bit over 30 years ago that just surfaced to full fledged war against his body the past almost 4 years. He had a knee surgery that turned into a blood clot --that had him hospitalized for almost 2 weeks. This pushed out the spirochetes that were laying dormant.
Pastor Brad Snowden preaching each Sunday.
Never complains, but suffers with great pain.

  His symptoms (in the order they came): *breath-hunger *weakness *joint pain* taste buds gone *insomnia  *hearing loss in 1 ear *weakness difficult walking *heart pain (like a heart attack) *Migraines (up to level 10 no med.'s can break them) *Numbness in limbs *Severe pain in legs (feels like a drill going down in his bones) *painful neuropathy in feet (and I am sure I forgot some). 

Treatment was aggressive at first, with even home health coming to administer his I.V. antibiotics. The breath hunger has subsided 85%. Migraines to about 80% as well. But, the pain he suffers has increased. Yeast is a battle in his gut as well with the antibiotics. 

Brad is a godly man, a Pastor, an awesome father and husband; who has a tremendous amount of 'DRIVE'...more than I could have. His fighter spirit, (which He gives God all the glory for) is sourced from spending times in the Presence of the Lord (daily).

  Lowering sugar content is vital, drinking tons of water. We purchase our water which is osmosis. 
  Eating yogurts, although all probiotics for Brad has to be taken in the evening for it will battle the antibiotics. 
  There are other things we have done and will do. We must admit there are TONS more we can do; but this cost $$$ is far more than what's in our budget. We would love to be able to do all that is written in books and web sites. Like most Lyme patients the finances are challenged due to lack of income (for not being able to work). Insurance most of the time does not cover these as well. 
 The best TREATMENT OF KEEPING OUR MINDS & HEARTS 'STAYED' ON THE LORD AND HIS WORD. This is a healing in every account. Without Him we could do nothing. 

  Hope this information helps our Lymie's that all around the world. So many suffer, and are searching for help. I pray this does help you and even encourage you to learn more of this awful disease.
