Princess is herxing… or at least… WE are HOPING that is what is happening…. She is having some pretty uncomfortable symptoms.. Her vision is getting … well.. weird…
all while getting headaches… foggy hearing, AND feeling shaky..
so. JUST to be sure, and certain, that nothing else was happening with her health, ie.. ACTUAL problems with the health of her eyes, retina or any of THAT sort of thing.. I took her in to see a pediatric ophthalmologist today.
The appointment lasted 2 1/2 hours. The doctor was lovely. There were so many tests that they performed, it was very, VERY interesting. The conclusion. Wipe your brow in anticipation, I know I WAS…
~PHEW! All is ok wither her eyes.. They are healthy, and she has 20/20 vision! Retina’s attatched and everything else JUST as it ought to be.. with a mild smudge in her vision that the doctor felt was.. well.. probably just fatigue.
So… what is going on???
I’ll be calling Dr. Zhang to see if this is a “herxheimers” reaction.. or part of the “healing crisis”… so often referred to in the alternative health industry.. If he seems even the least bit concerned that this might NOT be a herx.. than… we’ll be off to see a Pediatric Neurologist.. (ick)
So for those of you who ARE wondering… HOW the “no antibiotic” approach is going….
We ARE feeling so much improvement on the new protocol. There is just such a long, long way to go. Thankfully the road looks a much shorter one now that we are doing Zhangs protocol, focusing more on our diets…. it’s just that it is DIFFERENT from what we have known.. that NOT everyone else in the Lyme community is doing this.. so it’s not so easy to just throw out a question to a friend…
LIKE>.. is your eyes freaking out .. a herbal herx??? (giggle) ah… the healing crisis…
Blessings to you, as you too seek out Healthy, HEALING paths.. May The GREAT Healer guide you and sustain you..
you are LOVED!
