Posey Beat Lyme Disease With Holistic Cure

PARKER POSEY is questioning conventional medicine after the pills she was prescribed failed to cure her of Lyme disease.
The Best In Show star was forced to pull out of an off-Broadway play earlier this year (09) to focus on battling the tick-borne illness.
Doctors put Posey on a course of antibiotics but when that failed to restore her health, she decided to try a holistic approach.
And she felt so much better after taking supplements and changing her diet that she's decided to lend her backing to new documentary, Rethinking Cancer, about patients who seek out alternative methods of treatment.
She says, "As someone who dealt with Lyme disease recently, I had the opportunity to approach it both with conventional medicine (antibiotics) and homoeopathic remedies and supplements. The first round of antibiotics did not destroy all the bacteria and I made a decision not to take them anymore and instead approach it purely holistically - through the help of my homoeopathic doctor, who guided me with my diet and gave me the natural supplements to bring my body back to its vitality.
"It raises the questions: How can a natural approach to healing oneself be considered so unconventional? Why do we think we can't play an active role in getting healthy? Why do we give ourselves away so easily to pharmaceuticals that deplete our system and confuse the natural healing process?"

I think she is absolutely on the right track. The natural way is not to interfere with body, but to help it fight. This is also best done by 'low breathing' right from childhood, and i betcha as the child goes through its life cycle, it will much more stronger than a child treated with chemicals. However this knowledge is understood by a few at later stage than earlier, resulting in creating diseased system. We know of a simple, short, safe and powerful way to use oxygen in air to clean the diseased system. This way of cleaning the body is also shared completely free. pls visit www.3srb.org.

The 'holistic' approach will help detox from the millions of spirochaete corpses in the blood after antibiotics kick in. Body becomes toxic with them, which is why, just after treatment, you feel worse than you did while infected if you don't cleanse. Conventional medicine skips that and just wishes you luck after treatment (if you are lucky enough to find a doc to treat you!)In Parker's case, I have a feeling the antibiotics worked, but one has to remember that (depending on how long the infection actually lasted), damage to nerves, joints, possibly heart, takes time to heal.THe malaise lasts quite a while after the antibiotic treatment ends so many people still feel 'infected' when they are not. These are bacterial parasites, not viruses. Their cell wall composition evades the human host immune system by 'hiding' from it - literally changing chemical composition when under attack but I have a feeling that is temporary and eventually they return to their normal state (to conserve energy) and are eventually destroyed by the antibiotics. Mental issues caused when bacteria pass blood-brain barrier (See Fallon et al studies), can enter spinal fluid etc., but the brain is plastic and memory etc should return (keep your brain active after antibiotics are done!)She will heal, but, again, length of healing depends on how long she had the infection and her own immune factors. With time and her good attitude and holistic adjuncts, after a year, year and a half she should be back to her old self. Trust me, it is a life-altering experience. But, like many other major infections, it can be overcome. It does NOT stay in your body after being bombarded with antibiotics unless you have a poor immune system. But, one may get arthritis soon afterward in joints if there is any in your family history and one inherited those genes. Especially the knees. 3 weeks of a good antibiotic should do it vs the old treatment of 4 weeks of IVs of Rocephin. (Amen to nobody treating with that anymore!).So take care Parker, and speedy back to your old self! Also, would love to see you on screen again soon! Somebody write a lead role for her please? She's one of the best!

The really sad fact here is that the MD who treated her had to follow the IDSA ( infectious disease society of america ) treatment guidelines and probably really thought that he had healed her. These guidelines are woefully inadequate to treat this disease. They have just been challanged after 20 years of causing misery on thousands of people. The IDSA still thinks they work. They really can not change thier mind now can they. The guidelines authors really need to serve prision time. Merlyn

We are almost at the end of the year where the panel of doctors will vote on the IDSA guidelines. In light of the new research that was presented to them, they have got to make changes to stop the suffering. I'm afraid that there are too many hands in the pot. Personally, we are financially tapped out due to my treatment. The way the current guidelines are set up, it has given my insurance company the power to not pay. We are in debt $80,000 from this devastating disease. If we did not have equity in our house and credit cards to pay for my treatment, I truly believe that I would have died. I was that bad. I got the run around by specialists for over a year who continued to misdiagnose me because my Lyme report read negative even though I had several positive and equivocal bands. They did not take into consideration or are unaware that the test is seriously flawed and misses 70% of the cases. I've been in treatment now for 1 1/2 years using aggressive antibiotics as well as naturopathic medicine. It was my Naturopathic Physican who is also an Internal Medicine doctor that finally properly diagnosed me. I owe my life to him. I still have a long way to go. It is unfortunate that if a Lyme literate doctor treats a patient with antibiotics longer than the 3 weeks that the IDSA guidelines allow, they are at risk of losing their license. 3 weeks of antibiotics did nothing for me. I only began to notice changes around 6 months of antibiotics and holistic medicine. Thankfully, I chose to get a PICC Line to administer heavy duty antibiotics and have had it for 7 months. It's amazing, I am almost back to normal. I'm weak due to being bed ridden, but I'm coming back. It really makes me mad how illiterate the majority of doctors are when it comes to this disease. Because of their arrogance, they think they know everything, and because of this people are debilitated with severe pain, exhaustion, an overwhelming feeling of being unwell, and their brains are mush. Their zest for life is gone. Can doctors be that desensitized? Anyway, I wish Parker Posey the best of luck. I hope that if she begins to not feel well in the future that she will put the two together since there really is "no cure" at this time for Lyme Disease.
