>>Keep those central park memories vivid in your mind ...
i'm tryin' JV - but when a herx hits its soooo bad - you really think you've set off a cycle of regression and that you're gonna die... awful.
>>Candida can't exist in a healthy body. Thats what the orthodox docs have been saying all along.
yup. but what is causing all of us in this generation to be immuno-suppressed? it was unheard of in our parent's day... merc? Borreliosis epidemic? both? general pollutants which weaken us all? soil depletion?
>>true, but its largely speculative
yes. it really is. its hard for me to give credence to it.
but i wanted to do a hair test just to see if i look particularly "mercury deranged" according to Cutler... and I confirmed with the lab that residents of New York State are NOT allowed to get hair tests! unbelievable!!! I have to drive to New Jersey and get a doc there to order it for me... unreal. in the good ol' freedom loving US of A too...

I take some. Magnesium always makes me feel worse - i don't know why...
I really really wish you all could have been there last night at the New York University presentation about Lyme... it was amazing the things they said - that its the most common vector-born illness - that its incurable - that its spreading like wildfire - and then to be in a room full of people that all had my same symptoms! all of 'em had insomnia, IBS, mysterious left-side spleen-pain, candida, it was wild! got to have a quick talk with Amy Tan, the author of the Joy Luck Club (she had Lyme) - and got to hear some researchers speak (if I ever recover, I am thinking of starting up some Lyme research in my lab... but I gotta feel better first!
you hang in there too - go slow with the chelation!
