Celeste: Lyme Disease
Cannabis put my Lyme symptoms into remission.
I had been hiking in the mountains six miles a day before I got sick. Six months after the tick bite, I was flat on my back. I had soreness in one joint one day, and soreness in another joint days later. This is because the spirochetes (the bacteria from Lyme tick) migrate. I couldn’t function. I couldn’t walk. I felt like I was pulling a truck. My ears were ringing and I had a sore throat that wouldn’t go away. I felt like I was turning to stone.
I was originally misdiagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.
So, for three and a half years, I was treated with chemotherapy. The chemo destroyed my blood. One spirochete turns into 6 million spirochetes in one year. My body swelled, my blood pressure went through the roof. I was near death.
A friend brought me some Rick Simpson Oil (RSO). I’ve been smoking cannabis for thirty years, so he suggested I give this a try. This was three years ago. RSO caused a Herxheimer reaction after three months (This reaction is needed to clear bacteria from the blood – results in fatigue, brain fog, muscle and nerve pain, chills). It also completely cleared my liver function to normal.
I have to tell you, my doctor wanted me to quit cannaibs or she wouldn’t treat me any longer. I was in a Lyme remission, and I didn’t want to stop working with her. So, I quit which caused a full relapse of Lyme symptoms. It caused seizures too. So I went back on the cannabis. My symptoms subsided again. And now my doctor has me talk to other Lyme patients about marijuana!
Cannabis kicks Lyme to the curb. It’s one of the strongest antibiotics in the world. Nature provides it. It has to get into the body to fight Lyme. I always tell people that they have to eat it. I make coconut oil with it. I freeze it and break off small pieces of it. I add it into food. You have to keep a good concentration of cannabis in your body Your cells have to be saturated.
Now I help others get their cards and then meet them at the dispensary so they can make an informed purchase. I want to empower others to get well.
