    Thank you so much for all the great information on disulfiram. Our LLMD has suggested it for three of my immediate family members who have Lyme and coinfections. I am gathering as much information as possible so we can make informed decisions for our family.

      We are are on a shoe-string budget and don’t have the resources to pay for transcriptions. I’ve tried automated services, but they are a disaster!

      1. Maila Coleman, M.D. says:

        Maybe someone will volunteer if you publish a request?

        1. lymeninja says:

          Never considered asking for volunteers. Thanks for the suggestion.

          There is software that does a rough job and requires hours of editing. I’m sure a good transcriptionist could do it in one go.

    In your years of experience and knowledge have you ever encounter a patient with chronic lyme disease develop , temporary 100% paralysis. I was bitten by tick summer or fall of 2009. I had the bullseye rash however had no knowledge of it meaning. 2016 became very ill. Finally received anitiboics July 2017 started to see huge improvement. 2017 confirmed testing from Armin labs. Long treatment retested Nov 2019 still positive. No anitiboics for 2 months and feeling very I’ll again. My paralysis is trigged by food and scents. Changed to gluten free diet, food related paralysis is rare however scents is still a struggle. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

      Track down an expert in detoxification. You may have mold exposure, heavy metal toxicity, and/or a genetic issue with your detox pathways.
