Signs/Symptoms

When I started this blog I thought I was dealing with *just* candida overgrowth. July 2011 I as diagnosed with Chronic Lyme and Babesia and a host of problems/health issues as a result. I hope that someone will be helped by the information I post.

My list has gotten so small and I am SO thankful. I am renewing my mind and taking every thought captive, and God is healing my body. I was on thyroid medication for 20 years – the last 7 years on two of them – and now I am completely off both. My thyroid is healed. I am also off adrenal support supplements and feeling good. I have energy to exercise again.

Current Signs/Symptoms as of 10.29.2016

  1. Swollen eye lids upon waking (mostly on right) – improved
  2. White spots on fingernails – gone
  3. Very dry skin – gone, even on my hands and without lotion
  4. Inability to work full time – planning on looking for part-time work soon
  5. Low blood pressure – mostly gone now
  6. HypothyroidismHEALED!!! I am OFF thyroid medication
