[YEA] I have had lyme since February 22,1978. I rescued a puppy from the pound and she had 25 ticks and one got into my leg and I didn't know it for about a month. I was crawling around the floor one day and happened to sit up and found it in my leg. Well, you know the rest of the nightmare, no point in going into it. Sometimes I would feel great and couldn't remember what new supplement I had taken and then it would go away and I would be flat on my back.
One of the best ones I used was Bloodroot which I got from Ted but I had to take it with a scoop of L Glutamine powder (black cherry) so I didn't herx. Last night I was googling as usual and I remembered Pantethine for the adrenals. I had taken Pantothenic Acid on and off for years and I also took Pantethine too. I searched out my bottles of Pantothenic Acid, and Pantethine and took 1000 mg. Pantothenic Acid and 600 Pantethine along with an organic b-complex and a vitamin C and felt quite good in about 20 minutes. I am sure I found the missing link because I started googling and found nothing substantial about lyme and Pantothenic Acid or Lyme and Pantethine and that tells me that the information is very, very hard to find.
I started to google the symptoms of Lyme and the symptoms of a Pantothenic Acid and a Pantethine deficiency. From what I learned Pantothenic Acid (b-5) is great for acne or skin rashes and Pantethine is good for all the symptoms of lyme disease.
I always felt like lyme felt like Addison's disease even back in 1978 and exhausted adrenals are a Pantothenic deficiency. So at times I was treating myself for adrenal insufficiency and feeling great but forgot what I was taking. I have enough supplements to have my own vitamin store and I don't use antibiotics for this scourge. I tried them in the beginning but it always came back so I gave up on conventional meds. a long time ago.
Pantethine is for infection, exhausted adrenals, brain fog, cognitive functioning, cysts, rashes, sleep problems, low testosterone, liver problems, weight gain, angry, angry, angry, depressed, anxious, exhaustion beyond anyone's wild imagination, crawling on the floor, crying, screaming, vomiting, nausea, candida or yeast infections etc. It sounded like lyme to me, at least my lyme that I have been fighting with and googling for remedies for thirty six years. Now I am using an expensive brand of Pantethine 300 mg, 3times a day along with Pantothenic Acid 500mg. once a day for the cysts.
I always take an Organic B-complex along with the Pantethine and the pantothenic Acid so as not to cause an imbalance of the b's and cause more problems after I am feeling so good and so normal. I also take a 500mg. C and all the others like E, A, DHEA Plus Cream, 2 manganese and one organic Cranberry capsule for viruses. Cranberry doesn't work for me if it isn't organic, it just won't work. I still use 10 drops if Organic Bloodroot and one scoop of L Glutamine and Evening of Primrose caps. 1300 mg. I take two of them per day, two K2's for infection and my teeth and sublingual b 12.
It is the Pantethine and the Pantothenic Acid that is making me feel the best and giving me energy. I put idiot notes all over the house so I won't forget it again and put it on an automatic delivery in case I do forget even with the idiot notes. I hope you will please, check this information out and you might like to give it a try as it really threw me over the top. I don't know how I am supposed to feel at 70 years old as I was just thirty four when I found that tick in my leg and changed my life forever, I thought. I feel like I am doing very, well for a seventy year old. I seem to be doing as well as other seventy year olds and better than some of them. I have now started to take notice of other older women to see how they walk and compare them to the way I walk and move. I don't know how else to figure this out.
So, now I wonder if the lyme bacteria simply depletes your body of all traces of Pantothenic Acid and if you have no Pantothenic Acid you cannot convert it into Pantethine. I managed to sleep eight hours last night and I am ready to go to bed and actually sleep again tonight. Now I know why I have always craved milk and ice cream. A glass of milk has 40 mg. of pantothenic acid. It used to state that on every milk carton but suddenly it disappeared about 25 years ago. Best wishes and please google and study this information and if you are just too sick to do that please try to get someone to do it for you. Ask them to make print outs for you and maybe a kind, soul will read them to you. Eat everything that has high Pantothenic Acid in it, too. If anyone told you that your illness was in your mind and this works for you as it did for me then you will then know what to tell them, in no uncertain terms because it is your turn. Take care.
