Intramuscular Colloidal Silver (MRI scans included)

Post by johnholland » Fri 29 Jun 2012 18:48

Hi All,

With much joy I can say that my health in the last 11 months has improved constantly. In July 2006 I was bitten by a tick. About 4 weeks later a clinical picture arose far worse than I could have ever expected. Several lyme test were undertaken (paid by myself in specialised clinics in Cologne, Germany). No active lyme was found (p39 and p41 were found but in to small amounts). Due to bronchitis (December 2006) a course of doxycycline was given after which I felt much better than before. Due to unproven lyme it was very unlikely that a long course of antibiotics would be given. Because doing nothing was not an option/unbearable I started to selfmedicate by ordering online AB. The first 1,5 years I used doxycycline (400mg per day with a couple of days rest per month) but then I looked further. I think I used most of the AB available on the net. In the summer of 2010 I moved to IM injections with mainly third generation cephalosporines because of the limited effect of oral AB. Oral AB was for me definitely improving but not eliminating my typical lyme symptoms (neuro lyme). All AB (oral,IM) were combined with medications like fluconazol and metronidazol. The IM injections worked for me better than oral AB but still didnt clear my symptoms and after stopping treatment they returned very quickely. I even used tygacil which is quite costly but only brought marginal (and temporary) improvement compared to IM cephalosporines. In July 2011 came the turning point: collodial silver IM (oral had 0 effect) combined with lidocaine (used goldpharma) to lessen the pain of the liquid which is quite painfull. I use it every 3 days (8ml) for 11 months now. The colloidal silver I get from vitacost.

As I am typing this I realize that this is quite an exceptional story and still cant really comprehend why this is working so good for me. Since July 2011 I quit AB for the first time in 4 years. In this 4 years I couldnt get off AB longer tan 7 days because of the returning neuro symptoms. Instead of a relapse I have encoutered a continuous improvement which is still going on. My clarity of mind is almost at the pre July 2006 level. I have the feeling that the end of this horrible disease is getting closer and closer.

I realise that this is unconventional method but I want to share my success so that maybe someone can benefit from it. Offcourse there are no guarantees. Lyme was officially never diagnosed (allthough I had all the neuro lyme symptoms) and everybody reacts differently to chemical substances. Furthermore: IM injections are no childs play. You have to really know what you are doing.

Best regards,

Marc John

Update 12-8-12: 2 years ago I had a MRI scan paid by myself. I'm no radiology expert so hoping for some expert feedback.

After using 3 years colloidal silver I have to conclude that it wont cure me. I did improve a lot on it (more than on AB)but its not the solution for me.

I'm so sorry to hear that this treatment didn't work out for you. I think, perhaps, our Post-Treatment Lyme problems may not be from a live bacteria, but instead, perhaps, from damaged to nerves accrued from the Lyme infection.

If you are open to trying something else that I believe may aid in fixing damaged nerves (I am not a doctor nor a researcher - simply a fellow Lyme sufferer) you can try something that has made a world of difference to me: Jasmine Auriculatum.

This is completely unconventional and just something I tried out of desperation. It is usually used for skin applications and has been shown to induce a calming effect, but I cannot find anywhere the mechanism by which Jasmine does this.

If you are interested, please see my post:

http://www.lymeneteurope.org/forum/view ... f=6&t=5318

I posted that in March and have since increased my dosage (very slowly) to about 60 drops twice per day. This product is not FDA approved for ingestion - it is for external application only - but the FDA also says it is safe to ingest - you just have to make sure that whoever you buy it from doesn't put in some ingredient you should not take internally.

DO NOT TAKE IF YOU ARE PREGNANT OR NURSING!

I think the effect it has on nerves is too strong for a fetus.

I had so much horrible pain after taking antibiotics for Lyme (supposedly the Herxheimer Effect - I no longer believe that our problems have anything to do with this effect) that I became completely disabled. I have tried damn near everything and this is the only thing that has made any difference. I am not well yet, but I am leaps and bounds better than I was. I used to not even be able to type or use a computer, couldn't remember anything, so photo-sensitive that I could not go outside - not that I could walk far enough to do so - and in so much horrible pain that I wanted to die. These are just some of the symptoms that have improved immensely for me.

So, I don't know. I wouldn't blame you for being skeptical, but I just wanted to put it out there for you just in case it works for you, too.
