Saw integrative medicine doctor today. There is lots to fix. We went over so much my brain hurts. Here are the big take-aways I remember.
  • Epstein-Barr is active and is the cause of many other problems.
  • My male hormones are a bit too high
  • Candida (yeast) overgrowth (thanks to Epstein-Barr paving the way for lots of bugs to attack).
  • We're not ruling out Lyme disease, but the Epstein-Barr is clear and needs to be addressed first.
    • Plan to test again for Lyme later using I-spot test? A neurological test? Costs much less than IgeneX.
    • Need to bring back IgeneX kit.
  • Genetic testing was done, and results for that will be in about 8 weeks.
    • There's an online questionnaire I need to fill out, but I don't know how. Need to follow-up about that.
  • Yup, cortisol is waaaay too low.
  • Yup, inflammation is waaaaay too high.
  • Overall, doctor very very convinced that the large percentage of my issues stem from biotoxins (not man-made toxins). Which boils down to bacteria & viruses. Just need to continue isolating which ones and working to curb them back down to a level where my immune system can keep them in check.
  • Lost 1 inch around my waist. It's the EnteraGam helping my digestion.
  • Also he's worried about some sort of nerve thing going on. Apparently my left eye blinks funny.
Stuff we need to fix & how:
  • Candida overgrowth (first)
    • Antibiotics (Diflucan). 1 pill every other day for first 4 pills. Then take 1 pill twice per week.
    • Probiotic: Kirkman Saccromyces Boulardi (a good yeast that competes with Candida). 1 daily with largest meal.
    • Candida diet (ugh). Recommended a dietician to help with that.
  • Epstein-Barr (EBV) (second)
    • Anti-viral (Acyclovir). Twice daily (not until after done with Diflucan).
Stuff to take to support body while fixing other things:
  • Continuing with EnteraGam: 1 packet per day with largest meal
  • Try D3 again: Rub it onto skin daily, 4-6 drops
  • Biotic Research Liquid Iodine: 2 drops daily
  • Ortho-Molecular Adren-ALL (adrenal support with cortisol): slowly build up to 2 daily. Once early in the morning, once in early afternoon. Do not take with thyroid meds.
