The Great Imitator.... Lyme disease mimics hundred of other diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis(MS), Chronic Fatigue, and Epstein Barr Just to name a few. A few years ago I watched some random show about some people who were bed ridden, thinking they had MS, or some other illness, and later being diagnosed with Lyme. These people were able to get treatment after decades long struggles.
This year my little girl was bitten by two ticks on the same walk, and lyme disease is pretty prevalent in the ticks in our area. Of course my mind flashed back to this show, and I saved the ticks in the freezer. The thing is, you can have Lyme disease without the "red bulls-eye". You can carry it for years and not even know it's sitting, waiting in your body.
Two days ago I learned that this amazing woman, Judy McKenzie, was diagnosed with Lyme disease. She has had one health issue after another (remember Lyme disease mimics), and one miracle after another to go with it. She's had people tell her she's crazy, and attention seeking. I know her as a fighter, and loving mother. She was preganant with her 1st miracle child, when I lost my second. Judy should not be able to get pregnant at all; however, she now has not 1, but 3 beautiful miracle children. I remember at our husbands graduation, when we saw each other for the first time after I lost the baby, a huge embrace that has bonded us permenantly. That hug meant the world to me, when other people were afraid to be around me, unsure of what to say or do.
To make a long story short, Judy's insurance is not going to cover her treatments. I will be creating a GoFundMe for her after her next appointment, and treatment plan has been created. In the meantime, I am donating all of the profits from my essential oil sales to Judy for the next couple of months. You can order here mydoterra.com/justtheessentials
Judy is going to be able to use essential oils to support her recovery from Lyme. Essential oils have been found to be both antibacterial and anti-viral. In addition they can support pain management, as well as bring positive feelings. Judy will be using a myriad of oils, in conjunction with conventional treatment, to support her recovery.
If you are an oil user, consider purchasing through my site for the next few months so that the profits can go straight to her. If you are not an oil user YET and have questions please contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org
