I'm Well and What Does That Mean?
Hey guys, sorry but time flies in the Lyme stratospheres. Many have contacted me through my website, phulicohanmd.com, wondering what's been happening with me. If you read recent blogs on the site you will see that I am well. But what does "well" mean? For me my current state of well is : normal immune and liver blood tests, NO antibiotics since July 2011, nearly off of all seizure medications, sleeping through the night, and having full days out of bed. I also have a completely normal neurologic exam for the first time in 4 years. There are some caveats that I will be blogging about in the future, such as Post Lyme joint pain (right shoulder), autoimmune issues (thyroid, but getting better) and PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. How did I get here? Serious detox, (intravenously, orally and transdermally), supporting hormones and metabolic pathways, (methylation and other detox pathways), and neurotransmitter balance. I would not be here without having other supports like physical therapy, constitutional homeopathy, relaxation yoga (Svaroopam yoga), Family systems therapy, to understand my hard life lessons like asking for what I need, having healthier boundaries with friends, families, and the public at large, and not overdoing things and running around in a race to nowhere.
