My Husband Upon Bee Venom Therapy

“You’re the type of woman who finds this stuff, researches it to death and then does it!”

Yep, I’ll also talk your ear off if you ask me about BVT and generally I am very quiet person.

Bee Venom Therapy for Lyme Disease

JMJ

I feel so much better since starting BVT! I just want to shout it from the roof tops! Bee venom therapy works! It kills Lyme. Honeybees are miraculous healers!

I am blessed to have found this therapy, difficult though it may be I am blessed! Since beginning therapy, I have more energy, my air hunger has left, my heart palpitations have left, my brain fog has lifted and I have resumed one of my greatest passions- writing.

I still have fatigue, joint pain and headaches but they are manageable with this treatment and in two to three years I can expect a full recovery. A full recovery! Because BVT is not FDA approved we can not state that it is a cure. But it has been proven the Bee Venom Kills spirochetes*! BVT is hard, it is painful, but it works. And I want everyone who suffers from Lyme disease, who has lost their livelihoods, who has lost  their joys in life, to know that Bee Venom Therapy works!

Thank God! Praise God!

*The antimicrobial agent melittin exhibits powerful in vitro inhibitory effects on the Lyme disease spirochete.

Lubke LL, et al. Clin Infect Dis. 1997.

Abstract

Borrelia burgdorferi has demonstrated a capacity to resist the in vitro effects of powerful eukaryotic and prokaryotic metabolic inhibitors. However, treatment of laboratory cultures on Barbour-Stoenner-Kelly medium with melittin, a 26-amino acid peptide contained in honeybee venom, showed immediate and profound inhibitory effects when they were monitored by dark-field microscopy, field emission scanning electron microscopy, and optical density measurements. Furthermore, at melittin concentrations as low as 100 microg/mL, virtually all spirochete motility ceased within seconds of inhibitor addition. Ultrastructural examination of these spirochetes by scanning electron microscopy revealed obvious alterations in the surface envelope of the spirochetes. The extraordinary sensitivity of B. burgdorferi to mellitin may provide both a research reagent useful in the study of selective permeability in microorganisms and important clues to the development of effective new drugs against lyme disease.

In Sickness and In Health

In Sickness and in Health 

I never thought while saying those vows, that I was the one who was going to be sick. I always envisioned a sick husband to take care of. One who suffered from dementia  or facing disability. I cringe at the Sentimentality of my thoughts then- Never did I imagine it would be me.

Dr. – called. You have Lyme.

Weird he knew first. The Dr. told him first and he told me. He rang and rang to reach me. I sometimes wonder how it hit him. Did he think back to our wedding day too? Sacred vows given freely, with a firm, hushed and quickened tone in the little chapel. The chapel of my youth.

– I do? She called? 

yes. Call her back. 

alright.

-honey.

yea.

it’ll be okay. I Love you.

She was never the same again. I sat on the sofa those words kept coming back to me. Is the woman I was just a few months ago- is that woman gone? will my husband look back and think to himself. She was never the same again? How much easier it would be for me to say those words about him! but I can’t, it’s me. Oh, how proud I was, even in those vows. How proud!

The blessed ring in my hand, I repeat the vows. Trying to comprehend the meaning of the symbols, the ceremony. In sickness and in health. I try to slip the ring on his finger, but it gets stuck half way. Nervous, I look up. Amused, he smiles. Finally it moves. To Death Do us part. 

I didn’t make dinner. I felt too tired. I’m sorry. 

It’s okay. Lay down. 

There’s left overs I think. The girls already ate. 

Lay down. Don’t worry about it. Are you hungry? 

No. 

My rings clank. Loose now. The ruby keeps slipping to the inside of my palm; the rings once proportioned, look large. I straighten them and lay down on the sofa.  Dear God!  The fatigue is unbearable. The vows spoken years ago weigh on my soul, but not as a burden, as I lay there I feel anchored. I am his. I was his in health and I am still his even now, especially now- In sickness. . .

I’ve been sick. Too sick for words. Sick for a long time – months. I have Lyme Disease. It hurts to put my hair up, it hurts to take a shower, it hurts to move. Some days I just lay in bed. Others I feel better, I do simple chores and take care of my girls.

Lyme, I thought it was just fatigue and joint pain. No one said it was going to feel like a ton of bricks were on my chest as I tried to breathe or that the joint pain throbs like a jammed finger. But it’s not just a jammed finger it’s  jammed knees, elbows, shoulders, toes- a unified, throbbing, chronic and invisible pain. I didn’t know what it could do. What it could take away so rapidly –  my routine, my desires, my life. I didn’t know the heaviness that it would bring!

But I’m getting better- Thank God! I am getting better through the sweet healing sting of God’s honored honeybee! I sting myself with bees an inch along my spine on acupuncture points. The venom pulses through my back  -it burns. The first time I stung myself, I lost my breath from the shock of it. Now It burns and I am able to breathe and I visualize the venom killing the pathogens that have infected my body, my life.

I think. Oh, to think! I am finally able to think! Lyme takes away thought and with it a certain joy. The joy of clarity. Oh, to have thought! I wanted to think yet couldn’t. They call it brain fog. But it feels more like mindlessness- doing things you know you should do but not fully understanding the task at hand Or trying to express yourself but finding no words, no real thought. But now, I can think again, Write again. Thank God! Thank God!
