Disclaimer: I went through the Integrative Lyme Disease treatment program at Infusio, Frankfurt from the 23rd October to the 3rd of November 2017. During this time, I kept a journal of my experience and I am now sharing this with you here. Please keep in mind that this is my personal experience. The treatments and therapies I had were based on what was best for me as an individual. Therefore, if you have been to Infusio, Frankfurt or are planning to go, your experience may differ from mine.

Monday 30th of October

This morning I woke up feeling well rested with a clear mind. I felt ready for the day and the other patients were in good spirits too. I think everyone benefitted from having the weekend off from treatment.

day 6 Treatments

I started today with a 14-minute treatment on the laser bed. By this point, I had begun to kind of resent the laser bed. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a wonderful treatment and it no doubt helps to reduce my pain and improve my sense of wellbeing. But, it’s a bit claustrophobic and— despite being cold last therapy— I get too hot whilst in it. I hate that I’d get all sweaty and then just have to towel off and put my clothes back on.

I then had my daily thymus injection, so I was getting my two least favourite things out of the way early. Next, it was time to have my IV needle inserted. It was a little painful today. I think my vein was a bit scarred (I’m clearly not designed for multiple IV treatments!).

IV Treatments

Day 6 of Lyme Disease treatment at Infusio, involved ozone therapy.

My first IV treatment of the day was a single pass ozone. I had 10 pass ozone on the second day of treatment. This was exactly the same, except it was only done once instead of multiple times. Ozone helps to oxygenate the blood. You can read more about the benefits in my day 2 treatment blog.

Following ozone I had:

  • Calcium EDTA: a detox IV that helps to rid the body of heavy metals, metabolic waste and toxins.
  • Neuro-amino mix: a mix of amino acids that help to support detoxification and repair the nervous system.
  • Artesunate: derived from the artemisinin plant, artesunate is effective against intracellular organisms, such as Borrelia and Babesia. Simply put, it splits iron and oxygen and the oxygen is then available to kill organisms.
  • Myer’s cocktail: high dose of vitamins and minerals.

How I Felt Following my IVs

I’m not sure which IV caused it, but something completely wiped me out. The colour drained from me and I felt nauseous, weak and exhausted. Thankfully, my final IV of the day was a Myer’s cocktail and this helped to pick me up and the colour returned to my face. I was still exhausted though.

My neck and shoulder pain was still bothering me today (as it has been since the end of week one). But, my lower back pain felt much better following treatment.

It was a long day of treatment today. I was picked up at 8.15 and was in clinic until around 2 pm. The day did feel like it dragged on today. I think this was partly because I wasn’t feeling well but also because I’m starting to want to go home.

Back at the apartment, I went really cold and had chills/shivers running through me. I went for a soak in the bath, which helped. I spent the rest of the afternoon and evening resting in bed.

Hello, I'm Donna. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2013 and started this blog shortly after. After my health declined significantly the following year, I decided to become my own advocate and searched for answers. It took two years but, in 2016, I finally discovered I had Lyme Disease. On February Stars, I share my personal journey back to better health; discussing what has helped me and the mistakes I've made along the way. I also cover topics on self-improvement, managing symptoms and living life to the fullest with chronic illness.
