Lyme Disease treatment in Germany: Read all of my Infusio posts here.

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.

Friday 3Rd November 2017

Part of me couldn’t believe it was my last day of treatment at Infusio. Having said that, I was definitely ready to go home and start healing.

Like yesterday, today it was another struggle to find a suitable vein. The veins in my arms had pretty much given up by this point! After a couple of failed attempts, Dr Bijan was asked to have a try. He took a look at my arms and decided it wasn’t even worth trying there.

I had to have the IV needle inserted into a vein in my hand. They normally try to avoid doing this as it tends to be a bit painful. I was definitely more aware of having the IV in my hand but it wasn’t actually too bad. Plus, I only had 2 IV’s today so it wasn’t in for long.

Today’s IV Treatments

The IV’s that I had today were:

  • A mineral infusion
  • Curcumin: an anti-inflammatory.

Speaking With Dr Bijan

I was relieved and happy to be finished two weeks of IVs. After they were done, I spoke to Dr Bijan about my latest blood test results. My ATP (the body’s energy molecule) was still poor but this was to be expected; I found treatment to be hard-going and it would also take time for this to improve.

The good news was that my red blood cell count (RBC) had increased a little. It was now at the lower end of normal. I was pleased about this as it meant that I didn’t have to take any injections home with me.

During my first consult with Dr Bijan, he had explained that I was anaemic. Due to this, I was told that I may need to take treatment home with me if my RBC didn’t improve sufficiently during my time at Infusio.

This treatment would be a course of injections (the same as I was given on Day 3). The injections help to stimulate red blood cell production and treat anaemia.

I have to say, I was glad I didn’t need them! The idea of self-injecting wasn’t appealing.

Going Over My Latest Global Diagnostics Scan

Nadine also chatted with me about my latest Global Diagnostics scan (read about what this is here). Some things showed up as worse than in the first scan. For example, my cellular energy was lower. However, Nadine explained that this was due to the healing processes taking place in my body (which require lots of energy).

Some areas had definitely improved, though. The level of toxins and inflammation in my body had greatly decreased; which is probably why my body liked those detox IVs so much!

Organs that had shown up as red in my first scan (i.e. not working properly) were now green. This included my liver, gallbladder, pancreas and bladder. It was only my intestines that were still displaying as a problem area.

Of course, this is just the results following the first two weeks of treatment. I only had my stem cells a couple of days ago and this is when healing really begins. So, it will be interesting to see how things have changed when I go back for my follow-up appointment.

Final Treatment

My last treatment of the day was an amazing foot massage. It was so relaxing and I couldn’t think of a better way to end my experience at Infusio.

I actually felt quite emotional when I had finished treatment. There was definitely a mix of emotions going on. I felt so much gratitude for being able to have this treatment. And, I also felt an immense appreciation for Dr Bijan and all of the Infusio team.

But, I also felt a little sad. I guess it’s always sad to say goodbye to people who you have spent time with. Especially, when that time is spent doing something so profound and life-changing. The team at Infusio are all so wonderful and I was lucky to have gone through this experience with a great group of people.

Our group finished with a healing hug, then it was time to leave. I left Infusio feeling good, joyful and incredibly grateful.

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.
