Amazing Results: The Healing Power of Cannabis Oil On Lyme Disease and Lyme Co-infections

vfdvdfThe beginning of my journey with Lyme disease is similar to most. My ending, however, is playing out quite differently than most. I found a tick behind my ear at the age of fourteen, and had various health problems for seven years before I was finally diagnosed with Lyme disease, Lupus, Mycoplasma, Bartonella, and Babesia. After two years my Lupus, Mycoplasma, Bartonella and Babesia are entirely eradicated. As far as my Lyme disease goes, I now have zero symptoms. My remaining ones are a result of withdrawals from the prescriptions I so naively started taking when I was initially diagnosed. How am I already returning to a healthy lifestyle only two years after forgetting to read, write, walk and talk? Well, a wealth of credit is owed to the Buhner protocol. I would not be where I am today without it. Still, I had one last giant “hump” in healing to get over after a year on the protocol. So I took a shot in the dark which, for me, turned out to be the path to light. I decided to make my own cannabis oil and began taking it every waking hour. I now owe my life to this fascinating herb and am hopeful some of you will find strength and encouragement through this information.

For a year and a half I had over ten seizures a day. I tried every treatment I could find, exhausting outlets in both conventional and holistic medicine. Desperately searching for answers, I stumbled across what turned out to be one of the most profound facts I have ever learned. Marijuana contains one of the most potent anticonvulsants in the world. Controversy over the subject was meaningless at that point, as the herb offered a possible solution to one of my most debilitating symptoms. As it turned out, smoking marijuana not only controlled my seizures, it completely cured them. With that in mind, I moved forward with my research. If it could do for seizures what no other plant or prescription could do, what could it do for Lyme? What I found was nothing short of fascinating, and essentially lifesaving.

Cannabis has over 700 healing components which, to the best of my knowledge, is more than any other plant known to mankind.  Since my Lyme disease had reacted to and benefited from literally every herb I had taken, I figured it would without a doubt react to cannabis as well. Indeed, it did. Smoking marijuana had sometimes made me feel sick in the past, and I realized this could possibly be because it caused a Herxheimer reaction from bacteria die off each time. Experimenting what thankfully turned out to be an anything but crazy theory, I smoked an exceptionally large amount one night and suffered from a massive Herxheimer reaction. The next day, when it subsided, I felt I had regained a little chunk of my brain back. Since smoking the herb out of a regular pipe also means inhaling a lot of toxins, I began using a vaporizer to get more cannaniboids. My rate of improvement significantly sped up when I did this. Naturally, this motivated me to take treatment one step further and find out what the results of taking cannabis oil would do for me.  After only a month of taking it I was able to return to work and school, and began to drive and have a social life again. Now, I am finally planning to move out and be independent for the first time in years. Basically, I am returning to a lifestyle that I was once unsure I would ever see again thanks to the immense healing power of cannabis oil.

Understandably, some will negate this article due to preconceived notions regarding cannabis, ones we were all conditioned to believe from a young age. Even I once held strong beliefs that cannabis was harmful to my health, but I could not be more thankful that I was proven otherwise. For me, the tangible proof stemming from first-hand experience will always trump the mere words of others.

  5. This is awesome! So many people i know are better from Lyme Disease after using cannabis oil. One caveat though: in most states, you are not allowed to drive when any level of this is detectable in the system (even if you’re not stoned at all). So check the laws in your state. The laws have not caught up to this yet, even when medical cannabis is legal in a state. So for example, in some states, it is illegal to drive 5 days after ingesting cannabis oil, because it would still be detectable in your system.

    I’m curious about how you were able to hold a major herxing episode to a day. Were your herxing bouts always that short, I mean before the Cannabis? Major herxing bouts usually last for days or more for me, always have. Well not always just most of the time, I do experience shorter reactions and I have learned how to control them a bit depending on what I’m doing that’s creating them. But I’m really curious about the first major herx reaction you discribe getting after taking the Cannabis for the first time that subsided along with a great deal of brain fog by the next day. Is this the way it works with Cannabis for some reason? Is it the same with the oil? I have used Oregano Essential Oil with good results (measured by being able to create herxing actually) do you take the Cannabis oil the same way (internally in gel cap’s mixed with a carrier usually)?

    Shelly, regarding the oil. How often did you take it? I’m starting next week I hope when I receive the oil, but I’m not sure how much to take. Did you take 1 drop at the time several times a day or bigger amounts of drops in one time? Hope you can reply.
