The first thing we did was an ERMI test from Mycometrics… we found out that we had toxic mold.
Now you can do the HERTSMI-2 for half the money of the ERMI and plug your results into the HERTSMI scorecard and see if your house is safe to stay in. Each of us has a different tolerance level for toxins, so take that into consideration too.
We moved out and took nothing with us. I don’t think that is necessary anymore. I have found an air reactor that is allowing people to stay in their homes and regain their health.
You have to detox from whatever toxin is causing your illness.
If it isn’t mold, breathing clean air and eating clean food and using safe personal products, you are moving toward health.
You will have ups and downs,
aim for more ups than downs.
The only way out is through.
If some treatment makes you sicker,
most of the time, you can press through
and get to a better place in health.
Use the Coca Pulse Test to make sure you don’t have an allergy… and then keep on going.
When you are going through hell, keep on going.
Get the book “Clean” by Alejandro Junger
Follow that for AT LEAST 21 days…
I did 13 weeks.
You could also watch the movie “Fat Sick and Nearly Dead” — but unlike the “Clean” protocol, that is straight juicing. They call it a “reboot.”
My liver and kidneys were clogged from all the toxins. Drink lemon water with lemon and xylitol, milk thistle tea, detox teas, solidago drops added to water, lots of filtered water with minerals added.
Get 2-4 bottles 4 ounce of LiverLife.
Start with one drop. Slowly progress to 60 drops, 3 times per day.
Do a Liver/Gallbladder Flush when you feel stronger and are looking for progress. If there is any question of parasites, do a parasite protocol FIRST!
Check your saliva pH – first thing every morning
before you eat or drink anything. Temporarily & artificially
raise your pH by taking baking soda:
1/2 tsp, up to 7 times a day for up to 2 weeks.
Your first morning saliva pH should be 7.34
If your pH is lower you have some kind of infection:
fungal, parasitic, bacteria, or viral
Sodium Bicarbonate: A Full Medical Review is a good book on pH
If you are not sure if you have heavy metal issues
and you are chronically ill… you probably do!
Get a Hair Test through Doctor’s Data
Use Direct Labs if you don’t have a doctor who will order this test
Then use this book to Interpret the Hair test
I've just learned of another way to hair test with analysis and treatment plan included with some testing — this may be a better way to detox from Heavy Metals. It makes sense to me and many people are having success with it.
Get the book “Amalgam Illness”
In a neti pot, with warm distilled water,
add 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp sea salt
and 1 teaspoon xylitol. – do this up to 4x daily.

If you develop MCS… treat infections with
Buhner Herbs. www.buhnerhealinglyme.com
I get my herbs from 1st Chinese Herbs
I buy a pound of powdered herbs and veggie caps and make my own pills.
This saves money.
Also, when we were first told to do the Buhner herbs, we were given one pill with 5 herbs in it, but I wanted to give them to my son separately, because he was very sensitive to treatments. Back then, Stephen Buhner was still answering questions about the protocol on his website. I asked what order we should start them in.
Here is the answer Stephen Buhner gave:
Your decision to take the herbs one at a time to see how you respond is brilliant, a very good way to check your system.
Andrographis is the one herb in the protocol that can cause side effects that can be uncomfortable. I would suggest starting with Japanese knotweed, then cat's claw, then eleutherococcus, and only then adding in the andrographis.
The knotweed will act to reduce the inflammation in the nervous system and that should help your nervous system deal with the andrographis. Still, it may be that you are one of the few for whom the herb does not work well, your approach will let you know this as you go on. The other herbs in the protocol will act to reduce the lyme symptoms considerably or even totally, even without the andrographis.
I tested positive for Mycoplasma and Bartonella too.
We had success with a tincture from Beyond Balance called Bar-1 — you do need to be working with a practitioner to get Bar-1 so stick with the Buhner herbs if you don’t have a practitioner trained in Beyond Balance.
The book Healing Lyme is worth every penny – and Stephen Buhner has other books available on Amazon.
Probiotics are a must.
Find a good one… or several.
If food is undigested, take Betaine HCL with meals
If you can’t sleep, take melatonin or Chinese Skullcap before bed.
Gentle exercise is needed. The goal is to get to
an hour of non-aerobic exercise every other day.
You may need the entire next day to rest.
Start with 5 minutes if you have to and build up
your stamina. Be gentle and celebrate the gains.
Yoga, Pilates, weight lifting are all good. I got a Total Gym
Put xylitol in lemon water all day long to tolerance.
Start with 1/2 tsp and build up tolerance. Xylitol is
and antifungal, anti bacterial, anti viral so if you have
infections, it may give you the runs… back off and then
start again. Better out than in.

multi b vitamin
Evening primrose oil
liquid essential minerals (selenium)
Glutathione cannot be easily supplemented but a quality
whey protein is the precursor to glutathione.
Isagenix is the only whey protein powder I found that
did not upset my stomach.
Bulletproof has another whey protein powder that I
have heard good things about.
Do some kind of energy testing to see what works
for your body.
Zyto testing with Michael Payne (yes, the practitioner matters)
Kinesiology/muscle testing – check local chiropractors
Pay attention to your body. It tells you things.
Cleansing and Acne
Coconut oil, grapefruit seed extract, theives oil, garlic,
xylitol, D-Limonene, Caprylic Acid, Olive Leaf Extract,
Malic Acid, Pau D’Arco, oil of oregano, diatomaceous earth
Truthfully, this is the tip of the iceberg of what I have
done for my health and my family’s health.

Thanks Heather for all the tips. It feels so past time for me to heal completely. I have been limping things along for a. Dry long time and even thriving, possibly just from good nutrition.
One think you might try for protein that could be more tolerable is the new USANA Smart foods. The have a whey, soy (non-GMO) and a plant based one with a variety of flavor packs to customize to your tastes.
I don’t know how I missed this comment! You are so welcome. It is time to heal… not past 🙂
I have a couple of whey proteins I like. BulletProof and Isagenix are the only 2 I have ever tolerated and I have tried a ton. I haven’t tried USANA’s yet. They do have some great products. I took Proflavanol for arthritis for 15 years!
