Welcome To Lyme Bytes!
April, 2014- HELLO ALL! I am no longer posting to this blog. For the latest on me and my work, I invite you to subscribe to my NEW blog: www.conniestrasheim.blogspot.com where I share my latest findings on how to heal from chronic illness involving Lyme and other conditions. Thanks!
Greetings and welcome to my Lyme disease blog, a comfy cozy (and sometimes crazy!) place for cutting-edge information, encouragement and insight into the fastest-growing epidemic disease in the United States. In this blog you will find everything from bug-killing strategies to immune system and hormone help, as well as lifestyle and spiritual suggestions for healing from chronic illness involving Lyme disease. The information contained within this blog is based upon my own healing journey and what I have learned over the past eight years as I have been diligently digging and researching my way back to a better state of health. May you find it to be a source of hope, inspiration and wisdom in your own journey towards wellness.

After two days, I started doing the same with my magnesium, and random dosing didn't feel like the same big deal as it would have back home. Why is that?
More improvisation. Purchasing carrots, celery and cream cheese at the local market so I don't have to eat gallo pinto, that is, rice and beans, or some pastry for breakfast.
Then asking waiters for cooked veggies instead of that same ol', same ol' rice and beans for dinner. It works in some places, even when veggies aren't on the menu. Costa Ricans are happy to oblige if they can, even if it means crossing the road to obtain a few zuchinni for their fussy customer.
And then there's the water pillow, which I packed from home and which has allowed me to sleep just about anywhere. I highly recommend looking into a Mediflow if you travel. You can fill it with as little or as much water as needed. I have found different mattresses require different levels of neck cushioning.
Then you can use hotel pillows as back or between-the-legs support.
Lastly, improvising has meant taking taxis to get around some of the time to save my limbs from pooping out. Thank goodness taxis in Costa Rica cost little more than using the internet!
