Lyme patients tell their stories

From Jan D.:

I’m an advocate for tick borne diseases (Lyme disease) who has been sick for 17 years and spent $75,000 on hopeful treatments. I was finally diagnosed with 5 different tick infections 5 years ago after 12 years on misdiagnosis and was on antibiotics for 3 years and herbs for 2. In the last couple of weeks I had 3 appointments with an ONDAMED practitioner. I’m amazed how much better I feel and am telling everyone who calls on my hotline that we may have found a miracle. Lyme disease is an epidemic and maybe you could put someone on your ad who was helped by your device. There are millions of us very sick from ticks and we are all needing for a cure or at least some relief. Thank you for doing this, if I had bought your machine 10 years ago I would have saved about $50,000 by now.

From Rachel M.:

Probably one of my most amazing stories is an 83 year old woman that was house ridden, she couldn’t leave her home because of such horrific Lyme symptoms as well as incontinence. On her third ONDAMED session she was able to come to me for her session. She was ecstatic, she was able to leave her home, go out and do several errands, had increased energy, incontinence was under control and most important she was out of bed! Here is the kicker, on her fifth ONDAMED session she shared with me that she went horse back riding, YES horse back riding at 83! A woman that goes from being in bed to horse back riding in as little as 5 ONDAMED sessions and I never had to see her again! (I check in with her periodically to see how she is doing and she is still well and NO Lyme symptoms either. She feels better than ever.)

Personally, I had Lyme for ~10 years undiagnosed, while doing ONDAMED as a guinea pig, it was brought to my attention that I may have Lyme. I went to my PCP and requested I be tested for Lyme, again this is after 10 years of complaining of the same symptoms every Fall, and sure enough the test came back positive. At that time my PCP suggested antibiotics and I explained that I was doing ONDAMED therapy and wanted to continue with the biofeedback therapy and not take the antibiotics. (Clearly I had Lyme for such a long time, what did I have to loose trying an alternative therapy first?) So, I continued having ONDAMED sessions every week for 6 months. During that time I was starting to feel so much better on so many levels; my energy was picking up, my aches were dissipating, fatigue vanished, headaches subsided as well as sensitivity to lights. ONDAMED changed my life! Having a background in Biology/Chemistry, attending Chiropractic school and working as an engineer at a biotech company – alternative medicine wasn’t exactly what I studied. I will be forever grateful for the experience I personally had with the ONDAMED that I purchased a device, eventually left my engineering position, and opened my practice full-time. Every day I get to help other people and be part of their healing journey. It is so rewarding and encouraging to be part of such an amazing therapy and technology. Most important I’m happy and proud to announce that 7 years later I am still symptom- free all thanks to ONDAMED!

Theresa J.:

Living with Lyme for the last 30 years has been challenging, and at times, life threatening for me. By 2009, I was so debilitated from this disease, I could barely walk or talk and definitely not able to take care of myself. My daughter had to take care of me as I was not able to do even the simplest day to day activities. Even though I have had serious bouts before, this time I feared I may never get better.  I didn’t want to be a burden on my family and I became very depressed.
Mainstream medicine’s answer was heavy doses of antibiotics but my body wouldn’t tolerate it for more than a week. It would cause me to have gut wrenching pain and drop my sodium level so fast I came close to going into a coma. If that wasn’t enough it caused seizures so severe, I had to be held down so I wouldn’t hit my head against objects like the wall or the floor. So, I needed to keep searching for answers. By 2011, I was so week and so thin, I wasn’t sure I would last the year. I knew I would have to find something soon or I may never recover or perhaps even die of Lyme.
It was late January when I was exposed to the first step that would help me on the road to recovery. It was the Gerson therapy. The Gerson therapy is basically a nutrient-dense plant based diet of fruits and vegetables with an emphasis of raw juices. It also stressed detoxing with coffee enemas and bentonite clay packs. Within a few weeks of the therapy, I noticed my pain level to decrease and I knew, finally, something that would be beneficial in my healing. Although Gerson was helping, it wasn’t the complete answer for me to be functional again. I needed something more, something that could halt the bacteria that was destroying my body and would also heal the damage that had already occurred.
Then came the critical second step to speed the healing: ONDAMED. This device is a focused pulsed electromagnetic therapy that detects weaknesses in the body and also stimulates a healing response. It helped give my cells the energy to be able to heal and also fully detox.  It aided my ability to take in nutrients that my body could utilize. The microorganism frequencies helped my immune system fight against the spirochetes and other co-infections I had. My detox regimen took care of the aftermath of any die-off.  It was the perfect combination.

I started to be able to gain some weight and I could fill the vitality of life come back into my body. After a few months of weekly treatments along with physical therapy, I starting getting motor function back and I was able to walk without fear of falling.  Soon I could drive a car again which helped me become independent. By the summer of 2011, I had the confidence that I could live on my own.  I wasn’t totally out of the woods, but I was definitely on my way, to not only survive, but to thrive in life. I am very grateful for all the support I have had from friends and family and for the healing modalities that were developed to help me get there like ONDAMED.  It truly gave me a second chance at life.

From Dr. Travis S., M.D.:

He suffered with Lyme, undiagnosed, for over 5 years He diagnosed himself, starting with the identification of an unusual reoccurring rash. His colleague and Lyme Expert with whom he consulted recommended he see Therese Juedes for an ONDAMED treatment. After only 3 treatments with her, he was noticeably better and decided to purchase the full system. He felt like she “saved his life” using this incredible technology.

From Perry Fields:

Perry Fields, a USA Track and Field athlete was diagnosed with severe Lyme in 2005.  She was 24 yrs old. She was told she would never run again.  Friends of her physician parents recommended a doctor in the mountains of North Carolina. He taught her how to treat herself including using the ONDAMED device daily and for the next 9 months she treated herself every weekend in his cabin up in the woods. She began researching all things Lyme related and by 2007 was ready to move to FL and train for the 2008 Olympics.  She suffered a relapse due to pathogens in her mouth and had surgery to remove them. And she missed her bid.  By 2009, Perry was training again and by 2010 she raced her first indoor track season since 2001, where she made her debut at the USA Track and Field Indoor Nationals and competed in the Olympic Trials.in 2012. With her complete recovery she has written a book, “The Tickslayer” which chronicles her road to recovery and she continues to offer advice and hope to Lyme sufferers worldwide through her website.

KD is a 15 year old teen who was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 6th grade (Spring of 2002).

For the next two years she took a series of antibiotics including Rocephen (intravenously) and many other antibiotics without any result. Her liver became inflamed from the antibiotics and another type was then prescribed – also without any results. KD also experienced cyclical vomiting and would lose 12 pounds over the course of 7-10 days during the two year period of intensive antibiotic treatment. This would occur every other month. She saw several specialists and no one could offer any explanation. It caused her to miss many days of school. Several times she was hospitalized for the pain she experienced in her stomach. None of the endoscopies were able to reveal the cause. She was extremely fatigued and had severe intestinal/stomach pain which did not resolve with any treatment.

KD had numerous episodes of pinworm and was treated for it each time. The Lyme disease wasn’t improving despite intense antibiotic treatment for two years. Also, her liver function tests were elevated which also caused the termination of antibiotic treatment. She received her first ONDAMED treatment on 11/15/2004 and the following week, she received 3 treatments (11/22, 11/24/11/26). After 3-4 ONDAMED treatments, she was feeling 75% better and was able to go back to school. She felt so much better she went to a Lyme disease convention at the end of November and talked about her personal experience and that she had given up hope until she started ONDAMED. She still had to rest, but she was able to function and attend the entire convention. This is the first time in two years she felt almost normal.

She continued receiving treatment (11/29, 12/1, 12/3, 12/6, 12/8, 12/10) and she was able to cut the treatment to twice per week 12/13, 12/17, 12/20, 12/23, 12/27, 12/30) and experienced continued improvement. Her mother is still in touch with the ONDAMED practitioner. She told the practitioner that KD still feels great and is doing well in school. KD is dancing and active like other teens.

KD is now in 11th grade without any symptoms of Lyme disease. She will go back for ONDAMED treatment on occasion to keep up her good health. They are moving to Florida at the end of the year (2008) and will work with another ONDAMED practitioner in their new home state. (Case Study conducted by Dr. Shari Lieberman)

AD, a 6-year old autistic child was brought to the office with evidence of a tick bite.

The parent explains that the child has had fever for several days and is much less active. Child wants to sit in the mother’s lap most of the time. The child also had a rash that was on the back of the child’s neck and upper body. He received treatment with Ondamed during the visit in June 2004. AD returned to the office the next day for another treatment. His parent stated that the child’s fever broke the previous night after the Ondamed treatment. His rash was gone and his activity returned to normal. AD received a total of 5 treatments, one each day for the whole week (Monday-Friday). He did not receive any treatment over the weekend. He remains well with no evidence of Lyme disease. His laboratory analysis confirmed that he in fact had Lyme disease. (Case Study conducted by Dr. Shari Lieberman)

MB is a 49 year old female diagnosed with Lyme Disease and co-infection with Babesia and Bartonella in October 1991.

Her symptoms rapidly progress from fatigue to multiple sclerosis (MS) like symptoms such as numbness and tingling in the extremities. In January 1992 she received intravenous (IV) Rocephin for 3 months after which time she was hospitalized for three and one half weeks for a severely low white blood cell, neutrophil and platelet count. This was a side effect due to the drug treatment. She was given a challenge test to see if there was another antibiotic regimen she could tolerate. She was then given Primaxin via IV administration for approximately five and one half months. She developed antibiotic resistant bacteria (C. difficile) and was given Questran as treatment. She also developed dumping syndrome from the Primaxin. She developed nausea which was managed with Compasine administered both IV and as a suppository for one week. She was also given Minocin, Biaxin and Amoxycillin on and off until approximately June 1994. She often had to stop treatment due to the side effect of a very low white blood count. Despite the massive antibiotic treatment her symptoms did not improve. She would get a little better for a short time and then her symptoms would return. She also developed more symptoms during the years of antibiotic treatment including knee pain in both knees, left hip pain and debilitating neuropathy. Her doctor told her there was nothing else he could do for her. (Case Study conducted by Dr. Shari Lieberman)

MN is a 35-year old male diagnosed with Lyme disease in April 2000.

A tick probably bit him when he was living in Martha’s Vineyard from March to October 1998. While he never developed a rash, he slowly began to develop symptoms. They included multiple sclerosis (MS) like symptoms including numbness to the extremities, fatigue, difficulty walking, neuropathy, memory loss, dyslexia (which he did not have previously), headaches, arthralgia, muscle atrophy and spinal pain. These symptoms became debilitating and he visited 10 different physicians. He had various diagnoses that included MS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and clinical depression. He was not getting better. MN was getting worse.

In April 2000 he visited a specialist in Lyme disease who found through laboratory analysis that he was positive for Lyme disease and Ehrlichia. Over the course of 3 years he received intravenous antibiotics that included Rocephin, Merrem, Zithromax, Plaquenil, Claforan, Amoxycillin, Doxycyclin and supportive nutritional supplements. MN also received 150 hyperbaric oxygen treatments. He experienced gradual improvement to about 60% of his functioning at best. But he still had many symptoms and whenever he went off the drugs his symptoms became significantly worse. There was no lasting improvement. He knew that he could not stay on antibiotics forever, nor did he want to.

In May 2003 he sought the advice of another integrative physician who gave him an ONDAMED treatment. He received one ONDAMED treatment each week and within 2 weeks his health improved to 90%. The improvement was so significant that MN bought his own machine July 2003 and continued ONDAMED treatment 2-3 times each week. He also stopped the antibiotics shortly after starting ONDAMED treatment. MN used simple patient preset modules for one year. After one year, he decreased his treatment to 1-2 times per week. The MS symptoms including numbness and neuropathy are completely gone. He is able to walk and exercise normally. His memory has significantly improved and his headaches and dyslexia are gone. He does not have arthralgia, muscle atrophy or spinal pain. He was unable to work from 2000-2003 and was on disability. He now works full time and travels extensively. MN became a master ONDAMED trainer. If he overworks and pushes himself too hard or if he has days of sleep deprivation he may feel some slight symptoms return such as mental fog and fatigue. MN will increase his usage of ONDAMED 2-3 times per week or until symptoms disappear – usually within one week. He continues to live a full and active life.

Perry Fields interviewed Silvia Binder in July 2012:

Q: Silvia, as you know I was using ONDAMED back in 2006 to get healthy. Being an ND, what are your thoughts on healing Lyme disease?
A: I believe healing is very possible with almost all disease processes including Lyme disease. I consider Lyme disease an immune deficiency disorder. The question that interests me as a practitioner is WHY the immune system of my patient is suppressed or dysfunctional. I am a firm believer in the theory that our physiology follows our mind and emotions. In other words our body manifests unresolved emotional issues such as trauma or shock we experienced at some point in our life. The memory of such unresolved trauma or shock resides on a cellular level somewhere in our body hindering our body to be as strong, vibrant, and healthy as it could possibly be. We won’t notice it right away. But what I believe happens is that the shock or trauma disconnects us from the powerful self we have come to be and live in this lifetime. Most of us continue to stray away from “our path” and further disconnect from our truth. This, in a much broader sense and from a wider perspective on immune deficiency disorders, may be the causal factor for our disease journeys. It is our own disconnect from the power within that invites inflammation and infection.
Q: How does ONDAMED help those who are suffering from Lyme disease?
A: ONDAMED and its unique biofeedback loop allow practitioners to find and treat dysfunctional tissue. The practitioner stimulates the patient with specifically chosen focused fields emitted from a handheld applicator that is moved from head to toe, front and back. Every time the patient reacts (biofeedback loop) to the stimulus when moved over a specific area, the practitioner notes this reaction area concluding that there may be inflammation, infection, scar tissue, or memories of unresolved shock or trauma residing on a cellular level.

It is the patient who sits in the driver’s seat directing the practitioner of WHERE the weakest areas are located and with WHAT focused fields such areas need to be stimulated. Instead of a pharmaceutical or nutraceutical used systemically, the ONDAMED provides a focused “electroceutical” approach targeted to the areas in most need.

If you’ve ever seen Dr. Beverly Crusher in Star Trek The Next Generation, she uses a Tricoder Technology to scan over the body to evaluate imbalances and once imbalances are found, she uses the Tricoder to send electromagnetic pulses toward the body area to stimulate healing processes. ONDAMED is quite similar, but may be the 1st generation of an advanced Tricoder since Star Trek plays in the 24th Century.

Back to the 21st Century, the ONDAMED stimulation attracts immune response to the specific tissue area where applicators are placed. ONDAMED’s focused fields cause an induction from within cells and tissue; cells and tissue are being vibrated or moved which causes not only the immune system to respond but also detoxifies cells from toxins and waste product.

Simultaneously to what is happening on the targeted tissue areas, ONDAMED has a systemic effect on the lymph system. Lymphatic flow is being stimulated to help carry toxins and waste product from cells and tissue to the respective organs to excrete these unwanted debris through our stool, urine, or sweat.

While the ONDAMED causes so many different actions to happen all at the same time, its focused field stimulation also has great impact on the nervous system. Depending on the fields used, they either have a relaxing or exciting effect on the nervous system.
Q: Tell us more about using ONDAMED to address all the symptoms that people with Lyme suffer from?
A: I typically suggest that our practitioners use all four operating Modules the ONDAMED System offers. This will allow addressing patients’ symptoms from different perspectives with a wide range of frequencies and programs.

We work with frequencies that are specific to organs and organ systems, offering very precise frequencies to the areas in most distress.

170 different therapeutic programs then offer a more generic approach while providing information as to the patient’s health journey. I call these programs that are combinations of frequencies (but never more than 2 at one time) like a whole piece of music, a symphony.

Especially for immune deficiency disorders including Lyme disease, it is critical to also use Module 3, frequencies that correlate with microorganisms. This Module is the most specific of all, using only one frequency to primarily stimulate immune response.

Module 4 is also essential since it deals with unique frequencies to stimulate assimilation of enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and more.

With use of these four Modules, Lyme sufferers have shown to:

  • deeply relax
  • improve their sleep patterns
  • detoxify by sweating more and with noticeable frequency and consistency changes of stool & urine
  • facial complexion improves (patients’ skin color changes from grey tone to a healthy radiant tone)
  • having more energy
  • being able to think clearer
  • memory improves
  • bigger range of motion
  • less or no pain
  • reduce or stop medication (with guidance of their physician)
  • weight balances
  • addictive patterns reduce or stop
  • feeling better about themselves and finding it easier to manage their life challenges
  • quality of life significantly improves
  • patients have been observed to undertake big life transformations including a new career path, seeking additional or brand new education, changing or allowing a partnership, move, etc.

Q: What should one expect to feel after an ONDAMED session? When can people start to notice improvement with the use of ONDAMED? Is there a rough estimate of the number of sessions that someone may need before they start feeling symptoms get better?
A: The first thing people feel is that they relax and have less pain. Often patients report a better and deeper sleep. Pain levels drop and people can move better and easier and they have energy! They feel better about themselves and start taking ownership of their life again.

Generally speaking, people should feel a change in the first 5 sessions and after 15 – 20 sessions (either weekly or bi-weekly) there should be a substantial improvement with people’s symptoms. I always tell me patients that our first step to get them well is to stabilize them which may take anywhere from 2-10 sessions. After people have achieved a stable level, we work on building their health. So, even if symptoms have reduced it is important to work on building strength and health.

Q: If symptoms get better, is it safe to say that healing is actually taking place. Most people with Lyme are very fearful. They fear that they aren’t ever going to get well and if they do get well, they can expect to have another “attack” or “episode” of symptoms.
A: Yes, we can safely say that patients are healing. Of course, our belief in Naturopathic Medicine is to stimulate the patient’s own healing abilities, which is always present in the body. I want to mention here that while our healing abilities are present, the patient may not yet be ready for healing. We must respect the patient’s need and abilities and the right time for undertaking their healing journey. Another belief we hold in Naturopathic Medicine is to set the patient free and not bind them to yet another “thing”. Therefore, while ONDAMED is a significant tool to stimulate wholesome healing, we must never forget or stop to educate our patients in terms of life style, nutrition, stress factors in their environment, etc. This way the patient is equipped with their own tools to better understand how to live a more aware, healthy, and joyful life.

I can’t stress enough how critical the work is with unresolved emotional shock or trauma By stepping into a deeper level with patients, we are able to help them reconnect to their inner strength in order for their bodies to follow this connection and strength. Once people “got a hold” of their power within and they start nurturing and growing their “inner seed”, they have a fundamental base from where to direct their bodies and avoid to ever having to experience another “attack” or “episode”.

Q: How does energetic medicine fit into someone’s recovery? How should it be used?
A: Good question, Perry. Since all beings are electro-magnetic, it is a no brainer to understand the importance of using energy medicine. The field of Western medicine has been using “energetic medicine” to diagnose – just look at MRI, X-Ray, Ultrasound, EEG and EKG. These devices are an integral part of conventional medicine.

Acupuncture, pulse reading and herbs have been used for thousands of years as part of Eastern medicine.

The field of “energetic medicine” offers many different approaches. I am a skeptic and need to see evidence of safety and efficacy. All of you should ask questions when offered any form of treatment. I always encourage my patients to do their own research since it puts them in a position of power.

There are fine & cutting edge energetic approaches, yet there also are many questionable methods, some even dangerous. If you wish to heal quickly and lastingly you must be treated in a focused and specific way. The body needs specificity for proper healing (the yogis already stated this a long time ago). A generic approach can be limited, may cost you time and money and more importantly you may give up hope. We don’t want that. Therefore, do your own research and use common-sense and practical thinking. It goes a long way and sets you free.

All in all, people need different elements of healing stimulation. Several pizza slices make a whole “pizza pie” and we need different slices of therapeutic interaction to reduce or even better end people’s suffering from their Lyme symptoms.  It is absolutely necessary to include energetic medicine in order to tap into the cellular communication system of a person.

The return to Personalized Medicine in a safe and common-sense kind of way is the key for helping people to not only overcome their disease, but learn from their disease journey and become a more aware, healthy, strong, and joyful person. (end of interview)
