Diagnosed with bartonella
I am reaching out because I am hoping for some help treating Bartonella that my natural path diagnosed me with. I have been actively trying to rid this co-infection from my body for over four years. I have tried many natural pathic remedies and and antibiotic (Ramifalin I haven't tried due to my doctor saying it is for TB patient, even though text and research say to take this specific antibiotic to battle bartonella). If you are familiar with this co-infection, you know it suppress your immune system causing havoc in your body. My symptoms are: racing heart rate, twitching of muscles, tingliness of limbs, brain fog, depression, extreme anxiety, hopelessness, swelling in my hands, pain in my feet, insomnia, fatigue, whole body pain, in ability to regulate temperature, joint swelling/pain. I have attempted to control it with diet (gluten free, low histamine, low magnesium, vegan), supplements, and antibiotics but cannot see to rid this of my body. I noticed if I supplement magnesium my symptoms worsen. However, magnesium is a key mineral for your body. On top of all of those symptoms above, this co-infection causes leaky gut and other virus to arise that your immune suppresses over the years, such as Epstein Barr. I went from a collegiate athlete to having difficult time getting out of bed and or each and every day I am battling this co-infection. I am reaching out to see if anyone can help. I am desperate for any kknowledge or a direction to follow.
