Hi all I have an acquaintance with diagnosed Lyme who may have stumbled on something that really did the trick for her. After being sick for I think about three years, she was clued into a treatment called "hyperthermia" where her internal body temperature was raised to over 100 F three or four times over the course of a week. There were some other things involved with the treatment: I know that she had a PICC line in for a while, as well as some other supports. Now, just a few weeks after concluding hyperthermia treatment, this person is going to the gym! and doing three mile hikes! and even talking about going back to work part time! She's totally off prescription meds and now just has an herbal protocol. The treatment certainly seems to have worked for her. The reason I'm posting here and not asking her about it directly is because this has clearly been a big step forward for her, and I don't want to be a negative nelly coming in and asking all these questions about the legitimacy of the treatment. But, I guess I just find it hard to believe that a person could go from IVs and fairly invasive procedures like having lines placed to rock climbing in so little time. What do you all think? Is she in for a big crash? Could the hyperthermia really have killed off all the Lyme bacteria, just like that?
