I was sick for a decade with Lyme disease and co-infections. I had exhausted all of the treatment options in the US including IV antibiotics, oral antibiotics, herbs, accupuncture, physical therapy, chiropractor, and IVIG. Before I found Dr. Oettmeier, I was taking over 25 different prescription medications to manage all of my symptoms. My symptoms included deep nerve pain, muscle pain, headaches, insomnia, anxiety, depression, tremors, vomiting, nausea, stomach pain, rashes, twitching, and more! I struggled to eat due to a diagnosis of gastroparesis; I lost over 50 pounds before finding Dr. Oettmeier. I was hopeless and didn’t think I would ever be able to live a normal, healthy life. After exhausting all treatment options in the United States, my parents found Dr.Oettmeier in March of 2016. By April, I was in Switzerland for a month receiving treatment. The days were long and tiring; I didn’t feel better instantly which was very frustrating to my 24 year old self. However, I returned 3 more times and stuck to my protocol when back in the United States. Slowly, my stomach began to heal and I was able to stop taking all of the prescription medications. Today, over 4 years later, I have graduated from graduate school, I am a therapist, and I just welcomed a sweet baby boy into the world! If it weren’t for Dr. Oettmeier I wouldn’t be here. I am forever grateful to him and his colleagues.
