Rat Lung Worm Disease Healing Protocol

rat-lung-worm-life-cycleThis is a spreadsheet of everything I have tried or continue to work with to heal my body from the horrors of Rat Lung Worm Disease. I am 2.5 years out from infection and am finally seeing some improvements with the lessening of intensity of my chronic nerve pain in both legs, right foot and right hand.

This information is a guide for other to use to do their own research and or consult with your health care provider…preferably someone who is knowledgeable with complimentary care. Most medical professionals are not up to speed on this type of healing. Please research and only take what resonates with you. I am not a doctor…but someone who have practiced natural healing modalities under the supervision of numerous Naturopathic physicians, acupuncturists and traditional medical physicians.

  1. Oh this is hard to read. We hope you are slowly recovering and Susie and Steve caught us up on all last months visit. We are in Supply,NC at a wonderful hospital as Scotty is treated for dehydration and stomach bleed. Rough night but he is resting well now. Ferry and ambulance rides from the island worked smoothly, amazing. Sounds like Beth Partleton sold she and Vern’s cabin, we plan to chat on phone soon. What are the Clark’s summer adventures planned? Hugs maryann and scott

    1. Hi Maryann,
      SO sorry to hear about Scotty…I do hope they fix him all up to good as new! Yes…Beth sold her & Vern’s home to Mike & Liz Jenkins….who is head of ski patrol at POWMOW…we took our level 2 avalanche class from him. They will be good stewards of the property & are very happy to be there. They rented from Beth for the last 2 winters.
      We will travel to POWMOW & Idaho in Sept…I head to CA mid July to take my parents a new puppy…then visit Chey. Ian is off fighting wild land fires…He & abby just moved to Loveland CO so he is near his base year office. She is here in Hawaii for a 2 week visit so at least we get to see her.
      Love & prayers to both of you my dear friends.
