According to Cedars-Sinai, CIDP occurs when the body’s immune system attacks the myelin sheaths around nerve cells. But exactly what triggers this isn’t clear. Symptoms are usually the same for all types of CIDP. They can include: Tingling in the arms and legs Gradual weakening of the arms and legs Loss of reflexes Loss of balance and your ability to walk Loss of feeling in the arms and legs, which often starts with not being able to feel a pin prick
First off, I would like to state that I still wholeheartedly believe in the treatment that I had at Klinik St. Georg. I believe that Lyme Disease is no longer active in my system, despite being re-bit in May 2019. As of August 2021 I did not and have not had any relapses to the caliber of my symptoms prior to treatment at the Klinik! I have been off all medications and supplements since Summer of 2019 and had been feeling quite good for quite a long time.

MY DAILY MANTRA: "YOU ARE STRONGER THAN YOU KNOW!"
During my time at the Klinik I felt the better than I had felt in years. The fresh air of The Alps, the healing power of Kurpark, and KSG all together where full of so much energy that woke my whole body up. I think my body was beyond ready to fight the big fight.
Everyone at the Dean Center have been very helpful in educating and helping patients find coping mechanisms for day-to-day symptoms. I am thankful to now have this toolbox to help me find some sort of balance in this totally chaotic and stressful life. This balance can be attained through guidance and through practice, the Dean Center provides all these services to their patients, free of charge.
