My CIDP Story

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

Am I cured? Life After Lyme

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 I believe that Lyme Disease is no longer active in my system, despite being re-bit in May 2019.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.

The Dean Center for Tick-Borne Illness: A Patient Perspective

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.

I must say that the work that has been going on at The Dean Center has been nothing short of miracle. In such a small amount of time they have helped so many people get their lives back. And for those of us who have felt there was no hope left, it has been a place where magic truly happens.
