Follow-Up Appointment Three with Dr. D in Kirkland

My last appointment with Dr. D yesterday went really well. I asked her how parasites cause someone's metabolism to slow down and she said (according to Dr. K), the parasites get all the good stuff from your food, while you are left with all the crap. She said the majority of people with parasites are actually overweight, not underweight, like most people think. I guess the way that makes sense to me is similar to when you starve yourself, constantly cutting calories, eventually the body will down regulate. Dunno if that's what she meant but I suppose that could be it.

A few weeks back I has asked her in an email if there is something I can do or take to bring my iron levels down since blood donation is out due to POTS. She replied that I could take Artemisinin so I asked her if she could muscle test me for it.

Next I got on the table and she muscle tested all of the supplements I was on from our previous visit as well as some foods. I had brought the following with me:
  • Kerrygold Butter
  • Ghee
  • Kefired Cream
  • Mayorga Organic Coffee
  • Avocado
  • Egg White
  • Egg Yolk
  • Fermented Cod Liver Oil
I tested good for all the foods except the egg white which was neutral. Incidentally I am not crazy about egg whites and they are also in the "neutral" section of the Lyme/KPU/Low Ox list she sent me.

When she told me that coffee tests good I mentioned that I will most likely switch to decaf since I am on very little caffeine now anyhow and she said to stick with regular coffee. According to Dr. D caffeine does have some benefits and decaf can have toxins, even if it's Swiss water process decaf. She said caffeine from coffee can benefit the liver and may even help to absorb my supplements better. Again, I love her!


For the past two weeks or so I had been considering increasing Naturethroid from one grain to two grains and reducing Cytomel from 75 mcg to 50 or 62.5 mcg. My body still seems to have a hard time with Cytomel and the result is more heart racing. My last FT3/RT3 ratio was 67.9 and it needs to be above 20 so I have a little bit of room for RT3 to go up. I did not mention this to Dr. D but when she muscle tested me for Naturethroid it tested really well and as possibly needing more yet when she muscle tested me for Cytomel and Cynomel it came up as sort of blocking and possibly needing less. I am afraid to make that change since I don't want to have RT3 issues again, but maybe it's the best thing to do. It sure would be nice to be off the beta blocker completely. 

Dr. Alina was in with us again for the muscle testing and once we were done they wrote everything up for me. Unfortunately I left my treatment plan at the clinic so can't really post it yet but will do so as soon as I get it. However, she did say that she wants me to start drinking Dr. K's Lyme cocktail daily which consists of water, grapefruit juice (the "recipe" called for 1/4 cup but she said I can reduce it to 1 tablespoon), Quintessence, Mimosa Pudica, Artemisinin powder, and Lipo- Health. She wants me to run this cocktail in an ultrasonic cleaner eventually and since I wanted to run my liposomal C through one anyhow I went ahead and just ordered this one. Dr. D said to start out with the cocktail just fixed in the blender and once I tolerate the full dose to run it through the ultrasonic cleaner because it can cause too much die off running it through the cleaner immediately. This cocktail is in addition to the other new items she prescribed the first two days and in addition to most of the supplements I am already on. There were a few that were blocking which I will also post when I get my treatment plan.

Dr. D said that the anti-parasitics are really good for me right now and that Alinia, the last one I am supposed to take, is going to be great IF I can tolerate it. She said the Babesia will not like Alinia at all and some patients get chest pain or tightness, nausea, vomiting and other serious symptoms. In case I have a pretty severe reaction, she gave me her email address and cell phone number and said to let her know immediately if I get any of those symptoms so we can decide together whether I should continue or not.

Going forward she wants to talk on the phone once a month and if I can, she wants me to come back in person in July. She said at that point I could see Dr. K along with her and it was up to me. I told her that I would leave it up to her and we could decide later. Her concern was that he would be booked already so she said to go ahead and make an appointment with him for July and if necessary we could cancel it. Her concern is that I wouldn't be ready for Dr. K yet. She said I have made great progress but if I am not far enough along then his treatment will be too advanced and it would just be a waste of time and money. But she feels that I will be ready to see him if I can make it through the Alinia treatment. Right now I am still on Ivermectin and Pyrantel Pamoate, on 4/22 I start on Albenza, and on 5/20 I start on Alinia, 500 mg, three times a day, for 20 days. I hope it goes well.

Hi Kristina!

Great reading all of this.
Can you explain what an Ultrasonic cleaner is? How do you run this cocktail through it?
Also, what makes Dr K's treatment so advanced that you wouldn't be ready? Can you elaborate?

Can you please private email me. I am considering going to Seattle to see the docs and have many questions. Also would love to get feedback on your protocol. Thanks!

Hi Jodi,

An ultrasonic cleaner is just a jewelry cleaner. You just pour the Lyme cocktail into it and run it for 15 minutes.

Hi Jodi,

I forgot to answer your second question. From what I understand Dr. K is very aggressive in his treatment and if a patient is not ready they just can't tolerate everything he puts them on. At least that's what I gathered based on what Dr. D said to me.
