Betsy’s Lyme Detox Unleashes Shingles and Poison Ivy

by Betsy Thomason, BODs steward

I’m detoxing from Lyme with the help of a magnet therapist. Because I’ve had the Lyme bacteria in my body for 30 years, the therapy is ongoing. 


Shingles and systemic poison ivy kept me company for two weeks in July, triggered by my own exuberance—I detoxed from Lyme too fast. But, my wonderful body was over and done with shingles and poison ivy in less than two weeks, thanks to homeopathy, herbal and mushroom tinctures, a few supplements, sitz baths with epsom salt and baking soda, and the BreatheOutDynamic system (BODs), of course. 

BODs helped me to relax deeply despite the incessant itching, and to have confidence in my body’s innate healing ability. BODs has taught me that my body is intelligent and responsive to positive thoughts and actions. This was certainly true of my shingles/systemic poison ivy experience. Thanks to BODs, I continue to enjoy being outside and will not let fear of Lyme ticks interfere with my life. 


I’m well and looking forward to traveling to two conferences this fall, in addition to my 60th high school reunion in Belmont, Massachusetts. 


Do you have a BODs story?

Let’s share it with the world. Be in touch.

Do you know someone with ALS or any motor neuron disease, such as Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson’s? Are you looking for hope to overcome dis-ease? Want to learn from others who have said goodbye to wheelchairs, trachs, and invasive mechanical ventilation? This conference could change your life. 

The speakers include medical doctors and dentists who help people detoxify and reverse ALS symptoms, as well as eight people who share their journeys reversing their medically-diagnosed ALS. At the conference, I am offering private and group breathing coaching. I look forward to seeing you at the Healing ALS conference in Salt Lake City.
