Infuiso – Day Four and Five

4 Comments

Wow, I’ve completed a week of treatments, it’s gone by fast! So far I’m still feeling pretty good.

I’ve had a mild rash breakout on most of my face and neck. Thankfully the bumps are really tiny, and not very red or itchy. I’ve had this type of rash on and off in the past, but it’s been at least a year since it last appeared. I’ve also been more tired than usual since the stem cell blood draw. I’m not sure if it’s related to the treatments, or because lack of sleep.

I haven’t been sleeping well because the location of our room in the Couva Boarding House is “interesting.” We are on the ground floor, in the handicap room near the main entrance, and the bedroom wall is shared with the community kitchen.

Many people let the door near the bedroom wall slam upon entering, which has woken me up a few times. Wednesday night, there were several people having beer and cooking between 10 -11:30 pm. Now, if I was here on vacation I probably would have joined in the fun, but that morning I was up at 5 am so I was ready for bed early!

I had a nice conversation at lunch on Thursday with a local, and learned this time of year is extremely crowded and busy because of the annual Frankfurt book fair. It’s the worlds largest trade fair for books. Every other room at Couva besides this handicap one has been booked for months! Normally, we would have stayed in the Infusio apartments the entire time, but those were booked as well. I guess that’s what I get for making last-minute plans 🙂

Next week, we will move into an apartment at Infusio. Although I will miss the location of Couva, I’m looking forward to some restful sleep, and having a bathtub! If you ever find yourself Frankfurt, I would consider staying at Couva, just not in this particular room. The person I spoke to on Thursday said Couva is located in the nicest neighborhood in Frankfurt. I would have to agree, its full of wonderful cafes, restaurants, and local shops.

That’s about all that’s being happening besides my treatments. Here’s what I was infused with on days four and five.

Day 4 – 3 1/2 hours

  • Dioxychlor, and procaine/bicarbonate infusions.
  • Homeopathic and thymus injections

Day 5 – 3 hours

  • Dioxychlor, amino acids, and Myers cocktail infusions
  • Homeopathic and thymus injections

Today, the four patients who arrived two weeks ago finished their treatments. They were being treated for various chronic issues, and one was being treated for late stage Lyme. On Monday, one new patient arrives.

I have the weekend off, and since I’m feeling good we are heading to Paris to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. It’s a place I didn’t think we’d ever visit, so I’m very excited!


 If you’d like to know more about my Infusio experience, please contact me. I’m happy to speak with you via phone, or connect via email.

  1. Have fun in Paris!!!

  2. Congrats on finishing your 1st week! Enjoy Paris….and Happy Early Anniversary xoxo

  3. Glad to hear it’s going well. Wishing you a Happy Anniversary, and a good night’s rest!

  4. I came across your blog, after talking to Chrystie (who’s a friend of a friend and lives in my area). She told me all about Infusio, and DR Phil, and also DR Cole. Doing a little research led me to your blog, and I am really enjoying hearing about your experiences in Germany, and even your gardening back home! I have chronic Lyme, and of course many health issues because of that.
    Is there anywhere on your blog (maybe I just need to do more searching), where you talk about the different health issues/symptoms you have because of your lyme?
    Thanks so much!! I now look forward to getting updates on your blog in my inbox 🙂
    God Bless…Diane Dahlin
