Updated January 2018
When I originally started my site in April 2014, I had no idea 6 months later I’d be traveling to Germany for thymus and stem cell treatment at Infuiso. I thought I would mostly write about my homesteading adventures. I was excited to connect with other homesteaders, gardeners, and beekeepers and learn from them. Instead, my site has mostly focused on my treatment at Infusio and how I’ve been doing since.
I am happy that I was able to provide more information about thymus and stem cell treatment for Lyme. At the time I had treatment (October 2014), the only Infusio location was in Frankfurt and stem cells for Lyme weren’t even an option in US. Now in 2018, there are several options in the US and worldwide, it is truly amazing!
Over the past 3 years, I have personally spoken who a multitude of people via phone and have corresponded with many via email. At one point, I was have 3-4 calls per week and those calls averaged 1-2 hours and I answered several in depth emails a week. It quickly became too much for one person, especially when I still had to manage our homestead, attend nutrition school, explore alternative family building, update my blog, and deal with some minor health issues!
One thing I noticed is almost every time I talked or emailed with someone, very few people had actually read the content I worked hard to share on my site. 😦
It seemed most read my recent post and then contacted to me to talk. I would spend 1-2 hours on the phone restating almost everything already covered on my blog. This eventually became annoying!
I understand it is always nice to have someone to talk with one on one. I literally was only able to fine 2 people who’d been to Infusio before I had to make my decision to have treatment. Now, there are several Facebook groups and many others blogging about stem cells.
Based on my experience during the past 3 years, I decided the best way for me to be sure people spent the time my blog before reaching out to talk is to charge a small fee for phone calls. I’m not doing this because I need the income, I hope the fee will weed out people who aren’t willing to take time to read the content I’ve spent hundreds of hours comprising.
Therefore, effective January 2018, I will be charging $25 per hour if you’d like to chat via phone or $25 per email reply. I am still happy to talk or email with you, I just hoping charging a fee will encourage people to read my content first before contacting me to ask questions that are answered here. I promise, a majority of your questions can be found on my blog.
Reading my updates, my Q&A posts, and the posts I wrote while in Germnay should answer most questions. I’ve included links to my most recent posts here:
