Are there any Lyme-patients who follow a Paleoish/Primal diet? I'm a Lymie myself and love to get to know other Lymies to exchange thoughts about diet,treatments/protocols,exercise and other routines.
On Rob Wolff's site there actually was a story of a former Lymie. I've tried to get in contact with him,but no such luck.

Hey Joey. I have cared for 5 or 6 patients with Lyme disease and have had some awesome results but some cases are definitely tougher than others. The folks that have had the most success come for regular weekly chiropractic adjustments to help their nervous system function optimally and allow for proper joint stimulation. One guy in particular is mostly pain free and can now get back to his job as a tree removal dude (not great if you are trying to avoid tics but physical none the less). All of them have responded well to a grain-free, dairy free, legume free diet. So that leaves pastured meats, free range chicken/eggs, wild fish, veggies, lower fructose containing fruits like berries grapefruit and melon, and good fats like coconut/olive oil/avocado etc. I think avoiding nuts as much as you can is a smart thing to do also since they can be problematic with immune challenges like Lyme. Be as physical as you can without hurting yourself, I recommend sticking to mostly gymnastic type stuff like pushups, pullups, situps, squats, etc. It seems like you're a positive person too which is super critical with a problem like Lyme since it can be a very frustrating deal.
