Update on IPAC Treatments

Joni was doing so well with her other treatments that she thought she'd try a new one today.  If she was by my side while I typed that last sentence, I'm sure I'd have sore ribs about now.  When I report that she is doing well with her treatments what I mean is that she came through them better than we expected.  The treatments are like the diseases that they are fighting in that you really don't know when the reactions will rear their ugly heads.  Some people go through a difficult time at the beginning, some in the middle, and some at the end.  We take each day of treatments as a blessing for healing and if Joni happens to come through feeling well enough to get around that is even a greater blessing.

IPAC stands for Insulin Potentiated Antibiotics with Chelodinine.  Wow! I'm not even sure I spelled that correctly.  As I wrote earlier this is a delivery system used in cancer and lyme disease patients to get antibiotics past the blood brain barrier and into places where the bacterias and viruses like to hide.  If you research it, you will find negative things written about it just like you would with most of the alternative treatments that are used. As I also mentioned before, many of the alternative treatments in the USA are not at all alternative in most parts of the world.  Hopefully we will catch up in these areas someday.  I'm not convinced of that when I remember the Scriptures teaching us that the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.  I actually get nervous about all the side effects that are listed for the prescriptions people use.  They are scarier than the side effects of these alternative treatments yet most people don't even think a thing about them.  That leads to another funny story about going to get a prescription filled for Joni.  I was taken back a little when the price rang up for $54.00 for 28 pills.  That seemed high but I left with the pills and began discussing my purchase with Joni.  She reminded me that I could get generic ones cheaper but I had failed to tell the pharmacist I would take the generic ones.  I went back to the counter to see if I could swap them out but was informed that the ones I had were the cheaper ones and were discounted even further by her.  I started to think back at the last time I had purchased drugs and I could not remember.  It has been at least 11 years or more that I have stood in line to purchase prescription drugs.  This is by the grace of God and a loving wife and mother who has saved our family countless money by not only keeping us out of the barbershop but also off prescription drugs.  She has a remedy for everything.  Her tireless efforts have reaped great rewards.

We are getting daily reports of peoples' health being totally changed by these methods that are not practiced throughout our country.  I was so saddened when my mom spoke of a dear friend who has suffered through a multitude of devastating health issues over the years to the point where he doesn't even want to see another doctor.  It is this type of person that a true lyme literate medical doctor can help.  Most patients at the clinics we have been to in Scottsdale have sacrificed everything to be here.  Some have sold their homes, parents have cashed in their retirements and a host of other stories I could share.  They look at these treatments as being their last hope for a better quality of life.  We have an even greater hope than that but boy it would be wonderful to have these treatments return some life to Joni.  Anyway, these IPAC treatments have the potential to really take you for a loop and Joni was not spared.  She actually went through the one hour process pretty good except for being extremely tired but then things began to happen.  She said many of the areas that have caused severe pain over the years hit her full force for awhile.  To my amazement she was actually rejoicing over this reaction because she believes the medicines are reaching the very areas where she needs them to go.  She was able to walk out of the clinic and get in the car but when we were walking into the hotel she just laid down on the sidewalk and didn't want to go on.  Kristalyn and I got her up to our room where the pain and complete exhaustion continued.  Thankfully she is doing much better now and resting comfortably. Well, much better than before.  She is scheduled to go through 11 more of this particular "special" treatments.  Pray that things go better in the days ahead.

We had a gentleman come by and pray with us tonight.  He is from the area and is friends with some of ours.  Here is a man that showed the love and compassion of Christ in that he didn't even know us but paid us a visit.  Boy do I have a lot to learn from him and others who reflect our Savior.  Thanks go out also to Mandi and John Sauve who came to visit last week.  What a great visit we had.  Along with the visits we continue to get many cards from all over.  Some come from dear friends while others come from people we hardly know, but the love and concern expressed in each one is very special to us.  Thank you all for making our time here as good as it can be.

We look forward to tomorrow when Joni will take some routine treatments.  Pray for strength and healing.  We continue to get opportunities to share our faith.  It's pretty easy to share our testimony after someone is amazed that I look too young to have 12 kids.  Let me correct that.  It's pretty easy to share our testimony after someone is amazed that Joni looks too young to have 12 kids.  I don't want to steal her thunder.   God is good.  Our lives are nothing more than a testimony of the Giver of Grace.  We enjoy sharing what He has done for us.  Next time I hope to share with you how much people have financially invested in out trip and what is needed.  Sleep well everyone and may the peace of God which passes all understanding keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Phil 4:7
