My Healing Journey So Far In Bali (Warning: Contains Graphic Details.)

IMG_3887

Hello there gorgeous readers.

Wow I have been in Bali for almost 6 weeks now! Time has absolutely flown by; it feels like a massive blur, a dream almost.

My time has been consumed by appointments with my doctor for ozone treatment (EBOO and ear infiltrations), glutathione, lipoic acid, collagen and vitamin c injections, massages, far infrared saunas, eating amazing, organic, raw whole foods, getting around Ubud with my scooter taxi and heading down to Kuta to trial Bioresonance therapy. I have had barely any time to breathe; it has been intense physically and emotionally.

Coming to this island alone has been so incredibly challenging, especially when dealing with a chronic illness. Booking to come here was a very impulsive decision, and I didn’t really think about how I would cope. Thankfully, I love my own company and spend a fair amount of time alone already, but being in a foreign country and undergoing quite invasive and intense treatment alone is another story altogether. I had massive expectations and ideals for the treatment here, but my experience has not met these. This is OK! I have let go of these expectations; they were not realistic and relevant to me, as an individual.

I visualised myself bouncing around with an abundance of energy and vitality after 2 or 3 treatments, but the reality for me after doing 10 EBOOs and ear infiltrations so far with 2 to go is that my herxes actually worsened over this period.

My doctor is very cautious and started my ozone concentration on the lowest amount. As he increased the concentration I noticed a stronger herx.

I have also been rifing for Candida, parasites, Lyme, Bartonella and Babesia as well as taking Ozonide Para-rizol and trialling Bioresonance therapy. I have gone overboard and my body is freaking out!!

I also had a massive set back on my trip. In my second week here I got a parasitic infection that caused diarrhea, chills, worsened fatigue and weakness. I saw Dr Peggy at Alchemy in Penestanan and began Ozonide Para-rizol. I thought with all the antimicrobials and probiotics I take I would avoid this, but I realised many of my poor hygiene habits were not serving me well, primarily biting my nails!!

I knew I had to give this habit up when coming to an underdeveloped, foreign country with poor sanitation, but in recent months my nail biting had gone to a whole new level, and I mean extremely obsessive compulsive, not being able to sleep for hours at night because I could NOT take my hands out of my mouth! I am being very open here.

After 5 days of diarrhea I was trying to sleep at night with an uncomfortable backside. I instinctively knew I had to do an enema. So to the bathroom I went to perform this procedure. After doing the implant I immediately felt a strong urge to go to the toilet. To my surprise, when sitting up from the toilet seat I found I had passed 50 + worms from my colon.

I screamed!!! I yelled! I could not believe me eyes. It was so confronting! But people, this is reality! After this experience I have come to realise how common parasitic infections truly are. These worms were not from Bali, they had to be at least 3 months old because of their size. Do you know what one of the many symptoms of having parasites are…. nail biting! I have not touched my nails since, and they are looking spectacular, for the first time in my life.

A couple of days later the parasitic infection I acquired in Bali seemed to be becoming slightly milder. However I woke up early one morning with some discomfort still present. I did another enema and afterwards felt an intense urge to go to the toilet. I still felt very ill and was experiencing diarrhoea, but this time I went to the toilet it looked like my lower colon mucosal lining had come out. I freaked out a little, which did not help. I then started experiencing excruciating pain and blood started flowing out of my colon… A LOT! I tried to keep calm, I called for help and went to a local clinic at 6 am, trying to consult with a Balinese doctor whilst running to the toilet every few minutes to pass blood and a little diarrhoea. I had a lot gas building in my colon, which was pressing on my wounded colon causing excruciating pain. He prescribed drugs, but I was not convinced I would need to take them. I then went to the ozone clinic at 10 am where I was meant to get EBOO and ear infiltrations but because of the bleeding Dr Chandra advised we just do the ear infiltration not the EBOO as it thins the blood. After the treatment I lay in the clinic for a couple of hours, running to the toilet every 15 minutes, I was scared to go home alone. I was so weak and pale. Eventually I made it home.

My pain was escalating and I continued to bleed, I was yelling prayers from my bungalow!! My mouth was so dry as well (I assume because of dehydration, but also loosing the mucosal layer/moisture from my colon.) I skyped my family in Australia, but could barely speak at that stage and had to be on the toilet most of the time. I am in agony!

I eventually contacted my doctor again from the ozone clinic and asked what I should do, it seemed to be getting worse. I was so scared. I had lost a lot of blood by the afternoon and I was not sure whether anyone was taking it very seriously.

He said he would drive me to the hospital in Kuta. The 2 hour drive to find a hospital was hell and I had to stop off at some random Balinese family compound to relieve the pain caused by gas and any passing faecal matter and blood. They didn’t have toilet paper… but eventually found some facial wipes for me to use.

Eventually we found a relatively new hospital named Siloam in Kuta. I was so lucky to have my doctor with me so he could tell them what had happened and to make sure I got the best care. They were really lovely, thorough and ran many tests immediately. Better care than I had received in an Australian hospital.

They hooked me up to a drip to receive electrolytes and asked for a sample of my stool. They found the parasite Entamoeba Histolytica in my stool which can cause symptoms such as dysentery, bloody diarrhea, weight loss, fatigue and abdominal pain. The amoeba can actually pierce its way into the intestinal wall, causing damage and intestinal symptoms, and from there it can make its way into the blood stream. It can then reach various vital organs, but it does generally prefer to infect the liver. The specialist said the parasite must of been damaging my colon over the week leading up to my hospitalisation to the point where it eventually became a serious wound. Within half an hour they had my blood test results, which showed very high white blood cell count, very low red blood cell count, low electrolyes and difficulty with blood clotting. My doctor had called in a friend of his who was an internal specialist doctor, he assessed me and told me I would need to have intravenous antibiotics, another drug the stop the bleeding, another drug to stop the inflammation, another drug to stop the pain! Oh and maybe another drug to sleep. By this stage I had completely surrendered to the situation I was in, to the drugs and put my complete trust in the doctors. I just wanted the bleeding and the pain to stop. The pain and bleeding continued into the night, but thankfully by early morning it appeared the bleeding was easing and so was the pain.

I was told I had to stay for another 2 nights. Which I resisted initally, but I did not want to risk getting worse again, so I listened and obeyed. The antibiotics were already causing a candida overgrowth, my tongue had a thick white and green coating.

The food in the hospital was average at best, and because of my wounded colon all I could stomach was a little liquified food. I was lucky to convince the nurses to let me order deliveries from a local organic café. I managed to get my green smoothie fix and some soup.

After 3 nights in hospital I was getting a bit of strength back and I was told I could leave. I was still very wiped out but my stomach was feeling better.

I then continued on with my treatments at Bali ozone clinic and got back to daily Ubud life.

I reacted adversely to one of the oral antibiotics the doctor had given me after leaving hospital, which I later discovered was a quinolone. It caused shortness of breath, tight chest and a cramping body. Magnesium seemed to do the trick though. I was told antibiotics can drain minerals from the body.

After continuing with further ozone treatments after my hospital stay, I have been convinced that the ozone therapy has kicked my immune system fair into gear. My body is so overwhelmed right now it is hard to truly tell what is happening. My doctor said that it may take 3 weeks after my last EBOO ozone for everything to settle and to see true results not clouded by toxicity. My body is feeling incredibly exhausted and toxic.

I promise to keep you all informed on my progress over the coming weeks and months. But my next post I want to dedicated to the incredible lessons I have learned on this trip. There have been many! The guidance of an amazing spiritual teacher has made this trip all the more easier. I want to share how overnight my approach to healing and to life has changed dramatically. These lessons have made me so much more accepting of my unique journey and experience on this trip to Bali.

Love and blessings until next time,

Amy x

  1. Wow Amy, thanks for sharing your experience in Bali. I have been wondering how you are and was hoping that you were making good progress. It seems that existence has had other plans. What an intense journey you have had, I am sorry to hear that you have had to suffer so much! I hope it gets much easier from here on. I got so much better going to Bali and appear to have cleared Lyme. It just goes to show that the same treatments can have very different results for different people. Lyme is still in my life too as my beautiful partner and son have both just tested positive. My son is asymptomatic, however, my partner is very ill and her symptoms are completely different to what mine were. It is such a confounding condition and everyone has to navigate their own path through it. Wishing you well. Much love, Anand xx

    • Thank you for your comment Anand! I am so sorry to hear about your partner and son testing positive. It is so bizarre how it can cause such unique symptoms. My sister and I have some similarities but many differences too.
      I have no doubt the ozone has been working its magic on me, but just a bit strong for me. Sometimes I would herx almost immediately and couldn’t leave the clinic ha.. I am thinking for my final 2 weeks I will stick to ear infiltrations and I found somewhere that has an ozone sauna. I am looking into possibly trying to do some ear, rectal and sauna ozone in Australia. Might have to save for a machine. I think low and slow is going to be best for me at the moment.
      Much love to you and your family x

  2. Oh Amy!! What an experience to go through, I was SO relieved to get to the end and hear you haven’t had any major setbacks. You are amazing for getting through such a tough situation on your own. Looking forward to hearing about this spiritual teacher 🙂

  3. Amy flower, can you wait a minute while i pick my jaw up off the floor!! I can’t believe what a journey you’ve been on. I want to say nightmare but i’m sure glittered lessons are woven through the fabric of your experience. All the same, my heart ached for you. I can’t believe you were going through all that alone. And scared. With none of us there. I want to say ‘Don’t ever leave home again!’..
    Can I?
    Thank goodness Myke and Tara are over there in a few days. Sounds like your well on the way to ‘well’ again anyway but it’s comforting to know you’ll be in warm, loving company. Can’t wait to you get home sweet pea. Take care. I love you x

  4. Amy may I send personal email to? I am interested into this treatment but for other ailments. I don’t understand why someone has to stay for a month or longer? Especially when I have to work? Thanks in advance D.

  5. Hi Amy. I am very interested in understanding your experience with EBOO because I can’t find it in the states and I am trying to figure how much would it cost to stay in Bali for a month treatment, let alone being off from work for a month. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

    • Hey David.
      I am surprised you cannot find it in the states, there are a lot of doctors who practise it over there. I am not sure about the EBOO though. But rectal, ear insufflations, saunas, major and minor autohemotherapy are really effective too. I would not personally do EBOO again as it was too harsh for me.

  6. Hi amy,
    I have lyme disease too and would like to know if rifing is something that you would recommend. Has it been effective for you and can you give any advice on which machine you would recommend?

    • Hello Tereza.
      I have been rifing on and off for a year or so. I found it caused very severe herxes for me initially.
      I cannot say if it has made a difference or not I am sorry because I have been doing so many things at the same time.
      But I think it has its benefit when combined with other therapies.
      I use a GB 4000.

  7. Wow, a friend passed this onto me. Im interested to know how much hyhydrogen peroxide you used in your enema. Are you still in Ubud? I’ve got some parasites and going through a cleanse at the mom. Sounds like a horrific exxperience and very scary. Brave lady x

    • Hey Kirsty. I am in Australia now. Yes it was quite a traumatic trip. I was in Ubud for 2 months. A year ago now. I probably used about a tablespoon of 6% diluted in filtered water. Which the doctors didn’t believe was enough to cause that degree of damage. They thought it was because I had entamoeba histolytica for about a week prior and the parasite eats away at the colon wall. I think it was the straw that broke the camels back type thing, a combination of both. Don’t ever do it! I hope your cleanse is going well! xoxo

      • So pleased to hear from you and glad you wrote of your experience, there are so many people that can benefit from it, despite it being so traumatic for you. How is your health now? I’m genuinely interested to know. Much love to you x

  8. Hi Amy; I am looking at taking my good friend to Bali for treatments of her Lyme and mold infections. Was it at Dr C’s clinic you got your treatments – if yes, would you generally say that they were competent and caring at the clinic? Do they generally have favorable results with Lymies there? Many hugs Jef

    • Hey Jef! I apologise for the late reply. Yes it was Dr Chandra who I saw in Ubud. He also has a clinic in Kuta.
      They were absolutely very competent and caring! Such beautiful people. I felt very safe. Dr Chandra is very cautious.
      They seem to have good results. For me I did not react positively because I had not addressed heavy metals and parasites
      first which is crucial.
      With love, Amy

  9. I have taken EBOO therapy in Bali too. I made a review of the place for my site. Have you heard of Spooky2 Rife system? It may help in getting rid of parasites. I cured Ascaris lumbricoides with it. I have good settings for it on my page if you are interested to look it up.

    For gut issues like leaky gut Biotin, Zinc-carnosin and glutamine will do good. And MSM if you can handle it without loosing sleep.

    And for heavy metals I recommend Cutler’s mercury detox protocol.
