so what are these treatments?
This is the treatment she's currently saving up $40,000 for: https://www.klinik-st-georg.de/en/klinik-st-georg/lyme-specialized-center/

It's not offered here in the United States. She and many others claim that this is because (((Big Pharma))) has a vested interest in withholding a cure to Lyme Disease, and that offering effective treatment wouldn't be profitable for (((Medical Insurance Companies.))) So, really hardcore Lyme munchies go to this place in Germany, where you pay tens of thousands of dollars to sit in a sauna until your temperature reaches 107°F. Afterwards, they treat you to a "detoxification" regimen that consists of pretty much all the standard quackery you see in the Detox / Alternative Medicine thread.

Temperature of 107? Nope nope nope nope.
I love how they keep it right under 110 which is where you have to be hospitalized, at least in North America. I assume the body temp you're supposed to be hospitalized in varies by country to country but it can't be too different there. I'm sure munchies love that place cause they likely actually get seriously ill from going there

Also what do you mean “country to country”? Humans stay around 98.7 degrees (give or take a bit) no matter their location.

I didn't mean the actual temperature of a person there, just the fever level which a person is forced to go to a hospital at haha. I had a coworker be forced to go to the hospital instead of sent home because their fever was around 110 and later the boss said by 110 they were legally obligated as an establishment to send them to the ER. I assume different countries have different rulings on when an establishment is forced to send people to the ER based on their fever. Granted it's possible this was a company policy but I'm hoping it's a government thing due to places like munchie paradise

That person lied to you, you get admitted immediately at 106-107, for heat stroke if anything.

They use those extra high temps to show how CRITICAL! and REAL! their illness is, though it's unlikely but I guess not impossible.

I'm going to market special thermometers that only read over 104. They will be designated as extra sensitive to detect CHRONIC LYME and FIBRO and CANDIDA OVERGROWTH and EDS and that paralyzed stomach thing. They will be super duper expensive and only work rectally. Does anyone want to go on Shark Tank with me?

I love how quack med always eventually involves shoving something up your ass.

I went to the ER with a temp of 106.9. Was sent home with antibiotics after an hour. No admission.
Here we admit adults at 107.6, kids at 105.4 and infants at 101.2.

I've seen temps as high as 110 but that's usually exogenous hyperthermia (like heat stroke) and patients are seizing and hallucinating at that point. Like, there'd be something very obviously wrong with the dude before you even took his temp.

I was 14 years old. No obvious signs of anything. Wasn’t sick, felt fine. It was December and the temps were in the 20s. Even at that age I found it disturbing that no tests were run. They said take these antibiotics and the fever should go away. Luckily, it did.
