Yolanda Foster is staying strong and is keeping a positive attitude while she seeks for a cure for the debilitating effects of Lyme disease. Last week, "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star shared a photo on Instagram, updating her followers about the latest treatment she tried.
Yolanda posted a picture of herself inside a contraption covered with a metallic fabric, and only her head is visible as her body is enclosed by the machine. She captioned it, "Another glamorous day at the office…#HeavyMetalDetox #Chelation #PortableInfraRedSauna #ChronicNeuroLymeDisease."
Based on the hashtags on the post, Yolanda underwent a heavy metal detox treatment called Chelation therapy when the picture was taken. According to PublicHealthAlert.org, those who have Lyme tend to have higher levels of toxic heavy metals such as lead and mercury in the body. High levels of toxic heavy metals can be an immunity suppressant, which can result in the slowing down of the body's ability to heal.
Earlier this month, she underwent a stem cell transplant in Germany in another attempt to beat the debilitating effects of chronic Lyme disease. After her treatment, she spent some time in her native home in Holland. The former model posted a picture during her trip home to remind herself and encourage others who are suffering from the disease to stay strong and to never give up.
The shot shows Yolanda dressed in a cream colored sweater and white pants with her face devoid of makeup. In the picture, the model is hugging a cross decorated with white and yellow roses, and it was captioned, "The moment you're ready to quit is usually the moment right before a miracle happens…#NotetoSelf #DontGiveUp #HoldOnTight #HaveFaith."
It is unsure whether Yolanda will be back for the upcoming season of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" as it has been reported that her husband, David Foster, is encouraging her to slow down so she can focus on getting well. As of the moment, there is no known cure or treatment for Lyme disease.
