Fall 2018 Newsletter -  Issue #55
How time flies!  It's been almost four months since the last newsletter.  I have so many things to share with you.

One of the highlights of the summer was having the opportunity to go paddle boarding for the first time.  It was super fun, and I can't wait to go again.

The podcast continues to be a focus and something I am really enjoying doing.  I hope that you are finding it informative and helpful on your own journey to better health.

Thanks for your ongoing interest and support!

In Better Health,
Townsend Letter Article

I was honored to have my article  Casting a Broad Net to Maximize Lyme Disease Recovery published in the July 2018 edition of Townsend Letter.

In it, I cover some of the key areas that may warrant exploration in recovering health from chronic Lyme disease including:
  • Reducing the impact of negative thought patterns and past emotional traumas and conflicts
  • Eliminating environmental mold and biotoxin exposures
  • Optimizing nutrition and improving GI health
  • Stabilizing mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS)
  • Detoxifying the body and improving the terrain
  • Reducing exposure to EMR/EMFs
  • Supporting kryptopyrroluria (KPU)
  • Addressing parasites
  • Supporting the body against other microbial overgrowths
  • Identifying dental contributors to chronic illness
  • Rewiring limbic system impairment.

Klinghardt 2018
Dr. Klinghardt taught his ART 3 course in September in Seattle.  

While I've been to this course eight times, I always learn something new, and this event certainly did not disappoint.

Throughout the weekend, Dr. Klinghardt shared so much great information. I attempted to capture much of it to share with you.  

Dr. Klinghardt has been my primary mentor for almost 13 years, and I can't imagine my healing journey without his influence.

My notes from the conference are available for review.

Dr. Neil Nathan's New Book
Dr. Neil Nathan, MD has been one of my mentors for years and someone I very much admire and respect.

His latest book is  Toxic: Heal Your Body from Mold Toxicity, Lyme Disease, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, and Chronic Environmental Illness.

It is a fantastic read and explores mold illness, Lyme and co-infections (with a particular focus on Bartonella), Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, Cell-Danger Response, and many other relevant and important topics.

This is a book I wish I had when my personal journey started almost 22 years ago.  It is empowering and hopeful!

Life After Lyme

Life After Lyme is a new book from Kristin Clague Reihman, MD.  

She experienced her own personal struggle with Lyme and shares:

"If you or someone you care about is struggling to recover from Lyme disease, read on. Having experienced Lyme disease three times, I know the suffering it can cause...and also the way out. I've pulled together everything useful that I've learned along the way into a straightforward, easy to follow, step-by-step guide to recover from Lyme and the co-infections. My heartfelt wish is to reach all those out there who suffer from this disease and teach them everything they need to know to recover fully. I want you to be able to get back to living your amazing life."
