May is Lyme disease awareness month. If you have heard my story you know we have a real problem with testing, diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease. If you have not heard my story please listen to it here or read about it here. I wanted to do something for the Lyme community this month. I decided to give away one free Nutritional Therapy appointment every month til the end of the year. I shared my idea with my friend Susan and she suggested I have people donate $5 to a Lyme charity to support them too. I loved her idea! It is a win win for the people suffering with Lyme and the charities who work tiredly to support Lyme patients. Together we chose Lyme Warrior and Oregon Lyme Disease Network. The Oregon Lyme Disease Network has a special place in my heart. I called them 13 years ago when I got my first positive Lyme disease test and doctors refused to treat me. The President of OLDN Theresa showed up at my doctors with tons of research and loving support. Because of them I finally got treatment. I am now a support group facilitator for OLDN! We chose Lyme Warrior becasue all around they are an awesome non-profit supporting the Lyme community. Both of these charities are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your donation is tax deductible. Please share this post with your friends and help me make a difference.

I am offering one free Initial Interview to one chosen Lyme disease patient every month for the rest of the the year. That is eight free appointments. I do not treat Lyme disease. I educate and empower you to find the best foods and supplements to support your healing alongside the protocol you and your doctor have chosen. The patients I choose must be working actively with a LLMD, LLND or functional medicine practitioner.
