From the age of 14, I started having bizarre neurological symptoms. I went from doctor to doctor trying to figure out what was wrong with me, but it took me 8 years to get an answer.
I was finally told I have Lyme disease.
I went on to find a Lyme literate medical doctor who successfully treated me for about 4.5 years.
After my treatment with him, I was told to "be free and fly" but I still had major issues with my immune system. I had worked so hard to complete my treatment but I was missing something.
I had spent over four years confined to my house doing my Lyme treatment so constantly catching every cold or stomach bug was not okay with me. I sought out a new doctor to help me with my immune system. I found a clinic in Reno, Nevada that specialized in Functional Medicine and Chiropractic Neurology. I was hooked! I couldn’t believe the transformation I experienced and those around me were experiencing!
I wish I would have found a Functional Medicine doctor before beginning my Lyme treatment. I believe I would have saved so much time and money if I had worked on making my body strong first by focusing on the root components of health like diet, stress, sleep, elimination, movement, etc. Treating my body with the bug killers would have been much easier if I had been in a stronger state to begin with.
After following the protocol from my Functional Medicine doctor, I was no longer at the mercy of my body...I was in control! As long as I ate well, slept enough and kept my stress down I was nearly unstoppable. I now I help others figure out this balance so they can achieve optimum health too!
