Join us for an evening discussion with Lyme disease specialist Dr. Sunjya Schweig and Lyme patient Nancy Chimsky
Recovering from tick-borne illnesses can be aided through carefully devised combinations of conventional and functional medicine, tailored to the individual person. In this meeting, Dr. Schweig will discuss the top four lifestyle areas critical to recovery and explain how and why optimizing each area is key to treating and managing Lyme and tick-borne disease. The lifestyle areas are:
- Diet and nutrition
- Stress reduction and neuroplasticity
Dr. Schweig will also discuss the important role that botanical and herbal medicines have in recovery. There will be an open discussion about what people are doing in their own lives to manage their health, and Dr. Schweig will provide practical suggestions and concrete takeaways.
Nancy Chimsky is a semi-retired interior designer who has been challenged with chronic Lyme disease issues since 1997 but was only diagnosed in the fall of 2010. Due to severe allergies to most antibiotics, she required naturopathic approaches to manage and treat her condition and symptoms. Nancy is passionate about helping others challenged with chronic Lyme disease and other chronic illnesses and will share her Lyme journey at the event.
