Lyme Awareness: Symptoms, Causes and Treatments
Nov 02, 2015 12:43PM
Jeannie Peck, traditional naturopath and functional nutrition clinician, will offer a free, educational presentation about Lyme disease from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., November 11, at Health by Design Natural Clinic, in Leola. Call to reserve a seat.
“I have seen so many families affected by this elusive disease and it’s devastating,” says Peck. “Often, those that feel they may have Lyme disease have been met with more questions than answers in their quest for help. How to determine the best course of action to address the symptoms this disease can induce can be challenging. Treatments are varied and may include combinations of antibiotics, homeopathy, herbal tinctures and detoxification programs.”
Muscle and joint pain, anxiety, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, gastrointestinal disorders, heart and lung conditions, and depression—all of which may be symptoms of Lyme infections—can mimic many other health conditions. The presentation will include information regarding various options that patients suffering from Lyme have available to them, including how and when to get tested, which test to request and choosing the right health professional.
