September 17, 2017

2 - 4 pm @ Utica Unitarian Church, Higby Road, Utica NY

During our regular LYME Support Group meeting.

 

Lisa is a Folk and Clinical herbalist and  has worked with folks with Lyme Disease and Lyme Co-infections for 12 years using herbal and nutritional protocols as well has having contracted Lyme disease twice herself. Based on her experience and practice, she believes Lyme to be a journey that is different for everyone making it important to customize protocols that align with the individual and their needs.
 
Lyme disease has become a major epidemic in the Northeast and Central New York making our desire to be outside in the fresh air hiking, gardening, and enjoying nature challenging, especially since many of us have already had a bout of Lyme disease or are still managing chronic Lyme. In this class Lisa will discuss common herbs that can support us in living with the various ways that Lyme may manifest both acutely and chronically as well as herbs for prevention, herbs to take if bitten, and protocols for Lyme disease and co-infections.

"People who are suffering with persistent Lyme disease or any of the other tick-borne diseases are under constant, unrelenting physical stress," explained Chris Fisk, President of the Lyme Action Network. "Stress and pain and illness begets more stress and pain, and it's vital for people to find ways to break the cycle to permit their bodies a chance begin healing.  There are many evidence-based strategies, grounded in science, that people can employ to give themselves -- and their over-taxed and over-stressed bodies, some relief and rest to help facilitate repair. We will be presenting and showcasing a number of these strategies throughout the day."
 
The Lyme Action Network has invited a team of experts in various fields to participate as presenters.  The presenters, all of whom have professional practices in the region and extensive experience with chronic illnesses, will include:
