My personal experience of living with Lyme Disease, my curious scientist brain and clinical practice of working with hundreds of clients with Lyme Disease led me to write and publish my upcoming book ‘Lyme in the Limelight’.
‘Lyme in the Limelight’ is out now, you can purchase by clicking, here.
What can you expect from the book?
‘Lyme in the Limelight’ book is made up of three parts.
In the first part of the book, I cover my own experience of living with a mysterious disease baffling doctors in the UK. Getting progressively unwell with symptoms ranging from severe muscle pain and cramps, intermittent insomnia, brain fog to non-epileptic seizures and temporary vision changes, I decide to travel all the way to Germany to seek an experimental treatment called ‘hyperthermia’ at the start of the Coronavirus pandemic.
In the second part, now on the way to recovery, and with my scientist ‘hat’ on, I delve into research of how Lyme Disease can trigger autoimmune diseases. This relatively new perspective has been overlooked when it comes to Lyme Disease treatment, which only focuses on the eradication of the bacteria. I believe this is a huge chunk of a missing puzzle piece as to why some people do not get well even though they might have eradicated the bacterial infection.
In the third part of the book, I present a tried and tested, easy to follow and science backed roadmap of how to manage Lyme-triggered autoimmunity through diet, supplements, herbs and lifestyle changes.
Why is this Book Important?
New Perspective – the book offers a new perspective of Lyme Disease triggered autoimmunity, which occurs in many people with the bacterial infection.
A ‘silent’ pandemic – with the backdrop of the very ‘noisy’ Coronavirus pandemic I uncover the fact that hundreds of thousands of people, as many as 2.8 million people just in the UK, may be living with the hard to diagnose disease. Many are worried about speaking up because of the stigma surrounding the disease.
Speaking Up – many people living with Lyme have been told that it is not possible to have all these symptoms, that they are mentally ill and that there is nothing that can help them. I had the urge to speak up about my own Lyme experience similar to the one of many other Lyme warriors I met along the way.
Comfort, validation, education and practical advice – the book has it all!
How am I qualified to give you advice included in the book?
I am a registered Nutritional Therapist, a complementary healthcare professional, who had to undertake a five-year MSc Degree in Personalised Nutritional and 1400 clinical practice hours before I qualified to do my job.
My approach is evidence based – meaning I look at existing peer reviewed research and ‘translate it’ into clinical practice. I am a published scientist myself.
In my clinic I specifically specialise in working with people with autoimmune disease, Lyme Disease and neurodegenerative conditions. I have seen hundreds of clients with Lyme Disease from all over the world.
Lastly, I have personally experienced living with three autoimmune conditions and Lyme Disease and co-infections. I can honestly say that I have walked a mile in the shoes of many of my Lyme clients!
