Is it Lyme Disease or an Autoimmune Condition?

This week we explore Lyme Disease and how often it is misdiagnosed as an autoimmune condition. As our guest, Dr. Julia Greenspan knows all too well, having recovered from Lyme herself. One surprise she shares is, ‘you don’t have to see a tick on you or the circular, outwardly expanding rash common with infection to have contracted Lyme.’ She also shares her expert insights on:

* How many symptoms are misunderstood in determining is it a microbe or autoimmune.
* How to get beyond the label of ‘trend disease’ and get help.
* The relationship between Lyme disease, other tick-borne infections to autoimmune disease.
* Ways one can decrease inflammation in the body to avoid the autoimmune response.
* Plus much more…

Dr. Julia Greenspan is a naturopathic doctor and author of the book “Rising Above Lyme Disease.” Dr. Greenspan is a Lyme Literate Doctor with a majority of her patients having some form of the tick-borne disease. Her focus in this area of medicine stems from living in New England, one of the most infected and infested areas in the country for Lyme disease and her struggles to recover from Lyme.

She has been listed in the Top Doctor’s Reader’s Poll with New Hampshire Magazine several times and interviewed as an expert on tick-borne illnesses on TV, radio, podcasts and in print media. Dr. Greenspan’s website is www.greenhousemedicine.com. Listen to this compelling interview first on Friday, February 1st and later in a podcast.
