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 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.
