Lyme Savvy: a one-of-a-kind collaboration between patient and doctor

In 2009, Sharon was diagnosed with Bartonella and Babesia, co-infections of Lyme disease. The final blow was becoming almost bedridden with back and knee pain. Four months later, after visiting a dozen different doctors she found the RIGHT doctor who diagnosed her with late stage chronic Lyme disease. Her passions include writing and educating the public about the proper diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease, but she still finds time for reading, needlepoint and knitting.

In this episode you will learn:

  1. About Sharon Rainey’s new book, Lyme Savvy
  2. Changing the vocabulary around classifying Lyme disease
  3. Scheduling downtime into your treatment protocol
  4. Being emotionally prepared for your healing journey

The relationship between Doctor and patient is a critical part of healing from chronic illnesses like Lyme Disease. The partnership between Sharon and her physician, Dr. Robert Mozayeni is an inspiration for patient and well as practitioners.

Many scientific breakthroughs happen unexpectedly. The most famous example is the accidental discovery of penicillin. By including experts from field outside of the Lyme community, I hope to keep our thinking fresh.
