Episode #157: Ruschelle Khanna, LCSW - Lyme Literate Therapy

In this episode you will learn:

  • How Ruschelle used Chinese Medicine to cure her Lyme Disease
  • How lyme became a transformative experience to heal spiritually as well as physically
  • And her frustration with the MDs she went to that inspired her to create a course to teach social workers about the psychiatric symptoms of lyme

Meet this week’s guest: Ruschelle Khanna, LCSW

Ruschelle Khanna is a social worker who was having severe psychiatric symptoms. While she was originally diagnosed with Mercury Toxicity, somebody on Facebook suggested that she had lyme disease. She found a Chinese Doctor, and was able to heal from Lyme Disease using Acupuncture and Chinese medicine.

She emphasizes that Lyme disease was a spiritually transformative experience, and her Mission today is to educate therapists and social workers on how to identify psychiatric symptoms of medical conditions like lyme disease.

I practice acupuncture in Clinton, NY, a small village in the geographical center of the state. Once I became aware of Lyme and other insect carried diseases, I started seeing my chronic patients in an entirely different light. Join me as I speak with the the most fascinating people in the Lyme community. If you know someone I should interview, let me know.
