A Complex And Controversial Condition
Lyme disease is a complex illness that affects us neurologically, physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, vocationally and spiritually. In fact, there just isn’t a single dimension of our lives that Lyme disease doesn’t touch. It is an illness with no specific course, and it has so many complicating factors that it still remains a mystery to physicians and researchers alike. In fact, it is a highly controversial condition with many practitioners still claiming that chronic Lyme disease is more a product of people’s imaginations than a real and treatable illness.
In the face of a medical and insurance industry that remains woefully uninformed about Lyme, it’s easy to get discouraged and lose hope. This is especially true when one is experiencing the chronic pain and emotional destabilization that comes with the inflammation of the joints and swelling of the brain that can make Lyme such a debilitating illness.
Without a proper understanding of Lyme and its complexities, practitioners often misdiagnose Lyme related neurological symptoms as mental illness. Then there is the fact that many insurance companies don’t cover most of the treatment that is available. How overwhelming all this can be!
There is good news for Lyme Disease sufferers
We now have the means to use the mind-body communication network to identify, tap into and release the many Lyme related stressors that make it difficult to recover. In fact, chronic stress (often experienced with chronic Lyme) is a leading cause of immune function suppression and adrenal fatigue, both of which aggravate the symptoms of Lyme while interfering with the body’s ability to heal itself. We can work together to identify and release from your system the negative thinking patterns and painful emotional states that create chronic stress and prevent recovery.
