Canadian Environmentalist Speaks About Her Lyme Experience

Here’s a great article on a Canadian environmentalist discussing her Lyme experience.  Check out below some alternative things she did to manage her health.

From The Vancouver Sun:

“For years, Gwen Barlee suffered from crushing headaches, fatigue, arthritis and memory problems so severe she needed to have her business card with her just to recall her job title.

“As the policy director for the Wilderness Committee, the Vancouver-based, non-profit organization that works to safeguard wildlands, Barlee was used to living an outdoorsy, active, lifestyle. That was more than six years ago.

“I was young, worked out, didn’t drink or do drugs, and I couldn’t understand why I was falling apart. I felt I was dying,” said Barlee, now 48.

“…She radically changed her diet and began using anti-bacterial herbs suggested by a naturopath, such as golden seal. Before the diagnosis, Barlee admits her diet mostly consisted of junk food and lots of sugar. But immediately she radically changed how she ate, eating digestible raw foods, dropping all refined carbohydrates and sugar from her diet as well as alcohol. For the past six years she has been drinking a healthy juice concoction she makes of fruits and vegetables as well as hemp hearts, flax seed and fresh ginger every morning and sometimes in the afternoon.”

    Washington Post article on Lyme. Familiar story. I think we need to start getting the good success stories out there. I read some of the comments and noticed one guy who fought back from an ALS diagnosis and two back surgeries…. to heal from Lyme.

    Goldenseal may be purchased in salve, tablet, tincture form, or as a bulk powder. Goldenseal is often used to boost the medicinal effects of other herbs with which it is blended or formulated…*.’
