Kelly Le Brock, celebrated actress model, and soon to be author is taking #weirdscience to a whole new level through creating her foodie platform by blending social media channels, and a APP developed by Priceline founder and TEDMED curator Jay Walker. She is launching her lifelong passion project called Kellys Kitchen, leading into it as a "very busy" CHANGE AGENT for healthy eating and launching #calories4good, helping FOOD BANKs across America.

Lyme Disease: Is There Hope for Those Who Suffer?
Lyme disease can be terribly debilitating.

Some people spend 5-10 years on antibiotics. Other individuals can feel "cured" for years and then develop symptoms, some similar to MS. Sometimes those who are suffering are even misdiagnosed with MS.

The bacteria crosses the blood/brain barrier within seconds, destroying your heart and other internal organs and affecting your brain.

Prevention is key, but what can you do if you've already contracted the disease?

Kelly LeBrock returns to Naturally Savvy to discuss the effects of Lyme disease, as well as options for treatment.
