Using Mindfulness to Battle Lyme Disease
The time between when symptoms emerge and when a diagnosis of Lyme disease is pronounced can be anywhere from two to 20 years. The disease is incredibly difficult to recognize, and there are very few practitioners that specialize in Lyme disease diagnosis and treatment. 

Meditation specialist and Lyme disease sufferer Shona Curley learned firsthand that the path to diagnosis can be long and the symptoms of Lyme disease—like GI issues and panic attacks—can be difficult to live with. However, she shares how changing her diet and bringing meditation and brain training into her life helped relieve these symptoms. 

Shona shares visualization and meditation techniques she uses to help her body function harmoniously while battling this complex disease. 

Listen as Shona joins Dr. Holly Lucille to discuss how meditation can be incorporated into your treatment of Lyme disease.
