I love this podcast!!! Everyone should listen. Although the last episode I had a problem with. The dr on the program needs to be more educated herself. She stated “if you don’t encounter a tick, you won’t get Lyme disease”. Wrong! Lyme had been found in mosquitoes, spiders, fleas, basically any biting insect. It’s been proven. You can also get it in utero, blood transfusions and it’s a possible STI. A mouse study was done and the mice passed it to each other sexually. It’s ironic shes saying drs need to be more educated when she needs to be. It would be great to get Dr.Armin on your show. That info the dr have isn’t all correct and misinformation is dangerous.
Great podcast , always awaiting the next episode so I can keep informed . Thanks !
