    110 Who Am I Really? Katrina Radke-Overcoming CFIDS & Learning To Trust My Voice

    110 Who Am I Really? Katrina Radke-Overcoming CFIDS & Learning To Trust My Voice

    From farm town girl to Olympic Swimmer, to bedridden and beyond, therapist Katrina Radke uses her inspirational story, professional experiences, and powerful yet simple tools to help you find what drives you to be your best while feeling deeply satisfied in all areas of your life.



    Key Takeaways:
    Chronic fatigue, insomnia, and 15 doctors later is when I finally found a practitioner that was helping. I went on a HUGE spiritual journey, as my titles and roles shifted. I had to look at life very differently. I had to ask “who am I really.” Having my mind not work and realizing this wasn’t going to be over in a day were some of the hardest parts. Having been a person who liked and went after goals, Radke states “I had to learn to be ok with whatever showed up in the moment.” My biggest lesson during that time was “To TRUST, and to know that I am ok, no matter what happens. Even if I’m bedridden.” (10:00) When my Doctor suggested at the age of 21 that I should get a disabled parking sticker, I was in shock because I was used to pretending that I wasn’t really sick. “The wildest part was not being able to explain to people why I was disabled.” I learned that I could trust my voice, my intuition, I get to know that I’m not making stuff up, I didn’t need anyone else’s approval, I just need my own. If I’m ok with me, the rest doesn’t matter so much. (12:00)



    (I was this far into finishing the show notes when I had a concussion, more details in the episodes to come) **I’m better, I think, who knows. Life with Lyme is continually changing. We will be talking all about change, loss, medical PTSD, grief, and new treatment options here in November 2020. The only way out is through-Sarah

    109 The Amazing Benefits of Ketamine IV Therapy

    109 The Amazing Benefits of Ketamine IV Therapy

    Treating patients with Ketamine for 5 years now, almost 2 years at his own clinic, Jonathan Evertsen and the staff of Urbane Medical, are dedicated to serving the Lyme community and have seen some of the most amazing stories of healing, fortitude, love, and strength and have seen some miraculous improvements from IV Ketamine Therapy.



    Key Takeaways:
    Ketamine promotes a sense of mental well-being! Ketamine treatments are helping those who suffer from chronic symptoms. Helps to alleviate chronic regional pain. ~It can restore a sense of vigor
    ~Increases neuro elasticity.
    ~Less anxiety
    ~Less depression
    ~Less OCD
    ~Less PTSD
    ~Increases concentration
    ~Renewed sense of self
    ~Can help people with mobility and gait.
    ~Reduces brain fog
    ~Migraine relief
    After my first Ketamine treatment...“I’m not drunk, and I’m not high, but I’m not sober.”Sarah
     
    Reestablishes interrupted nerve connections that are necessary to recover from traumatic memories.  
    “We have to stop the suffering”-Sarah “Lyme hasn’t had the attention it deserves”-Jonathan Evertsen “The lunacy that you have to go through to find adequate care with this illness. The amount of courage you have to have to continue to self-advocate. The amount of resources (time, energy, money) that you have to be willing to commit to your healing journey, is off the charts.”-Sarah Fantastic definition of traditional western medicine... If a pill doesn’t solve the problem, I’ve got nothing.” One of the best gifts you can give someone EVER, in their entire lives, is to eliminate their pain.”-Sarah The most important thing about a practitioner at this point in my journey is how I “feel”, if they “hear me” and if they believe me.
     
    “The relationships that we have with our patients in extremely moving and we want to be reachable”-Jonathan

    108 Fighting For A Cure with Lauren Lovejoy of Lyme Warrior and Suzanne Burden

    108 Fighting For A Cure with Lauren Lovejoy of Lyme Warrior and Suzanne Burden

    Bio-From Grad Student and workaholic to bed-bound Lyme patient, Lauren started Lyme Warrior four years ago when she learned the struggle of Lyme first hand and knew she had to help. Lauren holds a Masters in Analytics and has years of experience in promotion and the legal field. She is working to empower those with Lyme Disease and help others to join together to make a change while still fighting her personal battle with Lyme Disease.  To date, Lyme Warrior has given over $70,000 to Lyme research, Lyme patients in need, and shipped over 300 Kid's Smile boxes to children suffering from Lyme Disease. Lauren lives in Virginia with her best friend and teammate Eric where they run an Airbnb and regenerative agriculture farm. 

     

    Key Takeaways:
    Loving someone with Lyme is complicated. Seemingly overnight,  Lauren began dealing with anxiety and panic attacks and became bed-bound while searching for answers. (10:00) Self-advocacy is so important when you are being dismissed by practitioners. If you can learn anything from this episode, learn that you must be driving your own healthcare journey. (12:00)
    “Yeah, after two years...I finally found a diagnosis.” followed by the crushing reality that recovering from Lyme is, in fact, awful, and it didn’t work. I turned to the Lyme Facebook groups for answers on how to heal. A crash landing can happen when you are close to healing. Our 4th date consisted of moving across the country for treatment. Dating while going through the unknowns of being in treatment. Tapping into your intuition...keep doing what is working. 
    Accepting care as a vulnerable patient can be very difficult. When you do find people who can help you heal, you must let them into your world. Try and stay open to the possibilities around you, even when you are suffering. 
    “If you focus on the problems, you will miss the opportunities. If you focus on opportunities, you’ll see past your problems.” Who we are, is different than who we will inevitably become.
    2 for 1 deal: Healing the Lyme often exposes other areas that need to be healed.(22:00) “It’s ok to be scared as you face the unknown of battling chronic Lyme.”
    Brene Brown says “Do it afraid.” “Let go of being scared of becoming someone else.”-Lauren Lovejoy (32:00) “I choose to let gratitude smack me in the face.”-Lauren Lovejoy A big misconception is that your friends and families will see and understand what you are battling. But they often don’t understand. And you may need to put boundaries around the relationships that are draining or taking away energy from you.
    Be open to new friends, they could be your next best resource. If you need answers, the FB groups can be really helpful to talk to strangers who ‘get it.”  Lyme Warrior was born out of wanting to help people get access to treatments.

    107 Becoming A "Lyme Mom" with Tricia Soderstrom

    107 Becoming A "Lyme Mom" with Tricia Soderstrom

    Tricia Soderstrom is a wife and mom of four. Tricia and her husband Scott have been married for 30 years and live in Maryland. She is a career homeschool mom, a writer, speaker, virtual assistant and is the creator of Abounding in Hope with Lyme. She and her family suffered from chronic Lyme disease for over ten years. Tricia is passionate about health, nutrition, gardening, and helping women walk with Jesus through the uncertainty and difficulty of living with Lyme! 
    Key Takeaways:
    After being bedridden for 2 years, Tricia finally got a diagnosis of Lyme disease. Explaining the deep fatigue, loss of memory, loss of cognitive function, and pain.  After getting diagnosed, Tricia began to see that one of her children was also showing symptoms. Over the next few years, each person in the house was diagnosed with Lyme. Some of the crazy symptoms included: finger tapping, facial ticks, OCD, anxiety, panic attacks, rage, PANS, oppositional defiance disorder. She rocked our world. It took 3 years to get the Lyme doctor to also test for Babesia. The medicines we were on, weren’t helping our household heal. So we turned to homeopathy.  How much strength did it take for you to continually insist that something was wrong, and that your pain and fatigue wasn’t stemming from poor lifestyle choices?  I had to do an immense amount of research, with brain fog when we weren’t getting better.  Am I crazy? Doctors thought I was trying to get attention for myself and my kids. “I prided myself on taking really good care of my family, eating whole foods, exercising...and it was heartbreaking dealing with doctors who thought I was a Munchhousen-Mom.” Tricia I talk to so many moms who are juggling the chaos of trying to keep their kids healthy enough and up on their feet.  “Having a daughter with PANS rocked our world. For so long we weren’t sure what was going on. But she kinda ruled our world for a while. ” Tricia The OCD battle was me trying to help her, and her fighting me. “I try not to think about those times because I don’t like to go back there.” Tricia “Someone was always complaining about something else that is hurting.” Tricia “It was so immense, all I ever did was try and negate the chaos that was coming from one kid.”-Sarah Explaining to the other kids in the house that this wasn’t normal behavior, this wasn’t acceptable behavior, was an all-consuming task. Rage, OCD and constant fighting We had to continually tell our daughter how much we loved her.  Tag-team parenting: A MUST (we are on the same team and we must continually try and not turn on each other) Medical PTSD impacts us more than you want to believe. What does it mean to be a Lyme-Mom?  Homeopathy, diet, and nutrition are super big in the recovery game. Treating Lyme on a budget (if that’s even possible) “Your whole world is not what you wanted it to be.”-Tricia Resources Mentioned:

    While studying to become a nurse practitioner at the University of Colorado, Elizabeth Kirt was diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease, tick-borne illness, multiple chemical sensitivities, chronic fatigue syndrome, and toxic mold exposure.  
    The lack of relief Kirt received from conventional medicine changed the way she viewed disease and medicine.  As she began to heal from her illness, she discovered the healing power of herbs, homeopathic, lymphatic drainage, cellular drainage, ozone therapy, and other alternative modalities.  Armed with my knowledge and personal experience of healing chronic illness within her own body, she is ready to help lead others down the path of wellness and health.
    Key Takeaways:
    Elizabeth walks us through the initial phase of treatment at Integrative Health Colorado which includes testing from Igenex.  Mycotoxin panel from Real-Time labs.

    105 Dear Lyme Disease (Transforming your pain into purpose)

    105 Dear Lyme Disease (Transforming your pain into purpose)

    Ep.105
    In 2015, Wendi’s life drastically changed when she was diagnosed with Lyme disease and other life-threatening infections.  Each chapter of her new book  “Dear Lyme Disease” takes you from theory to practice so you can start learning alternative healing tools and engaging in experiential exercises to start implementing a new way of thinking, living, finding your “new normal” and HOPE. 



    Key Takeaways:
     
    “I discovered how strong I was when my body was at it’s weakest.”  
    No one teaches you how to live within a weak and broken body. I went from going on a 100-mile bike ride to having to crawl to the bathroom. (16:00) We live in a Go-Go-Go society, no one teaches how to live in slow motion. “I am not an authority on treating, diagnosing, and/or any other chronic disease and illness. I am however an authority on living with chronic pain and the symptoms of this disease and my other related diagnoses.”  Michael J Fox “This message is so simple and yet gets forgotten. The people living with the conditions are the experts.”
     
    Writing this letter to Lyme disease allowed me to let go of so much anger.   
    I knew I needed to forgive (Lyme) in order to heal. My brain feels like it was reprogrammed. (38:00) Do you think the anger comes from the illness, or from the grief? BOTH How close to divorce are we?  “You should consider getting a counselor. Your marriage now has a 3rd party in it (illness). -Sarah Learning to live simply allows me to live. “You are the superhero in your own healing journey.”
     
    What does worthiness have to do with healing your body? EVERYTHING…(50:00)  
    Giving yourself PERMISSION is such a huge part of healing. You have permission to feel the way that you do. It’s ok if it’s noon and you just got out of bed. You have permission to just be.  “It’s ok to flounder in the insanity of Lyme” (You’ll find your way, don’t give up) (54:00)-Sarah “My perspectives, my daily habits, the  limiting beliefs I wrestle with have all changed as I’ve dug into the recovery process.”-Sarah “I know after facing the reality of my own limitations, a certain freedom followed.” (1:00)

My Top Lyme Podcast

Thank you for providing support for not only individuals living with Lyme, but also their families. My husband and mom both listen and have found Aaron’s prospective to be valuable from the supportive role. I find so much hope and comfort listening and look forward to when you are producing episodes weekly again. With warmth, JJ Hardy

Not worth your time

They talk a lot, but say nothing. I was excited to see a program about Lyme, however this show was useless.

Thrilled I Found You!—@LymeDisasterAid

I discovered your podcast a couple weeks ago and already life is better. On my 3rd day taking D-Ribose and my energy is improving. Sick for many years, I was finally diagnosed in 2011. Still trying to get back on my feet. As soon as I heard you talking about how you have to plan your day around how much energy you have and that you have to be OK with leaving things undone I knew I was in the right place. Keep up the great work!
It is my hope to soon be a part of leading the fight for Lyme patients and you are helping me recover faster.
Thank you!!
Phil, @LymeDisasterAid
