Welcome to the Lyme Voice Podcast!!! I am your host Sarah Schlichte Sanchez and this show is about stories of healing!

Join us as we focus on the complex social and emotional aspects of life with chronic Lyme disease.

We acknowledge the suck-factor of Lyme, it's a heavy topic. But we do it with authenticity and buoyancy in an effort to figure out what works, what doesn't, and how to overcome!

We discuss these realities with authors, MD's, patients, practitioners, and other PHENOMENAL human beings. We address the medical and financial realities that impact households across the globe. While simultaneously finding hope, strategies, and treatment plans.

This accidental journey through the land of chronic illness can be daunting, but you are not alone.

Believe me, when I say that healing is possible! There is a way through. And that people ARE healing in a wide variety of ways.

#FightHealLive

1. Fighting for your health begins with your MINDSETS.
2. Healing begins with the CHOICES you make.
3. Living, truly living, and not just existing is the REWARD!

    Mold Illness With The Better Health Guy Scott Forsgren

    Mold Illness With The Better Health Guy Scott Forsgren

    Today on Lyme Voice I am joined by Scott Forsgren. In 1997 Scott was in his twenties and became violently ill.  It was the scariest thing he had ever experienced.  Overnight, his body was ravaged by an unknown illness.  He had difficulty walking, balance problems, blurred vision, low-grade fevers, rapid heart rate, burning sensations in his arms and legs, severe joint pain, nausea, digestive disturbances (we'll leave it at that), brain fog, muscle spasms, numbness, tingling, skin-hypersensitivity, motor-like tapping sensations in my hands and feet, and never-ending fatigue. 

    Doctors and health-care professionals were baffled.  They suggested that he had Epstein-Barr virus, Mononucleosis, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, severe allergies, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and of course, even that it was all "in my head".  He cannot count the number of times he was referred to a psychiatrist.  Though he will readily admit to the reality that he probably did not need one, as it had nothing to do with his physical health. 

    After 27 doctors and nine months of feeling as though he had the flu everyday, he was diagnosed with multiple parasitic infections including Blastocystis Hominis, Giardia Lamblia, Cryptosporidium, Entamoeba Hystolytica, and others.  He was also diagnosed with severe Candida resulting from antibiotic overuse from several previous doctors.   Additionally, he had Leaky Gut Syndrome and severe food allergies. 

    He tried so many different things to get well.  He received mega-doses of vitamins through IV, administered coffee enemas.  He was "smudged" by mystic healers.  Gave up wheat and fruit products for years.  He gave himself regular injections of vitamins to help with the malabsorption resulting from the infections.  He even went to one doctor that claimed that he was ill due to a virus found in Crystal Geyser bottled water (which of course never existed).  He took EPD (Enzyme-Potentiated Desensitization) shots every two months to help desensitize and heal his immune system.  The EPD treatments required three days of staying at home eating nothing but potatoes and water.

    I share all of this because this is not unique to a lyme disease patient. It takes many doctor and multiple "guesses" to get the actual diagnosis.

    Listen in and learn more today from Scott!

    Advocating For Yourself As A Minor

    Advocating For Yourself As A Minor

    Advocating for yourself within the realm of an unrecognized illness is an immense challenge. Advocating for yourself as a minor, with an unrecognized illness, when you are dependent on the adults in your life is the topic of today's episode.

    Meet Ben S... in addition to navigating adolescence, he faces the daily reality of debilitating GI issues, autoimmune dysfunction, the ebb and flow of chronic Lyme disease, and the continued challenges of finding adequate treatment.

    Kids often need ongoing permission, resources, and support to advocate for their health. This is a confusing reality when you add in the mental health issues, Lyme rage, and blackouts that often accompany symptoms of neurological Lyme disease and Neuroborrealis.

    Talking Points:
    ~Fighting multiple autoimmune disorders
    ~Medical PTSD
    ~Using medical marijuana as a minor
    ~Becoming aware of what medications you are taking and why
    ~Conventional vs. alternative treatments
    ~Mental health facilities
    ~When you are "withering away"

    Since launching Lyme Voice in 2015, getting reinfected with Lyme, conducting over 300+ coaching calls for patients and caregivers, and conducting over 100 interviews...you all have walked through hard seasons of life with me.

    Fighting Chronic Fatigue with Dr. Miles Nichols

    Fighting Chronic Fatigue with Dr. Miles Nichols

    Chronic fatigue in his early 20's was threatening Dr. Nichol's ability to finish school. He was also confused as to why he was having a hard time "getting out of bed in the morning." While his tests at multiple doctors were "within range" the way he felt was less than optimal and not sustainable.

    Talking Points:

    -Using breathing techniques to regulate the nervous system-Buteyko and Win Hof breathing methods-Cold exposure therapy-Peptide therapies to stimulate tissue repair-Resetting your chronic stress responses-Understanding mitochondrial diseases

    Dr. Miles Nichols is a functional medicine doctor specializing in Lyme, mold illness, gut, thyroid, and autoimmunity. After Dr Miles personally struggled with chronic fatigue in his early 20’s, Dr Miles dedicated himself to figure out the root causes. He suffered with and recovered from thyroid dysfunction, autoimmunity, a gut infection, Lyme co-infections, and mold illness.

    Dr. Miles and his wife Dr Diane Mueller co-authored “How to Use Your Mind to Heal Your Mold and Lyme” and “Stress Resilience”. They founded the Medicine with Heart functional medicine clinic in Colorado and also the Medicine with Heart Institute that trains other doctors in functional medicine. With a doctorate in oriental medicine, he has extensive training and expertise around herbal medicines and has developed formulations used by functional medicine doctors across the country.

    Today's guest is my co-host Author Suzanne Burden. There is so much depth, insight, tenacity, grace, and hope within this episode. And I'm really proud to bring you authentic truths that can help to shape your healing journey. Suzanne will attest to the hard realities of life with Lyme but also explain how you can simultaneously accept the invitation to restore your life!

    "Heroes in myth, literature and real life-take journeys, confront dragons (i.e., problems) and discover the treasure of their true selves." -Carol Pearson

    Key Takeaways:

    -Learn to be present and in the moment

    -Each obstacle we face is an invitation

    -Focus on what you can control

    -Every time we confront death-in-life, we confront a dragon.

    -Life is worth FIGHTING for. Every time we choose life over nonlife ad move deeper into the ongoing discovery of who we are, we bring new life to ourselves and to our culture.

    -You develop a "weird flexibility" as you navigate the uncertainties of chronic illnesses.

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
