Cindy Kennedy, FNP, is joined by Michelle McKeon, Certified Clinical Nutritionist, who discusses how she became interested in tick-borne illness treatments and how she became and important liaison for so many patients looking for treatment with hyperthermia and detoxification. Michelle owns Lyme and Cancer Services, where she helps people navigate their illness and treatment strategies.
Michelle specializes in detoxification, tick-borne diseases, gut dysbiosis, and inflammatory issues. She has been guiding both local and long-distance clients through addressing various factors that are causing their symptoms. Michelle looks for these answers through exploring mold mycotoxins, genetic/methylation issues, heavy metals, tick-borne infections, cell membrane damage, parasites and viral infections, candida, dental issues, diet and gut flora.
Michelle was introduced to functional medicine after her personal struggle with a debilitating battle of Lyme disease. She sought out hyperthermia treatment and detoxification therapies at a hospital in Germany. This treatment saved her life, and for the first time she was able to see a light at the end of the tunnel. Once returning home from the hospital, she immersed herself in daily detoxification and cell membrane repair therapies, vitamins and supplements, herbal tinctures, and she followed a strict diet to aid her body in the recovery process. From this experience, she decided to go back to school to receive a master’s degree in human nutrition. She graduated summa cum laude from The University of Bridgeport. From there she became a Board Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS).
Since recovering, Michelle is the owner and operator of her nutrition practice, Balancing Pathways and another company called Lyme and Cancer Services, where works as a liaison between hospitals that offer hyperthermia treatment and patients who are interested in treatment.
She has authored two e-books, and advocates for people with health conditions, through writing articles for health magazines, and speaking at conferences and support groups. Her passion for integrative medicine grew from her healing journey, which was aided by living a nutritional and balanced lifestyle. Her dynamic combination of personal, professional, and educational experiences has created a foundation to effectively support people in becoming their optimal selves: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
