Episode 127: Will COVID-19 Bring Recognition to Lyme Disease Diagnosis and Treatment?

Dr. Drew Sinatra

Cindy Kennedy, FNP, is joined by Dr. Drew Sinatra for a discussion of the similarities between COVID-19 and Lyme disease. Both COVID and Lyme can have significant post-illness repercussions that can cause systemic inflammation. How well and quickly a person recovers lies in the individual’s nutritional state, gut health, stress levels and prior chronic health issues.

Dr. Drew Sinatra is a board-certified and California-licensed practicing naturopathic doctor who holds a doctorate in naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University, America’s top naturopathic and integrative medical school.

As a self-described “health detective,” he works with patients on “health care” rather than “disease care” at his practice, the CLEAR Center of Health, in Northern California. As one of the country’s leading naturopathic physicians, Sinatra’s areas of expertise include digestive disorders, autoimmune disease, hormonal balance, fatigue, mold and mycotoxin illness and complex chronic disease.

Sinatra is a member of the California Naturopathic Doctors Association, American College of Nutrition and American Association of Naturopathic Physicians. He is an author, speaker and adviser for the research and development of clean and plant-based nutritional supplements with Healthy Directions.
