My Guest Blogger Abby Beale, who is a certified homeopath, sheds light on how she learned about Lyme disease and how to treat the symptoms. 


Lyme disease is one of the most misunderstood diseases of our time. How could such a small bug wreak such havoc in one’s body?! Strangely enough, it really does. And because it is such a small infector, most times, the person infected has no idea they were bitten. Symptoms start to surface that bring you to multiple doctor appointments, prescribed multiple medications, and most times there are no real answers to the problems.

As a nationally certified classical homeopath, I see people who have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, general malaise (weakness), irritable bowel syndrome, joint pain, dizziness, flu-like symptoms and more. Each of these sets of symptoms CAN be treated with homeopathy but when Lyme Disease is the primary contributor to these symptoms, the picture is much more complicated.

Though I can talk about how homeopathy can help with Lyme symptoms, for now I want you to know about Katina Makris. Katina is a certified classical homeopath as well as a Lyme disease survivor with an incredible story to tell and first-hand advice on how to get better. In her first book “Out of the Woods: Healing from Lyme Disease for Body, Mind and Spirit”, she describes in vivid detail her seven-year painful journey of symptoms, treatments tried, the collapse of her marriage, and so much more. Sadly, I am sure there are many out there who resonate with her struggle.

In her second book, “AutoImmune Illness and Lyme Disease Recovery Guide”, she provides a smorgasbord of valuable information about Lyme testing, healing protocols, healing disciplines, the mind-body connection, and so much more. She includes a Lyme Disease Symptom Checklist in the back of the book as well as related useful resources peppered throughout the book.

I have read and highlighted a lot in both of these books and have learned much about Lyme Disease, what it is, what it can look like and more importantly, what resources are needed to get better. I highly recommend both of these books though the second one is more practical with concrete things a person can do to start their road to healing from Lyme.
