Herb Lab – Doctors and Herbalists helping people move into recovery naturally
The information on Lyme disease has exploded over the last few decades. It has gone from a rare, mysterious illness to a bacterial infection with an archeological past. As modern medicine has gotten better at diagnosing adverse reactions to Borrelia bacteria species, doctors and herbalists alike are getting better at helping patients move into recovery. Inspired by an interview with Lyme disease expert, Dr. William Rawls, Sue and Candace discuss their own experiences with the history of Lyme disease.
This disease has not only crept into our immune systems, it has infiltrated our culture. Patrick brings the Plum Island conspiracy into the conversation. The little, government controlled, East Coast island has quite a history and many believe it has contributed to the spread of tick borne Lyme disease. True or not, this is an interesting sociological part of our ever expanding relationship with the Borrelia bacteria species.
In this podcast, Sue and Candace share their own experience with herbalism and bacterial infections. According to Dr. Rawls, the bacteria has been around a long time and is more common than we thought. It is our immune response that is changing. The lessons herbalists like Lady Barbara left in her legacy to the world include fortifying the body rather than focusing on the bacteria itself. This is wisdom that modern doctors like Dr. Rawls has reinforced with in-depth research.
