S2E38 - Decoding the Mysterious Lyme Disease


Show Summary:  "Imagine your body as a tree trunk with termites burrowing and leaving a bunch of holes. Lyme loves to attack neural tissues that keep you stuck in a PTSD loop - even if the ‘termites’ aren’t alive anymore.”


Lyme is a mysterious illness that not all people know of. Showing up in symptoms like migraine, anxiety, acidic stomach and other unidentified malaise, your body feels at its worst.


But, once doctors check, they find nothing serious and suggest that it's your imagination. Is it? Or did they miss identifying Lyme disease as the true and hidden culprit?


Join our guest, Hailey Scarbrough, as she takes us through her holistic victory with Lyme disease. She tells her story about finding her trusted medical practitioners. Not to mention, the long-lasting protocol that doesn't have to include antibiotics.


Indeed, knowledge is power. Let’s decode Lyme disease by listening to Episode 38 of the Gutsy Health Podcast to learn more!


Exceptional Highlights:

  • Lyme is an expensive disease to diagnose. The average patient spends tens of thousands of dollars for therapy and antibiotics.
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder is a common effect of Lyme disease even after treatment.
  • The gut and immune system may play a role in why some people are symptomatic and asymptomatic.


Show Highlights:


Cortisol worsens Lyme

  • As Lyme deteriorates your body, the stress hormone cortisol exacerbates it. From anxiety to depression, it turns into a PTSD feedback loop that turns your body against you.

Anyone can have Lyme yet be asymptomatic

  • Many of us could have Lyme yet be asymptomatic. To get better, the soil of the body, like your microbiome, must be a place where Lyme can't thrive.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy as a dual purpose treatment

  • Lyme is an anaerobic bacteria that cannot survive in non-oxygenated environments. Thus, a hyperbaric chamber saturates your body with megadoses of oxygen. It kills off the parasites, while hastening your healing process.
