Do any of these symptoms sound familiar: Headaches, chills, swollen glands, muscle and joint pain and/or mental confusion?
You may not have a cold or flu. You may have Lyme disease.
It’s my honor and privilege to particulate in the Chronic Lyme Disease Summit (www.chroniclymediseasesummit.com), an online program, which you can listen to for free from Monday, April 4 to Monday, April 11.
The Chronic Lyme Disease Summit is an important event because it can give valuable, much-needed information to those, who’ve been misdiagnosed or are baffled by their unexplained symptoms.
Fact: You don’t need a visible bull’s eye rash or tick bite to prove that you have Lyme disease.
Another startling fact: More people are affected by Lyme disease each year than breast cancer.
During the Chronic Lyme Disease Summit, host Dr. Jay Davidson, who nearly lost his wife to chronic Lyme disease, will be interviewing me.
Kudos to Jay. Because of his wife’s struggles, he became prompted him to do lots of research and help others heal.
During this Chronic Lyme Disease Summit, you’ll learn about diagnosis, testing, an understanding of Lyme disease, cutting-edge information and research, plus practical health tips to get your life back on track.
Now you may be wondering: Why in the world would a sugar expert be so interested in sharing information about Lyme disease?
Read on to learn why.
One beautiful summer night in 2009, while living in New York City, I went to an outdoor concert with the New York Philharmonic. Like others around me, I sat on the grass with a towel underneath me.
Although the evening was amazing, two weeks later, I felt simply awful.
My energy was zero. I was overcome by ferocious headaches, inexplicable fevers, chills, and muscle and joint pain. And then there was the frightening major mental confusion.
I was terribly perplexed by these wild ailments.
Thankfully, my smart colleague, JJ Virgin, knew better.
When I called her, desperate to find out why I felt so horrible, JJ told me, “Connie, it sounds like you have Lyme disease. Why don’t you get tested?”
It turns out that JJ was correct. Two tests confirmed that I had Lyme disease.
The funniest incident occurred while I was in the Lyme-literate doctor’s office.
Knowing that I’d just been diagnosed with Lyme disease, he said. “Connie, you need to cut out sugar.”
You see, I was already a sugar expert, and my book, Sugar Shock, had already been published.
At the time, though, I wasn’t aware of the sugar-Lyme disease connection.
So sign up now for the The Chronic Lyme Disease Summit so you can listen to Jay’s interview with me.
For instance, we’ll talk about:
- Why you shouldn’t have sugar if you have Lyme disease.
- The sugar and inflammation connection and how they suppress your immune system.
- The role of fast carbs such as French fries, onion rings, potato chips and most crackers.
- Alcohol and whether it’s wise to drink if you have Lyme disease.
- And much more.
Sign up now for the The Chronic Lyme Disease Summit so you can get educated and empowered about Lyme disease.
