  1. A very inspiring interview and Dr Jill is so knowledgeable. Any time I hear of someone overcoming such a large illness load, I take heart. I ask bad The Conqueror attitude but being as sick as I was it took many years to get better. I share this for those of you who have tried different protocols and are still sick. Don’t give up. If you’re really sick it takes time to empty the bucket. Looking back you might not even know which treatment worked. One day you’ll start to feel better. Don’t give up. There is hope and Dr Jill is proof. Me too.

  2. Bluegrass Lyme Support Group is SHARING this video. This is such a boatload of basic WONDERFUL information all packed in tight for brain foggy folks. We can’t stress enough how proper diet and healing the gut is crucial to better health. And, THANK YOU too for addressing the importance of HOPE and positive attitudes. We have a term we call “Lyme Victory” we share with each other of how we accomplished small or large things in our lives despite the often oppressive symptoms. We focus on what we CAN do and not what Lyme has taken from us.
    Mold and Leaky Gut are huge issues that CAN be overcome. Knowledge is power. Thank you for the info !
