Guest post on Lymenaide: "Lyme-friendly Food: What is There to Eat?"

I'm excited to announce that I am a guest blogger on Lymenaide, an excellent Lyme blog started by fellow Lymie Ashley Von Tol.  Her vision is for Lymenaide to become a great source of information for Lymies, written by other Lymies, and I'm honored to have been invited as a contributor.  

I will be doing regular posts about Lyme-friendly food and will share recipes, as well as provide some Lyme-specific and general healing dietary advice garnished from my own experience, practitioner's advice, and obsessive research and reading.  I just posted my first post, "Lyme-friendly food: What is there to eat?".  It is just an introductory post to kick off my article series, briefly discussing some of the struggles with the Lyme diet, and features a number links back to recipes on this site.  

After being diagnosed with Lyme, I was thrilled to find out the diet I had intuitively settled on for myself fit in line with Lyme treatment protocol.  Without knowing it, I had been addressing Lyme from a dietary perspective all along!   My naturopath believes that is one of the reasons that I was able to return from the teetering brink of disaster I was at a couple years ago and manage my symptoms fairly well, and not continue to get even worse.  Truthfully, I feel like I saved myself from a whole world of trouble that I can't even imagine.  It scares me to think about, and I'm thankful that I will most likely never need to visit that place.

Be sure to check out Lymenaide for lots of great posts on various aspects of living with and treating Lyme.  Earlier in the week there were posts about the potential dangers of electro-magnetic fields and another post about the benefits of infrared saunas during treatment. I'm hoping to be able to get a feed set up on this blog to import posts, but in the meantime, I'll be calling out when I post a new article!
