Lyme Disease: Prevention and Infection

Tuesday, June 27, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Jean Schneider, herbalist and director of the Madison Area Permaculture Guild, will present on lyme disease and how to prevent tick bites.
Many of us know of at least one person who has had acute Lyme Disease and you may know of others with what is called “chronic” Lyme Disease.  The question is how do we protect ourselves and our families from this serious illness and still enjoy the outdoors?  We will discuss strategies for preventing a tick bite without using chemicals, risk factors, the current testing methods, tick co-infections and herbal antibiotics that can support what your doctor is doing for you.  Resources for additional information about Lyme Disease and how to find a LLMD (Lyme Literate Medical Doctor) for treatment will be provided.
