Chronic Lyme Survivor Christina Sfakianos on Her Fight to Be Diagnosed and How She Healed - The WellBe Podcast with Adrienne Nolan-Smith (getwellbe) - The WellBe Podcast
Christina Sfakianos went from feeling fit and energized to noticing she was sluggish and unfocused. Her regular GP doctor tested her for Lyme, but missed the positive test result. She said age was to blame — Christina was 35 at the time. Her health worsened.
At one point she didn’t even realize she’d cut herself until she was bleeding into her daughter’s dinner (that was from the nerve damage). A few twists and devastating turns over the next several years turns sent this mother of two to the ER as her body began to shut down.
Finally after many unsuccessful doctors and conventional treatments, she found a Lyme specialist at the Johns Hopkins Medicine Lyme Disease Research Center who was able to do more accurate testing, and she found an integrative practitioner in New York City who was finally able to help Christina send her Chronic Lyme into remission.
