The Omega Institute for Holistic Studies in Rhinebeck, NY, presents Living Well With Lyme Disease from June 20 to 22, 2014. The workshop is for those afflicted with Lyme disease, health-care providers who want to improve their diagnostic and treatment skills, and anyone else who wants the most up-to-date information on the disease, which can be difficult to diagnose.
“People often go from doctor to doctor looking for answers about their headaches; joint and muscle pains; tingling, numbness, and burning sensations; sleep disorders; depression and anxiety, or memory and concentration problems,” says Dr. Tom Francescott, who is presenting the workshop with Dr. Richard Horowitz and Katina Makris. “Lyme disease and associated co-infections are often the cause, and just as often overlooked because it’s difficult to diagnose.”
Through lectures, small-group discussions, and question-and-answer sessions, participants will learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of Lyme disease and its co-infections, clinically diagnose the disease and associated tick-borne co-infections, use such classic and integrative treatments as herbs, hormones, and nutritional therapies and discover how families can support recovery.
“We’ll also cover the many ways Lyme disease is transmitted, in addition to ticks, and the right questions to ask, whether you are a doctor or a patient,” says Francescott. To register for Living Well With Lyme Disease, visit EOmega.org.
