Holistic Lyme Practitioner
Are you ready to expand your practice & expertise?
The goal of this course is to facilitate the development of specially-trained, powerfully effective, confident holistic medical practitioners who are well-equipped at bringing those who are struggling with complex chronic disease all the way to full health.
When I think back on what it took to build my own practice specializing in Lyme and complex chronic disease—the research, the clinical experimentation, the trial and error, the stress over not knowing how best to guide patients through the ups and downs of treatment, and the constant innovation required to take patient’s healing deeper, farther, faster—I knew I had to provide more than just a brief training!
A New Paradigm for Lyme
The Uprooting Lyme approach:
- Uncovers the hidden barriers to healing and addresses disease processes by focusing on the underlying cause of the problem, which leads to more profound and longer-lasting results.
- Knows the body as an interconnected whole that is in dynamic relationship to its environment. We bring patients back to health by understanding what is lacking or out of alignment within the bio-energetic system as a whole.
- Requires the patient’s willingness to transform, awaken, and see things anew. we treat the patient, not just the disease, and the patient is a co-creator of the treatment process. Treatments are highly individualized based on the patient’s changing needs.
The topics of this year-long training are multi-faceted and integrated into live and virtual clinical trainings with patients from our clinic. You actively participate in the practical application of the Uprooting Lyme approach and protocols, which results in deep and rapid up-levelling of your clinical skills.
Based on best practices of mentorship and learning theory, this course maximizes your mastery. Most important, it goes way beyond teaching information and theory to help you hone your investigative skills, perception and intuition, coaching skills, ability to uncover what’s blocking a patient’s recovery, and to manage actual complex chronic disease cases in real-time throughout the course.
The Holistic Lyme Teaching Clinic will expose you to a spectrum of holistic modalities:
- Western and Chinese herbal medicine
- Food as medicine
- Water as medicine
- Detoxification practices and protocols
- Targeted protocols for mold, heavy metals, co-infections, yeast and parasites
- Emotional and energy management techniques Aromatherapy
- Rife technology
