May is Lyme Awareness Month. Chronic Lyme Disease is estimated to affect 300 000 people in the USA alone, and these numbers are considered to be 10 times the reported cases. This disease, although surrounded by controversy, is also surrounded with despair as treatment after treatment seems to offer little relief. Dr. Rebecca Risk speaks wit Dr. Lee Cowden, creator of the Cowden protocol to discuss how this herbal protocol and help.
Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/06/2016 -- "It's all in your head," a common comment made to Lyme sufferers from their doctors as their long list of symptoms gets ignored. Although Lyme Disease is surrounded by controversy, it is very real, and the pain and suffering that come with it are great. Those diagnosed with Lyme often are faced with treatments that either don't work, are too expensive or cause even more debilitating symptoms.
Lyme Disease is a series of infections that are mostly known to be contracted from the bite of a tick. This Disease can be very difficult to diagnose and even more difficult to treat. Where antibiotics fail, or are not prescribed for long enough or at all, herbs take up the next defense. Dr. Lee Cowden created the protocol out of the need of a friend who was suffering and it has since grown to help thousands of Lyme sufferers world-wide since its creation in 2006. Dr. Rebecca Risk credits this program with saving her life when her Lyme disease was at its worst. She will be speaking with the creator of the Cowden Program, Dr. Lee Cowden to learn how it works.
For Lyme awareness month Dr. Rebecca Risk is doing a series of four shows to bring awareness to this debilitating disease that almost took her life. Her passion to bring awareness to this topic is never ending.
