Rising Above Lyme Disease

Rising Above Lyme Disease (CHES)

This course is only for CHES practitioners.

The CDC estimates that more than 300,000 Americans, especially in the Northeast states, are newly infected with Lyme Disease each year. If caught early, antibiotics can successfully treat it. But more commonly, Lyme is asymptomatic with the spirochetes evading diagnosis until it is a full-blown, often debilitating, chronic disease requiring deep-level health and environmental interventions. Lyme can have neurological, cardiac, psychological, and joint pain implications. Thoroughly researched and referenced.


This book is not only educational, but also inspiring, as Dr. Greenspan comes from the perspective of both a naturopathic doctor and recovered Lyme patient. Laura Piazza, author

This book is a must read for those wanting to understand how to bridge the best of Western, Eastern, and natural approached. Dr. Richard Horowitz, MD, Lyme expert and NY Times author
