Christa Nannos’ Lyme Hack:
Christa Nannos wants you to remember to pace yourself and to continue to have patience, even once you start go get better. You will eventually have days where you feel great (if you’re not there yet, you will be), but it’s really important to not overdo it on these days. Our minds can tell us we’re healed, but it takes our bodies some time to catch up.
Christa is the author of Tick Tock, It’s LYME O’clock: A Warrior’s Guide to Reclaiming Health & Happiness. Christa was bitten by a tick when she was 9 years old. Her Lyme disease remained mostly dormant until she was exposed to parasites while on a mission trip to Guatemala. During the following 10 years, she was misdiagnosed with mental health illnesses, Candida, SIBO, Overactive Bladder Syndrome, IBS and more. Despite being mistreated by the medical community and suffering from debilitating physical symptoms, Ms. Nannos focused on maintaining a positive mindset and used laughter as a healing tool.
