Episode 176: Strength and Fortitude – an interview with Theora Dobronte


Theora Dobronte is a 33-year-old Registered Dietitian from California. Ms. Dobronte is one of six members of her family diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease. Her personal Lyme disease experience was induced by an intimate relationship with a man from a Lyme endemic community. Her symptoms progressed over time eventually forcing her to withdraw from athletic, social, and professional activities. After testing CDC positive for Lyme disease, Ms. Dobronte embraced an aggressive treatment regimen that included attending a Lyme treatment center in Nevada. Determined not to “give up” and “refusing to accept the fate” of chronic illness, she has progressed toward returning to social and professional activities. If you would like to learn more about how a Registered Dietitian is making use of her scientific aptitude, education, and experience to fearlessly battle Lyme disease, then tune in now!
