Kirstan O’Neil is a 24-year-old small business owner from Northwest Florida. She runs an RV resort with her family and helps manage the day-to-day operations of the business.
Prior to contracting Lyme disease, Kirstan had a very active and enjoyable life. She regularly went to the gym, enjoyed cooking and gardening with her grandma, and started working with her family at a young age.
At the age of 12, Ms. O’Neil contracted Lyme disease and developed a “strep-like cold,” nosebleeds, swollen glands on her neck, joint pain, chest pain, and bad urinary tract infections (UTIs). Doctors dismissed her symptoms and misdiagnosed her with things like Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), “hormonal issues,” and acid reflux.
Unfortunately, as time went on, Ms. O’Neil developed even more severe symptoms like debilitating migraines. She had to “fight back the tears” to just leave the house with her family because of excruciating pain.
Ms. O’Neil was finally diagnosed with Lyme disease at the age of 23 after seeing many different doctors. She treated Lyme disease using a variety of herbal formulas from Byron White, but first detoxed her body from extremely high levels of heavy metals and candida using a successful regimen we’ve never discussed on the Tick Boot Camp Podcast.
If you would like to learn how a young woman from Florida never gave up after doctors dismissed her symptoms for years and how she fought for her health and a proper diagnosis, then tune in now!
