Episode 242: SOT Saved Me – an interview with Kelsey Watkins


Kelsey Watkins is a 28-year-old wife and mother on leave from her career as a utility company office manager. She and her family reside in Meyersville, Maryland.

Ms. Watkins’ health challenges began with fainting spells when she would “go from sitting to standing.” At the age of 19, she would faint “upwards of 5 times per day.” Her primary care physician and cardiologist diagnosed her with POTS, prescribed her medication, and told her to “eat more salt.”

Her symptoms stabilized until the birth of her children. She developed headaches, gut issues, and rashes after the birth of her first child. Following the challenging birth of her second child, her symptoms migrated to “extreme psychiatric and neurological issues, brain fog, and memory loss.”

Fearing she was not healthy enough to care for her children, she sought diagnostic and treatment assistance from 10 doctors. In that process, she battled medical gas lighting and misdiagnosis until her health “went from 100 to 0 very quickly.”

Eventually a primary care physician suspected her diverse and migrating symptoms may have been caused by Lyme disease. Ms. Watkins located a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor (LLMD) to evaluate the PCP’s forecast and was diagnosed after a positive blood test.

A Lyme diagnosis offered Ms. Watkins the opportunity to build a healing plan that included antibiotics, traditional Chinese medicine, and SOT (Supportive Oligonucleotide Therapy).
