Episode 316: Reclaiming Embodiment – an interview with Dana Papadopoulos


Dana Papadopoulos is a 30-year-old not-for-profit Media Director residing in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Ms. Papadopoulos was transformed from an active, healthy, athletic child and young adult to a chronically ill 18-year-old woman. Then, for almost a decade, she battled a series of seemingly separate symptoms including anorexia, extreme GI issues, gastroparesis, POTS, EDS, fibromyalgia, ovarian cysts, hypotension, anemia, PCOS, leaky gut, and more.

Despite treating with over 50 medical doctors and medical centers, including the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic, she continued to suffer from poor health while collecting an array of diagnoses. Finally at the age of 27, a local chiropractor diagnosed her with Lyme disease utilize blood testing.

Her Lyme disease diagnosis became a blessing in that it permitted her to locate a focus for healing. After treating for one year, she successfully abated her symptoms and moved into a new apartment. Sadly, the new apartment had mold that reignited Lyme causing her to lose functionality.

Today, she is preparing to revisit Bee Venom Therapy (BVT) by rebuilding her gut, utilizing routine detox tools, exercising, and performing breath work and chanting.

If you would like to learn more about a young woman had to rebuild trust in herself, get back into her body and listen to body signals to overcome the challenges caused by Lyme disease, then tune in now!
