Katie DePaola’s Lyme Hack:
Katie DePaola emphasizes you should never stop looking for a cure. It doesn’t matter how many doctors tell you that there isn’t a cure or that you’re going to be sick forever. You CAN get better! Katie overcame Lyme disease and co-infections twice! She was undiagnosed for almost a decade the first time. She went through many doctors and multiple rounds of treatment that didn’t work. Eventually, after never giving up, Katie found a doctor and treatment that worked for her! She was recently reinfected from a new tick bite and was able to beat Lyme again using what she learned initially to shortcut this process. Katie’s secret to healing is BELIEVING there is a cure. More than 30 doctors said she’d have to live with brain fog and chronic pain forever, but she kept asking herself, “what if they’re wrong,” which allowed her to keep searching and fighting for her health until she got better.
Katie is an entrepreneur, author and the creative force behind a globally recognized education and training program. She is the founder of Inner Glow Circle, a company dedicated to training and certifying woman as life coaches. Ms. DePaola’s Lyme disease experience began with a tick bite suffered the summer before she moved to Nashville, Tennessee to attend the elite Vanderbilt University. For the 9 years following her tick bite, the formerly energetic young woman suffered declining health with symptoms that included extreme fatigue, constant pain, mood swings and paralysis to her hands, feet, and face. Despite consulting and treating with over 30 health care practitioners, her mysterious illness went undiagnosed until she visited the famous LLMD Dr. Joseph Jemsek. Between 2014 and 2017, she treated with several well-known Lyme disease specialists where she learned how to rebuild her health and, in the process, discovered her life’s purpose! Ms. DePaola’s spiritual journey laid the foundation for her to build and run a successful business and in 2020 to publish the acclaimed book “At Least You Look Good: Learning How to GLOW Through What You Go Through.” If you would like to learn how a young entrepreneur discovered her Greatest Level of Want (GLOW); i.e., want for herself, for others and for the world, then tune in to episode 193 of our Tick Boot Camp Podcast!
