Early Struggles with Lyme Disease
Dr. Morgan Lucas first began experiencing symptoms of Lyme disease following a trip to Texas. Despite visiting numerous doctors and undergoing countless tests, she struggled to find a definitive answer for her mysterious symptoms. As her condition worsened, Dr. Lucas became increasingly determined to find a solution to her health problems.
Discovering Naturopathic Medicine
In her quest for answers, Dr. Lucas turned to naturopathic medicine, which focuses on treating the root cause of health issues rather than just the symptoms. Through this approach, she was able to address many of her symptoms, such as bloating, hormonal imbalances, and sleep issues. Inspired by the life-changing impact of naturopathic medicine, Dr. Lucas decided to attend Bastyr University to study the field further.
The Role of Mold in Lyme Disease Recovery

Through a combination of the Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS) and addressing her SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), she was able to alleviate her sensitivities and regain control over her life.
