Nicole Bell’s Lyme Hack:
Nicole Bell doesn’t want you to forget the simple things that can be extremely helpful! You get inundated with all sorts of information with Lyme, and you can’t tell which end is up. Nicole Bell’s Lyme hack is to track the metrics that matter, which she identified based on her research and consulting with her husband’s doctors. These are the things you should look at on a regular basis to track your progress. Put the information into a spreadsheet and update it every time you get new test results. It becomes a really easy to use scorecard that tells you if you’re progressing in the way you want or if you need to make a change in your treatment. Sit down with your doctor and determine your metrics that matter!
Nicole is the author or “What Lurks in the Woods,” a story about her husband Russ’ battle with neurological Lyme disease, Bartonella, and more. If you would like to learn more about the Bell family’s “mistakes and successes” and the book that author Kris Newby described as a “must read for caregivers,” then tune in to episode 216 of our Tick Boot Camp Podcast!
