Rachel Barnes’ Lyme Hack:
Rachel Barnes’ Lyme hack is to advocate for yourself when it comes to your health, a diagnosis, and treatments. Most of us are brought up to trust doctors blindly, but when it comes to Lyme disease and so many other chronic illnesses, you have to trust your own intuition. You know your body better than anyone else. If something doesn’t feel right for you, you feel called to do a certain treatment, or you just know that something is not right, then FOLLOW THAT INSTINCT! Rachel feels so much more empowered in her healing journey when she does this, and it has led her to much more success than before.
Rachel is a 36-year-old woman from Northern Virginia. Ms. Barnes was Pursuing an active career as a commercial interior designer and project manager when she suffered a summer flu and knee pain that were written off by her doctor.
