The Lyme Specialist
Navigating sustainable recovery from Lyme
Tick-born infections are very complex. There are many factors in the recovery process that are important to address for true healing to occur. Determining when to implement certain treatments so that your body will be receptive to them is key for effective results. We can hold your hand through this whole process when looking into treatments to lower your pathogenic and toxin load and heal your body on a cellular level so that you can feel like your optimal self physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Healing is Possible
Hi, I am Micelle McKeon, a Licensed Integrative Nutritionist. I am dedicated to guiding you in identifying the root cause of your symptoms so that you can begin to feel like YOU again! I will take a deeper look into your genetics, environment, and lifestyle to create a personalized roadmap to restore your health!
Lyme Disease is often times a mulitisystemic illness
At a Loss with Lyme?
If you have been living with Lyme disease or other chronic health conditions, I can imagine that you probably feel incredibly frustrated. Not only are you sick and tired of being sick and tired, but you have most likely spent a lot of money on treatments already and are still left without any quality of life. I know where you are because I was there too.
I was misdiagnosed for many years and became completely debilitated from Lyme disease. Hyperthermia was the first treatment that my body responded to, allowing my body to be more receptive to additional treatments which were necessary in my recovery process. I changed my diet, began to feel the benefits of detoxification and mitochondria supportive therapies, and I moved out of my apartment to address environmental toxins that were impacting my health.
We are all different. What works for one person may not work for another. However, whatever you have been through and wherever you are starting from, our bodies are designed to heal. Sometimes our bodies need the right guidance to get there. That is what I am here for!
Recover from Lyme
Lyme disease is the most prevalent vector-borne disease in the United States, and it widespread all around the world. Lyme disease is known as “The Great Imitator.” It can affect multiple organs in the body, mirroring neurological, cardiac, and arthritic conditions.
Hyperthermia treatment involves the core temperature of the body to be increased carefully through the use of whole-body infrared-A-irradiation. The hospitals that we work with, use machines that reach temperatures as high as 107.6° Fahrenheit (42° Celsius). Hyperthermia is known to eradicate infectious diseases, break down biofilms, stimulate the immune system, and damage cancer cells.
Integrative Medicine Practice
Recovery is about working as a team with our body to fully understand and support it in the healing process. Listening to our body’s clues helps us navigate when to introduce certain treatments, and at which pace to implement these therapies. Through combining holistic mind-body medicine with evidence-based nutrition therapy, we can focus on a maintainable protocol that allows us to fully participate in life again!
Let’s Work Together
You will have the time and space to tell your story. We can take a more in-depth look into your health history, symptoms, supplements, medications, and your lifestyle. By taking these factors into consideration, we can work together to figure out a clear picture on how to nourish your body.
Exploring specialized tests will help us address underlying causes contributing to your symptoms that are impacting your health. We can test for tick-borne infections, candida, heavy metal toxicity, mold mycotoxins, mineral deficiencies, methylation/genetic issues, GI dysbiosis, and food sensitivities.
Whether you are interested in hyperthermia treatment or looking into how to support your body as a whole through diet, antimicrobial herbals, detoxification therapies, supporting your mitochondria, balancing your immune system, regulating your nervous system, healing your gut, or creating an environment that is low in mold, EMFs, and chemicals, I would love to support you along your journey.
“I just wish I could thank Michelle in person for her kindness, her friendship, and her knowledge. Michelle is absolutely not pedaling snake oil – I thank her from the bottom of my heart. I am well, and it feels like a miracle. I did not even remember what wellness felt like – phew – all I can say is that it is better than you think.”
“The Lyme Specialist was supportive, optimistic, informative and pro-active. I called them on several occasions and they responded the same or next day. The Lyme Specialist gave me hope and eventually a path to wellness. Today I am symptom free, off all my meds, and I have my life back. I am back to work as a nurse. I am grateful.
“Since returning, The Lyme Specialist has continued to follow up with my treatments and recovery, with excellent advice. I unreservedly recommend consultation with TLS before traveling abroad for Lyme treatment.”
“The two hyperthermia treatments have worked their miracle and I feel like I have my life back. I’m so grateful for the support from Michelle and Dr Herzog and can’t recommend their services highly enough.”
PRESIDENT, Nutritionist, hyperthermia CONSULTANT
Hi! I am Michelle McKeon, MS, CNS, LDN. I am Licensed Integrative Nutritionist, and Certified Mold Practitioner, specializing in tick-borne diseases, hyperthermia, environmental toxins, gut health, and inflammatory issues. I was first introduced to functional medicine through a debilitating battle with Lyme disease and many co-infections. After years of trying various treatments, and not responding to them, I decided to receive hyperthermia treatment. This treatment saved my life, and for the first time I was able to see a light at the end of the tunnel.
I guide both local and long-distance clients through addressing various factors that are causing their symptoms. I look for these answers through exploring mold mycotoxins, methylation issues, heavy metals, tick-borne infections, candida, cell membrane repair, parasites, nervous system regulation, diet, and gut flora. My hope is to support people in their healing journey by educating them about integrative medicine and hyperthermia as a successful treatment option. It does get better.
