In this milestone 350th episode of the Tick Boot Camp Podcast, we welcome special guest Sarah Terlaga Bergquist, a Lyme disease survivor, who joins Rich Johannesen and guest co-host Julia Feygelman. In this heartfelt conversation, Sarah shares her inspiring journey from the first symptoms and diagnosis to overcoming the challenges of Lyme disease and her ultimate recovery.
Athletic Childhood to Lyme Disease Sarah, a lifelong resident of Massachusetts, grew up as a competitive figure skater. After college, she began to experience unexplained health issues that escalated until a swollen knee led to a quick diagnosis of Lyme disease by a perceptive orthopedic surgeon.
A Long Journey of Treatment and Recovery Over the years, Sarah tried various treatments, including oral and IV antibiotics, with her symptoms worsening at times. Eventually, she sought hyperthermia treatment at Klinik St. Georg in Germany, where she met Julia.
Hyperthermia Treatment and Klinik St. Georg in Germany Sarah and her husband Zach, also a Lyme disease patient, traveled to Germany for hyperthermia treatment. They met Julia and other Lyme patients, creating a support system that helped them through the process. The treatment marked a turning point in their lives.
Life after Lyme Disease Since returning from Germany, Sarah has become a mother and has focused on rebuilding her life. She shares her journey to help others realize that recovery is possible.
Advocating for Lyme Disease Awareness After recovering from Lyme disease Sarah joined the "silent majority" of Lyme disease survivors but agreed to revisit her painful journey to inspire hope in others facing similar challenges.

Welcome to this episode of our podcast, where we interview Lindsay Keys and Winslow Crane-Murdoch, the filmmakers behind the acclaimed Lyme disease documentary "The Quiet Epidemic" coming out on May 16 on Amazon, iTunes, and Vimeo-On-Demand. Both Lindsay and Winslow are Lyme disease patients themselves, and they first met while undergoing treatment at a Lyme disease center. During this time, they were urged to incorporate a pursuit of purpose into their treatment plan, which eventually led them on a 7-year journey to make a film that uncovers the broader issues surrounding Lyme disease and its impact on millions of people worldwide.
In this episode, the filmmakers share the story of a young girl from Brooklyn and a Duke University scientist who were both diagnosed with Chronic Lyme disease, a condition that many medical professionals still deny exists. The film follows their journey to find answers, which leads them into the middle of a heated medical debate. As the filmmakers dig deeper, they uncover a history of Lyme disease dating back to its discovery in 1975. The paper trail of suppressed scientific research and buried documents shed light on why ticks and the diseases they carry have been allowed to quietly spread around the globe.
Joining us as a special co-host is Phyllis Bedford, the Executive Director of the LymeLight Foundation. Together, we delve into this thought-provoking film and explore the issues surrounding Lyme disease. We discuss the challenges of making the documentary, the controversy surrounding Lyme disease, and the impact of this quiet epidemic on millions of people around the world.
If you want to learn more about how Lindsay Keys and Winslow Crane-Murdoch utilized the pursuit of purpose on their healing journeys, and how it led them to create a powerful and informative film that sheds light on the quiet epidemic of Lyme disease, then tune in now. This is an episode you won't want to miss.
In this episode, we chat with Ben Ahrens, the founder of Re-Origin, about his inspiring journey to recover from Chronic Neurological Lyme Disease using neuroplasticity. At the age of 25, Ben found himself bedridden for over 3 years, despite conventional medical treatment. It was then that he discovered neuroplasticity, the brain's ability to reorganize itself and form new neural connections.
Ben attended an online class in neuroanatomy at UC Berkeley and learned about the incredible results that applied neuroscience or "neuroplasticity training" had achieved with chronic pain, physical rehab, and even immune-related conditions. He realized that the brain is the "chief orchestrator" of all mental, physical, and emotional processes and decided to heal himself with this approach.
Over the years, Ben consulted with top neuroscientists and doctors from around the world, eventually developing a program and process called The Brain Trust™ that could replicate his success at scale for a wide range of debilitating conditions. This program serves as the cornerstone of Re-Origin.
Through the power of neuroplasticity, Ben healed himself from Lyme, CFS, and Hypersensitivity disorder. He joined forces with Innovative Medicine, earning advanced certifications in biological medicine and becoming an AADP Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner in the state of New York. Together, they work on untangling some of the world's most complex chronic conditions.
