Tick Boot Camp’s guest today is Sophie Ward. Ms. Ward is a 25-year-old podcaster, blogger, and travel agency owner from North West, England. Ms. Ward was an elite swimmer training for the London 2012 Olympics when she first started to experience the symptoms of a tick disease. She had extreme weight loss, gut issues, burning at the soles of her feet, and a low core body temperature. Doctors told her she was anorexic and depressed. After five years, Ms. Ward finally tested positive for Lyme disease. She has focused her healing around gut health. If you would like to learn more about how Ms. Ward uses her many talents to inspire other Lymies to take on whatever challenges come their way, then tune in now!

Tick Boot Camp is designed to further the conversation about ticks, Lyme Disease and other tick diseases. Check out our podcast to hear first hand experiences.
