Episode 325: Customized Care - an interview with Katie Bork

1 year ago

Katie Bork is a 23-year-old nurse from Loveland, Colorado. She is currently on a healing sabbatical from her passion profession.

Although she was symptomatic since the age of 10, she largely enjoyed an idyllic childhood. However, in 2011 her health bounced back and forth between “failure to thrive” to weight gain in “excess of 60 pounds” trigging her to regularly visit the hospital

Last year, her health took a “terrible turn” causing her to feel pain all over her body that she “could not seem to remedy”. In December, she also discovered a “rash that progressively spread throughout [her] whole body”.

Her visits to medical professionals resulted in misdiagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), rheumatoid arthritis, depression, anxiety disorder, and anorexia. She was finally diagnosed with Lyme disease (Borrelia Burgdorferi, Borrelia Afzelii, Borrelia Garinii, and Borrelia Andersonii) after “begging a doctor to test her”.

Ms. Bork has utilized a variety of treatments including antibiotics, ozone, herbals, IV glutathione, and probiotics to reassemble 60% of her health.

If you would like to learn how a young nurse is utilizing customized care to manage the challenges of Lyme disease, then tune in now!
