Tick Boot Camp’s guest today is Allyssa LaScala. Ms. LaScala is a 29-year-old integrative health practitioner from Reading, Pennsylvania. In 2011, during her sophomore year of college, she started to experience extreme fatigue. She scheduled an appointment with her primary care physician, who ran a multitude of tests, including a Western Blot. Ms. LaScala tested positive for Lyme. She took Doxycycline for 3 weeks, but still felt the symptoms of a tick disease. After 6 months, she asked to be retested, and still came back positive for Lyme. While developing new symptoms like depression and brain fog, Ms. LaScala got advice from other Lymies. She decided to see a Lyme literate doctor. If you would like to learn more about how Ms. LaScala’s Lyme experience changed the course of her life and led her to start the Biohacking Bombshell, then tune in now!
