Joyce Braun is a 43-year-old woman from Ontario, Canada. She was bitten by a tick during a camping trip to a Lyme endemic area in 2015. After the camping trip, she developed severe neck pain. She visited a hospital emergency room and was dismissed by the doctor and accused of seeking drugs. The doctor recommended that she visit a chiropractor for her neck pain. Thereafter her symptoms progressed, and she began to suffer fatigue and chemical sensitivities. In 2018, a series of stressful life events overwhelmed her immune system and she lost the ability to get out of bed. After visiting 5 doctors over 6 years, she was diagnosed with Lyme disease through an IGenix blood test. The IGenix test also showed that she tested positive for a German strain of Lyme disease. The results were surprising because Joyce never traveled to Germany. Today, Joyce is treating with Bee Venom Therapy (BVT) and has seen early positive results.
