Tick Boot Camp’s guest today is Arianne Jones. Ms. Jones is an Olympic athlete and holistic nutritionist from Canada. As part of her luge career, she has competed not only at the Sochi Olympics, but also in 10 Canadian championships and 52 world cups. She trained for up to 8 hours a day, went to the gym afterwards, and took college classes in the evenings. But in May of 2016, she started to exhibit the symptoms of a tick disease. She had dizzy spells, pain in her bones, a fast heart rate, and sensitivity to light and noise. She had a blood test sent off to Armin Labs in Germany, and it came back positive for Lyme and multiple co-infections. If you would like to hear more about how this Olympian’s life changing Lyme journey inspired her to launch her own brand, then tune in now!
