Lyme Disease: Prevention & Care, Part 1

Episode 74 of Walk in the Park. We go to Greenstar Cooperative Market in Ithaca, NY on April 24 for the first part of a class about lyme disease taught by herbalist and educator, Becca Harber, and assisted by Deanna Berman, N.D.

In this episode, Ms. Harber introduces resources (downloadable handouts below) for much more information about lyme disease, discusses practitioners knowledgeable about the malady, explores a number of the myths and varying medical opinions about lyme and its prevention and treatment, shows us a “tick kit,” shows and discusses proper clothing to wear outdoors where there are deer ticks, and emphasizes the importance of daily, bodily “tick checks.”

The entire class lasted an hour and a half and this segment is just half an hour. Next week, we plan to continue with more of this rich offering of vital information about lyme disease that Becca Harber shared in this session.

This episode is showing on Ithaca’s public access cable TV channels 13 and 97.3 today (Thursday, May 1, 2014) at 9:00 p.m., on Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 a.m., and finally next Tuesday, May 6, at 8:00 p.m. And, of course, you can watch it right here!
