A doctor who struggles with an illness often becomes the expert, and that’s exactly what happened with today’s guest. For three years Dr. Darin Ingles battled Lyme disease. Conventional treatments didn’t help. He became progressively more and more debilitated until he found the right combination of diet, lifestyle, and natural therapies to heal. He applies what he learned to his own Lyme patients who recover faster and with fewer side effects. Dr. Ingels has now treated more than 7000 Lyme patients using his novel approach, many of who have gone on to live healthy, symptom-free lives.
