Since getting bitten by a Lyme infected tick last year I’ve been very interested in helping inform people about what exactly this infection is, the controversy surrounding it and how to treat it (big discussion). Peter Dobie has been doing all these things for many years in Australia, in fact he’s one of the longest serving integrative doctors in Oz and he a lot of insights and practical information to share in regards to the research behind Lyme, getting it acknowledged by the modern medical system (because it IS here), treatment options and heaps more.
