Event Details

Presented by Shannon D. Smith, DC, CCN, CCSMS, MAPS

This 12 CE seminar will approach all facets of Lyme disease from acute vs chronic patient presentations, co-infections, how to properly evaluate, test, and make significant impact in your patients health and recovery from this devastating disease. This seminar will build on the previous Lyme seminar given last year, however, the first time lyme seminar attendee will be comfortable since an overview of previous topics will be covered.

Topics to be covered: 

  • Why present blood tests are confusing, and often show false negatives in Lyme diagnosis
  • Immune recovery and re-regulation, through a functional medicine evaluation and supplementation approach
  • How to implement nutritional protocols with chiropractic philosophy in chronic disease with research backed nutritional protocols that you can implement on Monday
  • PTLDS, post treatment Lyme disease syndrome, and how to help the chronic Lyme patient move to a path of health and recovery when antibiotics failed
  • Learn why, in many cases, antibiotics alone don't resolve the entire Lyme problem

Additional content includes primary discussions in advanced clinical presentations in Lyme and co-infections: 

  • MCAS-Mast Cell Activation Syndrome
  • MTOR-Mammalian target of rapamycin regulation
  • POTS- Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome
  • IBS- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
