November Madison Lyme Support Group Meeting

Saturday, November 4, 2017 from 2:30-4:30pm at Pinney Library in Madison.

Topic:  Hemp Oil

Speakers: Anna Zachow and Lyssa Blakeslee have a combined caregiver background of over 40 years. They’ve cared for and advocated for the elderly, and disabled parents collectively. Lyssa also has 2 special needs children, her oldest has severe autism. They have learned to seek alternatives to western medicine as a means of providing the best quality of life for those we love. This includes looking at nutrition, effects of environment (pollution & chemicals) on every day wellbeing, and of course evaluating each and every medication recommended by a physician.

Lyssa’s drive to get her family as healthy as possible has led her to a degree in Holistic Wellness with an emphasis in nutrition. Anna is currently working on a degree in Integrative Healing Arts with an emphasis in Spiritual Guidance and Grief Care.

Their journey has led them to discover hemp oil as a solution to their own health issues as well as their families. They’ve made it their mission to share the power of one plant with the world.

They will share:

  • a sample of the product
  • the difference between marijuana and hemp
  • the endocannabinoid system
  • why we haven’t had access to it
  • what to look for in a quality product

Madison September Support Group: Body Work

https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2017/09/09/september-support-meeting-2/  (Details here)

14369960_10100462170410708_3780985242418088003_n - Version 2

Morelia Meyer, certified massage therapist since 2011 will be presenting various body work techniques.

Trained at the East-West Healing Arts Institute, Meyer has much experience helping patients.

Being a patient infected with Lyme/MSIDS herself, she quickly learned her body responded poorly to standard antibiotic treatment.  Out of necessity she began using alternative treatments such as cupping, massage, acupressure points, and Raindrop technique.

Her demonstration will include:

  • Cupping therapy – a practice believed to help remove toxins which in turn improves the immune system
  • Massage therapy – an effective treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, anxiety and headaches, shows much promise for Lyme/MSIDS patients as they suffer from similar symptomology
  • Acupressure – often called acupuncture without needles, is theorized to release endorphins as well as influence the autonomic nervous system, a system affected by tick borne illness (TBI’s).
  • Raindrop Technique – a form of aromatherapy applied to the spine, feet, and shoulders in a specific manner to achieve balance within the body.  It is especially noted for relieving discomfort associated with TBI’s. (This technique will not be demonstrated physically but will be discussed)

Being a Lyme/MSIDS patient herself, Meyer understands the pain, isolation, and neurological issues that can plague patients.  Her worst symptoms are neurological which causes her to have a constant “drunk” feeling and loss of balance.  Using the body-work techniques on herself she has achieved wellness and is thankful she can help others on their health journey.

Hope to see you there!
