In May for Lyme Awareness Month, the Madison Lyme Support Group is showing Under Our Skin to educate others about Lyme Disease and Tick Borne Illness.

Where:  East Madison Police Station, 809 South Thompson Drive, Madison, WI

Why:  To learn about Lyme Disease and other tick borne illness. Q & A will follow.

Mike Nickel watched his healthy son become wheelchair bound with LD. After going through the frustrating process of trying to get him a diagnosis and proper treatment, he founded the Wisconsin Lyme On-line Support Group to help others in 2012.  He is also a founder and past president of the Wisconsin Lyme Network.

Alicia Cashman first found out her dog had LD, followed by her husband, and then she came down with full-blown symptoms and a diagnosis. She started running the Madison Lyme Support Group when its predecessor stepped down in 2014. She is also a member of the Lyme Disease Association, and is on the Tick IPM Working Group.

Come learn about the #1 Vector Borne Illness in the U.S. nearing 400,000 new cases a year with Wisconsin ranked 6th in the nation. You can get this in your back yard.

Currently she is seeing patients at Serenity Health Clinic in collaboration with Dr. Muth and Dr. Greg Brown.

Sonja has extensive clinical experience having worked as a nurse for 24 years in both the mainstream medical and the complimentary medical approach to treatment. With her son, Alex’s diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder over thirteen years ago, Sonja was compelled to reevaluate her beliefs and knowledge in traditional medicine. Through the use of therapeutic dietary intervention, biomedical treatments and other therapies, Alex has made a recovery.

  Amy Hoffman received her Master of Science degree in Nursing from Marquette University in 2013. With an advanced degree in nursing and a degree in psychology, Amy has an understanding of the importance of psychological health impacting physical health.

Amy is a board certified Nurse Practitioner (AGPCNP*) who joined Serenity Health Care Center as a holistic practitioner. After working in ICU Amy noticed that the patients were being treated based on their symptoms and not as a whole person. Amy sought to treat patients as individuals who had unique physical, psychological, and spiritual needs instead of as individual symptoms.

Amy offers a variety of services for adults including medical and psychological diagnostic evaluation and treatment using the most effective holistic protocol. Her focus is on preventing the onset of chronic disease.

Amy is excited to advance her knowledge in integrative medicine and implement new modalities and treatment protocols that are being taught by groups like A4M, ACAM, and AAEM.

She has a passion for working with women and preventing age related diseases through the use of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy as well as the role the environment plays on our health. Amy has had the pleasure of being trained by the best hormones practitioners in the industry; Dr. Jonathan Wright, Pam Smith, Ron Rothenberg and Terry Hertoghe.
