Topic: Managing Lyme Disease as a Teenager.

Teenagers welcome! Navigating the teenage years is difficult enough without the complication of Lyme disease.

In addition to being a principal at Healthy Dwellings (, Matthew has run a wellness center and has a background in energy medicine and biofeedback.

Topic: Holistic Approaches to The Treatment of Lyme Disease
Speaker: Dr. Adam Breiner, ND naturopathic physician.
Dr. Breiner will address the diagnosis and treatment of chronic, or persistent, Lyme disease using an integrative combination of holistic and traditional tools to mobilize the body’s own immune defenses. Dr. Breiner leads the Breiner Whole-Body Healthy Center in Trumbull, CT:

Topic: Eating for Health: Traditional Foods and Lyme
Speaker: Selina Rifkin, L.M.T., H.H.C., certified holistic health counselor
Does what you eat have an effect on the progression of Lyme disease? Lyme causes inflammation and immune suppression, and what we eat can either hurt or help these issues. Come and learn how eating traditional foods reduces inflammation and supports the immune system, as well as providing superior building blocks for the body to heal itself.

Topic: Healing Lyme Disease-Body, Mind, Spirit
Speaker: Katina Markris, CCH, CIH Author of Out of the Woods
At the peak of her career, Classical Homeopath and health care columnist Katina Makris was stricken with a mysterious "flu". Only after five years of torment--two completely bedridden--and devastating blows to her professional and family life was Katina's illness finally diagnosed as Lyme Disease. But diagnosis was only the beginning of her journey toward healing.

“Rooted in personal recovery experience, a deep understanding of alternative medicine, and a poetic connection to nature, Out of the Woods transcends the boundaries of any one disease to reaffirm the power of hope for anyone grappling with life-shattering chronic illness”.

Lyme disease support group moderated by Angela LaManna, MSW, LCSW.

Topic: Laboratory testing for Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.
Speaker: Bob Giguere, Director of Sales for IGeneX Laboratories of Palo Alto, CA
