About My Guest

My guest for this episode is Dr. Bill Rawls, MD. Dr. Rawls was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in his mid-forties and developed insomnia, fatigue, joint pain, muscle pain, and eventually chest pain and heartbeat irregularities. As a doctor, he searched far and wide within the conventional medicine realm, but nothing added up. He then began searching outside of conventional medicine and towards health restoration. He became vigilant about his diet, adopted a moderate exercise program, meditated, and learned yoga. He also began to experiment with herbal supplements known to have restorative properties. This approach worked and he began to get his health back...until he was bitten by a tick and developed Lyme disease. He then learned about herbal protocols for combating Lyme disease and began to feel human again after a few months of using high-dose herbs. He has continued his exploration and is doing very well today. Dr. Rawls will be sharing his journey in detail in his new book Unlocking Lyme.
