About My Guest

Today, I’m excited to have Bob back on the show to talk about his work with Lyme beyond phases 1-3 which we covered in episode 44. Today we will focus on phases 4, 5, and 6 and preview phase 7 of his work around genetic patterns in those with chronic health challenges such as Lyme disease and related conditions. Bob’s research has been enlightening all of us to new ways to support those of us that have been impacted by Lyme disease.
