Immune Weakness, Chronic Lyme Disease, and Your Adrenals
“Chronic” Lyme disease and other recurrent or long-term viral infections, such as Epstein Barr Virus (AKA: EBV, or the “Mono” virus), are often, at their core, adrenal problems.
The mainstream medical community will have you believe that immune-related diseases can be “healed” with antibiotics and antivirals but are finding they need ever-increasing and varied dosing strategies. Anti-microbials are not the ultimate answer.
Ask yourself this: Why do some of us recover from Lyme and Mono more quickly than others? Why are some of us more likely to have a “reactivation” of our Lyme, or of our Mono? As I explain in this video, the answer is all connected to the balance of your immune system, which is controlled by the health of your adrenal glands.
I am a naturopathic doctor who specializes in treating adrenal dysfunction at the Clymer Healing Center, which is the only practice in the US to focus on Adrenal Dysfunction since the 1960s. Our clinical experience with thousands of patients has demonstrated that adrenal dysfunction is the root of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, and that it also causes or significantly contributes to the majority of chronic illness affecting our society today.

About Primal Docs
Primal Docs was created in 2011 by Chris Armstrong. Chris was also responsible for the creation of the Celiac Handbook Website back in 2004 and is a tireless advocate for any and all things gluten-free (and grain-free).
As a natural progression of his gluten-free lifestyle, he finally decided to take the plunge into a primal/paleo lifestyle and cut out all grains, legumes, refined sugar, and processed seed oils. Both the physical and emotional benefits of this way of life were noticeable very quickly and any desire to go back to his old way of life were eliminated almost immediately.
