In my opinion, root vegetables are majorly underappreciated! Save for Thanksgiving, few Americans enjoy root vegetables as much as they should, or at least that’s what I’ve observed amongst my client population.

If you’re ready to expand the nutrient-dense carb options in your diet, check out my simple recipe for rosemary roasted parsnips!

Chronic infections, such as Lyme disease, can disrupt our neurochemistry, the biochemical activity occurring in our nervous system that regulates our cognition, mood, and mental health. Neurotransmitters, chemical messengers of the body that transmit signals from nerve cells to target cells, control neurochemistry. When the delicate neurochemistry of our bodies is disrupted, symptoms such as anxiety, depression, brain fog, mood swings, irritability, and reduced stress tolerance can occur. These are, unfortunately, common symptoms amongst those with Lyme disease. Read on to learn about the nutritional factors that can help balance your neurochemistry, supporting your mental and emotional wellbeing as you recover from Lyme disease.

Read on to learn how toxins compromise immune function and why detoxifying your body using science-based nutrition, lifestyle, and supplementation strategies can support healthy immune function and, if you have Lyme disease or another chronic infection, may assist you in your recovery.
