Neuro-optometric solutions for Tick-borne illness, with Dr. Bill Padula 12/21

This interview discusses challenges from neurological changes that can affect vision. Visual symptoms are common with tick-borne disease, and also can be associated with head concussions. Symptoms can include: blur, visual fatigue, diplopia (double vision), headaches associated with visual activities, photophobia (light sensitivity), losing place when reading, seeing words appear to double or become double when reading, and more obscure problems often not associated with vision such as difficulty with balance, spatial orientation, memory, comprehension, feeling of being over-whelmed by being in a busy-crowded environment with movement of people and objects, sensitivity to sound, to name a few. The cause of the visual symptoms is due to the tick-borne diseases affects on visual processing in the brain. The visual processing dysfunction will affect function, performance, cognitive and balance related activity. Dr. Padula discusses that 30/35 patients tested positive based on Tick/borne biomarkers he discovered in patients eyes, then confirmed these findings in blood tests. His work is pioneering, and continues to evolve. Listen to learn tips for protecting the visual and auditory process. Disulfiram has become a popular treatment and Dr. Padula discusses it's potential impact on brain processing. Compensation can create habits and coping skills that will need to be corrected through resetting and rehabilitation of the visual process. To reach Dr. Padula's office, email or call, 800-591-1160.

1st class of a 3 part series for the Lyme community. The vagus nerve is essential for keeping your immune system in-check. There is a close connection between chronic stress, immune functioning, and inflammation. In brief, short-term activation of your sympathetic nervous system releases cortisol and helps keep your immune system at healthy levels. Long-term stress suppresses immunity. Activation of the vagus nerve keeps your immune system in check and releases an assortment of hormones and enzymes such as acetylcholine and oxytocin. This results in reductions in inflammation, improvement in cognition, and feelings of relaxation. We will go over two kinds of breathwork, or pranayama to stimulate the vagus nerve and help build up the immune system. Then we will relax into a peaceful meditative state. All proceeds will go to Lyme disease research! T Click this link for the full video: Instructions Get in a quiet, comfortable place that you will not be bothered.
