Beginners Guide to Lyme Disease is a new Lyme book just released by Dr. Nicola McFadzean For most people a diagnosis of chronic Lyme disease brings with it a lot of emotion.  For some it’s relief, as finally they have a name for what they’ve been experiencing all these years, and confirmation that they’re not crazy; for others, it’s a devastating, momentous finding and one that brings with it a lot of anxiety and fear. Either way, people who are […]

“Lyme Disease in Australia” – New Book Just Released

Having worked with Lyme patients in Australia for a few years now, I realized that there is a tremendous need for information, both for patients and physicians alike. This book is the culmination of months of research into the history and evidence of Lyme disease in Australia; and a compilation of information based on my years in clinical practice with […]

Australia Lyme Disease Protests

As awareness of Lyme disease in Australia grows, the movement towards government recognition will also build. A recent protest led by Lyme sufferers in Australia demonstrates that. But will the government accept that patients with Lyme disease in Australia could have been infected there, or will they continue to deny its existence even in the light of solid evidence to the contrary? Much of the government’s denial of Lyme disease in Australia is based on a study done in 1994, […]

Digestive Health and Candida

Candida overgrowth is a common cause of digestive disturbance. Candida is a type of yeast, which is naturally and normally occurring in the intestinal tract. Healthy candida levels are vital for proper nutrient absorption and to protect the intestinal tract from other infections. Since the gut has its own immune and neurological systems, keeping the natural ecology in balance is key. One of the easiest ways to avoid yeast overgrowth is to limit dietary intake of sugars, carbs and alcohol. […]

Gluten Intolerance

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, oats, and barley. There is more and more awareness now of gluten being a troublesome protein for humans to digest. Especially in the west, gluten is found in so many different foods and is hidden in different forms, so our bodies are constantly being bombarded with it. Further, wheat and other gluten-containing grains have become more genetically modified, which makes it a more dangerous grain to eat. Gluten intolerance mostly affects people […]

GI Infections

There are a few underlying factors that can be present when gut health is compromised. One of the things we evaluate for at RestorMedicine is various infections that affect the gut. These can be parasitic, bacterial or yeast-related. Parasitic infections More common that one would imagine, intestinal parasites are a major cause of GI problems.

Diets for Lyme Disease

Navigating the most appropriate diet for a Lyme disease patient can be difficult, but good nutrition is such a crucial part of any treatment regimen that it is well worth addressing. Lyme disease is an illness caused by bacteria that is typically transmitted via ticks, but may also be spread via lice, fleas, mosquitos and other insects. I believe that maintaining optimal nutrition is crucial for Lyme disease sufferers, but there is limited information on what people should eat, and […]

Candida and Weight Loss

Candida overgrowth can be a significant barrier to weight loss. Candida is a naturally occurring yeast in the intestinal tract, and is vital for healthy digestion. However, when Candida overgrowth occurs, it can create problems, both with digestive function (gas, bloating etc) and more systemically with fatigue, headaches, brain fog and so on. In looking at the association between Candida and weight gain, the first thing we need to examine is the fuel source for yeast (and subsequently Candida). Yeast […]
