Lyme disease and its co-infections have touched the lives of many of us in the Northeast. Mainstream medicine has little to offer for prevention, treatment and even diagnosis as the current laboratory tests available are highly inaccurate. Herbal medicine has become an effective alternative for treatment and can be used alone or as a complement to other conventional and alternative methods.

In this class, we will explore the current herbal protocols being used and how they are suited best depending on the constitution of the individual and the characteristics of how Lyme has manifested for them. We will focus on a "Vitalist" approach that seeks to discover the healing force inherent in everyone that can be accessed using herbs, flower essences, nutrition and shamanic means to not only bring about health and recovery, but to optimize immune function preventing future infection.

Bio
Lisa Crow is a community herbalist with 20 years of experience as a practitioner, teacher, organic gardener and wildcrafter of medicinal herbs. She has spent many of those years working directly with people with Lyme disease and the herbal protocols that have proven most effective for the treatment and healing of Lyme and its related syndromes. Lisa is also trained as a flower essence practitioner, plant spirit healer and yoga teacher. She lives in the Kuyahoora Valley of Central New York in the Adirondack foothills.

    I consider this event invitation to be spam. As a newcomer to the NY permaculture meet-up group, this event discredits the entire group in my view. I am appalled. I would be interested in whether Lisa Ferguson Crow and her shamanic, "vitalist" approach to a real disease crosses the line into criminality, or is merely indicative of a categorically unethical, and probably pathological, personality.

      I've been to a similar class in the past, and I can assure you that it is certainly not spam or criminal. It is extremely informative. We cannot make the best decision for treatment without learning about all the causes, symptoms, constitution of the patient, lifestyle of the patient, and treatment options. The class is about being informed to make the best decision for each individual--that includes the possible use of herbs with conventional medicine, and even just conventional medicine alone.

    I would like to raise the community standards of the NY Permie meet-up group, and establish the principle of "no-nonsense". In that vein, I propose the following "protocol" for dealing with Lyme Disease:

    If you are going to be brushing against foliage, or coming in contact with pets, livestock, or wild animals, wear long sleeves and long pants.

    After the exposure, check and brush off yourself. Get a partner to check and brush off your back. As soon as possible afterwards, strip down, put your clothes in the wash, and shower while checking yourself all over for ticks. If you find a tick that has not yet latched on, remove and squash it.

    If you find a tick that has latched on, remove it safely as per instructions on the internet. If you have been bitten by a tick, consult with a physician as soon as you can. If you care about permaculture and real change toward a more sustainable cultural paradigm, employ critical thinking and model integrity in your own behavior.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
