Under Our Skin – Lyme Disease

under our skin

I have been meaning to attend one of the many local showings of the documentary Under Our Skin in my local area (an area that is endemic for Lyme disease).  The incidence of Lyme disease is skyrocketing and since we moved to New England, everyone in my little family has at one point or another tested positive.   So the topic is a hot one for me.   The movie has lots of great information and is well worth watching if you have a chance. And now you do — if you are a Netflix subscriber.   Not sure how much longer it will be available on NetFlix ( I just discovered it the other day), but it is available right now and if you have any reason to think that you might have been exposed or have Lyme, you certainly should take some time to watch it.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    i’ve heard this doc is outstanding and terrifying at the same time. lyme disease seems to be linked to all sorts of maladies, from auto immune ones to alzheimers. it’s a must-see!!

    My uncle got Lyme’s many years ago when doctors didn’t believe it was real (so he didn’t get the proper early treatment) and he was misdiagnosed for many years. He had so many doctors tell him it was all in his head back then. He suffers a great deal with it still today. It is very hard on him, and also probably helped trigger his post-polio syndrome. They’ve now told him they believe he has the type that goes to and effects the brain. He fought to keep working for as long as he could, but he is now on disability. I haven’t seen this documentary, but thank you for the recommendation.
