Every year in the United States, about 300,000 people are diagnosed with Lyme disease, according to recent studies. Symptoms of Lyme range from early on fever, achy joints and fatigue to long term severe migraines, short term memory loss and inflammation of brain and spinal cord. In this episode, Earth poet and award-winning author Stephen Harrod Buhner joins us to discuss this silent epidemic, how to avoid it and what to do if you contract it. We discuss his recently updated book, Healing Lyme, where he outlines leading scientific research, tests and treatment for Lyme disease. Stephen also shares his potent herbal protocol for treating Lyme, which has an amazing success rate: "75% of those who use the protocol as a core treatment regimen (along with other herbs and supplements as symptoms dictate) feel that they are cured." This interview is filled with helpful and crucial information for those infected with Lyme, have loved ones infected with Lyme or who live in areas where Lyme ticks are common! Episode Breakdown: * What is Lyme Disease? * Zombie ticks * Sophisticated bacteria * Be proactive * Antibiotics * How a robust immune system can help you ward off a Lyme infection * Diagnostic testing for Lyme * Stephen’s herbal protocol recommendations * Can apitherapy help minimize Lyme symptoms? * The problems with Western medicine practices * Lyme co-infections * The longterm effects of Lyme on life * Entering the Lyme Wars * Stephen’s GoFundMe for the revised edition of Healing Lyme * Key trigger symptoms of Lyme * We’ve exceed the carrying capacity of the Earth

This the most vulnerable and intimate interview I’ve ever shared publicly. I’ve decided to release the full unedited version, where I share deeply personal moments from my fairly traumatic childhood, because I think it’s important that we begin to have this conversation. But first, let me introduce you to this week’s guest: My friend Neil Strauss is the author of the New York Times bestsellers The Game, Rules of the Game, Emergency, and Everyone Loves You When You’re Dead. Most recently, Neil has published an incredibly powerful piece of work called The Truth: An Uncomfortable Books About Relationships. In this book, Neil shares some very intimate and personal moments from his past that shed light onto his adult relationships, which made me feel comfortable to share a bit about my past here. The theme of this show is mommy/daddy issues: we all have them — even those with seemingly perfect childhoods. Please have compassion on me, my family and yourself as you listen in. Thank you for being here and allowing me to share so openly! Episode Breakdown: * Why Neil wrote The Truth * What The Truth is all about * Daniel’s feelings on sexuality * How your relationships with your parents can heavily influence your adult relationships * Neil and Daniel dive into Daniel’s childhood * A bit about Neil’s childhood story * An intimate, transformational experience for Daniel and his mother * A book about recovery * Elders and olders * Finding your sexual species * Long term happiness vs short term pleasure * Finding Neil and his work
