Winter 2017 Newsletter -  Issue #47

I've been working on recovering my health since I was bitten by a tick in Northern California 21 years ago.

Fortunately, I'm doing very well now.

I've been blogging on my site now for almost 12 years! I was feeling the need to take this a step further and bring you the knowledge and wisdom of other people in a different way than what I have done to date.  

Enter "BetterHealthGuy Blogcasts".  These are interviews of some of my favorite people on some of my favorite topics.  I've done 4 so far, and have many more under development.  

I'd love to hear your feedback, your ideas, who you want to see on the blogcast next, and what you would want to ask them.

To check out my new blogcasts, you can find them here.  I'm excited about these and hope you enjoy them.

Be  optimistic....and be hopeful!

In Better Health,
Blogcast: Restoring Your Health From Lyme Disease
One of my goals for this year is to do more interviews and share them on my site.  I just recently posted Episode #4: Restoring Your Health From Lyme Disease with Dr. Bill Rawls, MD.

Dr. Rawls had his own personal journey through Fibromyalgia and Lyme disease and regained his health using herbal options and a restorative approach to wellness.  We had a great conversation and I valued learning from his personal healing journey and hearing about what he is doing to help others with Lyme disease.  

To listen to our recent conversation, simply click on the graphic below:

Dr. Rawls has taken his personal experience in restoring his health with herbs and now shares this with others through his line of nutritional products created by Vital Plan.
Vital Plan offers the Restore Program™ which includes supplements, a six-month email course, and support.  I was drawn to the fact that they aren't just sharing a product, but they provide education and support around it.  

I am excited to announce that Vital Plan is giving away a full month of the Restore Program™ FREE to one of my followers.  You can enter for this giveaway here, and one lucky winner will be selected the week of February 6th.  The last day to enter is 2/6/17 so hurry and put your name in the hat.  Good luck!

Beyond the blogcast and the giveaway, Dr. Rawls just released his new book Unlocking Lyme: Myths, Truths, and Practical Solutions for Chronic Lyme Disease.  I had the opportunity to review a pre-release copy of the book and found it very informative.  It is available now on Amazon.

ILADS 2016: Lyme Disease - An Evolving Paradigm for Chronic Illness
I attended the annual ILADS event "Lyme Disease - An Evolving Paradigm for Chronic Illness" which was held in Philadelphia, PA on November 3-6, 2016.

There were over 800 people in attendance which was remarkable to see.  When I started going to this event in 2006, it was closer to 100.  It is nice to finally see Lyme disease getting more validation and more people interested in helping those that desperately need it.

I hope you find my notes helpful and learn some new things.  I certainly did.  Enjoy!

Blogcast: Pearls from a Master
I have followed the work of Dr. Michael Lebowitz for several years and recently had an opportunity to sit down with him and benefit from his knowledge in treating Lyme disease and other chronic illnesses.  

He shared a number of pearls and key information that those with Lyme disease will want to hear.   To listen to our recent conversation, simply click on the graphic below:

In our interview, we also talk about some of my favorite products from Supreme Nutrition.  I love and have used their Takesumi Supreme, Morinda Supreme, Golden Thread Supreme, and more.

Autoimmune Revolution Summit 

The Autoimmune Revolution Summit runs from January 30 - February 6. It is a free, online event and the list of speakers for this event is top-notch.

Speakers including Jill Carnahan MD (on CIRS and mold), Anne Louise Gittleman PhD (on parasites), Jay Davidson DC (on Lyme), Amy Myers MD (on yeast), Chris Shade PhD (on heavy metals), Dave Asprey (on food and mycotoxins), and many more.

I am planning to listen to several of these and hope you will be able to as well. Enjoy!
I personally have both the Air Oasis and IQAir filtration systems in my home.  I also use the Air Oasis Mobile Sanifier when I travel and stay in a hotel. offers these (and other) filtration options and at a discounted price.  

The Air Oasis 3000G3 is normally $499 and is $439 with discount. The Mobile Sanifier is normally $249 and is $219 with the discount. 

Another reason I like is that you can call and talk with them about your situation, your environment, etc. and have them make some recommendations about what may best fit your needs.  

To see the discounted prices, go to the site, enter Health Partner code "21", register, and then you will see the special pricing.
