Seminar: Naturopathic Management of Lyme Disease

April 13 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Approximately 300,000 Americans are diagnosed with Lyme disease each year, making it the most common vector-borne illness in the United States today. Connecticut is one of the most affected states in the country, with the 6th highest incidence rate per capita. Come to Great Hollow to hear naturopathic physician, Shawn Carney, N.D. of Northeast Natural Medicine, LLC discuss the science of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses, and the most sensitive testing available.  He will also discuss the role of integrative medicine in addressing other underlying conditions that make Lyme disease symptoms worse and present barriers to wellness.

After graduating with honors as a double major in environmental science and philosophy from Purchase College in New York, Dr. Carney continued to pursue a fusion of these interests by undertaking a career in integrative medicine.  He received a doctorate in naturopathic medicine from the University of Bridgeport after having worked for several engineering and environmental science firms and serving as a full-time emergency medical technician.  Dr. Carney has studied in a wide array of settings including with physicians from the International Lyme and Associated Disease Society (ILADS), and  is a licensed naturopathic physician in both Connecticut and Vermont. He currently practices at Northeast Natural Medicine,  LLC in Newtown, CT.
