Throughout my Lyme journey there has been nothing I valued more than convenience. My life is chaotic and busy on its own, and if anything can help make my life easier as a patient then I am all for it. That's exactly why I am so excited to have LymeWell as a sponsor! I talked to Chris, the founder of LymeWell at length about his company, his product & his story, and I was so impressed. Chris is also a fellow Lyme warrior who understands the in's and out's of this disease, and he became determined to create a product that could make Lyme patient's lives easier. He noticed that across the board almost all LLMD's tell their patients to take the same handful of supplements. This make sense of course, because the recommendations for supplements is based on what is most often depleted or needed for a patient fighting Lyme. However, this list could be pretty long and Chris wondered why no one made a supplement that combined them all. To be honest this is a question I always had too! I wished someone would just combine everything into one thing I had to take. So, Chris did just that! He created his company, LymeWell, and he packed 9 of the most common supplements & nutrients into one powder. You simply take a scoop a day in water, in a smoothie, or however you'd like. The ease and convenience of it can not be topped, not to mention the amount of money you will save not buying them all individually! Lymewell’s Lyme supplement is gluten free, nut free, and manufactured in the USA in a cGMP and FDA-compliant facility.

King's Daughters Medical Center
My world got turned upside down when I had to move home and start around the clock Lyme treatment. Things got rough very quickly, and I was bed bound 99% of every day. This was when King's Daughters Home Health came into my life, and they have been such a lifesaver for me. Their nursing staff is kind, helpful, and has come out to my house at all hours of the night when I needed them. They provide me with IV's and other care in the comfort of my own home, and they have made this entire experience so much easier for me. As a patient it is difficult enough going through the treatments, and having a caring nursing staff by my side anytime I need them is a God-send. They offer a wide range of services, from IV therapy to physical therapy, to nursing aids, occupational therapy, cardiac care & social services.
I have always had great experiences with KDMC, and I got very friendly with their Imaging Center pre-Lyme diagnosis when I had to have what felt like endless scans & tests. They have a big beautiful Imagining Center that is spacious, accommodating (lots of machines running at once), and has always been timely. I normally dreaded having to get yet another X-Ray or CT, but I would go out of my way to drive home from college just to get my tests ran at KDMC. Every single nurse and Doctor that I have worked with has always been compassionate & understanding about Lyme Disease. This illness can feel stigmatizing, but I have received nothing but support and quality care since Day 1.
King's Daughters is located in what's known as the "Tri-State Area" which is where Kentucky, Ohio & West Virginia meet. They have many locations all across all 3 states, as well as a large multi-building campus in Ashland, KY. They have world class care, and people travel from far and wide to be seen by their Doctors. Among the accolades KDMC has racked up throughout the years are: Named one of the nation's 'Top 100 Hospitals' by Solucient, named as one of the "100 Best Companies for Working Mothers," ranked the #1 Hospital in Kentucky for Patient Safety by CareChex, and a Heart & Vascular center that is in the top 5% of the Nation.
On top of all of that, when I approached King's Daughters to become a sponsor they jumped at the opportunity to help serve the chronic illness community. It's rare to find a hospital who understands and cares for those with Invisible Illnesses, and not just in words but also by action. Their partnership with this Giveaway shows their support for everyone facing an illness like Lyme Disease, and I am so thankful for their generosity.

If you are someone who has asked the question of, "how can I feel safe in my own front lawn?" then you definitely want to pay attention to this sponsor, because their sole work is stopping ticks before they ever get a chance to enter your yard.DEERBUSTERS is the industry leader for deer fencing and garden fencing options across the United States. Established in 1984, they have been wildlife and exclusion experts for over 30 years, and they really know their stuff. They are a one stop shop to get everything you need to protect your home, from deer fencing accessories to full systems & kits. Deer fencing is by far the best thing you can do for your home and your family to stop ticks from entering your lawn. If you stop the source of the ticks before they ever find a way onto your lawn to begin with then you can feel safe walking & playing in your yard again.
Ticks travel on large animals such as deer, and small animals such as mice & rabbits. This is also where they pick up the many diseases they carry, and as these animals run across your yard the ticks drop off and now become ready to latch onto you as soon as you set foot on your lawn. When you put up deer fencing you stop these animals from coming onto your yard to begin with, thus stopping the carrying of ticks onto your property.
Below is a short video showing you how to measure/install the fence on your property:
"It has been proven through at least 3 scientific studies since 1998 that good deer fencing will reduce tick counts inside the deer fence perimeter by an average of 83%!"
DEERBUSTERS carries kits & fencing, which many people choose to install themselves. They certainly make it incredibly accessible to do, carrying full kits containing everything you would need & they have a great step by step video on how to install the fence. Think of DEERBUSTERS as the one stop shop for everything in deer prevention & fencing & think of Peter as the muscle who steps in to get the fence up. This is a great option for someone who doesn't have the strength or ability to install it themselves.
DEERBUSTERS is dedicated to stopping the spread of ticks, and along with selling deer fencing they also have a wealth of info on Tick Prevention & sell tick remover tools on their site. In fact, one of the upcoming Giveaway items will be from DEERBUSTERS, as they so kindly agreed to also donate Tick-Ease tick remover tools!
If you tried to copy the benefits of deer fencing by only spraying your yard with repellant, you would have to spray your yard every single day to get the same amount of protection. Yes, you heard that right.. every single day! No one has the time nor energy for that. Deer fencing is a one time installation that keeps your home protected with no extra added work afterwards. That is definitely my kind of protection!
I want to give a huge thank you to DEERBUSTERS for being a sponsor who shares the passion for helping patients & for Peter to imparting his knowledge on me and agreeing to share with all of you. I never realized how close to home this issue was for me until 2 weeks ago when I went outside for 5 minutes, walked across my lawn & came inside to find a tick on me. It was a very small lone star tick, and it frightened me. My own front yard felt like a war zone with ticks & disease, and it's incredibly upsetting. Deer fencing is what makes the difference between seeing your lawn as a place to feel relaxed vs a place of fear.
Again, please check out DEERBUSTERS to see everything they offer & please reach out to Peter if you have any needs in the Northeast, or if you want to ask him any questions!
