Buhner Healing Lyme website being shut down

by | May 22, 2022 | Lyme & Co-Infections News

The Healing Lyme Q + A began on Planet Thrive in 2007. Over the years, acclaimed herbalist Stephen Harrod Buhner answered hundreds of questions from our readers about his herbal protocol for Lyme Disease and Co-Infections, based on his book Healing Lyme: Natural Healing of Lyme Borreliosis and the Coinfections Chlamydia and Spotted Fever Rickettsiosis. His column became so popular, we created a stand-alone website for it at buhnerhealing.lyme.com. After some years tirelessly answering up to 50 questions each month, Stephen retired from the column in order to focus on his health, writing his books, and his other work. We left the website up even though there was no new content added for years. Readers were able to continue to access the archives as well as communicate with each other through the comments section on various posts. Due to the ongoing costs associated with running a website (annual domain name fees, business registration fees, hosting fees, security software fees, etc.) and a lack of any income to cover those expenses, I’ve made the decision to return the column archives back to Planet Thrive. The website buhnerhealinglyme.com will be shut down this week and the URL will be forwarded to Planet Thrive — which means you can still go to the website but you will be redirected to the column on PlanetThrive.com automatically. You will still be able to access all of the archived posts, and all of the resources — such as herb lists and practitioner lists — will still be available to you. The only thing that will change is the color scheme and design. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we make this transition. I will also be publishing some of Stephen’s latest updates on the Q + A column over the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

    Julie's life was derailed over twenty years ago when she had a very large organic mercury exposure after she naively used a mouth thermometer to measure the temperature of just-boiled milk while making her very first pizza at home. The mercury instantly expanded into a gas form and exploded out the back of the thermometer right into her face. Unaware that mercury was the third most neurotoxic element on Earth, Julie had no idea she had just received a very high dose of a poisonous substance.

    A series of subsequent toxic exposures over the next few years -- to smoke from two fires (including 9/11), toxic mold, lyme disease, and chemical injuries -- caused catastrophic damage to her health. While figuring out how to survive day-to-day, and often minute-to-minute, she created Planet Thrive to help others avoid some of the misdiagnoses and struggles she had experienced.

    She has clawed her way over many health mountains to get to where she is today. She is excited to bring the latest iteration of Planet Thrive to the chronic illness community.

    In 2019, Julie published her very first cookbook e-book called Low Lectin Lunches (+ Dinners, Too!) after discovering how a low lectin, gluten free diet was helping manage her chronic fascia/muscle pain.
