Aszani Stoddard will review the history and current status of tick-borne illness in the US, delve deeply into the complexities of stealth pathogens, and give tools for screening, diagnosing and treating tick borne illnesses with herbs.
Aszani Stoddard is a nurse–midwife by training, and a wise–woman by avocation. She has studied and used plant–based medicine for her entire 30+ year career. Three years ago, she stopped attending births, and trained with Dr. Laurie Radovsky to become a “Lyme–literate” practitioner. Further training includes shadowing three famous Lyme disease practitioners, two on the East Coast (the epicenter of the Lyme epidemic) and one in California. She has also attended the jam–packed International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) conference every year, and has passed testing that enables her to be a referral on ILADS website.
Aszani sees clients in her office in Minneapolis, which she shares with Jessie Belden, owner of the Medicine Tree Herbal Pharmacy.
