I discovered how strong I was when my body was at its weakest. My physical and mental body could no longer think, move, or function properly. My life and health were abruptly rerouted on a path that was scary and unknown.
Eventually, I knew I had to make a choice. Who was going to be in control of my future health and life, Lyme disease, or me?
I chose me.
I chose to trust and listen to my body so I could continue to thrive, learn, teach, and live a life of purpose.
I chose to view my life from a new perspective to create my place in this new world of chronic pain and Lyme disease.
Within this new view of living with multiple diagnoses, symptoms, and pain, I practiced the alternative healing tools and methods in this
book so that I could reclaim my health and start creating a life I was in love with again.
I want the same for you.
I was able to embrace and change my experience and relationship with Lyme disease and other co-infections to help me release my fears, heal, and transform them into a story of purpose. That is what I am sharing on these pages. I wrote this book to connect people and remind all of us that we are not alone. We are on this healing journey together.
I am not an authority on treating, diagnosing, and/or treating Lyme disease or any other chronic disease and illness. I am however an authority on living with chronic pain and the symptoms of this disease and my other related diagnoses. I also have a master’s degree in public health.
Please note that Lyme disease and other diseases/illnesses/symptoms are profoundly serious and could be life-threatening. They require proper medical attention and care from a qualified healthcare provider or team.
This book is not to be used as a substitute for your medical care and attention. Your life and health are important and seeking proper medical care is a priority. This book is a guide to provide you with alternative healing tools and activities to learn, practice, and empower yourself to become your own advocate to help you think better, feel better and live better in mind, body, and spirit as a whole.
We were born to live our highest potential even with our chronic illnesses, diagnoses, and symptoms. Sure, it was easier to plan our future dreams and goals when we had the energy, focus, and felt well. Even though our path has been temporarily derailed, it does not mean we stop believing, stop having hope, and stop having a purpose.
It only means we need to look at and approach our health and live our best lives differently. Sometimes all we need is a simple reminder, some guidance to gently nudge us and give us permission to start envisioning, creating, and living new dreams and achieving new goals.
My story focuses on my experience with Lyme disease and my personal healing process, but this could easily be your story too.
This book was written for everyone who lives with any type of chronic pain, symptoms, and illness. This book is for those who are still seeking answers and support. The message in these pages will provide you with hope when you experience the ups and downs in your personal healing journey.
There will be moments and days where you feel like you are succeeding and moving forward. There will be days where you feel like your health took a huge step backward. You may question your life, your purpose, and more. This is where hope comes in, the key ingredient that saved me and keeps me going.

#PreOrder “Gatekeeper: Book One in the Daemon Collecting Series” by Alison Levy
“Alison Levy takes us on a fast-paced ride between the seen and unseen worlds she so richly creates. Her gift for nuance makes the keen reader question truths in our own world as Gatekeeper sets us up to eagerly anticipate the next installment. I thoroughly enjoyed it.” –Stacey L. Tucker, author of The Equal Night Trilogy
“Gatekeeper is a wickedly fun romp from start to finish, and Rachel Wilde is a fiery protagonist who doesn’t take crap from anyone or anything. In her debut novel, Levy provides an action-packed story with a delightful taste of the immense, unique world-building to come for future books in the series.”
―Cheryl Campbell, author of Echoes of War
Rachel Wilde is a collector. She is responsible for locating troublesome daemons and human marks. Rachel is assigned four different tasks. The first two are easy and the second two are a bit more difficult. The third task consists of hunting down a human mark. This particular human mark is going to be a lot of trouble. The fourth task is to locate the last living member of a particular gatekeeper bloodline.
During Rachel’s first encounter with the human mark, they get into a physical altercation. As he flees, Rachel sees that he’s dropped a flash drive. Rachel needs a language specialist in order to understand what is on the flash drive. She contacts a woman named Leda Morley, an assistant to the museum curator at Rigaceen Museum. Leda works on translating the flashdrive. Rachel later visits the museum, and witnesses Leda get kidnapped. The kidnapper is the human mark that Rachel is after. Rachel follows the man and ends up getting kidnapped too. He puts Leda and Rachel in the basement. Rachel and Leda are able to escape. The human mark gets locked up. Leda ends up being the last living member of the gatekeeper bloodline that Rachel was responsible for finding. The human mark gets locked up, but an Arcanan breaks him out of prison. The Arcanan tells him to get to work.
