We want to live as resilient, strong, healthy, clean people so that when we do get exposed to these infections, we don’t get taken out by them.
— Hillary Thing

We all have the innate capacity to heal from within. We also live in a world filled with toxins and other stressors that block that healing life energy. For those of us suffering from Lyme Disease or any other chronic illness, the key is to identify and treat the root cause of our health challenges and focus on the fundamentals—sleep, hydration, exercise and food as medicine. Leveraging a strategic approach, we have the ability to uproot chronic disease and wake up to our powerful life force.

Hillary Thing is the founder of Uprooting Lyme, a clinic specializing in the holistic treatment of Lyme, chronic stealth infections and complex chronic diseases. She also runs a professional training course, the Holistic Lyme Practitioner Mentorship, to educate health practitioners in the clinical arts of detoxification, immune enhancement and embodied healing. Hillary has two decades of experience as an impassioned practitioner of Chinese medicine, working as an acupuncturist and herbalist and serving patients all over the world.
