In episode 1297 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we bring you an interview with exercise physiologist, nutritionist, biomechanist, and certified strength and conditioning specialist Rachel Straub as our guest today. What happens when someone that makes health and fitness their number one priority becomes so sick that they can’t even take care of their basic needs? Rachel Straub, MS, CSCS, from MindBodyGreen is an exercise physiologist, nutritionist, biomechanist, and certified strength and conditioning specialist, but after a trip to Central America that resulted in a half dozen tick bites she went from being an active, independent person to bedridden and depending on her parents. Her battle against Lyme disease has been a long, hard journey that has made her a stronger advocate for being in control of your own health. It’s taken her over 4 years to recover, but now she is a voice for those who are too ill to speak and to give them hope.

Listen in today as Jimmy talks with Rachel about chronic fatigue and how it is different from just being tired, how she knew something was ultimately wrong with her, how she finally got a diagnosis, how she found out she had Lyme disease, how conventional medicine played into her treatment, the time it took to recover, why it took so long, heavy metals, weight training, her book that she co-authored Weight Training Without Injury: Over 350 Step-by-Step Pictures Including What Not to Do! , and more.

“We reached a point where my doctor had me on every medicine available to treat the infection, that’s when I became my own researcher and turned to food to treat my illness.” – Rachel Straub
