Episode #64 : Cassie Johnston from Wholefully on Living with Lyme + Weight Loss

June 13, 2018

Thank you so much for your kind words on last week’s episode. I know this past week has been tough for many people and mental health has been a huge topic of conversation (as it should be) so I’m glad the episode could help educate and hopefully encourage you to seek out your own support.

Speaking of which, this week’s guest has spent the last year seeking out her own support system. Cassie Johnston, the blogger and entrepreneur behind Wholefully started developing some strange symptoms last summer. After many months of tests and new symptoms, she was finally diagnosed with Lyme Disease. It’s been a long road since then.

On Episode #64 of That's So Maven Podcast, we're chatting with Cassie Johnston from Wholefully all about how she started her blog, her diagnosis of Lyme Disease and how things have changed since receiving her diagnosis.

On today’s episode we’re chatting about her diagnosis and some of the lessons she’s learned along the way. It’s definitely a raw and vulnerable episode and I’m so grateful for Cassie’s openness. Here are some other things we discussed:

  • Cassie’s journey and how she started Wholefully
  • Buying their hobby farm and why that was the right choice for their family
  • The challenges that come with owning acreage and why it isn’t right for everyone 
  • Her diagnosis of Lyme Disease and what her initial symptoms were
  • The challenge of getting diagnosed for most people with Lyme
  • Some myths about Lyme Disease and what she wished all people knew
  • Treating Lyme Disease – the different options available
  • “Worry Time” and how therapy has helped her navigate her diagnosis
  • An unexpected by-product of Lyme Disease and why you shouldn’t comment on people’s weight

    What an empowering podcast! I was intrigued because Cassie Johnston shares my name, but I got a LOT of insight in regards to Lyme’s Disease and how frustrating it can be to not come across it until much later in the journey. Hopefully more research goes about Lyme’s Disease and it will be a LOT easier for medical professionals to diagnose it correctly! I will say, Cassie’s holistic approach seems like it worked really well for her so far! I love that she encouraged looking at diet and lifestyle before going into the pharmaceuticals!

    I was diagnosed with Lyme disease 5 years ago and was taking Antibiotics and Nonsteroidal anti-Inflammatory drug which seemed to help. However, I still suffer from some of the symptoms. My symptoms have always been chronic fatigue, joint pain, and even neurological problems in controlling hand and leg movements. I am a 54 year old female. the Antibiotics wasn’t really working and I could not tolerate them for long due to severe side effects, so this year our family doctor started me on Natural Herbal Gardens Lyme disease Herbal mixture, We ordered their Lyme disease herbal treatment after reading alot of positive reviews, i am happy to report with the help of Natural Herbal Garden natural herbs I have been able to reverse my symptoms using herbs, my symptoms totally declined over a 8 weeks use of the Natural Herbal Gardens Lyme disease herbal mixture. My Lyme disease is totally reversed! Their official web page is www . naturalherbalgardens . com this is a herbal store that will be leaving it’s footprint in this world. I’m 54 and have never been this healthier
