Though the snows still blanket the land, the air is warming and the sun soothing to a softer hue. How happily we New Englanders welcome the thaw of early spring, the sap running in the maples and the sweet smoke of sugaring shacks at work! We also now perk up the antennae to tick season around the bend.
The tiny insects, in the spider family actually, harbor the atrocious bacterial infection of Lyme disease and other illness inducing organisms. What is tricky too is that the baby tick nymphs hatching out now in late March and April are very tiny and translucent. Their outer shell is still forming yet they can carry the diseases. We must all be alert as we rake out flower beds, clean up wood piles and winter blow-downs, and our pets and live stock take to the fields, woods and yards.
Katina I. Makris,renowned Homeopath and educator,who specializes in Lyme disease, welcomes all to the Concord Library at 45 Green St, Concord, NH Monday March 23, 7pm. She covers a great deal of information as well as introduces her award winning Lyme recovery memoir and healing guide OUT OF THE WOODS, HEALING LYME DISEASE, BODY, MIND & SPIRIT, released by Helios Press, in a new second edition.
