Free Educational Talk During Lyme Disease Awareness Month
Alan Grazioso of Grazioso Integrative Health, in Lexington, will present a free, educational talk on Lyme disease and how biomagnetic therapy can reduce or eliminate its symptoms, from 7 to 8 p.m., May 25, at the Wayland public library.
More than 300,000 Americans are diagnosed with Lyme disease annually according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Lyme disease is caused by a spirochete—a corkscrew-shaped bacterium called Borrelia burgdorferi. Lyme can mimic symptoms of many other diseases making it difficult to diagnose. It can affect any organ of the body, including the brain and nervous system, muscles and joints, and the heart, and available testing can be widely inaccurate.
According to LymeDisease.org, 20 to 30 percent of patients have false negative antibody tests. Over the years, there has been significant controversy over the science, medicine and public policy of Lyme disease. Treatments include antibiotics and many alternative approaches, including biomagnetic therapy which uses pairs of specially placed magnets to balance the pH in parts of the body.
Grazioso is a local biomagnetic practitioner trained in the Lyme Magnetic Protocol. Grazioso recalls, “I was fortunate to stumble upon biomagnetic therapy and be treated, trained and mentored by Joan Randall in her Lyme Magnetic Protocol (LMP) which is a very in-depth approach to addressing symptoms of acute and chronic Lyme and its many co-infections.” Grazioso launched his biomagnetic practice in 2015 in a clinic he shares with a chiropractor, a massage therapist and an acupuncturist in Lexington, Massachusetts.
