Katie Polk was a marine and extreme sport athlete. She became infected with Lyme Disease, and was sick for about 5 years. She says that having Lyme disease completely transformed her life. As she says on her blog “From the struggle, I have become a better mother, a better friend, a better listener, more observant, less judgmental, and I have total balance in my life. The gift I want to share with the world from my journey, is not about "Lyme disease" and it's not about disease itself; it's a message of hope and a reminder that prioritizing health and well being is a personal journey.“ Now she is an ambassador for positive thinking, visualization, health and wealth.
