Olympic Hopeful Hannah Has Hockey Dreams Shattered by Devastating Lyme Disease Diagnosis; Envita Gets Her Back on the Ice

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - October 30, 2015) - Meet Hannah, an amazing young woman with a dream to play professional ice hockey with her sights set on the Olympics. It all came crashing down for her when she was diagnosed with Lyme disease and had to battle fatigue, joint pain and depression. Her mother had her daughter tested for Lyme disease on a hunch, but she researched heavily before sending Hannah to Envita Medical Center in Scottsdale, Arizona, where thanks to a successful treatment regimen that targeted all of the factors of her disease, Hannah is now chasing her dream of playing hockey again and is back on the ice.

Before coming to Envita, Hannah was suffering from significant joint pain. According to her, "I could not walk, my legs were buckling. I started feeling very depressed and I was like a different person because normally I am a very happy, bubbly person." Hannah was even told by her physician to discontinue playing hockey because it was making her depressed. Not wanting to accept this, and sick of doctor hopping, Hannah and her mother finally settled on Envita Medical Center as their Lyme disease treatment destination. It was there that Hannah’s mother was soon won over by the unique and specialized therapy that the medical center provides to its Lyme disease patients. Hannah, however, focused on other factors. Instead of a stone cold, white walled, hospital setting, she found Envita to be warm and inviting. In her own words, "I was definitely pleasantly surprised…it was going to be my second home in a way, after all. The patients were so great and friendly. The nurses became my friends and family. It was a relaxing place to be in a not so relaxing stage of my life."

After treatment, Hannah revealed: "It has been a complete 180 for me. I have energy, I am happy again, my joint pain is gone. My hair is growing back; my hormones are back in place. If I didn’t have the great staff you guys gave me and great environment and medicine I don’t think mentally and physically I would be here."

Envita has seen many athletes that were impacted by Lyme disease and other chronic/autoimmune conditions. Because Envita's treatment goal is to not only help with mental and neurological symptoms but to increase physical health as well, many of these athletes, just like Hannah have gotten well again.
