Absolute Health Science opened its doors here in the amazing city of Guelph on January 6th, 2014. Frances Turk, the owner of Absolute Health Science, had a vision for this new clinic as she has been interested in working in the Guelph Community for a long time. The vision for this clinic was to be able to offer an integrative approach to health care in a location that was accommodating and easy to get to for her patients, but also to be able to offer more services to integrate body, mind and spirit.

Thurs, Jan. 19th. - Bonnie Weaver - "Lyme Disease - a Personal Account"
Presentation Description Bonnie presented on this topic at the Guelph Hiking Trail Club (1.5 hrs) and the The Canoe Club. Very interesting personal account and warning about Lyme Disease.
I should tell you that when I found myself sick with Lyme Disease and discovered that I couldn’t get treatment beyond 4 weeks in Canada I began reading first general information and then the science. I found that my academic background came in handy. I had studied Biology (BSc. and MSc.) with an emphasis on invertebrates. Then rather late in life I switched fields (learned a lot more biochemistry) and did a Ph.D. in a health-related area (Nutritional Sciences). I am trying to stay up to date and accurate thus my talk changes as I learn more. Lyme Disease affected my brain and although it is functioning a lot better now, my short-term memory is not back to normal, but I am 71 years
