About My Guest:

My guest for this episode is Yolanda Hadid. Former top model, television star, author of “Believe Me”, mother of three and fashions “it” girls Gigi and Bella Hadid, Yolanda was diagnosed with chronic neurological Lyme Disease in 2012. The invisible disease ravaged her personal and professional life, leaving little but doubt and despair on the horizon. She traveled the world to receive every treatment available, covering all western and eastern modalities including Ayahuasca and frog venom, all in the hopes of finding a cure to what may be the greatest unknown pandemic of our time. As her struggle continued, supported by the love of her family, Yolanda fought her way back to remission. She felt called to use her platform to bring awareness to a disease that has no cure, especially when she learned that two of her children, Bella and Anwar, also suffer from Lyme Disease. Determination to fight for those whose voices can’t be heard while living in a paralyzed cocoon only grew stronger. Today, Yolanda is the epitome of trailblazer, an honest advocate and leader in the fight to bring education, awareness, and compassion to the study of Lyme Disease. Yolanda is now an internationally recognized force, inspiring hope and determination in all those who struggle with this invisible, yet absolutely debilitating disease. She has been honored for her work in bringing global awareness to Lyme disease by The Lyme Research Alliance and stands as a symbol that together anything can be overcome. Her book “Believe Me: My Battle with the Invisible Disability of Lyme Disease” is beautifully written and has tremendous detail on the path that she took to regain her health.
