029: Starving to Heal in Siberia with Michelle Slater, PhD


When I got the book Starving to Heal in Siberia, I didn’t know what to think about it.  I had it in my cue to read, but our interview happened first. What Michelle has gone through before her healing is quite amazing. Her story is epic and if you’re listening to this episode I would encourage you to go over to lifestylelocker.com to watch the video. You would have absolutely no idea that this woman was ever near death.  I really enjoyed this conversation and I hope you do too. Make sure you go out to get this book and see how her challenges can improve your life. Here’s a little bit about Michelle:

Michelle Slater is a scholar of comparative literature and president of the educational nonprofit Mayapple Center for the Arts and Humanities in Connecticut. She holds a Ph.D. in French literature from Johns Hopkins University.

Her long battle with and recovery from late-stage neurological Lyme disease served as the genesis for this book. Debilitated by the disease to the extent that she was no longer able to teach at her university or perform simple tasks like driving and reading, Slater spent several years pursuing every known treatment, from aggressive allopathic methods to holistic remedies. When all failed to deliver recovery, she discovered Dr. Sergey Filonov’s dry fasting program and spent two months in Siberia under his care. She recovered completely from Lyme disease, regaining her memory and returning to researching, writing, hiking, and running.

Since 2017, she has not experienced a single symptom.

Here’s where you can find her:
