Ryan Sutter has been a member of Bachelor Nation for a long time. His wife Trista was the very first Bachelorette. She chose the Vail, Colorado firefighter and they were engaged on her season finale. They married and went on to have two beautiful children. They still live in Vail and have stuck together through thick and thin. Their latest obstacle has been Ryan’s mysterious illness that has plagued him for months. He finally discovered the cause and was set to appear on Good Morning America to discuss what he does for treatment. However, GMA bailed on him. Keep reading to find out why.
GMA bailed on Ryan Sutter, Why?
Ryan Sutter went to Instagram to share that he was set to appear on Good Morning America to discuss his Lyme disease diagnosis. However, in a last-minute decision by GMA, they bailed on Ryan and didn’t allow him to appear and share his story.
Ryan shared a video and began his caption saying, “I was supposed to be on @goodmorningamerica this week. The appearance was slated to be an opportunity to tell the story of dealing with a chronic illness – recognizing it, difficulties in diagnosis and the long, arduous road to discovering relief.”
He went on to say, “A couple of days prior to shooting the piece, GMA cancelled the opportunity. It seems GMA strictly adheres to American Medical Association policies and those policies do not recognize Lyme as a chronic condition, nor do they believe Infrared Sauna or Bee Venom Therapy (something I’ve found value in through @thehealhive) to be valid forms of treatment.”
He continued explaining his stance
Ryan went on to say that he too often wonders about Lyme being a chronic disease himself. He referred to other diseases that seem to be a “catch-all” such as irritable bowel or chronic fatigue. Syndromes or diseases that will require lifeline pharmaceutical or supplemental needs.
He went on to say, “Out of desperation, as so many others do, I subscribed to a battery of expensive supplements, consultations and tests – draining our savings and creating feelings of guilt and stress.”
Ryan continued saying things didn’t change until he took a minute to step back and let his body try to heal itself. When he did this he started to feel somewhat better. He said “Saunas and the Heal Hive protocols” really helped him with the process of trying to regroup and reset. He pointed out that is not a miracle cure. Ryan did say it is a holistic approach to life and that is the current path he has chosen.
Ryan concluded his post by saying, “The cancellation by GMA epitomizes everything that makes chronic illness so difficult but it should not discourage us from exploring every available course of treatment – American Medical Association sanctioned or not…”
It took months of testing and worrisome moments to finally realize that Ryan has Lyme disease. For those unfamiliar with the disease, Lyme is caused by being bit by an infected tick.
When Ryan finally learned of his diagnosis he revealed it was triggered by high levels of mold. He had been exposed to too many toxins, including mold and it weakened his immune system.
Today, he’s doing better after figuring out what was causing his issues. He revealed the diagnosis to the world nearly a year ago.
