PRAISE FROM OTHER LYME AUTHORS: A wealth of valuable information, and an excellent resource ... especially for patients looking for novel, non-toxic healing therapies to augment (or possibly replace) standard allopathic therapies ... this book should be in the library of all Lyme patients. -KENNETH SINGLETON, M.D., M.P.H. Author of The Lyme Disease Solution One of the most important books on Lyme disease treatment published in the past decade-an essential resource for both clinicians and those suffering from Lyme. -STEPHEN HARROD BUHNER Author of Healing Lyme: Natural Healing and Prevention of Lyme Borreliosis And Its Coinfections FROM THE PUBLISHER: If you traveled the country for appointments with thirteen Lyme-literate health care practitioners, you would discover many of the cutting-edge therapies used to combat chronic Lyme disease. You would also spend thousands of dollars on hotels, plane tickets, and medical appointment fees-not to mention the time that it would take to embark on such a journey. Even if you had the time and money to travel, would the physicians have enough time to answer all of your questions? Would you even know which questions to ask? In this long-awaited book, health care journalist Connie Strasheim has done all the work for you. She conducted intensive interviews with thirteen of the world's most competent Lyme disease healers, asking them thoughtful, important questions, and then spent months compiling their information into organized, user-friendly chapters that contain the core principles upon which they base their medical treatment of chronic Lyme disease. The specific practitioners interviewed represent a variety of medical disciplines, including allopathic, naturopathic, complementary, chiropractic, homeopathic, and energy medicine. Two European physicians were also interviewed. PHYSICIANS INTERVIEWED: * Steven J. Harris, M.D., Redwood City, CA * Steven Bock, M.D., Rhinebeck, NY * Susan Marra, M.S., N.D., Seattle, WA * Ginger Savely, DNP, San Francisco, CA * W. Lee Cowden, M.D., M.D. (H), Panama City, Panama * Ingo D. E. Woitzel, M.D., Pforzheim, Germany * Ronald Whitmont, M.D., Rhinebeck, NY * Deborah Metzger, Ph.D., M.D., Los Altos, CA * Peter J. Muran, M.D., M.B.A., San Luis Obispo, CA * Nicola McFadzean, N.D., San Diego, CA * Marlene Kunold, HCP, Hamburg, Germany * Elizabeth Hesse-Sheehan, DC, CCN, Kirkland, WA * Jeffrey Morrison, M.D., New York, NY All aspects of treatment are covered, from anti-microbial remedies and immune system support, to hormonal restoration, detoxification, dietary and lifestyle choices. Furthermore, the book ponders patient and practitioner challenges of treating chronic Lyme disease, and offers helpful insights to the friends and families of those coping with chronic illness. Patients can use this book to get new treatment ideas and to educate their local physicians. Practitioners can use it to learn about and stay current on the latest therapies. Lyme disease treatment is complex and controversial, and this book puts the treatment information you need in the palm of your hand.

Good to get an overview of the different treatment options out there, there is no one treatment for everyone, unfortunately. Read full review
