CNN has reported that the number of Lyme disease cases in the United States has doubled since 1991. Caused by spiral-shaped bacteria known as Borrelia burgdorferi, Lyme disease is transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected tick. The disease is also typically accompanied by many related problems, including co-infections by other kinds of microorganisms, hormonal dysfunction, immune system dysregulation, and other related issues. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) now recognize Lyme disease as the fastest spreading vector-borne disease in the country, yet most practitioners of mainstream medicine are decades behind in recognizing and addressing this emerging health crisis. This comprehensive book is the first book of its kind to approach Lyme disease from the perspective of "beginners"-those doctors, patients and caregivers who are new to the topic of diagnosing and treating Lyme disease. Dr. Nicola McFadzean, a well-respected and experienced Lyme doctor, has woven together a complete guide to the treatment and management of Lyme disease. This beginner's guide contains clearly written, easy-to-understand information, reflecting Dr. McFadzean's knowledge and experience in both traditional and alternative medical paradigms. If you or a loved one were just diagnosed with Lyme disease, or if you are a caregiver or family member to someone with Lyme disease, this book should be your first stop. It will give you the tools and resources to get started on the journey back to health.

Living with Lyme Disease is an easy to use self-help guide of holistic techniques to address some of the common symptoms and challenges of Lyme disease. Written by Helene Brecker, an Energy Medicine Practitioner who struggled with losing muscle strength in her legs and the ability to walk along with cognitive changes all stemming from a tick bite. The book offers techniques to empower the individual to help themselves in their own healing with the tools they have on hand - their hands. Part I offers some theories of Chinese Medicine, explains the modalities being used, and provides definitions of terms. Part II lists the systems affected and various energetic techniques to work with those challenges. The mental or physical challenges being faced are easily located and have descriptions of the techniques and how to work with them. Illustrations accompany verbal descriptions. As Donna Eden puts it, "Helene Brecker was one of the 100,000 people each year whose symptoms could not be controlled by medication. I have watched her healing unfold, and it has been a poignant victory of the human spirit using human ingenuity to tackle an enormous challenge. Her body was her laboratory, the canvas on which she painted a moving picture of her return to health. Like many who have overcome a terrible disease after conventional remedies have not worked, she is passionate - in the tradition of the "wounded healer" - to bring what she has learned to others. This book not only describes her journey back to health, it leaves markers on the path that others can follow."

This book is an investigation into the science, history, and politics of Lyme disease as observed by a journalist whose entire family contracted the illness traces its significant rise and the atypical presentations that have made its diagnosis and treatment difficult. It is a narrative investigation into the science, history, medical politics, and patient experience of Lyme disease told by a science journalist whose entire family contracted the disease. It paints a picture of the intense controversy and crippling uncertainty surrounding Lyme disease and sheds light on one of the angriest medical disputes raging today. The author also reveals her personal odyssey through the land of Lyme after she, her husband and their two sons became seriously ill with the disease beginning in the 1990s. From the microbe causing the infection and the definition of the disease, to the length and type of treatment and the kind of practitioner needed, Lyme is a hotbed of contention. With a CDC estimated 200,000 plus new cases of Lyme disease a year, it has surpassed both AIDS and TB as the fastest-spreading infectious disease in the U.S. Yet alarmingly, in many cases, because the disease often eludes blood tests and not all patients exhibit the classic "bulls-eye" rash and swollen joints, doctors are unable or unwilling to diagnose Lyme. When that happens, once treatable infections become chronic, inexorably disseminating to cause disabling conditions that may never be cured. The book reveals why the Lyme epidemic has been allowed to explode, why patients are dismissed, and what can be done to raise awareness in the medical community and find a cure. A comprehensive book written about the past, present and future of Lyme disease, it exposes the ticking clock of a raging epidemic.

Ally was at a breaking point when she woke up in a psych ward at the age of eighteen. She couldn't put a sentence together, let alone take a shower, eat a meal, or pick up a phone. What had gone wrong? In recent years, she had produced a feature film, a popular reality show for a major network, and had acted in an off-Broadway play. But now, Ally was pushed to a psychotic break after struggling since she was seven years old with physical symptoms that no doctor could explain; everything from joint pain, to night sweats, memory loss, nausea, and brain fog. A doctor in the psych ward was finally able to give her the answers her and her family had desperately been searching for, and the diagnosis that all the previous doctors had missed. She learned that she had Lyme disease-and finally had a breakthrough. What she didn't know was that this diagnosis would lead her down some of the most excruciating years of her life before beginning her journey to recovery from eleven years of misdiagnosis and physical pain. She would need to find her courage to heal physically, mentally, and emotionally, and become the survivor she is today. Set against the backdrop of the fast-paced fashion and entertainment industries, BITE ME shares the heartbreaking and hilarious stories that moved Ally forward on her journey from sickness to health. Its themes will be familiar to more than 300,000 Americans diagnosed with Lyme disease each year, many of whom, like Ally, wondered for years what was wrong with them. BITE ME offers readers hope and ideas for how one can transition from victim to survivor, and shares the spiritual principles and actions that have contributed to her wholeness as a human, mother, and international spokesperson against Lyme disease.
