Insights Into Lyme Disease Treatment: 13 Lyme-Literate Health Care Practitioners Share Their Healing Strategies (1st Edition). A book by Connie Strasheim. 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.
All aspects of treatment are covered in this book, 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.
