I posted this under a different thread, but felt like it deserved a thread of it's own.
I got word on a newly released (I think) book - IMHO one that every LD patient ought to, deserves to have access to -not t o mention every doc in this country & elsewhere!!
I have as of yet to order my copy, but you can be sure I will, as it has the potential to offer decent effective tx - no matter where one lives.
[MissouriLyme] 13 Lyme-Literate Health Care Practitioners Share Healing Strategies In New Book
Denver, Colorado—August 31, 2009. A new book, "Insights Into Lyme Disease Treatment: Thirteen Lyme-Literate Health Care Practitioners Share Their Healing Strategies," provides people with Lyme disease and their physicians with current, cutting-edge information on the treatment of chronic Lyme disease and the corollary conditions that it causes.
It is a comprehensive resource, written from the perspective of thirteen Lyme disease experts, including eight Lyme-literate medical doctors (MD’s), two naturopathic doctors (ND’s), a “heilpraktiker” (or healing practitioner, as the German title translates into English) and one chiropractor and nutritionist. The training and education of the experts encompasses a broad range of disciplines, but most use a combination of allopathic, naturopathic, complementary and alternative medicine in their practices. Whatever their background, however, all are experienced in treating chronic Lyme disease.
The book includes each practitioner’s anti-microbial and detoxification protocols, as well as their recommended supportive treatments for the body. It also provides their perspectives on the challenges and roadblocks to healing.
Insights Into Lyme Disease Treatment provides a comprehensive variety of effective, in-depth solutions. For the practitioner, it provides cutting-edge information on treatments that has not been published elsewhere.
The information in this book was obtained through interviews with the following thirteen health care practitioners:
Steve Harris, MD
Steven Bock, MD
Susan Marra, ND, MS
Ginger Savely, DNP
Lee Cowden, MD, MD (H)
Ingo Woitzel, MD
Ronald Whitmont, MD
Deborah Metzger, MD, PhD
Pete Muran, MD, MBA
Nicola McFadzean, ND
Marlene Kunold, “Heilpraktiker” (Healing Practitioner, Germany)
Elizabeth Hesse-Sheehan, DC, CCN
Jeffrey Morrison, MD
These practitioners were chosen on the basis of their expertise and experience in treating chronic Lyme disease.
