I am surprised my mentally fogged up mind could keep focused on this book as it covers everything about the disease, finding what causes it, the search for a cure and the politics that influences the scientific community from ever finding one.  I forgot much of what I read but I am left stunned and even more worried than ever about what I am facing as the stories are horrific.  In fact, half way through this book I made my first appointment with the nearest LLMD which is a 9 hour drive away!
I dog eared a few things that stood out for me.  First of all, the scientist that discovered the bacteria, for whom it is named after (Borgdorfer) and the lab where he made his discovery is in Hamilton MT 11 miles from me.  Later on she states that scientists in MT (actually in this same lab) have been trying to identify the lyme like bacteria that is now here in the wood tick.  The state was previously thought to be lyme free and many people are undiagnosed because the medical community is still unaware.  Thank God I had the rash and diagnosed myself online when I was researching chronic fatigue and lyme kept coming up.
Looking for a cure, there are very few people in the book cured.  One child became symptom free on a macrobiotic diet.  The author says that Dr. Burrascano took Ceftin until he had no symptoms, then quit completely.  He allowed his symptoms to return and did not take anything until he was extremely sick.  Then he took Ceftin again until he was symtom free.  He did this 3 times and after this he never relapsed.  The author also cured herself using this treatment.  The author doesn't mention anyone (I can remember) that were healed from herbal remedies or machines although she does say that there are many people trying different approaches.

hey neffer,
I hear you dear. Not a book I would give to anyone suffering from Lyme and who feels bad. The books made me throw
I would bet that everyone on here has read the book. But not the new kids. And for them. I really do recc. it to people who are dealing with depression. As the title cure. Well I have found that not to be true.
When you read enough books about lyme you will notice that everyone will say something different. Facts are all different from each author. So you yourself have to go with what feels good to you. I don't hear anything at all abut herbs at my clinic.
I do get mineral bags and vit bags....and take a ton of supplement...but never herbs. But maybe that is because my body can take abx. And people who cannot take abx or other well on herbs. But I do not know anything about them. But soujourn does. I don't think that if abx work for you that you should do both. But whatever....hmmm
I have also read in some books, like lab 257, that these infecouse disease's were man made to be abx resistant. hence they would work as a slient bomb on a nation.
But who treatment is off of the beaten path, not your new england journal of medicine sort of thing.
But it has worked quickly and given me my life back. Other than the fact that I hate the desert. I am glad that I am at envita getting my life and health back...finally!
2004 in Martha's Vineyard me and my two daughters then 11 mos and 6 all got Lyme Disease. This was only known to us because we found the tiny ticks on us and we got very ill. My dog also got lyme and he went lame.
We have fought it for 4 years to no avail.
We all got it again this summer is Texas.
I am now in treatment in Scottsdale Arizona at Envita.
