More About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Healing Lyme covers a huge amount of well-referenced technical, scientific and herbal information. The result is a book that is important for health practitioners, sufferers of Lyme disease and anyone interested to know more about it and the risks of catching it. It is also important for epidemiologists concerned with emerging diseases, and ecologists and microbiologists interested in organism-organism interactions. Some of it is dense; an inevitable consequence of the depth of coverage. However, it is written in a style that for the most part keeps it readable and enjoyable for expert and layman alike. The book is searingly honest and this is necessary: at the outset Buhner describes the extent of misinformation about the disease presented to the public and published in medical and scientific texts.
The opening chapters describe the pathogenic spirochaetes (of which there are several species) and their tick vectors. He presents evidence to support the view that infection can occur independently of vectors; that it may be transmitted directly between humans, and that other vectors exist including mosquitoes. It is clear that the pathogen is undergoing rapid evolutionary change and adaptation.Read more ›
The book is highly usable for those with Lyme and practitioners who treat it. The protocols are clearly outlined in boxed sections so that the more complex parts of the book do not need to be read for healing to begin. Sources for the herbs are listed in the resource section.
This is the first book I have seen that truly does reveal the complexity of the Lyme spirochete and details a truly intelligent regimen for treatment, a treatment that can be used along with antibiotics or alone.Read more ›
