Never expected this review to garner so much interest. I responded to some of you in the comments, but realized that hitting them all would take a long time; hence this update. Thanks all for taking the time to share your well-wishes and thoughts - even those who called me names. ;)
More than year after I wrote this review, I am quite well and healthy. My treatment was about ten weeks of Doxy, followed by a period of rest and exercise (odd how those intersperse) to get over "The Crud" that came after I dropped off the antibiotics. It didn't feel like the Lyme symptoms I had...it was just a nasty cold that only I contracted and could not shake for weeks. I was expecting it. I guess the antibiotics goof up the immune system for a little while.
The only supplements I took were standard grocery-store multi-vitamins and lots of fluid. In my original review below, I mentioned that I was was feeling better after ten days. Ten more days after that (or so) I was much better, and within four weeks of Doxy I was feeling normal - though somewhat reduced after so long dealing with Lyme. I stayed on the Doxy - at Doctor's suggestion - to do our best in stamping the little bug out of me. I have had no antibiotics for any reason since, and do not feel any flare-ups. Looks like I got lucky.
As to some of the criticism of my criticism...I understand I hit some nerves. I tried to avoid being harsh, but did want to provide a point of view that I think many like me might share. Lyme has so few real portals of information, and those that exist tend to be aligned philosophically with this book. That is great for those who come from the author's background, but my criticism of the effort was meant to be constructive.Read more ›
I've been trying to get the Lyme spirochetes out of my system since I was bitten in 2001. They are very tenacious. It would have been a lot easier to figure out what to do about them if I had had access to this book back then. What I love about this book is the whole approach: Interview a bunch of doctors and health practitioners who have been treating Lyme. Find out what they've learned. Put it all together in a way that is easy to read and benefit from.
If you have Lyme, every page in this book will help you. For example, on page 53, Steven Harris, M.D., says it takes nine months to three years to be free of Lyme. On page 124, Ginger Savely, DNP, says "If there's one thing I have learned from treating Lyme patients for so many years, it is that the more antibiotics they are able to take and tolerate, the better off they will be. It's important to flood the system with antibiotics."
Both of these statements, by the way, fly in the face of the doctors who think two weeks of antibiotics after a bite is sufficient. As I learned doing my own research, the problem with Lyme is, when the tick first bites you, the spirochetes are in your blood - and therefore reachable via antibiotics, which is why some people are "cured" right away. But if some of those twisted worms (that's what they look like under a microscope) start boring into the "non-blood" areas of your body - your nerves, joints, heart, brain, cartiladge, and so on - they go beyond the reach of antibiotics. That's when life gets really challenging. Short term memory loss, numbness, tingling, pain, "brain fog," "brain creaks," joint inflammation...Read more ›
