The list author says: "After being diagnosed with Lyme disease, Laura wanted to learn as much as she could about the illness, so she read many books on the subject, including The Lyme Disease Solution. She was intrigued by the Lyme Inflammation Diet® introduced by the book and wanted to give it a try. However, being accustomed to a dairy- and carbohydrate-rich diet (food groups not permitted until Phase 3), she hesitated. Laura called her mother, Gail, for some help. Using the list of Phase 1 foods, Gail created several delicious-looking recipes and sent them to Laura, who realized following the anti-inflammation diet was not going to be so challenging after all. After a few days of satisfying and tasty meals, Laura came up with a great idea! Considering both her and her mother's professions, she felt that together they could use their skills to create a cookbook filled with delicious and nutritious meals. Laura contacted Dr. Singleton to see if he had ever considered publishing a cookbook specific to his anti-inflammation diet. A few weeks later, she heard from him that he and his wife, a nutritionist, had been considering the exact same idea, even before receiving her letter. Many excited conversations followed, and the eventual outcome was Recipes for Repair: A Lyme Disease Cookbook."
"The book that inspired our cookbook. Dr. Singleton, a Lyme specialist who is recovered from chronic Lyme, writes about the importance healthy lifestyle including good nutrition. He introduces an anti-inflammatory based on his recovery and his patient’s experiences. This is the diet to which our recipes were created."
"Dr. Nicola McFadzean is a successful Lyme doctor who also sees the importance of good nutrition for those with Lyme and other inflammatory illnesses. The book while similar in name, is quite different than ours and compliments our book very nicely."
"Just diagnosed with Lyme? Have friends or family who don't understand how Lyme could cause you such distress? Feel confused as to why the view of most doctors is that Lyme is no big deal? Or just want to read a wonderfully written book that answers just about any question you have about Lyme disease and its origins?"
"A staple for anyone's kitchen who truly cares about nourishing themselves with nutrient-rich, healthful, delicious food. The recipes are great, but more than that, the text in the front really will open your eyes to how we are taught to eat versus what we should be eating. Great book!"
