“Chronic Lyme disease affects millions, yet few doctors know how to diagnose or treat it, and few get better… Dr. Richard Horowitz provides the first comprehensive explanation of why, and thankfully provides a roadmap to wellness by addressing the root causes of this debilitating illness. His approach reflects the future of health care. Medicine would be much better if all doctors understood and treated illness like Dr. Horowitz. If you have suffered from unexplained, chronic or hard-to-treat illness, this book is your pathway to health.” ―Mark Hyman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Blood Sugar Solution
“Dr. Richard Horowitz brought [my family] back from the brink of Lyme disease hell to true health. In Why Can't I Get Better, Horowitz discusses...chronic disease and the cascade of problems that may start with infection but ultimately go far beyond it... His provocative insights apply to chronic illness writ large.” ―Pamela Weintraub, award-winning author of Cure Unknown: Inside the Lyme Epidemic
“Dr. Horowitz has been, and continues to be, ‘in the trenches' in the battle to understand, diagnose and treat people who, like myself, have suffered or are suffering the effects of Lyme... I can think of no one more qualified to write about this subject.” ―Daryl Hall, musician (Hall & Oates)
“This synopsis not only provides a treasure trove of information about Lyme disease to patients and health care providers, it also offers a glimmer of hope for anyone suffering from chronic illness.” ―Publishers Weekly
“Well-researched, information-rich content... the book offers matter-of-fact, objective narration” ―Library Journal
“Horowitz is one of the most prominent ‘Lyme literate' physicians…patients wait for months to see him, and several told me that he had essentially cured them of a disease that nobody else seemed able to treat.” ―The New Yorker

I have been sick for 12 years with an ME"cfs" diagnosis. Only two years ago did I find out the CDC's recommended test, which they and the Infectious Disease Society of America claim is 100% accurate (sensitive and specific) is actually only 40 - 60% accurate (depending on the study). I then did an Igenex PCR test, which is much better (but not 100% accurate either- but at least they admit it), which CDC and IDSA warn against. Thanks to the Igenex test, I found out I have Lyme Disease. And thanks to Medicare, which pays for this expensive test, because they deem it "medically necessary."
There are an estimated 1 Million people in the United States that contract Lyme each year, but most are not diagnosed. Many are misdiagnosed with the above-listed diseases. This is a huge epidemic.
Dr. Horowitz's book is fun to read (for a medical book) and tells you what you need to know to get diagnosed and begin healing. Dr. Horowitz is recognized as the top Lyme doc in the world and this is his first and only book. Just released recently, it is up to date.
Oh yeah, also get this book if you know you have Lyme! :)
Enjoy and happy healing everyone!
