Praise for Why Can’t I Get Better?
“Dr. Horowitz’s book is for everyone who has been labeled with a chronic disease…[it] shows how to get to the source of the problem, rather than just treating the symptoms.” ―Dr. Bob Arnot, author of the New York Times bestselling The Aztec Diet and Wear and Tear
“Lyme disease is a far more extensive cause of chronic fatigue and disability than mainstream medicine cares to recognize. But hope is to be found in Dr. Horowitz's landmark book…finally bringing desperately needed understanding and solutions to what clearly represents a modern day epidemic.” ―David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, ABIHM, author of Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth About Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar―Your Brain’s Silent Killers
“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)
“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
“Well-researched, information-rich content…the book offers matter-of-fact, objective narration.”―Library Journal
“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

After over 2 years, I've decided to stop treatment.
Forst time i read the book i thouth intresting.. but i found out that this is a doctor selling false hopes. I throwed the book in the vin and never ergret IT. Truth is for free and i found that in The LYME Cryme Whistleblowers info.
After years of escalating bizarre symptoms that were dismissed by my traditional doctors, I diagnosed myself with Lyme. Social media played a major part in my self-diagnosis -- I am thankful every day for how the internet and Facebook helped me start on the path to getting better. I am now getting treatment by a Lyme literate medical professional and my health has dramatically improved though I know I have a long way to go. I first bought his earlier book, Why Can't I Get Better?, but I have found this one is even better written and organized, and has been updated with the the latest information, so this book is the one I reach for. I have used this book as a reference for choosing additional supplements (my current Lyme practitioner uses strictly antibiotics, I know this isn't a long term solution but they do have their place). Having an understanding of the pathogens inside my body has helped me be less terrified about this illness and to focus on the things I can do to to overcome it.
My advice? Every Lyme patient needs to be their own advocate (or have a parent advocate if it is a child who is ill) as there is no one-size-fits-all treatment. Only you know how you feel and what is working or not working. Read this book, you'll probably see yourself or your loved one in it and hopefully come away with a better strategy for dealing with this devastating illness.
