A book that I read over and over at the beginning of my saga.
"Coping with Lyme Disease: A Practical Guide to Dealing with Diagnosis and Treatment" by Denise Lang. Kenneth Leigner listed as a contributor (probably in a Forward or consultant.) It would be hard to find a better 'contributor' than Leigner!
Lang does a credible job of giving some background, some of the politics (although the book was revised in 2004 before the IDSA sunk their hooks into our lives) and some treatment 'suggestions'.
As always my warning is----- just because one person has a long term remission with a certain treatment protocol---- it won't necessarily mean the next person will. But it could be well worth trying, never-the-less.
It's available at Amazon in used, paperback format. Also for Kindle.
Just as an FYI, there is a new "chapter" to Cure Unknown that recently came out called "Seeking the Cure Unknown: A Report from the Lymelands." It can be found on amazon. I have yet to read it myself, but saw it announced.
OH---- I missed that. Thanks for posting. Will it be offered for anything besides the Nook, do you know? (I have a Kindle)
It's only 40 pages so it's probably not going to be a 'book'---- more like an article?
Nook eBook is available in July 2013.
But good to know about it. Thanks again.
"Aspects of Lyme Borreliosis is a comprehensive scientific presentation of virtually all aspects of lyme borreliosis. It starts with a concise history of lyme borreliosis and its causative agent, Borrelia burgdorferi. The morphological and biological characteristics of B. burgdorferi are presented, followed by outlines on the ecology and histopathology of LB. The various aspects of the clinical manifestations of LB are systematically dealt with, starting with a clinical overview. A special chapter covers the microbiological diagnosis. After a presentation on the susceptibility of B. burgdorferi in vitro and in animals against a great variety of antibiotics, a thorough discussion on the treatment of LB including critical remarks follows. The book closes with a chapter on the epidemiology of LB."
Later it was on Project Gutenberg, free, plain vanilla but I can't find it there now.
As I sais----- it's not for everyone. But it's a very interesting look-back at some of the history.
