FOR THOSE SEEKING FURTHER INFORMATION ON LYME DISEASE
here are some of my favorite online resources:
My favorite single artlcle on Lyme is Lyme Disease: A Look Beyond Antibiotics, by Dietrich Klinghardt MD, PhD, accessible at
If you do nothing more than read and assimilate this information (which, mind you, may take awhile- particularly the assimilate part), you will know more about how to properly approach Lyme than the vast majority of health practitioners.
My favorite books on Lyme are:
Healing Lyme: Natural Healing And Prevention of Lyme Borreliosis And Its Coinfections -- by Stephen Harrod Buhner, available at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0970869630/103-6368232-3368631?v=glance&n=283155 and finer bookstores everywhere. FANTASTIC!
Beating Lyme Disease: Using Alternative Medicine and God-Designed Living -- by David A. Jernigan, Sara Koch Jernigan;, available at
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0967462312/sr=8-1/qid=1153198837/ref=pd_bbs_1/103-6368232-3368631?ie=UTF8 and http://jnutra.com Some of this information is somewhat speculative (or at least not referenced in the manner of Buhner's book) but it is very intriguing and most of it feels quite accurate to me.
When Antibiotics Fail: Lyme Disease and Rife Machines, with Critical Evaluation of Leading Alternative Therapies -- by Bryan Rosner; available at http://www.lymebook.com/ and at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0976379708/qid=1153199048/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/103-6368232-3368631?s=books&v=glance&n=283155

Actually, the product he tried is "Miracle Krystal Salt," which I don't necessarily endorse, but I wanted to set the record straight. Here is a link to their website:
