Cure Unknown: Inside the Lyme Epidemic (Hardcover)
by Pamela Weintraub (Author)
With a CDC-estimated 200,000-plus new cases of Lyme disease a year, it has surpassed both AIDS and TB as the fastest-spreading infectious disease in the U.S. Yet alarmingly, in many cases, because the disease often eludes blood tests and not all patients exhibit the classic “bulls-eye” rash and swollen joints, doctors are woefully unable or unwilling to diagnose Lyme. When that happens, once-treatable infections become chronic, inexorably disseminating to cause disabling conditions that may never be cured.The most comprehensive book ever written about the past, present and future of Lyme disease, this exposes the ticking clock of a raging epidemic.
The Lyme Disease Solution (Paperback)
by James A. Duke (Foreword), Kenneth B. Singleton (Author)
This book I can personally vouch for – it has very easy to follow chapters which explain in doctors terms & layman’s terms the different parts of the body that are affected by chronic Lyme disease, how to get treated & how to bolster your immune system with supplements. The author has suffered from chronic Lyme disease & now treats other patients so is able to appreciate the difficulties that a person with Lyme goes through on a daily basis. I am really enjoying learning from this book!
Also check out the book Recipes for Repair based on the Lyme imflammation diet Dr Singleton describes in his book: http://www.lymedoctor.com/recipes-for-repair–cookbook.html

*FREE 2009 UPDATED BABESIA TEXTBOOK*
Dr James Schaller has provided this 145 page e-book FREE!
by Stephen Buhner
Stephen Harrod Buhner, master herbalist and expert on indigenous and contemplative spiritual traditions, offers a comprehensive program of potent herbs that can be used—either alone or in combination with antibiotics—for healing Lyme disease and co-infections.
His book Healing Lyme painstakingly outlines the characteristics of Borrelia burgdorferi (the spirochete that causes Lyme disease), Babesia, Erlichia, Bartonella and other co-infectors. He also details the actions of herbs such as andrographis, resveratrol, arteminisin, and cat’s claw, and explains how they can be combined to treat the symptoms—and bacterial infections—of Lyme disease.
These herbs are extremely potent and it is highly recommended that they be used under a knowledgeable practitioner’s guidance in an individualized plan based on your co-infections and health history. Herxes (die-off reactions) can be extremely powerful and great care must be taken.
Book Review of, “The Top 10 Lyme Treatments”, by Bryan Rosner
Reviewed by Janet Fitzgerald
I am only like “The Fool”, of the tarot deck, just beginning my journey. Not my life journey, which is no doubt, shorter ahead than it is behind, but my Lyme journey.
Infected in 2007, and it now being the dwindling days of 2009, I have been through several General Practitioners, and a few Specialists (Disease and otherwise). I have been treated with oral and IV antibiotics since diagnosis near a year ago. I still suffer with the same pain and numerous neurological Lyme symptoms that I began with, unabated.
“The Top 10 Lyme Disease Treatments”, by Bryan Rosner, is only the second book on Lyme I have read in full, although I have read extensive articles by medical professionals and Lyme sufferers on line. The first book I read was by Kenneth Singleton M.D “The Lyme Disease Solution”. So the ensuing opinions should be considered in the light that I am not an expert, I have no medical background (and I never wished to have one) but perhaps like you dear reader, I have been thrust screaming and kicking into the world of chronic Lyme despite my former blissful ignorance.
I will not here detail Rosner’s prolific advise, as it would best benefit the reader to avail of the actual text, but will reserve my remarks for the general guidelines and attitude expressed therein.
I think that regards the Lyme Wars, most would find Rosner’s views about as far left as conceivable. Rife Machine treatment is one of Rosner’s core recommendations. Rife machines? This is the first I have ever heard of them. If I had heard of them before I had contracted Lyme, I might have considered my toaster to be as likely to cure someone of a chronic disease. But before 2007, I would also have never believed that the bite of an insect barely larger than a grain of sand would alter my life to such an extent for the past three years, and into the foreseeable future.
While reading about the invention of the Rife machine I was holding my breath, waiting for Rosner to reveal what seemed the inevitable, that Rife was back-engineered from technologies of advanced extraterrestrial civilisations. Though I also couldn’t help but acknowledge, that back in the early 60s my Grandmother died of stomach caner. At the age of 16, this was my first introduction to the world of disease and suffering. I have since been acutely aware of the Christmas’ passing, and the never ending cancer research fund raising with the bell ringers installed outside shops, and the Daffodil Days in early spring here in Ireland. All these many years, and the best research has come up with is nearly killing the patient in the effort to kill the disease, with chemotherapy and radiology. When you consider the incomes of major pharmaceutical companies, you begin to think that there is a lot of money to be made in keeping sick people sick. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_pharmaceutical_companies
If the Rife machine doesn’t work, I’d love to think it does. If someone I personally knew said it helped them, I wouldn’t hesitate giving it a go. But, the one person I know that has actually used one, isn’t that impressed with results. But they are getting better, though it would be very difficult to determine which of the many treatments they are following, is actually responsible for that improvement.
Until more convincing testimony is forthcoming, I think I will opt out of purchasing a Rife Machine. One just can not jump on every Lyme cure bandwagon that passes by. The pockets of the ill, are all too soon emptied. Rosner claims you can buy a Rife Machine for 2,000 USA dollars, but if you fork out for that and it doesn’t help, and then you put out another few thousand for whatever next comes along, and it doesn’t work – soon you will find yourself not only sick, but sick and homeless.
A mini guide to the Buhner Protocol – very handy!
I recommend his book too:

How to be sick: A Buddhist-inspired guide for the chronically ill and their caregivers (Wisdom Publications, 2010)
by Toni Bernhard
This book is not about how to get sick or how to stay sick. It’s about how to “be” when you are sick. How to have a worthwhile existence, finding meaning, purpose and joy, even when chronic illness seems to have stolen your life away.
“The key to wise action for the chronically ill, then, is to avoid extremes. If we veer too far to the one side and act as if we have the stamina and physical abilities we used to have, we risk overexertion that could land us in bed for days. But if we veer too far to the other side of the road (for example, lie in bed in a fetal position, as I did for several months early on in my illness), we risk falling into despair.”
