  • Recognizing the symptoms of Lyme disease
  • Finding the best medical treatment

Review:

Lyme disease is so difficult to detect that the average sufferer sees five physicians before the disease is properly diagnosed. Thirty-five percent of Lyme disease patients suffer permanent bodily damage, and 17 percent lose their jobs. Karen Vanderhoof-Forschner fared even worse than that: she contracted the disease while pregnant (it was misdiagnosed as arthritis), and passed it on to her unborn child, who died when he was 6. She became an expert on ticks and the diseases they spread, started the Lyme Disease Foundation, and compiled all her knowledge into this book, a handy guide for anyone living in tick-infested areas.

From the Publisher:

This is the first book to address not only Lyme but also other tick-related diseases that are a threat to public health. A layperson's guide to the best treatment and prevention of Lyme Disease and other tick-spread diseases. Covers online information and appendixes will cover: self-help groups and other supportive organizations, products, services, state medical complaint boards, drugs, medical glossary, reading list, etc. The author is responsible for founding and leading the Lyme Disease Foundation, the largest and most influential organization dedicated to Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases.
