AN INSTANT NATIONAL BESTSELLER!

“Horowitz is one of the most prominent ‘Lyme literate’ physicians...patients wait for months to see him, and several told me that he had essentially cured them of a disease that nobody else seemed able to treat.” ―The New Yorker

“If you have suffered from unexplained, chronic or hard-to-treat illness, this book is your pathway to health.” ―Mark Hyman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Blood Sugar Solution on Why Can’t I Get Better?

From Dr. Richard I. Horowitz, one of the country's foremost doctors, comes a ground-breaking book about diagnosing, treating and healing Lyme, and peeling away the layers that lead to chronic disease.

Are you sick, but can’t find any answers why? Do you have a seemingly unconnected collection of symptoms that leave doctors guessing? Or have you been diagnosed, but found that none of the treatments seems to make a difference? You may have Lyme disease and not even know it. Known as “the great imitator,” Lyme disease and its associated co-infections can mimic the symptoms of and often be misdiagnosed as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, and even depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and psychosis.

In his landmark book, Why Can’t I Get Better?: Solving the Mystery of Lyme & Chronic Disease, renowned internist and leading world expert Dr. Horowitz introduced his revolutionary plan for treating Lyme disease, and chronic diseases in general. Now, in this new handbook How Can I Get Better?, Dr. Horowitz updates his research and offers a direct, actionable step-by-step plan for implementing his 16 MSIDS Diagnostic Map.

You will find:
*The latest pertinent information on the most important scientific discoveries
*Emerging research on bacterial “persisters”―bacteria that can survive antibiotics―and new therapies to get rid of them
*A seven-step action plan that patients and doctors can follow to ensure better health.

Review:

Praise for How Can I Get Better?

"Horowitz give concrete advice to people with seemingly treatment-resistant case. ...He is a compassionate and curious expert [and] he provides an informed, inspiring combination of lifestyle and pharmaceutical tips." ―Booklist

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
