The Lyme Disease Solution
Lyme disease is occurring at alarming epidemic rates in the USA as well as other parts of the world. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Singleton, a practicing LLMD, thoroughly covers all aspects of Lyme disease. He does an excellent job of describing the clinical symptoms and diagnostic tests for the Lyme bacterium, as well as similar conditions due to common co-infections such as Bartonella spp. and Babesia spp. He details effective treatment protocols, including both natural and antibiotic forms of treatment. Novel therapies that he successfully uses in his practice, such as low dose naltrexone, are also explained in easy-to-understand terms.
The book also provides helpful information regarding best methods to improve immune function and reduce unwanted Lyme inflammation. It is essential reading for anyone suffering from chronic low-grade inflammation (potentially the majority of all Americans due to the standard American diet and other factors), which is now known to be a primary risk factor for a wide variety of diseases, including arthritis, heart disease and cancer. The information Dr. Singleton provides on how to prevent and reverse chronic inflammation, including his proprietary Lyme Inflammation Diet program, is itself worth the price of the book.
Common problems that occur in the setting of chronic Lyme disease are extensively covered. Important clinical topics and issues he deals with include: how to control chronic pain and inflammation, guidance for managing hormone issues, helpful sleep strategies, methods of improving energy and reducing fatigue, management approaches for anxiety and depression, how to get the “Lyme brain” working well again, getting rid of toxic Lyme debris through detoxification, and useful and practical concepts regarding mind-body healing principles and techniques.
The Lyme Disease Solution should be in the library of all people who have Lyme disease or a related co-infection. Dr. Singleton’s companion book on The Lyme Inflammation Diet (including expanded food choices and many delicious recipes) is due to be released November, 2010.
