Autoimmune disease has a new hero. The Tick Slayer, is a true story of a maverick athlete, failed by the medical system, successfully cured herself of the #1 growing infectious disease in the world.
Fields describes the need to write the book, a calling, after a tick bite caused her a 5 year “forced” retirement from track and field, and thousands of people contacting her about how she did it. “I took the path less traveled and was digging REAL deep to find answers to all my medical questions. I was looking for the source of the problem, not just focusing in on the actual bacteria. It took me on a truly whacky and epic journey, so the book is highly entertaining, just from a story point of view.”
After her epic journey to a full recovery, Fields was made aware of the growing epidemic after watching the Lyme documentary, Under Our Skin, which shows the controversy surrounding the disease and the many people deeply affected over the illness (many who are debilitated, including former athletes).
Fields recalls, “I was in tears after I recovered and knew I was going back to my sport, but I couldn’t ignore the 300,000+ new Lyme victims every year. I knew my story was worth telling because it offers more than just hope for people, it puts medical jargon into laymen terms and highlights all of my health discoveries which are going to knock people’s socks off!”
She adds, “It’s not just for people with Lyme disease, it’s going to create many AH-HA moments for anyone affected by an autoimmune disorders. I didn’t just have Lyme, I had all sorts of chronic diseases. My body was totally failing me.”
Fields opens her 2011 track and field season this weekend in Los Angeles and will continue to train in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in preparation for the 2012 Olympic Trails. When Fields speaks of running she admits, “It’s just icing on the cake, but now that I’m back, I have to see how far I can take it. Right now I feel limitless.”
