Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) October 19, 2016
Chronic Lyme disease was once thought of as a controversial health condition, but has gained increasing acceptance in the scientific community as a worldwide pandemic. In fact, it is now recognized as the fastest growing infectious disease in the United States and Canada, with over 300,000 new cases every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control. However, even with increased recognition and ongoing scientific research, it remains largely incurable and an enigma to the medical profession. Thousands of Lyme disease patients are still desperately awaiting help.
Yet recent years have brought tremendous progress in Lyme disease treatment. In a new book, New Paradigms in Lyme Disease Treatment: 10 Top Doctors Reveal Healing Strategies that Work, ten leading integrative doctors share some of the newest evidence-based treatments for chronic Lyme disease.
When it is caught early, Lyme disease can be effectively treated with 4-6 weeks of antibiotics, but in many cases, it becomes chronic, at which time complex, long-term treatment regimens are required. Yet few doctors are trained to adequately recognize and treat chronic Lyme, which mimics many other conditions such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia, arthritis, Parkinson’s, lupus and Multiple Sclerosis.
This is because Lyme is a systemic disease that affects and creates dysfunction in every system of the body. It primarily affects the nervous system, brain, heart, joints and connective tissue, although all of the organs and systems are impacted, and effective treatment for chronic Lyme can take anywhere from six months up to several years.
The challenges inherent in treating this complex disease underscore the need for better diagnostic methods and treatment tools, and New Paradigms in Lyme Disease Treatment aims to provide those.
For the book, medical researcher and writer Connie Strasheim interviewed doctors from the United States, Canada and Germany, and dedicated each chapter in the book to a specific doctor’s protocol and treatment philosophy. The chapters encompass information on how to treat Lyme infections, as well as how to heal the body using supportive tools such as hormone replacement, nutrition and detoxification therapy.
Patients can read the book to better understand the different treatment options available to them, while clinicians can read it to get a better understanding of how they can help their patients. The book also contains tools that people with Lyme can use at home and which can help them to feel better until they are able to collaborate with a Lyme-literate doctor for their care.
The antimicrobial strategies that are described in New Paradigms in Lyme Disease Treatment range from long-term antibiotic therapy, to herbal remedies, ozone, hyperthermia, biomagnetism, peptide therapy and low dose immunotherapy—among others. These treatments have been proven through studies and patient experience to be effective for many.
New Paradigms in Lyme Disease Treatment is a follow-up to Connie Strasheim’s 2009 doctor interview book, Insights into Lyme Disease Treatment: 13 Lyme-Literate Health Care Practitioners Share Their Healing Strategies. The doctors represented in the 2016 book are different than those who participated in the 2009 book, but the format of the book is similar in that each chapter is dedicated to a specific doctor’s treatment protocol.
New Paradigms in Lyme Disease Treatment is unique from other Lyme-related books because it provides a diverse assortment of treatment options from doctors who belong to vastly differing schools of thought. It also provides an in-depth look at how to heal the body from Lyme, and not just eliminate infections, the latter of which is a strategy that is rarely sufficient for treating chronic Lyme disease.
