Now completely revised and updated-the bible for the thousands who contract Lyme disease each year
Lyme disease, transmitted through the bite of a tick, is one of our nation's fastest-growing epidemics. Since "Coping with Lyme Disease" was first published in 1993, the number of sufferers afflicted by this debilitating condition has grown alarmingly.
Every chapter has been thoroughly revised and new information about the long-term neurological effects of Lyme disease and congential and chronic versions of the illness has been added.
This comprehensive guide includes
- basic prevention tips
- a detailed catalog of the physical and psychological symptoms to look for
- a complete look at the medical and home care options and insurance policies available to patients
- a special discussion of Lyme's effects on women, children, and the elderly
- an expanded resource guide, with listings of news publications, state-by-state support groups, and special family services
This fully updated third edition informs readers of the latest medical findings in diagnosing and treating Lyme disease-providing crucial information about newly discovered Lyme-related illnesses, electromagnetic procedures, clinical and antibiotic therapies, and curative nutritional products now on the market. A longtime bestseller, this authoritative book is an essential tool for all Lyme disease sufferers.
