â€œIf you have suffered from unexplained, chronic or hard-to-treat illness, this book is your pathway to health.â€ â€”Mark Hyman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Blood Sugar Solution on Why Canâ€™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 canâ€™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 â€œthe great imitator,â€ 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 Canâ€™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 â€œpersistersâ€â€”bacteria that can survive antibioticsâ€”and new therapies to get rid of them
*A seven-step action plan that patients and doctors can follow to ensure better health.
