    Hi All,

    I just discovered this book yesterday:

    The Tick Slayer - Battling Lyme Disease and Winning

    I've not yet read it, but it's now on my agenda to do so. I've been diagnosed with Lyme, so I have a strong interest in the Lyme aspect. However, this book appears to be about much more than Lyme.

    According to the Table of Contents (see below), it touches on many topics similar to what many pwCFS have researched and/or undertaken. It lists many different therapies the author tried, many of them alternative. I decided to post this primarily because of the wide variety of interesting therapies she tried, including apparently, the ones that helped her fully recover from Lyme.




    Infectious and Autoimmune diseases are on the rise. Many who find themselves ill and given the diagnosis of their disease as chronic have a long journey ahead of them to get answers to their questions and to find the care that they need. Often patients who are chronically ill get shuffled around from one specialist to another, finding themselves more and more frustrated with the health care system.

    The same scenario played out for US Track athlete, Perry Fields after she was given the diagnosis of chronic Lyme disease, but after following the conventional advice of her Lyme specialist and not getting well, she decided to look deeper to find the real root causes of her illness. This led her on a journey of self discovery as she learned what it takes to conquer a devastating illness.

    Writing The Tick Slayer was a calling for Fields after her four-and-a-half year battle to find her cure and be able to continue with her athletic endeavors. I just started getting so many people asking me how I did it and once I realized how rampant the problem was, I wrote the exact book that I wish I had read when I first found out I was ill. I needed someone to tell me that it was indeed curable and to tell me how to do it, diving into every aspect of what gets people sick in the first place. I am giving people answers to complex problems based on experience, Fields says.

    In 2009, Fields made a full recovery and by 2010, with only two months training, qualified for the 2010 US Track and Field Indoor Nationals. Currently enjoying her resurgence in athletics, she continues to be healthier post-disease then pre-disease. She is currently a health coach to people who suffer from autoimmune and infectious diseases and can be contacted through the information provided in her book.
