From 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. You may not know that you have Lyme. It can mimic every disease process including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, autoimmune conditions like MS, psychiatric conditions like depression and anxiety, and cause significant memory and concentration problems, mimicking early dementia. It is called the "Great Imitator," and inaccurate testing-combined with a fierce, ongoing debate that questions chronic infection-makes it difficult for sufferers to find effective care. When Dr. Richard Horowitz moved to the Hudson Valley over two decades ago to start his own medical practice, he had no idea that he was jumping into a hotbed of Lyme disease. He would soon realize that many of the chronic disease diagnoses people were receiving were also the result of Lyme-and he would discover how once-treatable infections, in the absence of timely intervention, could cause disabling conditions. In a field where the number of cases is growing exponentially around the world and answers remain elusive, Dr. Horowitz has treated over 12,000 patients and made extraordinary progress. His plan represents a crucial paradigm shift, without which the suffering will continue. In this book, Dr. Horowitz: - Breaks new ground with a 16 Point Differential Diagnostic Map, the basis for his revolutionary Lyme treatment plan, and an overarching approach to treating all chronic illness. - Introduces MSIDS, or Multiple Systemic Infectious Disease Syndrome, a new lens on chronic illness that may prove to be an important missing link. - Covers in detail Lyme's leading symptoms and co-infections, including immune dysfunction, sleep disorders, chronic pain and neurodegenerative disorders - providing a unique functional and integrative health care model, based on the most up-to-date scientific research, for physicians and health care providers to effectively treat Lyme and other chronic illnesses. Cutting through the frustration, misinformation and endless questions, Dr. Horowitz's enlightening story of medical discovery, science and politics is an all-in-one source for patients of chronic illness to identify their own symptoms and work with their doctors for the best possible treatment outcome.

AN INSTANT NATIONAL BESTSELLER! “Horowitz is one of the most prominent ‘Lyme literate’ physicians...patients wait for months to see him, and several told me that he had essentially cured them of a disease that nobody else seemed able to treat.” —The New Yorker “If you have suffered from unexplained, chronic or hard-to-treat illness, this book is your pathway to health.” —Mark Hyman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Blood Sugar Solution on Why Can’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 can’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 “the great imitator,” 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 Can’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 “persisters”—bacteria that can survive antibiotics—and new therapies to get rid of them *A seven-step action plan that patients and doctors can follow to ensure better health.

Reeling from the pain of being abandoned by her husband—the father of her son—Megan Richardson’s world is closing in around her in a dark haze of depression. She feels lost, without hope or answers. Worse, she must face the death of her beloved mother. She reaches for answers, wondering what really matters in life. Her mother’s final letter to her may hold some of these answers, and Megan clings to hope once again. She reads the letter over and over, desperate to find the meaning of her mother’s last words. Megan tries to understand the lesson the Lord is supposed to be teaching her, but she has pulled away from her faith of late. Perhaps that lesson is hidden within her work as a nurse on a cancer ward. When a patient, a frail young girl, reaches out to save Megan from a panic attack, they make a connection. Sarah heals a bit of Megan’s heart with that moment, and Megan’s life begins to change. She starts searching for God’s place in her life ... and for the man who will make her heart whole again. Megan returns to her family farm in search of the solitude she needs. There she meets Darrin, the new hired man. Is he the answer to her prayers?
