It is so common to feel alone and misunderstood with this disease and these sources will help support you and lead you on your path to health. Furthermore, there are fascinating leading edge therapies and treatments constantly becoming available and these sites and books will offer you hope and you can decide which options are most appealing to you. I was so interested in learning as much as I possibly could when I initially received my Lyme diagnosis I literally spent hours and hours ingesting as much information as I could on this disease. Following are the websites and books that I found the most enlightening and invaluable when it comes to Lyme Disease and co-infections:

Dr. Klinghardt has one of the most brilliant and gifted minds in the world of Chronic Illness and Lyme Disease today. I am absolutely blessed and honoured to be partaking in his treatment protocols and truly feel they are leading me on the path to wellness. I wanted you to have access to his invaluable published articles and treatment approaches as outlined on his fascinating website. You can feel free to browse the following website at length to learn more about his teachings and learn why he truly is a world renowned teacher and healer.
Comprehensive Medical Center is the home of Dr. Klinghardt and his outstanding colleagues. This world renowned center is located in Kirkland, Washington near Seattle. My Lyme journey has recently geared me on the path to Dr. Klinghardt’s Medical Center and I am extremely fortunate to be in the hands of such fabulous and warm hearted practitioners. Their services and techniques are on the leading edge of treatment protocols in the world of Chronic Illness and Lyme.
I absolutely love how the practitioners tailor each individual’s protocol to their own very specific needs as each person is affected differently by this illness and their body responds in very distinct ways. In my Lyme journey I have come to understand (although it took me a long time!) that Lyme is very rarely the main culprit in this crazy illness. My fabulous practitioner has helped me to make sense of this whole maze and has clarified the main issues beautifully. Comprehensive Medical Center truly approaches treatment with a whole body approach to make sure you are getting the best care possible and to leave no stone unturned.
I have learned so much since my first visit to Comprehensive in July 2010! I thought I knew a lot about Lyme…… that is until I started my treatment at the clinic! Having already gained a wealth of knowledge, it is my sincere pleasure to share as much of these resources with you as I possibly can. Please take a look at the following website to learn more about what the clinic has to offer.
Online Support Groups are a great resource to share treatment ideas, gain intelligent information and feel the warm embrace of other kindhearted people dealing with Lyme and Chronic Illness. If you feel this could be an avenue to pursue for you, I highly recommend CanLyme which is a Canadian Support Group which helped me tremendously when I was first diagnosed with Lyme. This support group contains so many caring and kind people dedicated to helping others heal from Lyme. Also, LymeNet in the U.S. is particularly beneficial in that you can learn about the newest and exciting treatment approaches that are sometimes limited to us here in Canada.

Here is a list of Lyme books currently available that outshine the rest and I have personally read each book. If you are having difficulty finding them in bookstores all of them can be ordered online at Amazon:
“The Lyme Disease Solution” by Kenneth B. Singleton
“The Lyme Disease Survival Guide” by Connie Strasheim
“The Top 10 Lyme Disease Treatments” by Bryan Rosner
“Healing Lyme” by Stephen Buhner
“Cure Unknown” by Pamela Weintraub
“Insights into Lyme Disease Treatment – 13 Lyme-Literate Health Care Practitioners Share Their Healing Strategies” by Connie Strasheim (*In my opinion, this is the most outstanding Lyme book to date!)
“Confronting Lyme Disease – What Patient Stories Teach Us” by Karen P. Yerges and Rita L. Stanley
“Lab 257″ by Michael Carroll (*This book may not be for everyone as it highlights some incredibly disturbing true facts surrounding the Government’s Secret Germ Laboratory)
“From Fatigued to Fantastic” by Jacob Teitelbaum (*Excellent resource for those suffering with Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia. Lyme can be the underlying culprit in these illnesses and symptoms may overlap. I found it to contain really useful information and can indeed be helpful in many forms of chronic illness.)
