Excellent book- Lyme Disease: The Ecology of a Complex System
- Ostfeld, Richard
||Most human diseases come from nature, from
pathogens that live and breed in non-human animals and are
"accidentally" transmitted to us. Human illness is only the
culmination of a complex series of interactions among species in their
natural habitats. To avoid exposure to these pathogens, we must
understand which species are involved, what regulates their abundance,
and how they interact. Lyme disease
affects the lives of millions of people in the US, Europe, and Asia.
It is the most frequently reported vector-borne disease in the United
States; About 20,000 cases have been reported each year over the past
five years, and tens of thousands more go unrecognized and unreported.
Despite the epidemiological importance of understanding variable LD
risk, such pursuit has been slow, indirect, and only partially
successful, due in part to an overemphasis on identifying the small
of 'key players' that contribute to Lyme disease risk, as well as a
general misunderstanding of effective treatment options.

of Chronic Lyme-51 Case Reports by Burton
A Waisbren Sr. MD is a founding member of the Infectious Disease
in the field of Lyme disease research believe that this new
book may be the most important Lyme disease
book ever written.
But Dr. Waisbren's credentials and
experience go much further. Not only is Dr. Waisbren a current
Fellow of the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), he is also one
of its founding members! Why does this matter? The IDSA is a
prestigious physicians' society that has generally taken the position
that chronic Lyme disease is not a scientifically-proven medical
condition, or at least, that it should not be treated with long-term
antibiotics in most circumstances.
What sets this book apart from other Lyme-related books are the
credentials of the physician who wrote it: Dr. Burton Waisbren, MD, FACP,
FIDSA, has been practicing medicine for over 57 years, and has
published research on Lyme disease in prestigious journals such as The
Lancet. In this book, he shares the treatment strategies and protocols
that he utilized in 51 cases of chronic Lyme disease, and presents
essays containing his professional analysis of the cases.
Many believe that the IDSA's position on this issue has negatively
impacted the credibiltiy of Lyme disease physicians who desire to help
their patients with chronic Lyme disease. The IDSA's policies have drawn
fire from numerous important people, including politicians like Richard
Blumenthal, a United States Senator from Connecticut and former
Connecticut Attorney General.
Dr. Waisbren's new book, Treatment
of Chronic Lyme Disease: 51 Case Reports and Essays in Their Regard,
explains that chronic Lyme disease is, in fact, a real medical
condition which demands appropriate and aggressive treatment. This
landmark book, which originates from one of the founding members of the
IDSA itself, is an important step in helping Lyme sufferers gain
recognition, a voice, and vindication in their desire to get healed,
recover, and live normal lives. In addition to the credibility that this
doctor brings to the Lyme disease community, you will also find
important treatment strategies and meticulous documentation inside the
With over 57 years experience in medicine, Dr. Waisbren's
methodologies for managing chronic Lyme disease will be useful to
everyone involved in Lyme disease treatment, including patients,
physicians, and researchers.
As a result of this doctor's credentials and credibility, this book can be used to educate your family, friends, and local
physician(s) about the realities of chronic Lyme disease. Never before
has a book been available from such a reliable, authoritative source.
You can buy
multiple copies of the book at a discount to give away. Whether
you order just one copy, or multiple copies, the book has been priced
affordably so that everyone can own it and share this important message
about chronic Lyme disease.
By reading this book, you will have the chance to go behind the scenes
in Dr. Waisbren's medical clinic and discover the treatments he uses to
fight chronic Lyme disease. With an engaging and informative writing
style, you will learn about 51 of Dr. Waisbran's chronic Lyme disease
patients, the treatments he used for them, and their clinical outcomes
(when available). You will also read eleven essays by Dr. Waisbren
covering a wide range of topics and ideas. Buy
the book to discover the following information:
- Which antibiotics and
combinations of antibiotics Dr. Waisbren uses with his patients.
- Dr. Waisbren's
theories on chronic Lyme disease and related medical conditions such
as ALS, Multiple Sclerosis, and others.

Biological Weapons and America's Secret War
However, it is not only
America's Secret War, the book tells about supposed stockpiles of
weapons grade germs in many countries. It
makes sense that scientists and scientific departments in our government
who have the burden of trying to keep us "safe" - would do
many experiments regarding germ warfare especially when one considers
that scientists in other countries were doing similarly
like having nuclear weapons - if all have them, "they" say we
will be safe because everyone will be afraid to use them in the first
for fear of retaliation.
wonder what the thinking is with weapons grade germs? Then
another question is how is it that no major catastrophes have happened yet?
Or is the key word, YET?
Lyme and tick-borne disease
are catastrophic for many people, but although there are a few pages
in GERMS about Lyme disease, in this book, there is no definitive
answer to the question - "is it or is it not or has it or has it
not been made into a weapons grade organism or genetically modified in
some way in a laboratory."

book Politics in Healing
by Daniel Haley
by popular demand! After several years out of print, this famous
book is now available again. Written by Daniel Haley, a former New York
State Assemblyman, the book is uniquely able to tell the story of the
damage that greed and political influence has wrought on our nation's
healthcare alternatives. Haley gathers 12 medical outsiders'
stories to support his theory that the AMA, FDA, and big pharmaceutical
companies conspire to prevent new ideas from entering medical research
and practice. His subjects include Andrew Ivy, who advocated the
discredited anticancer drug Krebiozen; anticancer herbalist Harry Hoxsey;
anticancer blood researcher Gaston Naessens; and antineoplastin
researcher Stanislaw Burzynski. Those persecuted medical
investigators are fairly well known, but some of Haley's other cases
concern forgotten men like William Koch, developer of the antipolio drug
Glyoxylide, whom many may find more interesting because of their
obscurity... Excerpt from

To assess the economic impact of Lyme disease (LD), the most common
vectorborne inflammatory disease in the United States, cost data were
collected in 5 counties of the Maryland Eastern Shore from 1997 to 2000.
Patients were divided into 5 diagnosis groups, clinically defined
early-stage LD, clinically defined late-stage LD, suspected LD, tick bite,
and other related complaints. From 1997 to 2000, the mean per patient direct
medical cost of early-stage LD decreased from $1,609 to $464 (p<0.05),
and the mean per patient direct medical cost of late-stage LD decreased from
$4,240 to $1,380 (p<0.05). The expected median of all costs (direct
medical cost, indirect medical cost, nonmedical cost, and productivity
NOTE: Education and information can
help patients and their doctors, especially since we are in the infancy of
tick borne diseases and dealing with an ongoing controversy about Lyme and
associated diseases. We need to see books tracking individual cases of
chronic Lyme disease, books on emerging tick borne diseases, books on Lyme
Induced Autism, and books on misdiagnosis of Lyme as ALS, MS, fibromyalgia,
Chronic Fatigue, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and so on.
