The FUTURE of Healing is in this Book 31 Jan. 2013
By Gabi - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Oh where do I begin? After an extensive library of books on Lyme Disease, this book is by far the most INFORMATIVE yet!! It reveals the true cause behind Lyme (and all other auto-immune diseases). I'm not talking about the conspiracy theories; I'm talking about the deficiencies in our body and environment that make us more prone. Why is it that one person suffers from Lyme so badly but the next person in the family (who is even more "out-doorsy") doesn't?? This book begins to cover the possible causes of immune dysfunction (like Lyme), but even more important the SOLUTIONS for true healing....and I mean cutting edge solutions that no doctor can inform you on (at least not in one or even 10 doctor's visits!). Connie has been through it herself and understands the ins and outs of all the different treatments (she wrote another great book on "The Insights Into Lyme Disease Treatments: 13 Lyme-Literate Health Care Practitioners Share Their Healing Strategies" that further detail this). This book ("Beyond Lyme Disease") differs in that it really looks at the whole of the person and breaks down each and every assault that the body potentially gets and identifies the possible weaknesses these cause. She goes on to, without compensation from any of the companies, give the names of all the products, protocols, and supplements that have proven to be helpful and possibly even harmful to the immune-compromised crowd (Lyme and others). She is clearly (IMHO) on the cutting edge of what is working and what's not. She has interviewed enough people, tried her own gamut of products to make anyone's head spin, and identified the most useful pieces of the problem (and SOLUTIONS) and weaved them together in this latest book. I really appreciate her diligence in fighting for those who have become too weak to fight or comprehend what really works. She is thorough, diligent, and a relentless fighter in this war against LYME (and now subsequently, other auto-immune diseases). What a shame doctors aren't educated in this arena that Connie knows so much about. What an asset she is to the medical community! Can't recommend her enough! Beside's Connie's EXCELLENT books, I also liked Stephen Buhner's "Healing Lyme" and Perry Fields "Tick Slayer" book (a great read). Here's hoping you are all recovering well out is such an underestimated disease...I am wishing you all wellness from here.

Absolutely the best book I've ever read regarding chronic illness 8 Nov. 2012
By Darlena - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is amazing, whether you have Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia, Parasite,Mold Illness or many other chronic illnesses... It is well written and easy to understand, even if one of your symptoms is brain fog. It not only lets you know how these things can all be tied together, what the symptoms can be and what to do about them....

This book literally has helped me change my life....

Connie Strasheim is an incredible writer and understand so much more than most because she has lived it.....

Reverse the cards stacked against your health 22 Nov. 2012
By Godhealslyme - Published on
Format: Paperback
I believe that most people in the world are infected with tick-borne infectious pathogens in life, yet not everyone gets sick with Lyme Disease and coinfections. Of those that do, not everyone recovers. Statistically, not too many people recover from chronic Lyme Disease. This book examines why those that get sick with Lyme Disease and coinfections are likely those who already have co-conditions in their bodies which render them susceptible to infectious disease, and how Lyme Disease patients are at great risk for developing further co-conditions which further complicate recovery. The knowledge in this book can be used by Lyme patients in the attempt to systematically unstack all the cards stacked against them in their endeavor to return to health, and increase their probability of recovery in the natural realm. One example of something I learned from the book I did not know was that most Lyme patients, in taking 5 million supplements a day, which most of them do, further tax adrenals that are already taxed by fighting infection, which can in turn downregulate your thyroid and create other problems. Highly recommend this book.

Readable, comprehensive, Lyme Disease and insect coinfection book, 16 May 2013
By Steven Sponaugle - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Will update my review, after finishing this book, but have been amazed just by reading parts, especially mold toxicity section.

This is the most thorough, practical information I have seen explaining how to survive indoor mold and water damaged sick buildings. In addition to discussing Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker's complex medical treatment of sick building syndrome, she discusses the relative effectiveness of cholestyramine, activated charcoal, and clay neurotoxin binders. She discusses diffusing essential oils, ozonation and HEPA filtering with activated charcoal, to decontaminate water damaged buildings. She also discusses mold contamination in automobiles and the ERMI DNA test for determining relative mold contamination in buildings.

One additional recommendation I would add for mold sensitive readers is remove carpeting from footwell of your automobiles. If you do not believe this is worth doing, try the following experiment:

Obtain a mold culture dish from the local hardware store, some sterile cotton swabs and sterile saline solution from a drug store. Wet the sterile coton swab with sterile saline and roll it across carpet, then across mold culture dish medium. You may be stunned to see what grows in, in five days.

Your automobile carpet is a mold magnet and your automobile can become a mold incubator, when it is parked in a shadeless parking lot, with windows closed. It is especially difficult to keep carpeting dry, when snow and slush are being tracked in and freeze at night, in winter. With all of the windows closed and the heater blower or air conditioner running, your automobile can become a gas chamber, if toxic mold is inside. Aspergillus spores are small, light and can easily become airborne, in a slight wind current. Aspergillus molds are almost always present in wet, water damaged indoor environments.

She provides links and references to many websites, studies and products.

Unlike some of the best books discussing Lyme Disease, Bartonella, Babesia, Ehrlichia, nutritional and hormonal deficiency, she provides a thorough index.

In addition she has incredibly survived Lyme Disease, mold toxicity, adrenal fatigue and many of the other afflictions she discusses. I do not see any evidence of brain fog in her books, although she has mentioned brain fog was one of her problems previously.

Ms. Strasheim explained that addressing adrenal fatigue was almost as important for her as eliminating Lyme disease, Bartonella and Babesia infections.

Connie compassionately and insightfully wrote this book, so brain fogged readers can read it.

Connie wrote an entire chapter discussing "electro-smog," and how to reduce exposure to biological effects of electromagnetic radiation from cell phones, computers, photocopiers, etc. This section is extensively referenced. I am still skeptical that reducing electromagnetic radiation exposure is required to recover from the insect transmitted infections, since I know people who recovered from Lyme disease, without any effort to reduce these exposures.

Connie explains adverse effects to cells begin with 0.2 milligauss of magnetic wave exposure, but safety guidelines in North America allow 833 milligauss exposure continuously. She purchased a 3 axis RF field strength meter and gaussmeter, which she used to find a lower radiation neighborhood to live in.

When it's time to look beyond Lyme disease 9 April 2013
By Touched by Lyme (Dorothy Kupcha Leland) - Published on
Format: Paperback
Author Connie Strasheim has written five books about Lyme disease and other chronic illnesses. She's come to believe there are two groups of people with Lyme disease:

1. Those whose main health problems are caused by Lyme and other tick-borne infections

2. Those who have a whole lot of complicated health problems, of which Lyme and coinfections are only a small part.

She wrote her most recent book, "Beyond Lyme Disease," for the second group. She maintains that other conditions--not Lyme alone--may actually be the primary cause of their woes.

Chapter One is devoted to adrenal insufficiency, which can be both a cause and an effect of chronic illness. The adrenal glands are involved in immune function and the body's stress response. They regulate blood sugar levels, blood pressure and inflammation, among other things. Problems with the adrenals can lead to hypothyroidism. Alas, treating hypothyroidism without addressing its underlying cause can make the situation worse. Strasheim asserts that properly addressing adrenal fatigue and related hyperthyroidism may be central to a patient's ability to recover.

Next, she looks at nutrient deficiencies and other food-related issues. The nutritional content of food in the United States has changed vastly in the last 60 years. A case in point: in 1951, three spears of broccoli contained 130 mgs of calcium and 3500 IU of Vitamin A. By 1999, the nutritional content of an equal serving of broccoli had fallen to 48.3 mgs of calcium and 1542 IU of Vitamin A. Today, those numbers would be even lower. This is just one example of how hard it can be for people to get the nutrition they need. Other problems include genetically modified, pesticide laden foods; food allergies; and differing nutritional needs among individuals.

The author devotes chapters to the following conditions that can also make it harder for people to get well: electromagnetic radiation and pollution; mold and mycotoxins; heavy metal toxicity; parasites; gastrointestinal dysfunction; emotional trauma and depression.

She discusses candida and other fungal issues; opportunistic viruses and bacteria; dental infections and amalgams; structural problems like misalignment of the vertebrae; and when the body is unable to properly detoxify.

Straisheim acknowledges that the need to discover and treat multiple causes of illness can seem overwhelming. Yet, if regular treatment doesn't seem to be helping you, it can be empowering to find new healing strategies. "Beyond Lyme Disease" is an important book for anyone seeking insight into why they seem unable to recover from tick-borne illness.
