The Master Speaks!

If you have ME"cfs", Fibromyalgia, ALS, MS or are undiagnosed with serious physical and mental fatigue, pain and/or neurological symptoms and tired of going from doctor to doctor looking for an answer, GET THIS BOOK! Sorry to shout, but this is very important.
I have been sick for 12 years with an ME"cfs" diagnosis. Only two years ago did I find out the CDC's recommended test, which they and the Infectious Disease Society of America claim is 100% accurate (sensitive and specific) is actually only 40 - 60% accurate (depending on the study). I then did an Igenex PCR test, which is much better (but not 100% accurate either- but at least they admit it), which CDC and IDSA warn against. Thanks to the Igenex test, I found out I have Lyme Disease. And thanks to Medicare, which pays for this expensive test, because they deem it "medically necessary."
There are an estimated 1 Million people in the United States that contract Lyme each year, but most are not diagnosed. Many are misdiagnosed with the above-listed diseases. This is a huge epidemic. It is also a significant and growing problem in the UK.
Dr. Horowitz's book is fun to read (for a medical book) and tells you what you need to know to get diagnosed and begin healing. Dr. Horowitz is recognized as the top Lyme doc in the world and this is his first and only book. Just released recently, it is up to date.
Oh yeah, also get this book if you know you have Lyme! :)
Enjoy and happy healing everyone!
