Paperback, 420 Pages, $39.95

Recent years have brought dramatic changes in how top doctors are treating Lyme disease. New paradigms in Lyme disease treatment have emerged and are helping people to recover, even those that have failed years of treatments. This book is based on interviews with ten leading Lyme doctors, and takes you deep into their treatment programs, so you can see for yourself what is new and different about modern Lyme treatment. No matter how many Lyme disease books you’ve already read, you don’t want to miss the new treatment strategies presented in this book.

Writer Connie Strasheim is no stranger to interviewing Lyme disease doctors. This is the second doctor interview book she has written on the topic of treating Lyme disease.Her first, entitled Insights Into Lyme Disease Treatment, was a bestseller within the Lyme disease community and was based on interviews with over a dozen Lyme-treating physicians. Connie’s experience in health care journalism (with a specific focus on Lyme disease) has allowed her to become an expert in extracting only the most important information from busy doctors who have a treasure vault of Lyme treatment wisdom stored in their brains.

In her interviews with the doctors, Connie asks a broad array of questions designed to bring you the most cutting-edge, practical, and useful information possible. The Internet age has ushered in a near-infinite number of ways to research Lyme disease. But wisdom on the best way to successfully overcome Lyme disease isn’t found in a Google search, but instead, is contained within the minds of doctors who treat this disease day-in and day-out, and who have experience treating thousands of patients.

Traveling to have appointments with each of the doctors interviewed in this book would take weeks, and cost thousands of dollars. And even if you did make the trips, would the doctors have enough time to answer all of your questions? Would you even know which questions to ask? Here, Connie does all the hard work for you, so that you can read about new, important paradigms and tools in Lyme disease treatment from the comfort of your own home. These tools, which are bringing healing, life, and new hope to thousands, may do just the same for you!

“Connie Strasheim’s New Paradigms in Lyme Disease Treatment is a MUST-READ for anyone who has Lyme disease; for those who suspect that they might have it or who are concerned about exposure to it, and for those who have friends or family members with it. It is packed with plenty of NEW, useful and easy-to-understand information about Lyme, its coinfections and various co-conditions. For this book, Connie interviewed ten leading Lyme specialists, including one from Germany, one from Canada and eight from the USA –all of which have an integrative approach to treatment. The experts all agree that certain treatment steps are essential for recovery, but all have a unique treatment approach and provide their own pearls of wisdom. I congratulate Connie for a job VERY well done!”

Foreword by Steve Harris, M.D.


“New Paradigms in Lyme Disease Treatment: 10 Top Doctors Reveal Healing Strategies that Work provides patients with an informative, well-rounded, and insightful perspective on the possible solutions to Lyme disease. As a healthcare professional myself, I thought the book was truly fascinating and provided me with information that I was able to apply to my practice. I would highly recommend this book to those with Lyme or to the loved ones of those who are suffering from it.”

Leigh Erin Connealy, MD

Director, Center for New Medicine

“With patients being stuck in the medical merry-go-round and the confusion that exists in the Lyme disease community, it’s important to learn from those that are getting patients well. I highly recommend this book, as Connie Strasheim has her pulse on what is working and what you as a reader need to learn about. There is hope for improving your health and this is one tool in the toolbox for that.”

Jay Davidson, DC

Host, Chronic Lyme Disease Summit

“A masterful summation and well-researched overview of Lyme disease and its co- infections. Reflecting years of clinical experience and medical wisdom, this book shares a variety of cutting edge integrative and functional medicine tools and is an invaluable resource to clinicians and patients alike. A must read for anyone dealing with Lyme disease.”

Sean Devlin, DO, MD(H), MS

Medical Director, Institute of Integrative Medicine and Oncology

“New Paradigms in Lyme Disease Treatment is one of the best books that I have seen on the topic of Lyme disease in years. I simply could not put it down. If only I had had this book 20 years ago, it would have saved me so much time and money. The collection of interviews is like finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The book provides very specific and powerful treatment approaches to Lyme and is a comprehensive collection of the latest and greatest integrative treatment options from several of my heroes in the treatment of Lyme disease.

One of the things that I really like about the book is that it goes beyond what we normally think of as “Lyme disease” treatments and looks at the many factors that have to be considered to regain optimal health. These include mold illness, environmental toxicity, electromagnetic pollution, parasites, emotional healing, dental issues, methylation, SIBO, hormones, and much more.

The comprehensive list of treatment options includes things such as coffee enemas, ozone therapies, low-dose immunotherapy; vasoactive intestinal peptide, bio-magnetic and herbal treatments; antibiotics, low-dose naltrexone, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, ionic foot baths, and much more. It opens your eyes to the many powerful tools that we have available to regain our health.

It is a comprehensive resource that will change the way that you think about recovering from Lyme disease and make you feel more empowered to obtain wellness. How can it get any better than that?”

Scott Forsgren

Editor and Founder,

“If you have been diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease, I strongly recommend that you read this book. If you’ve been diagnosed with any chronic and difficult to treat, or so-called “untreatable” disease, I also strongly recommend that you read this book. Connie Strasheim has interviewed ten very experienced doctors who are skilled in integrative medicine to discuss their experience in treating Lyme disease and chronic illness, and the techniques that they describe in beautiful detail are suitable as the core of a treatment plan for any chronic and difficult, or even so-called “impossible” to treat disease.

Our understanding of Lyme disease is evolving and it is now clear that the simple-minded approach to infectious disease that we doctors were all taught in medical school just does not work for Lyme disease. The notion that you simply identify the bug, identify the drug, and then go to war against the bugs by applying the drug to the patient is clearly a strategy that has not, and does not, work for chronic Lyme disease. All of the contributors to this book have a sophisticated understanding about the need to support the patient if you want to cure the malady, and all have been generous in sharing the materials and methods that they use at their clinics.

Dealing with chronic Lyme disease, and chronic disease in general, demands an approach that heals, strengthens and restores the patient. Also, healing is never about just treating Lyme or the co-infections that the patient is afflicted with. Every contributor to this work describes the complex mix of microbes and toxins that are present in all people with chronic conditions such as Lyme. You may have a lab test that shows the presence of Lyme disease, but you almost certainly are also dealing with, at the very least, viruses and parasites, as well as molds and a gut biome that is completely out of balance. The contributors all realize that the failure of the body to clear an infection is a sign of an immune-compromised host, and that focusing the treatment only on the identified infectious agents will not bring about the healing that doctors and patients both seek.

Some of the contributors to this book routinely use antibiotics to treat their patients, and they clearly state this in their chapters. Yet there are others who use few or no antibiotics, and they too have great success in healing people and restoring them to health. In fact, it is the doctors who have had a long history of treating people unsuccessfully for years with a mix of antibiotics who are able to best testify to how ineffective antibiotics can be when used alone.

What is most gratifying and useful about this book is that Connie Strasheim has been able to encourage the contributors to be very revealing about their strategies and methods, because of her personal understanding of these complex conditions and of the world of integrative medicine. There are so many useful therapies offered by the ten contributors that it might at first seem overwhelming, especially if you are ill and are reading the book, hoping to find direction for your own healing and cure. But be diligent. Patterns emerge throughout the book and there are certain strategies that are embraced by all of the clinicians, such as paying attention to the health of the gut, as well as to detoxification and diet, and healing the adrenals and hormonal system. This is important because once the body has been strengthened and restored to some degree the choice of antimicrobial compounds for treating Lyme becomes less important. Herbal tinctures and other natural compounds that by themselves may never be sufficient for treating a complex set of co-infections, can become very effective once the patient has a functioning immune system and body.
This book is a treasure house. It is with great gratitude that I encourage you to read it and share it with everyone you know who is struggling with not just Lyme, but any chronic disease. Thank you, Connie.”
