Overview

In Healing Lyme Disease Naturally, anthropologist Wolf D. Storl shares his own success in overcoming a difficult, sometimes deadly disease that is reaching epidemic proportions. When he was diagnosed, Dr. Storl refused standard treatments because of antibiotic intolerance. Instead, he researched healing systems of various cultures including Traditional Chinese Medicine, American Indian healing practices, homeopathy, and traditional Western herbal lore and discovered the teasel root. Teasel, a flowering plant that grows throughout Europe and Asia, tonifies the liver and kidneys, promotes blood circulation, and strengthens the bones and tendons. The plant has been documented to help cure chronic conditions marked by arthritis, sore, stiff muscles, and eventual incapacitation—all symptoms associated with Lyme disease. Dr. Storl’s approach consists of flushing out toxins and inhibiting bacteria by using teasel root as tincture, powder, or tea (available for purchase online and in natural foods stores); stimulating the immune system and detoxifying the body by exposing it to extreme heat (sweat lodges and Japanese baths); and dietary and naturopathic measures, including fresh natural food, exercise, and sufficient sleep. Written in an encouraging, personal tone but based in science and clinical studies, Healing Lyme Disease Naturally offers hope in combating a condition that has stubbornly resisted conventional medical treatment.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“[Wolf] Storl’s fast-paced journey through the material reads like an adventure story of the author’s own migration from sickness to health and of his education in Lyme disease.”
—From the foreword by Matthew Wood, author of The Book of Herbal Wisdom and The Hearthwise Herbal

“Medical anthropologist and herbalist Wolf Storl presents a thoroughly fascinating compendium of science, history, and ethnographic lore on this mysterious and multi-faceted illness.”
—Ralph Metzner, PhD, president of The Green Earth Foundation and author of Green Psychology and MindSpace and TimeStream

“Paracelsus fought against the medical establishment of his time by demonstrating that folk medicine is not just ‘old-wives’ tales,’ and Wolf Storl does the same in this remarkable book.”
—Richard Rudgley, PhD, anthropologist, BBC television presenter, and author of Lost Civilizations of the Stone Age and The Encyclopedia of Phsychoactive Substances

“Wolf Storl uniquely combines science and his personal account of Lyme disease with insightful philosophy. Healing Lyme Disease Naturally is an important contribution to the literature of this misunderstood disease and a delight to read.”
—Kris Hill, herbalist

“Storl’s experience as a well-seasoned anthropologist is evident in his exploration of the relationship between medicine, culture, and politics. … I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in herbalism, natural healing, or the history of chronic disease treatment, and would consider it required reading for anyone dealing with chronic Lyme disease. Storl puts faith in nature’s ability to heal, but also puts responsibility on the patient to create an environment that facilitates healing. … The book is intriguing, and stimulates you to ask many questions and self-reflect. It has spoken to me so clearly with words that reflect my philosophy and desire for my own treatment. Truly one of the best books I’ve read in ages.”
—Kim Christensen, Lymenaide
