People who have suffered for many years recover best when they utilize a comprehensive approach, especially one that includes optimal nutrition. This book is a must-read for anyone who is serious about recovering from chronic illness. The reader will surely benefit from Dr. McFadzeans comprehensive collation of wisdom in a user-friendly format. --Therese Yang, M.D. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Navigating the most appropriate diet for a Lyme disease patient can be difficult, but good nutrition is such a crucial part of any treatment regimen that it is well worth addressing. Food sustains us, nourishes us, and can heal us. Food is medicine. It is one of the most important factors in your treatment program. The Lyme Diet contains a wealth of information about why dietary choices are critical for minimizing inflammation, optimizing immune function, promoting healthy digestion and gut flora, balancing hormones, and detoxifying the body. Dr. Nicola s book is a must-have manual for anyone suffering from such Lyme disease symptoms as fatigue, chronic pain, cognitive deficits, and candidiasis. It also has applications for other chronic illnesses such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, MS, ALS as well as anyone desiring to advance their health goals through nutrition. This ground-breaking publication outlines many practical examples and strategies for implementing nutritional change on a daily basis. It also serves to decode otherwise complex information on nutritional supplements, helpful lab testing, and inexpensive home treatments. Dr. Nicola McFadzean takes a comprehensive approach to treating Lyme disease with patients all over the world. With this invaluable book, she shares the wisdom, insight and solutions that have been, until now, exclusive to her private patients.
