From one of the country's foremost doctors comes a groundbreaking book about diagnosing, treating and healing Lyme, and peeling away the layers that lead to chronic disease.
You may not know that you have Lyme. It can mimic disease processes including chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, autoimmune conditions such as multiple sclerosis, psychiatric conditions such as depression and anxiety, and cause significant memory and concentration problems, mimicking early dementia. It is called the "Great Imitator," and inaccurate testing (combined with a fierce, ongoing debate that questions chronic infection) makes it difficult for sufferers to find effective care.
When Dr. Richard Horowitz moved to the Hudson Valley more than two decades ago to start his own medical practice, he had no idea that he was jumping into a hotbed of Lyme disease. He would soon realize that many of the chronic disease diagnoses people were receiving were also the result of Lyme … and he would discover how once-treatable infections, in the absence of timely intervention, could cause dis¬abling conditions. In a field where the number of cases is growing exponentially around the world and answers remain elusive, Horowitz has treated more than 12,000 patients and made extraordinary progress. His plan represents a crucial paradigm shift, without which the suffering will continue.
In this book, Horowitz:
Cutting through the frustration, misinformation and endless questions, Horowitz's enlightening story of medical discovery, science and politics is an all-in-one source for patients of chronic illness to identify their own symptoms and work with their doctors for the best possible treatment outcome.

This approach to horse training offers everyone who works with horses - novice or expert - a new understanding of how humans work and interact with horses and how doing so can lead to spiritual awakening. Horses have evolved to understand and respond to the flow of vital energy - chi - around them, using it to communicate with members of their herd, express dominance, and sense danger from nearby predators. Being quietly present and receptive to your horse’s chi opens the potential of your emotional, intuitive right brain, awakening your deep sensitivity, calm leadership, intuition, and mindfulness.
