books to read / things to watch


My dear friends, I have just a few resources in mind that might be helpful for you in your Lyme journey. I tend to be overwhelmed if I have too many resources to read. I hope that narrowing it down to my favorites can be a help to you. Ready?

Everything You Need to Know About Lyme Disease and Other Tick-Borne Disorders — Quite the title, huh? As you might guess, this book is meant to be a resource for everything you need to know about Lyme. It covers the history of Lyme Disease, the infections that ticks spread, the signs and symptoms of Lyme, how to get diagnosed, treatment options, and how to protect yourself and your family.

Healing Lyme: Natural Healing and Prevention of Lyme Borreliosis and its Coinfections — Another lengthy title… but a great book. Stephen Harrod Buhner suggests powerful herbal supplements and medicines that can be used in combination with antibiotics or alone as a possible treatment option.


Under Our Skin — This is a documentary that has been incredibly useful in spreading Lyme awareness. It specifically highlights where the medical and scientific community has been lacking in research and diagnosis. This documentary is free online and has a sequel that you can buy on DVD.

Fight Back with Joy — After reading those books and watching that documentary, you might need an emotional stabilizer. Margaret Feinberg wrote this book after receiving a cancer diagnosis, and it chronicles her time in treatment. It’s not a book about cancer. It’s a book about learning to fight, learning to rest, accepting and asking for help, and finding ways to insert joy. Truth moment – I was already crying about 5 pages in because the things she started to describe were all too familiar. I loved the book.

I hope these can be good resources for you!
