Everything You Need To Know About Lyme Disease
Author: Karen Vanderhoof-Forschner
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
Price: $15.95
Millions of people around the world are infected with Lyme disease, a potentially deadly illness caused by tick bites, and millions more are at risk. Early treatment of this disease is crucial. Everything You Need to Know about Lyme Disease is a comprehensive guide to identification of symptoms, danger zones, support groups, and the best medical treatments available.

Karen Vanderhoof-Forschner, a Lyme disease patient herself, explains in easy-to-understand language how this public health threat has gone underreported and how you can deal with it if you or a family member is stricken. The author details the history of Lyme disease, how it affects the body, how to identify symptoms, and how to tell whether the ticks near your home carry the disease. She also includes helpful tips on how to spot and remove ticks from humans and animals alike.

In addition to Lyme disease, the book discusses other forms of tick-borne diseases, such as cat-scratch disease, Ehrlichopsos, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.

This book is an invaluable resource for people living in rural settings, those who spend a significant amount of time in the wilderness, or even residents of urban environments, where awareness of Lyme disease may be dangerously low.

Ms. Vanderhoof-Forschner writes from experience, and anyone who is concerned about Lyme disease should read this book.
