Allie Cashel has suffered from chronic Lyme disease for sixteen years—but much of the medical community refuses to recognize her symptoms as the result of infectious disease. In Suffering the Silence: Chronic Lyme Disease in an Age of Denial, Cashel paints a living portrait of what is often called post-treatment Lyme syndrome, featuring the stories of chronic Lyme patients from around the world and their struggle for recognition and treatment. In the United States alone, at least 300,000 people are diagnosed with Lyme disease each year, and it is estimated that 20 percent of them go on to develop chronic symptoms of the disease, including (but not limited to) muscle and joint pain; digestive problems; extreme fatigue, confusion, and dizziness; sensations of burning and numbness; and immune-system dysfunction. Before reaching a final diagnosis, many of these patients are misdiagnosed with diseases and conditions like lupus, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, anxiety, and even dementia. Despite these numbers and routine misdiagnoses, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) claim it is impossible for the Lyme bacteria to survive in the body after standard antibiotic therapy. For these chronic patients who have their suffering routinely dismissed by doctors—and even family and friends—the social effects of the illness can be as crippling as the disease itself. Suffering the Silence is a personal and provocative call to break the stigma and ignorance that currently surrounds chronic Lyme disease and other misunderstood chronic illnesses—but it is also a message of hope and comfort for Lyme sufferers, encouraging them to share their stories, seek out treatment, and remember that they are not alone.

Seit seiner Kindheit besitzt Anthony William eine einzigartige Gabe: Ein göttlicher Geist flüstert ihm äußerst präzise Informationen zum Gesundheitszustand seiner Mitmenschen ins Ohr. Diese medialen Botschaften zeigen nicht nur, an welcher Krankheit der Betroffene leidet, sondern auch, wie er wieder vollständig gesund wird – und sind dem heutigen Stand der Medizin oft um Lichtjahre voraus. Dieses Buch enthält erstmals das revolutionäre Heilwissen, das sich Anthony William in seiner langjährigen, erfolgreichen Praxis als medizinisches Medium erwarb. Es zeigt die wahren Ursachen von Krankheiten, die in der Medizinwissenschaft als chronisch oder unheilbar gelten, wie beispielsweise Rheumatoide Arthritis, Multiple Sklerose, Typ-2-Diabetes, hormonelle Erkrankungen, chronisches Müdigkeitssyndrom oder Borreliose. Neben der Ursache benennt William einfache, leicht gangbare Wege der Heilung: Detox, Superfoods, Ernährungstipps und eine reinigende 28-tägige Heilkur.

A Guide to Navigating the Labyrinth of Diagnosis and Treatment What if, at this very moment, hundreds of thousands of people were unaware that they were living in midst of an epidemic so large that it dwarfs the AIDS epidemic by sheer numbers in North America? What if this epidemic cut across all populations: women and men, children and adults, the infirm and the fit, the very poor and the very rich? And what if many of our best doctors in cities like New York, London, Paris, Dublin, Sydney and San Francisco were unaware of this very same problem? This epidemic is upon us. It lurks in the most seductive of locations outside our cities - sought after vacation places frequented by urban dwellers. These are the favorite getaway spots for the often millions of people who work in our city centers, many of whom are unaware that they are at risk of infection from this insidious microbe. The epidemic in question is a tick-borne disease, namely the spirochete bacterium Borrelia burdorferi, or Lyme disease, as it is more commonly known. Along with a number of other co-infection pathogens, including deadly viruses, this bacterium has become the scourge of the Northern Hemisphere and is now spreading into Asia and even Australia. In this book, Dr. Bernard Raxlen attempts to answer many of those questions through the perspectives of patients and physicians from around the world, exploring the reasons for the medical myopia that blocks accurate diagnosis and treatment of tick-borne disease. He draws on his thirty years in the field and more than forty thousand clinical hours listening to and treating TBD patients and also invites other expert physicians in TBD from around the world to share their experiences and expertise. His recovered former patient, co-collaborator and Lyme advocate, Allie Cashel, author of Suffering the Silence: Chronic Lyme Disease in an Age of Denial, contributes a section of the book, illuminating life after TBD and the difficulties encountered in the post-Lyme world. Also includes contributions from international authorities Michael Cook, John Lambert, Alonso Canal, Karl McManus, Jennifer Armstrong, and Omar Morales; with illustrations by Rolo Ledesma

Innerhalb kürzester Zeit erkrankt sie schwer, leidet an Wahnvorstellungen und wird binnen weniger Wochen zum Schwerstpflegefall in der Psychiatrie.

Einmal richtig diagnostiziert, sorgen die geeigneten Medikamente rasch und dauerhaft für Genesung und Susannah gewinnt ihr Leben zurück. Ihre Schilderung des Leidensweges ist eine bewegende und aufregende Geschichte über Familie, Liebe, Hoffnung und darüber, wie sich ein perfektes Leben innerhalb kürzester Zeit in eine Katastrophe verwandeln kann.

A Book of the Month Club Main Selection! "Raposo's engaging report on stripping life down will inspire readers looking for manageable tweaks to hectic living." — Publishers Weekly “No cheesy self-help here, The Me, Without is sharply written and massively relatable. Raposo packs a powerful message into an emotional and entertaining read.” — Kaia Roman, author of The Joy Plan At the age of thirty-four, journalist Jacqueline Raposo finds herself sick, single, broke, and wandering in a fog. Despite decades of discipline, her chronic illness is getting worse. Despite hosting a radio show about dating, she hasn't been in love in years. And despite a successful writing career, she's deeply in debt. Weary of trying to solve her problems by adding things to her life, she attempts the opposite and subtracts some of her most constant habits — social media, shopping, sugar, and negative thoughts — for periods of thirty to ninety days over the course of one year. In this intimately curated search for self-improvement (a quest that readers can easily personalize for themselves), Raposo confesses to the sometimes violent and profound shifts in her social interactions, physical health, and sense of self-worth. With the input of doctors, psychologists, STEM experts, and other professionals, she offers fascinating insights into how and why our brains and bodies react as they do to our habits. She also sheds light on the impact of our everyday choices on our mental state. Part memoir, part case study, this book offers you an inspiring example of how to forge your own journey, expose your wounds, and help yourself heal. “Jacqueline is able to make me chuckle with one sentence and then have a deep introspective moment in the next. Her openness and honesty is truly amazing. If you have been looking to examine your relationship with the world, this is the book for you!” — Travis McElroy, host of the podcasts My Brother, My Brother, and Me and The Adventure Zone “So many of us live in terror of deprivation, whether it’s tangible, edible, social, physical, financial, or emotional, because we are terrified of what we’ll see when we’re stripped bare. In Jacqueline Raposo’s brave, rigorous, and vulnerable exploration of what it means to live without, the author uses periods of deliberate abstinence from habits to find new ways to engage with the world, determine what’s been pinning her in place, and reveal the person she truly can be when she’s freed of it all. It’s essential reading for anyone on the cusp of making a major life change — or even a minor one.” — Kat Kinsman, author of Hi, Anxiety
