Vienna, VA —This is the story of the case fought and won by Dr. Warren M. Levin on behalf of patients seeking Integrative and Complementary Medicine.

Through his legal battle and final win before the New York State Board of Professional Medical Conduct, Dr. Levin has continued to fight for the rights of physicians throughout the country to provide quality care to their patients and for patients to seek integrative and complementary therapies.

If I had one question for Dr. Burton Waisbren, it would be ~ What’s it like to go to work and sit at the table with the IDSA? Looking very forward to reading this book.

Many people are saying that this is the most important Lyme disease book ever written!

Keep reading to find out why…

One of the biggest obstacles facing patients with chronic Lyme disease is the IDSA (Infectious Diseases Society of America). This prestigious organization has denied the scientific validity of chronic Lyme disease and looks down upon the Lyme-literate physicians who treat it.

The author of this book is not just any Lyme disease doctor!

Dr. Burton Waisbren is not only a current Fellow of the IDSA, he is is also one of it Founding Members! He has been in medical practice for over 57 years and has published Lyme disease research in prestigious journals including, The Lancet.

In this book, he tells us the truth: that chronic Lyme disease is a real medical condition which he has treated dozens of times in his 57+ year career as an infectious disease physician. 
By reading this book, you will find out how Dr. Waisbren is helping his patients and which treatments he has found to be most effective for
chronic Lyme disease.

Excerpt: Dr. Waisbren states that based on his 51 years in “investigative internal medicine”, his training in infectious disease, the medical literature, and all his clinical experience that he has (direct quote) “Come to the conclusion that there is an epidemic of chronic Lyme disease occurring in the United States that warrants more attention than it is getting from the government and the academic medical establishment. It is hard for me to believe that the fifty one cases of what I call the chronic Lyme disease syndrome represent a figment of my imagination.” He add this, “I suggest that those who doubt that the Lyme disease syndrome exists and that it can be treated turn to the over two hundred peer reviewed references included in summary articles written by two giants in the Lyme disease field: Dr. B.A. Fallon and Dr. Steven Phillips.”

Published in February, 2008, this is one of the first comprehensive Lyme disease books written by a reputable Lyme Literate Medical Doctor (LLMD)—Kenneth Singleton, M.D.

With 523 pages, the book offers information on numerous Lyme-related topics, including prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and political controversy. See the Table of Contents for more information. 

Dr. Singleton, who holds both a medical degree and a Master’s degree in Public Health, began practicing medicine in 1971, after spending 7 years as Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine at Wright State University. In 1997, Dr. Singleton began a private practice in suburban Baltimore where he still practices today. Before writing The Lyme Disease Solution, he co-authored a book entitled Natural Health for African Americans in 1999. He has lectured extensively and is a frequent guest on radio and TV on topics related to health, particularly Lyme disease. 

Dr. Singleton is an active member of ILADS (International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society), ACAM (American College for Advancement in Medicine), and A4M (American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine). According to his website, The Lyme Disease Solution was written to provide practical guidance for patients and practitioners in dealing with Lyme disease. In his own words:

“What I have accomplished with this 500+ page book, The Lyme Disease Solution, is to share my everyday knowledge and practical experience of 10 years as a Lyme-enlightened practitioner (who also is himself a Lyme-survivor). Although I hesitate to use the “cure” word in relation to chronic Lyme, the principles in this book have resulted in a greater than 90% response rate in my patients. At least 60% of my patients achieve long-term improvement that allows them to get off of antibiotics completely.”

And what are we doing to mark Lyme disease awareness month, you may ask? Well we are launching a book! We are now accepting orders for our new book, Ending Denial – The Lyme Disease Epidemic: A Canadian Public Health Disaster (front cover pictured at left; click for larger image).

Canadians are routinely told by their doctors that Lyme does not exist in Canada and that there is no such thing as its chronic form – its most devastating form, also known as “the great imitator”. The few Canadian doctors actively involved in diagnosing and treating Lyme are frequently persecuted by their licensing authorities when treating Chronic Lyme cases according to international standards; the Canadian Blood Services do not even screen for Lyme (as most other countries do, including the US), and Canada’s Medicare system endorses only tests for Lyme known to produce false negatives — Canada’s doctors are not permitted to use tests that are internationally known to be reliable. This book examines the reasons for this corruption of medicine and erosion of public health standards in Canada.

“If you or someone you love may be suffering from Lyme disease, this book is for you. If you want to know what’s wrong with our health care system, this book is for you. If you have wondered why every conversation about our health care system in Canada and the US ends up being about money, this book is for you. Read it and bear witness to the courage of those who challenge the status quo and truly put patients first. Read it to help protect yourself from the vested interests that have kept doctors and patients in the dark about the true nature of Lyme disease. Read it to understand how blindly doing what the doctor says may be the most dangerous thing you could do for your own health.”
