Unlocking Lyme by Dr. William Rawls

Unlocking Lyme By Dr. William Rawls

Best audience for Unlocking Lyme: Herbalists and medical professionals who treat chronic illness and people who suffer from or have loved ones who suffer from chronic illness including Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Candace said: Wow! Unlocking Lyme by Dr. William Rawls bridged the gap between the simplified and often inaccurate information out there on how microbial disease (particularly the stealthy ones that we believe cause Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and others) works and the uber-sciencey stuff that’s hard to comprehend for most of us.

Dr. Bill clearly wanted to create a book that speaks to the audience most concerned with healing from these chronic diseases, both patients and practitioners. That he has done and done quiet well. His suggestions for diagnosis, treatment, and communicating with your medical team are well-grounded and insightful. His approach to Holistic management and natural treatment options is clear and practical. He covers the bases between our current medical system and the many natural options available to folks who suffer from chronic disease aptly.

Whether you’re working through the diagnosis phase or already clear about the health challenge you’re facing, Unlocking Lyme offers a lot of insight, terminology, advice on communicating with your team, and hope for recovery.

Sue said: This book was a wonderful surprise to me. It was informative, well researched and easy to read. I found myself going back through chapters I had read previously as the pieces began to fit in place in my mind. Lyme disease has long been a mystery for me. The information available on the internet is conflicting. It is helpful to have a writer well versed in the subject with a medical background to walk the reader through the facts.

Dr. Bill Rawls has an organized, focused and gentle manner that permeates each chapter. This is an arrogance free zone. Each concept is explained and tied to other parts of the book. Normally, I pick my way through books like these. This book was different. I limited myself to reading a chapter a night, giving myself time to ruminate on what I had learned.

My hope in reading the book that this is the beginning of a trend of socially conscience medical doctors expanding into the herbal field. Hearing their voices alongside traditional herbal healers benefits not only the Lyme disease patients themselves but healthcare in general.


The bottom line: We give Unlocking Lyme: Myths, Truths, and Practical Solutions for Chronic Lyme Disease by Dr. William Rawls two thumbs up.
