Does Lyme disease really exist in Australia? Could this possibly be the missing link in thousands who are suffering with debilitating chronic health problems, where no other cause can be found? Are Australian doctors unaware of recent studies that show that Lyme disease does in fact exist in Australia, and that their sickest patients may have this disease? These are the questions that Naturopathic Physician Nicola McFadzean, ND, will answer for you in this groundbreaking and life-saving book. A native Australian who was trained in medicine in the United States, Dr. Nicola has treated more than 1000 Lyme disease patients on both continents, over 400 in Australia alone. This long-awaited book not only takes you on a journey of discovery through the history, politics, and science of Lyme disease in Australia, it also provides practical guidelines for diagnosing and treating the disease from both a holistic/naturopathic perspective, and an allopathic/pharmaceutical perspective. Find out the truth about Lyme disease in Australia - your life or the life of your loved one may depend on it. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Dr. McFadzean is a Lyme-literate Naturopathic Doctor, trained in both the United States and her native country of Australia.

Abstract: Background: Many Australian patients are diagnosed and treated for the scientifically and politically controversial diagnosis of an endemic form of 'Australian Lyme Disease'. Patient advocacy led Senator John Madigan to propose an Australian Senate Inquiry into this illness. Aim: To describe the symptomology and outcomes of patients diagnosed and treated with Lyme disease in Australia. Methods: All public, first‐person submissions ( n = 698) to the inquiry were reviewed and responses analysed for epidemiology, symptoms and impact against structured criteria. Results: The most common symptoms described were fatigue (62.6%), disordered thinking (51.9%) and sensory disturbance (46.1%). Respondents reported experiencing symptoms for a median of 10 years and spent a median of $30 000 on diagnosis and treatment. Almost 10% of respondents self‐diagnosed after being exposed to a media report of Australian Lyme disease. Conclusions: Patients diagnosed with Lyme disease in Australia display a symptomology similar to 'medically unexplained physical symptoms' syndromes, experience social and financial harms, and are at risk of nosocomial harms. Negative medical interactions and the media may contribute to patients seeking alternative and potentially non‐evidence‐based diagnoses and treatments.

Lyme disease is spreading rapidly around the globe as ticks move into places they could not survive before. Mary Beth Pfeiffer argues it is the first epidemic to emerge in the era of climate change, infecting millions around the globe. She tells the heart-rending stories of its victims, families whose lives have been destroyed by a single, often unseen, tick bite. Pfeiffer also warns of the emergence of other tick-borne illnesses that make Lyme more difficult to treat and pose their own grave risks. Lyme is an impeccably researched account of an enigmatic disease, making a powerful case for action to fight ticks, heal patients, and recognize humanity's role in a modern scourge.
