"From what I have read to date, the authors have done an outstanding job with combining traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine together."

From her own experiences, Dr. Virginia Sherr, M.D. wrote: 
"Tell your colleagues that Chinese medicine might be one way to help enhance the clinical outcomes of Lyme treatment."

"This is a comprehensive book on the cause and treatment of Lyme disease using modern Chinese medicine, which I have found to be a better option than Western medicine for this difficult infection. Lyme disease is becoming more frequent in many parts of the world, is frequently misdiagnosed, and often resists treatment with antibiotics alone. Here is a new and hopeful way of looking at the disease and its management."
Dr. Andrew Weil, Harvard Medical School graduate and a leading figure in the field of alternative medicines

The prevalence of Lyme disease has reached epidemic proportions in regions across the United States, particularly in the Northeast, Middle West, and Northwest, where it is now the fastest-growing infectious disease. Reported cases have doubled over the last decade, surpassing even HIV in scale, with Lyme disease possibly ranking as the second-largest infectious disease in the country, following hepatitis C. Its global spread is also evident, with rapid increases reported in Canada, Europe, and Asia.

Controversy surrounds Lyme disease, particularly concerning its diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis, especially regarding its chronic and persistent forms. This controversy often leaves chronically infected patients without adequate medical care. Conventional Western antibiotic treatments have shown limited effectiveness against Lyme disease, particularly in chronic cases, as the Lyme spirochete and its multiple co-infections exhibit resistance and adaptation to antibiotics over time.

The Western medical approach typically focuses solely on eradicating the pathogen, neglecting the complexities of Lyme pathogenesis and its associated complications in chronic infections. Modern Chinese medicine (MCM) offers an integrative approach, combining traditional Chinese medicine with Western medicine principles. Through over a decade of practical clinical experience, it has been observed that MCM's use of modern Chinese herbal treatment, supplemented with acupuncture, yields superior clinical outcomes compared to conventional antibiotic therapy alone, particularly in addressing Lyme disease's auto-immunity and immune complex-related complications.

Modern Chinese herbology integrates traditional Chinese herbal remedies with contemporary pharmacological understanding. This approach aims to match the phytopharmacology of herbal remedies with the pathophysiology of Lyme disease, offering a comprehensive and effective treatment strategy. This book delves into the intricacies of traditional and Modern Chinese Medicine, aiming to provide detailed answers to questions regarding the efficacy of MCM in treating Lyme disease and the shortcomings of conventional Western approaches.
