Dear Lyme patients, health care providers and friends,

I have completed a four year journey writing my book "Why Can't I Get Better? Solving the Mystery of Lyme and Chronic Disease” which was released on November 12th 2013, through St Martin’s press.

This represents my life's work over the last 26 years, diagnosing and treating over 12,000 chronically ill patients with Lyme disease. I have discovered that patients with chronic symptoms after classical treatment for Lyme disease have multi-factorial causes for their illness. I call this syndrome Lyme-MSIDS. MSIDS stands for Multiple Systemic Infectious Disease Syndrome, and represents sixteen potential overlapping medical problems contributing to persistent symptoms in patients with chronic illness.

If you or a loved one is still suffering from unexplained symptoms of Lyme disease, or have been diagnosed with a chronic illness where your health care providers have not been able to provide answers for your symptoms, this book may help you to uncover the hidden causes of your illness. I wrote this book for you and your doctors, so that you could be empowered to finally find answers for your chronic persistent symptoms. Not only does this apply to individuals who have been diagnosed with Lyme and associated tick-borne disorders, but also applies to those who have been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Auto-immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and MS, or even psychological disorders where there is a multisystemic component. Lyme is the great imitator, and is the number one vector borne epidemic spreading throughout the world, mimicking many other diseases. This book should help you and your health care provider navigate the maze of chronic illness, and put you back on the road to health.

Wishing you all the best on your healing journey,

Dr. Richard Horowitz
