Fox News - The Lyme disease debate: Can the condition be chronic?
May 6, 2015

Commentary: I did an interview about Lyme disease and associated tick-borne infections for Fox News Health Talk. Dr Manny Alvarez and I discussed the signs and symptoms of Lyme and co-infections, problems with testing and persistence, prevention, as well as the politics of Lyme disease. I would like to thank Fox News and Dr Manny for helping to educate the public and raise awareness.

People Magazine - Avril Lavigne Suffers from Lyme Disease: Things to Know about the Illness
April 2, 2015

Commentary: I was interviewed by People magazine about Lyme and associated tick-borne diseases after Canadian singer Avril Lavigne's recent bout with Lyme disease. For those who missed seeing the live interview, the link is below. Congratulations to People for highlighting the importance of Lyme, as a rapidly spreading epidemic. Ticks are containing multiple bacterial, parasitic and viral infections, and education and prevention of tick-borne infections is essential if we are to effectively combat this growing health threat.

Today Show - Kathie Lee & Hoda: Chronic Lyme disease: What you need to know
July 2, 2014

I would like to thank Sherry and all of the members of the Bay Area Lyme Foundation for helping to arrange and coordinate the interview on the Today show. The Bay Area Lyme Foundation has been an important voice in helping patients with chronic Lyme disease not only in California, but across the US. Among their accomplishments, they have helped fund and establish a center at Stamford University for tick-borne disorders that is actively doing important scientific research. I would also like to thank Kathie-Lee, Hoda and the producers at NBC and The Today Show.  I have already received comments from people on Facebook that the interview was helpful in clarifying the symptoms of chronic Lyme disease, and families who were sick and not knowing where to turn, are now seeking help. National reporting of this information is imperative considering the scope of the epidemic, its ability to mimic different diseases, and its devastating effects on the health of our communities. For those who didn't have a chance to see the live interview, here is the link:

Physician embodies the puzzle of Lyme disease
by Beth Daley
December 3, 2013

Some doctors who believe Lyme can evade antibiotics strongly disagree. Dr. Richard Horowitz of New York, who says he treats people for persistent Lyme, said that they may have other tickborne infections and that he has identified as many as 16 overlapping medical problems contributing to persistent illness in a patient.

“Chronic illness has multi-factorial causes,’’ said Horowitz, author of “Why Can’t I Get Better? Solving the Mystery of Lyme and Chronic Disease.” “People need to know that there are answers and they can have hope.”
