This book outlines a treatment plan for Lyme Disease based on research and personal experience.

The information in this book is based on his journey overcoming Lyme disease and the experiences of other Lyme sufferers. Additionally Rosner has evaluated scientific studies and collaborated with physicians who specialize in Lyme disease treatment around the world.

Lyme Disease Diet Basics

Freedom from Lyme Disease informs readers about cutting-edge strategies with the potential to shorten the duration of recovery from Lyme disease.

This book describes a variety of available treatments and explains how to integrate them to create a customized plan.

An Individualized Unique Lyme Disease Treatment Plan

Rosner says that trying to find the “best” way to treat Lyme disease can be counterproductive. Lyme disease is an extremely complex illness with many complicating factors and each individual is unique.

So instead he recommends a flexible way of managing Lyme disease that he refers to as the “treatment template“.

This approach provides sufferers with a way to evaluate different modalities to decide whether each one is appropriate for them.
Some of the subjects related to healing Lyme disease that are addressed include:

The Paleo Diet for Lyme Disease

When a Paleo diet is used for weight loss the amount of carbohydrates are severely restricted. Rosner’s version of the Paleo diet for Lyme disease allows for a higher level of carbohydrates.

Dieters are encouraged to be flexible with their eating plan. The goal isn’t to follow the diet in a rigid fashion but to implement it in a way that works for your individual chemistry.

The Lyme Disease diet he recommends centers heavily on fresh vegetables. However, the majority of calories are derived from animal products and healthy fats.
