Horowitz weighs in

Dr. Richard Horowitz has been treating Lyme and other tick-borne infections for 28 years. When he moved from Bayside, New York, to the Hudson Valley, he never suspected he’d land right in the heart of tick territory. After working in internal medicine, Dr. Horowitz opened a practice in Hyde Park, New York, where he is the medical director of the Hudson Valley Healing Arts Center. His book, Why Can’t I Get Better? Solving the Mystery of Lyme and Chronic Disease, was published in 2013. Lyme Connection editor Janet Jemmott spoke with him about his view on Lyme and persistent illness. (taken from

I like this guy. I have yet to read the book, but as soon as I can buy the book, I will read it. I agree with so much of what he says and it just makes sense. I don’t know if my LLMD would agree with his approach 100%, but he brings up good points. Chronic lyme is such a multi-systemic problem, affecting so many of your vital organs and parts of the body. If not treated properly and in time, it can devastate one’s body. I’m grateful to read that he does have hope that people who have had this long-term have a good chance at a healthy life, but at the same time, reading through just how many levels a doctor would have to work through, is rather daunting.

Still, I’d like to share this article. Please visit the web site to read this Richard Horowitz article, an interview with a doctor who is said to be one of the best experts on chronic lyme – or MSIDS – Multiple Systemic Infectious Disease Syndrome – as it can sometimes be called.

I’m working on my post about my first LLMD appointment which was July 18th. I realize I’m over a week late, but there’s a lot to process and share and there’s also the protocol to be on – which is very hard in itself. Thank you for patience.

Lymie out…
