"Horowitz is one of the most prominent 'Lyme literate' physicians.patients wait for months to see him, and several told me that he had essentially cured them of a disease that nobody else seemed able to treat." -The New Yorker

"If you have suffered from unexplained, chronic or hard-to-treat illness, this book is your pathway to health." -Mark Hyman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Blood Sugar Solution on Why Can't I Get Better?

From Dr. Richard I. Horowitz, one of the country's foremost doctors, comes a ground-breaking book about diagnosing, treating and healing Lyme, and peeling away the layers that lead to chronic disease.

Are you sick, but can't find any answers why? Do you have a seemingly unconnected collection of symptoms that leave doctors guessing? Or have you been diagnosed, but found that none of the treatments seems to make a difference? You may have Lyme disease and not even know it. Known as "the great imitator," Lyme disease and its associated co-infections can mimic the symptoms of and often be misdiagnosed as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, and even depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and psychosis.

In his landmark book, Why Can't I Get Better?: Solving the Mystery of Lyme & Chronic Disease, renowned internist and leading world expert Dr. Horowitz introduced his revolutionary plan for treating Lyme disease, and chronic diseases in general. Now, in this new handbook How Can I Get Better?, Dr. Horowitz updates his research and offers a direct, actionable step-by-step plan for implementing his 16 MSIDS Diagnostic Map.

You will find:
*The latest pertinent information on the most important scientific discoveries
*Emerging research on bacterial "persisters"-bacteria that can survive antibiotics-and new therapies to get rid of them
*A seven-step action plan that patients and doctors can follow to ensure better health.
