OF BABESIA by James Schaller, M.D.

Lyme's Cruel Cousin:  The Other Tick-Borne Infection

Do you or a loved one experience excess fatigue? Have you ever had unusually high fevers, chills or sweats? You may have Babesia, a very common tick-borne infection. Babesia is often found with Lyme Disease, and, like all tick-borne infections, is rarely diagnosed and reported accurately. 

The deer tick which carries Lyme Disease and Babesia may be as small as a poppy seed and injects a painkiller, an antihistamine and an anticoagulant to avoid detection. As a result, many people have Babesia and do not know it. Numerous forms of Babesia are carried by deer ticks - this book introduces patients and health care workers to the various species that infect humans and are not routinely tested for by sincere physicians.

Dr. Schaller first became interested in Babesia after one of his children was infected with it, and none of the elite pediatricians or child specialists could help. No one tested for Babesia or considered it a possible diagnosis. His child had just two of these Babesia symptoms which would come and go:

  • Significant Fatigue
  • Coughing
  • Dizziness
  • Trouble Thinking
  • Fevers
  • Chills
  • Air Hunger
  • Headache
  • Sweats

Dr. Schaller gained expertise in diagnosing and treating Babesia through personal experience in his family, extensive research and study, and eventually, a long track record of clinical experience. This book is the most current and comprehensive book on Babesia in the English language. It is not a mere reference book - it introduces many new, cutting edge facts and concepts that are unfamiliar to internists, family doctors, pediatricians, infectious disease physicians and emergency physicians. 

The book reviews thousands of articles and presents the results of interviews with world experts on the subject.  It offers you top information and broad treatment options, presented in a clear and simple manner. You will discover advanced treatment options from both traditional and alternative medicine. All treatments are explained thoroughly including their possible side effects, drug interactions, various dosing strategies, pros/cons, and physician experiences.

Finally, the book also addresses many other aspects of practical medical care often overlooked in this infection such as treatment options for fatigue. 

Plainly stated, this book is a must-have for patients and practitioners who deal with Lyme Disease and its co-infections. To get an idea of just how comprehensive the book is, browse the Table of Contents.


"When I called the State Department of Health in Connecticut in the fall of 2006 concerning some health issues that looked like they may have been tick related, I was told that babesia and ehrlichiosis have been emerging in Midddlesex County in Connecticut and that my son and I should check ourselves for this. Babesia is not a common test that doctors think of giving and doctors are not used to seeing what babesia looks like. Dr. Schaller's book on Babesia sheds much light on babesia symptoms, testing, and treatment. Anyone who has had Lyme and still is having problems should consider reading this book, as co-infections can be missed when Lyme is diagnosed. His book is easy to read. It is an impressive work and will give the patient good information to share with his/her doctor. Dr. Schaller uses common sense in his research and it is refreshing!"

About the Author

James Schaller, M.D.

Dr. James Schaller is a prolific author, with books published or in preparation on Pediatric Lyme Disease, Babesia, Bartonella, Artemisinin, and Lyme combined with Indoor Mold exposure.  Dr. Schaller consults with patients and physicians all over the country and outside the United States. He is concerned that many people are unable to obtain access to clinical researchers with an interest in diverse types of medicine.

He is often surprised at the limited time you can get from sincere doctors. HMO/PPO pressure, cutbacks, and practice overhead have decreased many doctors' budgets for new learning. Many sincere physicians are too worn out for problem solving creativity. Dr. Schaller does not claim to be "smarter" or "more sincere" than any of your doctors. Nevertheless, he is very creative, likes tough questions and also educating patients. He also researches and treats with very diverse options. He is not hassled by an HMO/PPO or a large university administration telling him to see 5 patients per hour.

Dr. Schaller is the author of 15 books covering many diverse areas of medicine. He is the author of five web sites, and offers hundreds of articles on over 25 topics. He is currently preparing books on other common tick-borne infections, including one on Pediatric Lyme Disease and Bartonella.
