Published in November, 2013, this new and exciting book by ILADS member Dr. Richard Horowitz features a hardcover format, and is arguably the most important Lyme disease book ever published. According to Dr. Horowitz, 

"The book is a very comprehensive overview of Lyme and tick-borne disorders with a map which can be applied to all chronic diseases. Nothing has ever been done in this scope and breadth. It should really help patients and doctors to have a deeper understanding of the disease and how to get patients better. It is the first work of its kind, empowering patients with complete scientific referencing which can be used to educate their physicians and get the treatment they need."

Now, from one of the foremost doctors, comes a ground-breaking book about diagnosing, treating and healing Lyme, and peeling away the layers that lead to chronic illness.

You may not know that you have Lyme. It can mimic every disease process including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis), Fibromyalgia, Autoimmune conditions including sero-negative rheumatoid arthritis and MS, Psychiatric conditions including depression and anxiety, and cause significant memory and concentration problems mimicking early dementia. It is called the "Great Imitator" and inaccurate testing – combined with an ongoing scientific and political debate that questions chronic infection – makes it difficult for sufferers to find appropriate care.

Enter Dr. Richard Horowitz and his innovative focus on infection, immune system dysfunction and inflammation as all playing a critical role in Lyme and other chronic diseases. When Dr. Horowitz, an internist, moved to the Hudson Valley over two decades ago to start his own medical practice, he had no idea that he was about to jump into a hotbed of Lyme disease. He would soon realize that many of the chronic disease diagnoses people were receiving were also the result of Lyme – and he would discover the commonalities of chronic disease and Lyme in general, how once-treatable infections, in the absence of identification and timely intervention, could cause disabling conditions.

In a field where the number of cases is growing each year around the world and answers remain elusive, Dr. Horowitz has now treated over 12,000 patients, and made extraordinary progress. His plan represents a paradigm shift, without which, he argues, the suffering will continue.

In this book, Dr. Horowitz: 
  • Breaks new ground with a 16 Point Differential Diagnostic Map, the basis for his revolutionary Lyme treatment plan, and an overarching approach to treating all chronic illness.

  • Introduces MSIDS, or Multiple Systemic Infectious Disease Syndrome, a new lens on chronic illness that may prove to be an important missing link.

  • Covers in detail Lyme's leading symptoms and co-infections, and provides a unique functional and integrative health care model based on the most up-to-date scientific research, for physicians and health care providers to effectively treat Lyme and other chronic illnesses, including: Other bacterial, viral, parasitic and fungal infections, immune dysfunction, inflammation with chronic pain, sleep disorders, mitochondrial dysfunction, hormonal disorders, GI disorders with food allergies, neuro-psychiatric manifestations, autonomic nervous system dysfunction, functional medicine abnormalities with heavy metals and nutritional deficiencies. 

  • Provides an all-in-one source for patients of Lyme and other chronic illnesses to identify the multiple causes of their symptoms and work with their doctors for the best possible treatment outcome.

  • Dr. Horowitz’s enlightening story of medical discovery, science, politics and patient experience is sure to strike a powerful chord with medical and scientific communities, families, and policymakers. Providing a path through the frustration, misinformation and endless questions, WHY CAN’T I GET BETTER will be the most comprehensive tool available to patients and doctors today.




“Dr. Richard Horowitz brought [my family] back from the brink of Lyme disease hell to true health. In WHY CAN’T I GET BETTER, Horowitz discusses...chronic disease and the cascade of problems that may start with infection but ultimately go far beyond it... His provocative insights apply to chronic illness writ large.” – Pamela Weintraub, award-winning author of Cure Unknown

"Dr. Horowitz has been, and continues to be, ‘in the trenches’ in the battle to understand, diagnose and treat people who, like myself, have suffered or are suffering the effects of Lyme... I can think of no one more qualified to write about this subject.” – Daryl Hall, musician (Hall & Oates)
