In addition to evidence-based research, many physicians who are new to the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme and its associated illnesses have found the following books helpful in gaining an experience-based perspective from LLMDs who have encountered thousands of patients, and assessing the overall debate about the disease.

The first four books on the following list are written by healthcare professionals, and offer a front line view of the diagnostic and treatment approaches that they employ in the battle against Lyme and its co-infections.

The final book on this list presents a more bird’s eye view of the rocky terrain that Lyme inhabits in the medical community – capturing the debate over the very nature of the disease, that has been detrimental to research and devastating to sufferers and their families, through the eyes of a science writer with unfortunate first-hand knowledge of the effects of the illness.

Taken together, these books constitute a basic foundation that physicians who are new to Lyme can build upon to put their evidence-based research in a larger, practical context.
