Neuro issues -- A few books to consider

I have seen recent references to these books on one of the doctor-based listservs. I thought I should pass them on. I'm currently reading the first one. - Bob

1) One is Dr. Horowitz's new Lyme (and other chronic diseases) book, which for those of us struggling with this illness for a while.

Why Can't I Get Better?  By Richard Horowitz, MD

 2) The second book may be useful for anyone who has any kind of brain problems. It's not about Lyme, it is about how the brain functions and lots of things that can go wrong with it. He says in conventional Western medicine the docs wait until there is a diagnosable "brain disease" and then slap a label on you when it is already pretty much too late. He claims that in reality there are lots of signs of a brain that is not working optimally and there is much that can be early on, before irreparable damage is done.  

Why My Brain Isn't Working, by Dr. Datis Kharrazian.

3)  "...blows the lid off a topic that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more"

by David Perlmutter, MD
