About the Book

Gain control over Lyme disease and your life with this holistic, integrative approach created by renowned naturopath Julia Greenspan in Rising Above Lyme Disease.

Book Synopsis

Rising Above Lyme Disease is a comprehensive, whole-body approach to overcoming Lyme disease and reclaiming your life.

Incidence of Lyme disease is skyrocketing. If caught early, antibiotics can often successfully treat it, but more often than not, Lyme is asymptomatic and evades diagnosis until it is a full-blown, chronic condition that requires a multi-faceted treatment plan.

In Rising Above Lyme Disease, renowned naturopath and Lyme-literate doctor Julia Greenspan presents a Comprehensive and Alternative Medicine (CAM) approach for recovery for those who have been suffering with this disease for weeks, months, years, or even decades. Operating from the front lines of the epidemic in New England, she gives hope to those who thought there was none, or feel unheard by all those around them.

Dr. Greenspan's integrative treatment plan addresses not only the body, but the mind as well, and includes:

  • Standard protocols such as antibiotic and probiotic care, which can be essential to long-term healing (despite fears)
  • Detoxing and dietary changes that help get proven results
  • Therapies such as yoga, massage, earthing, and qi gong
  • Therapies that dig deeper (when nothing else seems to be working) and focus on removing obstacles to healing, such as past trauma, negative beliefs about self, unhealthy lifestyle choices, genetics, hormone imbalance, environmental toxins, and other infections--all of which have a very real, and often overlooked, effect on recovery
Through this comprehensive approach that focuses on the whole person and the very personal ways in which the disease may affect one's life, it is possible to find relief, become your best advocate, and ultimately, rise above Lyme.

Review Quotes

"In Rising Above Lyme Disease, naturopathic Dr. Julia Greenspan provides an easy to understand guide and overview of classical and natural therapies for those with tick-borne illness. This book is a must read for those wanting to understand how to bridge the best of Western, Eastern, and natural approaches."--Richard Horowitz, M.D., New York Times best-selling author of How Can I Get Better? An Action Plan f

"It is not until one is diagnosed with Lyme disease that most discover how truly complicated and misunderstood tick-borne illness really is. This book is not only educational, but also inspiring, as Dr. Greenspan comes from the perspective of both a naturopathic doctor and recovered Lyme patient. She's been through the throes of the illness and has come out on the other side, bringing with her an understanding and drive to help Lyme patients with real passion--and this shines through in Rising Above Lyme Disease. This book helps navigate your way through an incredibly complex illness by educating you on testing, self-advocacy, supportive therapies, and the ever-important education we all need for prevention."
--Laura Piazza, co-author of Recipes for Repair: A 10-Week Program to Combat Chronic Inflammation and

"It takes a special person to outsmart a spirochete and a special doctor to dare enough to do it. From demystifying and untangling a dizzying array of symptoms with keen intuition, proper testing, and comprehensive assessment, to her effective and ever-adaptable naturopathic treatment plan--an intelligent and bold combination of antibiotic medications, probiotics, herbal medicine, detox, cognition support and more--Julia Greenspan is that special person and doctor. I should know because I was her patient. Julia goes above and beyond in this book to address things no one else has--from dealing with the trauma of this devastating illness, to facing denial and cost, to how to present yourself and your challenges to family, co-workers, and schools. This is a most honest and practical guide to getting your life back."
--Joy Devins, Lyme disease survivor and thriver, and author of Lyme Whisperer: The Secret's Out
