For nearly 10 years, I have been doing scientific research on Lyme disease. In addition, I give lectures in different environments, especially in medical faculties. I write articles in newspapers and newspapers for awareness. Using this experience, I have written a 350-page book on Lyme disease. The book is supported by nearly 1000 scientific references and consists of 12 chapters.
1-What is Lyme disease?, 2-Lyme and co-infections.,3-New great imitator bacteria,Borrelia burgdorferi.,A- 365 diseases with lyme connection (including short description of all diseases.), B- Borrelia and Ticks, 4-Some of common diseases that it imitates, A-MS, B-ALS, C-Autısm, D-Heart disease, E-Dementia, Alzheimer,Parkinson, F-Reumatical diseases, G-Eye diseases, H-Thyroid disease, I-Skin diseases, K-Child diseases, L-Phychiatric diseases, 5-Lyme disease and cancer connection, 6-Congenital Lyme borreliosis, 7-Economic Direction, 8-Lyme treatment centers and treatment protocols, 9-Pets ans Lyme, 10-Famous Lyme patients, 11-Lyme patients-Real stories, 12-Scientific studies in Turkey.
There are few published books on Lyme disease in the world. The main feature of my book is that each chapter is supported by academic references. The main target is written in a language that is understood by the public, although students of medical faculties and young doctors. Another important feature of my book is a list of explanations about 365 illnesses that Lyme mimics for doctors and medical students.
I think this book will be very useful for raising awareness about the epidemic Lyme disease of the 21st century.
I thank you for your kind sensitivity and offer my love and respect.
