Updated version of Healing Lyme – when is it coming out?

by | Dec 27, 2012 | CORE PROTOCOL, Herbs

Dear Stephen,
I want to order your revised book on lyme. When will it be available for purchase?

Stephen’s response:
My writing work has taken unexpected turns. My publisher asked me to update the Herbal Antibiotics book, which came out last summer, and was a major undertaking. Then I began to update the lyme book, starting with coinfections, but that turned into a major project which is now a book on mycoplasma and bartonella coming out May 2013 from Inner Traditions. Then the publisher of Herbal Antibiotics wanted an herbal antiviral book, which turned out to be a massive undertaking, and is coming out in August of 2013, and now I am still having to do my originally planned project Gaia’s Mind for which I already signed a contract. The next book after will be on babesia, anaplasma and ehrlichia, and then and only then will I have time to do the lyme book revisions, so we are looking at spring 2015 for a release date since I will be on the road teaching much of 2013 and will only be able to write in 2014.

  • Stephen Harrod Buhner is an Earth poet and the award-winning author of twenty-three books on nature, indigenous cultures, the environment, and herbal medicine including the acclaimed book Healing Lyme: Natural Healing & Prevention of Lyme Borreliosis & Its Co-infections.

    Stephen comes from a long line of healers including Leroy Burney, Surgeon General of the United States under Eisenhower and Kennedy, and Elizabeth Lusterheide, a midwife and herbalist who worked in rural Indiana in the early nineteenth century. The greatest influence on his work, however, has been his great-grandfather C.G. Harrod who primarily used botanical medicines, also in rural Indiana, when he began his work as a physician in 1911.

    Stephen’s work has appeared or been profiled in publications throughout North America and Europe including Common Boundary, Apotheosis, Shaman’s Drum, The New York Times, CNN, and Good Morning America. Stephen lectures yearly throughout the United States on herbal medicine, the sacredness of plants, the intelligence of Nature, and the states of mind necessary for successful habitation of Earth.

    He is a tireless advocate for the reincorporation of the exploratory artist, independent scholar, amateur naturalist, and citizen scientist in American society – especially as a counterweight to the influence of corporate science and technology.

This protocol was incredible. After only a few weeks most of my symptoms were gone. After six months all my symptoms were gone… it has given me my life back.
