Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Healing Lyme Disease Naturally, anthropologist Wolf D. Storl shares his own success in overcoming a difficult, sometimes deadly disease that is reaching epidemic proportions. When he was diagnosed, Dr. Storl refused standard treatments because of antibiotic intolerance. Instead, he researched healing systems of various cultures including Traditional Chinese Medicine, American Indian healing practices, homeopathy, and traditional Western herbal lore and discovered the teasel root. Teasel, a flowering plant that grows throughout Europe and Asia, tonifies the liver and kidneys, promotes blood circulation, and strengthens the bones and tendons. The plant has been documented to help cure chronic conditions marked by arthritis, sore, stiff muscles, and eventual incapacitation—all symptoms associated with Lyme disease. Dr. Storls approach consists of flushing out toxins and inhibiting bacteria by using teasel root as tincture, powder, or tea (available for purchase online and in natural foods stores); stimulating the immune system and detoxifying the body by exposing it to extreme heat (sweat lodges and Japanese baths); and dietary and naturopathic measures, including fresh natural food, exercise, and sufficient sleep. Written in an encouraging, personal tone but based in science and clinical studies, Healing Lyme Disease Naturally offers hope in combating a condition that has stubbornly resisted conventional medical treatment.

About the Author

Wolf D. Storl received his BA in anthropology from Ohio State University, his MA in sociology from Kent State University, and his PhD in Ethnology/Anthropology from the University of Berne, Switzerland. He has been a guest professor at the University of Berne, lecturing on cultural ecology, a Visiting Scholar at the Benares Hindu University, India, Department of Sociology, and has taught courses such as medical anthropology at Sheridan College in Wyoming. Dr. Storl, who has spent time pursuing anthropological interests in India, Bangladesh, Burma, Thailand, China, and Japan, has published twenty-eight books in German (as well as three in English: Culture and Horticulture: A Philosophy of Gardening, Witchcraft Medicine, and Shiva: The Wild God of Power and Ecstasy) covering such topics as traditional folk medicine, medicinal paradigms of native people, herb lore, and ethnobotany. His books and articles have been translated into various languages (Czech, Polish, Lithuanian, Dutch, Danish, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, French, and Japanese). Currently a freelance writer and lecturer, Dr. Storl has appeared on numerous radio and television broadcasts in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Great Britain (BBC). He lives in Rohrdorf, Germany.
