In Lyme Whisperer: The Secret’s Out, Joy lets you in on her conversations or “whispers” with Borrelia, the bacteria that causes Lyme. If you’ve ever wondered how Borrelia could be compared to the White Witch from the Chronicles of Narnia, the transformer Megatron, the serpent monster from Harry Potter, Snow White’s apple, a Disney World roller-coaster ride, The Perfect Storm, a World War Z zombie, or Gone with the Wind, then this book is for you. If you haven’t wondered any of this before, you should be wondering now. This book is for Lyme warriors, Lyme friends, Lyme family, Lyme doctors, Lyme legislators, the Lyme curious, and even Lyme skeptics. It’s for everyone because quite simply, Lyme is the epidemic of our time. Join Joy as she whispers defiantly to Borrelia in her fight against Lyme. A fight filled with humor and hope. She’s not crazy. And she’s not alone.
