Disease-carrying ticks are found in all 50 states in the U.S. and, as their numbers rise and their ranges increase, so, too, do cases of tick-borne illnesses. Alexis Chesney, a naturopathic physician specializing in the treatment of diseases transmitted through tick bites, offers a comprehensive strategy for reducing exposure to disease-causing organisms and boosting the effectiveness of standard treatment protocols. With an overview of the tick species present in the U.S. and profiles of Lyme and other top diagnosed tick-borne diseases, including anaplasmosis and babesiosis, this guide gives concerned readers and medical professionals alike a deeper understanding of how tick populations — and associated illnesses — spread, and how to combat them naturally. In addition to covering landscape-management methods for dramatically reducing tick populations around the home, Chesney outlines prophylactic herbal tinctures that provide an additional layer of protection against tick-borne illnesses — an important strategy for those living in high-risk regions, especially in the event of an undetected bite. Chesney also provides options for treating acute tick-borne diseases, if symptoms develop, as well as herbs that can be used in combination with antibiotics to augment their efficacy.

Alexis Chesney’s Preventing Lyme & Other Tick-Borne Diseases is a comprehensive, informative, and readable resource for those who wish to incorporate naturopathic approaches to prevention and treatment.
Dr. Chesney has created a unique and highly important work. Her focus on prevention goes far beyond just avoiding tick-friendly landscapes and doing tick checks. She helps readers feel knowledgeable and fully empowered to keep themselves and their families safe from an epidemic that impacts the lives of so many thousands of people. Her practical advice on using herbal formulas to address tick bites fills a large gap in existing information, which covers antibiotic-only therapy in Lyme prophylaxis and/or acute Lyme. I will certainly be keeping a copy of this book close and following Dr. Chesney’s directions and guidelines.
