Living Beyond Lyme helps patients side-step the often frustrating controversy surrounding Lyme disease. This book instead focuses on living meaningfully, using mindfulness and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) approaches. Whether it is acute or chronic, Lyme disease causes suffering, and ACT, an evidence-based, scientifically driven approach, can help people change their experience of their illness.

REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

Living Beyond Lyme is an excellent addition to the Lyme disease library of those who have tick-borne illness in their families, as well as the doctors and mental health practitioners from whom these patients seek help. Dr. Trunzo’s extensive knowledge of Lyme disease and ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy) provided the foundation upon which he developed a new and effective model for working with those who are suffering. I applaud him for the fine job he has done explaining this complex illness, and how ACT can help those who are attempting to cope with the functional issues that produce a second source of trauma for these patients. ~ Sandy Berenbaum, LCSW Co-author: When Your Child Has Lyme Disease: A Parent’s Survival Guide

Living Beyond Lyme is a much-needed and extremely welcome book addressing a specific approach to helping those with chronic Lyme disease manage the psychological and interpersonal effects of this life-altering illness. Falling ill with chronic Lyme disease is very often a true medical nightmare. It is more typical than not for sufferers to be ping-ponged between a myriad of medical specialists before ever being given a proper diagnosis. Once diagnosed, which can take place years and even decades after the first symptoms appear, chronic Lyme sufferers are then plunged down the rabbit hole of medical treatment which is definitely not for the faint of heart. All this to say that being struck by this multi-system, neurological, immunosuppressive illness often causes sufferers no end of psychological and emotional struggles and requires a complete paradigm shift about many things including: being repeatedly being let down by the medical system; the ways in which friends and family may or may not ‘show up’ as needed; as well as the sufferer having no option but to dig deep to find their own wellspring of strength and resilience which is an absolute requirement for them to go the distance in their healing journey. In order to cope with this chronic illness, Lyme sufferers require a psychological framework that will help them address the myriad of symptoms that they must endure from moment to moment, hour to hour, day to day, as well as the loneliness, fear and isolation that Lyme disease often creates. In Living Beyond Lyme, author Joseph Trunzo, PhD, has provided us with a very important psychological framework which teaches mindfulness skills and a values-based understanding in order to help sufferers create a more integrated, accepting and supportive approach to co-existing and living more amicably with the daily pain and challenges of chronic Lyme disease. ~ Lori Dennis, M.A., Registered Psychotherapist, and author of Lyme Madness: Rescuing My Son Down The Rabbit Hole of Chronic Lyme Disease
