There are enough books and websites about what Lyme Disease is and which ticks carry it. But there is very little useful information for people who actually have a case of Lyme Disease that is not responding to conventional antibiotic treatment. Lyme Disease sufferers need to know how to get better, not how to identify a tick. This book is about how experimental frequency devices known as "rife machines" have been used for over 15 years in private homes to successfully fight Lyme Disease. Many Lyme Disease sufferers have heard of rife machines, some have used them. But until now there has not been a concise and reliable source to explain how and why they work, and how and why other therapies fail. In the book you will learn that rife machine therapy offers numerous advantages over antibiotic therapy, including sustained effectiveness, affordability, convenience, autonomy from the medical establishment, and avoidance of candida complications. The Foreword for the book is by Richard Loyd, Ph.D., one of the nation s leading rife machine researchers and coordinator of the annual Rife International Health Conference. Rife machine expert Marc Fett and Coil Machine inventor Doug MacLean contribute their knowledge and experience in the book, as do several other prominent rife machine experts and Lyme Disease researchers. Throughout the book you will find stories of Lyme Disease sufferers who have used rife machines. You ll learn how they did it, what they would have done differently, and their experiences with other therapies. This book is user-friendly for people who have no prior knowledge of rife machines, but advanced enough to encompass documented scientific research and Lyme Disease pathology. The book contains critical rife machine information organized into a straight-forward and concise format. A detailed index and table of contents allow navigation to the topics you are interested in. The book takes a practical, down-to-earth approach which allows you to learn abo
In “Seeking to Win," Author Stuart E. Smith welds together stories from his past with quotes from famous people to build a book of inspiration for all ages. If you or someone you know needs some encouragement, you will find it within these 112 pages. In the Preface, we learn of the moment that Stuart gave a half-time talk to his Son s football team who were playing in a very difficult playoff game. This is where the phrase Seek for this Win was coined and thus, led to this book. He reminds us all that, "Winning takes effort, and is often a result of previous failures that have been turned into motivation." We are told of Stuart s grandfather who served as an Army Ranger in WWII. Somewhere within these pages, we are also reminded when possible, not to learn life lessons, “the hard way." As you journey through the pages of “Seeking to Win," you will discover Fear is Normal and taught lessons on how love and forgiveness factor into a winning life. Instructions such as, ‘Let that grudge go,’ and in Chapter 8, we read the following: "The life of a Champion is all about love. It isn t always based on a particular conquest or any one victory in an event or battle. The true Champion lives his or her life not just for themselves, but also for the benefit of others." Stuart brings to this book lessons from a lifetime of Ministry, Coach of Youth Sports, International Teacher, Free Lance Writer, and World Traveler to deliver a timely faith-based message of hope. As a Dad and Husband, he guides the reader to the realities of the struggle and the inspiration of the ultimate win. As a bonus, the reader gets to look at pages and pages of pictures to let you in on the Author s very unusual life. You will find in the Introduction of the Author that he counts 26 youth as his children. These are from 11 different countries, no less.
