NEWARK, N.J., April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- "I don't know why you are here...I can't help you." As Lyme Disease reaches epidemic proportions in New Jersey, more and more sufferers are hearing these disconcerting words from their doctors. Indeed, many doctors do not believe there is such a thing as chronic Lyme...until they get it. On the encouraging side, a burgeoning group of doctors and researchers in the region is taking a fresh look at an old foe, and coming up with some intriguing answers.

Their work is highlighted in "Man vs. Lyme" by Terry Schaefer in the new issue of RADIUS Magazine (  

"Tick-borne illnesses can manifest differently in each patient and can cause a sobering range of symptoms," Schaefer points out in her story. "Some people are not so sick and get well quickly. Others are terribly ill. Treatment has to be tailored to each patient, considering variables like age, symptoms, and medical history."

Tailoring treatment is at the heart of "Man vs. Lyme", which examines some of the unique obstacles that Lyme presents and explores the work of Dr. Daniel Cameron, Dr. Andrea Gaito, Dr. Richard Horowitz and Dr. Ann Corson, as well as Dr. Kristine Gedroic of the Gedroic Center for Integrative Medicine in Morristown, NJ. 

"Man vs. Lyme" is one of many features in the current edition of RADIUS. Others include a Q&A with NJPAC CEO John Schreiber, reviews of Mompou Tapas Wine Bar and 10 other Newark eateries, a trio of stories covering the city's long association with aviation, baseball and jazz, and a 10-page photo essay on Brick City architectural interiors.

RADIUS is a glossy, perfect-bound 92-page magazine that celebrates the past, present and future of Newark—with distribution to 50,000 homes in the surrounding suburbs (including Short Hills, Livingston, Summit, Morristown and Montclair), as well as several thousand copies in the city itself.
