This Is How I Save My Life: A True Story of Embryonic Stem Cells, Indian Adventures, and Ultimate Self-Healing
(January 8, 2013)
When Amy Scher, a die-hard eternal optimist finds her near-perfect 25-year-old body falling apart, she is met with pessimistic diagnoses and failed treatments. Stumbling through her “party years” with Ritz-Carlton-like hospital stays and specialists looking at her in stupefaction, her optimism remains, but the chance for recovery from late stage Lyme disease dwindles.
Admittedly living a life of clichés such as “there are signs everywhere,” “nothing is by chance,” and “this too shall pass,” her life takes a U-turn after one serendipitous meeting in Maui. She falls into a conversation with a woman who has just returned from India after receiving radical medical treatment. Amy’s love affair with “signs” from the Universe is all she needs to propel her research about this treatment–and from there, the adventure begins.
Free spirited and fiercely driven, she takes a leap of faith and travels to Delhi, India for an experimental embryonic stem cell treatment. Unsure if she has been given the equivalent of a never-ending ladder in the game of Chutes and Ladders, or is making a medical mistake that will kill her, she dives in, never losing hold of her humor and hope.
Years after Amy’s return from India, she finds her healing journey is far from over. With as much courage and grace as she can muster, she heads off in a different direction–and discovers a part of herself that she never even knew was missing. Amy’s no holds-barred attitude will inspire you to see the hidden signs in your own life and challenge your deepest beliefs about healing. Why do some people heal from emotional or physical issues, while others don’t? Through extensive research and her own recovery experience, Amy finds the most important piece for her own healing-the impact of unprocessed negative emotions on our physical bodies.
This powerful and uplifting story of sheer determination is for anyone who believes in–or doubts–the existence of miracles and the infinite power of self-healing.
Lessons from Lyme Disease, Chronic Fatigue, and Fibromyalgia: A Collection Of Stories, Insights, and Healing Solutions
(May 14th, 2014)
This book is more than just about disease signs and symptoms. It is a collaborative memoir of hope. Too often, Lyme disease, chronic fatigue, and fibromyalgia patient message boards and forums have only stories of defeat. Hardly does anyone tell a story that offers the most potent healing ingredient of them all: insight from having traveled the path. To really heal and help others do the same, we must go beyond the dis-ease. We must choose to focus on how the experience is simply part of our story. And just like every story, it has its lessons that help us grow and heal.
This book of lessons includes 20+ stories, each written by individual authors, that focus on positive lessons learned from illness. It offers emotional, physical, and spiritual guidance for a chance to heal through the experience of others.
You’ll learn the top approaches that have worked for others just like you, the most important lessons to remember while experiencing illness, and most importantly — that you really CAN heal.
This book is for anyone with a “chronic illness” that has felt lost, scared and lonely. The stories of others will both educate and inspire you — helping you just a little further along on your own path.
