"If you love someone, read this book."
These are the stories of seven families who were determined to solve the unsolvable. Their adventures take us to the outer frontiers of medical science including research into the mind’s potential to heal the body, the possible role food may play in reversing disease, and the power of agency, perseverance, hope—and more.
One boy who has severe food allergies undergoes an unconventional therapy and is soon eating everything. A physician with MS creates her own combination of treatments and goes from a wheelchair to riding a bike again. A child diagnosed with ADHD refuses to take medication and instead improves his life, and the life of his family, after changing his diet. Other families take on rheumatoid arthritis, intractable epilepsy, and autistic behaviors.
