I was so moved by the long journey to wholeness of the author, an internal medicine physician whose Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and chronic fatigue took her from a thriving medical practice to housebound with two young children.

Her courageous and unconventional trek to healing is a heroine’s epic that inspires and calls into question the efficacy of conventional medicine alone.

Her answers illuminate all manner of recovery: looking at root causes, using the body and spirit’s innate wisdom and intuition, turning to ancient healing practices combined with cutting edge science and research.

Brave New World is both a beautifully written memoir and a prescription for whole person living. Highly recommended!

Pub Date 01 Sep 2019.

Thanks to Cynthia Li, MD, New Harbinger Publications, Inc., and NetGalley for the review copy. Opinions are mine.

C. This sounds important and good. Thank you, I am glad I saw it. When my Mom is well enough again, she will read this with eagerness and optimism. She is overcoming plain but dangerous pneumonia rather than this authoress's disease. However, we believe in a spiritual resource for everything and she would feel renewed to learn about it.
