Armed with the self-created motto “When life kicks your ass, kick back,” a fiery young woman with a debilitating and misdiagnosed disease travels to a tiny clinic in India for a controversial embryonic stem cell treatment. Get lost in a magical country of vibrant colors and mouth-watering curry, where sacred cows line the rambunctious streets and the symphony of honking horns never sleeps.
Entertaining, funny and inspirational, this is a no holds-barred story that will inspire you to follow your heart and maybe even see your life in a whole new way. On the journey to save her miserably failing body, Amy finds a world of cultural mayhem, radical medical treatment, and most importantly, a piece of her life that she never even knew she was searching for.
While Amy’s story is an honest but humorous look at her adventures with Lyme disease and other chronic health failures, this book is so much more than a story of disease and treatment. It is about the spiritual journey of healing and the pilgrimage of life. 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.

I bought this book hoping to gain some insight into dealing more successfully with chronic Lyme disease. I was not disappointed. I was inspired by Amy Scher's determination to do whatever it took to get well. It took her a while to embrace her Indian doctor's belief that she had the power to heal herself. When she finally knew this to be true, she was able heal. The author's life seems to have been changed forever by her healing journey. I appreciate all of the insights she shared about how she accomplished this healing of body, mind, emotions, and spirit. She now offers energy therapy for emotional healing. I've worked with her once over the hone and she was quite skillful and helpful.
A Lilac Wolf and Stuff Review The book is brilliant. I'm in awe of this woman who spent so long losing a battle with Lyme Disease. She went to India for stem cell treatment. The stem cells used, are from a single embryo that was donated to the doctor from a couple who had embryos made up for fertility treatment. When they reached success, they wanted to give something back. It's a very easy going book, being that it's mostly made up of blog entries that Amy wrote while undergoing treatment. And reading about her healing is just amazing. Why are we not doing this here??? It's also a wonderful study of the culture shock when a San Francisco gal goes to one of the largest cities in India, Delhi. I'm still in love with India, but I'm less eager to move there. lol Amy doesn't really pull any stops. She's working her butt off to get rid of the Lyme and all the things that go along with it, and she's sharing it all right here with us.
This story kind of reminds me of Eat Pray Love. Just in the fact that with her illness she found herself. It is a journey of healing, love, and life and I would recommend this book to anyone who wants an uplifting true story that will make Inspire you to follow your heart!
