Baker & Taylor
At 33, Nancy Davis was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The neurologist's finality was devastating: "There is nothing you can do." Nancy left her doctor's office in shock and despair. How could it be that within a year she would be confined to her bed, at best able to push the buttons on her remote control? She had plans, a family, a life that she desperately wanted to live. Nancy made a choice: rather than accepting this hopeless prognosis, she began to educate herself, to create an effective health regimen, and to expand her range of therapeutic options. She literally reinvented her prognosis, and in doing so, created a healthy new life. Life-altering diseases often come with a list of "can'ts" and "won'ts." Nancy teaches readers how to move beyond these negative concepts and focus on what they personally can and will do to improve their health.--From publisher description.
