"David Atkinson's remarkable recovery should provide not only hope but a blueprint to be emulated with everyone with such diagnosis. His approach is safe, reasonable, and the only hope I know at this moment in time for these difficult diseases" (motor neuron diseases such as ALS or Spinobulbar Muscular Atrophy) C. Norman Shealy, MD, PhD
This book is a true story and represents a path of hope for anyone facing a serious illness. It is also for the caregivers, physicians, and those individuals who want to take a preventative approach to illness.
It indeed represents a path to greater understanding of each of us as whole beings.
David Atkinson, on the verge of a long-planned family move to Florida, began to have serious physical problems. The initial diagnosis was amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease, for which there is no cure.
But David became determined to fight against a prognosis of no hope and the prospect of becoming a statistic.
Working with traditional doctors and exploring alternative treatments he found a way to slow and reverse most of the serious symptoms of his motor neuron disease that interfered with his living a reasonably normal life.
