AdmittedlyÂ living a life of clichÃ©s such as "there are signsÂ everywhere,"Â "nothing is by chance,"Â and "this too shall pass," her life takes a U-turn after oneÂ serendipitous meeting in Maui.Â She falls into a conversation with a woman whoÂ has just returned from India after receiving radical medical treatment. Amy'sÂ love affair with "signs" from the Universe is all she needs toÂ propel her research about this treatment--and from there, the adventure begins.
Free spiritedÂ and fiercely driven, she takes a leap of faith and travels to Delhi, India forÂ an experimental embryonic stem cell treatment. Unsure if she has been given theÂ equivalent of a never-ending ladder in the game of Chutes and Ladders, or isÂ making a medical mistake that will kill her, she dives in, never losing hold ofÂ her humor and hope.
From the time she steps foot in the magical countryÂ of vibrant colors and endless honking horns, she valiantly defends herself against "Eastern philosophical bullshit," and those suggestingÂ she can think her way back to health. She instead focuses on her place as theÂ first patient with Lyme disease to undergo this treatment and manages to keepÂ her eye on the prize of surviving. She quickly discovers though, healingÂ isÂ muchÂ more than just physical. She'll not only need faith in the stem cells, but alsoÂ a healthy dose of self-introspect and lessons in the art of 'letting go.'Â
This country whereÂ pedestriansÂ risk their lives crossing the street, but cars stop for sacred cows, wraps herÂ in its spirit and becomes her greatest teacher. Armed with her self-createdÂ motto, "when life kicks your ass, kick back," she embraces her challenges withÂ gusto and never looks down, reminding herself it's simply,Â the wrong way.Â
Scher's adventuresÂ are encountered with a fresh perspective and childlike curiosity. Her experiences areÂ both hilarious and heartbreaking - from the Ayurvedic treatment where she details listening to the sound of her own thighs slapping together on an oiled wooden table; to her TajÂ Mahal road trip where people are poverty-stricken and unclothed,Â but goats are wearing sweaters and jewels; to the agonizing doubt she manages to overthrow as she struggles with a degenerative disease where no standard treatment path is paved.Â
Years after Amy's return from India, she finds her healing journey is far from over. With as much courage and grace asÂ she can muster, she heads off in a different direction--and discovers a part of herself that she never even knew was missing.Â Amy's noÂ holds-barred attitude will inspire you to see the hidden signs in your own lifeÂ and challenge your deepest beliefs about healing.Â Why do some people heal from emotional or physical issues, while others don't? 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 isÂ for anyone who believes in--or doubts--the existence ofÂ miraclesÂ and the infiniteÂ power of self-healing.
