This Is How I Save My Life: A True Story of Embryonic Stem Cells, Indian Adventures, and Ultimate Self-Healing by Amy B. Scher

“When Life Kicks Your Ass, Kick Back” – Amy B. Scher  

A fiery young woman with a debilitating and misdiagnosed disease (Lyme Disease) travels to a tiny clinic in India for a controversial embryonic stem cell treatment. On the journey to save her miserably failing body, she 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.
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 is for anyone who believes in—or doubts—the existence of miracles and the infinite power of self-healing. 

This Is How I Save My Life is Amy's story with her diagnosis, mis-diagnosis, what she does about it and how her decision affects her life on different levels.  She struggles for awhile before she makes the life-altering decision to journey to India where they are doing embryo stem cell treatment, something they aren't doing here.   

There, she has is presented with a totally different cultural, beliefs and makes new friends.  She learns more about herself and how her story is really inspiring.  For the most part, the book is comprised of blog entries, which really is easy to read and understand what is going on in Amy's thoughts.  There's a forward, so to speak, where Amy explains why she decided to share her experiences and than a wrap-up.  

Amy's very candid, which I admire.  She's also funny, ironic and honest.  Her story rings true and is inspiring.  You don't need to be suffering from a chronic illness to read her story, it's captivating and uplifting.  I'd recommend it to anyone!

With a history of chronic illness, Amy B. Scher set out to discover the foundation of healing. She is an energy therapy practitioner with offices in Los Angeles and Monterey, California. She is a frequent contributor to healthcare blogs and has presented to groups including the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University. Amy lives by the self-created motto: “When life kicks your ass, kick back.” She is eternally thankful for her years of illness and her ultimate self-healing.

  2. Thank you so very much for this amazing and well-written review! I'm beyond thrilled you enjoyed it!


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
