Kicking Sick: Your Go-To Guide for Thriving with Chronic Health Conditions

by Amy Kurtz Author and Mark Hyman Foreword

From being a tween in chronic pain to a pill-popping young woman to a woman in charge of her own health, Amy Kurtz learned a huge amount about her body and about chronic illness, assembled a team of health professionals who helped her find an accurate diagnosis (celiac disease), and built an online community of women determined to take charge of their own health and healing. This book draws on that team and community to provide a comprehensive road map to wellness for women who suffer from chronic pain, fatigue, and sickness, and who are often undiagnosed, ignored, or even ridiculed by the medical system. Chapters focus on self-advocacy, assembling your team, developing self-care habits, healthy movement, food issues, spiritual healing, and social aspects of illness. Includes a smattering of worksheets you can use to figure out your plan and navigate your path to wellness.
