This Is How I Save My Life: From California to India, a True Story of Finding Everything When You Are Willing To Try Anything

(Gallery Books at Simon & Schuster, April 2018)

“Amy Scher is a brave warrior and a wonderful writer”
#1 NY Times Bestselling author of Eat, Pray, Love and Big Magic

The true story of a fiery young woman’s heartwarming and hilarious journey that takes her from near-death in California to a trip around the world in search of her ultimate salvation. Along the way, she discovers a world of cultural mayhem, radical medical treatment, and, most importantly, a piece of her life she never even knew she was missing.

When Amy B. Scher was struck with undiagnosed late-stage, chronic Lyme disease, the best physicians in America labeled her condition incurable and potentially terminal. Deteriorating rapidly, she went on a search to save her own life – from the top experts in Los Angeles and the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in Minneapolis to a state-of-the-art hospital in Chicago. After exhausting all of her options in the US, she discovered a possible cure – but it was highly experimental, only available in India, and had as much of a probability of killing her as it did of curing her. Knowing the risks, Amy packed her bags anyway and flew across the world hoping to find the ultimate cure.

This Is How I Save My Life is a powerful and uplifting story of sheer determination for anyone who believes in – or doubts – the existence of miracles and the infinite power of self-healing when it seems like all hope is lost.

“Amy Scher is a brave warrior and a wonderful writer. She is a living example (very much living!) of what it looks like when a woman takes her health, her heart, and her destiny into her own hands. My hope is that this book will inspire many other women to do the same.”

Lessons from Lyme Disease, Chronic Fatigue, and Fibromyalgia: A Collection Of Stories, Insights, and Healing Solutions

(May 14th, 2014)

This book is more than just about disease signs and symptoms. It is a collaborative memoir of hope. Too often, Lyme disease, chronic fatigue, and fibromyalgia patient message boards and forums have only stories of defeat. Hardly does anyone tell a story that offers the most potent healing ingredient of them all: insight from having traveled the path. To really heal and help others do the same, we must go beyond the dis-ease. We must choose to focus on how the experience is simply part of our story. And just like every story, it has its lessons that help us grow and heal.

This book of lessons includes 20+ stories, each written by individual authors, that focus on positive lessons learned from illness. It offers emotional, physical, and spiritual guidance for a chance to heal through the experience of others.

You’ll learn the top approaches that have worked for others just like you, the most important lessons to remember while experiencing illness, and most importantly —  that you really CAN heal.

This book is for anyone with a “chronic illness” that has felt lost, scared and lonely. The stories of others will both educate and inspire you — helping you just a little further along on your own path.
