In early 2004 Carmel L. Egan was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, a serious autoimmune disease for which western medicine believes there is currently no cure. Her doctor strongly recommended she immediately commence daily injections of an immunosuppressive substance for the rest of her life, and told her to "hope for a cure". However Carmel knew she had a choice - to accept the diagnosis and advice of her doctor, or trust that there was another answer available and that she would find it. In an amazing series of synchronistic events, Carmel was led to a treatment protocol that offered the potential to arrest the progress of the disease and facilitate a reversal of her symptoms, which included impaired vision, and loss of mobility, balance and co-ordination. Her belief in her body's ability to heal itself was pivotal to the events that followed. This is Carmel's adventure with MS. 'This story is relevant not only to people diagnosed with MS and their family and friends, but also to anyone who finds themselves in any situation in life where they feel trapped and powerless, but must make a choice even though the outcome may be uncertain.
It is about faith, courage, trust and taking a leap into the unknown.' Carmel L. Egan, Author
