“Lily Casura has performed a great public service with her new book, Gentle Medicine. It is likely to become a classic of the world literature on treating chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia with natural medicine. Most health books fall into one of two easily identifiable categories: they either espouse the limited views of pharmaceutical medicine or they promote an alternative “cure.” Casura’s writing is quite different. She doesn’t hide the fact that it was alternative medicine that gave her the greatest success in her own battle with the disease. But she is clear-eyed and critical about the relative merits of all treatments. This is the first book I would give a friend who was suffering from this mysterious, but debilitating, disease.” —Ralph W. Moss, Ph.D., award-winning science writer, author of numerous books on natural medicine and cancer.
“Lily Casura’s Gentle Medicine is a welcome and substantial contribution to the literature on chronic fatigue and alternative medicine in general. She writes from a journalist’s perspective, taking the reader on a friendly and very informative journey through effective alternative treatment options for chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia sufferers. She also tells her own story of recovery from chronic fatigue, adding a personal and important touch to the book. You will feel informed, supported and encouraged.”—Ralph Golan, M.D., author of Optimal Wellness: Where Mainstream and Alternative Medicine Meet.
“I very much appreciate both the specific therapeutic suggestions and the thoughtful, human-friendly approach.”—James S. Gordon, M.D., Director, Center for Mind-Body Medicine; Chair, White House Commission on Alternative and Complementary Medicine.
