You’re faced with a difficult health condition. You have exhausted medicine’s answers. What do you do? Susannah Meadows tells the real-life stories of seven families who persisted when traditional medicine alone wasn’t enough.
Their adventures take us to the outer frontiers of medical science and cutting-edge complementary therapies, as Meadows explores research into the mind’s potential to heal the body, the possible role food may play in reversing disease, the power of agency, perseverance, and hope—and more.
When journalist Susannah Meadows noticed her three-year-old son, Shepherd, shying away from soccer practice, she had no idea it was the first sign of juvenile idiopathic arthritis. The diagnosis was the first step of a long journey, physically painful for Shepherd and emotionally wrenching for Susannah and her family. But they pressed on, and using a combination of traditional and complementary medicine they beat the disease, and the odds.
Meadows chronicles her own story, and takes you into the lives of other remarkable people, exploring their heartbreaks and triumphs. One boy who has severe food allergies undergoes an unconventional therapy and is soon eating everything. An organic farmer in Washington State tries to solve the puzzle of her daughter’s epileptic seizures. A physician with MS creates her own combination of treatments and goes from a wheelchair to riding a bike again. A child diagnosed with ADHD refuses to take medication and instead improves his life, and the life of his family, after changing his diet. Other families take on rheumatoid arthritis and autistic behaviors.
Meadows includes new information about traditional and nontraditional medicine and the latest science on how the health of our gut bacteria is connected to wellness—and how the right foods play a key role in helping this microscopic population thrive. She also talks with scientists who study the traits and circumstances that may make some people keep going when others feel helpless. These researchers are illuminating the psychology of healing—how the mind, and asserting control over your body and health, can play a part in recovery.
Fascinating, moving, and profoundly inspiring, The Other Side of Impossible gives us people driven by love, desperation, and astonishing resolve—a community of the defiant who share an extraordinary talent for hope and for fighting the battle for healing in today’s world and tomorrow’s.
Praise for The Other Side of Impossible
“[Meadows] has compiled compelling stories about people who faced and ultimately surmounted daunting medical challenges. . . . Their stories left me in awe of their persistence against formidable odds.”—The New York Times
“Throughout these tales, a common attitude binds people together: hope. . . . What cannot be refuted are the will power, perseverance, and hopefulness of the patients and families profiled here.”—Booklist
“This is a terrific book for those who need encouragement to take control of their diagnoses, and for their physicians and families.”—Publishers Weekly
“If you love someone, read The Other Side of Impossible.”—Jon Meacham
“I laughed out loud more than once, choked up more than twice, and generally marveled at the lovely humanity and sharp mind at work. This extremely useful guide to never giving up is journalism at its most responsible, intelligent, and compassionate.”—Kelly Corrigan
“The Other Side of Impossible is an amazing book—insightful, compassionate, and quite possibly life-changing.”—Curtis Sittenfeld

Finally I get this ebook, thanks for all these The Other Side of Impossible: Ordinary People Who Faced Daunting Medical Challenges and Refused to Give Up I can get now!
I was suspicious at first when I got redirected to the membership site. Now I'm really excited I found this online library....many thanks Kisses
I did not think that this would work, my best friend showed me this website, and it does! I get my most wanted eBook
I found out about Playster in the New York times and I'm very happy about it: “One of the newest contenders in the crowded field, a company based in Montreal called Playster, offers music, games, TV shows, movies and e-books through its service. Playster recently struck a deal with HarperCollins to include 14,000 backlist books in its service.”
My friends are so mad that they do not know how I have all the high quality ebook which they do not!
I stumbled upon Playster 2 months ago. I've upgraded to a premium membership already. The platform now carries audiobooks from: Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, HarperCollins UK, Recorded Books, Tantor, and Highbridge. HarperCollins US titles are already in the library. Great service.
so many fake sites. this is the first one which worked! Many thanks
wtffff i do not understand this!

The Other Side Of Impossible Is Possible
By Delores TwoBears
The other side of impossible is a book written by Susannah Meadows. However, it's also a real place. And a Holy ground you too, can stand on. One day, maybe as soon as tomorrow, you can stand here too, on the other side. And be able to look back and say, "because I believed in absolute truth and believed beyond all doubt, the solution to my loved one's pain was here. I never gave up Hope and we are really here, standing on the other side of impossible." Once your here, it's the other side that will seem surreal to you. The days, months, years and dollars you spent within a faulty healthcare system will be the place most impossible for you to ever return too.
Ordinary people solve these problems today, more than we know. And Susannah Meadows finally shines the light on a hand full of these wonderfully, stubborn people. I, myself through years of research and DNA testing have solved major autoimmune issues within my family. No more biologics and pain here, on the other side of impossible. I'm similar to the people in Susannah Meadow's book in one major way. I'm the little engine that could. And I did!
I hope Ms. Meadows will follow up with a second book based on LDN, also know as Lodonal and low dose naltrexone. I highly recommend, "The Other Side Of Impossible."

A must read for those needing inspiration to keep fighting medical challenges
By Rebecca Fett
Susannah Meadows is an incredibly talented writer and someone who clearly believes in science and modern medicine, but who has also witnessed first-hand the fact that doctors don’t always have all the answers. This book is a beautifully written account of personal triumphs over medical challenges, including the story of Meadows’ own son’s recovery from juvenile arthritis. It will hopefully inspire many others to keep pursuing answers and never give up.

A Gift for Families that Need One
By Daniel McGinn
I don't have a deep interest in alternative medicine, yet I found myself deeply interested in this book. I've since gone on to buy copies for several families I know who are struggling with the kind of health issues described. Highly recommend it!
