With unflinching honesty, Emily Filmore instructs and inspires by her own courageous example, showing readers how to transcend the pain and frustration of living with a chronic illness to live a life of joy, purpose, and deep personal satisfaction. I highly recommend this compassionate guide to anyone suffering from an autoimmune disease who is interested in dramatically increasing their quality of life.' -Terry Wahls, M.D. Clinical Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of Iowa, and author ofThe Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles'The story Emily tells in her own voice is one of sincerity, clarity, experience, and ultimately of hope. She eloquently transfers the life lessons she has learned as a patient into a guidebook for others who may be suffering in silence. I'm delighted to highly recommend The Marvelous Transformation to my patients and all patients with autoimmune diseases.' -Lisa Christopher-Stine, Director, Johns Hopkins Myositis Center, Associate Professor of Medicine and Neurology, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine'The Marvelous Transformation is an honest, intimate, and entertaining read based on personal experience with autoimmunity. Emily engages her readers by incorporating activities throughout the book while guiding them through their exploration into a complex illness process that does not have to be a negative experience. Whether you are a patient, caregiver, healthcare professional, or interested in learning more about living with autoimmunity, you will find great knowledge, an array of resources, and helpful tips that you will want to share with your family and friends to help them better understand autoimmunity.' -Jerry Williams, Board President, Myositis Support and Understanding Association'A must-read for autoimmune patients. A delightful book that empowers you and those who love you to make the best out of a difficult relationship with autoimmune disease. This book will help you find your healthfulness.' -Patricia Barber, Assistant Director and Patient Educator, American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association'Emily Filmore writes about her struggle with autoimmune disease with honesty and compassion. She offers tips on how to thrive while living with physical limitations that come straight from her own experience. If you or someone you love suffers from an autoimmune disease, Emily's words will help you feel less alone in what often feels like a lonely grind.' -Aisha Sultan, Nationally syndicated, award-winning columnist, Home and Family Editor for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch'In the US alone, it is estimated that one in five or 20 percent of people suffer from autoimmune diseases. Emily Filmore lovingly and openly shares her journey-one of learning, spirituality, strength, love and compassion. This book is bound to help others by inspiring them, and their family members, to know that they too can handle anything that life might throw at them.' -Karin Volo, Best-selling author ofEngage! and theBringing Joy series
