Heal Me: In Search of a Cure

Autobiography: science, technology & medicine, Memoirs, Popular medicine & health, Travel writing

A brutally honest, darkly funny and profoundly moving memoir about the author's global search for a cure to chronic pain

Like a third of the UK population, Julia has a chronic pain condition. According to her doctors, it can't be cured. She doesn't believe them. She does believe in miracles, though. It's just a question of tracking one down. Julia's search for a cure takes her on a global quest, exploring the boundaries between science, psychology and faith with practitioners on the fringes of conventional, traditional and alternative medicine. Raising vital questions about the modern medical system, HEAL ME is also a story about identity in a system skewed against female patients, and the struggle to retain a sense of self under the medical gaze.
