Amy B. Scher: This Is How I Save My Life: Healing, Surviving and Coming Undone



By the time Amy B. Scher was twenty-eight-years-old, she had lived through almost a decade of misdiagnoses, excruciating pain, brain lesions, bone marrow biopsies, blood transfusions, and multiple hospital stays to treat her late-stage, chronic Lyme disease.


Taking forty-four pills a day and deteriorating rapidly, she consulted with more than sixty doctors, including the top experts in Los Angeles, the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in Minneapolis, and a state-of-the-art hospital in Chicago. When the best physicians in America labeled her condition incurable and potentially terminal, it was up to Amy to blaze her own path forward.


In this interview Amy discusses This Is How I Save My Life: From California to India, a True Story of Finding Everything When You Are Willing to Try Anything.


An award-winning and bestselling author of four books which are translated into 16 languages, Amy writes and teaches on the topics of healing, human-ing, and creativity. Through her work, she helps people break through blocks to become their happiest, healthiest, and most expressive selves. Her work has been featured in CNN, CBS, Washington Post, Cosmopolitan, Good Morning America, and more. She lives in New York City with her beautiful wife and bad cat.
