I have struggled to cope with chronic illness and I have often felt like healthy living was out of my control as many of you have. From the moment I picked up In Your Hands by Dr. Larry Berkelhammer, I realized that I did not need to feel a loss of control and or that there weren’t enough answers.
There was a time when Dr. Berkelhammer had usual symptoms that no one could explain so he knows firsthand what feels like to be sick and not know why. Like many of you, he had to continue on with his life despite not feeling well and not having a diagnosis. In Your Hands narrates the doctor’s journey towards finding answers and trying to maintain a positive attitude so as to feel better physically better along the way. Eventually Dr. Berkelhammer got a diagnosis but, as reminiscent of this book, that was only a small part in his journey towards healthy wellbeing despite illness.
Dr. Berkelhammer is here to inspire us in kind and nurturing way. He knows we try hard to manage our illnesses and we do so day in and day out so he wants us to make the best use of our coping skills. He also knows that all of this has an effect on self-esteem and can lead to depression and feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. It is hard knowing that there are no cures for our conditions and that we cannot predict our lives day to day.
But Dr. Berkelhammer shows us a different way of living. He does this by gently nudging and encouraging you to think about all the ways in which you can live your life fully. He uses proven methods to teach you how to take charge of your health and emotions so that you become a master at your own health and wellbeing.
