Moraga, California (EastBayDaily) — In her new book “Rising from the Abyss: My Journey into and out of Chronic Illness” (published by Balboa Press) author Holly Reese, MSOM, L.Ac., describes her complicated and emotional journey as she succumbs to a rare autoimmune illness called Mixed Connective Tissue Disorder. Reese submits to the harsh cycle of Western drugs before she decides to quit and embark on her own healing journey using alternative medicine.
Reese feels that Western medicine has failed her in many ways. Her book highlights the flawed aspects of the U.S. health care system with its overreliance on the pharmaceutical industry and focuses instead on alternatives to Western medicine that help nourish the whole body, mind and spirit.
“I want to inspire hope and let people know they can accomplish the impossible, come from the bottom of the abyss and create wellness for themselves,” said Reese “My goal is to encourage people to take action, manifest the health they want and get their own lives back.”
Reese is an acupuncturist, herbalist, wellness coach and founder of the Inspire Wellness Center. She seeks to guide individuals back to health using natural and holistic healing alternatives such as acupuncture, nutritional remedies, qigong, meditation and educational tools.
