by Ginny Chandoha
Ginny Chandoha was diagnosed in 2009 with a rare and incurable auto-immune disease, Lichen Sclerosis, but within eight months had fully resolved and recovered from it.
“I refused to allow an auto-immune disease to become a part of my life and that started my search for possible causes and a way to cure myself,” she states, “and what I learned changed my life.”
Prompted by her physician to write the book, her journey from diagnosis to full recovery is described in Lichen Sclerosis: Beating the Disease. Ginny believes that the contents “Can benefit people on many levels including those with chronic illnesses, those that are healthy and wish to remain so, and for health care professionals who want to do more to help their patients with chronic illnesses, and illness in general.”
In the book’s Foreword by Dr. Steven Coward, he writes: “Its content is vast, deep, and well-researched…It’s one of those books every health care provider should read, and that everyone would benefit from reading…”
“For years I thought I was doing everything right,” she continued. “I took my vitamins regularly, ate lots of salads, did the things most everyone considers healthy. I was shocked to discover that my vitamins were 100% synthetic and not readily absorbed by the human body, products I used daily contained heavy metals that studies found were absorbed into the body and concentrated in malignant tumors. I had to examine everything I had previously taken for granted for my entire life and make health changing adjustments. I put everything I learned into the book.”
In her book Ginny details the healing protocol she developed. “There are many facets to the healing protocol,” she explained. “In trying to regain health most people focus on food, but there are many other things that contribute to illness that are routinely overlooked. For example, a chemical found in most of our every day products accumulates in our body and destroys the protein structure of our skin cells, which is a precursor to skin cancer. While the healing protocol addresses the obvious contributors to illness, most importantly it eliminates these toxic accumulations and helps the body heal itself on a cellular level.”
What makes Lichen Sclerosis: Beating the Disease stand apart from other self-help books is that it includes case studies she personally worked with who fully regained their health by following the recommendations and healing protocol that are discussed in depth in her book.
“The case studies include both genders and range in age from very young to adult, and in each instance the case studies had seen multiple doctors for various ailments, and had been on multiple prescriptions without relief. After following the recommendations and healing protocol as described in the book, they are fully recovered and, like myself, have remained healthy and disease-free for over 4 years,” the author said.
Lichen Sclerosis: Beating the Disease is a print-on-demand paperback available online at Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com, and is also available in Europe and Australia.
