After years of using a walker and taking numerous prescription drugs due to multiple sclerosis, Dr. Saray Stancic now runs marathons and takes no medicine for her MS. Her inspiring story, as well as her methods for overcoming many chronic illnesses, is in this book. She is the subject of the full-length documentary film Code Blue. In the fall of 1995, Dr. Saray Stancic was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. By 2003, she couldn't walk without assistance and was on numerous anti-MS medications, all with horrible side effects. After stumbling upon some studies that linked MS outcomes to diet and lifestyle, Dr. Stancic undertook a radically different approach to managing her illness. Within a short time she was off all MS medications, walking normally, and even resumed dancing and running marathons. Now, in What’s Missing from Medicine: Six Lifestyle Changes to Overcome Chronic Illness, Dr. Stancic shares what she’s learned about the incredible power that specific lifestyle changes can have for those living with chronic illness. Her medical practice is dedicated to prevent, treat, and even reverse chronic illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, IBS, Crohn’s disease, lupus, Parkinson’s disease, and many others, all by using tools that are grounded in science and backed up by medical studies. Dr. Stancic is highly critical of the medical community’s lack of success when it comes to treating chronic illness. What’s Missing from Medicine is therefore both an invitation to a better life as well as a clarion call for the medical establishment to make these lifestyle changes an integral part of the practice of medicine.
