HASH(0xb62815a0) out of 5 stars Refreshing for the music lover's soul Feb. 18 2011
By Dawn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love how Sally Fletcher refers to music as a "Spiritual vitamin." As a musician who has studied music therapy, I could hardly put the book down, and I re-read different sections of the book many times. I found some new information about the power of music, and was fascinated by some of the stories. I often listen to Sally's CD's, "Healing from the Harp" and "Hymns for Healing" and they are both excellent for stress relief and reflection.

HASH(0xb62818e8) out of 5 stars Very Helpful Jan. 30 2011
By dedicated reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Get out there and grab a copy! This is not only a great read, but a book full of advices from the author, who experienced the pain of epilepsy, and overcame the challenge of dealing with it. If you've been injured from all kinds of daily activities in life, or have the annoying aching that won't leave you in peace, then what are you waiting? Go ahead and purchase the book. I'm one of many happy people, who received the help that I was looking for, thank you.

HASH(0xb6281b34) out of 5 stars A pamphlet length introduction to epilepsy Nov. 24 2005
By Dr. T - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I recommend this book as a place to get started in learning about epilepsy. Although it is not very scientific, there are no outlandish claims. It presents a realistic picture of epilepsy and a reasonable approach to dealing with it.

On page 9 the author states that she believes that a combination of methods (neuro-feedback, positive thinking, increasing self esteem, yoga, correct nutrition, stress management, spirituality, music and regular exercise) helped her overcome her seizures.

The details are spelled out in chapters 2-9. Chapter 10 is a nice outline summary of her thoughts. It can serve nicely as a guide for people searching for ways to better deal with their epilepsy.

The comments about traditional medical treatment are honest and respectful. The chapter on medication and side effects is unfortunately quite out of date considering that the book is copyright 2004. In fact, none of the newer and very popular medications (felbamate, gabapentin, lamotrigine, oxcarbazepine, tiagabine, topiramate and zonisamide) are even mentioned. In spite of that glaring omission, I recommend it as a great place to start.
