Book Description

Nov. 11 1998
To Wake In Tears is the revolutionary book that introduced the herb marshmallow root to the IC community back in 1998. It was the first book to look at IC from a holistic perspective claiming that IC is not just a bladder disease. In order to truly heal from IC, the whole body must be treated. Within the story of how the author healed herself from a severe case of IC are a multitude of practical, safe, helpful tips for IC patients to use to help themselves heal. Like Simone's other two books (Along the Healing Path and Awakening Through the Tears), this book is empowering, inspirational, and ground breaking in its discoveries of various physical connections with IC, as well as offering ideas of how to address them safely, naturally, and without the use of toxic medications and invasive medical procedures.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST HAVE for IC patients April 18 2004
I just want to thank the author for having the courage to follow her instincts, to never accept that IC is something that she'd just have to live with, for researching and doing so much hard work and for writing this book and sharing her experience with the rest of the world. I also want to thank her husband who was so supportive and gave her the love and atmosphere that she needed to heal. I can really relate to what the author shares with us about her husband because I, too, have a wonderful man in my life who give me so much love and support and strength while I am trying to find my way back to health. This book made me laugh and cry. I can't begin to explain how comforting it was to read about someone else that was going thru the same IC expereince as I was. She makes the connection between the bladder symptoms and issues and the other illnesses, symptoms that many IC patients suffer with. It was nice to know that I wasn't just a hypochondriac or 'going crazy'. This is a must have for anyone suffering from mild to severe IC. It gave me so much hope that I can get better and have a normal life again. This book is really about reaching out to other ICer's, sharing the experience, and letting people know there are alternatives out there..It's about empowering people..just a great book.!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book helped me totally recover from IC Aug. 6 2003
By Sue
I saw some other reviews 2 or 3 years ago on how this book had helped other women so I bought it back in the spring of 2001. I had suffered from IC for 12 years. I didn't know what to do to get better - I wasn't improving from medications that I had been on from doctors and I was feeling very discouraged and scared. So, I read this book (along with Along the Healing Path, her 2nd book) and was amazed how much I could relate to Catherine's story and the hope I felt afterwards. I KNEW I had to try some of the things she did to heal. What is great about this book is most of everything she suggests is natural and non-invasive. I have always felt that our bodies should be able to heal without a bunch of drugs and surgery. I was noticing some improvements with my symptoms within a few weeks and I gradually kept getting better and better. It took me about 2 years for the last symptoms to finally go away. Everyone heals differently so it definitely requires patience and believing you will get well. Don't give up! This book also helped me heal the IBS symptoms that I was experiencing for a number of years too. I can't tell you how grateful I am to God for guiding me to Catherine's books. ...

5.0 out of 5 stars becoming educated about interstitial cystitis Sept. 14 2003
having worked in the medical field for several years, i thought was pretty much informed about many things. after reading catherine's book "INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS" THE MIND, BODY' SPIRIT CONNECTION, i realize one can never be informed enough. catherine taught me that there is always hope for recovery from this horrible disease and sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands to try and get well, listen to your body, it will tell you what to do and what not to do. also that fear can prevent you from doing the things that make you well. i have just ordered along the healing path, i have begun to cleanse my body, and i will keep fighting this because of catherines' wisdom. she taught me not to give up. this book was beautifully written. i felt she was telling my story. i recommend her books to anyone suffering from this bladder disease or any ilness for that matter. thank you cath for all of you hard work and your beautiful spirit, you are truly a god send.

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY.....someone who understands! May 31 2002
By A Customer
What a blessing this book was! Confirmation that I'm NOT going crazy. So many Drs. told me it was all in my head and since my diagnoses, no one has seemed to understand. It felt like Catherine was writing about me! I'm so thankful that I read this book and her second one as well. This lady certainly knows her stuff and seems to have put a lot of time and effort into studying this disease.
I would love to see this author on Oprah or The View. Catherine has so much info and could reach so many more patients if she were on one of these shows!
Thanks Catherine!

4.0 out of 5 stars Alleviating Fear Sept. 27 2013
Verified Purchase
I am so sorry Catherine Simone suffered through so much, but eternally grateful for sharing her experience with the rest of us who also suffer this debilitating illness. Her book inspires hope and lessens the fear and aloneness initially felt when first diagnosed and being told "there is no cure".
