Julie Rooney has become a passionate advocate for the roles we take in promoting our own health and well-being. By the time the youngest of her four children had graduated from high school, ten years after her initial diagnosis, doctors told Julie that they had run out of options. But instead of resigning herself to an early death, she decided to try an alternative approach to healing, with the help of a most unlikely guide. Today, Julie Rooney leads a healthy, medication-free life in San Francisco, lives near three of her four adult children and is the proud grandmother of two lively grandsons. This is her first book.
