Through the Shadowlands -
A Science Writer's Odyssey Into an Illness
Science Doesn't Understand
Hardcover: 288 pages
Publisher: Rodale Books
Publication Date: May 23, 2017
Science journalist Julie Rehmeyer was so sick
she sometimes couldn't turn over in bed.
The top specialists in the world were powerless to help, and
scientific research on her disease was at a near standstill.
She was running out of money.
And she was all alone, with no one to care for her.
Having exhausted the plausible ideas,
Rehmeyer turned to an implausible one.
She followed the advice of strangers she'd met on the Internet .
They struck her as crazy –
but they had recovered from chronic fatigue syndrome as severe as hers.
Leaving behind everything she owned, she drove into the desert,
testing the theory that mold in her home and belongings was making her sick.
Stripped of the life she'd known and the future she'd imagined,
Rehmeyer felt as though she were going to the desert to die.
But she didn't die.
She used her scientific savvy and investigative journalism skills
to find a path to wellness -
and uncovered how shocking scientific neglect and misconduct
had forced her, and millions of others, to go it alone.
In stunning prose,
Rehmeyer describes how her illness transformed her
understanding of science, medicine and spirituality.
Through the Shadowlands
brings scientific authority to a misunderstood disease
while telling an incredible and compelling story of
tenacity, resourcefulness, acceptance and love.
