Chi­ro­prac­tic Patient Writes Book on Expe­ri­ence — I Stand Amazed

There is prob­a­bly no bet­ter advo­cate for chi­ro­prac­tic care than a patient whose life has been changed by it. Geri Carl­son is just such an indi­vid­ual who was so moved by her life chang­ing expe­ri­ence, that she decided to write about it. Her book, “I Stand Amazed: How Chi­ro­prac­tic Saved My Life” chron­i­cles her jour­ney from des­per­a­tion to amazement.

As described in her book, pub­lished in early 2007, Geri awoke one late Jan­u­ary morn­ing in 2004 and as she put it, “My world was about to col­lapse.” On that morn­ing she awoke and was hav­ing trou­ble breath­ing as well as a feel­ing of “numb­ness in her brain”. She had dif­fi­culty focus­ing or even per­form­ing sim­ple tasks. She felt like she was “jump­ing out of her skin” and she believed she was going to die.

Over the next sev­eral weeks the sleep­less­ness, hys­ter­i­cal cry­ing, and myr­iad of other symp­toms left Geri at wits end. Her vis­its to a vari­ety of med­ical doc­tors pro­duced no answers and only served to fuel her des­per­a­tion. At one point she felt hope­less and was barely able to speak when one physi­cian, who was offer­ing new med­ica­tion told her it would take sev­eral more weeks to know if the med­i­cine could help. At this low point hav­ing lost hope, she uttered, “I won’t be here.”

It was at this low point that Geri started care with a chi­ro­prac­tor she had gone to some time ago. Not to give the book away, but in her words the results were, “Mirac­u­lous, instan­ta­neous, and amaz­ing.” The dras­tic change in her life that resulted from her chi­ro­prac­tic care led her to write this book.

Although sci­en­tific evi­dence and stud­ies are always a wel­come addi­tion to any health care process, a patient’s responses are the ulti­mate goal. “I Stand Amazed” by Geri Carl­son is a tes­ta­ment to how chi­ro­prac­tic can change the lives of peo­ple dur­ing the dark­est of health times. The book is for sale at Ama​zon​.com, Barnes & Noble, and Tar­get. You can see more infor­ma­tion at the book’s web­site at: www​.istan​damazed​.com.
