( - Bestselling health author and patient advocate Julia Schopick interviewed nine patients with life-threatening diseases for her bestselling book, Honest Medicine.  In every case, the lifesaving treatments the patients found saved their lives--yet they learned of these treatments on their own.

Often, their doctors did not approve of their choices. But for all nine patients, the treatments they found on their own worked. The treatments featured in Honest Medicine are Silverlon for nonhealing wounds; Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) for autoimmune diseases such as MS, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn's disease; the Ketogenic Diet for childhood epilepsy; and intravenous alpha lipoic acid for terminal liver disease. The nine patients' stories of hope and healing with these treatments are inspirational. Schopick says doctors are sometimes wary of treatments that haven't undergone extensive mainstream clinical trials, even if thousands of patients have been saved by them and there's documentation to prove it. Other times, doctors simply don't know about the treatments.

Either way, says Schopick, it's up to patients to educate themselves and their doctors about these life-saving treatments. She says the first challenge is to "follow your intuition" or as she puts it, "follow your gut," and she shares tips on how to do this. Schopick can also discuss: -- How to know if a "miracle cure" you read about is snake oil or the "real deal" -- How to talk to your doctor about a promising treatment option you learned about -- What to do if your doctor dismisses your idea

Julia Schopick is a patient advocate, health writer, and creator of the award-winning blog The author of the Amazon bestselling book, Honest Medicine: Effective, Time-Tested, Inexpensive Treatments for Life Threatening Diseases, she has appeared on hundreds of talk shows and is often invited back, and her columns and articles have appeared widely in the national press. Schopick coaches patients on how to approach their doctors about a treatment they don't know about. Learn more at
