This book is in many ways an answer to the most common questions people have asked since To Wake In Tears was published in November of 1998. Along the Healing Path includes a discussion of IC from a holistic perspective, more specific information on herbs, natural products, and alternative treatments, a special section on vitamins and minerals, as well as many helpful tips for those looking for a more natural approach to treating their IC. This book also contains a discussion of the many reasons why alternative treatments may not have worked for you in the past, common problems people run into, and more information on how to go about developing a healing plan of your own.
