Book Description

What Will I Get From This Book?

BEYOND MEDICINE is relevant, interesting and meant to be read - not just filed for reference.

As a physician I must note that there are times when life is over for the brain-body as it has been, and a time comes for that person to move on. "Hope" at that point can be directed towards that "Great Unknown" which follows.

While recognizing that you may die prematurely in spite of the best medical care, BEYOND MEDICINE offers hopefulness not helplessness. This is NOT a book about the medical details of how to treat ARDS. It is a book about how families and friends can take action on behalf of their loved ones with ARDS or any life-threatening disease - heart, cancer, stroke or other. BEYOND MEDICINE is a book about helping miracles happen.

Through my experiences and those of others, you will learn methods and tools beyond medicine to help yourself and others in dealing with a medical crisis wherever you may encounter it.

BEYOND MEDICINE is meant to be as much fun for you to read as it was for me to write. I believe in the "Play Theory of Learning" - which believes changes in thinking, feeling and doing occur most effectively when the mind is in a playful mode. Just as children and pets learn from play, so do adults. I hope you enjoy experiences of "Ah Ha!" and "Ha Ha!" as well as "Ho Ho!" along with a few "Oh Oh's", examining your own life in relation to the stories. We learn and are motivated more from stories than from statistics.

Beyond the excellent Medical care I received, six elements of healing stand out in my ARDS experience: Love, Prayer, Humor, Touch, Music and Pets. There may be other elements for you and your family and friends when you encounter a crisis, as you surely will at some time in your life. These true stories give hope to all who are facing high odds against recovery. It has been said, "There are no hopeless situations - only situations where people give up hope".

Editorial Reviews


I highly recommend Dr. Yarnall's gripping story to you. Journey to the edge of life with Steve and then return to a fuller life with him. You will find the trip to be an exciting ride you will never forget. --Lester R. Sauvage, M.D. , Cardiovascular Surgeon Founder, The Hope Heart Institute, Author of "The Open Heart"

Not only are you trying to teach the world about Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome - (which I had not heard of prior to reading your book), but you are presenting a theory of consciousness which far transcends ARDS. --Maralyn Chase, State Representative 32nd Legislative District, State of Washington

At a time when medical technology seems to be the answer in life threatening illnesses, you bring us back to the realization that it is not just high-tech, but also family and community support … You have touched something vital in the American way of thinking …whatever it is, it's beyond medicine. --Noel Tiano, PhD., Former Chaplain at Washoe Medical Center

About the Author

After Dr. Yarnall's miraculous recovery from ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome), he felt the need to increase awareness of this disease which may be much more common than generally recognized, and which can strike anyone at any age and at any stage of health.

Dr. Yarnall includes his own story and selected stories of others with ARDS to give a personal face to this devastating illness. Each ARDS story is fascinating and together they present a message of hope even when physicians have pronounced the prognosis as "hopeless".
