Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Multiple sclerosis is a debilitating disease that has long been regarded as being almost beyond the possibility of successful treatment. For many patients a diagnosis of MS has meant the end of a normally functioning life. Not any longer.

Celeste Pepe was a vigorous 42, a busy chiropractor and naturopath, when she an MS diagnosis.

What does an expert in alternative medicine do when she gets seriously ill? Dr. Pepe realized it was time to put her deep belief in alternative medicine to the test. She resolved to find and employ effective natural ways to reverse this condition and restore her health. She did, and her multiple sclerosis is now a thing of the past.

Dr. Pepe’s remarkable healing odyssey took her through many disciplines, theories, and practices in the world of natural medicine and into the depths of her own body and mind. In the end, she distilled her successful treatment into a program that nay MS patient can follow to restore health. She explains this with clarity, medical precision, and a strong measure of encouragement.

Using her own healing experience, Dr. Pepe explains the nine step that can help the MS patient turn the corner on this disease: detailed nutrient testing and fortification, bee venom treatment, allergy testing, dietary changes, personally tailored nutritional plans, the use of specialized supplements, chelation therapy, regular exercise, and the replacement of mercury amalgam dental fillings. “I truly believe that if you diligently apply these healing protocols, which I have learned, you will no longer be known as an MS victim’,” says Dr. Pepe.

If you want a book with more sophisticated content - don't bother!
L. Molina
No one should take any advice from her at all and I don't think going to her as a chiroprator would be such a great idea either.
Michele D. Foster
I recommend this book wholeheartedly, both as an interesting read and an invaluable medical blueprint.

Honestly, I didn't get very far into this book before I began to realize that this woman was an imposter. She claims that she used many different methods (diet, yoga/exercise, and Bee Sting Therapy) to completely recover from MS......until you learn that she has only had MS for 5 years, and only the initial attack. Most of us who have MS can say that we recovered completely from our first attack, followed by a period of time (sometimes years) where we were free of the disease. Let's see if she can remain symptom-free for 10 or 15 or 20 years.

Format: Paperback
This book was not written for people who are sceptical about using alternative healing methods. Nor was it written for people who have little energy to spend on reading the work of an egotist. Don't misunderstand me! I am very much a believer in natural healing methods. When I have been vigilant about using CAM (complementray and alternative medicine) I have kicked this MS into remission. I admitedly slacked off the holistic health proptocol and am suffering through a horrible relapse which has caused me to rely once again on my cane and a wheelchair for extended distances. I bought this book to help get me motivated and back on track (ALTERNATIVE METHODS ARE TIME CONSUMING, ARDUOUS, EXPENSIVE AND EXHAUSTING... She forgets to mention that).
I was sent into sheer dissapointed with "DR" Pepe. She seems to have a huge ego. The greater part of the book served as a major opportunity to massage that ego ... and/or provide some major self-psychotherapy, rather than focusing on providing a service to the reader. Only a fraction of the pages gave actual information that is helpful. I didn't purchase the book to read about her humiliating MSers in wheelchairs by doing spins on her high heels during her presentations to the NMSS. In spite of the nauseating ego stuff, what was MOST disturbing is the fact that she is credentialed as both a Naturapath (ND) AND Chiropractor (DC), yet her clinical/nutritional knowledge base and patient-doctor communication skills were DEPLORABLE. When I purchased her book, I was shocked to realize how little she knew ... making it a waste of money, time and hope (the title is really catchy and instills false hope).

Format: Paperback
This book is more like a "travelogue" through Ms. Pepe's brief (5 year) journey with MS than a useful tool in comparing alternative therapies. She flits around between different therapies and theories and doesn't inspire much confidence in her choices. For example, she rejects Dr. Swank's low saturated fat diet and I can surmise that it's only because she misses eating butter and red meat too much. After all, this is a nutitionist who is used to eating steak and eggs for breakfast! When she abandon's Swank's diet, she buys 2 lobsters to celebrate. In her bibliography, she lists the 1987 edition of Swank's book which is the same one I read. It allows lobster in any quantity. Must be the butter she wanted to celebrate with!

Most people interested in alternative medicine show at least a smattering of compassion towards animals. Not Ms. Pepe. She ingests a disturbing amount of pig myelin which seems dangerous considering things like mad cow disease, and she uses bee venom therapy which kills perfectly innocent (and nearly wiped out) honey bees. I was an inadvertant recipient of bee venom therapy at age 12 when a bumblebee flew up the leg of my pants and stung me 6 or 7 times on the knee. I'm not saying bee venom therapy doesn't work, but since my knee only got terribly stiff and a bit itchy I'm not convinced it does anything positive for your joints.

I would love to see a book that did a thorough and dispassionate examination of alternative therapies. I've read of a study that showed regular yoga helping alleviate the fatigue associated with MS. Yoga has helped me and so has acupuncture although it got expensive and rather time consuming. Nutrition and supplements have helped as well. I would love to hear more about MS and meditation.

Format: Paperback
First, I must mention that I was unable to finish this book as a result of the glaring inconsistencies I found. I made it through Chapter 9, but do not want to waste my time with the rest of it. I'm not sure how much of this book is untrue but there are two things the author discusses repeatedly that I know to be false.

Betaseron is not a betablocker and is not even in the same family of drugs. Betaseron and all the other MS injectables the author mentions are interferon therapies. Huge difference.

The author completely misrepresents the Swank Diet. Anyone interested in learning more about this alternative treatment to multiple sclerosis, should buy Dr. Roy Swank's book "The Multiple Sclerosis Diet Book: A Low Fat Diet for the Treatment of MS." It is no where near as restrictive as Ms. Pepe makes it sound. Dr. Swank also provides years of research to back up his claims which this author does not.

All I have to say is that this book is the worst book on the subject of MS ever written! The only thing it succeeds in doing is engorging "Dr" Pepe's already huge ego and relaying idiotic advice from a woman who has self-proclaimed that she "healed" herself from this disease and then in turn makes fun of people with actual symptoms who looked to her for help.
I am a big believer in alternative and complementary therapies but this woman is exactly the type of person who gives CAM therapies a bad reputation.
After suffering through her long-winded self-love affair with herself, the only thing I took away from this book is that she has too much money and not enough ways to spend it.
As someone who has MS and has to deal with that reality on a daily basis I find this book to be insulting, deplorable, and detrimental to the education of others about this desease.
This book is awful and full of s**t. I would not recommend that anyone buy this book.
