This is a wonderful book, the journey of a woman steeped in faith who struggled with CFS for most of her adult life until she found a path to wellness, having been disappointed time and time again. It has been a while since I finished the book and yet it has stayed with me, especially Melinda's deep awe and unshakable love for her Creator as well as her knowledge of the Scriptures. The author is a stringer of stories, a weaver of words, a firm believer and unshakeable witness, along with the British monarch, to homeopathic wellness. I could not put the book down. Don't miss this awe-inspiring trip that goes on forever.

I did not know what to expect when I started this book, but as I turned page after page, I found myself looking into a mirror of sorts. As a retired military intelligence officer I suffer with chronic conditions, the likes of which have stumped the medical community. So as I started to relate to the trials and tribulations of the author, my mind started to open and the life-lessons started to become clear.
I have been (still am) skeptical of the medical profession who have thrown countless prescriptions my way to stop my pain (Percocet since 1997), all the while hoping and praying that I would find a doctor that would heal, not just treat, my conditions. The topic of alternative medicine always surfaced but I blew it off as “magical mumbo-jumbo”. But then a doctor, Harvard Grad at that, enlightened me on something awesome: most medical students are told to encourage the faith of the patient. If they believe God can cure, encourage them to continue to pray for healing. The mind is a powerful tool that, if used for good, results in good things happening.
This book has provided me with a little extra hope. I have tried almost everything to relieve the pains, but the author’s brilliant journey outlined in this book was a source of empathy and sympathy for me. What has worked for her may just work for me too as I am a strong believer in God and his healing powers. Not to say I will give up on traditional medicine; but I am impressed with the homeopathic touch newer doctors are bringing to the table.
So overall, this is the author’s life story battling a chronic disorder through her personal journey of faith. And since I can relate and since I enjoyed “experiencing” her road to triumph, I can only say “Wow!

Back to Bienville, A Journey into Wellness by Melinda Matthews has been on my reading radar for quite a while and this week I decided it was time to bump it up my To Be Read list and see what it was about. I can’t remember the last time a book held my attention the way this one did. I think it is because the author discovers Homeopathy healing and that is a subject I have been reading up on. Not only does the author explore homeopathy, as she begins to heal, she embarks on a wonderful journey of growing in her faith. I enjoyed reading as she details the steps of healing. One of the things that impressed me in the story was the author’s ability to step back from the understandable drama and tragedy that complicates the life of someone living with multiple health issues. She alluded to the personal affects without slowing the story down. Back to Bienville, is an inspiring and easy read and I recommend it if you have health issues the medical doctors can’t seem to cure, or even if you just have medical issues.

I have to admit I purchased this book because of the title and the picture. We winter in the Biloxi-Mobile area each winter and having met the author online, I expected a lovely story about the deep south. What I discovered as I quickly read and turned page after page, was a near parallel on the journey I have taken since a car accident in the '70's left me "totally disabled". There were times as I read the story that my heartbeat quickened because I had walked in her shoes for so many years. They were years filled with fear and despair at my inability to function like normal people. I hid in the house as she did, fearful to go out and let anyone see how bad things really were. It's amazing when your life turns in on itself like that...People don't come and search you out. You are left alone with the terror and disgust that you are unable to complete the simple and mundane tasks that everyone else seems to flip through so easily.

Like the author, I listened to the medical doctors for far too many years. I allowed them to prescribe medications that further degraded my ability to function. Her journey like mine, is one of knowledge and awareness. Whenever illness destroys our very lives, we are forced to slowly discover the road to health on our own. It seems as if it's far too easy to prescribe mind-numbing drugs to take away the pain. I remember screaming one day that I wanted exercise and diet advice. I demanded they help me learn to heal. This is the journey described in "Back to Bienville". Faith was part of my journey just as much as compassion and courage were.

For anyone who struggles against insurmountable odds, this story will provide insight and guidance.
