Slow Medicine

Hope and Healing for Chronic Illness
By Michael Finkelstein, M.D.

William Morrow (2015)

Integrative medicine pioneer Dr. Michael Finkelstein has helped tens of thousands of patients with his novel blend of conventional and holistic medicine. In this refreshing new book, he outlines his groundbreaking perspective and shares the tools you will need to manage your own recovery from the vast array of ailments and illnesses that often go unresolved in the modern American health care system. Drawing on decades of medical experience and patient consultations, as well as a good dose of common sense and practical wisdom, Dr. Finkelstein shares revealing lessons, practical prescriptions, and illustrative anecdotes from real patients.

I spent over three years writing the initial draft of my manuscript, and after all that time I was rather attached to it and felt considerable trepidation in seeking a writer who could help me with the material. However, I was immediately at ease once I met Ellen and we began to work on the project. Not only did she help me reorganize and improve the writing, but she brought it to another level altogether. And throughout the process she was an absolute pleasure to work with.
