Publisher's Summary

One day Donna Jackson Nakazawa found herself lying on the floor to recover from climbing the stairs. That’s when it hit her. She was managing the symptoms of the autoimmune disorders that had plagued her for a decade, but she had lost her joy. As a science journalist, she was curious to know what mind-body strategies might help her. As a wife and mother she was determined to get her life back.
Over the course of one year, Nakazawa researches and tests a variety of therapies including meditation, yoga, and acupuncture to find out what works. But the discovery of a little-known branch of research into Adverse Childhood Experiences causes her to have an epiphany about her illness that not only stuns her - it turns her life around.
Perfect for fans of Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project, Nakazawa shares her unexpected discoveries, amazing improvements, and shows listeners how they too can find their own last best cure.

Amazing book, but struggled with the voice.

What did you like best about The Last Best Cure? What did you like least?

This book in incredible and I highly recommend it for anyone suffering chronic illness and/or anxiety.

What didn’t you like about Karen Saltus’s performance?

I hate to write a bad review on anyone - but it was really difficult to get past the reading. It was like listening to a pharmaceutical commercial for 7 hours. Like a voiceover robot. From the first second of listening, I was constantly distracted by the fact that the voice didn't go with the book. The voice didn't sound genuine or from a real human. Does that make sense? Just like a really really long commercial.
