Debbie was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosis and Raynauds Disease when she was 32 years old. She was told by the specialists that she would be on a cocktail of drugs for the rest of her life and that she would Have to modify her lifestyle This was a red rag to a bull. Debbie did her own research into healthy nutrition, alternative therapies and even went as far as training to become an exercise teacher in the hope that she could at least decrease the cocktail of drugs she was taking. To the doctors amazement and I might add her own, she became so fit and well that she was able to come off ALL MEDICATION. Debbie managed for 14 years to lead an active life teaching exercise to various groups. She taught the blind and partially sighted, amputees, special classes for the older generation in preventing falls. Debbie also teaches Tai Chi and Qigong to the over 50s and is regularly asked to go along to patient groups to talk or do demonstration on the benefits of exercise. In October 2011 Debbie collapsed during the Beachy Head marathon a tough cross country event and was unable to finish it. Rushed into hospital with a suspected Lupus flare up Debbie was devastated to be told she had YET ANOTHER auto immune disease. Lambert Eaton Myasthenis syndrome of (LEMS). She spent 6 weeks in neuro hospital being fed and watered through a tube. She lost over a stone in weight (all Muscle) LEMS is a condition where the message from the brain to the muscle doesnt connect so the muscles cease to work and they dissapear leaving Debbie unable to sit upright or stand on her own, swallow, talk or breathe properly or in fact do anything much for herslf. However Debbie knew that once she knew what she was fighting she was up for a battle once more, after all she had beaten disease before she could do it again. So her road to recovery was a long and difficult one but less than 6 weeks after release from hospital Debbie was back running, just a mile and a half at first, but progress was swifter as the weeks went on and before long Debbie was back to fitness and in the October of 2012 a year sfter her collapse she returned to Eastbourne to run the Beachy head Marathon this time completing it with resounding success. In hospital she had been put on 9 different drugs, on release from hospital she was down to 7 and now in March 2013 the list is down to one, which her doctor is bringing down gradually the dosage to eventually cease altogether. So Debbie will once again be managing her illness through her diet and lifestyle. This is a story of hope and encouragement for others whether they are battling with illness or not. A truly inspirational read....

About Debbie Pentland

I have often been told that I should write a book on how I manage my auto immune disease without drugs through diet and lifestyle and positive mental attitude. It wasnt until I contracted my 3rd auto immune disease (I know Im just plain greedy) that I decided to turn the diary I had been writing during those long six weeks in neuro hosptital into a book. My aim is to give hope and encouragement to others who may or may not be battling illness. I truly believe that if you get your mind right the body will follow. I am very lucky that I have a wonderful husband and fabulous friends who have all played an important roll in keeping me fit and well. Surround yourself with positive people and you cannot go wrong. I enjoy a wonderful life filled with fun and laughter. I teach exercise and feel an enormous sense of achievement in the knowledge that I play a part in helping others make the most of their health. My hope in writing this book is to share that joy in helping others. I might add also that ALL proceeds from my book will be going to the Lupus, Lems and raynauds charities who do such a wonderful job looking after us all and providing funds into research looking for cures. Big Hug to you all who decide to buy a copy. Thankyou.
