Writer and pharmacist Chelsey McIntyre opens up about her own struggles with gastroparesis and aptly guides the reader to a greater understanding of the condition. Through personal insight, expert analysis of medical information, and an incredibly gifted ability to explain the material in everyday terms, Dr. McIntyre fills in the gaps that are so often left by the medical community. Roadmap for Your Journey is truly what its name proclaims, providing readers with knowledge and guidance that will continue to serve them long after they have finished reading the book.
Topics covered include foundational material on evaluating information, understanding what is happening to the body, and navigating medications, nutritional supplementation, and alternative therapies. As the readers build their knowledge bases, they then enter an entire section dedicated to an in-depth discussion on medications and treatments written specifically for those with gastroparesis and the people closest to them. Alternative methods for obtaining nutrition and creative solutions to common diet roadblocks are also covered.
The book benefits from Dr. McIntyre's amazing ability to clarify the most difficult of topics and give the reader simple yet brilliant explanations to numerous questions that would take a lifetime to find on their own. As Martin H. Fischer once said, "Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification." This book, in conjunction with the author's additional work with chronic GI conditions, contains a world of wisdom within it.
