Genre: Memoir. A woman  travels from California to India in search of a life saving medical procedure to cure her Lyme disease.

From my Goodreads review: A true story on finding one's true self after agonizing illness and pain that could have been less dramatic, if only.... In India, Amy Scher, suffering from advanced Lyme disease, finds out that she has the power to heal herself, while undergoing embryonic stem cell treatment in India.

A sign with these words are not posted anywhere on our arrival, but it should be.
