“Grant yourself permission to SHINE!” —Ilana Kristeva
With uncanny wit and wisdom, Ilana Kristeva shares vivid stories of her personal journey from “groaning to glowing.” While rebuilding her body out of a wheelchair despite an extremely painful nerve disorder (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome), migraine headaches, and the loss of her voice from esophageal erosion, Ilana reclaimed her life by embracing a wide spectrum of healing modalities—from West to East. Readers witness how her process of making daily living amends to her body, “Body-Part Reconciliation,” not only saved her from losing her legs but also from drowning in her love affair with excess: food, sex, alcohol, drugs, money, and more. Celebrate how this born rebel transformed her arsenal of “yes, but” excuses into active participation in a world filled with limitless possibilities.
Relax and enjoy a unique opportunity to experience life through the eyes of this Self-Care Vigilante™. Learn ways in which you, too, can feel fantastic in your body as you adopt her
Prepare to laugh through darkness and emerge into vibrancy!

Ilana Kristeva is rightfully unapologetic for being herself, as she is both unique and universal at the same time.” —Dr. William J. Conard, M.D., Asclepius Pain Management
“Having treated many patients with chronic and degenerative conditions, I found that most are unable to get out of the unconscious patterns that have created their illnesses. This story offers much hope to those who suffer.” —Dr. Sean Patterson, D.C., Body Restore
