IC Hope


a home for alternative and holistic healing

"Believe in your body's ability to heal itself."

--- Catherine M. Simone


Now available in paperback and ebook, the completely updated and expanded edition of Along the Healing Path is the impetus for the re-birth of my website. IC Hope was born in 1998 with my first book To Wake In Tears. Healing myself from a severe case of IC and wanting others to know that there is hope are the reasons for my books and website. As a recovered patient who was around during the early days of the internet as an online IC support group leader, I spent my time helping patients heal using alternative treatments just as I was doing for myself. Speaking at group meetings for many years and doing individual consultations for nearly two decades was all part of why I ended up writing books and creating the dvd. Although I've been offline for the past several years dealing with lymphoma, the re-birth of IC Hope and new edition of Along the Healing Path are my way of letting you know that yes, I am still free of IC. It is possible to go through stressful life events and other health issues and stay healed from IC. Even with all that I have been through, still I see hope.
