Book Talk: The Invisible Kingdom: Reimagining Chronic Illness

Setup

Bouncing from doctor to specialist to alternative health practitioner and back again, millions of ailing people are offered a battery of tests and a medicine cabinet of therapies—and still find no respite from their symptoms. To have a chronic illness that the medical system can not diagnose and does not understand is to take a journey with experts who are at once bewildered and skeptical of patients they do not know how to heal. In a poetic, personal, and science-based narrative, author Meghan O’Rourke shares her own experience and the larger challenges that reveal the limits of medicine.
