The A Cappella Singer Who Lost Her Voice & Other Stories from Natural Medicine is a collection of essays and patient cases from the files of a long time practitioner of natural medicine.

Her story and this book help to define and exemplify the work of naturopathic medicine and further propel patients, medical colleagues and policy makers toward deeper understanding and appreciation of these effective and gentle approaches to healing.
“In this charming, informative and inspiring book, Dr. Amy Rothenberg tells the story of her life as doctor, mother and partner, and of her work with many patients. The book is philosophical, fun, poignant, and practical--and a wonderfully entertaining addition to the literature of homeopathy and of natural healing.”
