“When I first heard the title of this book by Amy Rothenberg, I thought,“That is very Oliver Sacks-ish title.”And,indeed, the first sentence of the preface to this book reads, “I devoured my first Oliver Sacks book when I was nursing our first child.” Read full review

"Reading this book is like spending a week with Dr Rothenberg. It is like following Amy closely through her day, listening and watching how she interacts with her patients, but also learning what she does outside of work, the sort of things you would learn from another physician if you really spent time together."

“Amy Rothenberg ND presents herself and natural medicine in an astute but extremely sweet way. A nice exposition of natural medicine.”
Christiane Northrup, M.D.
“The A Cappella Singer who Lost Her Voice is a fascinating journey through the complexities of natural medicine as seen through the eyes of a skilled naturopath. There are many practical gems in this book.”
Joseph Pizzorno, ND
“While the philosophy of naturopathic medicine ‘let nature heal’ sounds enticing, what really counts is whether patients get better. Dr. Rothenberg’s book is wonderful - stories of real patients with difficult problems being healed. Enjoyable and even inspiring reading.”
“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, practical, and a wonderfully entertaining addition to the literature of natural healing.”
Terrific stories and an inside look at one ND's practice
I bought this book as a gift for a friend and surreptitiously, barely cracking it open, read straight through the entire book. The stories are captivating. It was truly fascinating to read Amy’s journey in life, tracing the trajectory of life experiences and professional experiences. Her story reveals what kind of Naturopathic Doctor she is and how she approaches her practice. If you have only experienced “regular” primary care physicians, and I have a terrific one, by the time you finish the book you will wish that your doctor was like her. It probably is important to say that I have been seen and treated by Amy and her skill and warmth and intelligence are even better in person! That said, read this book and if you cannot get to Connecticut, where her practice is located, try holding your own doctors to a more encompassing and human standard. As they say, shameless plug for the book and for Dr. Rothenberg, I am clearly a fan!
