Part memoir, part medical treatise.

Jo Dixon was a successful hospital consultant and a mother of four in her early 40s when she was struck down by a mystery illness. She started falling over, forgetting things and getting lost. Her symptoms bore all the hallmarks of dementia, and they left her fearing she wouldn’t live to see her children grow up.

In desperation, Jo became both doctor and patient, as she fought to find the cause of her devastating symptoms before it was too late.

What she discovered, and reveals for the first time in this memoir, has the potential to be groundbreaking and change the way we think about dementia and other diseases, including diabetes, IBS, fibromyalgia, and even anxiety – the missing piece of a puzzle that has evaded scientists for decades.
