Last Best Cure

The life of journalist and author Donna Jackson Nakazawa took a dramatic turn when she experienced numb limbs, muscle spasms, poor reflexes and a host of other medical problems. Stricken with Guillain-Barré syndrome, an autoimmune disease that sent her into years of physical therapy and doctors’ visits, her life boiled down to basic survival. Things turned around for Nakazawa when she met a Johns Hopkins doctor who introduced her to mind-body therapies. She chronicles that journey in "The Last Best Cure: My Quest to Awaken the Healing Parts of My Brain and Get Back My Body, My Joy and My Life." Original air date 2/27/14
