Reviewed by Anne Boiling for Readers' Favorite

It's Not Weird Anymore: An Extraordinary True Tale by author Laura Legere is her spiritual journey. The story begins with the author and her friend Julie vacationing in Mexico. They were riding scooters in Cozumel when Laura crashed her scooter and landed on a coral rock. Many bones in her face were broken. Her eyes swelled shut. She broke her upper-palate in half that left a large gap between her front teeth. Her nose was barely hanging on. After extensive x-rays she was in surgery. I found it significant that she experienced little pain. She describes how having essential oils applied to her face reduced the amount of swelling significantly. Laura believes in and practices many forms of alternative therapies. Among the methods she mentions are Raindrop Aromatherapy, essential oils and Lymphatic Massage.

This book is Laura's deep spiritual journey. Along her path she met many others who have assisted her and whom she has assisted. She met Peter on an internet dating service three weeks before the accident, fell in love and married him. He has Hepatitis C and went through his own healing journey with Laura's help. Laura embraces life. She has a positive mental, physical, emotional and spiritual demeanor.

The last section of this book is a list of resources which Laura mentions or supports. These resources are to repair and preserve our best possible health. Laura offers insight into the use of Belly Dancing, Acupuncture, Chiropractic, Colon Hydrotherapy, as well as a multitude of others.

I'm very impressed with Laura Leger's book, It's Not Weird Anymore. The story of her healing is miraculous. She believes in the energy of the body, nature, and all of creation. I have had a minimal experience with herbal therapy, certainly not enough to be considered an expert. However, I do believe it is worth investigating. I was so curious about many of the therapies that I took time to do a little research on some of them.

This book is well-written, well-organized, easy to understand and very informative. It is very easy to recommend this book.
