Over 100 guests attended the launch of Paula Reed’s book, “Onion Therapy” on 5th May at Mountsorrel Memorial Centre. The book was also co-written by Soar Valley Life’s Editor and Writers’ Coach, Steve Johns.
Onion Therapy is the story of Paula’s life, looking for answers to the biggest health issues of our modern age. For the last ten years she has steered the Loughborough Cancer Self Help Group, one of the oldest groups of its type in the UK, and Paula is the current chairperson.
Her personal story tells of her childhood; losing her Mother to cancer when she was only nine years old, and having to grow up very quickly to look after her younger sister and cope with her drink dependant father. She had to live with the inner turmoil of being sexually abused by a family friend and being too ashamed to tell anyone for more than thirty years. Onion Therapy is the revelation of her healing journey and the answers she has found for everyone to share.
The book can now be purchased on-line via www.oniontherapy.co.uk
