There are a number of wonderful stories online by people who have been able to bring themselves into spontaneous remission through natural therapy.
It has taken me a really long time to truly believe that I could do it myself. A few years at least. But the more I read about ITP, the more I keep coming back to it. Take for instance the story of Sasha from the PDSA website. Who after working so hard to naturally cure myself – still is unsure what influence she had. Many people get better for a number of difference and unexplained reasons – Are all these spontaneous remissions just coincidence or are they from persistence and effort?

Joan Young is one of the few people who has written and published a book on her experience with ITP and her own remission.
