In It’s Not Weird Anymore: An Extraordinary True Tale, Laura Legere pays tribute to Elizabeth Gilbert, the much-acclaimed author of Eat, Pray, Love, which has now been filmed with Julia Roberts in the leading role, in the following words: “Reading her book really inspired my own writing. It gave me the impulse to dig deeper and get more descriptive, and like mine, hers was a spiritual journey.” The outer journey that Laura describes takes her from Mexico to Egypt and Hawaii, with her inner journey being just as fascinating. Laura describes her recovery from a scooter accident in the first half of her book—on shore in Mexico from a cruise ship, she lands up hurtling over the handlebars of her scooter face first into a solid coral rock ditch. How she recovers from such a devastating accident, from which she experienced remarkably little pain, forms the first part of her book. She transformed what would, for anyone else, have resulted in severe psychological and physical trauma into a wonderfully restorative lesson in how best to cope with what, on the surface, appears to be a dire form of adversity. On the physical front, Laura was able to reduce
the amount of her severe facial swelling by 80 per cent within two days by having a friend apply essential oils to her face while she was lying in hospital. But her journey into her deeper self is even more penetrating and long-lasting in its effects. Laura is a firm believer in alternative healing methods, and she reveals to us not only her own experiences of the beneficial helping hand of nature, but also those of a number of others whom she encounters along her way, including those of Peter, whom she marries in the course of the book, and who has serious health issues of his own, including having to live with Hepatitis C and an addiction to smoking.

 
What Laura also shares with Elizabeth Gilbert is not only the nature of her journey, but also her exuberance about life in general. No wonder she feels so little pain, because not only are her treatments physically restorative (and one should keep in mind that she has her own private practice as a massage therapist and teacher of natural healing in essential oils), but they are spiritually so too. Her approach to life is singularly positive, in that she believes that we choose whether to suffer from the mental and physical blows that we endure in life. By choosing to dwell on what has happened to us in a negative light, we inflict a great deal more harm on ourselves than the incidents might ever have caused of themselves. Laura shows us a way out of self-pity and self-inflicted torment through sharing with us the many remedies that she herself has used and benefited from both directly and indirectly.
 
The second half of It’s Not Weird Anymore: An Extraordinary True Tale consists of a resource guide, in which Laura describes in detail a range of helpful therapies and products that she advocates we use to restore and maintain our optimal health. I would highly recommend that you also consider listening to her radio interview that she makes available on her website. I found the warm vibrancy of her voice truly reflects her grounded and deeply soulful personality. Don’t miss this chance to come into touch with a gentle and inspiring woman who has a great deal of compassion for, and empathy with, those who seek a deeper meaning in life.
