Alonzo Mourning Dedicates Chapter 12 of his book to Healing & Dr. Hotchner.

“I drove over to his office with absolutely no faith that anything he suggested would work. I doubt anyone has ever walked into his office more skeptical of holistic medicine than I did that day. I wasn’t going to achieve wellness, I was going to achieve peace and quiet from my wife. But a couple of things started to make me reconsider. First off, Dr. Hotchner is very serious about what he does. …He is very knowledgeable about western medicine but he has alI’ve been under a tremendous transformation in the five years I’ve been under Dr. Hotchner’s care.  Just tremendous. I have a whole new attitude to life. It is like a whole new universe opened up to studied holistic and natural approaches and, armed with all the information, chose that route. “In 2000, Mourning was on top of the world: He had a fat new contract, an Olympic gold medal, and a second beautiful child–all that and the fame and wealth he had earned playing the game he loved. But in September of that year, he was diagnosed with a rare and fatal kidney disease. Over the next couple of years, as his health faltered, he retired, unretired, and retired again–and sought to make sense of the rest of his life.

Finally in 2003, after a frantic search for a donor match, Mourning had a new kidney and a new outlook. He vowed to make this second chance count by dedicating his life to others. He resolved that he would consider the disease a blessing, a revelation of God’s plan for him.

Tracy and Alonzo have kindly allowed us to post chapter 12 of his book to share the story of his journey to healing. Please read it below.
