In her new memoir, “Out of the Fog: Adventures through Lifestyle Change” (published by Balboa Press AU), author Alana Henderson describes her journey from the turbulence of concurrent major illnesses – stroke, cancer and diabetes – through numerous adventures and challenges to build a confident, healthy, exciting and quality life.

“The book challenges (health professionals) to apply best practice and creativity rather than limiting their knowledge in day-to-day work tasks,” says Henderson. “This includes learning from health and educational models where everyone wins.”

As a baby boomer, Henderson questions stereotypical images and expectations of people as they age, especially in the face of major illnesses. The book provides a strong basis on which to proceed into the next phase of one’s life with health, fitness, confidence, enthusiasm and creativity.

An excerpt from “Out of the Fog”:
My determination to continually test the limits was the catalyst for me to feel the joy of success across the various challenges that I encountered. I took up the options that felt good for me, and ran headlong with them. I learned new ways to cope with the turbulent waters. I always focused my thoughts positively on finding alternatives, to achieve outcomes that were far higher than I could ever have imagined or planned.
