In 2011, an ER physician predicted “a slow and miserable death” for author Margaret Starr’s youngest son, thirty-four-year-old Clint. With twenty-six heavy metals in his body, Clint’s liver was dying, and his adrenal glands had stopped functioning. His intestines had microscopic holes in them, and he suffered from leaky gut syndrome. With the death clock ticking, this medical mystery took over Starr’s life while consuming her son with riveting pain. Starr chronicles Clint’s lengthy and painful journey in and out of hospitals and surgery. She narrates how she went underground to save him from Tilt (Toxic Induced Loss of Tolerance) and how, in 2014, she finally saved his life through nontraditional treatments, nutritional supplements, lifestyle changes, and whole food choices. When Doctors Don’t Listen tells the family’s story of healing and encourages others to stay vigilant and persistent during treatment so holistic healing is possible.
