February 2020 — Dr. Tenesha Wards, D.C., A.C.N., founder of Austin’s Infinity Wellness Center, is pleased to announce the launch of her new book, What to do When Your Doctor Gives up on You: 7 Secrets that Find the Problem, Boost Energy, & Bring you Back to Health.
The book is intended to guide those who’ve had trouble finding answers to their chronic pain, constant fatigue and other mystery medical issues through a conventional medicine approach toward solutions that may lie in holistic and integrative treatments. Inspiration for sharing her knowledge in this book not only comes after many years of successfully treating hard-to-diagnose patients in her Austin clinic, but also from her own personal health struggles with Lyme Disease, Autoimmunity and Epstein Barr Virus.
“I know personally how infuriating it is to be told that because your lab tests are ‘normal’ that nothing is really wrong with you,” says, Dr. Wards. “It’s also frustrating to be prescribed medications or invasive surgical procedures without knowing the cause of the problem.”

Personal Power Portrait by Photographer, Korey Howell
I owe my fearlessness and my passion for healing to my experience of the deep fear that comes from unrelenting pain. Overnight I went from the natural fearlessness of a fifteen-year-old girl to a deeply frightened teenager experiencing intense pain. Quarantined because of a red feverish rash that covered most of my body, doctors ran test after test to no avail.
No one could figure out the source of the rash, swollen joints, and pain. Pumped full of drugs and steroids, I only gained weight and got worse. My fears and my parents’ fears escalated. One day I finally surrendered and told my mom I wanted to die.
Looking back, I crossed a bridge that day. I didn’t know it then, but I found the power that comes from acknowledging and naming a deep fear and letting others help you move through it. For after that, my mom moved past her own fear and stepped up the research she did to find an answer. Her insistence that I be tested for Lyme disease – – rare and unheard of in Michigan at that time – – is what saved my life. Witnessing my mother transforming her fear into action has forever made her my hero, inspiration, and rock.
From her example of leaving no stone unturned and the inspiration born out of that painful experience, I now passionately work closely with my patients to uncover the source of their illness, empathize with their pain and frustration, and then stay the course to help them heal. For me, being fearless doesn’t mean you never experience fear. It means you name it, claim it and then courageously move forward, while allowing others to support you.
I daily count myself blessed to be able to use my experience to help others move through their fears and heal
Fearless Wisdom to share: Only you know your body best. Fearlessly listen to it, be kind to it, feed it vital foods, exercise it, rest it and most of all love it. Be in control of your health and never, ever settle for less than optimal.
