After years of living with severe rheumatoid arthritis, Lyme disease, anxiety, and ulcers, Hilde Larsen finally decided she was done with hospitals, medications, while barely hanging on to her life.

It was a choice that soon propelled her onto a lonely journey where she would courageously battle to not just overcome her physical challenges, but also to find her true purpose and a new beginning.


As she leads others through her journey from a total loss of health and vitality back to the life of her dreams, Larsen details her downward spiral triggered by recurrent ulcers and stomach issues, chronic pain, and ultimately the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis and Lyme disease.

Still, as Larsen reveals, she determinedly held onto hope and a message from an inner-voice that she could be healed.

She made a life-changing decision that would take her down the road to passion and thriving. She boldly stopped the medications that masked her symptoms, and was left bedridden for several years, with the truth of her condition.

Hilde Larsen then transformed her entire lifestyle, revisited and healed old wounds, and finally bid farewell to her old self and body.

Through it all, Hilde demonstrates that even the greatest of challenges in life can be conquered with faith, perseverance, hope, love and hard work.

“From HELL to Inspired chronicles one woman’s incredible quest to free herself from severe debilitating chronic illness, fulfill her dreams, and inspire others to take back their power.”

From Hell to Inspired, is the remarkable story of a woman who suffered to the point of becoming willing to relinquish everything, if she could not have her health.

The pages reveal a tremendous warrior, whose illnesses brought her to her knees, then brought her home to herself, to faith, to rock-solid confidence in her own intuition, then molded Hilde into a living example of the transformational power of self-love, and self-care.

I recommend this book to anyone healing through physical, or emotional challenges. I was truly inspired by reading Hilde’s story. Her journey back to health provides a path for anyone seeking guidance to making choices, in the natural health realm.

What I have lived to get here...

8 years ago, I decided I was done. I was done being sick and I was done struggling. I was so filled up on medications, hospital visits, anxiety and pain that I decided to just stop. I had been diagnosed with severe Rheumatoid Arthritis several years before, and was heavily medicated for a “severe” case.

The medical society tells you… you will be sick the rest of your life and that medications will help you live as “normal” as possible. What they don’t tell you, is that it is not our only option.

One day 8 years ago, I finally had had enough.

I remember thinking – “I will stop all medications and just lay here until I get well or die.”

I really did not care which, as long as what I was doing stopped.

From being a mother, a sister, a wife, a business owner, an athlete, and a friend, I just became sick. My world changed overnight. I was alone, and I did not know what to do to save myself.

I have always had a feeling that our society has wandered so far away from its true purpose. After reading «From Hell to Inspired», I have changed the way I see myself in this world. It has opened my eyes to another meaning, another sense of belonging, and it has given me the strength to believe in myself as the master of my life. I was relatively in the dark on many of the topics in this book, but my lack of foreknowledge has not been an obstacle because of Hilde’s honest and fascinating story. Her story keeps me, as a reader, tuned into the information shared. Her journey has made me cry, laugh out loud, and ponder big questions in life, and I find myself discussing the things I have learned from reading her story, almost every day. A true eye-opener, and an amazingly sincere and brutal truth, told by a strong and intelligent woman.

From Hell to Inspired” is an extraordinary story of one woman’s courageous transformation from debilitating illness and a bedridden existence into breathtaking states of vitality and strength. In a pivotal decision that forever changed her life, Hilde Larsen turned away from all medical treatment, choosing to risk death rather than take any more drugs. It was in that moment that she began to chart her arduous path back to health, gaining knowledge of natural healing techniques of raw fruits, vegetables, herbs, and deep cellular detoxification. Through her power of conviction and determination, Hilde achieved the miraculous—a new life filled with transcendent, shining, health—along with a profound love for herself and all of life. A landmark book, thought provoking and inspirational.

I just completed the book “From HELL to Inspired” by Hilde Larsen. This is a must read for anyone with a chronic illness at ” the end of their rope.” She writes in a way that is relatable to the reader and I felt her pain throughout her journey. It is a book filled with hope, inspiration and courage to change. I cried throughout the book and was inspired by the powerful ending. I can relate to many of her uphill battles and the relief in finally trusting that your body can and truly wants to heal. This book made a hard and trying time, brighter and much easier for me. Thank you Hilde for being a part of my healing journey.

“Dear Hilde, I found your book very moving, your approach full of knowledge and wisdom which gave me goose bumps at times when I could easily relate to the topics. I found your way of writing very easy to follow which made this interesting book so much more absorbing. Your personal journey of a “normal”, successful and modern woman with the usual diet and stresses we encounter in our ever increasingly hectic schedules, is a reflection of what so many of us face today.

The transition from being capable of so much, being relied upon by so many to being bed ridden with an effectively incurable illness by the established medical profession, was a shock to read. With unknown origins and no cure, the best of Western medicine could only offer generations of pain killers which furnish you with mounting side effects and painful regression of life and hope. Driven to not only survive day and night in pain but to live once again, your inspirational story of self healing is miraculous.

The knowledge you have passed onto me through reading hundreds of healthy lifestyle books; many of which have been focused on alternative medicine, and the “unorthodox” methods of self healing has been very enlightening. Mother Nature has helped us find the cure and with your book I’ve found renewed hope to remedy my own pains. I look forward to passing on this book and the wonderful insights you’ve given to my family, friends and anyone who wishes to escape the ambush which lies ahead of them. I eagerly anticipate your second book full of your guidance on recipes, diet plans and spiritual direction to further grasp my understanding of what I can do to feel better. Thank you Hilde for your own testimony of the struggles and proving that victory over Rheumatoid Arthritis is possible.”
