Author Info

Barbara Cordell is a holistic nurse with forty years of experience and dozens of published articles including research on Auto-Brewery Syndrome (ABS). When her husband Joe, was diagnosed with ABS she took a deep dive into the literature and research on the rare disease in order to help him and others get well. Her hobbies are reading non-fiction and staying active with yoga, paddling kayaks and boards, and bicycling.

Barbara and Joe live a peaceful life on a lake in East Texas and spend time with nearby family and friends. They have a son in San Diego, four fur-babies, and a camper to travel just about anywhere they can. They are active in church, Rotary and other worthy causes.


The first book on the rare and bizarre disease known as Auto-Brewery Syndrome (ABS) is now published! My husband developed the syndrome in 2004 after having surgery to repair a broken foot. I spent six years chasing a diagnosis and cure. Now I spend my days trying to help others who think they or a loved one might have ABS. 

I’m a holistic nurse and started my website to share information but thought now was the time to tell our stories. My book covers the science we know and stories of five families affected by this weird disease where a patient’s body makes alcohol. Please help us share the message.
