Publication Date:




Susun Weed, the founder of the Wise Woman Center in Woodstock, New York, takes an upbeat, encouraging look at the options of women living with breast cancer in BREAST CANCER? BREAST HEALTH! In this occasionally audacious book, Weed encourages every woman to use her intuition when making intelligent healthcare decisions and to consider herself a modern "Wise Woman," the healing elder indigenous to all cultures. Weed, an herbalist since 1965, encourages women to use herbs and natural alternatives to treat themselves in conjunction with conventional medicine or alternative therapies. No mode of treatment is discounted and all can be enhanced with herbal supplements, according to Weed. A good portion of the book discusses 30 of the most important cancer-fighting herbs and how to incorporate them into any treatment routine. This charmingly illustrated book includes a risk-assessment survey, a directory of helpful organizations, and a glossary of medical and herbal terms. This is a book for all women regardless of health status who are looking for a positive approach to breast care.
