Medical treatments seem to get more promising every year, but they also seem to get more overwhelming. Faced with a seemingly infinite array of choices in the area of cancer treatment, what's a patient to do when time is of the essence? Breast Cancer: Beyond Convention is both a starting place and a steady companion through the labyrinth of health care. Assembling writing from over 20 experts, including Susan Love, Dean Ornish, and Rachel Remen, this guide intelligently touches on a range of complementary therapies while teaching readers how to choose among the possibilities for optimum results.
Chapters include essays on Chinese medicine, diet, meditation, micronutrients, and guided prayer, which cover issues from scarring and reconstruction to soy and osteoporosis. Each section includes concisely documented research and tips on how to distinguish the genuine healers from the "quacks"; at the end of the book is an excellent contact guide for information on all these topics, as well as nationwide support groups and specialized research clinics. For purposes of either prevention or treatment education, you'll find supremely helpful information that calmly helps navigate the waters of modern medicine. --Jill LightnerAbout the Author:
