From the Inside Flap:

If you or someone in your family has been diagnosed with cancer, you’ve felt the rush of fear. “How will I get through this? What are the doctors telling me? What hope do I have?” Then you face the big choices: Is surgery the right thing? Chemotherapy? What about radiation? And somehow, in the quiet moments, you decide to move forward. You determine to be one of the more than 8 million cancer survivors today, and to live a life as wondrous as ever before.

Healing Outside the Margins can help you do just that. It’s not a book of “miracle” cures. Rather, it’s a book about making the right choices about your own cancer care. It’s about integrating the treatments your doctor has suggested with new and exciting therapies that have helped millions of cancer survivors. And most importantly, it’s a book about separating the quackery from the real and effective treatments. It’s about making important choices that will help you physically, mentally, and spiritually. In Healing Outside the Margins, author Carole O’Toole shares the results of her extensive research. After being diagnosed in 1994 with incurable breast cancer, Carole spent the next seven years researching alternative healing therapies, studying their benefits, and determining what works and what doesn’t.

Healing Outside the Margins gives you reliable, extensive information on the enormous range of complementary treatments, practitioners, and resources available today. You’ll learn:

-Step-by-step guidelines for constructing your own “action plan” for choosing complementary therapy

-What to expect from treatment sessions

-How to determine which therapies work for you

You’ll find detailed explanations of 25 valid and credible healing techniques that can help you regain energy, including:

-Massage

-energy healing

“Complementary therapies saved my life,” says author Carole O’Toole. In 1994, O’Toole was diagnosed with extremely aggressive inflammatory breast cancer and given 18 months to live. That’s when O’Toole began her seven years of intensive research on complementary techniques, which continue to support her physically, emotionally, and spiritually to this day. As a professional “cancer coach,” O’Toole co-created Finding My Way, one of the nation’s leading advisory services for women with breast cancer. She speaks to cancer survivors and health professionals about integrative treatments throughout the country.
