Alternative Medicine Magazine's Definitive Guide to Cancer is chock full of positive, uplifting information. Proactive individuals will relish in the immense amount of preventative advice – especially the table on
healing foods, which tells readers what foods can act as medicine and keep us healthy.
Two educated and experienced individuals in the field of healing, alternative medicines and cancer collaborated on this extensive well-researched revision. Lise Alschuler (ND) – a naturopath – is the director of naturopathic medicine at Midwestern Regional Medical Center – Cancer Treatment Centers of America, an accredited regional hospital specializing in comprehensive integrative cancer care. Karolyn A. Gazella is a research journalist and health writer, the founding publisher of
Integrative Medicine Journal and the executive director of a non-profit alternative healing program in Colorado.
In this completely revised and updated edition of Alternative Medicine Magazine's Definitive Guide to Cancer, readers will find numerous tables that simplify the informative content along with touching and inspiring personal experiences of the authors and their patients.
I particularly enjoyed the foreword by Debu Tripathy (MD), the president and CEO of the Physician’s Education resource and former director of the Komen/UT-Southwestern Breast Cancer Research Program. This section
sis both uplifting and provided a simplified overview of what readers will find in this guide.
Patients who want to complement treatment of their current stage of this disease can easily do so with the very comprehensive guides to natural supplementations. The authors not only address the general treatment process for
cancer patients; they also delve much more deeply into each type of cancer and the treatments each of those variations of this disease will require.
Alternative Medicine Magazine's Definitive Guide to Cancer
has received rave reviews from professors, educators and professionals dealing with integrative, conventional and alternative medicines. Personally, I find this book much too valuable to donate to either the women’s center or the literacy group, as I normally do with books I have finished reviewing. Instead, I feel this book
is much too important to our community and have donated it to the local library, where everyone will have access to it.
