With his training, Dr. Nan Lu revives the ancient healing wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine --

  • Ancient self-healing evergy movements
  • Healing, strengthening foods and ancient techniques to strengthen you before surgery
  • How to manage your health during chemotherapy or radiation
  • Why and how to create a new Traditional Chinese Medicine lifestyle that addresses the root cause of breast cancer...
  • and much more!

    "I am committed to educating all women that there are naturaland effective healing actions they can take to help prevent breastcancer, as well as prevent a recurrence," writes Nan Lu, a specialistin traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). TCM is a 5,000-year-oldmedical system based on the concept of internal vital energy (Qi) flowto maintain or restore our organs' normal function andharmony. According to TCM theory, "you absolutely cannot get cancer ifyour organs work in harmony and Qi flows freely throughout your body'smeridian network."

    This book explains the philosophy, history,principles, and theories of TCM; how these relate to breast cancer;and how a woman can restore harmony with TCM self-healingpractices. The practices include movement, dietary recommendations,herbs, emotional balance, and mental messages. However, the book ismore theory than self-help. For example, Lu suggests "a combination ofTCM herbs and special herbal teas to help relieve the side effects ofbreast cancer treatment," but doesn't give any specifics, insteadsaying to write to the TMC foundation.However, on the next page, hegives a recipe for producing breast milk (is this really what a womanwith breast cancer is longing to know?) consisting of peanuts,soybeans, and pork feet. Later in the book he gives some herbalrecipes and food recommendations. He recommends gentle exercise only(not even brisk walking), and notes that "too much sex will causeliver and kidney Qi deficiencies" or even eye problems, recommendingrestricting sex to once or twice a month if you're undergoingchemotherapy or radiation. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Life Changing
    I read this book because someone gave it to my mother while she was undergoing chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer. It changed my life. It is really not limited to breast cancer, it teaches women's health in general. There are lists of everyday foods in the back of the book as well as receipes that have really helped my physical symptoms. I would recommend it to ALL women.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Empowering
    This book gave me information which would improve my breast care, and not only that by doing the exercises daily it would and has improved my energy.I recommend this book to ALL women.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Helpful information and encouragement toward lifestyle changes
    This book gives the reader a sense that they can be in charge of their body and how disease effects them. It gives some commons sense and not so common sense ideas of how to take care of yourself when dealing with cancer. I would recommend it as an alternative therapy resource and guide to making positive changes.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Traditional Chinese Medicine: A Woman's Guide to Healing fro
    Dr. Nan Lu, extensively trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), founded and developed The Breast Cancer Prevention Project.He is also a founding director of the Traditional Chinese Medicine World Foundation, Inc., and is involved in SHARE, a self-help organization for women with breast and ovarian cancer.He is also a Qigong master and martial arts champion.
    In Traditional Chinese Medicine: A Woman's Guide to Healing from Breast Cancer, Dr. Lu describes how ancient TCM techniques can help prevent, treat, and aid recovery from breast cancer.He emphasizes throughout the book that "TCM is dedicated to helping the individual treat the source and not the symptoms of his or her problem."
    Dr. Lu presents lots of general information about TCM, natural laws, and Qi, repeating that "everything has a connection and everything has an effect on every other thing."He then applies those principles specifically to breast cancer. He says that "headaches, stomachaches, PMS, or menstrual irregularities. . .are not normal conditions for a healthy body."He regards them as symptoms that should be heeded, to prevent future difficulties.
    TCM can be used in many simple ways.For example, doing a monthly breast exam is a source of stress for many women, because it focuses their thoughts on having breast cancer.Dr. Lu recommends "telling yourself instead, that wherever you touch, you are sending in healing energy to protect that location so that you will never have breast cancer."He includes many other ways to conserve, increase, and use the natural healing energy each human possesses.
    The healing information is presented in a way that allows each woman to customizethe techniques to fit her own needs.All the techniques are compatible with modern medicine and may be used in conjunction with other treatments.
    Dr. Lu says that"many of the self-healing techniques I've talked about can help keep your organs working in harmony."Bodies that are in harmony and balanced do not suffer from physical problems, including cancer.
    The Woman's Guide to Healing from Breast Cancer is a valuable reference for everyone, regardless of age, sex, or current physical condition.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Get to the root cause of breast cancer
    I had breast cancer on the same breast twice, in 1983 and again in 3/2001. I want to find the root cause as I do not want it to happen again. I find the book easy to read and understand. I will start the Wu Ming Meridian Therapy which seems easy to do. I will also start to take the healing food and herb listed in the book. Thank you Dr. Lu for helping me to heal. If I had a book like this in 1983, I probably would not have breast cancer again in March 2001. I have been recommending this book to other breast cancer survivers at my support group. ... Read more

    Yoga and Breast Cancer is a practical, how-to guide to using yoga to manage stress, relieve pain, and gain the strength necessary to make it through this illness.

More than simply an exercise primer, the book is a deeply soothing guide to moving meditation and physical activity, giving readers a safe way to rebuild strength, stamina, and flexibility both during and following cancer treatments. Intended to support women from the critical phases of their disease to times of secondary prevention and rehabilitation, Yoga and Breast Cancer helps them improve awareness of their body, thoughts, and feelings, ultimately guiding them towards a healthier life.

    4-0 out of 5 stars be aware of your body &take charge of your mental health
    Here's a no frills approach to health and healing that would be useful for not only breast cancer patients but for anyone recovering from disease that requires a gentle program of discipline and encouragement. The authors, Ingrid Kollack and Isabell Utz Billing took great care to communicate their message: be aware of your body; take charge of your mental well-being.

    Yoga is a rich and elaborate art that has positive influences on mobility, flexibility and overall physical fitness of women undergoing treatment for breast cancer. The practice helps women relax and reduce stress.

    I teach yoga and found this book very practical and straightforward.The photos are black and white--not glossy airbrushed girls. The instructions are detailed.I would recommend asking a companion to read the instructions out loud while you follow the instructions, or record your own voice and playback the instructions so that you reap the full benefit of the details.

    Book includes a brief overview of the history of yoga and explanation of diffferent styles of yoga, lots of basics, supine poses ( a good supportive place to begin recovery poses) , breathing exercises, eye exercises and special attention exercises for back and shoulders.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A must have for any person with breast cancer
    I loved this book!I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 36 and this book saved me from a horrible depression.The stories of others in my same situation was so comforting.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Want to know how the women who've had it feel?
    I purchased this book, along with four others, because I am writing a novel in which my character learns that she has breast cancer.I really wanted to know what she would be going through, and not just the medical side of it, but the emotional, the physical, the sexual and the psychological.It's all here and it comes directly from the women who experienced it.This is really a gem.I do not have breast cancer, thankfully, and I really hope I never have to endure these things that I've read about, however these women really shine in their honesty and their courage.I was shocked to learn how much they have to go through.They don't tell us these things.I had no idea that chemotherapy caused premature menopause.I knew it caused nausea, fatigue and hair loss but all of the other multitudes of difficulty, I just had no idea.Regardless if you have cancer or not, this book is something all women should read.I highly recommend it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Like a support group, only BETTER!
    Reading I Am Not My Breast Cancer is like attending a support group for women with breast cancer, only better.Instead of hearing the experiences of one or a few women, the reader shares the cancer journey with hundreds of women.The 800 women who participated in the original project from which the book is drawn are from all across the United States and from several other countries as well.They shared their feelings and experiences with openness and honesty.They laughed and cried together, gave each other advice, and bonded with each other.

    Ruth Peltason took those many and varied threads and wove them lovingly into this book.I Am Not My Breast Cancer is not a medical resource, it is a practical resource.It is not the story of one woman's breast cancer, it is the distillation of hundreds of women's experiences with breast cancer--young women, women in midlife, older women, women with early stage disease and women with metastatic disease.Ms. Peltason, herself a two time breast cancer survivor, treats each woman's experience with dignity and respect.

    Any woman touched by breast cancer will find herself in the pages of this book, and it will help those around her understand a little better what she may be going through.Cancer centers and doctors' offices should be sure this volume is added to their libraries--it fills a void and meets a need like no other book out there.As a breast cancer survivor, I say, "Thank you, Ms. Peltason, for writing I Am Not My Breast Cancer!"

    5-0 out of 5 stars Give this to anyone affected by breast cancer.
    As a man whose wife is undergoing chemotherapy, I wanted to read this book for several reasons. I wanted as much understanding as possible about the emotional aspects for all involved, I wanted to see how well I was doing as the significant other and I wanted to Understand what I might be missing/overlooking about the whole process.
    This book did an incredible job answering all three questions. The distillation of wisdom, anger, hope and total honesty of the 800 women involved in the creation of this book is amazing. The brief, but succinct comments, collected on such a diverse arrangements of topics will not only provide helpful paths for those undergoing treatment, but also for ANY family member, friend or co-worker sincerely interested in understanding and supporting the individual battling the disease of breast cancer.
    This book should be in every public and health science library as it will do for the soul and spirit what other books cannot.

    5-0 out of 5 stars These ladies really get it!
    This book should-WILL become a key resource for any woman (or man) who has recently been diagnosed with Breast cancer. It will also bring those who have lived with the disease in remission or hence eradicated, with a sense of comraderie that you rarely glimpse once you are "years out", as we say in the world of survivors. Anyone reading this collection of online dialogs will be able to relate to what is being said. Those who have "been there" will smile, laugh, cry and nod in agreement while reading through the hundreds of passages that have been included in this rich, compassionate and inspirational book. The author Ruth Peltason has also added her own notations peppered throughout, to share some of her own experience as a 2 time Breast Cancer survivor. These women GET IT! I believe this book will also aid those who have stood by watching helplessly as someone they love is effected by this horrendous disease. It allows others to see and feel what these women really went through. Buy this book for a friend, a co-worker, a loved one, or to share with a medical professional. The wisdom, the humor, the warmth that these women have shared online and now in book form is a personal journey that touches the soul. Highly Recommneded! ... Read more

    Product Description

    Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book has long been the bible for the newly diagnosed. In this completely revised fifth edition, it also becomes a guide for those at risk of getting breast cancer, survivors interested in the consequences of their treatment, and anyone who wants to understand the new research about how the local environment influences the manifestations and treatments of many different kinds of breast cancer. Major advances being made in genetic research today mean that prevention and treatment can work not only to get rid of mutated cells (through chemo or surgery), but also to change the environment around the cells (through hormone therapy, exercise, and stress reduction). Among other promising developments discussed are advances in imaging, recognition of breast density as a risk factor, and a section focused on “personalized medicine” to help determine what kind of cancer you have and how best to treat it.

    Any woman facing a diagnosis, decisions about treatment, or concerns about prevention will find in Dr. Love’s book the information, guidance, and reassurance she needs.

    Amazon.com Review
    Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book has been considered thebible of breast-care books since it appeared in 1990. In 1995, Lovecompletely updated the book in a 600-page second edition, includingnew biopsy and screening methods, implants, the pros and cons ofhormone therapy, new discoveries in breast-cancer treatment, and manyother topics. Every chapter has been rewritten, with the exception ofthe anatomy chapter ("The breast, I'm glad to report, is still locatedon the chest!"). Love presents copious medical information in asimple, welcoming style, and plentiful illustrations make theinformation even clearer. About two-thirds of the book deals withbreast cancer: risk factors, prevention, screening, diagnosis,staging, emotions, treatment options, surgery, alternative treatments,clinical trials, and more. But the book isn't just about breastcancer. It's also about breast development, physiology, bras, nursing,sexuality--if it has to do with breasts, Love discusses it. Love alsodebunks breast myths: underwire bras do not cause cancer, neither dobruises or injuries; "fibrocystic disease" isn't really a disease. Thebook includes a wealth of resources: books, treatment centers, andorganizations (but no Web sites--perhaps in the thirdedition?). --Joan Price ... Read more

    The bible of breast cancer book.Dr. Love explains everything you would want or need to know about breast cancer, for those who are facing this life altering situation.She has the latest information from the most recent reseach.So much comes out new everyday that she will for sure need to make a 6th and 7th edition in a few years.It is a very good reference and she explains everything so anyone could understand.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Probably One of the Most Accessible Books
    My only disappointment with this book is that I think the 5th edition is coming out soon and I couldn't wait for it.There is a lot of easily understood information in this book and a lot of great philosophy underneath the content.As a nurse and a woman recently diagnosed with breast cancer, I have to say that there are many significant decisions that need to be made.Being a partner with your physicians in making these decisions is essential - and taking one decision at a time is critical to staying sane through the process.With links to her websites and other resources, this book is a great resource!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Knowledge is your ally
    This book is a wealth of information. No matter what your own situation, you need to know as much as possible about all the types and stages of breast cancer, in order to make informed decisions, and to make the entire experience less scary.

    Product Description

    Today, more breast cancer treatment options are available than ever before. But how can you determine the course of action that is right for YOU?

    Breast Cancer: Beyond Convention is the only single resource that lays out all of the traditional and alternative approaches available today. Assembling a "dream team" of breast cancer experts, the editors of this truly groundbreaking guide encourage readers to work with their practitioners as they consider a variety of approaches, all explained in clear, nontechnical language. Readers will discover

  • how to find the right caregiver and how to best complement conventional medical treatment with alternative medicine
  • how to be "healed" without necessarily being "cured"
  • how to incorporate traditional Chinese medicine -- including herbs, qigong, and acupuncture
  • the right diet to choose, no matter the form of treatment; the importance of soy products; plus fifteen delicious recipes to sample
  • the best vitamins, minerals, and natural foods, and the specific benefits -- and possible dangers -- of each
  • the merits of spiritual treatments, from meditation and directed prayer to the powerful mystery of the "will to live."

    The guide features an encyclopedic appendix of websites, and lists of national support organizations, care centers, recommended audiotapes, CDs, and books -- making this the single source to help patients take control of their treatment, assuage their fears, and get them on the road to healing.

    A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center Complementary and Alternative Medicine Program at the University of California, San FranciscoAmazon.com Review
    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 Lightner ... Read more

    I bought this book for a friend who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I skimmed through the book before handing it over to her and found it very interesting and inforative. She found that it was well written. Delivery was faster than I expected and the book was in great shape.

    5-0 out of 5 stars THE book to start with on Breast Cancer
    This book has helped so many people I know when they found out that they or someone they loved had breast cancer.
    Since this book has come out, Dr. Mary Tagliaferri and Isaac Cohen have been doing impressive work at Bionovo (http://www.bionovo.com) to discover and develop new drugs for cancer and women's health. I have heard that they will be publishing a book about menopause that uses the same format as this book soon. What a useful book!

    5-0 out of 5 stars An invaluable guide for BREAST HEALTH as well as cancer
    After my diagnosis, I waded through shelves of library books on alternative health/breast cancer/healing options in order to find some of the information in this succinct literate volume.This anthology by complementary and alternative medical experts addresses both scientific and spiritual approaches for living with breast cancer. A road map to help with diagnosis, surgery, and after care . Excellent website directory.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Reading this book is like having a wise friend by your side
    This is a book is about integrative medicine, the emerging field of medicine that attempts to integrate the best therapies from both Western medicine and from non-conventional practices.

    As Dr. Dean Ornish points out in his forword, the authors of the fifteen books chapters are striving to build bridges between the two worlds.They have all made profound contributions of their own to the medical community, and the expertise they share in this book may help provide patients with new hope and new choices. There is a great richness of material here, covering many perspectives:

    Mainstream physicians such as famed breast cancer experts Susan Love and Debu Tripathy share their experiences and how they came to understand that they had to open their minds and look beyond the traditional boundaries of medicine. Bestselling authors Rachel Naomi Remen, John Kabat Zinn and Michael Lerner share their experiences with the mysterious powers of the mind and heart in the healing process. The role of diet is addressed in chapters by lead editor Mary Tagliaferri and by Larry Kushi. Chinese Medicine, Herbs, Supplements and other natural products are treated in several chapters. Controversial subjects such as distant healing are being explored, and the role of support groups in the well-being of cancer patients is analyzed.There is a portrait of a clinic that has become "a healing place for low-income women", and even tips on how to evaluate health information on the internet.

    No one book can cover all the possible alternative and complementary therapies that are being used by breast cancer patients. But one would hope that these thoughtful essays will inspire many more physicians and alternative medicine practitioners to build bridges between their worlds and explore the possibilities of collaboration with open minds and hearts. ...

    Product Description
    An irreverent, funny, compassionate look at what having breast cancer means—and what it doesn’t.

    From the pink ribbons to the websites that sell related accessories and stuffed animals, breast cancer has morphed from a disease to an experience. And at every step of the way, society tells women that this experience can teach them profound lessons and maybe even give them a peek at the meaning of life.

    But what if it doesn’t?

    Before Shelley Lewis got breast cancer she was a smart, edgy network producer. After the long month of treatment ended, she was still a smart, edgy network producer. The cancer was gone but in its place there was no epiphany, no new perspective on life. Lewis found that for herself and other women, breast cancer was many things, but it was not necessarily an opportunity for self-improvement. It didn’t teach them lessons, but surviving it did draw on hard-won life lessons they’d already learned.

    A wonderful interweaving of the author’s personal story, interviews with breast cancer survivors, and a sharp-eyed journalist’s look at the breast cancer “community,” this book is full of unconventional wisdom, unexpected advice, and hilarious observations about life inside the pink bubble. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Right on the mark!
    Having just gone through this myself, I loved finding someone who gets it!Being strong for everyone else, I could read and let down my guard, crying and laughing and reading the things about people's comments that I wouldn't say out loud!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Wasn't as good as I thought it would be
    While I was reading this book, I noticed that I felt more down about having breast cancer than I did before I started reading it. I actually had to stop reading it because it was upsetting me so much. I am a thick skinned person but I found this book to be more on the negative side than on the helpful side. The author is a bit harsh and might scare anyone who has been recently diagnosed or going through treatment.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Just average
    After reading the book, definitely felt more down than before.Author's cynicism and harsh judgment of others was not what I expected.Would not recommend the book for those currently undergoing breast cancer treatment.However, there are one or two points she makes regarding the feelings of those diagnosed with breast cancer that I think are universal and stated in a way that the group can identify with.All in all, I think the author came across as belittling of those who do seek to learn some lessons while going through breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed In This Book
    I was truly disappointed in this book. The author was full of foul language, whining and other peoples advice. I found no value in the book at all especially being a newly diagnosed cancer patient.
    Having cancer is like being pregnant everybody has a different experience. I am glad that I bought this book used and not new. What a waste of money!
    What the author did not learn was dignity and self respect. What I have discovered about having breast cancer is you have to have God in your life first and foremost.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best book about surviving on your own terms
    A good book tells you what to do...a GREAT book gets you to decide what to do for yourself...this is a great book for survivors of breast cancer. Great if you're just going though it, or finished your treatment. It empowers the reader to enjoy life and stresses there is no scientific evidence that says your attitude impacts on the outcome of treatment...so embrace your inner bitch if you're into it...or use that sense of humor that works...don't let others dictate what to do about anything...you get to write the rules since it's you're life!!!!! Loved it! ... Read more

    dr. braddock was able to utilize her own experiences of battling (and surviving!) this disease to help others in a similar situation. she saw a need for a simple, easy to understand text to inform and inspire both those living with breast cancer and their loved ones. as a woman (and as her daughter) i am so proud to see someone turning her own life experience into such a positive and constructive resource.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I trusted her with my LIFE!!
    I was operated on my Dr. Sally Knox, the author of this book.She is incredibly capable and highly rated in this area.She performed a surgical biopsy on my breast after a suspicious mammogram.I met with her in her office before the surgery and then of course at the hospital before, during and after the surgery.This woman is a brilliant surgeon and someone that is caring and knowledgeable about all facets of breast cancer and breast care.This book is a great addition to your library and her information can be relied on in my opinion.The previous reviewer's rating seemed to be based on her purchase of this book outside of the amazon website and should not be taken as a commentary on the quality of this book and the information contained therein.Dr. Knox is a caring and supportive physician/surgeon.You can't go wrong buying this book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and prophetic
    I bought this book when it first came out in 1993, and everything journalist Carol Ann Rinzler said then has now become accepted by the top medical researchers.Estrogen (especially when combined with progestin) DOES cause breast cancer, and the supposed benefits of estrogens for preventing heart disease are now being hotly debated.The HERS study (the first big randomized controlled trial on women with heart disease)actually found women had more heart attacks during the first year than women not on HRT. If you still have any doubt that estrogen causes breast cancer, READ THIS BOOK.Only when we're fully informed can women make clear-headed decisions about whether or not to take estrogen drugs for the rest of our lives.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good case re estrogen causing increase in breast cancer
    An good example of, I have no conflict of interest, journalism. Ms. Rinzler has done her homework. She makes a sound case for the idea that the exponential increase in Breast Cancer is mostly the result of the massive introduction of estrogen into women's lives. Birth Control Pills, Hormone Replacement Therapy, DES and more, are all clearly implicated. Why then do they continue to be sold, with ever increasing favor? Why is this being denied/ignored? Why is this just shuffled off as a factor to consider? Why has this book received so little attention? Women should read, study and meditate on this book. Take it to heart. Ask yourself these questions. A fine example of excellent journalism, well written, staight foward and easy to read ... Read more

    I am very pleased with this book.I had a double mastectomy.Another cancer survivor recommended this book. Iborrowed it from the library only to find I WANTED MY OWN COPY.It's specific stretches have helped me to recover gently but fast.The exercises; encouragement; and practical ideas; does make it a process of "thriving". Many pictures. Well worth the price.

    This book was highly recomended, and since I am having my last surgery for Breast Cancer recovery I found that this book had many of the things that I will need to recover from this surgery. Very well rounded book for life after all the surgeries and treatments.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I am the Author
    This book also addresses exercises and information for those with Lymphedema.However when you go to Google, Yahoo.com or any search engine.......this book does not come up when you type in Lymphedema. It does come up for a lot of other needs like cancer, exercise, health, disease, fitness, etc which is also what the book has in the way of exercise and information, but perhaps people with Lymphedema are missing out by not including the connection to Lymphedema as well.

    Thank you for your time.

    Foods, exercises, and attitudes to keep your breasts healthy. Supportive complimentary medicines to ease side-effects of surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, or tamoxifen. Foreword by Christiane Northrup, M.D.Amazon.com Review
    Designed to be a resource for both women who want to maintainbreast health and those who've been diagnosed with breast cancer,Breast Cancer? Breast Health! The Wise Woman Way draws on"women's wisdom," or the inner knowledge often ignored by modernmedicine, as a powerful tool for healing. Author Susun Weed proposesan anticancer lifestyle, and, if cancer does enter the picture, asix-step plan for healing (sleep is at zero, or "Do Nothing"; surgeryis number six, which she terms "Break and Enter"), with variouscomplementary healing techniques included throughout.

    Weed iscareful to point out that supplements and herbs can hurt as much asthey can help, and she lists several alternative-medicine techniquesthat should be avoided no matter what. The steps she doesrecommend--from herbal oils for breast massage to help detect lumpsearly to the herbs milk thistle, dandelion, and burdock for women withliver damage from tamoxifen--are explained clearly, sometimes withfascinating quotes from centuries-old books on healing.

    Weed willdraw ire from some readers for recommending that mammograms beavoided. She says they tend to squeeze cancer cells into thebloodstream and can't detect cancer until it's metastatic, which arereasons enough to not have them, and adds that women would be betteroff by making her suggested anticancer lifestyle changes, paying moreattention to their breasts, and performing regular self-exams.

    Thewarnings about the dangers of electromagnetic fields, exposure toestrogen, and organochlorides from plastics may frighten some, butWeed means to enlighten and empower. She dedicates the book toenvironmentalist and Silent Spring authorRachel Carson and poet Audre Lorde, who both died of breast cancer.Extensive herbal resources, a solid glossary, and a thorough index areincluded. ...

    I gave my original copy to someone and had to reorder when I recently was re-diagnosed.This book provides excellent information and advice to help you negotiate between alternative and conventional treatments for cancer.It gives one a sense of peace and control

    5-0 out of 5 stars Every woman (and a few doctors) needs to read this book
    I am a breast cancer survivor and wish I had found this book a couple of years ago.It is very empowering to read and and encourages women to take control of their own health and wellness. Once you get in the medical system, it's easy to feel victimized and over your head. Medical people try to scare you into treatments and drugs that may not be in your best interest.Ladies you need to educate yourself and learn how to care for and nourish your own body.This will go a long way in keeping us all out of harm's way within the medical establishment.Susun Weed stresses the importance of nutrition and self-care as a means to staying well, as well as not being afraid of your own body. (Many of us are, I think).This is a great resource for any woman, especially those with breast cancer - or who think they might get it -- and that could be virtually everyone!Recommend very highly.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Susun Weed rocks
    I really enjoy Susun Weed's books and this was no exception. I find her style very down to earth and full of practical advice. However, I would not recommend this book to people who believe everything their allopathic doctor tells them.

    As a breast patient dealing with stage 4 metastic cancer, I have been reading (at least 50 books) and researching on-line, both conventional and alternative medicine, for 3 and a half years.

    Product Description
    Written by two renowned authorities who specialize in the treatment of breast cancer, a surgeon and an oncologist, this lucid step-by-step guide has established itself as the indispensable book women need to make informed decisions about the care that is right for them.

    Breast cancer will strike one out of every eight women in the United States. Because there have been many important changes in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer in the last few years, this fully revised Third Edition contains information on the latest developments in the field, including:

    • new diagnostic procedures
    • changes in the treatment of in situ cancer
    • improved surgical techniques
    • gene testing
    • sequencing radiation and chemotherapy
    • HER-2Neu (Herceptin)
    • tamoxifen for prevention
    • bone marrow and stem cell transplants
    • and moreAmazon.com Review
    Oncologist Hirshaut and surgeon Pressman form a specializedteam of renowned authority on the treatment of breast cancer. Theirbook--a winner of The American Medical Writers Association's RoseKushner Award--serves as "an additional expert by your side,"providing a backstage look at the essence of breast cancer. Writtenfor women diagnosed with breast cancer or concerned about thepossibility of developing it, the guide is separated into fourinformative yet nonthreatening sections: "From Suspicion toDiagnosis," "Treatment," "After the Treatment," and "Life AfterCancer."

    The authors clarify terminology and treatment jargonthat's often lost on the layperson. For instance, fibroadenomas aredescribed as "an orderly growth of cells, confined to the breast, thatresults in benign, movable, and rounded lumps." The TNM system ofstaging is clarified as this: "the conditions Tumor, lymph Nodes andMetastasis are taken into account to determine the stage at which thecancer has been found; staging is a vital tool in measuring risk andchoosing treatment."

    Descriptions and illustrations help explainpresurgical procedures, again providing an insider's knowledge intowhat to expect beyond what is usually provided by a regularphysician. Additionally, in a chapter dedicated solely to prevention,the doctors explore factors that may be related to the disease's onsetsuch as heredity, race, diet, vitamins and minerals, alcohol,caffeine, smoking, radiation exposure and other environmental causes,as well as hormones, birth control pills, and hormone replacementtherapy.

    The guide concludes with a NABCO (National Alliance ofBreast Cancer Organizations) resource list including numerous officesand phone numbers in each state. Want to know more about breast cancerdiagnosis and treatment?This guide may very well serve as the nextbest thing to an on-call physician, providing clear explanations toquestions--whether general or specific--via a detailed index and 17well-organized chapters. --Cate Bick ...

    Betty Rollin's quote on the cover of this book sums it up: "Here are the facts -- clear, unterrifying, and important."I purchased this book for myself and my mother when she was diagnosed with breast cancer.I wanted us both to be able to read about her disease and learn more about what was going to happen to her without being frightened by statistics and other people's case histories.We have both benefitted from this book because it has helped us to understand the whirlwind of activity that followed her diagnosis.The book is not a comprehensive medical reference; there are other books that do a better job of going into detail (like Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book).But as a readable "guidebook" or handbook to help patients and their families understand the steps involved in the treatment of breast cancer, this book is a very good investment.

    4-0 out of 5 stars The help you need when you need it most!
    This book is a systematic presentation of the medical process a breast cancer patient will go through and the significance of each step.Each issue, test and result is explained.The authors believe that a patientshould be an active decisionmaker and advocate of her own interests, andthe book is intended to give her the tools to understand and make informedchoices about her treatment options and the consequences.This is aterrific overview of the situation, which will make net research much moreproductive.Clearly written.There is a resources section in the back. ...

    Your Breast Cancer Treatment Handbook is the only book designed to be given to patients by their health care provider as a comprehensive guide to understanding treatment options and self-care. No treatment advice is given, allowing the treatment team to offer final recommendations. Instead, the patient is guided through the experience with graphically illustrated explanations of surgical options, treatments and self-care. A concise glossary empowers her to understand the language and participate in discussion about her care. Sixteen tear-out worksheets serve as a tutor for information collection. Reasuring remarks appearing throughout the book from survivors show that others have faced and met the challenge of breast cancer.

    This was recommended by others and given to a cancer-victim as a gift.I have never read it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Breast Cancer Handbook a must
    A great guide to walk you through all aspects of breast cancer. I've given it to several friends who have been through all stages and kinds of breast cancer and each of them say it has been the most helpful resource for all their questions. They continue to use it and refer to it.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Your Breast Cancer Treatment Handbook
    I think the book is very comprehensive and answered some of my questions BUT I also felt that reading it just after I was diagnosed was extremely scary.

    In other words, I felt there was just too much information for me,and in some areas, too technical.I will, however, donate this book to our local hospital mammograph department as I feel they can use it well.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Some cancers disappear untreated, study finds
    There are many people who cure (themselves) from cancer (and other diseases, for that matter). A few things they all seem to have in common:
    They take responsibility for their health/sickness away from doctors or anyone else.
    They get rid of negative feelings (like anger, grudge, helplessness and, most of all, by doing this, FEAR). In other words, they CHANGE their lifestyle (most of the time they also take control of what they eat - which is where this book comes in handy).
    But most important (togheter with finding peace of mind):

    They give their body TIME TO HEAL ITSELF!

    Cancer disappears if not discovered (atleast 22% of all breast cancer, for instance):


    Also, take a look at 'German New Medicine' (google for it).

    Please people, don't believe everything your good doctor says, look it up
    for yourself (but don't get put off by biased articles, before you even start).

    May God bless you all.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I wish I was given this book immediately upon my diagnosis
    I was diagnosed with breast cancer and understandably, shuffled off very quickly from doctor to testing, to surgery, with more testing and more doctors. Because our medical system is segmented and not designed to treat the person as a whole, there was lots of room for misinformation and lack of information. I don't know if my health care providers assumed other people were telling me how to prepare, or what the process was, or just figured it wasn't their job.

    When you first learn you have cancer, like me, you probably think, "Cancer = Death."This is just not the case any longer. Had I had this book in my possession from day one, my fears would have been quieted and a sense of control and peace would have replaced most of my anxiety and fear. Even the doctors will agree, your emotional health, and outlook will affect your recovery.

    This book does not try to be a comprehensive, "absolutely everything you need to know" in one book. But it does deliver a lot of information for the layperson, and if you're like me, you'll have hundreds of questions. If you can get even one answered by this book, it's worth the price for peace of mind it can bring.

    Some of the things that this book covers that doctors don't pro-actively talk to you about is, the emotional impact to you, how to tell your friends, how to talk to your children about your illness, getting second opinions, what to expect the day of surgery and after, how to understand your pathology reports, the medical explanations of diagnosis, treatments and options, how to deal with health insurance and your employment and more.

    Knowledge is power, and this book is chock full of answers, suggestions, resources that your doctors just won't think to tell you. If you've been diagnosed and feel that you have questions and don't know where to go to get them all answered, this book is an excellent resource and springboard.
