5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for any woman
I really liked The Breast Cancer Prevention and Recovery Diet. It walked me through all the basics of breast cancer, how it develops, what the risks are, what the different types are, how to recognize different symptoms, what to expect at the doctor, and what the different treatment options are. Then it explained how to minimize your risk of developing breast cancer or improving your chances of recovery through nutrition. Suzannah explained which foods to avoid and which foods to include. She suggested making gradual changes that seem really do-able. She includes easy, appealing recepies and lots of menu ideas. Everything is backed up with a lot of research, but the book is easy-to-understand and speaks on a very personal level. The Breast Cancer Prevention and Recovery Diet reminded me of Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book, which I really liked also. I think this is a great book for any woman interested in better health. ...

It makes sense I have read about these cures here and there and now they are all listed in one easy to find, easy to read book. I have sent to a friend with cancer and she is forever grateful. I also recommended ordering a copy to a doctor friend.

1-0 out of 5 stars welcome to the club
This diet is not scientific, not really Japanese.Michio Kushi makes you put away meat, he should do the same with cigarettes.My mom read this book, spent [money] on personal visits, applied the diet (depriving herself of vitamins, protein), waited 6 month to see effects (while not seing the doctor), talked to a "cured" patient from Chicago (phoned her from Boston).Where is she now?Well, heaven I hope, but surely not among the living.If you are sick, see the doctor, and if you prefer to die with all your organs, at least buy something to spend your time well, and not this useless, lying book, the proceedings of which will perhaps be used in advertising this harmful "diet".

1-0 out of 5 stars A bit of honesty, please...
Sadly, both Michio Kushi's wife and one daughter have died of cancer. Being that they were Japanese, the healthiest and longest lived people in the world, this doesn't really speak well for the diet.

However, it does seem that macrobiotics, when taken with common sense, have been known to help cancer patients, some say to the extent of "curing" them. It's easy to find examples to prove everything and the contrary (and no one mentions the ones that have died of the various deficiencies that easily befall macrobiotics followers).

Follow your own instincts... and keep in touch with a trusted doctor!

5-0 out of 5 stars Read it if you have cancer.
Eighteen years ago I began the macrobiotic diet and lifestyle after attending a "Diet and Cancer" seminar and having a consultation with Michio Kushi.It was 9 months after I found a lump in my breast.Ialso did a lot of work on myself in order to heal but the diet was/iscrucial as well. I am glad I eat that way, even now! I had the lumps takenout but no radiation or chemotherapy. ... Read more

Product Description
If you think conventional treatments cure cancer... If you think diet cannot cure cancer... Think again!The BookThe first part of the book delves into the details behind the failure of conventional treatments and provides a shocking portrait of just how unsuccessful current treatments really are. This will provide invaluable guidance to cancer patients struggling with treatment decisions. Unfortunately, this information is not available from any hospital or cancer organization, yet it comes from the finest research available today.The second part of the book provides an explanation of how cancer can, in fact, be reversed naturally through diet and lifestyle changes.  Finally, the book explains how the RAVE Diet has been tailored and optimized to fit the needs of cancer patients in order to get the maximum nutritional bang for the buck. It is a how-to-book with practical tips and over 200 recipes so you can easily make the RAVE Diet your everyday diet.The book is not only easy to read, but entertaining and inspirational. It may, in fact, be one of the most important books you'll ever read. The DVDPart 1 Curing Cancer, deals with the failings of conventional cancer treatments and shows how conventional medicine wildly - and deceptively - exaggerates the benefits of treatments, while minimizing the risks. It will provide you with the information you need to accurately assess the risks and benefits of any treatment and speak intelligently to your doctor about such treatments. Part 2 Healing Cancer, shows how cancer can be successfully healed with dietary treatments and natural supplementation. It explains common misconceptions about cancer, shows how diets designed to fight cancer are more successful than conventional treatments, discusses startling cancer research findings with T. Colin Campbell (The China Study) and has interviews with people who have reversed cancers using diet. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Raving about the RAVE DIET
I purchased this item because I'm trying to avoid cancer for both my husband and I. I also had both parents die due to colon cancer(Mom) and pacreatic cancer(Dad). They both had the worst diet habits. I was vegetarian and now I've gone towards a mostly raw/vegan diet. Juicing has also become a part of my life since purchasing this book/video. The facts about avoiding mammograms totally opened up my eyes. The information provided is mind blowing. How can the medical community overlook these facts that are presented here by the author? The book is an easy read. I find myself constantly going over the facts in the book so I can I tell my family and friends. One of the best purchases I've made.

5-0 out of 5 stars The World NEEDS This Information!
Upon watching the DVD I created a list of family and friends who are dealing with different types of chronic diseases, from cancer to diabetes, from heart disease to fibromyalgia who need to have this information to save their lives and restore quality to their lives!

The book picks up right where the DVD leaves off. WOW! The Politics of Cancer and the lies and deception about cancer are amazing. We have the cure for cancer, but the truth is being suppressed.

It's time to take our health and well being into our own hands and take our health care system back from corporate America and put a stop to the millions who are suffering from the ineffective cancer treatments of surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy!

This material will cause a paradigm shift in your thinking and the way you have seen the world of cancer treatment and chronic disease treatment. While there are many well meaning physicians, most have been deceived by the allopathic industrial machine and the pharmaceutical industry and we the people are the ones who are suffering and paying for it.

Bring back the holistic practitioners, bring back the naturalists, and bring back the healers!

This could well be the MOST IMPORTANT documentary you will watch in the life you have remaining on this planet!

Top notch recommend! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars just OK
What can I say, it is just OK. Alot of things if you aren't experimental on ingredients you won't use this cookbook. I would not buy again.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Ideas
Having been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer and had surgery, I have found this book to contain some exciting and good recipes to support healthy eating as part of the treatment of this disease.The recipes are very tasty plus nutritious.The only hang-up is that I live in a rural town where some of the foods and ingredients used in the recipes are hard to find, so I have to drive some distance to get them.That's some hassal, but the benefits are very worth while.

1-0 out of 5 stars Why I decided against this book
Background: my PSA has doubled in 6 months, but is still under 4.0.I am putting off a 2nd biopsy until I have given dietary changes a chance to kick in.

{The cover of the book has a picture of tomatoes.I believe Lycopene to be over-hyped at present, since there are no studies that show supplementation lowering PSA levels.}

Mr. Guler's comments worried me.The meat issue is really a fat issue (I wonder if the surge in Atkins adherents will lead to a surge in prostate cancer).The fat issue, as I understand it, is (a) the quantity of fat and (b) an imbalance between omega-3 & omega-6 fats.

Im told that grass-fed beef is lower in fat & has a one-to-one ratio, whereas corn-fattened beef has very little omega-3.So beef isn't entirely out of the question.

Fish can be a problem.Farmed salmon is high in fat, but because of the feed, it contains little or no omega-3.

My new diet has more fish (not farmed) than meat.Complex carbs.Vegetables such as broccoli & peppers, but not potatoes.No dessert.No dairy.Zone diet portions.Any general purpose cookbook will provide sufficient recipes.

2-0 out of 5 stars What is left out.
The book opens with information regarding foods to be avoided that feed prostate cancer along with a endorsement by a medical doctor.The book does not define what is "meat" which is a food that the book states should be avoided.It also avoids the categories of seafood and moderate alcohol use such as wine with dinner.I wrote the co-authors requesting a clarification of the above items.Since they refused to answer my inquiry, I consider the book just another vegetarian cookbook with a misleading or incomplete title.

4-0 out of 5 stars Hope And A Fun Approach To Food Preparation
It makes sense that a proper diet can have an impact on the prevention and treatment of prostate cancer. I have some doubt, however, about the ability of certain foods to destroy prostate cancer cells as claimed on the dust jacket. Fighting prostate cancer is a grim business and this book will help PC survivors and their loving spouses because it provides hope and a fun approach to food preparation. I am presently using the book more for its ideas and inspiration instead oftrying to precisely follow each recipe. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful resource for dogs with cancer
I love my dogs and I try to stay up to date on nutrition and thought I was feeding them the best diet I could. I was wrong!

This quick read shattered a lot of beliefs I had and has totally changed what I am feeding my dog. Having dealt with dog cancer before, this time I am prepared and am following Dr. Dressler's recipe all the way. It is pretty simple actually, and I can tell you my dog likes it a lot-- he is eating way more--and way better than before. This book is a fast read-- only took me about 2 hours to read (and I took lots of notes). Highly recommended!

The book I recieved was in perfert condition. I've already tried a couple of recipes, which I enjoyed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful
This is a GREAT book.It would be the most helpful for a cancer patient at the beginning of treatment, as it gives very helpful tips, advice, and things to be prepared for during chemo or radiation. I didn't get this book until after six months of chemo and had to learn about much of the book's recommendations on my own. Even so the recipes are very helpful, mostly healthy and easy, and divided into specific areas of treatment effects. I recommend this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Generally good advice
I am a Board Certified Internist who specializes in Weight Management.This book has good general advice about reducing cancer risk using a vegan diet.Although some people may not be "ready" to adopt a vegan diet, anything close to it would be helpful, especially if one is eating the typical cancer "enhancing" diet of many Americans!My advice to my patients is to reduce calorie-dense processed foods and substitute whole, real foods in or close to their natural state.This works for weight loss and for improving most other chronic medical conditions, including cancer!

4-0 out of 5 stars helpful, needs some updating
This book includes lots of useful information on the benefits of vegetables and other foods in preventing cancer. They are pro vegetarianism, veganism really, to an extent that I think is excessive, even though I agree with most of what they say. However, they need to take a deeper look at the role of carbohydrates and fat in health, given recent research, in my opinion. They are very down on meat, with good reason, but lump all kinds of meat together, including fish and I believe a more sophisticated treatment of this topic is warranted. Still, I have a great deal of faith in most of their recommendations and just bought twice as many vegetable and fruit products as I normally do.

Product Description
The story of Mina Dobic and her family is a modern odyssey. Her journey to health and wholeness weaves together many of the transcendent themes of the last half-century; the struggle between communism and a free society, the conflict between conventional medicine and holistic health, and the centrifugal forces pulling apart the modern family and the unifying thread that holds it together.

Along the way, Mina passed from cancer victim to cancer survivor, from patient to healer, from student to teacher. Born and having lived in former Yugoslavia for over 40 years, today she is one of the leading macrobiotic cooks and counselors on the West Coast of the USA, inspiring many others with her wisdom, love and compassion.

Thanks to the Dobics and many other families around the world, macrobiotics is beginning to enter the mainstream and influence the course of modern society.

Despite notable strides by the medical research community introducing newly developed therapies and medications, every 15 seconds someone is diagnosed with heart disease or cancer. At the turn of the century cancer affected one out of twenty-seven people. By 1950, the rate had leaped to one in eight; and by 1985, official estimates were that one out of three people would develop the disease.

If cancer continues increasing at this rate, by the year 2000, every other person could ultimately develop it. By the year 2020, cancer could strike four out of five people and, soon thereafter, virtually everyone!

This book tells how to recover from cancer and, better yet, how to prevent it through diet and a simple lifestyle. It explains the philosophy of living in balance with nature. It reminds us how we humans, with our emphasis on fixing things and arrogance of improving on nature, have brought ourselves and other species to the verge of extinction.

This book is about something which is missing in this present world. It is about love, about the real purpose of life which is to nurture and celebrate ourselves, other creatures, the earth, and the Universe which gave us life. It gives us hope for humankind and for the world. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous book
Mybeautiful life is a fabulous book. Very powerful, inspirational, and motivating. Mina Dobic is a very powerful healer and has has helped numerous people transition to a macrobiotic lifestyle.

1-0 out of 5 stars all lies, in my opinion
Promoting a diet of organic produce, little refined sugar and whole grains is wonderful; suggesting that such a diet is a CURE for cancer is quack medicine, irresponsible and immoral. Dobic eradicates all developments in science since the Enlightenment and wants readers (many of whom must be desperate cancer patients) to believe that miso soup can destroy a tumor. This isn't 'natural medicine'; this is Orientalism: exoticizing the east to make money in the west. This book is so badly written, one wonders whether the PhD she touts (and touts and touts) is real; the text is mostly unintelligible and occasionally laughable. After reading every page of this book, hoping to learn more about the macrobiotic diet (about which there is MUCH to admire), I understand that the author is neither a scholar nor a healer nor a writer-- just a hotel cook who got very lucky. There are many, many, many better books on cancer, healthy cooking and inspirational/spiritual philosophies. This may be the worst I've ever encountered, if not the worst book I've ever spent real hours of my life reading. How many lives, how many families, has this woman already destroyed with her quackery?

1-0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous, unverifiable claims
None of these methods are scientifically proven or even tested.All we have to go on are the dubious testimonies of people claiming that they cured stage 4 cancer with some seaweed.
I urge anyone who is in a dire health situation to reconsider the advice of charlatans.

5-0 out of 5 stars Life Changing...
Mina Dobic's book, My Beautiful Life, inspired me to visit the Kushi Institue in Becket, Massachusetts, and pursue an IMA degree in Complementary Health Education at Antioch McGregor University in Yellow Springs, Ohio. A high school Human Anatomy and Physiology teacher and currently director of a charter conversion school in Ohio, I believe this book has changed not only my life...but lives of hundreds of my students, friends, and professional peers.
I first read a brief description of the book in a catalog. Intrigued, I ordered it and could not stop reading...underlining..highlighting! Knowing full well that the homeostatis of the body is dependent on the health of each and every cell, Mrs. Dobic's description of her cancer, her fight, her flight to Brookline, Massachusets to consult with Michio Kushi, and her eventual victory over disease made excellent sense. I was overwhelmed with the hope...and the power one must claim to take control of their own health.
I am currently teaching a macrobioitc class and have suggested to all of my students that they must read this inspiring, hope-filled story of a brave, strong Yugoslavian woman who did more than beat the odds...she created an entirely new lifestyle for herself and her family. I would be honored to someday meet Mrs. Dobic...and sample one of her macro pies!
Her inspiring story has caused many of my students to take a long, hard look at what they are feeding their cells...and believe me,they are often just plain shocked! Healthy, wholesome eating is a choice...select whole, organic grains,vegetables, temperate fruits (if you live in Ohio), and drink your organic tea! Slow your life down...sing a song daily...walk barefoot in the grass...stop chasing the dream...and begin living it.Read My Beautiful Life and you will feel empowered to do so!Marcia Balmut Ward, Director - Graham Digital Academy, Graham Local Schools, St. Paris, Ohio

This is a great book on alternative therapy for cancer. Very informative and does more than give theories. It gives clinical proof and many testimonials of it's results. I would highly recommend this book and therapy to anyone seeking better health, not just for those with cancer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gerson Therapy supports self-discipline I need to regain health
I started reading The Gerson Therapy a few months after receiving chemotherapy for breast cancer. In the intervening three years I have pieced together evidence of damage I had not realized I suffered after chemo. I was given the book again as a gift in the last few months, and subsequently bought several more copies to pass along to others. It has been an integral source of information to help me know what to do, and what help I needed in order to overcome not only post-chemo damage, but also to correct several conditions that contributed to my vulnerability to develop cancer.

The Gerson regime is narrow, well-defined, and intense--if you have Stage 4 cancer. I did not have such a crisis, and decided as I read that whatever of the program I did, it was more than I've been doing. (It's easy to get "sloppy," tired, and disgusted with trying to do everything it might take to recover from something there is little medical substantiation I have, and I certainly had slipped out of a lot of good eating habits in three years.) But I've built on that basic belief that any change now would be an improvement, and still often go back to the book to refresh myself on why I'm doing something the Gerson way, why I can't eat something and what else is there, and to remember why I do eat what is recommended.

I feel better immediately when I do, and long-standing conditions are beginning to fall away. Finally I'm sleeping better, and have the stamina and energy for exercise, gardening, carpentry and other activities. The book is helping me immensely, also with the support of a certified nutritionist and the blessing of the oncologist, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is trying to piece together "what's wrong," and what to do get back on the road to recovery.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not for cancer recovery
This book was a huge disappointment to someone trying to take care of a cancer patient.It is, in essence, a re-hash of the familiar food pyramid guidelines that advise low-fat, low-protein and high-carbohydrate diets, organized around specific cancers.The scientific basis, if there is one, relates to epidemiologic studies of cancer risk.It might be helpful to someone who is trying to reduce their risk of various cancers by altering their dietary habits, but I doubt if this book has much more to offer than most of what has been published on that topic over the past several years.It has no scientific grounding for those who already have cancer, and may in fact suggest dietary patterns that would undermine the nutritional needs of those who are already in treatment, when fats and proteins may be friends. For someone undergoing cancer treatment, or in recovery from that ordeal, it has very little to offer that the hand-outs in your doctor's office don't already tell you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best book of its kind
This is an excellent book. It allows cancer patients and their caregiversto understand why certain foods and eating styles may help or hurt. It alsoprovides sample recipes to start the patient along in modifying his/herdiet.
