Cancer is still the great mystery disease. When first diagnosed, you probably searched for answers to a myriad of questions like "What caused my cancer?" and "What are my treatment options?" These answers are essential: the better informed you are, the great your odds of beating cancer. Self-care is, in fact, one of the most important aspects in recovery. This book guides you through a comprehensive, unique process to help you partner with your physician to overcome cancer. The key aspects of this multidisciplinary approach are detoxification and renewal of the body, mind, and spirit. Contrary to popular belief, the genetically inherited component of human cancer is relatively small. Much more important are diet, nutritional deficiencies, and toxins that have harmed your body. Nutritionist Cherie Calbom presents a detoxification program to rid you of these toxins which includes both 30-day programs and easy cleanses if you are working full time. Then she identifies the foods that are harmful to your healing and the "super hero" foods and nutrients that will rebuild your immune system and restore your health and vitality. Therapist John Calbom learned the importance of listening to the messages about what is going on inside your mind, emotions, and spirit during his work with cancer patients. Research indicates that some emotions can trigger cancer cells to metastasize, and other emotions can keep your body helathy and cancer cells in check. Calborn presents step-by-step, interactive exercises to guide you through a process of letting go of the thoughts and emotions that are destructive to your healing.
Cherie Calbom, "The Juice Lady," therapist John Calbom, and Michael Mahaffey, a twenty-year cancer survivor, present a unique, multi-disciplinary approach to fighting cancer.
