Editorial Reviews

Review

I found your gem of a book was the perfect bridge of support after finishing my cancer treatments. -- Lee Raven, RN, Cancer Survivor, Guided Imagery For Health & Wholeness, Berkeley, CA<br /><br />Thanks again for your book! I keep finding more and more helpful information as I read it over and over. --Janet Barker Alleman, Cancer Survivor, Kankakee, Illinois

From the Publisher

The first three editions of this booklet sold out very quickly. The most recent 4th edition has new information and is larger with print which is much easier to read. People from 47 states and 6 foreign countries have already ordered this popular booklet. It is common for a reader to order one copy and then soon order several more to give to friends, relatives, and members of support groups. Additionally, many health care professionals of various specialties who work extensively with cancer patients have ordered this booklet in bulk to give to their patients.

WOW!! This impressive book is for the person who desires to "optimize" their own health. Diana, a Registered Dietitian, and survivor of THREE episodes of cancer herself, discusses the on-going and evolving state of nutrition research and how she uses that information to determine her own "optimal diet" to treat/prevent cancer recurrence. She discloses how she has implemented good nutrition and complementary therapies into her everyday life. She shares her own recipes, serving sizes, sample menus, tips for eating 9+ servings of fruits and vegetables, recipe book sources, her own personal grocery list, dining-out tips, and newsletter, book & internet resource listings. Don't pass up this great help-yourself book!

Format: Paperback
This would be a very helpful book for anyone who wants to improve her or his nutrition, regardless of whether they have cancer or not. The author starts out by teaching the reader how to have a well balanced diet - information everyone needs to know. One of the things I like best about the book is that she acknowledges that research on nutrition and cancer is incomplete, but then goes on to discuss how to include foods that have been shown to be possibly helpful in preventing cancer. The book is packed with useful information and helpful hints to make the dietary changes easier and more enjoyable. Reviewed by Patricia J.

Diana's perspective is truly unique, as she is someone who is not only a health professional but also has firsthand experience with both traditional and complementary approaches to cancer treatment. Her book is packed with not only Diana's personal story but also informative, useful advice for reducing cancer risk and for treatment......I found this book to be both engaging and inspirational. This book would be an invaluable resource for anyone interested in cancer prevention or treatment and recovery.

When I started reading A Dietitian's Cancer Story, I found it so interesting, well written, and practical that I could not stop until I had finished. Then I thought, what a wonderful information resource from which many people around the world could benefit. It has been a pleasure for me to translate A Dietitian's Cancer Story into Spanish (Historia De Cancer De Una Dietista) which is also now available on Amazon.com. I admire Diana Dyer as a nutrition professional and also as a patient who has gone through a lot to be where she is now: helping many people. The field of cancer and nutrition has been enriched with the book A Dietitian's Cancer Story.

This book is wonderful. If you have received that dreaded diagnosis, your doctor is not going to give you as much advice as Diana Dyer does. This book tells you how to improve your diet to maximize your chance of surviving. If you are still healthy, try to stay that way by following her guidelines. I was struck by how far ahead of her time Diana Dyer was. She was making changes (some controversial) way before the research showed she was doing the right thing.

As a dietitian and psychotherapist in private practice myself, my speciality is weight control, trauma and eating disorders. So when a friend of my dad's, and later my dad, were diagnosed with cancer (he survived throat cancer), I sent them copies of Diana's book, because that's her specialty. Plus I have a book for myself so that I can help my dad and other clients more. It's a great book with helpful information and healing recipes. He survived and is doing well. Thanks, Diana!

During my own battle with cancer, I learned SO much about how nutrition can both save your life and then help you to maintain a strong, healthy life.
I decided to become a Registered Dietitian to try to help others learn this information and help themselves as well. While speaking with my adviser at the new school, I was informed about this woman who had made a similar journey and who had decided to do the same thing! I bought the book and I am so glad that I did - she is an inspiration!
It arrived in perfect condition and very quickly - thank you!

Format: Paperback
A brief but good presentation of some of the main ideas of using a vegan diet to benefit a person with cancer. I found it at a cancer treatment center which had several other books which go merrily on presenting diets which include milk, eggs and meat as appropriate for cancer patients. Dyer's stated principle for her diet is to consider whether anything she puts in her mouth will be helpful or harmful regarding cancer, based on current knowledge, some of it not mainstream. She admits going beyond what many of her mainstream dietician colleagues would consider adequate prudence regarding food choices.
