From the Inside Flap

Praise for
Fighting Cancer from Within

"I recommend mind/body medicine to almost all cancer patients I see. This very readable book tells you why that approach is so important and gives you the practical information you need to use your mind to access the healing power within. If you or a loved one has cancer, read it -- it can be a great help."
-- Andrew Weil

""Dr. Rossman reminds us that we all possess the spirit and strength to regain control when cancer takes over our lives. His creativity and experience over the years are on full display in Fighting Cancer from Within, a bright and useful synthesis of imagery and other tools that can restore harmony and set the compass for smooth sailing in rough seas."
-- Debu Tripathy

"From one of America's pioneers in holistic medicine comes a book that approaches cancer from a comprehensive, body-mind-spirit perspective. No one who is dealing with cancer can afford to neglect any of these dimensions. If you or someone you love is facing cancer, this book is vital."
--Larry Dossey, MD., Author of Healing Beyond the Body, Reinventing Medicine, and Healing Words

"Fighting Cancer from Within is iluminating, practical, and deeply reassuring. Dr. Rossman is a beautiful teacher and a wise healer."
-- James S. Gordon

"For anyone determined to fight cancer and the side effects of cancer treatment, this book is mandatory reading. It will show you how to use guided imagery and the mind-body connection to stop worrying and to start winning to the very best of your ability."
--David E. Bresler

Format: Paperback
Dr. Rossman's book, Fighting Cancer from Within, is a remarkable and important contribution to the field of oncology. His practical approach translates the idea of comprehensive healing of mind, body and spirit into a realistic guide for the newly diagnosed cancer patient.
As an Oncologist for almost 30 years, I continue to be amazed at the possibilities for healing, which can be facilitated with the use of guided imagery. Dr. Rossman provides a valuable guide through which cancer patients can empower themselves to cope with their disease process. This book teaches patients how to reduce the stress of their initial anguish and turmoil, facilitate healing from surgery faster and more completely, tolerate side-effects of chemotherapy and radiation better, and begin the journey of healing and recovery.
I plan to make this book available to each new cancer patient receiving treatment in our practice at California Cancer Care. -David S. Gullion, M.D.

Format: Paperback
It is now 10 days since my second surgery for thyroid cancer. I diligently practiced Dr. Rossman's techniques in the weeks leading up to my second surgery and in the days since using the guided imageries on the companion CD (available separately). The difference between my second surgery and my first (a very similar procedure that I white-knuckled my way through) were astounding. These differences included (second vs. first): no post-surgery nausea, greatly reduced pain after surgery, less of a decrease in mobility in my neck region and I am much more relaxed. I attribute these benefits in large part to Dr. Rossman's techniques.
While my second surgery was not a picnic, using Dr. Rossman's techniques made a big difference for me both physically and emotionally. Your mileage will most certainly vary, but for me, it was well worth the effort.
I found Dr. Rossman's writing style and approach to dealing with cancer to be very reassuring, empowering and also complementary to the work that I am doing with my surgeon and endocrinologist. I would recommend Dr. Rossman's book and companion CD to anyone who is interested in becoming more actively involved in their cancer treatment and who wants to explore the power of the mind-body connection.

22 of 26 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on May 5, 2003
Format: Paperback
Last year this reviewer would never have read a book like FIGHTING CANCER FROM WITHIN: HOW TO USE THE POWER OF YOUR MIND FOR HEALING for it is clearly intended to help a specific group. However, my beautiful neighbor Chuck came down with a deadly form of cancer, but as his health deteriorated his will to live and his love for his wife, children, and grandchildren, and his conviction in God left me in awe of a great person. No miracle occurred as Chuck ultimately passed away, but he fought to live until the end and probably gained an extra month to hug his family and friends. With his memory etched in my brain, this reviewer read Dr. Martin L. Rossman's guidebook with a more open mind than the cynic I was would have read it last year, that is if I even tried.
This book does not claim that mental imagery replaces accepted medical practices in the fight against cancer. There is no special philosopher's stone, but instead Dr. Rossman provides readers with an easy to follow guide on how a victim's mind can help in the unending war. He furnishes specific examples to improve the odds of defeating or at least containing the deadly disease. Dr. Rossman asserts that a positive mind can lead to significant emotional and physical impact and shows how to complement standard treatments with specific imaging techniques to bring the entire mind and body into focus against the invaders. Not guaranteeing any walk on water cure, this is a winning tool in the fight against cancer.
