Book Description

Heal Your Body, Embrace Your Life.

Few things are more frightening, confusing, or devastating than a diagnosis of cancer. If you or someone you love has cancer (or is at risk for it), you want reliable information, reasons for hope, and a plan of attack you can trust.

Staying Alive provides this and more. A six-year cancer survivor, psychologist, and cancer coach, Dr. Brenda Hunter presents the program that has contributed significantly to her survival, as well as interviews with cancer experts and long-term survivors. Inside you’ll find:

• life-changing strategies for beating cancer
• an integrated, holistic approach to cancer care and survival that involves body, mind, and spirit
• success stories and survival strategies from long-term cancer survivors
• a proactive nutritional program designed to empower you and increase wellness
• interviews with national cancer experts

The good news? The human body has an amazing capacity to heal itself when life-changing strategies are applied. Dr. Brenda Hunter suggests that many of us can work to reverse–or prevent–cancer’s destructive course. Learn how you may be unnecessarily putting yourself at increased risk, and discover the steps you can take today to begin to restore or protect your health.

A Cancer-Conquering Plan for Your Body, Mind, Emotions, and Spirit


From the Trade Paperback edition.

Editorial Reviews

Review

“Dr. Brenda Hunter has created a roadmap that can assist those dealing with cancer along the path of healing.”
–DR. MITCHELL GAYNOR, founder and president, Gaynor Integrative Oncology

“Finally, a book that goes beyond coping skills for cancer patients! As breast cancer survivor, I feel empowered to take charge of my own health. Staying Alive brings hope to every person who has walked through the dark valley of cancer.”
–BECKY HARLING, speaker and author of A Safe Shelter

“There is perhaps no more frightening word than ‘cancer.’ For Dr. Brenda Hunter, it was more than a word; it was a diagnosis. In Staying Alive, Dr. Hunter walks us through her personal experience in the valley of the shadow of death. She doesn’t leave us there, however. By sharing sound strategies that impact body, mind, and spirit, Brenda takes us from hopelessness into healing; from fear into faith.”
–JANET PARSHALL, nationally syndicated talk show host

“Whether you have endured cancer or not, Staying Alive gives a game plan for preventative maintenance of your body, emotions, and spirit.”
–LINDA DILLOW, author of Calm My Anxious Heart and coauthor of Intimate Issues

“A well-written journal on improving your health and “staying alive” in spite of the complex diagnosis of cancer. [Hunter] has managed to collate the many complex modalities used to treat cancer and has condensed them into pearls of wisdom that would benefit anyone. Plus she gives valuable resources of proven experts for restoring the body, mending the mind, and strengthening our spirits for the battles ahead.”
–REX D. RUSSELL, M.D., author of What the Bible Says About Healthy Living

“This fabulous book is a must-read, not only for those confronting a cancer diagnosis but also for anyone who wants a healthier, more fulfilled life. Dr. Brenda Hunter has beaut...

In Staying Alive, Dr. Brenda Hunter gives cancer patients an extraordinary blueprint for maximizing their chances of surviving cancer. As a stage 3B lung cancer survivor, I employed many of these strategies 14 years ago. But I had to read multiple books to find many of them and Dr. Hunter offers such insightful, educated advice beyond what I understood at that time. I still find her book helpful in my efforts to stay well. And what a gift for those going through the experience now to have such good information all in one book. Dr. Hunter's experience as a Ph.D., a cancer survivor and a Christian give her a perspective few authors of books on cancer, no matter how well intentioned, can provide. I really love this book. As I use my cancer experience to help others who are now beginning their cancer journey, Staying Alive is at the top of my recommended list of "must reads". Anyone with cancer seriously looking for ways to contribute to their own wellness will benefit from reading this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Blood on pages - a little disappointing May 14, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I did not have time to return this book, as I was mailing it to family overseas. There was blood on the book, which I was not able to remove as it was on the pages. Perhaps the seller did not notice this. Other than that, the item arrived quickly.
