I guess I would say compared to my books on cancer, it leaves you feeling positive, like you can beat this disease.

I love this book! I really like the author's web site and videos, so I am thrilled that the book meets or even surpasses my expectations. It feels like I am reading a letter from a wise friend...very warm and full of great information. I love her writing style. I wish I had this book available when I dealing with cancer 12 years ago. But I think that for long term survivors like myself, or even people looking for prevention, this book will be very valuable. I recommend this book highly. Anyone dealing with cancer or even just wanting to create better health will love it.

We've all experienced the heartbreaking affect of cancer on loved ones and friends. Many of us will experience the "surreal trip" of hearing a diagnosis of cancer ourselves. Dena Mendes' book begins with the story of her own battle with cancer. Then, she continues with details and suggestions about treatments. Her research and experiences have much to offer a reader who is looking for an optimum treatment - especially for patients with breast cancer. She frequently reminds the reader that her suggestions were right for her...and may not be the best course for another person. She reminds us to trust our intuitions and dreams.

In addition, Mendes has suggestions which will benefit all her readers, but especially those who are dealing with cancer. Her comment that "cancer gives you the gift of freedom from the old constraints that bound you" is inspiring. She counsels others to "recombobulate: reinvent, revamp, refocus, and renew." A list of "Max's healing instructions" on page 43 is concise and ....not impossible to achieve. (Mendes introduces Max - her personal guru and a natural healer.) Some of her suggestions, especially regarding food, may seem impossible. Giving up sugar and dairy - and eating seaweed will probably sound impractical to most readers. However, since much of the author's advice sounds sensible and reasonable (best sleep is sleep by 10,) it may be important for health and healing to consider her advice. The allegory of treating ourselves like a garden is appealing. What nutrition, rest, sunshine, or rain do we need for optimal wellness?

Adults, who are dealing with cancer themselves or are interested for a loved one's benefit, will profit from reading this book. Those who would like to improve their overall wellness would also enjoy reading the suggestions and positive attitude underlying the author's writing.

This book was sent to me by [...] com for my honest review.

I was completely drawn to this book because I love the proactive, assertive approach to illness. My father died of lung cancer and I was curious to know what other options he may have had. For myself, I have noticed that people who are victorious over illness have a deep well of knowledge, wisdom, and spirituality. I had the feeling this book would share some of that with me and I was not disappointed.
She freely offers links, resources, common sense, and soothing statements that I could not help but ear mark and underline in the first read. There are places where Dena gives specific advice and natural remedies for radiation and chemotherapy. She knows what she is talking about because both she and her husband went through cancer. At the heart of this book is a sentiment on page seven that reads, "You will first need to turn inward to the silence of your soul." There is no place of your life that Dena does not address. Her prose is like that of a good friend who tells you like it is while empowering you to do the same. She makes complex things simple and even more, made me want to do her suggestions.

This comprehensive book on radical self-care encompasses such topics as how to choose your doctor, self-care with cancer treatments and tests, natural remedies, detoxification, food and causes of inflammation, renewing your environment, and your emotional health. Dena's section on saying no and speaking your truth hit me between the eyes when I read that difficulty taking a full deep breath in is a sign of an inability of speaking my truth. WOW! This was me! This is not a cancer book - this is a how-to-live-life book. I highly recommend it to those who want to take the driver's seat in regards to their health and well-being. It's a definite manual for my shelf with all the website, food, and book suggestions.

This is a battle cry for anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer.

Infused with humor, honesty, humility and pragmatism, this book was and continues to be a cheerleader for me.

18 months after completing treatment I still pick up this book to remind myself that I CAN do this.
