Editorial Reviews

Review

“As the general public becomes more interested in the benefits of healthy eating, these authors are shining a light on the association between nutrition and malignant disease. The book is an evidence-based treatise on the role of nutrition in wellness, treatment, and follow-up care as a vital part of dealing with cancer. It also happens to be the part that the patient has the most control over. The book is a treasure chest of cutting-edge information. It includes a meal plan, pantry set-up, and starter recipes.”
—Anna Jedrziewski, New Age Retailer



“The heart and soul of The Whole-Food Guide for Breast Cancer Survivors is empowerment! The book is chock full of wonderful morsels of information and shows us that food is one of our most powerful tools for healing and nourishment.”
—Rebecca Katz, MS, author of The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen



“With one in seven women suffering from breast cancer, The Whole-Food Guide for Breast Cancer Survivors is a much-needed book. It provides useful information for women who are looking for a holistic approach and a good road map to guide breast cancer survivors into a healthier lifestyle.”
—David Brownstein, MD, author of ten books and the Dr. Brownstein’s Natural Way to Health monthly newsletter



The Whole-Food Guide for Breast Cancer Survivors is a common-sense compendium of what you need to know to live longer and better if you have or had breast cancer, or want to prevent it. Authors Edward Bauman and Helayne Waldman wisely blend lifestyle and natural strategies that strengthen our bodies’ defenses against cancer and promote wellness. A must-read for anyone who wants to take control of the destiny of their own health. “
—Len Saputo, MD, founder of the Health Medicine Forum, Health Medicine Center, and author of A Return to Healing



“I am delighted to see this book in print. It contains lots of valuable information that will help women and men make the most informed decisions on dealing with breast cancer. The book is very readable, and is filled with instructions on what we can do now to help ourselves.”
—Ann Fonfa, founder of The Annie Appleseed Project and diagnosed with breast cancer in January 1993



The Whole-Foods Guide for Breast Cancer Survivors offers readers a robust synthesis of how nutrition can dramatically reduce your risk of breast cancer or recurrence. This book provides not the watered-down and jaded suggestions offered previously, but exciting, new tips that most oncologists don’t know. Highly empowering and life-altering for women.”
—Sara Gottfried, MD, integrative physician at The Gottfried Center for Integrative Medicine in Berkeley, CA, and author of The Hormone Cure



“Bauman and Waldman have written an easy-to-follow guide for whole-body healing filled with inspiring anecdotes and helpful chapter-by-chapter to-do lists. It is an excellent resource that may be used to equip recovering breast cancer survivors as well as their families with solid nutritional information and delicious recipes containing healing foods that will ensure health, well-being, and longevity.”
—Margo Jordan Parker, OMD, CEO of Herbal Fortress

Once I heard Helayne Waldman speak at the Annie Appleseed Conference, I had to buy this book. As a cancer coach, I am always on the lookout for books to recommend to my clients--books I call roadmaps for survival, and this one is a must-read.

Did you know that a well-nourished immune system fights off invaders, including cancer, using a coordinated sequence of events? Waldman and Bauman give you not just the explanation, but the means for making this happen.

Down on dairy but eat whey? You bet; whey has many anticancer and immune-friendly benefits. Discover the benefits of this and many other anticancer foods, and learn how to reduce exposure to cancer promoters. The book will empower you to take charge of your health, help you heal faster, and reduce your risk for recurrence.

I ordered this book along with two others... By far this is the one that I liked the least. There is some helpful information in there but the format is convoluted, the writing not clear and the connection between the science and the food I'd often muddled and not easy to follow. Recipes are so-so... And I honestly haven't gotten much at all out of this book. I expected more and better.

I do LOVE the other two books that I ordered along with this one, and they have become an integral part of my (and my family's) efforts, at home, to help me to prepare my body for chemo through diet and foods, and to help my body support itself after infusion cycles by preparing and eating certain foods that help with side effects and loss of essential minerals, dehydration, etc. etc. those books are "The Cancer Fighting Kitchen" and "One Bite At A Time" both by Rebecca Katz.

This book has been a tremendous help. I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer in September of this year. I am grateful for my doctors and the treatments that modern medicine has provided for me, but I was thrilled to discover this book. It has armed me with the knowledge I needed to do something that is within my own control to reduce the risk of my cancer recurring. The information is written in easy to understand language and provides simple, practical advice on how to put the knowledge to work for me. I have recommended this book to every one I know who is battling cancer, and to everyone I know who wants to prevent cancer! It has drastically changed the way I view food. I carefully consider what I buy and what I choose to put in my mouth because I now understand the consequences - good and bad - of each decision I make. God created an amazing thing when he created the human body - and he created the earth to provide perfect food for those bodies. This book explains how feeding our bodies the food it was intended to have keeps our immune systems strong...and the bad stuff at bay!

The "Whole Food Guide For Breast Cancer Survivors" is a great easy-to-read source of essential science-based information about cancer: what could contribute to it and how you can keep it under control after treatment.
In this book, authors discuss how you can avoid or minimize exposures to various risk factors and strengthen your immunity by building body's nutrient reserves.

In addition, since hormonal balance, blood sugar regulation, stress, inflammation, and toxic burden play an important role in cancer development, the authors give practical tips on how to optimize all these factors, help the body return to the state of internal harmony and maintain lasting health.

You will learn which nutrients are crucial for health and how to nourish your body with delicious nutrient-dense whole-foods based meals using the easy to follow recipes. Plus, the tips on how you can make your pantry super-healthy are in the book, too.

The guidelines on eating and living for recovery and health empowered my mom and grandpa to tolerate chemo and radiation treatment, recover from its effects, and continue living and feeling better.
My mom has been cancer free for 12 years (although she needs regular reminders and coaching to stay on track, especially about better eating out choices and non-toxic personal care products like cosmetics, skin creams, and perfumes). This book gives a succinct outline of good ideas - great to use as a constant reminder to stay on healthy track for cancer survivors. I wish it could be translated into different languages.

Highly recommended for a general reader as well as for someone going through cancer treatments and interested in optimizing recovery!

A wealth of information for the breast cancer survivor. Also very helpful for women who are seeking to do all they can to prevent breast cancer. This book is EMPOWERING, not fear based. It is full of practical tips, tools and guidance including nourishing and delicious recipes. This is one to keep on a nearby shelf for easy reference.

The Whole-Food Guide for Breast Cancer Survivors
Edward Bauman
Helayne Waldman

"I can't say that the cancer walk is easy, but I know that if someone like me can change, then anyone can change."
Marilyn - Quote from her Afterword, Pages 161 - 163

Plaudits for Other Amazon Members' Quotes in Book

D'Ann - Last Word, Avoidable Exposures, Excerpt: "Change is rarely easy or simple, but
good changes can save our lives!" Page 55

Carole - Last Word, Nutrient Sufficiencies and Efficiencies, Excerpt, "Once I started recognizing
myself for the unique biochemical being that I am, I could pick and choose the
nutrients that made the most sense for me," Page 79

Karla - Last Word, The Keys to Lowering Your Toxic Burden, Excerpt, "I'd just not given that
much thought to cleaning my 'insides'. My breast cancer changed all that," Page 144

Congratulations, Helayne, on writing this wonderful new book on foods as medicine for breast cancer survivors!

By providing background information on healthful foods and ways to decrease our toxic exposures, Helayne's book is compelling reading for every breast cancer patient to help prevent a recurrence.

Illuminating healing strategies with tons of delicious information (including, literally, recipes - some of them from Helayne, herself), plus tips on vitamins, foods, and toxin-reduction, that are all sprinkled with delightful breast cancer survivor testimonials, embody Helayne's theme that every breast cancer patient can take healing steps with medicinal foods. Indeed, no matter what a breast cancer survivor has done in the past, after a breast cancer diagnosis, "Anyone can change".
