"Dr. Freedman speaks from experience, both as a cancer survivor himself, and the father of a Radical Remission cancer survivor. His book, "Healing with 7 Principles of Mindfulness" gives readers a nurturing, helping hand throughout the entire cancer journey, especially with regard to developing a meditation practice."
-Kelly Turner, PhD, Author of the NYTimes Bestseller "Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds"
"Healing with 7 Principles of Mindfulness" is a valuable guide to navigating the complex terrain of cancer diagnosis and treatment. Blending his direct experience with cancer and a deep practice in mindfulness and guided imagery, Dr. Jerome Freedman offers a unique and valuable perspective with mindful healing approaches.
-Leslie Davenport, Author of Healing and Transformation Through Self Guided Imagery
"Jerome Freeman's "Healing with the Seven Principles of Mindfulness" is a user-friendly approach to make practical (very practical!) specific things that can empower each person to achieve higher levels of health. These principles are not just logical and rational, they work...and they just feel 'right.' These principles will not only improve your health, they will improve your life!"
-Dana Ullman, MPH, CCH Author of ... The Homeopathic Revolution, Discovering Homeopathy, and Everybody's Guide to Homeopathic Medicines (co-authored with Stephen Cummings, MD)
I am a 19 year parotid gland cancer survivor, a type of cancer that can return at any time. In addition to traditional western medicine protocol, as part of my healing process, I have used many different alternative healing modalities. The approach that Jerome has documented in his book coincide with my experience of surviving cancer. His book is a great resource for anyone facing the trauma and challenges of a serious health crisis.
--Julie Bernard, Homeopath
"Jerome is not a medical doctor, but a doctor of computer science - he's a very smart man. He's also an ordained practitioner in a Buddhist tradition and a compassionate listener and observer of the human condition. He has helped many friends and acquaintances navigate their way through cancer diagnosis, treatment, and often, recovery."
-Martin Rossman, MD, from the foreword
From the Author
Why I Wrote This Book
I wrote Healing with the Seven Principles of Mindfulness in order to inspire you to be the boss of your medical treatment and to share with you how and why you should do it.
The Seven Principles of Mindfulness in Healing have been formulated over the past 39 years - ever since Micah had cancer. Up until now, they have been implicit in everything I did for my son and for myself. When I first was diagnosed with muscle invasive bladder cancer in 1997 and then again at the end 2013, I immediately applied these principles and now I am cancer free with all my body parts!
At the beginning of 2012, I began making these principles explicit so that I could share them with you in the form of a book.
Becoming and advocate for your own healthcare is your first stop on your path to well-being. Once you adopt this principle, a daily meditation practice provides you with the foundation to recognize and know what is going on in your body, your feelings, your thoughts and your mind. With just nine minutes a day, you can learn to calm your mind and make appropriate choices for your medical care.
