She highlights prevention techniques that have the biggest impact on reducing cancer. This is a good approach to encourage people to adopt prevention strategies with the greatest reduction potential in cancer. She details herbs and anti cancer agents that one can take naturally, and discusses their benefits based on research. Drink your green tea! She also includes information on the ayurvedic (traditional Indian) medical system.
A few criticisms from an otherwise stellar book. Her section on soy has a lot of misinformation. Although soy has some documented anti cancer benefits, Horner ignores that soy mimics estrogen - a cancer feeding agent. She also fails to discuss the fact that most soy is GMO, which has the highest pesticide load of crops (it is covered in round up). She ignores research on how GMO foods cause tumors in lab animals. And she encourages replacement of meat with vegetarian options like veggie burgers, which are usually heavily processed soy products full of chemicals. These processed soy foods are deadly!
She also fails to address research on health benefits of healthy saturated fats. She demonizes all fats without discriminating between healthy saturated fat (avocado, coconut and grass fed meat).Read more ›
As a woman with a family history of breast cancer these were my questions. My aunt died of breast cancer at age 77--young considering that all of her siblings have lived well into their 90's.
Enter Dr. Christine Horner's book Waking the Warrior Goddess. In this groundbreaking book I have found the antidote to the sense of fear and helplessness that surrounds the specter of breast cancer.
Dr. Horner's book is well researched and contains a practical program for making positive changes that support a woman's health on all levels. I found the extensive list of resources to be particularly helpful. And while I have found most books on health topics to be quite dry, this book is the rare exception. Dr. Horner engages the reader with her warm, intimate style. Her passion for her subject matter is apparent. A highlight of the book is her personal story of how the book came to be written.
I highly recommend this book to any woman who is concerned about creating and maintaining a healthful lifestyle that protects her from the scourge of breast cancer. Now is the time to awaken our Warrior Goddess. Do not hit the snooze button. Read this book.
I liked many things about this book. One small example is the author's final section on "customs" instead of the tedious and overused "steps." Perfect. Dr Horner gives us, in one word, a different, better, gentle, inspiring, insightful way of thinking about changing habits that immediately improve our odds in the horrible life/death cancer equation. It's one of many such fine touches. The publisher, Basic Health has a serious winner here. Kudos to them for publishing a much needed user-friendly masterpiece built on a Gibraltar of the latest and strongest published peer-reviewed placebo-controlled research culled directly from the medical database. Dr Horner's traditional medical education shows in her careful, accurate writing. With this book, you can confidently and effectively start fighting or preventing cancer today. Period. This book will change your odds and your mindset. This book can save your life, and the lives of those you love.
From the 50-thousand foot view, this book is a milestone of insight. The truth is, the talented pen of Dr Horner, a surgeon, expertly peels back the veil on our misguided often deadly assumptions to reveal the dynamic emerging model of medicine and tools that can save and strengthen your health.Read more ›
