I somehow came across this book shortly after my diagnosis with Stage IIIc breast cancer. I never liked the idea of visualizing "attacking" my cancer like a war analogy, because the cancer was a part of my body. I used the ideas in this book to visualize the cancer melting away as I filled my breast/chest area with light. A few weeks into the chemo, my oncologist examined me and said, "it almost feels like the tumor is melting away!" And I said, "that's my visualization, exactly!" I'm happy to report my treatment (chemo, surgery, radiation) was successful. I just picked up this book again to recommend it to a friend, and ended up using the visualizations there to 1) fall asleep; and 2) help me lose weight. I highly recommend this wonderful book!
