Beschreibungen

The first goal of this book is to provide the patient with accurate information. The second goal is to show how a combination of "orthodox medicine" and complementary therapies can help people through their cancer diagnosis, treatment and follow up. Early chapters apply to all women diagnosed with cancer, followed by chapters for each specific site of disease. Then follow chapters on chemotherapy, radiotherapy, pain management, complementary therapies and spiritual approaches. The book incorporates a novel "4 cusp" approach, which enables women to explain to their families where they are in the process.
This book covers the medical, emotional, and psychological aspects of cancer and includes the successful "4 cusp" approach to the disease. It also explores a combination of orthodox medicine and alternative therapies to best battle cancer.
This book is designed, as the title “Pathways to healing” suggests, to allow you and your family ready access to all the information you require about your c- cer to allow you to understand the different directions your disease may take. It should allow you to realize the breadth of possible outcome from where you stand at the particular point in time when you buy the book, or as your disease progresses or not. This book has been written for you wherever you are in the disease, ranging from cured, to those that spend many years living with their cancer, to those who sadly die of their cancer. One of the greatest privileges working in the field of cancer care is meeting many wonderful people, some of who have very kindly written sections of this book. We do hope that by reading this book things may be a little clearer for you and at least some worries made lighter.
