When cancer specialists at Boston's internationally renowned Dana-Farber Cancer Institute diagnosed Margie Levine with a deadly asbestos-related lung cancer, they predicted that she had only six months to live. Refusing to give up hope, she chose an approach that combined state-of-the-art medicine with her own holistic program. Eleven years later, her mind/body regimen has evolved into a prescription for survival, and she has dedicated her life to sharing it with others.
Surviving Cancer offers a practical, integrated way of self-healing, with advice on:
Creating the best possible team of physicians and loved ones
Maximizing nutrition, using veggie overdosing
Ridding your cells of harbored anger with a six-point forgiveness program
Using music to boost your immune system and fight pain
Using visualization to make your own affirmation tape
Building up endorphins by seeking joy
Using creative meditation techniques
Covering these topics and dozens more, Surviving Cancer is not only one woman's lifesaving testimony, it's a plan for finding rejuvenation in every new day.
