1. Love, Medicine and Miracles

love med miraclesby Bernie S. Siegel

Siegel, a New Haven surgeon, believes that the power of healing stems from the human mind and will, that his scalpel only buys time against cancer, and that self-love and determination are more important than choice of therapy. His philosophy has caused radical changes in his practice. Siegel recounts many arresting anecdotes: joyous stories of patients who survived against all odds, sad chronicles of those who seemingly gave up and assented to their own deaths. The author’s credentials make this one of the more plausible books on the mind-body connection.

 

 

2. Getting Well Again

getting well againby O. Carl Simonton M.D., James Creighton Ph.D. and Stephanie Matthews Simonton

In this revolutionary book the Simontons profile the typical “cancer personality”: how an individual’s reactions to stress and other emotional factors can contribute to the onset and progress of cancer — and how positive expectations, self-awareness, and self-care can contribute to survival. This book offers the same self-help techniques the Simonton’s patients have used to successfully to reinforce usual medical treatment — techniques for learning positive attitudes, relaxation, visualization, goal setting, managing pain, exercise, and building an emotional support system.

 

 

3. Fit For Life

fit for life

by Harvey Diamond and Marilyn Diamond

Fit for Life aims to return you to a lifestyle based on your natural body cycles. That means 70 percent of your diet should be “high-water-content foods”–fruits and vegetables–which facilitate all body functions. Consume nothing but fruit or fruit juice until noon, then eat salad and vegetables with every meal for the rest of the day.
