My husband was diagnosed with cancer in 1982. He took chemo and radiation concurrently as his "only" chance to live--even so, his prognosis was not good. He found a copy of this book and an audio cassette tape from the Simontons. He read the book, then read it again, then read it again, while continuing chemo and radiation! Each day, three times a day, he listened to the audio tape. He placed as much faith in the book and its suggestions and in the relaxation-visualization tape as he did in the conventional treatment he was receiving. He lived almost fifteen years after diagnosis and did not die from inoperable lung cancer but from bleeding ulcers. This book and the visualization tape if it is still available, are MUSTS for people diagnosed with cancer who are willing to use their minds to help their bodies cure themselves.
I read this book 17 years ago while I was undergoing chemotherapy and it completely changed the way I saw myself, my illness, my treatment and my prognosis. Give this book to anyone you know who has cancer and help to save their lives. I agree entirely with the previous reviewer, this book is a MUST, as important as the conventional therapy you receive.
I got Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome in l972 which went undiagnosed for 19 years, but the second half of this book helped me cope with an illness that devastated my life, and it gave me the tools to hang in and eventually help others like me. I have given away dozen of copies of it to both CFIDS and Cancer patients. Its one of a kind and the very best.
