Chemotherapy works to beat cancer, but it also takes its own toll on the cancer patient's body and health. During treatment, it is more important than ever to do what can and must be done to keep cancer patients strong and healthy. The best way of doing that is to work with the body's innate healing powers. "Stay Healthy During Chemo: The Five Essential Steps" by Mike Herbert (a naturopath with more than 15 years in practice as a wellness consultant, with a particular emphasis on nutrition and natural healing) offers a treasure chest of practical guidance for feeling good during chemo and beyond. And it does so through 5 basic steps to: Change your thinking and develop an attitude focused on healing; Detoxify with therapeutic baths to promote healing from the inside out; Eat the best foods to create a healing chemistry in your body; Supplement your diet to support healing momentum; Exercise and rest to speed the healing process. It should be noted that "Stay Healthy During Chemo" is enhanced with the inclusion of more than a hundred simple recipes, as well as a menu-planning guide. Packed from cover to cover with relevant, practical, insightful, useful, and effective information that is specifically written for the benefit of the non-specialist general reader having to deal with cancer within themselves or a loved one, "Stay Healthy During Chemo" should be considered an essential instructional guide and reference. Simply stated, "Stay Healthy During Chemo" should be a part of every community and academic library's Health & Medicine collection. For personal reading lists it should be noted that "Stay Healthy During Chemo" is also available in a Kindle edition ($9.99).
