This book is intended as a support system for individuals who have been diagnosed, or had family & friends diagnosed, with cancer or other chronic diseases.
It will show you how recovery is very possible in most cases, especially with an early diagnosis, and how by changing your lifestyle now, even before a diagnosis, is the best way to an extended healthy life.
What happens when we get diagnosed with a potentially life-threatening illness?
What are our immediate thoughts, who do we call?
How many of our waking hours are consumed with these thoughts?
What spectrum of emotions do we experience?
Where do we go for guidance and whose opinions can we trust?
Do we ask for strength or sympathy?
Do we allow people to commiserate with us or encourage us?
These are all vital questions to ask and answer before deciding what path to take.
It's time to start looking at things differently and take personal responsibility.
It's time for health education rather than research.
It's time for your re-education by doing your own personal research.
Don't allow the media and false advertising to cloud your perspective.
Read this book, answer the questions, do the exercises and decide to live a long, healthy and vital life!

This book is very informative and I enjoyed very much. My husband was going thru cancer treatment when I read this and it was inspirational. Shirley wade
Yes, the book is about illness, and how one can overcome, and live a healthier life. However, on a deeper level it is the manifestation of a commitment that an amazing human being made, to take what could have been a devastating lot, and turn it into a gift, not only for herself, but for all the world to benefit.
Having gone through a cancer diagnosis with my brother several years ago and his subsequent passing, it would have been great to have faced the battle head-on with a book like Linda's. Knowledge is power and Linda provides that knowledge.
This is a very much needed book - our society's health has deteriorated dramatically with a massive increase in chronic disease diagnoses, and prescription medication. Linda's book shows how, with a variety of simple daily principles, and basic understanding of how our bodies function, anyone can improve their health and vitality. Most important is that it's easy to read and understand, and the questions & exercises in each chapter, will help the reader create their own individualized health plan. Highly recommended for those family members and friends whom we would love to see take better care of themselves.
