Overview

"This book puts music, laughter, and heart front and center, and the results are magical."
- Mark Hyman, M.D.


In Dr. Steven Eisenberg's oncology practice, the enemy is cancer, but it's also denial, anger, and fear—draining emotions that can interfere with the effectiveness of treatment. Every day, Dr. Steven helps patients fight cancer using both time-tested conventional therapies and innovative medical technologies. At the same time, he helps them overcome negative emotions by cultivating acceptance, love, and self-compassion in a deeply personal way, through laughter, empathy, and the music he plays and sings for and with them.

In Love Is the Strongest Medicine, Dr. Steven shares:
  • Compelling, highly readable stories that chart his journey on the front lines of care
  • Practical wisdom that readers can use to navigate their own journeys and get through what they’re going through right now
  • A road map for bringing humanity back into traditional medical practice
  • A blueprint for patients, families, and caregivers to live each day with hope—no matter what the day brings

  • “When everything else falls away," Dr. Steven writes, “whether you are in a hospital exam room or tucked in bed at home, whether you are sick or well, patient, caregiver, or medical professional—the love that remains is the miracle.”
