Judith T. Walenta had just begun her new career as a nurse practitioner in Manhattan when she is diagnosed with stage one breast cancer.
Having avoided conventional medicine for years in her own care, she suddenly finds herself diagnosed with a serious-potentially fatal-disease. At first her unwavering faith in holistic healing seems to abandon her and she resigns herself to accepting traditional treatment.
But when her search begins to uncover alternatives, she rejects surgery and chemo and chooses therapies that heal her mind and spirit, as well as her body. In the end, she not only wins her battle against breast cancer, but is also shown that it's possible to live a richer, fuller, more joyous life-even after receiving a life-altering diagnosis.
In this memoir set in 1990 and 1991, the author shares both her very personal journey as she seeks to eradicate the cancer threatening to kill her and a historical perspective on the growth and development of what is commonly called "alternative medicine" today.
Join the author on her journey of spiritual, emotional, and physical healing after the biopsy that changed her life forever.
