Surviving Cancer: One Woman's Story and Her Inspiring Program for Anyone Facing a Cancer Diagnosisby Margie Levine
Synopses & Reviews
When cancer specialists at Boston’s internationally renowned Dana-Farber Cancer Institute diagnosed Margie Levine with a deadly asbestos-related lung cancer, they predicted that she had only six months to live. Refusing to give up hope, she chose an approach that combined state-of-the-art medicine with her own holistic program. Eleven years later, her mind/body regimen has evolved into a prescription for survival, and she has dedicated her life to sharing it with others.
Surviving Cancer offers a practical, integrated way of self-healing, with advice on:
•Creating the best possible team of physicians and loved ones
• Maximizing nutrition, using veggie overdosing
• Ridding your cells of harbored anger with a six-point forgiveness program
• Using music to boost your immune system and fight pain
• Using visualization to make your own affirmation tape
• Building up endorphins by seeking joy
• Using creative meditation techniques
Covering these topics and dozens more, Surviving Cancer is not only one woman’s lifesaving testimony, it’s a plan for finding rejuvenation in every new day.
The survivor of a deadly form of lung cancer shares her personal mind/body approach for conquering cancer and regaining one's physical and emotional health, presenting an innovative program that combines aggressive conventional medical treatments with a series of life-affirming activities, including visualization, nutrition, meditation, and music. Original. 12,500 first printing.
Margie Levine is a health education teacher, social worker, and therapist who specializes in integrative medicine, which blends conventional and complementary therapies. She conducts mind/body seminars on health-related issues and also runs the Boston Institute of Noetic Science group. She divides her time between Cape Cod and Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.
