The Whole-Food Guide for Breast Cancer Survivors: A Nutritional Approach to Preventing Recurrence (New Harbinger Whole-Body Healing)by Ed Bauman
Synopses & Reviews
If you’re a breast cancer survivor, chances are you have renewed your commitment to maintaining your good health and taking care of your body. As one of the best preventative measures known to doctors and nutritionists today, a robust, cancer-fighting diet is vital to your personal plan for breast cancer prevention.
The Whole-Food Guide for Breast Cancer Survivors is an essential guide for every woman seeking to understand the effect of nutritional deficiencies and environmental factors on her overall health and wellness. Based on Edward Bauman’s groundbreaking Eating for Health model, this highly comprehensive, practical approach can help you reduce the chance of breast cancer recurrence; rebuild your immune system; and enjoy a stronger, healthier body.
Reduce the chance of breast cancer recurrence by:
"Bauman, executive director of Bauman College Holistic Nutrition and Culinary Arts, and Waldman, a holistic nutrition educator, convey the message that when it comes to breast cancer, 'nutrition is power.' Targeted at breast cancer survivors, the authors present an organic, plant-based, antioxidant rich, anti-inflammatory, whole-food approach. They begin with a rundown of traditional risks such as age and heredity, but swiftly segue into such 'emerging' risk factors as the consumption of sugar, trans fats and rBst, iodine deficiency, and other issues. Delving into the field of 'nutrigenomics,' the authors explain how foods trigger genetic changes for good or for ill and point out that while five to ten percent of breast cancer is connected to heredity, far more cases can be linked to chronic inflammation, compromised immune system, and excess of oxidation (free radicals), all three of which are affected by diet. In fact, the authors claim, food is the first line of defense against breast cancer. The importance of exercise and such 'avoidable exposures' as certain personal care products, pesticides, and BPA are also covered. This well-researched resource will empower breast cancer survivors to make proactive food and life style choices that may profoundly affect their chances of recurrence. Also included are wholesome recipes and helpful, healthful 'to do' lists. "
