  • Oncology Massage: An Integrative Approach to Cancer Care

    In Oncology Massage – an integrative approach to cancer care the authors have created a textbook which will provide both experienced and inexperienced therapists with a resource to expand their knowledge and understanding of working with people with cancer. Cancer occurrence and survivorship are now so common that every massage therapist will at some time work with clients who have been through cancer treatment. The short and long-term effects of biomedical cancer treatment require massage therapy adaptations to pressure, site, position and duration to provide safe and effective treatments. Informed massage therapists can support the body to promote overall wellness as well as identify the underlying secondary effects of cancer treatment that contribute to physical dysfunction.

    Oncology Massage: An Integrative Approach to Cancer Care provides massage therapists with essential information for:

    Treatment planning based on the physiology of cancer and cancer treatments

    Critical, thoughtful treatment decision making

    Consideration of the psychosocial effects of cancer

    Enhancing therapist self-awareness and building a therapeutic relationship.

    The information is presented in a clear and simple format with plentiful use of illustrations and information boxes which allows it to be used both as a learning tool for those new to the field of oncology massage and as a resource for quick referral when working with new patients.

    The techniques of massage therapy change very little; it is the knowledge and understanding of their use that distinguishes a massage therapist. Oncology Massage is unusual in that it includes contributions not only from a range of experienced practitioners but also from people with cancer who have received massage during and after cancer treatment. This feedback from clients provides an invaluable addition to the understanding of how massage can be used as a safe and effective part of cancer care.

  • A Cancer Therapy: Results of Fifty Cases

    Dr. Gerson (1881-1959), who developed the Gerson Therapy, explains how the treatment reactivates the body’s healing mechanisms in chronic degenerative diseases. The book incorporates extensive explanation of the theory with scientific research and the exact practice of the therapy, as well as a presentation of fifty documented case histories. Extensive information on diet and nutrition is provided, as well as a full list of forbidden and permitted foods. Gerson’s cancer therapy is based on cleaning the body of toxin’s whilst nourishing it fresh organic juices. The basic assumption is that disease comes from an accumulation of inorganic toxic waste in weakened area’s of the body, which cause an environment for disease to proliferate.

    For 20 years in New York he treated hundreds of cancer patients who had been given up to die after failing all conventional treatments. In 1946, Gerson demonstrated recovered cancer patients before the Pepper-Neely Congressional Sub-Committee, during hearings on S. 1875, a bill to authorize the President to wage war on cancer. Although only a few peer reviewed journals were receptive to his revolutionary ideas Gerson continued to publish in the U.S. and abroad. In 1958, after 30 years of clinical experimentation, Gerson published A Cancer Therapy: Results of Fifty Cases. This medical monograph details the theories, the treatment, and the results achieved by a great physician.

  • A Survivor’s Guide to Triple Negative Breast Cancer: All you need to know from diagnosis, to treatment, recovery and beyond.

    Exploring the emotional and medical aspects and everything the Author wish she had known when first diagnosed, the book is designed to help anybody with a primary Triple Negative Breast Cancer. The book takes the reader from diagnosis, through to treatment and beyond in an easy to read format, broken down into sections with illustrations and photographs.

    Diagnosis:

    The shock of finding out you have breast cancer, and then being told it’s Triple Negative, can be confusing and worrying. You may be bombarded with information, but also have a long list of questions. Taking the stress out of finding answers, the book starts by demystifying breast cancer, how it begins, understanding Triple Negative, and why it’s different to other types of breast cancer. With this knowledge, it will help to understand your own diagnosis, and hopefully, you’ll feel better informed for any meetings with your oncologist or surgeon.

    Treatment:

    What should you expect from surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy? The book guides you from the point of diagnosis, helping you to prepare, and understand the process including typical timelines and treatments. Each section is broken down, so you know what to expect and when. Simply understanding what’s to come, can help take the fear out of the unknown. Read real-life stories from Triple Negative breast cancer patients who discuss their treatment, surgery, what they had, and why.

    Recovery & Beyond:

    Treatment has finished and it’s the day you’ve waited for, but what now? How long is recovery and what should you expect? As you emerge out of the hospital bubble, you enter the most challenging time because life can feel different. You may feel anxious and apprehensive, scared that cancer may come back. The book discusses what you might expect, the ongoing aches and pains that cause concern and what you can do to help yourself. Your future may be a little different, but there’s no reason why Triple Negative can’t be a part of your past.

    The book contains treatment regimes specifically for the UK, but all other information is relevant to anybody with a Triple Negative Breast Cancer worldwide.

  • everything you hoped you’d never need to know about bowel cancer: A doctor’s very personal guide to getting through the sh*t and beyond

    ‘THIS BOOK COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE’ Lorraine Kelly

    1 in 15 men.
    1 in 18 women.
    Every year in the UK 43,000 people are newly diagnosed with bowel cancer.

    Dr Anisha Patel is one of them. Young, fit, and married to a consultant gastroenterologist and bowel cancer screening specialist, in 2018 she was diagnosed with Stage 3 bowel cancer.

    Despite being a family doctor, Anisha had no idea what would come next. With the benefit of hindsight, and after first-hand experience, she understands now that the diagnosis is just the beginning, that treatment can be physically and mentally overwhelming, and that the hard work really starts when the treatment ends.

    Drawing on her own experience and her medical expertise, as well as that of specialists in the field, Anisha’s book is an essential companion for anyone facing a cancer diagnosis. She outlines what to expect at each stage, from diagnosis, through treatment and into the ‘new normal’ that awaits, with practical advice and emotional guidance for every step of the way.

    Hers is not the only voice; here you will find a chorus of individuals who share their own lived experiences of bowel cancer and its aftermath, in the hope that they, too, can navigate you through the eye of the cancer storm, to thrive in the life beyond.

    Powerful and personal, this is a life-saving book for a life-changing diagnosis, and a testament to human resilience and the enduring power of hope.

  • Colorectal Cancer (Oxford Oncology Library)

    Colorectal cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related death in the world. Twenty-five percent of patients present with advanced disease and, despite complete surgical resection of early stage disease, 50% of patients relapse. The treatment of colorectal cancer has advanced rapidly in recent years, and controversies persist regarding optimal management (e.g. whether combination chemotherapy should be used first-line or in a staged fashion, how long to treat patients for and whether to use an intermittent or continuous schedule and whether to refer for a radical approach for advanced patients).

    Part of the Oxford Oncology Library, this pocketbook summarises the epidemiology and risk factors for developing colorectal cancer and the basic biology of the disease. The evidence governing approaches in diagnosis and oncological management both surgical and non-surgical of the primary tumour is also covered, including which surgical approaches to use and indications for neoaduvant / adjuvant radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Providing perspectives from the different disciplines involved including surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology and palliative care, this pocketbook will serve as an invaluable reference for all health care professionals involved in the management of patients with colorectal cancer.

  • Alive, Surviving Modern Oncology

    Cancer is a bitch of a disease. Every single person who’s experienced being diagnosed and treated is a hero. There are a lot of cancer books out there. What’s different about this one?

    Maybe nothing. Maybe a lot. I’m a psychologist by trade. About fifteen years back, I started writing novels. Unfortunately, there’s not a scrap of fiction in Alive. There are also no dragons, unicorns, or magical worlds. This book was tough to write. In places, it will be equally tough to read. In addition to my personal saga, it includes stories from other brave souls who volunteered to be part of this project. There are also chapters about the etiology of cancer, cancer as big business in America (and elsewhere), avoiding scams, and integrative oncology.

    Like most, I started my cancer journey believing the MDs had my best interests at heart. A few did, but to so many others I was nothing but a number, a statistic, many steps removed from a human being.

    My hope for Alive is it will empower others to stand up for themselves, to ask questions, to do their own research. Ultimately, everyone’s life is precious and worth the effort of self-advocacy.

  • Living with Cancer: A Step-by-Step Guide for Coping Medically and Emotionally with a Serious Diagnosis (A Johns Hopkins Press Health Book)

    The prospect of entering treatment is overwhelming for anyone facing a diagnosis of cancer. While patients have access to a vast amount of medical information online, this advice is often unreliable or confusing. In Living with Cancer, Drs. Vicki A. Jackson and David P. Ryan have crafted the first step-by-step guide aimed at helping people with this life-defining disease grasp what’s happening to them while coping physically and emotionally with cancer treatment.

    An empathetic resource full of relatable patient stories, this book teaches patients and caregivers how to ask the right questions to get the best possible care―beginning at the moment of diagnosis. Drs. Jackson and Ryan explain how to work with a team of doctors and nurse practitioners to minimize symptoms and side effects while living as fully as possible in the face of cancer. They relay important information about understanding prognosis, and they translate what doctors mean when they describe tests, treatments, and medical procedures. Finally, they discuss hospice care and answer questions about continuing treatment and managing the final phase of life.

    Based on new research and a groundbreaking program in which patients are treated with palliative care―along with the best cancer care―during the course of their illness, this honest and caring book provides the right advice to use at the right time throughout a journey with cancer. It allows a person with cancer to concentrate on living the best life possible, despite an uncertain future. Patients at every stage will find Living with Cancer a comprehensive, thoughtful, and accessible guide for navigating the illness and its treatment.

    • Nu-Oncology; Cancer Prevention and Anti-Aging: Volume 1

      Nu-Oncology vol. 1 details out a definitive nutritional inclusion plan to markedly reduce your odds of getting cancer, to protect you from getting stricken with non-infectious diseases, and to dramatically slow the aging process. This book fully explains the science of how this protocol will reduce your risk of cancer while also being enjoyable to read. It is an appropriate read for anyone high school age and older. The protocol focuses on the “Essential Eight” and how these often trace molecules are having such a profound impact on our health. These molecules which are rare in most foods are super-produced and/or concentrated by a few select foods. By adding just small amounts of these select foods marvelous non-infectious disease fighting mechanisms go into action. The human body was designed to work together with these molecules to fight off disease (as is fully detailed out within the book). The colon health portion of the book really applies to everyone, but especially for persons with IBS, UC, or Crohn’s. It has easily and successfully been used to treat and cure long-standing UC where Western Medicine had failed, all in a side-effect free manner. America has the highest cancer incidence in the world (by a huge margin). It’s time we all become pro-active at protecting ourselves and our family from the ravages of cancer. Reduce your body’s fibrosis, lower your cholesterol naturally, protect yourself from dementia and Alzheimers. It’s all within the anti-aging portions of the book (with the heaviest focus being cancer prevention). Women, this book focuses intensely on breast and colon cancer prevention, two of the most common types of cancer in women.

              Exploring the emotional and medical aspects and everything the Author wish she had known when first diagnosed, the book is designed to help anybody with a primary Triple Negative Breast Cancer. The book takes the reader from diagnosis, through to treatment and beyond in an easy to read format, broken down into sections with illustrations and photographs.

              Diagnosis:

              The shock of finding out you have breast cancer, and then being told it’s Triple Negative, can be confusing and worrying. You may be bombarded with information, but also have a long list of questions. Taking the stress out of finding answers, the book starts by demystifying breast cancer, how it begins, understanding Triple Negative, and why it’s different to other types of breast cancer. With this knowledge, it will help to understand your own diagnosis, and hopefully, you’ll feel better informed for any meetings with your oncologist or surgeon.

              Treatment:

              What should you expect from surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy? The book guides you from the point of diagnosis, helping you to prepare, and understand the process including typical timelines and treatments. Each section is broken down, so you know what to expect and when. Simply understanding what’s to come, can help take the fear out of the unknown. Read real-life stories from Triple Negative breast cancer patients who discuss their treatment, surgery, what they had, and why.

              Recovery & Beyond:

              Treatment has finished and it’s the day you’ve waited for, but what now? How long is recovery and what should you expect? As you emerge out of the hospital bubble, you enter the most challenging time because life can feel different. You may feel anxious and apprehensive, scared that cancer may come back. The book discusses what you might expect, the ongoing aches and pains that cause concern and what you can do to help yourself. Your future may be a little different, but there’s no reason why Triple Negative can’t be a part of your past.

              The book contains treatment regimes specifically for the UK, but all other information is relevant to anybody with a Triple Negative Breast Cancer worldwide.

            • everything you hoped you’d never need to know about bowel cancer: A doctor’s very personal guide to getting through the sh*t and beyond

              ‘THIS BOOK COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE’ Lorraine Kelly

              1 in 15 men.
              1 in 18 women.
              Every year in the UK 43,000 people are newly diagnosed with bowel cancer.

              Dr Anisha Patel is one of them. Young, fit, and married to a consultant gastroenterologist and bowel cancer screening specialist, in 2018 she was diagnosed with Stage 3 bowel cancer.

              Despite being a family doctor, Anisha had no idea what would come next. With the benefit of hindsight, and after first-hand experience, she understands now that the diagnosis is just the beginning, that treatment can be physically and mentally overwhelming, and that the hard work really starts when the treatment ends.

              Drawing on her own experience and her medical expertise, as well as that of specialists in the field, Anisha’s book is an essential companion for anyone facing a cancer diagnosis. She outlines what to expect at each stage, from diagnosis, through treatment and into the ‘new normal’ that awaits, with practical advice and emotional guidance for every step of the way.

              Hers is not the only voice; here you will find a chorus of individuals who share their own lived experiences of bowel cancer and its aftermath, in the hope that they, too, can navigate you through the eye of the cancer storm, to thrive in the life beyond.

              Powerful and personal, this is a life-saving book for a life-changing diagnosis, and a testament to human resilience and the enduring power of hope.

              About the Creator, Carly Cooke
              My son Harri was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer in 2018 at the age of 3. Our journey involved a 9 month period of intensive chemotherapy treatment, including a 6-week period of Proton Beam Therapy. I have learned along the way that every journey is different, so I have tried to cater for all. However, I have also included sections where you may need to add more detail more specific to your journey.

              I hope you find this journal a useful aid for keeping your notes in order. I also wish for the best possible outcome of your treatment.
