Written by a naturopathic physician specializing in complementary cancer care, Breast Cancer: Thriving Through Treatment to Recovery provides solutions for maintaining health and improving quality of life during conventional cancer treatment. With diet, exercise, and mental health plans tailored to treatment protocol and cancer type, this valuable guide offers safe and effective tools and practices to support patients through every phase and protocol. Organized into six easy chapters, the book summarizes the effects of chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, and hormone therapy; catalogs potential side effects; and includes recipes, exercise programs, and mental health therapy suggestions based on symptoms and predictable side effect risks to build strength, promote healing, and improve outcomes.

  • Exercises to build strength with an array of low- to high-impact cardiovascular and weight-bearing exercises
  • Quick and delicious recipes designed to include daily protein, fiber, and carbohydrate needs for patients in recovery
