My journey would have been different if there were such a book as “The Whole-Food Guide,” because it is so specific for breast cancer. The authors cover “Traditional and Emerging Risk Factors, Eating for Health, Avoidable Exposures, a lot about all aspects of nutrition including sufficiencies, efficiencies, glucose, weight, immunity, inflammation and lowering toxic burden, and hormone harmony.” … But the book doesn’t end there. It is followed up with recipes, resources, and references. Edward Bauman and Helayne Waldman did an excellent comprehensive job. It is well written and easy to follow. And as I said, every breast cancer patient fears the dreaded word recurrence. This book is a major step to empower women to do everything in their power to prevent one. The rest is in God’s hands.

As the general public becomes more interested in the benefits of healthy eating, these authors are shining a light on the association between nutrition and malignant disease. The book is an evidence-based treatise on the role of nutrition in wellness, treatment, and follow-up care as a vital part of dealing with cancer. It also happens to be the part which the patient has the most control over. The book is a treasure chest of cutting-edge information. It includes a meal plan, pantry set-up, and starter recipes.

The Whole Foods Guide for Breast Cancer Survivors offers readers a robust synthesis of how nutrition can dramatically reduce your risk of breast cancer or recurrence.

Highly empowering and life-altering for women–and we’re all at risk for breast cancer.

I was recently introduced to Helayne Waldman, author of “The Whole Food Guide for Breast Cancer Survivors”. I would have given it a different title because it is the first book I have ever encountered that explains what different foods do to your body and how ingredients, vitamins and minerals affect various systems in our body. The detail, and sometimes you have to read and then reread to fully absorb the knowledge is mindblowing. Every person that has had high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, hypertension, lethargy, depression, multiple sclerosis I could go on and on, should read this book. You will learn something. You will take away more understandable awareness of why healthy eating is important and that it isn’t hard to make quality adjustments in your diet without sacrifice to taste and food enjoyment. The book lets you learn more about yourself and your health numbers than any doctor has ever helped me to understand. Ever.
As a two-time breast cancer survivor, I found Dr. Helayne Waldman’s book an absolute must read! Current cancer statistics state that one in three people will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetime. Dr. Waldman’s book may change those statistics to more favorable numbers.

I LOVE this book. I’ve got Stage IV cancer, but it’s books like this that are helping me to stay strong and not let cancer win. Did you know that your lymph system doesn’t have a pump and, only exercise keeps you from stewing in your lymphatic juices? Me either…til I read this book! Get it, you will not regret it!
