Cancer Positive : The Role of the Mind in Tackling Cancers Paperback
As a surgeon and a medical doctor, James Colthurst is used to employing more traditional methods of treating cancer.
In this ground-breaking book, however, he argues that through addressing the emotional needs of patients, and after the processes of diagnosis and treatment, their physical condition can improve dramatically.
Drawing on many years of research and of practical hands-on experience, Dr Colthurst demonstrates that a series of psychological exercises and mental disciplines, as a supplement to more conventional treatment, can improve the physical as well as the mental well-being of patients.
He has achieved outstanding rates of recovery in even the most aggressive cancers through his approach, which combines accepted medical practice with a recognition of the enormous benefits of adopting a positive attitude to the disease and its treatment.
The book focuses on lifestyle changes, while also addressing the practical side.
Drawing on his own experience and case histories, Dr Colthurst explains the medical terms and treatments available, while also providing a wealth of information needed by cancer sufferers and those close to them.
