Everyone has experienced some suffering in their life, often through illness, and, of course, everyone wants to heal. This is a book about healing based on Louis Heyse-Moore's forty years of experience as a doctor, counsellor and a Somatic Experiencing trauma therapist. The author believes healing is much more than just physical cure. Over the many years that he has worked with ill people, it has become obvious to him that their body, mind and spirit are all affected when they are sick. Many doctors are excellent at treating and curing physical illnesses but may miss the other aspects of healing. The Case of the Disappearing Cancer attempts to redress the balance. A word picture is worth a million theoretical abstractions. A good story is one that engages us at gut level. Not just thinking, but also feeling, emoting, remembering, relating; soulfulness in other words. It makes us come alive. This book does just that.

Suzanne Zaccone, one of Americas most influential entrepreneurs, strips naked with a feisty and clear-eyed story of how she loses her breast and fights to get it back. Zaccone writes with an iron grip on the details, and reveals the secrets of cancer patients that are taboo and lost in translation. A Random Interruption is equipped with a dictionary of the language of breast cancer and a list of provocative questions to ask the doctors. World-renowned plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. David Song adds a medical perspective to the book with a Doctors Corner. Raw and unflinching, Zaccones story is the stuff of other womens livesof mothers and daughters and sisters, and of the sisterhood that forms when women are united in battle against a common enemy. Dense, atmospheric and written with spectacular wit and style, A Random Interruption is a literary tour de force. All proceeds from this book will go to the Breast Cancer Center at the University of Chicago.

Cancer Precursors is a groundbreaking, multidisciplinary text containing a comprehensive overview of methodological issues associated with the study of pre-cancerous conditions, as well as reviews of the contributions of descriptive, analytical, and molecular epidemiological research to knowledge about cancer precursors at specific anatomical locations. The research focuses on the early natural history of cancers, by helping to define the etiology of precursor lesions, improving the means of detecting them either directly or via testing of surrogate biomarkers, and by elucidating the role of remote causes leading to the early onset of such lesions.

A critically important and startling look at the harmful effects of overusing antibiotics, from the field's leading expert Tracing one scientist's journey toward understanding the crucial importance of the microbiome, this revolutionary book will take readers to the forefront of trail-blazing research while revealing the damage that overuse of antibiotics is doing to our health: contributing to the rise of obesity, asthma, diabetes, and certain forms of cancer. In Missing Microbes, Dr. Martin Blaser invites us into the wilds of the human microbiome where for hundreds of thousands of years bacterial and human cells have existed in a peaceful symbiosis that is responsible for the health and equilibrium of our body. Now, this invisible eden is being irrevocably damaged by some of our most revered medical advances—antibiotics—threatening the extinction of our irreplaceable microbes with terrible health consequences. Taking us into both the lab and deep into the fields where these troubling effects can be witnessed firsthand, Blaser not only provides cutting edge evidence for the adverse effects of antibiotics, he tells us what we can do to avoid even more catastrophic health problems in the future.

Hyperthermia as a tool for the treatment of malignant disease is rapidly becoming a clinical reality. In this book I am attempting to summarize the known biological and physical underpinnings that have led to this development. I also present a compilation of existing clinical results, limited as these are. My aim is to provide oncologists and other physicians with up-to-date information on this modality, which is both new and old, as well as to make available to biologists, physicists and engineers sum maries of currently available information on specific areas of hyperthermic research. Many people have helped me with this book. Specifically, thanks are due to Drs. William Dewey, Jean Dutreix, Peter Fessenden, Gloria Li, and Jane Marmor. Their suggestions have been invaluable. I hope that not too many errors and omissions have crept into the volume, but in any case, for these I have only myself to blame. I also wish to express my appreciation to David Betten and Marie Graham for their help. Most of this material was written while I was on sabbatical leave on the shores of Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. There I enjoyed the hospitality of a gracious, friendly, and proud people who deserve better than fate seems to have in store for them.

The first book provides a glimpse into the case notes of Robert T. Cooper, and pertains to his experience in treating cancer patients using what he termed "arborivital treatment". By this he meant prescribing a single dose of a plant mother tincture prepared from a fresh, living (vita = life) specimen. Cooper was of the opinion that living plants have an inherent curative action that does not require trituration or succession to bring it forth. In his introductory notes, Cooper draws an analogy between a seed which, in favourable soil will sprout, and grow into a plant, and the seed of cancer in a human being which, again, only in favourable conditions, will develop into a cancerous tumour. In using arborivital tinctures, Cooper suggests that it is possible to combat the "growth force' of a malignant tumour with the growth force of a suitable plant -- undoubtedly an ingenious variation on the principle of similars!

A cutting-edge review of how derangements in the hormonal and growth factor mechanisms controlling normal mammary development lead to breast cancer. Drawing on the multidisciplinary expertise of leading authorities, the book highlights the roles of oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes, spelling out the importance of autocrine/paracrine loops (e.g., stromal epithelial interactions) in supporting breast cancer cell proliferation and the progression to hormone independence. The book's many prominent contributors also illuminate significant recent advances in the biochemistry and physiology of hormone receptors and review the state-of -the-art in the endocrine therapy of breast cancer. Endocrinology of Breast Cancer provides a unique integrated overview of the most significant basic and clinical developments concerning the hormonal aspects of breast cancer.
