Book Description

7 Dec 2006 What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About...

An empowering book that no woman can afford to miss, with lifesaving information on how to treat and prevent breast cancer.

Breast cancer is on the increase in the West and, despite governments spending billions on research and new treatments, your chances of survival are roughly the same today as they were 50 years ago. This controversial book exposes the failings of conventional treatments of breast cancers and offers a revolutionary programme for lowering the risk of breast cancer, significantly improving your chances of recovering from this disease, and preventing a reoccurrence. It is at once a shattering and empowering read.
Revealed:
• 80 per cent of breast cancers are brought on by oestrogen dominence
• Teenagers taking the pill increase their risk of developing breast cancer
• Biopsies, mammograms and chemotherapy often do more damage than good
• Poor diet and exposure to toxins and pollutants contribute to hormone imbalance.
But:
• Natural progesterone helps prevent and treat breast cancer
• 30 minutes of moderate exercise a day may save your life
• A healthy diet is vital for healthy breasts.
The book is divided into three sections, covering the history and politics of breast cancer; the role of sex hormones in breast cancer; and clear, practical advice for preventing and treating breast cancer. Questionnaires help readers determine whether they may have a hormone imbalance. This is one book women cannot afford to miss.

5.0 out of 5 stars An eye-opener! 3 Aug 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A must-read for all who suffer from this condition or are related to sufferers, but also for those who wish to take preventative measures. There is so much more to be done than just conventional medicine approaches (which should be a last resort). This book gives much food for thought, with well-researched references. Does exactly what it says on the tin! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Also useful for preventing the disease. 24 Mar 2014
By Shell
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this as someone close has the disease, and whilst it gave great advice about cancer, I also found much if it useful for my issue with pmt and menstrual migraine. I have been using the progesterone cream as the book recommends and implementing the lifestyle changes and, it took about 3 cycles, but the pmt is 90% better, and I have no period pain at all! For those with a strong family history of breast and other hormonal cancers, balancing hormones will also serve as a good preventative, so this book is also useful for those wanting to reduce their risk of this disease. They say prevention is the best cure.

By SJW
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very informative book which has really helped me think about how to better care for myself as a breast cancer survivor. It's very full of quite complex medical arguments backed by proper research - as such it's not an easy read, but it repays the effort. There are a lot of books out there on breast cancer and a lot of quackery. But it's also true to say that mainstream oncologists, sometimes for the best of reasons, don't offer you a very full picture of what your options are. I've had the chemo and the radiotherapy and the drugs - now I'm looking for a way to live a healthy life free of recurrence and I feel that Dr. Lee's book is certainly a very valuable source of information on how to go about doing that. Read it and make up your own mind.
