"Can relationships and emotions help the body fight breast cancer? Reduce side effects? Double the power of chemotherapy? When women draw on connections to deal with feelings, use psychological techniques to reduce trauma and boost medical treatment, why does the outlook for breast cancer change?" "Dr. Lauren Ayers gives positive and encouraging answers to these and other questions in The Answer Is Within You. Her book is based on startling new advances in breast cancer treatment that have emerged from psychological research, and which promise to radically alter clinical practice in the years to come. Foremost among them are findings from Stanford University, the University of Pittsburgh, and Ohio State University research laboratories which have had stunning clinical successes in recent years and have made psychological factors a powerful booster for medical treatments. They show that women's ways of relating and dealing with emotions give them an inherent advantage in maximizing outcomes with breast cancer treatment." "The Answer Is Within You makes important psychological research accessible to a popular readership and offers hope to the two million women diagnosed with breast cancer. Like the advances in diabetes and heart disease, the health-enhancing techniques described in this book show women how to actively work for their own health rather than passively accept the disease."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
