New Book is a Study on the Use of Complementary and Alternative Methods in the Treatment of Breast Cancer

The battle for cancer is still being fought. Different people from different walks of life have tried ways and means to finally defeat this monster. Author Joseph E. Bosiljevac, Jr., M.D., Ph.D., FACS shares his professional opinion regarding this matter by presenting a young woman’s struggle with breast cancer. Made available through Xlibris, Surviving Cancer is not merely a book about the importance of nutrition and detoxification; it is also a story of hope, of triumph, and of life.

This is the story of Donna, a patient with Stage III breast cancer who chose treatment using complementary and alternative methods over conventional medical therapy. She is currently seventeen years post diagnosis with no evidence of tumor. The initial part entitled “The Journey Begins” summarizes the author’s thoughts in lay terms and also gives an idea of his experience with Donna and others during his career. The next part of this book presents Donna’s story in her own words. Not only does this show her progress as she tries various alternative methods, but it also displays the psychosocial aspects as she fights for her life. This is a portrayal of her private life with which many can identify. This personal story is then followed by the author’s doctoral dissertation which serves as a medical case study. A commentary about use of conventional and alternative methods in cancer and overall health is also included.

A source of inspiration and enlightenment, Surviving Cancer is written to present a remarkable story about defeating this disease, introduce how to fit healthy living into an individual lifestyle, and arouse curiosity about complementary and alternative methods.
