Since her cancer diagnosis, Valentina Castro started writing and painting as a way to cope with her situation. Then, she thought that writing a book could be helpful for someone else facing a crisis or challenge in his or her life. This thought led her to write “Reconnecting to Self-Healing: The Art of Advocating for Yourself” (published by Balboa Press).

In this book, Castro summarizes her experiences of a healing journey. The cases she presents are people with whom she had worked with and who had given her permission to share their stories. Here, she shares healing techniques and suggestions that can contribute to coping with the cancer process and other disease. It is a complement to conventional and/or alternative methods that readers can elect for a cure. It does not intend to replace any doctor or treatment, nor does it intend to diagnose.

“Because life happens, and sometimes we could find ourselves in a situation of despair. It could be health conditions, divorce, bankruptcy, grief, etc. This book offers an approach to cope with whatever we struggle,” Castro says. “I want readers to have the reflection and interest in connecting with their intuition and trusting in it; find in this book a way to bring their life in balance. Above all, find a way to reconnect to self-healing.”

Written from the heart and should be read from the heart as well, “Reconnecting to Self-Healing: The Art of Advocating for Yourself” aims to guide anyone to find and trust in their own truth. For more details about the book, please visit
