Overview

Breast cancer has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. Once a relatively rare disease, it now affects 2 to 3 million women, and the incidence is going up at an alarming rate. What can we do about it? Christine Horner, M.D., has the prescription: Take healthy organic foods, add a good dose of certain supplements, get the rest and exercise we need, and avoid those things that are bad for our bodies. We each have a Warrior Goddess in us, and it's time to set her free. A pioneer who pushed through federal and state legislation ensuring that breast reconstruction after a mastectomy would be paid for by insurance companies, Dr. Horner lost her own mother to breast cancer. She decided then that her mother's death would not be in vain. Something good would come from it. This legislation was her first gift to her mother's memory, and this book is another. Useing the metaphor of the Warrior Goddess, this book explains something that Ayurveda describes as our "inner healing intelligence." It also explores the various foods and supplements that can enable women to successfully fight breast cancer and claim the healthy body that should be theirs. Dr. Horner tells readers what to avoid and what to embrace, what will poison the Warrior Goddess and what will feed her and what she needs to thrive.

Christine Horner, M.D., F.A.C.S., is a nationally recognized surgeon, author, professional speaker, and relentless champion for women's health.more
