A book about choices. A book to empower all cancer sufferers and their families. In March 2011 Laura Bond's mother Gemma was diagnosed with ovarian and uterine cancer. Laura discovered that the only thing more shocking than telling someone your mother has cancer was revealing that she had declined chemotherapy. But, according to studies, many oncologists would do the same. So Laura, a journalist, started writing a blog to explain her mother's decision to say 'no' to mainstream medicine and 'yes' to hydrogen peroxide, vitamin C injections and infrared saunas. Mum's Not Having Chemo shares Gemma's natural healing story as well as advice from over 60 of the world's leading cancer specialists and holistic healers - from oncologists in Tokyo to energy healers in Harley Street. If you want to explore alternative options, or find ways to supplement your conventional care, this book provides cutting edge research from around the world and describes treatments road-tested by Gemma and other cancer survivors. It's an invaluable and uplifting companion to help you make the best choices for your own healing journey.
