Embrace, Release, Heal: an inspiring look at healing from cancer

Embrace, Release, Heal by Leigh Fortson is now available for purchase from Sounds True. This book is a must-read for anyone and everyone who has had reason to visit my blog, everyone who suffers from cancer, has a loved one with cancer, or just fears it based on the statistics that are regularly produced to scare us. IMHO it should be sold as a companion volume to The Emperor of All Maladies, which has much information to offer but little hope. Dr. Mukherjee should be gifted with a copy of this book.

Here is a link to the foreword and the introduction, and here is an excerpt in Leigh Fortson's own words:
I include here both my own [story] and the stories of other people who’ve had cancer. Most were told they would die. They didn’t. After exhausting what conventional medicine had to offer, they walked away from the grisly prognosis and found another way. Some call it a miracle. I’ve come to believe it’s just the way things work when we get out of our own way. These stories will help inspire you to see the infinite possibilities that may be available to you, but that your doctor will likely dismiss. They reflect the truth that cancer can be effectively treated physically, emotionally, and spiritually through a different, more life-affirming paradigm than conventional medicine traditionally offers. These stories demonstrate why the conversation around cancer must be changed. If nothing else, I urge you to read all of them. Simply put, they are good medicine.
Many readers of this book share my view of how valuable it is. Here is a link to some reader reviews on Amazon.
