Description

After breast cancer treatment, you may ask "now what?" Your health care team might also be asking what they should tell you do to improve your outcomes after treatment is over. Did you know that there are health care behaviors that have been proven to be just as effective in improving breast cancer outcomes as the therapy you just received? Yet less than half of breast cancer survivors follow these powerful lifestyle practices. Are we missing an important opportunity to improve breast cancer outcomes?Information motivates. Recommendations do not. And breast cancer survivors are seeking information. Based on a thorough review of the medical literature, Carolyn I Sartor, M.D., and her team of experts at New Life after Cancer, a breast cancer survivorship group, outline a straightforward path to wellness. "A Prescription for Wellness: Health Behaviors that Improve Outcomes after Breast Cancer" presents the evidenced-based studies of health and wellness interventions after breast cancer so that both health care providers and breast cancer survivors can readily see the impact of these practices on breast cancer outcomes. With this knowledge in hand, healthcare professionals can hand their patients a prescription on the last day of treatment - a prescription for wellness - with a book to back it up. Information motivates and this easy to read but information packed book will motivate you to make astonishing life style changes that could, quite literally, save your life. It will provide you and your healthcare team with a prescription for wellness that you can follow after treatment to lead a life of health and well being after breast cancer.
