A twelve-year cancer survivor and oncology rehabilitation specialist, Dr. Julie K. Silver wroteAfter Cancer Treatment to help others recover from the exhaustion and physical devastation that often follow treatment. This new edition of the book, retitledBefore and After Cancer Treatment, describes improved therapies, better delivery of care, holistic care options, and energetics. In covering the benefits of prehabilitation strategies, which improve physical and emotional strength before beginning therapy, the book adds another dimension to the experience of cancer treatment. Dr. Silver fills this survivor-oriented book with exercise and diet recommendations as well as step-by-step instructions for fighting fatigue, monitoring mood, and overcoming setbacks. Readers are encouraged to set balanced goals, take time to heal, and consult both conventional and alternative medicine. --Publisher.
