William P. reviewed Getting Well Again: The Bestselling Classic About the Simontons' Revolutionary Lifesaving Self- Awareness Techniques on + 24 more book reviews
In GWA they now profile the typical "cancer personality": how an individual's reaction to stress and other emotional factors can contribute to the onset and progress of cancer--and how positive expectations, self-awareness and self-care can contribute to survival. This book offers the same self-help techniques the Simontons' patients have used so successfully to reinforce usual medical treatment--techniques for learning positive attitudes, relaxation, visualization, goal setting, managing pain, exercise, and building an emotional support system.
Some critically ill people get will because they have the "will to live." This book teaches techiniques so that every personality type can have that chance at survival. Based on the Simontons' experience with hundreds of patients at their world-famous Cancer Counseling and Research Center.
