LACEY, Wash., Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- A moving personal testimony and compelling guide to surviving breast cancer, "The ABC's of Breast Cancer from Victim to Survivor" (published by AuthorHouse), the new nonfiction by Jannette Kortman, highlights the possibilities of natural healing in conjunction with conventional medicine and the power of positive thinking.
"Your mind is a very powerful tool," Kortman writes. "The words you speak determine whether you are a victim or a survivor. A survivor detaches from the problem, and has a moment of clarity: 'I am going to survive.' Choosing your words will determine your destiny." A strong, outspoken survivor, Kortman presents her own experience with breast cancer as a testimony to the effectiveness of using both natural and spiritual methods for healing the body as opposed to the use of toxic medications and surgery. Although she emphasizes that medical care is a personal choice, she also asserts that each woman should take responsibility for her own choices and her self.
Taking readers through the entire alphabet, Kortman covers a variety of topics -- conventional and unconventional -- associated with breast cancer treatment and survival. Some of Kortman's sample subjects include personal attitude, forgiveness as healing, nutrition, the lymphatic system, depression and yoga. She writes:
Attitude -- It's about having a positive attitude. Use healing words instead of deadly words. "I had breast cancer" as opposed to "I have breast cancer." One is speaking of life and the other of death. Nutrition -- Food is your friend as long as you choose wisely. Learn how to shop wisely by shopping the outside aisles. Getting the heart of the store, you will find "dead food" items that contain toxins that are harmful to your body. ... What you put in your body can either help you or destroy you. It is simple. The easiest way to beat the cancer is by eating foods that will starve the cancer.
Delivering an empowering, uplifting message of hope to all who are affected by breast cancer and its victims, "The ABC's of Breast Cancer from Victim to Survivor" will strike a chord in readers' hearts and offer a much-needed guide to reclaiming control in a tragic situation.
Jannette Kortman is a breast cancer survivor and dedicated wife. She formerly served in the military for 20 years. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2006 and she is cancer free today. Kortman currently resides in Lebanon, Penn., with her husband, Gerry.
