From the Foreword:
“As a physician who has practiced holistic medicine, now called Integrative Medicine, for over 4 decades, I can attest to the value of the strategies that Dr. Freedman recommends including in your treatment program.” —Martin Rossman, MD, author of The Worry Solution and Guided Imagery for Self-Healing
Here is what Dr. Kelly Turner, PhD has to say about Healing with the 7 Principles of Mindfulness:
“Dr. Freedman speaks from experience, both as a cancer survivor himself, and the father of a Radical Remission cancer survivor. His book, “Healing with the 7 Principles of Mindfulness” gives readers a nurturing, helping hand throughout the entire cancer journey, especially with regard to developing a meditation practice. –Kelly Turner, PhD, Author of the NYTimes Bestseller “Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds”
One of his main healers was the Isadora Duncan Award winner and innovative dance performer and teacher, Anna Halprin:
“I am a cancer survivor, so what I have to share comes from personal experience. Cancer is like enlightenment at gunpoint. One must face it and do something. The 7 Principles… provides us with realistic and practical modalities that give us strength to face the challenges of cancer and hope to survive. This is a must read book for anyone facing cancer or their caretaker.” —Anna Halprin, PhD, dance pioneer, author, choreographer, and winner of the Isadora Duncan award and many others.
A seminar participant had this to say:
“As a nutritionist and naturopath, I was drawn to the event because I found it fascinating that mindfulness could heal cancer. Originally thinking I would only stay a few minutes for the event, I not only stayed the whole time, but learned so much from Jerome and the 7 strategies. Jerome is such an amazing person who has contributed so much and the mindfulness meditation sessions during the event and discussion amongst the attendees was dynamic to say the least. I believe Jerome’s testimony and book gives people power. Power that they can overcome the biggest of odds. Power that there are alternatives to just chemotherapy, and power that by becoming one’s own health advocate through meditation, nutrition, and lifestyle change, healing is in our hands.” –Immanuel Lewis, an elite holistic and naturopathic nutritionist practicing in Santa Monica.
