Abstract:

This ground-breaking book demonstrates dramatically--for the first time--that emotional factors can help determine our vulnerability or resistance to cancer. For over a decade, internationally acclaimed psychologist Dr. Lydia Temoshok has been conducting research at the forefront of mind-body science. Now, with science writer Henry Dreher, she presents her landmark conclusion that a specific behavior pattern--which she calls "Type C"--May influence cancer risk and.

Recovery. Drawing on hundreds of patient interviews and case histories, the authors vividly describe the Type C individual: unfailingly pleasant, appeasing, and--most important--unable to express emotions, especially anger. We all know someone who fits this pattern; perhaps we recognize it in ourselves. Dr. Temoshok suggests that this coping style can sometimes serve us well, but if we chronically repress needs and feelings, we may eventually suffer psychological and.

Physical ill effects. Our immune defenses may be weakened, leaving us more vulnerable to disease. Dr. Temoshok's discoveries offer hope because they emphasize that we all have potentially powerful allies against cancer: our own hearts and minds. In two separate programs, one targeted for cancer patients and the other for people who wish to prevent cancer, the authors offer practical and compassionate advice on how to transform the Type C pattern. While no one is to blame.

For Type C behavior or for any health consequences, all of us can learn to recognize and express the entire range of our emotions, and become more empowered in our relationships. The result is both a richer and a healthier life.
