By Honora Wolfe & Bob Flaws
Trade paperback book
More than half of all Western women, at some point during their lives, have some health complaint involving their breasts, while one in every nine will develop breast cancer. Modern Western medicine has little to offer in the way of preventive care for the breasts, and its remedial treatment, at least for cancer, often seems little better than the disease itself. Traditional Chinese Medicine, on the other hand, has a two thousand year old theory about how and why breasts become diseased. Based on this theory, there are a myriad low or no cost treatments for both the prevention of breast disease before it arises and the treatment of benign breast complaints which, Chinese medicine says, may evolve into malignant ones.
