Enjoy Every Sandwich

Lee Lipsenthal was a doctor, researcher, and President of the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine, and the medical director for Dean Ornish's Preventive Medicine Institute. So if there was someone who knew the causes and cures and alternative perspectives on cancer it was Lee.

Lipsenthal died young. He died of esophageal cancer. He wrote this book after his diagnosis, during his treatments and into his dying. He was not able to cure his own cancer but he was able to cure his fear of death. He was able to die fully alive. It's a terrifically thoughtful book, especially coming from someone whose profession kept him close to the best of Eastern and  Western medicine.

You can click on the link below, or go to your local bookstore, pick up a copy and read the first three pages of chapter one. You'll be his after that.
