Mesothelioma Product Type: Soft Cover Book
Author: James "Rhio" O'Connor
Reviewed by Doctors: Yes
While looking for resources on living with mesothelioma, I came across Rhio O'Connor's book. I've always been skeptical of anything labeled alternative medicine, so I was prepared to write this off as New Age hokum. To my surprise and relief, O'Connor's book is a well documented and thoughtful look at ways that a person can improve their health rather than attempt to cure their cancer. He has over 40 references from articles written by doctors.
Instead of telling you exactly what you should do, O'Connor is interested in dispensing information that will help patients choose their own path. He explains his own diagnosis and his decision to seek out additional treatments and empowers other patients to do the same for themselves. He is positive and upbeat.
O'Connor is excellent at taking medical information and making it understandable. He breaks his journey down into chapters with a particular focus (Self Sufficiency, Diet & Health, My Supplements, Nutrition & Mesothelioma, Case Studies, etc.) and goes into great detail about each topic's importance. O'Connor's biggest theme is self-reliance and how the patient needs to be responsible for their own treatment and their own mindset. That means seeking out the best information and making your own choices regarding treatment instead of just blinding accepting a diagnosis.
