Pauline’s latest book AND SO WE HEAL , is reviewed below:

“And So We Heal by Pauline Lomas”             Reviewed by Chris Woollams, MA (Oxon) ICON Magazine www.canceractive.com

This article reviews the book AND SO WE HEAL, by Pauline Lomas (www.paulinelomas.com) which is a story of how Pauline overcame and survived breast cancer. It is written by Chris Woollams.

Diagnosed with breast cancer shortly before her 50th birthday,   Pauline Lomas is determined to heal herself without the conventional   surgery, chemo, and radiation.

In her book, And So We Heal, she writes, “This was not something the   doctors could just cut out and I would return to normal life. I knew   instinctively all was not well in my ‘normal’ life. The truth is, I was   sad and heartbroken…surely there had to be a connection.”

No stranger to drama or indeed comedy, having once been an actress in   Hollywood – including a stint as Meryl Streep’s stand-in – Pauline uses   the diagnosis as an opportunity for transformation, courageously taking   a deep look at her own remarkable life. Taken by her hand, we discover   how the time-honoured search for inner balance suddenly becomes urgent   and poignant when the body breaks its own             rules and cells go haywire. Truly an extraordinary book full of useful   information, nutritional guidance, and positive affirmations, made all   the more special by the colourful art and images that were a part of her   healing process.

A sense of humour shines bright, and authenticity blows throughout   the text like a fresh breath of hope. Her own personal prescription for   self healing is there for all to read.

“As children we were told that archangels are a special breed of   angels, which next to their natural sweetness have the strength and   courage to overcome the most fearsome demons”, as Pauline says. This   adventure, for her whole life has truly been an adventure, is   fascinatingly documented. Pauline Lomas is an example for all of how a   steely determination can be associated with a tender soul. An   unpretending angel, with the humility of she who knows that life is   fleeting and that we are all equal before illness. Pauline is an angel   that has ‘made it’.

A must-read book on how one woman beat her breast cancer without any   orthodox treatment; this book will inspire and empower you.
