We fondly salute the prolific, knowledgeable and endlessly resourceful holistic health writer, cancer guide and all-round sweetie-pie, Henry Dreher. Henry is a regular contributor to Natural Health and Advances in Mind-Body Medicine and has written for New York Magazine, Self, Shape and Tikkun. The books he’s authored and co-authored include The Immune Power Personality; Your Defense Against Cancer ; Self-Nurture: Learning to Care for Yourself as Effectively as You Care for Everyone Else ; Healing Mind, Healthy Woman ; For Thou Art With Me: The Healing Power of Psalms ; Joe Torre’s Ground Rules for Winners ; and, hot off the Johns Hopkins University Press, Mind-Body Unity: A New Vision for Mind-Body Science and Medicine, which is a wonderful, scholarly yet reader-friendly compilation of his best mind-body articles.

Formerly a staff writer for the Cancer Research Institute in New York, Henry now directs Cancer Guide Consultations, providing cancer patients with highly researched, grounded and informed information about conventional treatments and complementary therapies. For ten years now, Henry has been helping cancer patients make informed decisions, so that they can develop an integrative program that takes into consideration the best medical advice, recent research findings, and their own personal needs and beliefs.

As anyone who’s been through it knows, the competing options, modalities, treatment ideas, suggestions and missionary zeal thrown at a newly diagnosed cancer patient can be overwhelming and downright debilitating. Henry cuts through all of that with his huge brain and gentle manner. He even provides backup research abstracts to help persuade your doc about a good approach, and will network you with other helpful practitioners and organizations.

You can learn more about this wonderful service by clicking on http://www.henrydreher.com/pages/cg1.html . And you don’t have to go to New York to take advantage of this program - he can work with you by phone.

Henry is one of those people who quietly goes about his business of creating major change in health care, never calling attention to himself and very quick to praise others. But there isn’t a knowledgeable expert in the holistic health field who doesn’t admire, respect and trust this guy, implicitly and entirely. (He is married to another gifted writer, by the way - Deborah Chiel, who, among other fabulous achievements, has written my all-time favorite resource and hair-do Bible, Curly Girl: The Handbook.
