Case of the Disappearing Cancer, The

Case of the Disappearing Cancer, The

And other stories of illness and healing, life and death

Stories about finding healing when you are ill, finding healing in the midst of traumas, finding healing at life's end.


CATEGORIZED IN

Everyone has experienced some suffering in their life, often through illness, and, of course, everyone wants to heal. This is a book about healing based on Louis Heyse-Moore's forty years of experience as a doctor, counsellor and a Somatic Experiencing trauma therapist.
The author believes healing is much more than just physical cure. Over the many years that he has worked with ill people, it has become obvious to him that their body, mind and spirit are all affected when they are sick. Many doctors are excellent at treating and curing physical illnesses but may miss the other aspects of healing. The Case of the Disappearing Cancer attempts to redress the balance.
A word picture is worth a million theoretical abstractions. A good story is one that engages us at gut level. Not just thinking, but also feeling, emoting, remembering, relating; soulfulness in other words. It makes us come alive. This book does just that.

REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

Everyone has experienced some suffering in their life, often through illness, and, of course, everyone wants to heal. This is a book about healing based on Louis Heyse-Moore’s forty years of experience as a doctor, counsellor and a Somatic Experiencing trauma therapist. ~ BrumbySunstate

For: Heyse-Moore, L.H. (2009) Speaking of Dying. London Jessica Kingsley Publishers. This is a very practical guide to counselling in the palliative care setting.. It is clearly written and well set out and the experience of the author as a trained counsellor and palliative medicine specialist shines through... I think this would be a most useful text for anyone training in the palliative care field. ~ IAHPC, International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care News

For: Heyse-Moore, L.H. (2009) Speaking of Dying. London: Jessica Kingsley Publishers. In this excellent book, Heyse-Moore draws on his experience as a practised listener and specialist in palliative medicine... Its key strengths are the clear explanation of terminology, the short and well-organised chapters and the comprehehnsive resources contained within the appendices. Chapter Ten, on spiritual distress is especially insightful. The author draws on nearly three decades of grounded experience to make this book an excellent resource... Jessica Kingsley continues to resource our pastoral libraries with quality writing such as this. Read it, and act. ~ Revd. Dr. James Woodward, The Church Times

For: Heyse-Moore, L.H. (2009) Speaking of Dying. London: Jessica Kingsley Publishers. Written from his wealth of personal experience he offers his readers not only an invaluable guide on counselling skills in palliative care but also a sensitive presentation of the many issues involved in good care of the dying... This book will be a valuable addition to both personal bookshelves and to libraries. It will be valued by those working in palliative care and also particularly by those for whom speaking of dying remains a challenge. ~ Plus (quarterly magazine), Christian Council on Ageing

In this fascinating symposium of case history and personal experience Dr Heyse-Moore has underlined the two-way bridge between patient and physician. It is an important addition to the library of hospice medicine and palliative care. But there is more: meditate on each story separately and you may find memories of your own recalled... and brought to life. ~ Dr Tom West OBE, Former Medical Director St Christopher's Hospice.

With the skill of the age-old storyteller Louis takes us on a perambulation, a ‘walkabout’ through the songlines of his encounters and chance meetings. Using what he refers to as the ‘feel–see’ quality of the Hawaiian shaman, Louis’ layering of his painterly observations and the slow ease of his storytelling style drops us into a space where we hover between time past and time present. He knits together the broken body with the soulful healing that comes from being seen, heard, and recognised body-to-body. These seemingly simple stories work to promote ‘whole-ness’ and a sense of well-being in his readers. Louis’ mythopoetic style envelops us in the very healing process that he is describing. ~ Marian Dunlea, Jungian analyst, Somatic Experiencing trauma therapist, faculty member Marion Woodman Foundation .
