“Bringing a wad of contradictory commentary from the internet into your oncologist can trigger unexpected hostility, and in the chaos of competing fads, it can be nearly impossible to discern what is vital and what must be avoided at all costs. There is an enormous unmet need for relatable, valid, clear, and helpful advice for people after cancer treatment is complete and patients are all too often abandoned to the rocky road of survivorship. Drawing on her own experience as both a practitioner and a patient, Dr Rothenberg ably navigates the world of care and cure with the effortless encouragement of a real pro who really knows and can help you understand what’s needed to step into a brighter and better future.”

“Dr. Rothenberg’s compendium for cancer survivors and thrivers presents a rejuvenative and restorative strategy for those entering the post-treatment phase, a strategy often missing in the allopathic paradigm. It also offers a pathway toward improving “healthspan,” or the time one thrives in health. This is a comprehensive book in its coverage of diet, nutrition, exercise, sleep, mental health and the palette of integrative possibilities available to all of us who seek healthy, fulfilling lives.”

“….The intimate disclosures embedded in her exceptionally rigorous, evidenced framework of clinical savvy and experience, all those doable recommendations, her crisp, substantial ideas for supportive care strategies ……this book will enduringly touch and engage every cancer survivor quickly and uniquely…… Her words, chiseled out of the fuss and rattle of so much conversation about surviving and thriving, shifts everything and illuminates the terrain. This book is authentic, accessible and compassionate.  It robustly claims space as the best counsel in the land on this tough issue.”

“In my experience, the last day of anti-cancer treatment is highly anticipated and is celebrated by many patients. However, at the time of their first follow up visit, many report that they are surprised that they are feeling anxious and insecure-as if they are waiting for “the other shoe to drop.” The joy that they had experienced at the completion of treatment had been interrupted by a feeling of being untethered or out of control because they were no longer actively fighting the cancer. These difficult feelings may also be compounded by lingering effects of treatment. This book is a wonderful tool to assist patients in getting through the exciting and challenging post treatment phase and may help in taking on the role of survivor.  Dr. Rothenberg has experienced cancer from “both sides of the johnny ” and she is able to benefit countless others by sharing her vast knowledge with this book.”

“Personally and professionally, I highly recommend Dr. Amy’s book. I have had many family members and friends who have been cancer survivors and thrivers.  The quality of their lives was greatly enhanced through the use of nutrition, exercise, meditation, and a myriad of other natural and holistic measures. This book and all of Dr. Amy’s approaches create a treatment plan that dovetails and compliments conventional cancer care and most importantly encourages physical vitality, mental clarity, and emotional balance vital for all of us on our healing journeys.”

 “When cancer enters our lives, we look for people who listen, understand, and provide guidance for making wise decisions in this new and unknown land. Reading this book is like sitting down for tea with a friend who’s been where you’re headed. Amy Rothenberg ND has lived what she writes about as a patient, as a family caregiver, and as a medical provider. She knows and respects what different systems of medicine have to offer and her own life shows that we can weave them together. She is also a wise coach inspiring us to find the unique strengths we can bring to our own health and medical challenges. This is mind-body medicine at its best! “

“With massive advancements in cancer treatments, more patients than ever before are entering survivorship. All too often patients are overwhelmed by care when they receive a cancer diagnosis, and just as quickly they may suffer a lack of support during survivorship. Dr. Rothenberg’s voice and expertise provide companionship, encouragement, support, and invaluable advice for both patients and practitioners. It is clear that she embodies her advice and what a privilege it is to have her share her gifts for this population!”

Lindsay Rockwell DO

“Dr Rothenberg’s grasp of the spectrum of care cancer patients go through is impressive and necessary. She brings the weight and depth of her personal journey as a cancer patient and survivor to the science and spiritual ground of her decades long practice of natural medicine. Her synthesis and integration of these two areas, often construed as disparate, is nuanced, knowledgeable, intimate and commanding.”

NASHA WINTERS, ND, FABNO

“Early on in the book, Dr. Rothenberg confides how “eye opening to be in the patient chair after so many years as a doctor.” Those words and that firsthand experience are so potent. Though I did it in reverse order—patient with cancer first, later to become a doctor—there is so much resonance of how we met cancer and how we choose to live, experience, and share life. Dr. Rothenberg speaks of empowerment, no matter the outcome, and takes docere (Doctor in Latin meaning teacher) to the next level. And what a great teacher she is—able to articulate a difficult subject with a soothing voice, offering light on what at times is an obscure and darkened path. Thank you for walking with us on this journey and offering a solid set of tools to guide the way.”

"Dr. Rothenberg is a practitioner who I have admired for a very long time. So, I am not surprised that she is filling the gap in conventional cancer care. In this book, Dr. Rothenberg is empowering cancer survivors with an answer to the question, "What now?" In my experience as an integrative specialist in cancer treatment, the biggest misstep in conventional treatment is that patients are without direction as to what interventions to make and keep for the long term. I am so happy Dr. Rothenberg has stepped up when she saw the need for education for people who need it most.”

"When an oncologist reported I had stage 4 aggressive double hit B-cell lymphoma, my approach was for the doctors to take care of the treatment and for me to focus on supporting myself through the treatment. Dr. Rothenberg provided the guidance I needed during a very confusing and frightening time. As a cancer survivor in remission, her prescriptions are an integral part of my life. Her depth of knowledge, personal experience, and authenticity is a gift I shall be ever grateful for. That she has documented all this in a book for others is an indispensable resource for cancer survivors and their families."

As the wife of one of her patients, and the sister of another, both cancer survivors thriving under her care, I can testify to the power of these approaches. Dr. Rothenberg’s simple, clear, proven, and powerful recommendations for physical, emotional, and cognitive health are an essential complement to the protocols your oncologists prescribe. As a bonus, caregivers also benefit from Dr Rothenberg’s exercise, nutrition and lifestyle recommendations. I feel better than I have in years. Read this book to thrive, long after your cancer treatments end.”

“I was on a roll. Three continents and four countries a week. In the U.S alone three medical practices: NY, Chicago & San Francisco. Production crews, TV programs, radio shows in multiple countries. In Ecuador I was Chair of Osteopathic Medicine & Chief Science Officer for the first Osteopathic medical hospital in that country. Then I hit a wall. It was shattering. Four death experiences, five surgeries, with severe anesthesia and medication reactions. I was bedridden for two years, a prisoner in my own body. But the winds of resurrection blow from a place of death and rebirth. Dr. Rothenberg’s book is that wind. It’s a road map, a way back. Sooner or later someone in your family is going to face cancer. You Finished Treatment, Now What? is a must read.”
