PRAISE FROM JOSEPH MERCOLA, DO: "Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S., and most conventional treatments are tragically ineffective and counterproductive ... this book will provide you with a valuable perspective that you will likely not hear about from your oncologists." -Joseph Mercola, DO, Founder, Mercola.com, World's Most Visited Natural Health Site.
ONE-ON-ONE WITH 15 CANCER DOCTORS: If you traveled the world for appointments with fifteen cancer doctors, you would discover many of the cutting-edge treatments used to heal the body from cancer. You would also spend thousands of dollars on hotels, plane tickets, and medical appointment fees-not to mention the time that it would take to embark on such a journey. Even if you had the time and money to travel, would the physicians have enough time to answer all of your questions? Would you even know which questions to ask?
In this long-awaited book, health care journalist Connie Strasheim has done all the work for you. She conducted intensive interviews with fifteen highly regarded doctors who specialize in cancer treatment, asking them thoughtful, important questions, and then spent months compiling their information into organized, user-friendly chapters that contain the core principles upon which they base their approach to healing cancer. The practitioners interviewed are medical, osteopathic and naturopathic doctors, trained in a variety of integrative approaches to cancer treatment. All aspects of treatment are covered, from anti-neoplastic (anti-cancer) remedies and immune system support, to dietary and lifestyle choices that result in the best outcomes for patients. The book also offers unique insights into healing, such as the pros and cons of different treatments and how to intelligently use chemotherapy.
It discusses patient and practitioner challenges to healing, factors that affect healing, treatment outcomes and how to effectively combine multiple medical strategies to obtain the best results. Finally, it offers helpful insights to the friends and families of those coping with cancer. Cancer treatment is complex and controversial, and this book puts the treatment information you need in the palm of your hand.
