5-0 out of 5 stars The info is better than the recipes, but recipes are good too!!!
Book is very well written and organized with interesting tid bits of health advice and information. The beginning of the book outlines ingredients including veggies and herbs that have cancer fighting properties. This is the main reason why I decided to buy this book, for this info. The recipes are good too, but there are some misses, but I think it is due to my personal tastes with respect to seasoning and herbs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great resource
I was diagnosed with breast cancer this September and have just started chemo treatments.I ordered this book because I know that nutrition is one of the key cornerstones to treatement.This book has been very inspiring in terms of being able to eat really healthy, yet tasty meals.We made a batch of the magic mineral broth for me to have after my first chemo session and it is really, really tasty.

I really like the format where there is advice sprinkled throughout the recipes.There is also advise from other cancer patients on things that worked for them.Although I haven't had any change in taste yet ---- I really liked that there was a section discussing why taste buds change during treatment and things that you can do to help alleviate the symptom. ...

Product Description
SHE’S JUST LIKE THE REST OF US : overstuffed purse, always losing keys, high-maintenance hair, snack guilt after an evening binge. But she’s something different, too.

Hoda Kotb grew up in two cultures—one where summers meant playing at the foot of the ancient pyramids and another where she had to meet her junior prom date at the local 7-Eleven to spare them both the wrath of her conservative Egyptian parents. She’s traveled the globe for network television, smuggling videotapes in her shoes and stepping along roads riddled with land mines. She’s weathered the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, and a personal Category 5 as well: divorce and breast cancer in the same year. And if that’s not scary enough, she then began cohosting the fourth hour of Today with Kathie Lee Gifford. (Oh, c’mon, KLG! That’s funny . . . put down the huge pour of Chardonnay and laugh with us.)

HODA reads just like Hoda—light, funny, positive, and positively inspiring. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Easy Enjoable Read
This was a great book. It was so easy to read, and I wanted to be friends with her by chapter two!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent read
Let me begin by saying that I do not watch NBC therefore I did not know who Hoda was until I read this book, sorry, but that's the truth. The good part is that I got to know her through this book, so I had no clue what I was getting into until I actually opened the book and started reading. And I have to say that it's been a great experience since the moment I picked it up.

Its a great read, loved every chapter. Thank you for sharing Hoda, I will make sure to pass the book along to my mom and sis.

5-0 out of 5 stars Inspirational
I was so excited to have the opportunity and pleasure to delve into this thoughtful, enjoyable and honest account of Hoda's life.I found so many "I do thats" I felt like I was right there experiencing it myself.Thank you Hoda for trusting your fans with your thoughts and experiences!

5-0 out of 5 stars From like to love...
I really like the Hoda Kotb that I see each morning on TV, but I loved the Hoda in this book.

I was truly inspired by Hoda's story, her unmistakable and unshakable love of family and friends, and her "forward" thinking. Even though the word "cancer" is in the title, this book it a happy and humorous read, worthy of being a a gift to your best friend for no reason at all!

5-0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed It
Thank you Hoda for a delightful book. Your honesty and openess is a breath of fresh air. The story of your struggle with breastcancer will be an encouragement to those who are going through their own battles.

I felt your love for your family, friends and co-workers throughout the book. You are a bright light.

Beautiful book Hoda. ... Read more

Purchased this book for my sister battling cancer.My niece is her primary
caregiver and has been reading the book. She rates it as a book she cannot put down.I plan to order one for me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cancer can be beaten-this is the way
I am a 48 year old former engineer who knew little about cancer when my wife was diagnosed with RCC in 2008. Like others we followed the docs instructions and rushed into surgery. Had I known then what I know now, we probably would have avoided the nephrectomy. Two months after surgery the cancer had metastasized to the lung and within three months it was in the liver and lymph nodes. Our experience with conventional treatment was a horrifying journey. My wife took a drug for just four days and I thought I was watching her die before me. That's when I began trying to find a way to save her. 'Beating cancer with nutrition' was an invaluable tool in our future. It is packed with valuable insight into the cancer epidemic and the industry that it developed as well as the importance of lifestyle choices that allowed cancer cells to overpower your immune system. The book is designed to educate the reader on optimal nutrition to improve the outcome in medically treated cancer patients. Patrick Quillin presents a mountain of useful information and recipes to boost the immune system and strengthen the body with diet. It's a very valuable resource and a good read, I can't emphasize this enough. I used what I learned from this book to further my research into natural therapy and combined what I had learned from the book as adjuvant therapy with natural supplementation for my wife. Between May 2009 and March 2010, my wifes tumor growth was reversed and she is now cancer free without suffering the horrible side effects of synthetic drug treatments or any permanent cellular damage. Our experience taught us so much that I have a book in publishing now called 'Cancer shouldn't kill you just make you smarter' and hope to have it at Amazon.com soon. I thank Patrick Quillin whole-heartedly for his book, it was the first step in my wifes cancer making me smarter, being able to reverse RCC and changing our lifestyle to prevent its reoccurance. If you yourself or someone you love has been diagnosed with cancer, you MUST get this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beating Cancer with Nutrition
This book is a MUST READ for anyone who has or knows someone with cancer OR chronic yeast infections OR chronic sinus infections. Crammed with information about how to make chemo and radiation more selective (kill cancer cells better) without damaging the surrounding good cells. And how to build your immune system up to help fight the cancer and help through the pain and nausea and all the side effects that go with treatment.

It is laced throughout with short stories of patients with various types of cancer and how they survived, even end stage cancers, and how they did it. There are also stories of those who didn't make it and some reasons as to why they didn't.

There are recipes and menus, a section on foods and supplements that help fight cancer, lists of doctors who can help with nutrition, a list of special cancer clinics, places to order organic foods, how to deal with side effects (both allopathic and naturopathic treatments), a list rating foods from the best to the worst, what causes cancer, what feeds cancer - SUGAR, and LOTS of ENCOURAGEMENT which is so important and helpful.

5-0 out of 5 stars Clear good sense and vitalital information.
I have been battling cancer for two years now and unfortunately have been diagnosed with a recurrence.I have stayed with main stream treatments but was really dissapointed with the lack of advice or even interest in nutrition amongst the hospital staff. After a long search I chose this book to be my guide. the premis is simple: a high percentage of cancer patients die from malnutrition; poor nutrition causes cancer and good nutrition can not only support treatment but enhance the immune system and adversly affect cancer cell growth.

The book is really clearly laid out. There is a sysnopsis of the principals in the first chapter and then very detailed information, heavily backed up by research.the diet itself is easy to follow and the recipes excellent.

I strongly recommend this book. Since using it I have felt very fit and full of energy and haven't suffered side effects from the chemo drugs.This book is good sense, well explained and, I believe, potentially life saving.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Nutrition Education for Cancer patients and the Healthy Individuals!
Dr. Quillin's book was an eye opening and educational experience in nutrition.I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in July 2007.It was difficult in deciding where to start and Beating Cancer with Nutrition was where I started.The Audio CD is a easy high point overview but one must read the book from cover to cover to get all the fine detail.The book help me understand the basic fundamental of good nutrition.I learned so much about ingredients and what to avoid when purchasing processed food.Dr. Quillin mentioned many things that are unhealthy for our bodies and how the bodies cannot process man made chemicals, preservatives and substitutes.The useful receipes are used in some of our meals and I keep the book close by the kitchen for reference.The whole family eat healthy now that we've acquired the valuable knowledge.

During my journey to remission, use the nutrition philosphy written and spoken (Audio CD) by Dr. Quillin and still practice them today in a healthier diet.I'm CANCER FREE three years later, well informed on nutrition and will practice what I've learned forever.

I recommend Dr. Patrick Quillin's book for everyone who is assisting a cancer patient in their journey to remission as well as for those who would like a better insight to healthier nutrition. ... Read more

Product Description

Now hailed as an American classic, Tropic of Cancer, Henry Miller’s masterpiece, was banned as obscene in this country for twenty-seven years after its first publication in Paris in 1934. Only a historic court ruling that changed American censorship standards, ushering in a new era of freedom and frankness in modern literature, permitted the publication of this first volume of Miller’s famed mixture of memoir and fiction, which chronicles with unapologetic gusto the bawdy adventures of a young expatriate writer, his friends, and the characters they meet in Paris in the 1930s. Tropic of Cancer is now considered, as Norman Mailer said, “one of the ten or twenty great novels of our century.”
Amazon.com Review
No punches are pulled in Henry Miller's most famouswork. Still pretty rough going for even our jaded sensibilities, butTropic of Cancer is an unforgettable novel ofself-confession. Maybe the most honest book ever written, thisautobiographical fiction about Miller's life as an expatriate Americanin Paris was deemed obscene and banned from publication in thiscountry for years. When you read this, you see immediately how muchmodern writers owe Miller. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Paris Revisited
Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller is a book that is best read when you are young...say of the 20-something set.And while it is true that there are a number of books that fall into this range (Look Homeward, Angel among others), Miller's Tropic books (both Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn) do hold a certain value where a return read through years is warranted.Like all good literature, and Tropic of Cancer is certainly that, there are aspects of the book that ring more true depending on how far in years you are along when you return to it.

If Tropic of Cancer has any downside it might be Miller's take on women in general.Still, it is a worthy read and like so many other books (Ulysses (Gabler Edition), Lolita (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition) (Vintage International (Pb)) , etc), it is a book that changed the course of fiction.However, if you are of the ilk to want a novel with structure then you may steer clear of the Tropics as neither book (Cancer or Capricorn) follow any real plotline.But if you want to read a book stripped bare of literary tricks and told in a bold, truthful style then this novel is for you.

3-0 out of 5 stars Seedy but genius at times
What to say about reading Henry Miller's work? They are like stumbling, drunk, through a dark, seedy alley when suddenly the prose turns into some of the most elegant and energetic copy you've seen-- then, like the drunkard having a brief lucid moment this flash of genius passes leaving you waiting for the next great passage.

This is an earlier and longer work than Quiet days in Clichy (1934 versus 1956) even though both novels cover some of the same events. To me, his prose was much more developed in his later work.

This book was a little rough around the edges but definitely still worth the read.

4-0 out of 5 stars Tropic of Cancer
If you enjoy writing full of amazing visuals, brash words, and honest diction don't leave this book out.It was left out of american publication for quite some time because it was tide up in obscenity trials, but if you've dabbled in books that search to understand sexual behaviors you shouldn't be surprised.There is a lot of stream-of-consciousness, so if that sort of plot-less writing bothers you steer clear, but it mainly depicts a man struggling to be a writer.Referenced in many other books and noted to be one of the greatest works of literature it's hard to pass by even if it's not your style.

5-0 out of 5 stars A blood transfusion!
Tropic of Cancer is Miller`s first book and remains his greatest book. Miller wanted to be a writer, but he could not find any publisher. When he was 37 years old, he was sent to Paris to start living in artist's life. Here his anger was reached the limit and he exploded. I have never read such deep expression of one's true feelings and emotions. While this book became international best seller, it had been burned for 30 years in his own country.
If you are not satisfied your life and if you thirst for life, you must read this book. The last 20 pages are purely masterpiece.

1-0 out of 5 stars Nin and Kerouac without talent, ethos or logos
I understand and respect the influence Miller had on later writers particularly Kerouac and Nin, but Miller's style and his willingness to bore readers with tales of himself are not of themselves good or even interesting. Miller's impact on later writers may be likened to the impact of WWI on WWII. The influence is a fact but it does not follow that it is necessarily a good thing.

Kerouac's writing worked because he was exceptionally bright, had a good command of the English language, was a perceptive and sensitive observer of the human condition and was concerned with things other than himself and his bodily functions. Miler is far less talented, significantly less aware of the world around him, a poor observer of others, obsessed about his own physical needs and completely unconcerned with others. Thus while reading Kerouac can be a delight, reading Miller is a bore. Miller's alleged literary skill is rarely on display in his works and largely absent from this book. He is simply inept at writing dialogue and any attempt to put Miller in the same class as writers such as Hemingway is a bad joke. Miller's writing was not formed by exceptional talent but by shortcuts needed as a result of his inadequacies as a writer. You will find the occasional good turn of phrase but you will more often find poorly conceived attempts such as the following:

"That was enough for me. I turned at once to Marcelle and began to flatter the ass off her. we stood at the corner of the bar, pretending to dance, and mauled each other voraciously. Jimmie gave me a big horse-wink and nodded his head approvingly. She was a lascivious bitch, this Marcelle and pleasant at the same time."

This is good writing? No, it is not. If Miller were alive today he would likely be writing Penthouse letters, with the same or less skill as others. If you took excerpts of Miler's writing and submitted them as your own for criticism they would be rightly blasted, yet when Miller's authorship is attributed to them they become gems? No, they do not. Literary snobbery is as responsible for Miller's reputation as anything else. He became popular in the literary world because he tried some new things (to cover his poor writing skills), because of his sexual meanderings, and because he was banned. Had he never been banned, he likely would have descended to his correct role in the literary world.

Miller possessed an impoverished vocabulary of dirty words. The B word, C word and F word are used incessantly, repetitively and rarely to good purpose. His knowledge of sex was amateurish, his writing about sex was juvenile. He was not a sexual man, just a horny man. If you want good erotic writing from someone who was a sexual person, read Nin. Miller's much noted sexual passages are uninteresting, superficial and quite simply boring. Yes, I understand he blazed a trail and without Miller we might not have had the far superior writings of Nin, but it is nonetheless no reason to read Miller, unless you are an academic who is studying literary history. If not, read Nin. Read Kerouac.

Was Tropic of Cancer important in the literary world? Yes. Was it good? No. For some reason literary critics seem incapable of distinguishing between these two concepts.

I and many others also do not care for Miller's writing in large because we have no interest in or respect for him as a man, and his writing is, if nothing else, about himself. I cannot imagine going to dinner with him. His world revolved around himself to the exclusion of any concern about others. His politics were immature, poorly formed and almost childish, much as were his attitudes toward women.

Miler did at least exhibit some honesty and show some self awareness when he wrote "Life, said Emerson, consists in what a man is thinking all day. If that be so, then my life is nothing but a big intestine." ... Read more

Dr. Walsh's book has been very helpful as my husband has gone through the process of finding out he has prostate cancer, to having a prostatectomy.He is going to have radiation soon, and the book explains all the options, and what to expect before, during and after each treatment.My husband's Dr. recommended it, and we have referred to it often.

This is an excellent book on prostate cancer. It was recommended by our physician and is a great guide for the patient who is having to make treatment choices. Clearly written, easy to understand, good explanations, couldn't be better. It is good to have this information at hand as it reaffirmed my husband's choice concerning treatment options. It clearly informed him of the risks and benefits of each treatment and addressed the best treatment plan for his rating of prostate cancer. Again, an excellent book, well written and easy for the average person to understand.

Excellent book to read when initally diagnosed with cancer.Particularly helpful for care givers and family members.This book helps you build your "cancer team"

1-0 out of 5 stars Not helpful for all cancer patients
Having myself gone through 3 treatments for Stage 3 cancer, I think this author has missed the reality of this disease.He dances around the issue, and treats cancer as if it's a simple cold, entirely curable, and also avoidable; eluding that we have greater control over this disease than we currently do.Problem is, cancer is one of the few things in our lives about which we cannot decide whether we want it or not.It simply begins and advances, and there we are trying to deal with it, most of us frightened and angry.Viewing cancer as such allows one to deal with it with eyes open and create/accept more realistic decisions.Had I to do it over here's some things I'd do: get in with the best Oncology Group available, these are your frontline allies in the battle.Begin seeing a biochem-focused Pyschiatrist because chemo, radiation, and cancer do serious things to your brain and drugs help counteract this.Take a sabbatical from any job requiring math, analysis, decisions, or short-term memory; between the stress and the physical trauma, there's not much left for job-related thinking, let alone attendance. Don't pretend this isn't happening, it is and you have the right to approach it logically, no matter what your family, friends, therapist, etc want for their own peace of mind.I wish those dealing with cancer the very best of everything.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected.
Definitely not what I expected.More of an emphasis on alternative treatments & the mind/body connection. Some info on vitamins.
The author makes it VERY clear he is STRONGLY against conventional treatment and makes it sound like something from the Spanish Inquisition. As someone currently going through conventional treatment, I found this book counterproductive and would NOT recommend it for anyone currently going through treatment.Even if you just read the sections on stress, mind/body, & vitamins, I still wouldn't recommend it! There are better books out there!Don't waste your money unless you are specifically looking for basic alternative treatment info.

I NEVER write reviews, but here it is:The afternoon of the day I go the news that I had two kinds of cancer, I sat in the book store looking at the "cancer shelf".What to choose?Any book about my particular cancer, just frightened me to death. My hand pulled out this little book.It divided ones life into eight pieces of pie, and gave help and examples...a smorgasbord...of ideas in each area.It considers dealing with doctors, medical choices, spirituality, diet, exercise, etc. It does not dictate, but gives choices, putting the reader in charge...empowering. I have given this book to so many people, and all of them have found it very useful.My cancer is now ten years in the past, but, should I relapse, I will reach for this book again.

Product Description
Dr. Keith Block is at the global vanguard of innovative cancer care.As medical director of the Block Center for Integrative Cancer Treatment in Evanston, Illinois, he has treated thousands of patients who have lived long, full lives beyond their original prognoses.Now he has distilled almost thirty years of experience into the first book that gives patients a systematic, research-based plan for developing the physical and emotional vitality they need to meet the demands of treatment and recovery.

Based on a profound understanding of how body and mind can work together to defeat disease, this groundbreaking book offers:

•Innovative approaches to conventional treatments, such as “chronotherapy”–chemotherapy timed to patients’ unique circadian rhythms for enhanced effectiveness and reduced toxicity

•Dietary choices that make the biochemical environment hostile to cancer growth and recurrence, and strengthen the immune system’s ability to attack remaining cancer cells

•Precise supplement protocols to tame treatment side effects, relieve disease-related symptoms, and modify processes like inflammation and glycemia that can fuel cancer if left untreated

•A new paradigm for exercise and stress reduction that restores your strength, reduces anxiety and depression, and supports the body’s own ability to heal

•A complete program for remission maintenance–a proactive plan to make sure the cancer never returns

Also included are “quick-start” maps to help you find the information you need right now and many case histories that will support and inspire you.Encouraging, compassionate, and authoritative, Life over Cancer is the guide patients everywhere have been waiting for.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous
Dr. Block has written the most comprehensive in depth statement on the steps needed to
deeply alter the body's terrain and to optimize the power of treatment drugs to sustain life. He has affirmed through YEARS and YEARS of research and study the best approaches to use to treat cancer effectively. His voice is clear, kind and focused solely on what will work for each individual patient.Working with him and his staff has already been a remarkable experience for me and I have just begun my journey. Most doctors are ignorant of the power and research available on supplements, diet and exercise--specific regimens that increase one's life span while improving one's quality of life. This man is the smartest most knowledgeable doctor in the area of integrative cancer research and cancer care I have ever known.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Approach That Does It All
Keith Block is brilliant, thorough,and thoughtful and this book is a gift to all of us in the cancer community.He offers those of us who have long believed that the big three of Surgery, Radiation, and Chemotherapy cannot be the whole answer to a cellular, molecular disease, a comprehensive way to understand and individualize treatment.Combining warmth and compassion with research-based approaches to nutrition, supplements, exercise and mind-body approaches, Block grounds himself in a "middle way" that honors the importance of traditional chemotherapy while integrating the most highly researched approaches in the non-traditional and alternative domains.Where other books I have read advance a range of options that are seductive but lack a solid base of outcome evidence, Block uses an incisive scientific mind to move effortlessly among the worlds of chemotherapy, chinese herbs, nutrition, supplements, and mind-body techniques.In addition, at a time when the cancer industrial complex has traded the concept of healing for conveyance of information, tests and techniques, Blocks humanity and deep resonance with the psychological realities of this very frightening disease restores this critical healing element and puts a large "safety net" under all of us.

Block may well be the most impressive integrative practitioner in the country and this book is a testament to his thirty-year effort to unlock some of the mysteries of how this pernicious disease operates. Right now, as best I can determine, Life Over Cancer sets the standard for integrative oncology and is in a class of its own.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cancer book
I have found a lot of useful information in this book. It is not always layed out in the most logical manner, but is still very useful. I intend to follow most of the recommendations to prevent recurance of my breast cancer.

5-0 out of 5 stars A book for hope
I stumbled upon this book, after reading several other cancer books, and found it to be the most thorough and hopeful book on the subject.There is certainly no shortage of opinions regarding the treatment of cancer, but this book provided me with a sense of comfort that there really was somebody that had done the research and had clear opinions about how to regain one's good quality of life.In a time of uncertainty and possibly fear, the shear weight of the research that went into this book made a huge difference to me.

5-0 out of 5 stars From the Father of Integrative Oncology
Dr. Keith Block - referred to by Andrew Weil as the "father" of integrative oncology - has created the best cancer guidebook ever written (and I've reviewed plenty of them in my seventeen years as a Cancer Patient Advocate and survivor of three separate primary cancers -- kidney, colon and prostate). Dr. Block's 600-page book "is the program every cancer patient deserves in order to have the best chance for recovery and restoration of health," states Weil, who wrote the foreword to Life Over Cancer. I couldn't agree more!

I have known of Dr. Block's international reputation as a clinician, researcher and educator - he's also the editor of a leading medical journal, Integrative Cancer Therapies - because we serve together on a National Cancer Institute editorial review board dealing with Complementary and Alternative Medicine (Google PDQ CAM).I'm one of two Patient Advocates on this panel of otherwise noted doctors and scientists.But it was only recently when my prostate cancer appeared again in my left pelvic wall that I came to know what a remarkably unique doctor Keith Block really is.Having a clear, accessible "Radiation Support Program," outlined in his book, was enormously helpful at the start of my Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy at UCLA, but I knew I couldn't stop with just reading.I knew I had to get on a plane and get to Evanston (just north of Chicago) and experience The Block Center for Integrative Cancer Treatment for myself.And what an experience it was:two days of non-stop sessions with the most informative doctors, nutritionists, physical therapists, and mind-spirit counselors I have ever met under one roof.

And yes, I did come away with some new supplements and nutraceauticals which I wasn't taking before, but that's because Dr. Block and his accommodating staff are willing to take the time to explain exactly what Scutelleria baicalensis is, for example, and how this and the other supplements that were recommended for me can help me during this stage of my treatment. The Block Center, I learned, only began to sell supplements after they saw first-hand the disparity in quality and potency that exist in the supplement market, not such a surprise when one is aware that the FDA does not regulate or monitor the quality of "dietary supplements!" Many years ago - in fact years before most other cancer centers were doing so - the Block Center ran tests, known as "terrain panels," on patients and then recommended specific supplements to correct any imbalances.Some patients did extremely well, however, others saw little or no improvement and, in some cases, their blood levels worsened.It soon became clear that because supplement quality and potency varied, it was impossible to make a blanket recommendation for just any supplement on the market with the expectation that the quality and potency will meet acceptable standards. Thus, I learned, the products the Block Center sells are formulated by Dr. Block with no ingredients included that cancer patients shouldn't be taking - and their formulations are placed into independent testing for quality, purity, potency and absorbability.

The CENTER'S "Anti-cancer Diet" and the basic "Block Center Core Diet Plans" are worth the price of Life Over Cancer alone, but added to that are very helpful chapters on Physical Care and Mind and Spirit Care as well.All of this sound advice is patient-centered and is not just scientifically-based, but sensitively based at the same time.

I know of no better single volume than this for helping cancer patients boost their biology and enhance their treatment programs, be it surgery, chemo or radiation.With Dr. Keith Block there is always more that can be done, and he and his staff at the Evanston, Illinois Block Center leave no stone unturned.Your cancer care can cost tens - even hundreds - of thousands of dollars, but I promise you there will be no better expenditure of $25 than the purchase of this book.
I wish you good reading and good health.--Carl Douglas Rogers, Patient Advocate, Los Angeles, CA

5-0 out of 5 stars perfect cookbook for oncology
The "What to Eat During Cancer Treatment" book is exactly what I was looking for.It has simple tasty recipes of which I have used many.The beef and barley soup is delicious.I made it in my crockpot and froze individual servings.The book also contains tips for the caregiver.The book is published by The American Cancer Society.I ordered a couple other cookbooks for cancer patients but I use this one. I really like it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Any undergoing cancer treatment needs this
What to Eat During Cancer Treatment offers a comfort-food cookbook for people undergoing cancer treatment, offering recipes organized not by type but by side effect. From dishes for nausea and diarrhea to those for sore mouth and difficulty swallowing or taste alterations, this packs in dishes high in nutrition and appeal alike. Any undergoing cancer treatment needs this.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must for Anyone Starting Chemo
I sent this book to my parents (they are both in their 80s) before my dad started his first chemo treatment. I think it not only gave them good ideas, it gave them some peace of mind too. I think they felt more prepared for whatever was to come. Well worth the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cancer cook book
This book was a godsend.Nothing tasted right.This book helped find "tasty" alternatives and provided an understanding of how to cope.

5-0 out of 5 stars Extremely helpful both professionally and personally!!!
I am a speech pathologist in an acute rehabilitation hospital and I would greatly recommend this cookbook.I work with patients who have a variety of medical issues, but recently we've seen an increase the number of patients with brain tumors, or with a history of cancer. Because I work with the patient's swallowing safety I often discuss their nutrition and eating habits.I had one patient in particular whose sense of smell and taste had been altered due to their chemo treatment a year prior and he had been losing weight steadily since then.I got in contact with a dietitian with the American Cancer Society who referred me to this book. I bought it immediately because I knew it answered many questions that I had been asked by patients in the past and it also gave such great suggestions for different side effects including decreased taste sensation.I showed this recipe book to that patient and his wife and made a copy of one of the recipes (The Blueberry-Peach Crisp) for them to try. The wife made it and brought it in for the patient the next day. His wife altered it as the book suggested with increased cinnamon and he was able to taste it and enjoyed it.The patient's wife ordered this book that night.

On a more personal note, my father went through chemo and radiation and I have seen first hand how difficult it is for the patient and the caregiver to manage eating and maintaining nutrition while undergoing such a harsh treatment which takes away any natural want/yearn for food.I searched many resources at that time to attempt to help him, but nothing I found was organized in such a useful fashion as this cookbook. This book is organized into sections of suggested recipes for the various side effects that the patient may be experiencing including: nausea, diarrhea, constipation, soar mouth/swallowing deficits, taste alterations and unintentional weight loss. It also gives suggestions for dining out and a list of kitchen staples with a variety of foods to keep in your pantry to help prepare little snacks or full meals depending on the patient's wants.

As you can tell, I can't say enough about this book. It has been a great resource for me professionally and personally (My father now has a copy himself) and I definitely recommend it for people during treatment or for anyone continuing to deal with any of the symptoms after treatment.You will find not only the recipes helpful, but the added nutritional information and recommendations for aiding nutrition during/after treatment are priceless! This cookbook is truly fantastic! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Read this before you Cook
The American edition of Foods to Fight Cancer, written by Beliveau and Gingras two Canadian bio-chemists, provides scientific prose and visual diagrams readers will find both informational and useful in making dietary decisions.

The art and design of this book are exceptional.

Readers should be aware that soy should not be consumed by persons who are diagnosed with estrogen positive breast cancer.

5-0 out of 5 stars A refreshing and yet very scientific new view of cancer
In many years of cancer research I haven't found a better documented and well written book about the true nature of cancer and the daily habits that may prevent it or cure it. I recommend any cancer patient and caregiver to thoroughly study this book before undertaking any standard medical procedure. Cancer is a metabolic disease thus it is connected to nutrition. This book is an ideal guide to understand the link between cancer and what we eat. This book should be standard study material for every student, doctor, parent, teacher and social worker.

5-0 out of 5 stars Colorful, well written and well illustrated.You'll love this book.
A You Tube video sparked my interest in cancer prevention/treatment.I was amazed to find out that many of the foods we eat contain natural cancer fighting properties, some more powerful than the available drugs.I searched Amazon and found this book, "Foods to Fight Cancer."I read the reviews and decided to give it a try.I'm happy to say I wasn't disappointed. This is a great book!It's colorful, it's well written, and it's full of illustrations that enhance and clarify the text.It's a perfect example of how books should be written.It makes learning fun and easy.Best of all, I'm learning how to prevent cancer with a healthy diet of natural foods (e.g., berries, grapes, avocados, even chocolate).I can't wait to finish the book.In the meantime, I strongly suggest you purchase a copy and get started.One of the many things you'll learn is that all of us are at risk.I'll let you find out why when you read the book.

Product Description
A unique guide, like none other on the market-packed with medical information, practical tips, psychological insight, and coping strategies-to help men help the women they love through this trying time.

When Marc Silver became a breast cancer husband three years ago, he learned firsthand how frightened and helpless the breast cancer husband feels. He searched in vain for a book that would give him the information and advice he so desperately sought. Now this award-winning journalist has compiled just the kind of emotionally supportive and useful resource that he wished he had been able to consult-to give men the tools they need to help their wives, their families, and themselves through this scary, uncertain time.

In his years as a consumer journalist and veteran of the News You Can Use staff at U.S. News & World Report, Marc Silver learned what kind of information and advice on medical crises readers found most valuable. He draws on that experience as he covers in depth all the issues couples coping with breast cancer will have to face during diagnosis, treatment, and beyond. Highlights include:
- The shared experiences of other breast cancer husbands
- Guidance from top cancer doctors in the country
- Advice on when, how, and what to tell your young children
- Tips on coping with radiation and chemotherapy
- A candid discussion of sex and intimacy following breast cancer surgery

More than 200,000 women are diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States. At last, with this book, the men who love them have a road map to help them through a difficult and unprecedented journey.

This book is written by a guy, for guys.If your wife (or girlfriend) has just been diagnosed with breast cancer, your life is about to change dramatically.Marc Silver has provided us an excellent resource on how to deal with it, what to do (LISTEN! LISTEN! LISTEN!), and what to expect.We are just starting out our treatment journey -- I feel much better prepared now that I have this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Much needed
Every husband and even grown children needs to read this. It made me, the pasient also feel "normal". If you know a husband, buy it and give it to him. The cancer woman will thank you, I am sure!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Hubby wanted this!
I originally requested this book from my library for my husband.When it was time to return it, I asked him if he'd want a copy.He said that although he'd already read it that it would be nice to have it.This book is written by a guy for guys.I haven't read it at all but from what hubby took away from it, its well worth it!I HIGHLY recommend that any man that cares about a woman going through breast cancer not only get this book but that they read it from cover to cover & live it!

5-0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL RESOURCE
This is a wonderful resource. I first saw it mentioned on AOL with extensive comments and came to Amazon to buy a couple of copies for the Infusion Center at UCSF (U. of CA, San Francisco). I am not a husband of a breast cancer patient/survivor/victim but appreciate the enormous trying times of all involved. I drove a friend for a year or so for her treatments while watching her die slowly. It profoundly affected me. In Vietnam, I knew some brave individuals but don't think they're in the same galaxy with those battling breast cancer.As the book points out: it takes over lives, rearranges priorities,and just about "does in" all involved. And, this book, written for husbands and other supportive types is "right on" with topics not usually discussed. I'm immediately getting a copy to give a husband whose wife told me that from the moment she was diagnosed, he's not touched her. In addition to needing his arsh kicked, which I'm thinking of doing, this book might shape him up--the comments on intimacy and touch are so "right on." In fact, I'm emailing an oncologist friend the comments about the discussing of intimacy question. Not sure he does it. The author is candid and I could feel the pathos in what he had to say. This is not just writing for him, this is emotion. Brothers: A Somewhat True MemoirGeneral William C. Lee: Father of the Airborne : Just Plain BillGun Totin' Chaplain

Product Description
"If you love your stricken one, this is your Bible." said Denzel Koh of Brisbane, Australia after he healed his daughter's cancer using the information in a previous edition of this book.

A cancer diagnosis always causes fear. All of us have seen relatives and friends destroyed by conventional cancer treatment. Now, thanks to books like this one and the Internet, you can quickly learn what you need to know. You can heal the cancer using natural, non-toxic substances that work. What you need is a guide to cut through the overwhelming jungle of information.

This book provides that guide. The information in it has been refined over eight years using feedback from real cancer survivors about what worked for them. The author has counseled hundreds of cancer patients by phone and e-mail in 58 countries. At least 1,500 of them have recovered using his information.

He is not a medical professional. He is a "reporter" furnishing you with information that consists of "what he would do if he were you or your loved one." His coaching is available to you after you have read this book, if you need it.

Bill Henderson has published 105 free newsletters on natural cancer treatment to 8,000 subscribers all over the world, starting in 1999. The information in these newsletters has now been incorporated into this, his third book. The book is up-to-date, specific and accurate.

Bill informs you of over 140 web sites and dozens of other books and newsletters you can use to expand your knowledge of natural cancer treatment.

The self-treatments he recommends are harmless enough that you can start them immediately, without more research, if you like. They do not interfere with conventional cancer therapy, if that is your choice. In fact, they offset most of the side effects of that treatment.

"Cancer is not a disease," says Bill. "It is a reaction to what your body has experienced. Reverse that cause and the cancer goes away. Continue what you did to reverse it and it stays away."

Bill explains that there are four common characteristics of all cancers. These have been known since the 1920's:

1. Low oxygen uptake by the cells.

2. A weak immune system.

3. Toxins -- usually caused by diet.

4. Acidity -- again, usually caused by diet.

Bill Henderson's recommended regimen tracks with the knowledge for which Otto Warburg, a famous German doctor and researcher, won a Nobel Prize in 1931. He described the cancer cell and stressed the need to reverse the above four characteristics of the cancer in order to heal it.

Bill's mission to help cancer patients heal started with his experience with his former wife, Marjorie. Her ovarian cancer was treated with conventional cancer treatment from 1990 to 1994, when she died. Bill is convinced that the treatment killed her. He wants to help as many people as possible avoid her fate. ... Read more

Bill Henderson has taken most of the foot work out of researching alternative ways
to treat cancer.It is informative, easy to read and easy to follow.As a cancer patient who has utilized main stream medical intervention but always believing there is more to treating cancer than chemo and radiation...Cancer Free shows us what that more is. Since following his protocol I feel healthy and well, and my scans have been greatly improved.

5-0 out of 5 stars Top Shelf Material
Bill Henderson has provided a great public service with his ongoing cancer research and writing.Lest you think that nothing written by a non-scientist/non-doctor is worthwhile, remember there is another route: consult with the experts, read books by doctors, researchers and practitioners who are recognized in their field, and most important, be a keen observer.Henderson has done all three.As a natural care provider who wants to support cancer patients with adjunct therapies, I have spent the last 18 months reading, consulting and doing research preparatory to receiving formal training and setting up clinical internships.It is clear to me that Henderson has done his homework.Not only that, but the resources he offers here, along with his own experience as a citizen cancer consultant for years, provides him with the background to write about this subject with honesty and authenticity.

The most striking conclusion of this book is that there are hundreds of effective natural cancer treatments.[Why haven't we heard of them?Read his book to find out.]Once we understand the nature of cancer and the physiology of cancer cells and tumors, we have a logical and experiential foundation for this as a truth.Conventional cancer therapies are built around the paradigm of killing tumors and cancer cells (and attempting to do so before killing the patient).In the process, the immune system is severely burdened or destroyed...and it takes years to recover (if indeed it does).An honest assessment by those within the industry (and there are many doctors and experts from the ACS, NCI and treating patients in the field who speak out), backed up by the statistics produced by cancer science and the mainstream cancer establishment itself, is that this approach of toxic therapies has some, but only limited value.It is clearly possible that the treatment is often more dangerous than the cure.

On the other hand, there is the natural care paradigm, which is built around having a healthy immune system as the key to the body healing itself.Each of the myriad natural therapies approaches this task from a slightly different angle.Success with this approach is aboutjudiciously applying natural therapies which are built on an understanding of what causes cancer and how cancer cells function, and most importantly, boosting the immune system at every turn, an approach that makes conventional therapies more successful and less toxic.As with conventional care, the buyer must beware, do their research, and choose carefully.Not all approaches work, and not all of them work as well; and some are needlessly expensive.The consistent application of a proper combination of natural therapies alone has provided the cancer cure for many many people, using a wide variety of approaches.This is the essence of gentle cancer cures: they build and support the integrity of the body and the immune system, so that it can finish the job of healing, heal itself of cancer and stay free of cancer ongoing.

I agree with Henderson's assessment: the best way to go is to work with a health care professional who is willing and able to combine natural therapies in with any recommended conventional therapies, and to work with you, putting the patient in control, providing you with an honest assessment of the cost/benefit ratio with each piece of the protocol.Why make you the doctor?Because your long term survival depends on it...only you can adopt a lifestyle that will keep you cancer free after therapies are completed, and so the most productive partnership is one which begins building your immune system (and of course, not destroying it) while you are receiving primary care, and setting you up to succeed...to live a long and healthy life...for years and decades after primary care is done.

This book is based on the science, and includes a wealth of resources for those who want and need to be a conscious care consumer, or as Henderson puts it, 'smarter than your oncologist.'A must have book for your cancer care library.

5-0 out of 5 stars best cancer book so far
I(vern's wife)have purchased many cancer books and so far I find this to be the best. It is laid out nicely. It is to the point and easy to follow. Though it says a lot of the same things - diet, diet, diet- it gave phone numbers and addresses of where to find things and helpful web sights. Now I just have to get my husband to try the recommendations!

In January, 2009, my 84 year old mother was diagnosed with a localized, stage 1 lung cancer that was treated with targeted radiation.The tumor was not eradicated but it shrank from 5 cm to 2 cm and PET scans showed a low SUV (measure of cancer activity.)

In April, 2010, the PET scan showed that the primary tumor had not grown, but that there was a new small tumor, and the SUV measure (measures degree of cancer activity) was high.Her oncologist chose not to treat but to monitor.

This was the perfect opportunity to implement Dr. Blaylock's recommendations, along with those of Dr. David Servan-Schreiber (his book is entitled Anticancer)to see if the cancer could be stablized by supplements and nutrition alone.I'm happy to report that my mother's next PET scan four months later showed stabilization of tumor, no further growth, along with reduction of SUV measure from 10.2 to 7.3.

I whole heartedly believe in Dr. Blaylock's philosophy of cancer treatment, which is combining conventional and alternative treatments.During my mother's radiation treatment, I also implemented Dr. Blaylocks protocol, which was aimed at enhancing the effects of radiation while protecting other tissues.

Be forewarned, however, the Dr. Blaylock's book is not well organized.The chapters on protocols for specific treatment (i.e. what do do if receiving chemotherapy or radiation) are pretty straightforward but the rest of the book is not.It is impossible to follow his recommendations 100%, or else you would be taking so many supplements that you would have no room for food.It takes careful study and decision making on your part.

But I give the book five stars because I believe it is prolonging my mother's life and enhancing the quality of her life.

5-0 out of 5 stars You need this book
This is an excellent book for those who are willing to believe your body functions on what you feed it.If you have cancer or know someone who does give them a fighting chance with or without chemo.This book is well written with enough information to help you understand the chemo process as well as the cancer process plus the sources to obtain high grade supplements which the body will actually absorb.Cancer doctors do not entertain the possibility that supplements and food can make your cancer go away or become less active yet there is ample studies to support it.Pharmaceutical companies would never benefit from it so they aren't about to jump on this band wagon regardless of positive results.Buy it.Read it.Do it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome information!!!!
I would have to say that this is the most important book I have ever read, in terms of valuable information. It is not only for cancer patients, but a wealth of information on how to prevent cancer. Because contrary to popular belief, doctors cannot cure cancer, only manage it. So, it's vitally important for people to know what they can do to prevent cancer. It is especially important for women, as it talks about the harm that can come from yearly mammograms. The information I learned in this book was astounding, alarming, and impowering!Cancer is not pretty, and it's not cheap, so be proactive and take charge of your health! I wish I had this book before I was diagnosed with it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients
Although I haven't read the entire book, I have found useful tips and strategies not only for cancer patients, but for the entire family.My main interest in this book was on foods that are nutritious and likely to improve health.The book is written by a doctor and is well researched and footnoted.

5-0 out of 5 stars Susan R. Rabinowitz, author of "No Evidence of Disease"
What do you do when you are diagnosed with cancer a second time? That happened to me and I wanted answers. Was I doing something wrong to cause cancer cells to grow in my body? I needed answers. While at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Tulsa, the mother of a young patient told me about this book. She got my attention because another woman had been teaching us about excitotoxins from another of Dr. Blaylock's books. I immediately ordered this book and am glad I did.
Dr. Blaylock explains how cancer develops in your body. He suggests which foods encourage the growth of cancer and which foods inhibit cancer in the first place. He also goes into detail about supplements, including why to take them, how much to take, and what form to take them in. This book has become my so called "bible" for taking supplements.
I was very encouraged to read Suzanne Somer's book, "Knockout" because Dr. Blaylock is one of the doctors she interviewed. Through my search for Dr. Blaylock, I came across Jigsaw Health, where I now buy my supplements.
My oncologist told me, NED" - No Evidence of Disaese - and I plan to keep it that way! I got my answers in this book and I highly recommend it to you.Knockout: Interviews with Doctors Who Are Curing Cancer--And How to Prevent Getting It in the First PlaceJigsaw Complete ... Read more

Product Description
In Cancer Is Not A Disease, bestselling author and internationally acclaimed health expert, Andreas Moritz, proves the point that cancer is the physical symptom reflecting our body's final attempt to eliminate specific life-destructive causes. He claims that removing such causes sets the precondition for complete healing of our body, mind and emotions. This book confronts you with a radically new understanding of cancer - one that outdates the current cancer model. On average, the conventional approaches of killing, cutting or burning cancerous cells offer most patients a remission rate of merely 7%, and the majority of the few survivors are "cured" for just five years or less. The prominent cancer researcher and professor at the University of California (Berkeley), Dr. Hardin Jones, stated: "Patients are as well, or better off, untreated." Any published success figures in cancer survival statistics are offset by equal or better scores among those not receiving any treatments. More people are killed by the treatments than saved.Cancer is Not a Disease shows you why regular cancer treatments can be fatal, what actually causes cancer, and how you can remove the obstacles that prevent the body from healing itself. Cancer is not an attempt on your life; to the contrary, cancer is trying to save it. Unless we change our perception of what cancer really is, it will continue to threaten the life of nearly one out of every two people. This book opens a door for those who wish to turn feelings of victimhood into empowerment and self-mastery, and disease into health. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars best cancer book
This is the best book on cancer I have read to date.Not only does it give you ways to beat or prevent cancer, it is the most revealing book as to what causes cancer!!Have you ever heard someone, a loved one or friend say to you, "They don't know what caused my cancer"?I happened to me!!Well, read this book and not only might you help yourself, but you might save the life of a friend or loved one.After this book, I read the Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Flush and loved it as well.I am a cancer survivor and don't want a repeat performance!!My attitude about it to my relatives who have a negative view of these procedures is, what do I have to lose!!!It is all natural intervention so I have to do what I think is best for me.....Happy Health!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Cancer is not a disease- It's a survival mechanism
I found this book to be excellent in explaning cancer and what conditions it bring about.New ideas and things that are working to fight cancer and bring back balance. I would buy this book for anyone whom is interesting in not getting cancer or whom has it....I will purchase other books from this author..... he is referenced alot by other whom are writing books on cancer.....

3-0 out of 5 stars 'cancer is not a disease'
I was disapointed in the condition of this book, which, in my opinion, and compared to other 2nd hand books I have had from Amazon over the years, is only FAIR. It was far too expensive for the said condition & I would not buy from this seller again.

4-0 out of 5 stars Cancer is NOT a Disease
As a person who has Cancer I stumbled on this publication whilst watching a DVD on Reiki. The first part of the book deals with the causes of Cancer both physical and pschycological. Somestatistics regarding Chemo Therapy make compulsive reading. The theme of the book is that it is possible to heal yourself once you face up to your demons and excesses which have caused your condition.eg Long term rifts with people , often families can contribute in a large way to the condition which is your body warning you that this cannot continue. On the diet front I was astounded at the dangers of eating certain foods. Some things seem a bit "cranky" but that is my opinion. Others might take a different view.

Having read the book I immediately recognised certain triggers to my condition. I have dealt with long term feuds and completely changed my diet. My quality of life has changed and I feel a much more optimistic person . The title says it all Cancer is NOT a Disease it is a survival Mechanism

4-0 out of 5 stars Provocative
The premise of this book seems outrageous at first, but does have some plausibility. I can't say whether or not it is valid, but its implications are profound. The author claims that cancer cells are "on our side." That the immune system could easily destroy them if it wanted to, but chooses not to. That "without its root causes, cancer is as harmless as a simple cold." That orthodox cancer treatments fail to extend life because they are based on a faulty understanding of what cancer is. That they target symptoms, not causes. He discusses in detail the nature of cancer and its root causes and promoters, some of which may surprise you. His insights can be applied to other illnesses as well, not justto cancer.

I am skeptical about some of his claims: for his "energized oil paintings," his emotional healing by chanting, his liver flushes, etc. He tends to exaggerate and oversimplify. On page 142 he claims that "drinking the juice of broccoli that has been boiled in 16 to 20 ounces of water" can cure prostate cancer! Of course it is not that simple!

But there is also some good information here and this book deserves to be considered. Most of it makes sense and is well documented. This is not a book to agree or disagree with. It is a book to get you thinking about what cancer is and isn't. Read it critically, but read it. Then make up your own mind. ... Read more

My neighbor was just diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer at 36. So being that I am more in natural things I looked and found this book. His sister has read it and loved it. Hard diet but if he does it I think he has a chance of beating it. I also want to keep preaching to him about eternal life. He needs prayers and belief

5-0 out of 5 stars Practical and Wise Information
Bill Henderson has given us valuable information in a concise and usable way.If we go by his advice,we just might be rewarded with good health beyond our expectation.I have started on the Budwig Protocol (flaxseed oil and cottage cheese) and find myself feeling more energetic and vital.I do not have cancer that I know of but this information works both ways for all of us since all our healthy cells need oxygen but oxygen is deadly for the cancer cells.Be another proud owner of this well-written, well-researched book.Maybe the so-called "alternative medicine" should be called the "good medicine" practiced by Dr. Whitaker doing what he considers to be best for a patient.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not Certain
I purchased this book for my sister who is battling pancreatic cancer.I accidently ordered two so I spent some time reading the material before I gave it to my sister.I wasn't so sure I wanted to give it to her once I started to read the information.She had already started chemo treatments and I didn't want to frighten her any more than she probably already was, but my wise oldest sister suggested that I give it to her and let her decide whether she wants to dismiss this information or gleen out what she wants to and let the rest go.It turns out that that is exactly what she decided to do.While she did not think she would not pursue the chemo treatment, she felt that a number of the other suggestions were not new to her and she felt they were well worth trying.As with anything, she is checking with her doctor before proceeding and we are all hoping for the best.

Oh, by the way, I ended up giving the second copy of the book to a dear friend who had a total hystorectomy in early January and told her while there may be some unusual suggestions, she should take that info and use is as she saw fit as well.I have heard from her since and she was thankful for the information, most of which she had heard already from other sources.

Thank you. ... Read more

Product Description
An advice-from-the-trenches cancer survival guidebook for young women with cancer.

Actress and photographer Kris Carr thought she had a hangover, but a Jivamukti yoga class didn't provide its usual kick-ass cure. A visit to her doctor confirmed her "liver looked like Swiss cheese," covered with cancerous tumors. She entered trench warfare (wearing cowboy boots into the MRI machine, no less), vowing, "Cancer needed a makeover and I was just the gal to do it!" She began writing and filming her journey, documenting her interactions with friends, doctors, alternative "quacks," blind dates, and other women with cancer--sadly a growing group. These include hip, young women such as illustrator-author Marisa Acocella Marchetto (Cancer Vixen), Glamour writer-editor Erin Zammett (My So-Called Normal Life), MTV personality Diem Brown (Real World/Road Rules Challenge), model Sharon Blynn (founder, Bald Is Beautiful), and music manager Jackie Farry, among others.

The Learning Channel is broadcasting the premiere of Carr's unforgettable documentary, Crazy Sexy Cancer on August 29, 2007 @ 9:00-11:00pm (ET/PT).

CRAZY SEXY CANCER TIPS gathers the lessons learned and advice offered from Carr's own journey, as well as the experiences of her cancer posse. Full-color photos accompany personal stories and candid revelations in this scrapbook of advice, warnings, and resources for the cancer patient. Chapters cover your changing social life, dating, sex, and appearance; essential health tips on how to boost your immune system; recipes; medical and holistic resources; and information on young survivor support groups. The resulting book is a warm, yet informative tool for any woman newly diagnosed with the disease and for those who love them. ... Read more

Kris Carr's books are a bit irreverent when the world is crashing with a capitol "C" on your body.
I'll keep it simple.Reading her books helped me a lot. And I am sometimes an old curmudgeonella.... old cranky lady.At this point, I take anything that helps me and makes me smile, too. She did it with her book.Thank you, Kris

I received this book in September from a special friend, who also had cancer. At that time when I had just been diagnosed with an aggressive Stage III Cancer and going thru chemo and facing surgery, radiation and nasty odds of a recurrence , THIS WAS THE ONLY THING THAT MADE ME LAUGH!! OUT LOUD!!Didn't matter that she was younger or had different treatment or even if I agreed with her choices (even though I did).I was laughing and during those dark times laughter is the best medicine...kudos to you Kris Carr, can't wait to read the second one!

4-0 out of 5 stars Very empowering

I purchased this book for my sister in law that had just been told she had stage 2 breast cancer.When you have someone close to you that has been diagnosed you really don't know what to say and my niece told me about this book so I immediately ordered it for her.She has since had surgery and everything is good for her and she really appreciated the words that the book said for me.She like everyone else that is diagnosed, was mad, sad and everything in between but reading the book helped her alot and I very much appreciate that to Kris Carr the author of Crazy Sexy Cancer.

All illness comes from lack of energy, and the greatest energy drainer is mental and emotional stress, which I believe to be the root cause of all illness. Stress is one of the major elements that can erode energy to such a large and permanent extent that the immune system loses all possibility of functioning at an optimum level. The Only Answer to Cancer is a book of hope, and I want you to understand that there is always hope, no matter how bad your health situation is right now.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good starting place for making dietary changes
I found this book to be very informative with respect to dietary and supplement recommendations. Dr. Coldwell has extensive experience in the field and shares his point of view in a very matter-of-fact way. Explanations are given as to "why" certain things are true, biologically. The reader will need to decide for him/herself where to go from here.

Some of the writing is conversational and it looks like there was no editor. English is obviously not the author's first language.

Overall, I enjoyed reading the book and found many helpful suggestions in it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worthless book at best or dangerous at worst
In short the book is full of extraordinary claims in curing cancer without any shred of scientific support. The author is a rather narcissistic man who is using right wing fear mongering to promote himself and make money. He is a foreign guy who seems to be entrenched in right wing conspiracy theory; he sees conspiracy everywhere including among doctors and pharmaceutical companies. His website is full of self promotional claims about him being the foremost expert in Cancer. Dr. Coldwell (assuming he even had a legitimate doctoral degree????) has never published in any reputable or even less reputable scientific journals. The reader is led to believethe hype about his supposed cure and his diatribe about our government and scientific establishment. This guy is not to be trusted. I have no problem with alternative medicine and this man definitely gives alternative medicine a bad name. I am suspicious of a person who is enthralled in conspiracy theory and painfully short in providing crdible any evidence either for his 'novel' cure or twisted political views. He claims to be German but seems that he was not able to pull the same kind of nonsense that he is pulling in South Carolina and that is why he is in this country; the kind of political conspiracy theory he prays on may be popular in this country but definitely not in Germany. So, the last thing that I want to say isBEWARE OF THIS MAN.

4-0 out of 5 stars Informative and helpful.
The writing style in this book is not the most professional I have seen. It skips around a lot and repeats a lot. YET, the basic information is supurb. The stories about cancer victims well worth the read. A lot can be learned from this book.. BTW, it is NOT about a single cancer cure. The title can be a bit misleading. the book really shows the author to be extremely caring man who has endured most of his family with cancer. Many years of knowledge came from wanting to save his mother as a young boy. AND HE DID.. Unknown information is revealed..

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource book for good, natural health
Not only does this book cover cancer alternative treatment, it also covers health issues like weight loss, general health problems, problems for aging folks. Very excellent alternative suggestions. Plenty of web sites listed in book to investigate.

5-0 out of 5 stars We used all of his ideas to cure Stage 4 breast/liver cancer.
Thank God for people like Dr. Coldwell.We used these types of therapies to heal Stage 4 cancer, that "modern medicine" told us was impossible to cure.Please avoid chemo, radiation and surgery at all costs.Use common sense in making your own decision.
