Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A comprehensive cancer guide offering an integrative approach that embraces both alternative and conventional therapies for prevention, treatment, and healing for the millions of cancer patients in the United States, their families, and their caregivers.

The first layperson’s guide to using vitamins, minerals, and herbs to support traditional cancer therapy, the Definitive Guide to Cancer helps patients and their caregivers understand the causes, symptoms, and diagnosis of cancer and how to offset the side effects of conventional medicine. With clear and empowering advice, the authors provide conventional cancer treatment plans and in-depth recommendations in regard to diet, lifestyle, and nutritional supplements for 21 specific cancers. The inclusive approach of this authoritative reference addresses both conventional and alternative therapies; updates throughout include revised cancer findings and statistics, expert interviews, and real-life stories from practitioners, patients, and caregivers. In addition to offering a wealth of scientific data, this guide also counsels patients to achieve deep healing through a mind-bodyspirit approach.
