DESCRIPTION:  This is a very important book that should be read by all 
those suffering from cancer and by their relatives and friends, but it should 
also be more widely read, better to have the information in advance of an 
urgent need.  The author was diagnosed with cancer of a specially aggressive 
form and where the available treatments could introduce new cancers. In this 
book she recounts how she responded and succeeded in beating this threat. -  
Most Highly Recommended

Huge sums of money have been poured into research to find cures for the many forms of cancer, 
marking the significance of this threat. There have been many major advances and there are many 
exciting new approaches entering clinical test or completing testing. However, cancer is still a 
determined threat, with many treatments and procedures offering low probabilities of success and 
even considerable risk of serious side effects.

In the authors case, she was diagnosed with Stage-4 Cervical Cancer that is highly aggressive and 
extremely difficult to treat. It is a three month death sentence and available treatments offer both a low 
probability of success and the very real threat of treatment leading to Leukaemia. The prospects are 
acknowledged to be 100% fatal. In her early thirties at the time, this was a worst nightmare. Her 
account of how she responded is motivating, inspirational and moving. The information provided in 
this book is obviously directly applicable to her specific cancer, but it is also valuable to anyone with 
any serious medical condition, both cancers and other potentially life threatening illness, because it sets 
out an alternative approach with suggests of how to develop it to meet a specific threat.

A Chartered Physiotherapist, the author was a health professional with medical knowledge and a love of 
science which provided a basis for personal research. She threw herself into research and decided to 
create her own treatment plan. Eighteen years later she is proof of the effectiveness of her approach and 
an inspiration to others.

The book includes a protective statement that this is not a treatment plan to be followed by others and it 
may not be the answer in every case, but it is a guide to an alternative approach to just depending on a 
health service to attempt a cure of an illness that is generally acknowledged as untreatable. 

The great difficulty of health care is that there are so many competing views that are each advanced with 
passion and conviction. At the same time, people have come to accept that doctors are gods and we will 
all live forever, provided that we blindly follow what they tell us. For many, there frankly is no alternative
 because the prospect of producing a better solution than what is on offer is very poor. The author was 
fortunate in having existing medical knowledge and an ability to conduct her own research. This book 
does help to dramatically expand the number of people with an adequate base knowledge to at the very 
least constructively question offered treatment and to then consider alternatives if the answers are not 
adequate and convincing.

Over the years, medical professionals have made many claims that are later agreed to be wrong, 
dangerous, ineffective, costly, inappropriate or any combination thereof. It is relatively recently that 
researchers have come to understand that each person is unique. What may work very effectively for 
one could be very dangerous for another. Research into DNA has produced some exciting prospects 
and gone to explaining why patients can respond so differently. Hailed as being more important than 
the discovery of antibiotics, DNA-based research may be more limited than some would claim today 
but it does take us forward in developing knowledge of how to maintain and repair the human body. 
Certainly, a uniquely personal treatment plan has the potential to significantly limit possible side effects, 
minor and major.

Diet and willpower are frequently underrated. A German POW of the Soviets developed medical 
approaches based almost entirely on diet in an environment where prisoners were malnourished and 
even normally minor health problems could become fatal. At the time, even food was in short supply 
and drugs virtually non-existent, leaving him with the alternative of scavenging for food and trying 
herbal remedies mixed in with what food he could obtain. After his release from captivity, following
 Stalin's death, he developed his theories, set up a clinic and achieved some amazing successes with 
treating patients diagnosed with terminal cancers. At that point he did have access to medical supplies, 
enabling him to develop a broader approach.

Many medical professionals at the time dismissed him as a dangerous fake, rather than considering 
what in his approach might be worth duplicating or developing. That arrogance could so easily have 
proved fatal to the author because many patients, who are told that they must blindly accept what ever 
the doctors gave them, are harried even to the point of attempting to have parents jailed for defying the 
doctors. There are periodically examples where someone has defied doctors and even fled abroad to 
undertake different treatment with apparently great or total success. This may suggest a further avenue
 for research because it takes strong willpower to go your own way and that may well add a further 
ingredient for success.

Historically, science has developed on the basis of replicable experiments to prove a theory. That has 
produced some great advances in knowledge but later research has discovered that the proven theory 
was dangerously wrong. However, that has not stopped the Establishment from being violently reactive 
to this new theory, even in the face of thoroughly documented data and experimental, or actual, 
replicable proofs. It has also resulted in research being restricted in some areas, particularly into the 
understanding of willpower.

An interesting result of control groups in testing drugs has shown on many occasions that people in the 
placebo group have obtained exactly the same success rate as those receiving the drug under test. That 
suggests that the mind is able to effect change because the placebo group all thought they were receiving
 the same drug. Intriguingly this implies that will power is able to motivate natural defensive mechanisms 
which then effect the improvement, sometimes more significantly than a drug under test. 

The author has written her own provable story of how she beat cancers. That is very impressive, but the 
combination of state of mind and intelligent use of diet and alternative therapies may be the reason for 
the level of undeniable success achieved. Hope is itself a great healer and there is an adage that may also 
apply: “Cancer is what happens when the immune system is looking the other way”. Helping the immune 
system to strengthen and focus will produce impressive results for many.

Choosing a title for a book can always be a challenge and in this case the reader considering purchase 
from basic information could be forgiven for think its all about a new dieting plan, one of many offered 
every year. In the case of this book, the author has described a blended approach. that considers the body's 
nutritional requirements, the use of supplements to strength the body and its immune system, and the use 
of combinations of low toxicity drugs and alternative remedies. She has highlighted the fact that drugs 
used in combination increase their combined effectiveness. Many readers may find difficulty in fully 
understanding some of this information, but even there, it does assist greatly in asking the right questions 
of the attending medical professionals and may well prompt them to consider a more original approach 
than they might otherwise have taken.

Whatever a reader takes away from reading this book justifies the time in reading it. For some, there may 
be practical barriers because they do not have the level of knowledge or the ability to rapidly research to 
produce the successful approach taken by the author, but this is a monumental work that could prove 
enormously beneficial to a great many people. Hopefully health professionals will also read it and develop 
a more positive approach to helping patients.
