You can Beat Lung Cancer Using Alternative/Integrative Interventions
You Can Beat Lung Cancer: Using Alternative/Integrative Interventions explores holistic and alternative treatments, including nutritional aspects, for lung cancer. Thankfully, I do not have lung cancer; I have one acquaintance that is a survivor. I remember visiting him in the hospital after part of his lung was removed.
I have not tried the methods in this book; however, author Carl O. Helvie is a 38-year lung cancer survivor. In general, they are good healthy living tips in addition to cancer specific treatments.
If you are ever diagnosed with advanced cancer, the odds are very good that your oncologist will tell you that unless you immediately consent to chemotherapy you are going to die. This is a lie! I know, I have been treating conventional chemotherapy failures for years. Other than for leukemia or lymphoma, conventional chemotherapy is almost always a death sentence. There are so many more effective ways to treat advanced cancer, and Dr. Carl Helvie's book, You Can Beat Lung Cancer: Using Alternative/Integrative Interventions, describes some of the most effective. In addition, his book is packed with references and information sources that will help anyone fighting cancer learn more about how to go about it successfully. --Frank Shallenberger, MD, HMD, ABAAM, Medical Director, The Nevada Center of Alternative Medicine, Editor: Real Cures Newsletter and Author
From the Author
This book was a joy to write because it discusses my experience with lung cancer 38 years ago when contemporary medicine gave me 6 months to live and I beat the odds of lung cancer and also the odds of 3 chronic illnesses and 5 prescribed medications (average for a 75 year old). And I used all natural holistic interventions so there were no side effects. Now at age 80 I am in excellent health and lead an active life, I want the same for others and realize it is so easy for those who are willing to live a healthy holistic lifestyle involving physical, mental, spiritual, relationships. environmental, and political components. Most of my other books have been textbooks for nursing and health students but this book and my last one are for the general public.
As Helvie writes, the major cause of lung cancer is smoking, but there are other risk factors as well, such as exposure to asbestos and arsenic. One causal relationship I was not aware of until skimming this book is that a diet low in fruits and vegetables is also a factor. In fact, consumption of green leafy vegetables protects against lung cancer even amongst smokers, according to Helvie.
I think this book is important for anyone diagnosed with lung cancer to read and discuss with their medical and alternative providers.
