I wanted to read the sample to get a feel for the tone and style of the book, but the foreword and introduction were quite long, and I didn't get to read much more than half of the first chapter.

I don't have cancer myself, so I've never considered looking into alternative, natural methods on battling this disease, but I do believe in finding natural remedies for diseases in general. However, a glimpse into the background of this book has revealed a bit of a controversial history, where the Supreme Court banned medical professionals from sharing the research conducted by the author's father to their patients. Reading the description of the book itself, it sounds like the book was written in a way to provoke the sense of a government conspiracy, when the book is simply detrimental to a person's health. Based on the little research I've done, I feel this book is not a good fit for me.

If I'm mistaken, or there's much more to it, I would love to know. I'm also sorry if I've offended anyone, because that wasn't at all my intention. I'm just sharing my thoughts based on the research I felt was needed to make a personal decision on whether I would like to read this.

As an alternative health professional, I can tell you that you should be more interested in any information that our government has "banned." I just finished reading this book and although I found it to be long winded, the research is unparalleled and revolutionary. The book is more about the author's journey to share her father's work than about the work itself. None of the information in the book is detrimental to a person's health as all the research promotes the alternative treatments as support to standard medical care such as chemotherapy and not as a replacement. Knowledge is power and knowledge they don't want you to have is that much more powerful. Don't pass up the opportunity to glimpse the world that alternative practitioners deal with.

There is a lot of research and footnotes which I have tried to keep up with, but as I said, I have a way to go, so I will reserve my opinion on the scientific part.
Guess i will try pick it up to see the content and the relevance to its topic.

The story's origin is her father's experience and research. I like that the author's voice is calm and it sounds like she makes her arguments in a clear way. What makes me somewhat hesitant to look at it as solid research is the emphasis on conspiracy theories stressed in the blurb.
I would definitely recommend this book to someone who is fighting cancer and need some mental support

From the little I have read so far, I see that Sylvie carried out a detailed research on Cancer. She has compiled a book that is not just going to be helpful to people already living with this disease but also for people interested in preventing and curbing the menace.I will rate this book a 4 of 4 star rating particularly because it will serve as a soothing balm for those looking to get alternative help

"You were born with ability to change someone's life--don't ever waste it."

This book is a good book since it talks about real thing. It was well-researched. And one thing I really liked was the author's willingness to help people as we have read at the first chapter.

I will rate this 4 out of 4 since I believe that people needs this book. This is very helpful.

This book definitely deserves a 4 out 4 star. I find it to be very informative and well researched. It gives Cancer patients another option other that surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. This alternative option is inexpensive and naturally made. Great book.

I'm usually a self-confessed cynic when it comes to cancer-cure claims. This book presents it's argument rationally and apparently backed up by evidence. It gradually wore me down and now I feel mildly convinced, if not fully converted. Not a bad read.
