Cancer Survivors

Post by sarahmarlowe »

I am curious as to how cancer survivors react to this book. Do you feel like you are learning good information for health maintenance? Do you feel slighted because you would have liked to have known this information earlier? Do you feel attacked for sticking with mainstream treatments?

I'm not a cancer survivor, but I am a family of one who did. And I speak for her when I say that the battle is still not won since there is still a chance it might come back. But this book is helpful as to stay healthy and that using these traditional alternatives is actually effective.

My father died as a result of badly treated cancer at the age of 68, in fact, I think he would be celebrating his 82nd birthday this wednesday if only he wouldn't have gone through quimotherapy and all the things they did to him.
I would definitely liked to have more information on alternative methods for treating cancer back then.
I know the question was for survivors but couldn't help expressing my point of view.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It is indeed painful knowing we could have done something else.

I have lost two family members in the war with cancer. The topic is extremely important to me but, at the same time, it is quite sad.

I've read this book and reviewed it, and I think yeah, cancer survivors will get something out of it. People, don't forget, there are currently over 300 cancer treatments available today that do not rely on the cut, burn and poison that the Western medicine uses even today. For example, for breat cancer we have the iodine therapy. For lung stuff (and even pneumonia, and anything related to coughing, pulmonary issues, we have the orthomolecular medicine. We also have the Gerson therapy...so many things to try before giving up.

This is something new to me. I didn't know there are a lot of treatments to this other than chemotherapy. Will do some research about them. Glad you shared this! :tiphat:

I am not a cancer survivor, but my grandfather is. I would not assume Iunderstand his opinion on this book, but I believe that he would respect that people have a right to share their thoughts and feelings ...and ideas. He would not feel slighted.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It's sad to think of all the ways there exists to potentially cure cancer but all we know are about chemotherapy and such stuff which doesn't even work all the time.

I had a family member and an uncle who lost their battle to cancer. Infact, one of them were so late in being diagnosed that there was little to be done in those last moments. Even then, he underwent chemotherapy and the result was him being so utterly fragile and weak. It broke my heart to see such a warm and energetic soul losing all hope. I wonder if the knowledge about these treatments would have done them any good.

I'm definitely open to alternative medical treatments, but I, too, would like to hear more reactions from cancer survivors regarding this book.

Cancer survivors will absolutely love this book. It provides a therapy on how to best prevent themselves from contracting other forms of the disease.
