One-On-One With 15 Cancer Doctors…

If you traveled the world for appointments with fifteen cancer doctors, you would discover many of the cutting-edge treatments used to heal the body from cancer. You would also spend thousands of dollars on hotels, plane tickets, and medical appointment fees—not to mention the time that it would take to embark on such a journey. Even if you had the time and money to travel, would the physicians have enough time to answer all of your questions? Would you even know which questions to ask?

In this long-awaited book, health care journalist Connie Strasheim has done all the work for you. She conducted intensive interviews with fifteen highly regarded doctors who specialize in cancer treatment, asking them thoughtful, important questions, and then spent months compiling their information into organized, user-friendly chapters (read a sample chapter) that contain the core principles upon which they base their approach to healing cancer. The practitioners interviewed are medical, osteopathic and naturopathic doctors, trained in a variety of integrative approaches to cancer treatment.

All aspects of treatment are covered, from anti-neoplastic (anti-cancer) remedies and immune system support, to dietary and lifestyle choices that result in the best outcomes for patients (see the Table of Contents). The book also offers unique insights into healing, such as the pros and cons of different treatments and how to intelligently use chemotherapy. It discusses patient and practitioner challenges to healing, factors that affect healing, treatment outcomes and how to effectively combine multiple medical strategies to obtain the best results. Finally, it offers helpful insights to the friends and families of those coping with cancer.

For those who have been recently diagnosed with cancer or who haven’t received adequate treatment with the means that have been previously provided to them, Defeat Cancer: 15 Doctors of Integrative Medicine Tell You How, presents information on some of the most effective treatments available in integrative medicine. Many of these treatments are not well-known in mainstream medicine due to the influence of medical politics, insurance companies, and pharmaceutical interests. Cancer treatment is complex and controversial, and this book puts the treatment information you need in the palm of your hand.

What Does The Book Offer?

Interviewees included fifteen medical doctors, osteopaths and naturopaths who treat cancer either exclusively or as a major part of their practice. These physicians were chosen on the basis of their expertise and experience in treating cancer. Each of the book’s chapters is devoted to the treatment approach of a particular doctor, and covers the following topics:

Anti-neoplastic (anti-cancer) treatments targeted at eliminating cancer cells and tumors. These include everything from IPT (Insulin Potentiation Therapy) and gene-targeted therapies, to metronomic chemotherapy, mistletoe, high-dose Vitamin C, sono and photodynamic therapy, dendritic cell vaccines, and intravenous nutrients. The doctors also answer the question, “What is cancer and what causes it?”

How to support and heal the body during and after cancer treatments. Included is information on diet, detoxification, vitamin and herbal supplements, hormone therapies, homeopathic remedies, allergy treatments, exercise and other physical therapies, as well as additional supportive treatments.

Factors that affect healing, including finances, lifestyle habits, psycho-emotional stress, past treatments, and co-morbid conditions. Tips are provided for patients with limited financial resources.

How to prevent cancer in the first place, and/or keep it from returning once patients are in remission or successfully managing their cancers.

Why medical politics have limited people’s access to effective treatments, and why knowing this is essential when searching for a cancer doctor.

Dangerous and/or ineffective approaches to cancer treatment

Suggestions for how family and friends can help their loved ones with cancer

The treatment outcomes that the doctors have with their patients

Patient and practitioner challenges to healing and how to overcome these
