Editorial Reviews

Review

"Most conventional cancer treatments are tragically ineffective ... Defeat Cancer will provide you with a perspective that you will likely not hear about from your oncologists." --Joseph Mercola, DO, Founder, Mercola.com

"I have practiced medicine for 53 years, and a world without cancer is possible NOW. This book is a must-read and belongs in the hands of anyone who is affected by cancer." --Garry Gordon, MD, DO, MD(H), Leader, Kobayashi Cancer Study

"I wish this book had been available to me 12 years ago when I was diagnosed with cancer. Without exception, the doctors in this book are all true healers." --Richard M. Linchitz, MD, Founder and Medical Director, Linchitz Medical Wellness

"Here are well-experienced physicians you can 'interview' by reading their philosophy and approach. Cancer does not have to be a death sentence, even late stage."
--Robert Jay Rowen, MD, Editor-in-Chief, Second Opinion Newsletter

"The conventional treatment of cancer is truly medieval -- anyone with cancer must read Defeat Cancer by Connie Strasheim. This is a book of survival, using the latest science in the reversal of this dreaded disease.  -- Burton Goldberg, Consultant for Cancer Patients, author of 19 books and 5 films

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I would have loved to have had this book when my husband was diagnosed with throat cancer, five years ago. I don't know if he would have opted for a treatment different than the traditional poison/burn approach, but it would have been fantastic to have this resource on hand, to know what our options were and in case the traditional treatment failed to work.

When you are dealing with a life-threatening illness like cancer, the Internet is incredibly helpful. But the "non-traditional treatment" information is mostly anecdotal, the amount of time you must invest to find answers is mind-boggling, and no single resource or site makes it convenient to intelligently compare alternatives.

Defeat Cancer gives the cancer sufferers - and their loved ones - an invaluable resource. First, you will learn things about cancer that you will not learn from the Internet or the doctors who provide traditional treatment. Second, you will come to understand what options are open to you, and you will be able to choose one that appeals to you.

If you would prefer to avoid the traditional almost-kill-the-patient approach, this book introduces you to the doctors who have had success curing cancer - even after the patients have gone through traditional treatment and the treatment has not eliminated the cancer from their bodies. This is rather amazing, given the shape someone is in after traditional treatment. At the end of his treatment (5 chemo treatments, 30 radiation treatments), my husband looked like he had been imprisoned in a concentration camp. He lost 30 pounds, and he was thin to begin with. It took four nurses to lift him out of his wheelchair and onto the radiation machine for his last few treatments.

I don't have a medical background, English is not my native language and I don't have cancer.
But even for me as a layman the medical explanations were easy to understand
(exept for some words that I had to google and did not even understand in German).
I wanted to read this book as I am eager to learn about alternative medicine, as I think it
is important to know ALL the options there are, to be able to make a wise choice.

I know and have known a lot of people who have or had cancer. From 8 only one is still alive and well and the other one is dying slowly. I think the one that still lives a good life does so because he has a holistic approach to his illness. He meditates and is very careful about what he feeds his body AND mind.This is what impressed me most in this book....the fact that you don't just have to treat the cancer mass itself, but support the body and mind alike to empower it
to start the self healing mechanisms.

With every chapter I finished I thougt: Yes, this is the approach I would go for. At the end I could not decide which would be best for me (in case cancer should ever hit me), but it is not the aim of this book to help you chose an option.
It is supposed to give you a glimpse of what your possibilities are and then explore different options more extensively. I specially liked the mentioning of other websites where you can find additional information. (Be sure I'll dig into those)

Also it struck me how passionate every doctor talked about their patients. Nowadays, where time
is money, this is a rare pearl to find.

I find this book to be an incredible collection of information and I wish the ones that I knew
would have had the chance to read it.

Connie Strasheim, author of Insights Into Lyme Disease Treatment: 13 Lyme-Literate Health Care Practitioners Share Their Healing Strategies (Volume 1) writes another stellar book that offers the reader alternatives to mainstream treatments and therapies for a specific disease. Lyme disease is way less recognized than cancer, and I happen to have Lyme, myself, and thoroughly enjoyed and benefited from Connie's first book. However, if I had cancer- knowing that I would not be the typical patient who submits to receiving chemotherapy and radiation- after, as a child, seeing my dear grandmother burned to a black crisp and die as a result of that (think "char-broiled"), rather than her brain cancer- this is the book I would want at my side while I tried every alternative within my means. There is so much good information in this book, that you won't hear from your local oncologist unless you are fortunate to live in a city that has a progressive doctor or two who dare to be shunned by the rest of the medical world who practice cancer medicine like it is still 1980.

Note: As of right now, you can watch the eye-opening documentary, "Burzynski" online for FREE(!!!), just do a search on Vimeo or YouTube and hit "play". Dr. Burzynski has been curing his patients of all kinds of rare, aggressive, inoperable cancers for years now, only to be persecuted by the FDA at TAXPAYER expense (around $60 million, I believe). Yes, this is the kind of profit-driven "health-care" (more like "disease-care") system that is the foundation of our medical system, which is often unfortunate (and sometimes, deadly) for the consumers. Dr. B is interviewed in the 1st chapter of this book, which I highly recommend to anyone who has cancer and like me, is not interested in the slash, burn, and poison mentality that is the norm. Bravo, Connie. Bravo!!!
