Editorial Reviews

Review

“Updated, expanded, and authored by two renowned authorities who both also happen to be cancer survivors themselves, this book is an invaluable resource to cancer patients, their families, and their conventional care providers. This evidence-based encyclopedic text, infused with experience and humanity, truly lives up to the promise of its name.”
--Donald I. Abrams, MD, from the foreword
 
“For the first time, all of the necessary information to support cancer patients through difficult treatment decisions as well as help them address the underlying causes of disease can be found in one clear and sensible guide. It’s about time!”
--Mark Hyman, MD, author of UltraMetabolism: The Simple Plan forAutomatic Weight Loss

Format: Paperback
The majority of patients I see in our office have come to us because they have cancer and want more options than what they are offered in their oncologist's offices. They have read that diet, exercise, nutritional supplements and other natural techniques may help them in their fight against cancer. Yet their oncologists can provide little or no information on what else they can do along with surgery, chemo and radiation.

Often these people are desperate and turn to the internet to find things that might help. Never was the phrase, "Buyer Beware" more applicable to those seeing cancer cures online. Much of my time with new patients is spent answering questions spurred on by unproven and rather suspicious claims of miracle cures. I have long sought out a book that I could hand our patients that would provide an honest roadmap of the path that lies ahead of them. A book that covers cancer from both sides of the path, the standard medical oncologic approach and the alternative and complementary approach. A book that helps people integrate both approaches together so that they can get the best of both. In the end is not how patients get better but getting them better.

This book is the one we have chosen to use in our office and we currently purchase them by the box. I haven't found a better book for our purposes. It's honest, straightforward, well written and covers almost all the topics that need to be covered. If this you are only going to read one book about cancer, this is a good choice.

I was fortunate to receive a copy of this excellent book. This recent publication is the most credible and helpful resource I have seen on the market regarding an integrative approach to the prevention and treatment of cancer. The authors have incorporated information from several fields of knowledge, including conventional medicine, to provide readers with an invaluable guide for an understanding of the different types of cancer, preventive measures that make sense, and when cancer occurs, the options available for treatment and healing.

There are numerouls books on cancer and it is unusual to find one that is as organized and clearly written as this book by Dr. Alschuler and Ms. Gazella. Furthermore, as a professional, knowledgeable about research methods and the importance of reliable and valid studies to support findings and recommendations, I found this book's use of research more credible and useful than most publications on integrative approaches. The charts throughout the text add clarity to the material as well as the case studies and cited opinions from other professionals.

I give much credit to Dr. Alschuler and Ms. Gazella for the extraordinary effort they extended in writing this book. Professionals, families and individuals should have this book and use the material as a primary resource on their understanding of cancer, how the disease may be prevented, and when it occurs, what options are available for treatment and healing.

Format: Paperback
The Definitive Guide to Cancer is exactly that, a guide. It is not a book with incoherent facts and figures but rather it explains and guides possible ways to improve your quality of life and ability to heal. It addresses specific cancers, and with each kind of cancer addressed it provides information on the causes, conventional treatment options, and always complementary approaches; like improving your lifestyle and diet with natural supplements. To me, the idea of being diagnosed with cancer of any kind is a tumultuous part of anyone's life, and in seeking a guide to prevent and heal, the only thing i would ask for is literature that presents the facts as sincerely as this book does. The content of this book is reassuring because the authors present their knowledge and information in a straight forward and honest manor. When it comes to an integrative approach to prevention, treatment, and healing I couldn't think of anything better to recommend!

Format: Paperback
Invariably the information within this book is helpful and easy to understand. I find two features of this book, among many, as uniquely helpful. First is the book's integration of 'standard' cancer treatment with 'alternative' treatments in a practical and evidence-based way. The alternative treatments are given and evaluated on the basis of the evidence supporting them. This allows people to make informed and reasonable decisions. There are so many wild claims about cancer treatment that abound on the internet and in books. It is very difficult to make sense of all of it. This book does that, while not telling you what to do. In this way the authors support their trustworthiness and integrity. The second feature I find particularly helpful is the access to understandable information. The book can be read from cover to cover, or as a reference. Invariably, if I have a question about a type of cancer, standard treatment options, supplements to take, what I can expect, etc. the information is easy to find in this one book.

Unfortunately, I have had the opportunity to give this book to several friends who are dealing with cancer. However, each person has come back to me later with praise for the book and gratitude that I gave it to them.

This is the one book to get.
