5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource, much needed perspective !, February 15, 2011

This review is from: Crazy Sexy Cancer: Wellness Version (DVD)
This is a great resource for those who are themselves or with loved ones facing cancer. This documentary explores the choices and journey of a young woman with a cancer diagnoses. She decides to open up to answers beyond the convention offerings of the medical industry, and basically ends up doing well by following a whole foods diet incorporating living foods and regenerative juices- which are the foundation and bedrock of traditional naturopathy, and offered to anyone through numerous seminars as well as centers and therapeutic approaches such as Hippocrates Institute, Ann Wigmore training, Gerson therapies- its basically all the same- to support your immune system and general balance , while embarking on tissue cleansing through a regenerative whole foods plant based diet.

There is one scene where she visits an Expo, which lumps obviously well- trained practitioners in with people selling crystals and gimmicks - and that sends the wrong message to the mainstream- there are thousands of serious , well trained, highly experienced and educated healing arts practitioners who offer and facilitate methods that work, so I was sad to see them portrayed with clowns and crystal hawkers- it sends the wrong message, and misinforms - although those expo's still exist, there are better ways to inform ourselves about traditional naturopathy, living foods healing diets, and the professional benefits of bodywork therapies, herbs, hydrotherapy, and natural medicine.

Yet the overall inspirational message of this story cannot be beat! This is an important, utterly life changing topic and deserves full exploration, not the passive victimization so common in our culture.

I also highly recommend the perspectives offered in "Healing Cancer" (Mike Anderson), "Dying to Have Known", and "The Beautiful Truth". Although everyone is free to make their own choices, thankfully we are learning that there is a "cancer industry" with an agenda to fear-monger people into making quick and radical choices which may destroy their innate healing capacities rather than support them. While this is not the message of this particular film, one can perhaps read between the lines, as it were- Kris avoids these "treatments" and ends up being the one with vitality, vigor, and strength to run, power walk, do yoga, and engage in creating her life without interruption beyond the initial stages in 2003 of inquiry. I wonder - would her doctors have said what they did had they not been on film, under those circumstances? Or would they have pressured her into debilitating chemo, surgery, radiation, and poo-pooed juicing and live foods as the doctors in the above mentioned films did ?? I recommend seeing them all- easy enough to do with media available from amazon via digital download/pay per view.

Also recommended is (book) The Cancer Industry- The Classic Expose on the Cancer Establishment. The truth shall set you free.
