I was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia three years ago and was told by an oncologist I would have to start chemotherapy treatment to avoid rapid deterioration to the acute stage. I watched my wife die in a nursing home after years of taking prescription meds, saw my grandson pass at age 23 from leukemia after a year of chemo, and my son-in-law die at 42 from bladder cancer after chemo and radiation treatment at MD Anderson Cancer Center.
A second opinion on my cancer treatment was needed.
At the recommendation of one of my sons I got the book Over-the- Counter Natural Cures, which has a chapter on cancer and a natural protocol to treat it. After reading the book and doing extensive online research, I decided to take the natural road, where I have control over my treatment and my life. Oncologist scare tactics and pressure to take chemo makes most people afraid to do anything else.
They pressured me but I knew from experience that when you yield and sign over your life to the care of the medical system the outcome is unknown, probably not good. I saw that close up and personal.
This book explains cancer in a simple way that I never heard from any of the doctors at the cancer centers. It gave me confidence to treat my own cancer, in my own way, and retain control.
I wouldn't say the treatment protocol is easy. Sugar is cancer's main growth fuel. Cutting back on it, for me, was hard. I have a serious sweet tooth. But I know taking chemo and being deathly sick from it all the time is harder.
I started taking the recommended turmeric extract, paw paw, and other supplements like desiccated beef organs to provide nutrition for my immune system to build up its defenses. I started the 18-minute workout routine recommended by Ellison. It was a big diet and lifestyle change but I now eat mostly foods that give me vitality and strength, and I keep moving.
The natural protocol has built up my immune system. I can feel it. I'm now able to fight off skin infections, UTI's and bacterial pneumonia without antibiotics, something I wasn't able to do before. My platelet, red cell, and hemoglobin counts have increased. A dangerously high white count is down to almost normal, and malignant B-lymphocytes have decreased.
I'm curing my cancer without chemo.
Conventional cancer treatment destroys your immune system. It killed so many immune cells in my grandson's body that he had to get a bone marrow transplant from his brother. It couldn't save him though. His immunity was too far gone to fight sepsis and his organs failed.
Taking chemotherapy is like playing the slots in Vegas. Oncologists know chemo kills cancer cells and normal cells. The bet is that there will be enough good cells left after the chemical flood for immunity to take hold, fight the remaining cancer cells, and stave off deadly infections.
The chemo slots don't usually pay though as contribution to adult five-year survival is less than 3 percent according to a study by Morgan, Ward, and Barton. Other studies have come to the same dismal conclusions. Negative impact on quality of life however is 100 percent, and cytotoxic damage to good cells in skin, tissues, organs, and brain, puts the patient at high risk of matastasizing existing cancer, as well as development of future cancers.
I haven't lived the life of a saint. I've been hard on my body, smoked for decades, diet not so good, and have exposed myself to asbestos in my work. Any or all of these may have contributed to my cancer.
It may sound funny, but I'm happy to have leukemia and to be able to treat it naturally. I'm happy that I can still do what I want, go where I want, and live an active lifestyle at 89 years old. My dear relatives went down the conventional treatment road, they suffered horribly from chemo, radiation, and surgery, and they're no longer with us.
My original oncologist, and the one I transferred to after changing insurance providers, stopped pitching me on chemo and advised me to keep on doing whatever I'm doing. My lab results proved to them that there is another way.
If you've been diagnosed with cancer I recommend giving yourself a second opinion. Slow down, breathe, steady yourself. You have time. Take some of it to read this book and learn about Ellison's natural cancer treatment protocol. Research and verify, get acquainted with your real options. Then, only then, make your informed choice about the road you will take.
As for the bad reviews, I love to read them, because most of the time they start with "I am a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, I did not buy the book, but I know the book is crap, Shane is a con artist, and Quackwatch says it all" in a nutshell. Like being a doctor is an authority on health, when the truth is most people turn to alternative medicine because they get no help from their doctors. If I had listened to my doctor over the years I would be very sick if not dead by now.
So kudos to Shane for spreading the message and doing a great service to the people. If he makes money on the way, who not. His supplements are getting people off toxic drugs and returning them to good health. As for Quackwatch, anybody with a brain knows what they are about.
Start looking and READING what is in it .. he will tell you where to get decent clean herbals suppliments or he sells his own clean brand for some things.. you are given the information and you can make choices.. start slow..READ and read it again..google if you must on some things, ingredients, you dont know.. and get your life back.. some will and some will not..
we all make choices..
i chose to gift this book to a couple friends as well. It is technical in spots and easy to read and a warning for sensitive folk.. he is outspoken and blunt and not politically correct. I like that sort of honesty..
no snake oil fillers or fluff here.. just facts backed by science and years of experience. Get the book, read it, and use it. And check out his website for other very useful information..
Good luck and thank you..

I have read many many books along similar lines to this one and so some of the information I was already aware of. It is nice to see that authors out there are trying to make us aware of our choices rather than just settling for what we are told. There are other alternatives which I have embraced over the past 5 years or so, and they have definitely made a huge difference to me.
I do believe that if you can get the nutrients from your diet ( fruit, veg, nuts, seeds, grains, water etc) then you do not need to supplement as much.. I feel supplements should be taken if you cannot get the nutrient from its real source....
Good to start opening your eyes to other alternatives people....
but the information and the way he explains detail regarding the differing topics is refreshingly in depth and
complete. The book is a stand alone, (unlike many books of its ilk on the market), with details of his website
where more information etc, should you require it, can be found.
He also doesnt try to sell his own products, (in fact, unusually, I dont think he mentions them). He actually takes
the time to reccommend the most economic and suitable brands of supplements, tried checked out and tested in his lab.
Great groundbreaking, much needed book. Am in the process of buying more copies for family and friends. Thats a first...........................
I've just oredered a 2nd for my sister, in fact, everyone I love will be getting one.
I thought I knew a lot about health and nutrition, but this book is a revelation. Easy to read and understand, well written, in a compelling, informative manner.
It's not expensive, buy it and make your own mind up.
Shane Ellison really tells it like it is - offering solutions to those health problems the pharmaceutical and medical industries are so eager to treat with harmful and non-effective chemical preparations!
An eye-opener and definitely full of wise and proven alternatives!
A MUST-read and MUST-APPLY!
