An important book for all cancer patients. Radical Remission is filled with hope, science and possibilities. (Kris Carr, New York Times bestselling author)
Never before has anyone with Dr. Turner’s credentials dared to research the million dollar question: why do some patients get better from seemingly “incurable” illnesses? Dr. Turner has uncovered the holy grail those who want to optimize their chances for cure have been seeking. Bravo, Dr. Turner! (Lissa Rankin, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Mind Over Medicine & host of the National Public Television special Heal Yourself: Mind Over Medicine)
This book is filled with important information for everyone, whether struggling with cancer or not.

From the Back Cover
Discover the nine keys that can unlock your pathway to dramatic healing.
Kelly Turner, Ph.D., a researcher and psychotherapist who specializes in integrative oncology, gives the reader the results of her research on over a thousand cases of Radical Remission—people who have defied a serious or even terminal cancer diagnosis with a complete reversal of the disease. The results of this study, which focused on seventy-five factors, include astounding insights of the nine key factors that Dr. Turner found among nearly every Radical Remission survivor she has studied and an explanation of how the reader can put these practices to work in his or her own life.
Every chapter of Radical Remission includes dramatic stories of survivors' journeys back to wellness. The realization that the possibilities for healing are more abundant than we had previously known gives people concrete ways to defy the overwhelming prognosis of terminal cancer. This is a book for those who are in the midst of receiving conventional cancer treatment, who are looking for other options because that treatment has done all that it can, or who seemingly have no options left but still feel that the future holds the possibility of hope.
Kelly Turner's Radical Remission shows that it is possible to triumph over cancer, even in situations that seem hopeless. Encompassing diet, stress, emotions, spirituality, and other factors that profoundly affect our health and well-being, Turner's discussion of how our choices can cause the seemingly miraculous to happen will open your eyes to what is possible when it comes to lasting healing.--This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

Turner points out in her book that not one doctor she asked who had personally witnessed a Radical Remission had tried to publish the case as a classic case study. She also points out that there are over 1,000 reports of "spontaneous remissions" that have been reported in the medical literature, but that they weren't being pursued by researchers as to the commonalities among them. Turner has done that!
She asked the right questions, "Why did each of these people experience a spontaneous remission? What it spontaneous or was it something they did?" She found out that their remissions were due to something they did.
Turner also highlights how it is by focusing on the anomalies that new discoveries are made. Whether it be Dr. Revici's discoveries, the discovery of penicillin, etc, it is almost always in the exceptional case where the discovery is made.
The book then goes forth to expand on the 9 biggest commonalities that she uncovered so that cancer patients can try them for themselves.
Turner continues to collect more cases to help verify her findings. In her book, she calls her findings a hypothesis. She wants to see more attention devoted to her data to confirm and expand her findings.
We can be sure that the cancer industry will close ranks and not follow through on Turner's goal just as they have for the past 100 years. But the book and her continued mission is a GIGANTIC step towards greater awareness about the real ways to cure cancer.
I think increasing laughter in the cancer patient's life is important as the book recommended, and the advice to family and friends about maintaining the social circle of love and friendship are important as well. The book bring hope to the cancer patient, regarding radical remissions that do occur and are something you will not hear about from your oncologist.
Among thousands of cases of radical remission from late stage cancers the following nine factors were most frequently cited in interviews of the recovered patients: Radical change of diet, Taking control of treatment, Intuition, Herbs and supplements, Releasing suppressed emotions, Increasing positive attitudes, Social support, Spiritual connection, Strong reasons for wanting to live. Turner devotes a chapter to each of these factors. She provides details of the treatments and case histories. She found that oncologists acknowledge that these recoveries do occur, but they have not been studied. Her book is a call to action to delve into these remarkable findings. And it is an inspiration to those who find themselves in similar situations. But it is not a treatise for folk medicine or a recommendation against traditional methods. Almost all of the cases started with traditional treatments. Turner offers some hypothetical models of cancer that might explain her findings, but at this point there are no controlled studies or likely mechanisms to explain these relatively rare recoveries. One idea that I found most appealing is that not only is the mind not separate from the body, but the mind controls the body. It’s a book that questions the medical model of treating the cancer where it occurs while ignoring the life of the patient. Many of the cases reported are actually cured and have been totally free of any evidence of cancer for many years.
