"Good introduction to Shelton's Natural Hygiene program, which is 100% non-toxic. Says that orthodox medicine is "all wrong" because it does not remove causes. More than a book, this is a plan for living. See the chapter titled "What are tumors?" HIGHLY RECOMMENDED."
"Details about the cancer therapy of Dr. Max Gerson, which claims to work by saturating the body with nutrients while detoxifying it with coffee enemas. The Gerson therapy is intense and expensive. I have reservations about this program. See my review on Amazon."
"Whole body therapy for cancer. Cancer is a disease of the organism as a whole, not a local disease. Treatment focuses on removing external causes and correcting the internal milieu of the body, but is not always non-toxic. Does not rule out orthodox treatments. Uses treatment modalities not available in the United States."
"A cancer patient's experience at the Ringberg Klinik in Bavaria. Discusses Dr. Josef Issels and his whole body therapy. The author claims remission from cancer, but I have not been able to follow-up on him."
"Advocates a raw vegetarian diet. Discusses in detail the chief causes of cancer. Warns against orthodox cancer treatments, claiming that early diagnosis usually means early death. More about prevention than cure."
"Detailed discussion of natural healing and diet. Don't be put off by its publication date, this is a valuable book. It argues that starchy foods are indigestible and unsuitable for human consumption, including cereals and pulses, bread and potatoes. Advocates a diet based on fruits and nuts."
"The role of acid-alkaline balance in health and disease. The importance of oxygen. Disease comes from inside the body, not by invasion from outside. Healing should be in a clean-up mode, not a kill mode. Claims that a tumor is a storage bin for excess acids and toxins. Recommends detoxifying and oxygenating the body."
"Alternative approaches to cancer from just about every angle, with detailed explanations of how they are presumed to work. No guarantees. They are called "non-toxic," which is a stretch with some of them."
"About the healing claims made for mushrooms. They fail to convince. Says repeatedly that maitake mushrooms are non-toxic, but then says that they are toxic to cancer cells. Claims they boost the immune system, but is not clear on how they do that. NOT RECOMMENDED."
"Advocates nutritional supplementation in megadoses, while admitting that little is known about how to use supplements safely. Does not rule out conventional treatments. NOT RECOMMENDED. Supplements are highly concentrated and can cause dangerous imbalances, even under professional supervision."
"On the raw food treatment of cancer and other diseases. The diet has some merit, but I do not recommend it because it includes grains, garlic, and milk. She praises garlic, which I believe to be highly toxic, and lots of sun bathing. Cow's milk stimulates rapid growth and is not advisable in cancer. NOT RECOMMENDED."
"For cancer patients she prescribes fasting, alkaline diet, detoxifying, cabbage juice, will to live, etc. I cannot recommend this one because her diet allows grains, potatoes, milk, cheese, butter, garlic, etc. NOT RECOMMENDED."
