      I have never heard of this book, but it sounds like one I should pick up. If I read it I'll let you know what I think. Fear is something I think all cancer patients and survivors live with on a daily basis. I try not to focus on my rediagnosis and just take one day at a time and try to enjoy each day God gives to me. Easier said than done at times.

      Author claims that cancer research money is wasted asking the wrong questions. He asserts that, through his method, cancer cells can simply be turned off. We live in an age of fear, which is indicated by the positive reviews on Amazon. I note that not a single one of them claimed to have cancer.

      I see also that the book is very quick to state that it does not seek to turn you away from your physician. At least the author has good attorneys representing him.

      If it sounds like a duck...

      I have not read the book, but I did try checking it out on-line. A few warning signs stand out.

      The author has a Master of Science degree. That is not an MD degree. As it happens, I have a Master's degree in a science and it does not qualify me to write a book about nutrition and cancer.

      Your stomach is highly acidic for a reason. I don't think neutralizing your stomach acid, if it is possible, is going to help your body function. It sounds like borderline quackery. At least the author didn't recommend abandoning your current treatment.

      On the other hand, you probably should try to improve your diet. Mine could use some improvement. If you follow the advice and it works for you, great.

      I have not read this book, but I am reading a very good book by Russell Blaylock, M.D. entitled "Natural Strategies For Cancer Patients." I highly recommend it.

      I just noticed that you are in Highland Park. Have you considered seeing Dr. Keith Block? He also has an excellent book entitled, "Life Over Cancer." As far as I am concerned, I would consider him the expert on nutrition and cancer.

      I have read this book. It does contain a lot of useful information and a ton of redundancy but what he is saying is to clean up your diet and lifestyle. Our SAD is just that, garbage in garbage out. Not only what he recommends is healthy but useful in dealing with cancer and treatments. Moderen medicne does have its place as well as holistic medicine, together they worked for me. This book to me is a spin off on the Anticancer-A New Way of Life written by David Servan-Schreiber MD PhD, another helpful "guide book". These books are basically saying follow a macrobiotic diet, put whatever name you want on it. I do recommend getting some blood tests to see what your body is lacking as far as vitamins and minerals are concerned before loading up on supplements and following his suggestion. Some you may need, some not. Some insurance covers these blood tests and this is where CAM kicks in along with conventional medicine. Blessings to all......
