Anti Cancer - A New Way of Life

Dr David Servan-Schreiber Penguin Books

This book is exceptional. Its power lies in the credentials of its author, an ambitious young medical research scientist with little interest in the welfare of patients until he discovered, by pure chance, that he had a brain tumour. Cancer often proves a turning point in someone's life - in his case it threw into stark relief the limited view and lack of care so endemic in orthodox medicine. It opened his mind to the whole world of complementary and alternative medicine and the many methods on offer to support people with cancer physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually.

Adventures of a Cancer Maverick/How to Be A Cancer Maverick/Thoughts Hopes Daydreams

Nina Joy - Oodle Books

Read a full review on our blog click here

Nina is proud to be Yorkshire born and bred and now lives in Leeds. She has always believed in having a positive approach to life, and remembers her dad teaching her very early on in life, that “you can if you think you can.” Her belief in positivity, and getting through tough times have been thoroughly tested following her cancer diagnosis, but luckily Nina loves a challenge. She feels that she had been training for this all her life, and she has used everything she’s learned personally and professionally to get where she is today.

Nina shares her experiences of what is often seen as a hopeless situation, to show others that this is not necessarily so. That there are choices to be made if you know what to look for and how to make the challenges she has had to. No-one put in a book what can be done following such a diagnosis, but now Nina shares what has helped her to defy her prognosis.

Anita Moorjani . Hay House . ISBN 978-1-84850-783-8

All the while she explains what is happening and why.

Life Over Cancer: The Block Center Program for Integrative Cancer Treatment

Keith Block. Pub: Bantam. ISBN-10: 0553801147

Keith Block has been at the forefront of what is now termed 'integrative' cancer care since the 1980s. In his recent book 'Life Over Cancer' he shares his wealth of experience in a very accessible manner, providing people with an enormous variety of approaches to treating themselves and augmenting their orthodox treatment. More than thirty years after Dr Block began establishing the foundations of his hugely successful Life Over Cancer programme, and the best part of a century after Max Gerson's groundbreaking nutritional work with cancer, the majority of oncologists and dietitians in the UK still tell their patients that it doesn't matter what they eat once they have cancer.

Mum's Not Having Chemo

Laura Bond - Piatkus

A book about choices. A book to empower all cancer sufferers and their families.

In March 2011 Laura Bond's mother Gemma was diagnosed with ovarian and uterine cancer. Laura discovered that the only thing more shocking than telling someone your mother has cancer was revealing that she had declined chemotherapy. But, according to studies, many oncologists would do the same. So Laura, a journalist, started writing a blog to explain her mother's decision to say 'no' to mainstream medicine and 'yes' to hydrogen peroxide, vitamin C injections and infrared saunas.

Natural Approaches to Prostate Cancer: A Personal Perspective

Christopher Garner

In this small, well presented volume, Christopher Garner shares his experience of prostate cancer and of the many important discoveries he has made along the way that have contributed to his current wellbeing, eight years after diagnosis.

This is very much, as the subtitle tells us, a personal perspective, inasmuch as none of the information or suggestions included is theoretical, but are all from the author’s direct experience. This is therefore no all encompassing, authoritative reference work, but more an outstretched hand from a fellow traveller wishing to save others from some of the many pitfalls of the journey and to signpost the byways that have led him to greater health and wellbeing.

Radical Remission - The Nine Key Factors That Can Make a Real Difference

Kelly A Turner PhD - HarperOne ISBN-10: 0062268759

In the 21st century, who survives cancer and who doesn’t is still a very haphazard affair. Early stage cancers given the best medical treatment sometimes return aggressively and uncontrollably, and ‘terminal’ cases are occasionally alive and living well many years later.

Illogically little attention has been given over the years to the ‘how’ of extraordinary cases of survival. Particularly for some of the more lethal forms of cancer, survival is such a rarity that anyone defying the odds should rightfully attract enormous attention, in the interests of the many who will follow. Sadly this has not been the case - until now.

Say No to Cancer

Patrick Holford. Pub:Piatkus 2010. ISBN978-0-7499-5411-6

Ten years ago, Patrick Holford’s slim volume Say No to Cancer was an excellent resource for people with cancer, opening up avenues of self help and self determination to a British public almost totally unaware of any options other than lying back and passively enduring some of the most gruelling treatments the health service has on offer. His new and totally revised edition of the same name is a huge step forward, completely rewritten and significantly expanded and reflecting the significant steps taken over the last ten years to establish the validity and effectiveness of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) as a means of controlling cancer.

The Topic of Cancer

Jessica Richards

The Topic of Cancer is one woman's personal perspective on the experience of breast cancer, her response to it, and her distillation of the insights she gained along the way.

Jessica Richards is an unusually focussed and feisty character who many might feel would be a tough act to follow, but the inspiration alone that oozes from her book makes it well worth the read, as this has the power to raise anyone's personal expectations. As a management trainer who has spent years inspiring change in her clients, she walks the talk when faced with one of the biggest challenges life can throw at us.
