Alternative therapies do not always work but neither does chemotherapy and radiation. Alternative medicine, however, has many advantages, in that it does not destroy the immune system, nor healthy cells in the process. You do not lose your hair or feel some of the horrific side effects that patients go through on chemo or radiation. In some cases, patients use alternative medicine to reduce the effects of chemo and radiation. They also use it to recover from the treatments faster.
I would at least like to show that there are success stories. I could find you many more, but these are examples. These testimonials do show that alternative therapies can and do work.
I personally have not had cancer. I nearly lost my life to a clot and have had several blood clots in my legs over the years, but not cancer. I am alive today using alternative therapies. My husband had prostate cancer long before I met him, and had it surgically removed. He did not have chemo or radiation and is alive 10 years later. I think the best service his doctor did him, but to influence him not to have chemo or radiation, that he did not feel is valuable or needed.
We have had discussions on if he gets a cancer again at some point. I think at this point he would have enough faith seeing what it has done for his blood pressure and headaches, that he would go alternative. I for one would not choose any other path, because it has saved my life to this point, and I believe in it with all my heart and mind.
"Another book that is valuable to read is Knockout, Interviews with Doctors who are curing cancer by Suzanne Somers, who has experienced cancer and is alive still to write the book. The tragic fact is that most people have insurance that will only pay for standard therapy. They have no money to pursue alternative medicine. Not having money, as most Americans, they have no choice. I talked to a man whose wife has just been diagnosed with melanoma cancer. They are on social security with no backup. They will, because of a lack of money, be forced to deal with her cancer with standard medicine. Obama's healthcare plan will not give you that option either. That is the real tragedy. Money = options medically. Even if a family does have financial resources, they are told by their doctors they have no choice.
I think people with a cancer diagnosis should be able to told both sides, then be given the choice of how they want to treat their cancer. The book does advertise a product he developed for the immune system. It is very expensive. One reader that called found fault with that. Is the author-doctor supposed to give away his expertise and product for free when it is saving lives? Your doctor is charging your insurance a fortune for your chemo or radiation therapies. Your doctor will charge your insurance a fortune for your surgery to remove the cancer, and the resulting months of treatment. Why then should not a doctor who uses alternative medicine charge? He has to pay for office charges, payroll, malpractice insurance, and fight the AMA as well. He has to support his family, as does your surgeon and doctors. The only difference is that your insurance pays for a lot of the expense for standard medicine in some cases, Add up your insurance premiums for the year with private insurance and see what that comes too. In our case, almost $300 a month comes out of my husbands retirement from the post office plus another hundred for medicare costs as well. That makes $400 we pay per month to medical insurance. If we cut the policy premium down, I would have no emergency services at all. So alternative therapies are not free and may be quite expensive, but .........
Here are some people and their experiences: None of their comments have been altered and are full of spelling errors and such. Real people giving their story.
I have many people in my family with cancer. I have added many of the Quillins recommendations to my own diet to hopefully help prevent cancer. I haven't given up soda or sugar, but I have cut back. I have added soy and try to have a diet rich in fresh produce and grains. I try stay away from any products listed below the "FAIR" list in the book. Our families have incorporated some of the recipes provided in the book into our regular routines.
This book is really technical, but it is worth reading through because the information is well researched and NUTRITION really does make a difference. So, get past the technical language and the basics are really easy to understand. I think the author is so brilliant he sometimes forgot the audience might have no prior medical knowledge. Mr. Quillin, I'm a GREAT proofreader, I'd love to be your editor!
I'm thankful for this book and the Quillins. It was with this book and prayers and faith in God that I still have my dad around!
Very practical ideas to do......cancer can be prevented, anyone should read this book with cancer or not!
I have cancer or should I say had! My tumor was removed in October 2006 and scans a few weeks ago showed the all clear. I refused post surgical Chemo, I had Radiation and Chemo before surgery and that did my body in. I was Stage III and 40 years old......my doctor told me I was his ONLY patient to refuse Chemo, what does that tell us?! He is a great medical doctor and I will stay with him to monitor me.....but I will SURVIVE and show him there are other ways.
I am now getting a degree in Holistic Nutrition because of my readings about cancer.
Thank you Dr. Quillian for helping me live a better life.
It was my intention in June 2004 after having finished reading your book " Beating Cancer with Nutrition" that I must be writing to you some day in 5 years time if I were able to live longer. I am writing you this letter while I have been still following your guidance given in the book " Beating Cancer with Nutrition" on my 8th year of pancreas cancer survivor.I therefore would like to share the result of my practice in accordance with chapter 7, 8 and 9.
Reading another book of yours; The Diabetes Improvement Program and seeing that on the second page of Introduction,you encourage the ones using nutrition as part of the treatment to share the personal experience in this matter.I am then confident that mine, as a case study for those readers, will be welcome.
I was diagnosed on 10th January 2004 that I got pancreas cancer. Seeing that there were
tumor in form of flower on the head of the pancreas by CT scan. I was consequently given
6 sessions of chemotherapy. I was given one of your book "Beating Cancer with Nutrition"
after I completed 6th session in June that year.
Once finished reading chapter 9 I, at that time, had a will power that I wouldn't go through radiation plan
advised by the hospital but rather choos to beat my pancreas cancer with nutrition instead.
I also got fully support and was encouraged by a Thai Physician: Dr Aree Wachiramano ,
who also beat his prostate cancer with nutrition .
I applied those guideline given in your book into my daily life style.
(1) Giving up all diet which feed cancer cell and limit the intake of
sodium, sugar, fat and protein from neither animal nor plant.
(2) Detoxification ( by using caffeine in pure coffee twice a day:
early morning and in the evening)
( after taking 4 months of detoxification, it brought SGPT and SGOT
down from 78 and 67 respectively to 34 and 31
(3) Revitalize immune system in my body to heal themselves
by taking 3.1 Selenium one capsule of 70 microgram
Natural E one capsule of 400 IU
Omega 3 4 capsules of 1000
Wobenzym one capsule
before meals then taking
3.2 Viamin C 5 capsules of 1000
Beta carotene one capsule of
Spirulina 5 tablets
Naicin one capsule
Potassium one tablet
Magnesium one tablet
Kelp -3 tablets
Chromium picolinate one capsule
Grape seed - one capsule
(4) Taking 45-55 mins. for daily exercising : walking on work days and taking a bike on weekends
(5) Managing and controlling my own tension
And to monitor my biochem, I had blood test monthly during June 2004-Dec 2009 and quarterly during 2010-2011.
the laboratory reports turned me with satisfaction since 4th month of fully applying to these guidelines.
The details you gave in chapter 1-6 help strengthening my daily life style as I have been well aware why the discipline is ultimately needed
While healing myself during these years, I have been able to lead my normal life by going to work at the British Embassy in Bangkok with
neither sick leave nor getting cold up until the day I last worked there in March 2011( and not at all even at present ). Going to see
physician is no more !
In previous years there were many suffering from various types of cancer came to consult me from time to time. For those who believe and have
will power to apply the guideline shared in the book, they all survive and are able to maintain their normal lives these days.
As a result, I am able to confirm that the guideline given on Beating Cancer with Nutrition works and is right according to my personal experience.
Dr Patrick Quillin, I am grateful for what you have written.
Like many others before me, I had to sift through a lot of pseudo science and focus on what made sense and was grounded in fact.
And I was lucky, because I pulled Patrick Quillin's book randomly from many others in the bookstore, not knowing that what I had in my hands was to become my bible. So let me save you having to be lucky and tell you that this book is so thoroughly researched, so based in scientific knowledge and so clearly written, that it will lift your spirits to know you are in such good hands. Apart from the fundamentals that make for a healthy body and a strong immune system, this book is packed with information on anything and everything that has been shown to impact cancer.
Once you have your ducks in a row as far as good eating habits are concerned, you can go back to add endless extra weapons to your arsenal. A year after finding this gem, I am still doing just that. I take it wherever I go and I tell people about it. If all those suffering from the evils of cancer could get a hold of this book, cancer statistics would change dramatically and for the better!
I say this because mine did. In the first three months using 'Beating Cancer With Nutrition', I cut my PSA (cancer score) in half! And at nine months it is still going down! I should be on hormones according to my doctors, but I am not because my immune system, given the chance, can fight cancer. And I gave it that chance by following the ideas in this book.
There is no silver bullet 'cure' for my disease, but Patrick Quillin gives you all you need to know for your body to fight as it was designed to do. He also provides delicious recipes that incorporate the basic tenets, and astute scientific comments on all the foods you may be wondering whether you should eat. Do I recommend it? Does it work? I say a big yes and yes. Thank you Dr Quillin for turning dark despair into a spirited, hope-filled attack on cancer. We all need to spread the word about this wonderful book.
During my journey to remission, use the nutrition philosphy written and spoken (Audio CD) by Dr. Quillin and still practice them today in a healthier diet. I'm CANCER FREE three years later, well informed on nutrition and will practice what I've learned forever.
The purpose of this email is firstly to thank you for writing "Beating Cancer with Nutrition". I am a prostate cancer survivor and have found that the material in your book along with much prayer has been my life saver. I elected not to have surgery and have had a reduced PSA for about 3 years. I can honestly say that cancer was one of the best things that ever happened to me.
And now for the second reason: As a result of my experience with cancer and the approach of trusting God and nutrition I have been frequently approached by folk who want to hear my story. I have always found it totally relevant to recommend your book and have had really good feedback about it and the CD. This has even carried to family overseas.
I am now at the stage where groups are asking that I would share a presentation to explain how the process of healing by nutrition works. I feel I should do this as there is just such a huge need for this information. So much of what you teach in your book is essential to what I need to say. I hope it is ok for me to quote from your book. I would in all cases suggest that folk purchase it as an ongoing reference source as they learn how to use the so very powerful tool of nutrition. I also wondered if it would be allowed to show some of your charts in a PowerPoint presentation.
I am very grateful for the testimony that I have of being cured of cancer and hope I can share this favorable experience with many other people.
My background is engineering and I have spent about 32 years in the food processing business. For many years it has amazed me how badly we destroy the foods that we process. So, I have in many ways an extra appreciation for making the most of foods as close to the natural state as possible.
The doctors wanted her to have kemo and radiation since her cancer marker were so high before the surgery and were still above the mark that they reccomend for treatment, but my mother-in-law decided that since her lymph nodes and all the tissure around the tumor was negative of cancer, she opted out. With diet we were able to bring her markers under the mark that they recommend treatment. I gave her the book and then recently bought another for me to have here at home. They test her blood every three months and every six she has other tests and so far she is doing remarkably well. The doctors are very impressed with her. She also is now walking about six miles a day. She says that walking really makes her feel good and she has her routine that she does, rain or shine.
I am so thrilled to be around for my two boys and see them grow up! If you have Cancer, this is one of the most important books that you can buy. It is well worth every penny for it! I have purchased this book for friends that have Cancer. I am also thrilled that now I am writing my own book to tell you my life story! "
If you want more testimonials go this site below. There are testimonials of people who have used Ezzeac tea. I use a different brand that I feel is even more effective but you should read some of them to give you more proof that chemo and radiation is not your only choice:http://www.herbalhealer.com/4-herb/testimonials.shtml?utm_source=Internet+Only+Specials+-+End+May+22&utm_campaign=May+Internet+Specials+Email&utm_medium=email
So I end this blog for today on Cancer and Alternative Therapies. Next blog, will be on the nutrition aspect of fighting cancer.
