3) Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds

By Food Revolution Summit speaker Kelly Turner, Ph.D • 336 pages

Radical Remission Surviving Cancer Against All Odds bookEarly in her career, Kelly Turner, Ph.D., a researcher, lecturer, and counselor in integrative oncology, was shocked to discover that no one was studying episodes of radical remission, which is when people recover against all odds without the help of conventional medicine, or after conventional medicine has failed.

She was so fascinated by this kind of remission that she embarked on a ten-month trip around the world, traveling to ten countries to interview fifty holistic healers and twenty radical remission cancer survivors about their healing practices and techniques.

Dr. Turner’s research continued by studying over 1,000 documented cases of radical remissions.  She discovered nine common themes that she believes may help even terminal patients turn their lives around.

These 9 common themes are:

  • Radically changing your diet
  • Deepening your spiritual connection
  • Increasing positive emotions
  • Releasing suppressed emotions
  • Taking certain herbs and vitamins
  • Using intuition to help inform health decisions
  • Taking control of one’s health
  • Having strong reasons to live
  • Receiving social support

These same factors may also help to prevent cancer (and a host of other diseases) from ever occurring in the first place.
