    1. This book is SUPER important. It's also super depressing. Basically, everything in our modern environment, from our food, to our water, to the air we breathe, to the clothing on our backs, to the cleansers (both personal and for inanimate objects), EVERYthing is trying to kill us. And since it's all been created or tampered with by other humans, basically humanity is trying to kill itself, slowly and one person at a time. BUT there IS hope. We can't become hermits and hope to avoid toxins, that' [...]

I received and e-copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This book is fantastic and I urge anyone interested in nutrition to read it, but especially anyone looking for nutritional support for healing during cancer treatment.

    4. I attended her lecture a little out of duty - to friends who are dealing with cancer and others, including myself, who may be in the future. I left that lecture relieved that this is a practitioner I feel comfortable directing people to. This upbeat book from a 26 year cancer survivor provides some security in that you do NOT have to do something immediately when getting the diagnosis. Then it is extremely empowering. The opposite of everything else done to people diagnosed with cancer.Is it eve [...]

    5. A fantastic approach to healing cancer that is NO nonsense and you don’t have to be a medical doctor to understand the science behind it. It is written for the average person in a language that resonates with being health conscious on many levels. I appreciated the different angels shared of what we put into our bodies (besides food!) and that effects our bodily “terrains.” There’s much here to absorb and this isn’t a quick read, it’s very thorough. I will be referencing and using th [...]

    8. This was a fascinating book that explains many mechanisms that occur with cancer growth. Talks about we need to find the cause of cancer just not cut it out cause it will come back. It explains ways to change your environment and eating to get rid of cancer. Tons of resources in this book. A must for anyone with cancer weighing treatment decisions.

    9. Wow. Just wow. There is so much common sense stuff here that you’re probably not thinking of. The book also covers various aspects of cancer in a digestible way. I learned a lot. Enough, in fact, that I will overlook the unscientific, borderline esoteric references in one section and still give this a 5. Inspired to prevent cancer and chronic disease.

    11. Content lost credibility right from the start with the inclusion of a quote by the disreputable Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong.

    12. Great infoLots of great info. Highly recommended. Just remember to do your own research because some advice may not help your type of cancer.
