Naturopathic physician Colleen Huber, NMD, contrasts her 11-year clinical practice treating cancer patients naturally with the prevailing view that natural cancer treatments are impossible.
This is a manifesto for a patient's right to choose their own treatment, and a manual through the cancer journey. Huber also discusses her own experience with alternatives to chemotherapy.
What choices do cancer patients have? Why do those choices seem so few?
This book is a manifesto for patient rights and a manual through the cancer journey, from a Naturopathic Medical Doctor. A newly diagnosed cancer patient is told: "There is nothing else that works against your cancer except chemotherapy and radiation. So you are going to start chemo now." After several chemo drugs are tried over the course of months to years, the cancer patient must then hear: "There is nothing more that can be done for your cancer, and it is time to go to hospice." Then death is blamed on cancer rather than deception and inappropriate treatments.
It doesn't have to be this way. Completely different treatments for cancer exist and are discussed in this book. Cancer patients who choose naturopathic treatments over chemotherapy are berated by those who had already decided on a treatment plan. Naturopathic physicians treat cancer patients, and are criticized for doing so by oncologists. Is the war against cancer, or against any alternatives to the status quo?
