Overview

Cancer Healing Odyssey tells the story of a Korean woman, married to an American man, living in Philadelphia with two young daughters, who was suddenly facing the dreaded silent killer-ovarian cancer stage IV, with malignant pleural effusion-from which few, if any, have ever been medically cured. While about 80% of women, with a similar type and stage of ovarian cancer, are gone in the first year, Sun Hee Lee is doing well, and thriving, over four years after her original diagnosis. Sun Hee's integrative healing journey included conventional treatment at a Philadelphia hospital and ongoing use of alternative medicine-with a ten day sojourn to the Gerson clinic in Mexico. This volume, documented with x-rays and other medical records, will be a beacon of hope for families in distress.

    A Beacon Of Hope...

    Cancer Healing Odyssey is a beacon of hope for those who are looking for an alternative method to help treat cancer. Almost everyone can say that their lives have been affected by cancer in one way or another, whether they have witnessed a loved one suffer through the disease and its grueling treatments, or had the sobering misfortune of being diagnosed with it themselves.

    This book captures the story of a brave, stage IV ovarian cancer patient who overcomes her small chance of survival by combining conventional (chemotherapy) and alternative treatments (The Gerson Therapy, Macrobiotic diet, juicing and detoxification methods). It was with the helpful knowledge of Sun Hee's husband, Sarto, that she was introduced to alternative nutritional and detoxification therapy after her grim diagnosis.

    When one is diagnosed with a terminal disease such as ovarian cancer, it is very easy to follow the contemporary, conventional methods advised by clinical doctors. Multiple rounds of chemotherapy leave the patient so exhausted that he/she barely has any strength to recover their sick and weakened body. It takes a certain amount of faith and courage to try alternative healing methods when one is unsure of the possible positive results and is guided by the fear of death. This book outlines the amazing improvements in Sun Hee's health as directly related to the introduction of the Gerson Therapy, and shows the reader that there are more natural ways for patients to reclaim their once healthy body.

    Reading this book is like having an important and insightful conversation with a good friend. It is a book about tackling fear and overcoming the often bleak odds of survival that cancer patients face everyday. Beyond the scope of Sun Hee's inspiring narrative, Cancer Healing Odyssey also proclaims a universally relevant message of the importance of taking care of your body and preserving the only chance you have to experience an amazing, fulfilled life on earth with the ones you love.

    I highly recommend this book for you, our friends, and family.

    I read this book in one day, I could not put it down. I was so amazed and curious that I reached out to Sarto to see how Sun Hee was doing. I had read other books about Gerson before, but this one was the most detailed experience - with test results & protocol adherence that I had come across. Needless to say, I interviewed Sarto about his book, and their journey for my site - healinghacker(dot)com. I look forwards to hearing about Sun Hee's continued good health.

    I would say this book is a MUST HAVE for anyone battling cancer or supporting someone who is. It provides a road map and source of inspiration that will aid you on your healing journey.

    I’m very grateful for this book. I have been searching for something like this for sometime now. Of all the healing diets that I have learned and tried, I like Gerson and Macrobiotics the best. And yet there are things in both that I prefer to modify. Combining the two really makes sense and agrees with my present physical condition. I learned a lot from this book.

    I like the Gerson way of using juicing and low-heat long cooked vegetables (easier on the digestion), and using coffee enemas to detoxify. But I also like the macrobiotic way of using brown rice and some miso soup for their healing properties.

    The author gives detailed information about how his wife’s end-stage ovarian cancer was healed using this method. He also gives diet and lifestyle guidelines to heal oneself of many chronic diseases by using a blend of the Gerson and Macrobiocs methods.

    This book is one of the very best that I read, and I have read many.

    I highly recommend this book.
