Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This encyclopedic compendium of "natural" medicinal strategies offers encouragement and much sound advice to cancer patients and those seeking to ward off the disease. The authors, doctors of naturopathy, advocate complementing, not replacing, standard therapies with alternative therapies to prevent cancer, slow its progress and cope with the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. Their emphasis is on nutrition and diet, including vitamin and mineral supplements rich in antioxidants and heavy doses of herbal teas and fish oil, but they also cover acupuncture, hydrotherapy and massage. Their sober approach cites numerous medical studies, including those with conflicting results, to back up their claims, and warns readers when natural medicines are contraindicated or might interfere with standard medications. The sometimes bewildering amount of information is clearly summarized in bullet-pointed regimens tailored to specific kinds of cancer and treatment protocols, and accompanied with sample menus and recipes to make a low-fat, low-sodium, hot-dog-free (studies link the consumption of cured meats to childhood cancers such as leukemia) diet more palatable. While the scientific jury is still out on the efficacy of some of the authors' recommendations, their basic program-stop smoking and drinking, exercise, eat lots of whole grains, fruits and vegetables-is uncontroversial.

Library Journal
More than 35 books on alternative or complementary treatments for cancer have been published in the last ten years, not including those on specific cancers, but this title stands out. Besides being exceptionally well written and researched, it is also very reader-friendly. Authored by four naturopathic physicians and endorsed by the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, the book begins with a discussion of how to prevent cancer with natural medicine and diet. A somewhat complicated cancer-risk self-assessment survey appears here. The second section covers responding to a cancer diagnosis and key questions to ask. A chapter on cancer-fighting natural products explores what the authors call "the super eight" and includes dosages of these compounds for specific cancers. The mind-body connection is also explored at length. The third section, which is the most useful in the book, addresses the use of natural medicines to help combat the side effects of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. The extensive appendixes include daily plans for preventing and beating cancer and recipes. Recommended for consumer health collections not already possessing a recent work on the topic.
