Publishers Weekly
Contreras, a physician who runs the Oasis of Hope cancer clinic in San Ysidro, Baja California, Mexico, offers an alternative point of view for those living with cancer. He notes that conventional treatment methods such as surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy are all quite traumatic. When appropriate, he prefers less toxic therapies and uses a holistic approach to treat the individual patient rather than the disease. His book discusses the factors that cause cancer environmental pollution, poor nutrition, stress and the things that people can do to prevent it, such as reduce stress, consume organic/natural foods and pure water, and adopt a healthy lifestyle. He also feels that prayer is essential. Contreras argues that prevention is key to our fight against cancer but that once diagnosed, patients must maintain a positive attitude and live with hope. U.S.-based doctors working in a similar vein include the likes of the best-selling Andrew Weil and Mitch Gaynor. This book will appeal to those interested in alternative cancer therapies with a Christian orientation. Those who need medical information about cancer should consult other sources. This book also contains appendix with data regarding types of cancer and mortality rates in both women and men. Recommended for all bookstores and public libraries. Barbara M.
