Overview

Boost Your Natural Cancer-Fighting Ability

If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with cancer, you need a strategy to fight back. And while your oncologist may prescribe a course of treatment that includes chemotherapy or radiation, you must understand that these powerful and sometimes effective weapons often have unwelcome and even dangerous consequences. Current international research shows that without a strong nutritional foundation, a patient's odds of surviving the treatments--let alone beating cancer--are greatly reduced. Conversely, patients receiving the proper balance of healthy foods, vitamins and minerals, and selected nutritional supplements show a striking increase in the effectiveness of their chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

Russell L. Blaylock, a respected doctor and clinical assistant professor of neurosurgery, shows you how easy it can be to fortify your nutritional status during this critical time. You'll learn:

  • Which everyday foods have uncommon cancer-fighting properties and how best to prepare them
  • Which supplements can help--or hurt--your chances
  • How certain fats and oils enhance your body's natural defenses
  • The exciting promise of plant chemicals called flavonoids, which enhance the effectiveness of chemotherapy while adding a significant layer of protection to healthy cells
  • And much more

You'll also get important information on dealing with the special problems faced by cancer patients, including fatigue, hair and weight loss, digestive problems, and other debilitating side effects. With this invaluable guide, anyone can become a more involved, more enlightened participant in their own cancer treatment.

Russell L. Blaylock, M.D., is a recently retired board-certified neurosurgeon with more than twenty years experience.
