Softcover UNUSED, LIKE NEW, NOT EX-LIBRARY, Marked remainder, 416 pages. Poll after poll makes it abundantly clear more and more Americans are turning to alternative medicine. ... Disillusioned with conventional medicine's answers, they are turning to more "unconventional" treatments. And while the origins and methods of these treatments vary, their philosophies have a common thread all attempt to eliminate the disease without killing the patient. In the past, much of the information on alternative therapies has been spotty and hard to come by. Now there is Options. Options has been written for those seeking a clearer understanding of the alternative therapies used in the treatment of cancer. It covers the full spectrum of available alternative methods, from biologically based approaches to immune-enhancing treatments, dietary and nutritional regimens, herbal and plant-based remedies, bioelectric medicine, and adjunctive therapies. It also includes the latest experimental advances in cancer treatment. Usin Read more Show Less

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Walters's book on alternative cancer treatments makes use of the elements found in science fiction and detective stories. Instead of soberly presenting a list of untraditional approaches to treatment, he dramatically unveils what he feels is a gigantic conspiracy to suppress the truth about noninvasive, nontoxic, unorthodox methods. He agrees with a remark he attributes to Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling: ``Everyone should know that the `war on cancer' is largely a fraud.'' This makes for some fascinating reading, but the science informing many of these treatments is unclear. The Rife generator, a bioelectric device that reportedly conquered terminal cancer in the 1930s, was decisively--and unfairly, argues Walter--discredited by the powers-that-were of conventional medicine. Essiac, an herbal tea reputed to cause remission in many cases of terminal cancer, and the Hoxsey Therapy, another herbal remedy linked to Native American and folk medicine, have been ignored or attacked by researchers and physicians. The many tales of miraculous cures are intriguing and seem to warrant further study, yet Walters believes that the testing of drugs and treatments on animals is not only cruel but ineffective--a view shared by few scientists. So the therapies in this book use people as guinea pigs. The reader is warned that while Walters's guide is ``not intended as endorsement for any particular therapies, it does illustrate how specific therapies work and may give hope and strength to readers.'' The safest advice Walters gives is this: ``Approach all therapies--conventional and alternative--with healthy skepticism and suspicion.'' (Nov.)
