Discover the nine keys that can unlock your pathway to dramatic healing.
Kelly Turner, Ph.D., a researcher and psychotherapist who specializes in integrative oncology, gives the reader the results of her research on over a thousand cases of Radical Remission—people who have defied a serious or even terminal cancer diagnosis with a complete reversal of the disease. The results of this study, which focused on seventy-five factors, include astounding insights of the nine key factors that Dr. Turner found among nearly every Radical Remission survivor she has studied and an explanation of how the reader can put these practices to work in his or her own life.
Every chapter of Radical Remission includes dramatic stories of survivors' journeys back to wellness. The realization that the possibilities for healing are more abundant than we had previously known gives people concrete ways to defy the overwhelming prognosis of terminal cancer. This is a book for those who are in the midst of receiving conventional cancer treatment, who are looking for other options because that treatment has done all that it can, or who seemingly have no options left but still feel that the future holds the possibility of hope.
Kelly Turner's Radical Remission shows that it is possible to triumph over cancer, even in situations that seem hopeless. Encompassing diet, stress, emotions, spirituality, and other factors that profoundly affect our health and well-being, Turner's discussion of how our choices can cause the seemingly miraculous to happen will open your eyes to what is possible when it comes to lasting healing.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I am a cancer patient married to a psychotherapist who is integrative (let's see what there is out there that can help the patient.) I appreciate Kelly's approach because she puts a bright light on what's out there and then pretty much leaves it up the the reader to decide what's best for them. I also appreciate her case studies that high light the disconnect that occurs all too often between what the patient may intuit is best and what a decades old treatment template, no matter how dangerous or apparently not applicable dictates ought to be done. I've written my family and close friends and recommended the buy the book as a must have antidote to their dangerously stressful lives.
Excellent, meaningful, powerful and directive.
This is such an inspiring book! Thank you for gathering these ideas into a book so we all may benefit!!! It rings true, and has changed my life! I don't have cancer, but several family members have, and I am actively working on prevention. My body and mind already feel better after changing several things in my life because of this book.
I enjoyed the book and thought it very helpful. I'm re-reading it now and may read it more times. The methods used should also be helpful for any physical ailments.
While I fully agree with the theory that a good attitude can help any human through any difficult situation; this book is very misleading. There is no true study; rather anecdotal conjecture written by someone who clearly doesn't understand the medical condition. Truly dangerous to people in need of hope. While it might offer hopeful thought, I question the "research" and legitimacy of the interviewees used to create these hypotheses. I can't believe a doctoral degree was rewarded to this very incomplete and insufficient "study." Nor can I understand how this has gained any legitimate credibility. Dangerous.
