This completely revised edition of a 1994 title offers up-to-date information about the human body's own "host defense mechanisms" in the war on cancer, providing a multidisciplinary approach to treatment based on scientific studies and clinical experience. Quillin, a medical professional who has published extensively, has conducted nutrition studies with hundreds of patients in formal clinical settings. He discusses conventional therapies (chemotherapy, surgery), alternative therapies (macrobiotics, herbal and vitamin therapies), and related factors (psychosocial health, drugs, tobacco, immune dysfunctions). Appendixes list treatment referral agencies, mail-order nutrition products, suggested readings, nutritionally oriented doctors in the United States and Canada, and recipes using foods known to slow tumor growth. Written in an easy-to-read style, this work is informative, but some sections seem misplaced or redundant, and charts and graphs occasionally lack an identified source and are difficult to read. Still, this useful guide to authoritative alternatives in cancer treatment would be appreciated in public library or consumer health collections. --Virginia Lingle, Hershey Medical Ctr.

In the book,I loved the: 21 day approach to educate yourself and get started, detailed information it provides, list of websites it recommends to help find products and an informative CD for those who cannot read all the book due to their ailment.
Some of the main topics that really helped me recover enough to even start this process were: What cancer craves... --> sugar! and to keep it out of your diet as much as possible. I was never a sweets eater but I was having massive sugar cravings and it was a blessing to know why. Also, the protein types you need daily to help fight gave me the energy and health I needed to get out of bed and started. As for joint pain from the chemo, starting on salmon oils to increase my omega 3 that helps reduce inflammation and to reduce red meats with lots of omega 6 that increases inflammation was just incredible with instant results. This book is easy to read, very achievable and cost effective. Make a list and hit the local stores around you. I will admit the immunopower is expensive and unfortunately a bit of a luxury item. What I would like to see added for information is what symptoms to watch for from supplements if your diet is rich enough. And mouth care from side effects to chemo and Oral Thrush.Read more ›
I have read this book from cover to cover and have seen what putting Dr Quillin's advice into use can do. If you, anyone you love, care about or know are faced with cancer, you owe it to yourself and to them to read this book, put his words to the test. It's not hard to understand. I have only a high school diploma and a strong desire to bring my husband back to health. All you need is a desire to beat cancer and as Dr Quillin says "Hope, Optimism and a Fighting Spirit".
