A very useful resource guide Nov. 18 2007
By Larry Trivieri - Published on
Format: Paperback
Though the title of this book builds on The Secret, the film version of which author Ben Johnson appeared in, there is much that Breast Wisdom offers of a practical nature that far surpasses the few useful tidbits of information that can be culled from the otherwise mostly "new-agey" pablum of The Secret itself. In large part, I suspect that this is due to the fact that Dr. Johnson has many years of experience helping patients realize that "cancer is not a death sentence." The benefit of that experience is clearly evident on every page of Breast Wisdom, and the guidelines that Dr. Johnson shares can potentially save the life of any women diagnosed with breast cancer. As someone who has researched and written about nonconventional healing methods for over 20 years, I am happy to recommend Breast Wisdom as a very worthy addition to the field of cancer titles that offer hope and viable treatment options to people with cancer.
Doesnt cover the basics. Not comprehensive Sept. 21 2015
By William Rasmussen - Published on
Format: Paperback
It just didn’t cover the causes and cutting edge treatments of breast cancer. I heard him speak on a interview and though he was holding back information to get people to buy his book. Instead it seems this book has a lot on the mental and emotional factor in breast cancer. The mental/ emotional stress certainly can suppress the immune system. however the rest of the book is full of incomplete information lacking in sufficient detail to be helpful for most people. If accurate in depth information on these issues was not available on mercolacom I would be more lenient in my criticism. But the author just hasen't included the latest information that is available in this book.
SAUNAS Avoidance of pesticides herbicides plastics etc the author mentioned. But he doesn’t say that these toxins are stored in breast tissue and the only effective way to get them out is to sweat them out in an infrared sauna.
POLYUNSATURATED OILS He mentions that coconut oil and olive oil are good oils and canola oil is a bad oil. However he does't really give the bottom line which is that the main problem is that all polyunsaturated oils are prone to heat damage making them even more toxic than trans fats. Almost all oils in the super markets are heat damaged including the olive oils. You have to get raw unprocessed oils to avoid the heat damage. They aren’t available in health food stores either.. You need to order them from small specialty manufactures. Foods Alive has low temperature pressed flax and chia oil. A search will show 3-4 companies making raw olive oil. Tropical Traditions sells a raw coconut oil. Doing a search for raw olive oils will give several sources of genuine olive oil. see Consumer Reports 9-2012 page -44-46
ALUMINUM. is a cause of breast cancer. But the author says you can avoid it by using deodorant crystals or stones. Not so, they contain natural colloidal minerals found in clay which is primarily aluminum silicates. Yes it may not be as easily absorbed as the aluminum chlorohydrates but aluminum silicates are absorbed through the skin Instead use Aubrey deodorants which is herbal extracts without any alum, colloidal minerals, or other ingredients that are aluminum under a deceptive name
COOKED PROTEIN Women who eat beef cooker more than rare or medium rare have a 400% increased incidence of cancer. Cooked soy foods are even worse than this because they are cooked for a longer time than meats. Barbecue over charcoal is maybe the most toxic cooking method. Yet its part of our unhealthy American diet. Ben Johnson's discussion of other causes of breast cancer was lacking. What he did discuss was of secondary importance not these primary factors..
SUGAR He warns against it but does not clearly state that any sugar whether it is processed or from natural fresh fruit can cause insulin release. Insulin suppresses the immune system. You need an active immune system to fight cancer. Most people are going to try to detoxify with fruit juice and this is a deadly mistake. Using Stevia from NuNaturals is a non bitter form and can be used as a sweetener. Erythritol is an alcohol sugar that has 5% of the glycemic effect of sugar for the same amount of sweetness. Most patients would rather die than give up the sweet taste of deserts, in their coffee etc. And that is exactly what happens to most of them if they don’t get off of sugar. The commercially available artificial sweeteners are deadly. See Mercola com for details. Giving cancer patients a safe sugar alternative at the start is absolutely essential to keep them off this dangerous food group.
Diabetics have a 300% increased incidence of cancer because cancer feeds on sugar. Cancer doesn't care if its natural and organic, if it raises blood sugar it will feed cancer.
KETOGENIC DIET ? He didn’t discuss this either even though a lot of women are having their breast tumors start shrinking in 3 weeks on this diet if they do it before radiation or other doctor prescribed drugs. Its a zero fruit, no carbohydrates, high in non starchy vegetables, low protein, high in raw coconut oil diet. Healthy cells can burn ketones made from fat/oil for energy, cancer cells cant. Fasting blood sugar is 70-100. The ketogenic diet drops blood sugar to 55-65, which is too low to allow the cancer to grow.
DETOXIFICATION. Everyone with cancer has lost the ability to eliminate toxins from the bowels, in the sweat, and urine. Sad but true. In addition to saunas one usually needs coffee/caffeine enemas at least once a day to get elimination through the bowels going again. Its the loose stool that increases the elimination of toxins by 10 times. What is eliminated with normal regular elimination even if its after every meal is not enough. Many regular people have slow transit time.. The author doest get into speeding up toxin elimination in an easy to understand and administer way. The body needs amino acids to make glutathione that acts to kick toxins out of the cells into the blood stream. n-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) is necessary to make glutathione. But large doses of NAC can cause detoxification symptoms. Taking small doses every hour is a better strategy.
So read this book for some of the aspects its strong in but read other books too.
Defeat Cancer by Connie Strasheim is not perfect but at least its full of useful information. The problem is that most cancer patients need detoxification but not all of the practitions/clinics profiled in the book have a strong detox program.

As an RN this book confirms what I had already begun to realize after 30 years as a nurse; that mammograms can cause damage, deodorants need to be aluminum free; and you are what you eat. This book has much more information as well including what to have in place of mammograms and a snapshot as to why our healthcare system just doesn't work anymore. Great educational book that most doctors would do well by to read.

One of the BEST sources of information about the experience of breast cancer I've ever found. Easy to understand and extremely helpful in formulating discourse with doctors and hospitals in order to reach informed decisions about choosing the right personal treatment.
