Movie Review: Forks Over Knives – The Basis for a Cancer Fighting Diet

forks-over-knives-movieposterForks over Knives, by Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, is one of the most important movies on health and lifestyle and you need to watch it!  This is NOT a movie about dieting or being a vegan.  It’s about what we need to eat to be healthy.

The stories of  patients on death’s door, sent home to prepare for death, who were completely healed by these Doctors is simply mind boggling. When you see it, you can not help but be moved and motivated to take your health more seriously and reconsider what you eat.

If you have Netflix, you can watch the entire movie there, along with the extended interview version.

This is the description from the Youtube post

What has happened to us? Despite the most advanced medical technology in the world, we are sicker than ever by nearly every measure.

Two out of every three of us are overweight. Cases of diabetes are exploding, especially amongst our younger population. About half of us are taking at least one prescription drug. Major medical operations have become routine, helping to drive health care costs to astronomical levels. Heart disease, cancer and stroke are the country’s three leading causes of death, even though billions are spent each year to “battle” these very conditions. Millions suffer from a host of other degenerative diseases.

Could it be there’s a single solution to all of these problems? A solution so comprehensive but so utterly straightforward, that it’s mind-boggling that more of us haven’t taken it seriously?

FORKS OVER KNIVES examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the so-called “diseases of affluence” that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering yet under-appreciated researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.

Book Review: Anticancer, A New Way of Life

Anticancer-a-new-way-of-lifeAnticancer, A New Way of Life by David Servan-Schreiber, MD PhD

“This book is part memoir, part science, and part advice book. Servan-Schreiber, a psychiatrist was conducting an experiment. When his subject didn’t show up for a brain scan, he volunteered to be scanned and discovered a tumor in his brain that was malignant. He describes his treatment for brain cancer and how he was told that there was nothing he could do to improve his prognosis other than just getting through the treatment. But he researched and found many studies that show that there are many ways that people can decrease their likelihood of getting cancer or improve their outcome if they have cancer. Filled with data and great recommendations, this is a book that should be read by everyone. ”

I really like this book. Recommended.

Book Review: Cancer, Step Outside the Box

cancer-step-outside-the-boxby Ty Bollinger.  This is the first book I read about Cancer.  I have to thank my good friend, Christine Alexander, for giving me this book while I was still in the hospital recovering from surgery.

This book explains the facts and deceptions about cancer and cancer treatments, it documents multiple cases of the suppression of effective natural cancer treatments.  It details the most potent advanced cancer treatment protocols, and it clearly explains the relationship between nutrition and cancer.

This is a comprehensive book on alternative cancer treatments and health. Once you learn about the many natural options to treat cancer it can be a bit overwhelming, but that’s a positive problem for sure.

Book Review: Cancer-Free by Bill Henderson

cancer-free-book-200x300No library of cancer cure books is complete without Bill Henderson’s book, Cancer-Free: Your Guide to Gentle, Non-toxic Healing.  In it’s 4th edition with co-author, Dr. Carlos M. Garcia, MD, it’s a classic that has helped thousands of people become cancer free, as the title says.

Bill discusses the history of cancer treatment and the current state of treatments offered by Allopathic medical practitioners in the world today.  These methods fall into 3 basic approaches: Surgery, Chemotherapy and Radiation.  Surprisingly, modern medicine does not advocate preventive alternatives or lifestyle changes before or after treatment.  Suffice it to say that this is largely because natural methods can not be patented and sold by big Pharma companies and medical practitioners can not get paid for prevention and natural treatments they do not prescribe.

This is where Bill and so many others come into the picture.  Like so many other people who have traveled this road, Bill has made a study of all the alternative methods he can find for treating cancer and has settled in on the ones with the best results.  While making no promises, the testimonials are clear. The results speak for themselves.

Bill offers a step-by-step approach to cancer treatment and your overall health and well being.  His dietary approach is based on a natural cancer-free diet along with the Budwig protocol and a number of supplements that he’s determined are best used to stimulate and strengthen the immune system.  He also advocates exercise and stress reduction in all areas of your life.

If you’ve gotten a cancer diagnosis, you need to read this book.  If nothing else, you need to know that there are viable and affordable natural approaches to healing that don’t cost an arm and a leg.  You don’t have to go to a clinic in Mexico just to heal yourself.  You just have to heal yourself.  Bill offers a path that cuts through the clutter and gives you a direct path to becoming cancer free.

I’ve also chosen to follow this path.  I will let you know on this blog how I’m doing.  Good luck to you on your journey.
