MD/CEO of a hospital in Philadelphia who put his cancer in remission by changing his diet -- and was not exactly accepted by his medical community for so doing. The book is about his experience changing his diet and was obviously written while still alive, so it doesn't include the following:

They thought he had 18 months to live, but he lived more than 10 years longer and eventually died when he started eating a more varied diet again, including meat. Apparently he wanted to do some research at

This is the book I got from my mother's bookshelf that inspired me into greater vegetarianism and macrobiotics. A wonderful but tragic story on how to heal oneself with whole grains and vegetables especially when health situations are terminal. Might frighten those who fear cancer and the traditional medicine treatments that wear down the human body. Although macrobiotics is not proven as a cure for illness, Satillaro's personal story does inspire one to attempt a healthier lifestyle. Encouragin ...more

This book is about a physician who suffers from cancer, but after becoming acquainted with macrobiotic nutrition he heals, at first he don't believe that nutrition any connection with his illness, but he learns more about it and found that there are many things about food that he and other physicians doesn't know. A useful book , but has not enough information about macrobiotic.

As a doctor he has th

The reason I want to review this book is because I read it long ago shortly after it came out. It was recommended to me by a friend and I read the entire book on a couple of bus rides home from work. I was fascinated with his courage as a doctor to try something different, and fascinated about the macrobiotic diet. For whatever reason this story has stayed in my mind for 35 years.

I thought that this was very interesting just as an autobiography and/or memoir.

This doctor got cancer and cured it by following a macrobiotic diet.

Some people have questioned the facts of this case but they have been proven wrong.

I don't think that macrobiotics is necessarily the most effective cure for cancer--I think there are more effective natural cures such as essiac--but this whole area is something that should be looked at.

It is interesting that the scientific and medical tests he was un
