There's nothing "radical" about the advice in this book, but there are lots of nourishing stories and ideas. This book's title should have been "Let's Freak Out About Cancer... in 2015!" New revisions every year. It's kind of a handbook to what people do these days socio-spiritually to cope with all the sequelae of cancer and/or its treatment. It's fascinating in an anthropological sense, hearkening back to the Kellogg days of alternative health treatments for hysteria. I was struck not by how d ...more

One of my chemo nurses recommended this book to me. Read after very-near fatal experince while on chemotherapy. I highly recommend this book.Traditional medicine does not have all the answers when it comes to cancer, even though I continue with traditional therapies I have found that many of the suggestions in this book have helped me deal with my diagnosis. I also have tried some of the alternative approaches that have slowed the progression of my dieease.

I have to thank this author for writing this book and including so many examples of patients who have had radical remissions. This book came at a time we are helping a loved one suffering with 4th stage prostate cancer which has moved into his bones and spread.. it's been pretty emotionally painful and horrible to see the suffering that Cancer brings. We have been uplifted and inspired by this author and look forward to opportunities to see her at upcoming live events. I would like to interview ...more

I have read this book twice in just a couple of weeks. This is a must read for any cancer patients or anyone with family or friends that have cancer. This is by far one of the best books I ever read. It includes inspiring stories of cancer patients, and it gives you detailed steps on how to beat cancer. The lessons in here were life changing, they create hope for all cancer patients to achieve a radical remission. The only thing I am mad about is that I didn't read this book sooner. The author i ...more

While I very much enjoyed this book, I would have liked to know that there were objective differences between those who did and did not experience remission. This is really a book about how people make meaning of their unlikely survival. I am sure many people who don't experience remissions do similar things in an effort to prolong their survival. Therefore, it's still hard to know what the difference is between those who do and don't go into remission. What it due to the behaviors and practices ...more

This title is incredibly misleading. Turner is looking for shared traits among statistical anomalies, then leading you to believe (but never explicitly outlining) that following her suggestions would lead you to healing. She admits she has no scientific data to backup her claims, though she has plenty of anecdotes. It's a clear case of survivorship bias.

If she had stayed away from nutritional recommendations, many which I've found to be false based on and reputable medical instituti

As a cancer conqueror, I was expecting a great read as I began this book! What could be more encouraging than learning from someone who had researched and talked to over a thousand radical survivors of cancer and asking what they had done to bring about those changes? I certainly wanted to hear what they had to say. The author noticed a pattern of nine factors that seemed pivotal in many of these accounts of healing. Of these nine factors, only two are physical things I could do- radically chang

The book gives a very collective and comprehensive digest of hundreds of people recovered from cancer using alternative treatment. It is not exaggerating the importance of nonconventional treatment but objectively analyzed the common ways these recovered patient adopted. Each chapter is composed of a single key factor, underlying rationality or scientific proof, sounding examples and technics. It also incorporated some theory of Chinese medicine and other Asian or ancient perspective for healing ...more

An inspiring and well-written book about people who have survived cancer, and some of the ways in which they have addressed their disease. Chapters include: Radically changing your diet; Taking control of your health; Following your intuition; Using herbs and supplements; Releasing suppressed emotions; Increasing positive emotions; Embracing social support; Deepening your spiritual connection; and Having strong reasons for living. It could have been called: a blueprint for living. Reccommended.

This book is AWESOME. I recommend that anyone who either had/has or might get or know anyone with either cancer or any chronic disease read this. I feel that it validated some of my beliefs already. I would never advise anyone to skip western medical treatment but think that the principles in this book would help anyone with just about any diagnosis.

There was a lot of great information pulled from many sources that would benefit cancer patients and I found myself highlighting many things I want to go back and read later. After interviewing so many patients Dr turner highlighted the 9 things that came up in each one of her interviews as helping the patient recover from cancer. That said, many of the case studies in each chapter rubbed me the wrong way and I skipped over a lot of them. It is a great book though to remind us the importance of ...more

Radical Remission was a book I wasn't overly interested in, despite a good friend telling me how great it was. For some reason, the cancer aspect didn't peak my curiosity, even though I am interested in alternative healing methods for cancer patients. Having finally read it, I can say this is an amazing book that is less about cancer, and more about natural healing and ways to "miraculously" heal your body that are not so mysterious after all.

If you are in any way interested in holistic living,

This is one of the profoundest, most positive books I've ever read. Incredible. It was a brilliant idea to study the medical anomaly of radical cancer remissions and find the commonalities in the people who recovered. Different types of cancer have occurred in my immediate family and our questions were always why? why? why? Well here are all the answers. If any book comes close to explaining the meaning of life, this is it! This book also offers amazing insights into the prevention of cancer too ...more

This is an astonishing book!!! Well worth your time. The author, a medical researcher, notices that doctors will say that some patients experience remission from cancer, but they Never Follow Through - asking the patient what they did!!! So this author does ask, interviewing over 1,000 people who have experienced recovery from cancer though their doctors expected them to die. Each chapter describes one of the 9 factors that come up the most, with many engaging personal stories, and an in-depth a ...more

I am happy to report that I do not have cancer. However, when I hear of a book that offers healing methods or suggestions for turning around something as intense as this disease, I always think that those things are probably good suggestions to help avoid it in the first place. I heard about this book through Kris Carr's website, where I saw an interview with the author, Kelly Turner. I was impressed by her and what she had to say, so I picked up the book. I found it a good read and full of insp ...more

Aloin lukemaan tätä kirjaa isäni sairastettua pidempään aggressiivista, metastoitunutta vakavaa M1c-tason eturauhassyöpää. Kun isäni menehtyi syöpään ennen kuin ehdin viimeistellä kirjan, meinasin lopettaa sen lukemisen. Kirjan ensimmäinen puolisko on informatiivinen ja jopa mielenkiintoinen, mutta tarinat alkavat kyllästyttämään viimeistään siinä vaiheessa kun tieteellisen näytön puuttuminen ja epäuskottavat tarinat nostavat enemmän päätään.

I've started to read the 1st chapter on the 29th of March with my mum while she was laying on the hopsital's bed waiting for her weekly blood transfusion.
Mum unexpectedly passed away the day after. And we didn't even finish the 1st chapter.
So .. it was really hard to grab it again, and it was very emotional to read. Specially that I've been struggling so much with the "what ifs". But I had to, because I know that many people are still fighting this horrible disease and they might need this boo

Kelly Turner's research on people with cancer who have had "radical remissions" offers her beliefs on what the nine key factors are to achieving this state of health.

This book seeks to identify the factors at work for those who survive serious cancer diagnoses. Turner looked to those survivors to determine commonalities in their approaches. This strikes me as valuable work, but Turner started to make me wonder in the introduction, in which she states, “ one was seriously investigating these cases”, which flew in the face of my experience reading Love, Medicine, and Miracles by Siegel and Getting Well Again by the Simontons many years ago. In the first c ...more

During my breast cancer treatment, the nutritionist at the cancer center recommended I read this book. It has taken me two years to finish it...not because it wasn't fascinating and helpful...but because reading it just reminded me of what I was or did go through. I've finished now, and as someone who is in remission, the book provides empowerment. There are things I can do to protect against recurrence instead of just worrying that cancer is lurking behind every corner.

I like this book because of the unusual stories of healing. It reinforces to me that healing is available outside the bounds of traditional standard medicine. It is available sometimes without standard medicine at all.

God has built into a powerful forces in our bodies and minds for healing. I rated this book as. Four, because I think some of the dealers as well as survivors have a disintegrated worldview.At the same time though they accessed the power God has given them.

I have to start by saying that this was much better than I anticipated. To put it bluntly, it's not at all the hogwash that I expected. Instead it was well-written, balancing both personal stories and actual research studies to support the author's hypotheses. It wasn't a slog to get through, nor was it too focused on anecdotal evidence.

This book isn't going to cure you. What it will do is provided a series of actions you can take that have proven to be most common amongst radical remission pati

Such an interesting subject - miraculous healing. It is true, that some people can heal when all medical hope is gone. However, how or why they heal is a complete mystery in many cases. How to examine such phenomena?

Kelly Turner made it her PhD topic and interviewed many survivors of cancer who had spontaneous remission. She established, through interviews, nine aspects common to all.

It is an inspirational topic and the subject is handled sensitively and hopefully. Strange things happen and radi

I've always been curious about this subject. When I came across the book, I had to read it. Turner was a counselor for cancer patients when she heard a radical remission story for the first time. She was astounded. Could this be true? Why wasn't everyone talking about it? Why weren't scientists researching how it happened? She soon found more than a thousand stories of radical remission and what she discovered is that none of their oncologists were interested in how they did it. They were even t ...more

A dear friend and I were having lunch with her Mother who was reading this book. She talked about how she was it was recommended by the 700 Club and decided to read it. She said it was so interesting and the more we talked, the more I wanted to read the book!

It was so good and informative that I have shared it with many friends and even strangers. I have ordered extra copies share and to give as gifts.

If you haven’t read this book, you should! Knowledge is power. Get healed and stay healthy!

This book was written by a social worker who mainly deals with patients who have cancer. She interviewed hundreds of peole who have chosen to deal with their cancer in ways that don't always include western medicine. She is not advocating it but instead puts together nine things that these people seem to have in common. It is very interesting reading for anyone going through cancer treatment of any kind.

If you, or someone you know, is dealing with a cancer diagnosis, this book is full of inspirational stories of love, determination, and a burning desire to live as well as the nine most recurring actions common to those who have embraced and overcome their diagnosis. I highly recommend this book for anyone, not just those facing a life-changing disease, who want to live a healthier and more fulfilling life.

Really inspiring book. I was diagnosed with bladder cancer and was fortunate that it was caught early. I have the tumors removed but I’m following many of these guidelines to horribly prevent recurrence. I cut out almost all processed sugars, breads and meat (2 meals a week at most) and added a lot of exercise. I’m starting to work on my mind now to eliminate depression.

The most amazing book about healing naturally from cancer! An oncologist studies over 1,000 cases of people healing themselves and they all have 9 things in common! I listened to this as an audio book and I finished the cd and was ready to start it again!!!!

Cancer is complex and won't ever have a "cure" in the sense of a drug or a one fits all healing journey. This book gives you so many tools to use and ways to prevent cancer while still healthy.

Highly recommend!!!!!
