Anti-cancer books: Alternative cancer bookshop

Anyone contemplating alternative cancer treatments cannot afford to be ignorant or ill-informed on the subject, and just having a sketchy idea of what to do could be disastrous. Owning a good range information  to study and refer to is a big comfort.

They say that ONE out of every TWO men will be diagnosed with cancer, and TWO out of every THREE women will be diagnosed with cancer - at some point in their lives. So if you do not have cancer, get busy reading. And If you do have a diagnosis of cancer, get busy reading!  Cancer is no longer a rarity that effects only a tiny unlucky few. No person or family is immune. 

Anti-Cancer Bookshop:

Are you looking for the best information on how to beat cancer with alternative methods?

Do you feel lost in the maze of confusing free info on the Internet?

Fear not! If you are looking for reliable information there are some fabulous books out there that offer you a valuable source of anti-cancer wisdom. And with Amazon, you can check the huge resource of reader feedback to help you sort the wheat from the chaff! You can also often read excerpts before you buy, which I thoroughly recommend.

The more you know and understand about cancer, the less you will fear it. Contrary to how it is often portrayed, cancer is not an uncontrollable monster out to kill you. It is a malfunction (a system failure) that can be rectified. The cancer industry thrives by promoting FEAR suggesting cancer has no cure, and your only hope is to attack it with surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation. This fear drives people to conclude they have no choice but to sign up. But in most situations there are far better options to consider. Options that are non-toxic, safe, and highly effective.

No one book has all the answers, and different cases often have differing needs. But building up a store of  knowledge and insights is the safest and best way to go forward.


Beware! A little knowledge is a dangerous proven in this hilarious (but shocking) short video!
To take on the job of healing yourself requires significant knowledge and insights. The folly of not having enough know-how, is demonstrated in this video, when a man involved in the current "ice bucket challenge" craze got a complete novice to take the controls of this digger...What could possibly go wrong? Watch and see!

Personal Health library:

I personally built a small library of books about beating cancer, determined to not die of ignorance. It is important not to be ignorant about facts or knowledge that could be the difference between surviving and not surviving! You will gain important options and insights that may save your life. What price can we put on that? Every bit of wisdom - and smarter way of doing things - can add survival advantage.

Never Fear Cancer Again: How to Prevent and Reverse Cancer

By Raymond Francis M.Sc
Most cancer research dollars have been wasted by asking the wrong questions, looking in the wrong places, and recycling the same failed approaches while expecting different results. Conventional cancer treatments damage health, cause new cancers, lower the quality of life, and decrease the chances of survival. In fact, most people who die from cancer are not dying from cancer, but from their treatments!
That's the bad news. Here's the good news: We can end the cancer epidemic. In Never Fear Cancer Again, readers will gain a revolutionary new understanding of health and disease and will come to understand that cancer is a biological process that can be turned on and off, not something that can be surgically removed or destroyed with radiation or toxic chemicals. So whether cancer has already been diagnosed or if prevention is the concern, it is possible to turn off the wayward production of these malfunctioning cells once and for all by reading this book and implementing its strategies.
The key to any disease has one simple cause: malfunctioning cells that are created by either deficiency or toxicity. By switching off the malfunctioning cells, you switch off the cancer. Never Fear Cancer Again guides readers along six pathways that cause deficiency or toxicity at the cellular level: nutritional path, genetic path, medical path, toxin path, physical path, and the psychological path. By making key lifestyle changes, people truly have the power to take control of cancer and transform their health. This radically different, yet holistic approach restored author Raymond Francis back to health just as it has helped thousands of others, many of whom were told they had no other options or that their cancer was incurable. Take back your health with this book and never fear cancer again.


Raymond Francis is an internationally recognized leader in the field of optimal-health maintenance. A chemist by training and a graduate of M.I.T., Raymond is the author of the bestselling books Never Be Sick Again and Never Be Fat Again. His most recent work was a breakthrough book on how to prevent and reverse cancer, Never Fear Cancer Again. Raymond has been cited as "one of the few scientists who has achieved a breakthrough understanding of health and disease." He is the creator of a revolutionary and simplified understanding of health that can be taught to a child and yet is powerful enough to cure terminal cancer. This teaching tool is called the Beyond Health Model; it employs the concept of there being only one disease with two causes and six pathways.

Here is an interesting book on the Ketogenic Diet approach, as described by the author below:

The Cantin Ketogenic Diet: For Cancer, Type I Diabetes & Other Ailments

Elaine Canti
This book is about my son's journey with type I diabetes and my own journey with aggressive breast cancer. It is about how I linked type I diabetes with epilepsy and how this helped me link cancer with epilepsy as well. I modified the traditional ketogenic diet used at Johns Hopkins Medical Center to treat epilepsy. I then used my own version of the diet to make my breast cancer tumor disappear in about two weeks. It is also about using my modified ketogenic diet for my son who is a type I diabetic, and him being able to eat without needing any insulin and without doing any calorie restrictions. This is my diet of hope -along with the research that comes from my heart- that I am sharing with you. "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." ~Hippocrates

Cancer as a Metabolic Disease: On the Origin, Management, and Prevention of Cancer

By Thomas Seyfried Ph.D.
The book addresses controversies related to the origins of cancer and provides solutions to cancer management and prevention. It expands upon Otto Warburg's well-known theory that all cancer is a disease of energy metabolism.  However, Warburg did not link his theory to the "hallmarks of cancer" and thus his theory was discredited.  This book aims to provide evidence, through case studies, that cancer is primarily a metabolic disease requiring metabolic solutions for its management and prevention.  Support for this position is derived from critical assessment of current cancer theories.  Brain cancer case studies are presented as a proof of principle for metabolic solutions to disease management, but similarities are drawn to other types of cancer, including breast and colon, due to the same cellular mutations that they demonstrate.
This book is only recommended for those involved in serious research, as it is not easily available, and therefore expensive. However, it is possibly a very important book on the subject of cancer:

Miracle Soup for Cancer

Is it logical to try to heal a sick person with poison? Or is it more logical to employ natural substances with known strong anti-cancer effects, while building the immune system and general health? I chose the second way!

My Miracle Anti-Cancer Soup Regime...

Following my decision to treat my own cancer by alternative methods I came across a book in my local library called Miracle Soups. It had over 70 recipes for all types of ailment, featuring all the best ingredients for healing and improving health, so I was inspired to create something similar for cancer.

Healing soup... Image:
I was aware that the mainly raw type of foods I was eating throughout the warmer months would be less ideal in the winter months here in the UK. Therefore it seemed a good idea to make soups the mainstay of my diet for a number of months.... SOUPS FULL OF POWERFUL ANTI-CANCER GOODNESS!

The ingredients can vary to some degree, but the main hardcore anti-cancer stuff is as follows...
  1. Turmeric
  2. Black pepper
  3. Sweetheart cabbage
  4. Garlic
  5. Onions
  6. Various Vegetables
Various vegetables can include diced potatoes, turnip, carrots, brown rice, peas, beans, etc, depending on your preferences. The most important ingredient in this soup is turmeric, and the soup is designed to be a vehicle for that cancer fighting superstar. Onions and garlic play a strong anti-cancer supporting role. Cabbage surprisingly is also a very strong cancer fighting food. In his book Foods to Fight Cancer, Professor Beliveau has a whole chapter devoted to cabbage entitled "Cancer Hates Cabbage" and presents all the impressive scientific data regarding this family of vegetables.

Note: How to increase the power of this soup 1000 fold!
Black pepper is proven to hugely increase to absorption of curcumin (the key cancer fighting ingredient in turmeric) 1000 fold!  Thus turmeric /curcumin is far more powerful when black pepper is added. Source: Foods to Fight Cancer: Essential foods to help prevent cancer

Turmeric Research and cancer: Video 17 mins.

What I present here is more a concept, than a recipe.
There is the option to vary the ingredients to suit, adding rice or whatever you prefer as long as not unhealthy. Crushed and chopped cloves of garlic and chopped onions are first sauteed in olive oil, then I add stock, then continue to add various vegetable's etc to create your own soup variation based on known anti-cancer prowess. Obviously it is important to mix ingredients in regard to flavour, including a variety of spices. In other words, you can mix and match to some degree, provided you usually include the main cancer-busting core ingredients above. However, taste should remain secondary to medicinal goodness.

Anti-Cancer Foods:

According to the book Foods to Fight Cancer by Professor Richard Beliveau and Dr Denis Gingras, a host of anti-cancer vegetables exist and include:
  • Cabbage
  • Spinach
  • Spring greens
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels sprouts
  • soya beans
  • Garlic
  • Onions
  • Mushrooms
I recommend you read this book to get a full grasp of how these foods help fight cancer, and the phytochemicals involved. A number of scientific studies are shown, along with graphs relating to diet and disease.  Foods to Fight Cancer: Essential foods to help prevent cancer

How to make an simple vegetable soup...
The helpful video demo below is one I chose to follow as a basic way to make great vegetable soups... by The Frugal Chef. Such soup is easy to make, cheap, and wholesome. But importantly, you can improvise with ingredients to suit your own aims.

Note: The value of soups...
Unlike when we boil vegetables, where many of the nutrients are lost and thrown away in the water, soups retain all the vital vitamins and minerals etc...and also the cancer fighting phytonutients we desire.

Meat is to be avoided, - the early months of most alternative cancer treatments, to preserve and maintain vital enzymes thought to help the body fight and eliminate cancer. Later, one may be able to add a little meat such as chicken, if desired, to widen the range of nutrients consumed.

Note on enzymes: Yes most enzymes are lost in the cooking process, even in soups of this kind. However, one would normally be getting plentiful enzymes from other areas of ones diet, such as raw fruits and vegetables, or through a juicing regime, - or both.

This "Miracle Soup" is suggested as [part of] a sound anti-cancer regime, but may not be recommended for inclusion for every type of cancer protocol, as some have different objectives regarding strategy on the biological level. However, as this is simply healthy food, it is probably unlikely to interfere with most approaches. If in doubt, consult a relevant alternative practitioner.

The effects of eating this soup were almost instant! Within a short while I could feel the stuff circulating in my legs and body, almost fizzing!  A rather strange feeling, but something powerful seemed to be going on. I must admit that taste wise, this was not likely to receive a Michelin Star! Nevertheless, chemotherapy is one of the most unpleasant and dangerous substances known to man, so I know which I prefer. Thus I ate this (with multigrain bread and butter) most evenings as a dedicated regime in the first winter following diagnosis and surgery in the previous spring.

You have to play hardball with cancer, not fiddle about. This is a good way to get plenty of anti-cancer goodness into your system.

Essentially at that time I was following the Bill Henderson Protocol, which includes the Budwig diet. This anti-cancer soup regime was my own invention based on similar seen in the Miracle Soups book., and information from books like Foods That Fight Cancer. Get yourself a copy now.

This miracle anti-cancer soup helped

me to both keep warm and also remain

cancer free!
