In Somers’s book, Knockout: Interviews with Doctors Who Are Curing Cancer – And How to Prevent Getting It in the First Placeshe interviews doctors who are successfully using innovative cancer treatments.  The main message of her book is that our cancer treatment should focus on building up’ the immune system.
Somers’s argues that conventional cancer treatments such as surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy  take a destructive approach to treatment and ‘tear our bodies down.’  Instead, she suggest that we focus on lifestyle and nutrition changes to help build up our bodies to fight cancer.

In her book, Somers shows us that we have more than one option.  She teaches us about the risk factors associated with the popular harmful drug-based therapies used to treat cancer and explores some of the safe and natural alternative treatments that are currently available. Somers also shares many stories from those who have used these revolutionary methods, including herself.

Somers shares her personal choices and outlines an array of options from doctors across the country:
– Without chemotherapy, radiation and sometimes even without surgery.
– Combining standard treatments with therapies that build up the immune system
– Outlining ways to truly live with the disease

Some of the doctors featured in this book are:

Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski who has discovered a means of battling cancer by placing peptides, that otherwise are absent, into the bloodstream of patients. He also employs nutritional supplements and diet.

Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, another recognized physician in his field,  uses pancreatic enzymes and nutritional approaches including detoxification routines and individualized diets to treat cancer.

Dr. Russell Blaylock, author of Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients. After 26 years of practicing neurosurgery, he now devotes his time to now supplying cancer patients and their families with the latest nutritional methods to build immunity and fight cancer

Since prevention is the best course  Somers also re-emphasizes the importance of lifestyle, diet, and exercise routine’s impact on your risk of developing cancer.

Another informative book.  I recommend that everyone reads this and is aware that they have options!

Be Well,
