Surviving Cancer Against All Odds

If you or a loved on has been diagnosed with cancer or been through the cancer treatment process, you know it's an ordeal that takes a lot out of the patient.

There is always a heavy emphasis on the unfortunate outcomes cancer can have; but what about those who survive cancer?

Despite medical evidence of the existence of statistically unexpected, or "spontaneous remission," from cancer, Kelly Turner, PhD oncology, was shocked to learn that no one was studying cases of people who recovered from cancer against all odds... without the help of conventional medicine, or after conventional medicine had failed.

Radical remission is when you heal from cancer and that healing process is medically inexplicable. For instance, when your doctor tells you that you're not going survive, but against all odds, you do.

Dr. Turner's dissertation included 10 years of research, traveling to 10 countries, 50 interviews with alternative healers and discussions with 20 Radical Remission cancer survivors about their healing techniques. She found that not only was this the first time someone was asking about radical remission, but the stories of the survivors were too good not to retell.

What are the nine most prevalent factors involved in documented cases of radical cancer remission?
  • Changing your diet
  • Herbs and supplements
  • Taking control of your health
  • Follow your intuition
  • Release suppressed emotions
  • Increase positive emotions
  • Embrace social support
  • Deepening spiritual connection
  • Have a strong reason for living
