In her New York Times bestseller, Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds, Dr. Kelly A. Turner, founder of the Radical Remission Project, uncovers nine factors that can lead to a spontaneous remission from cancer—even after conventional medicine has failed.
While getting her Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkley, Dr. Turner, a researcher, lecturer, and counselor in integrative oncology, was shocked to discover that no one was studying episodes of radical (or unexpected) remission—when people recover against all odds without the help of conventional medicine, or after conventional medicine has failed. She was so fascinated by this kind of remission that she embarked on a ten month trip around the world, traveling to ten different countries to interview fifty holistic healers and twenty radical remission cancer survivors about their healing practices and techniques. Her research continued by interviewing over 100 Radical Remission survivors and studying over 1000 of these cases. Her evidence presents nine common themes that she believes may help even terminal patients turn their lives around.

I am a cancer patient married to a psychotherapist who is integrative (let's see what there is out there that can help the patient.) I appreciate Kelly's approach because she puts a bright light on what's out there and then pretty much leaves it up the the reader to decide what's best for them. I also appreciate her case studies that high light the disconnect that occurs all too often between what the patient may intuit is best and what a decades old treatment template, no matter how dangerous or apparently not applicable dictates ought to be done. I've written my family and close friends and recommended the buy the book as a must have antidote to their dangerously stressful lives.
Excellent, meaningful, powerful and directive.
This is such an inspiring book! Thank you for gathering these ideas into a book so we all may benefit!!! It rings true, and has changed my life! I don't have cancer, but several family members have, and I am actively working on prevention. My body and mind already feel better after changing several things in my life because of this book.
I enjoyed the book and thought it very helpful. I'm re-reading it now and may read it more times. The methods used should also be helpful for any physical ailments.
While I fully agree with the theory that a good attitude can help any human through any difficult situation; this book is very misleading. There is no true study; rather anecdotal conjecture written by someone who clearly doesn't understand the medical condition. Truly dangerous to people in need of hope. While it might offer hopeful thought, I question the "research" and legitimacy of the interviewees used to create these hypotheses. I can't believe a doctoral degree was rewarded to this very incomplete and insufficient "study." Nor can I understand how this has gained any legitimate credibility. Dangerous.
