Kelly Turner, an oncology researcher, wondered why some patients experienced a “Radical Remission” and others didn’t. Because no one had ever studied the question, she began reviewing more than 1,000 cases of such remissions, which are already published in medical journals, and interviewed more than 100 survivors to find the answer.
She traveled to 10 countries to interview 50 alternative healers about their healing techniques. She wanted to learn if there were commonalities behind these cases, and discovered that there in fact were.
Dr. Turner presents her experience and evidence in a new book, Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds.
Turner, who has a Ph.D. in cancer research from the University of California, Berkeley, is not asking that anyone abandon conventional therapy. She does, however, give instructions on how to add healing factors to the mix that are often overlooked.
“If we want to win the war on cancer,” says Turner, “we should learn from those who have already won.”
The research initially identified more than 75 different factors that may play a role in radical remission. After tabulating the frequency of each factor, she cites the nine most prevalent factors involved in documented cases of radical remission, which are:
- 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
- Having strong reasons for living
Radical remissions have been featured on the Good News Network over the years, including the story of a woman who overcame a deadly brain tumor by radically changing her diet and using supplements, in addition to radiation treatments and cultivating a positive attitude: Healing on Her Mind; Surviving a Brain Tumor. In another story, a doctor developed a particular form of citrus pectin that is easily absorbed by the body to help stage 4 cancer patients recover their health: “Nutraceutical” Citrus Formula Helps Beat Incurable Cancers.
