When I arrived, I contemplated staying for 2 hours but I remained for 24 days. Her patient had a scarred breast and when Rene questioned her about it, the woman shared how she had been cured of breast cancer some 30 years earlier by an Ojibwa Medicine Man. The woman explained that she had been traveling through the Canadian wilderness with her husband who was working as a mining prospector when she developed a growth on her breast.

And while their physicians deliver conventional, evidence-based therapies to treat the cancer, sometimes the cancer patient and his or her symptoms are not treated with equal skill. To manage their physical and emotional symptoms and promote health and well-being, most cancer patients and survivors use complementary therapies: Naturopathy, Ayurveda, herbalism, homeopathy, hypnosis, yoga, acupuncture, music therapy, macrobiotics, chelation therapy, colonics, hydrotherapy and many, many more.
But … are they safe? Are they effective? What problems do they address? What are the risks? When can they help? This unique and comprehensive book guides the way through the often confusing maze of complementary and alternative therapies promoted to cancer patients and survivors.
The functions, benefits, backgrounds and risks are clearly presented. Learning when, if and how to use them provides medical professionals, cancer patients and survivors with the information they need to better control the symptoms and side effects of cancer and its treatment. Unfortunately, using some of these therapies without this expert guidance can lead to medical complications, or worse. The Complete Guide to Complementary Therapies in Cancer Care is an invaluable resource in making educated health care decisions for managing life during and after cancer.
Through the wise and informed use of these approaches, cancer patients — whether just-diagnosed, during treatment or throughout Survivership are better able to manage the physical and emotional stresses that accompany cancer, leading to symptom control and improved quality of life.
Many focus specifically on cancer. Dr Cassileth comes across as a humane and passionate advocate for the needs of her patients. Cassileth pioneered the evidence-based approach to CAM.
In this comprehensive and focused book, she eloquently describes clinical practice, credibility and effectiveness, directing the reader to professional sources. As we enter the new global culture of self-directed health care, this is an essential part of both the home and institutional library. Now that medical carers all over the world are thoroughly aware of the limitations of single target therapies, and while they increasingly turn to holistic care to give greater satisfaction to their patients in a multiple target approach, the book will serve as an excellent reference for both patients and service providers.
I am recommending it to my patients. It gives a comprehensive overview with much needed critical input. Without a doubt, this is one of the best books on the subject: written by an expert intimately familiar with the subject, in language that is clear and simple yet to the point and correct.
Rene Caisse was very secretive about the Essiac tea recipe. The secret ingredient of Essiac tea was discovered by Sheila Snow who obtained letters from Dr. Here is what Rene Caisse stated regarding the importance of using the whole sheep sorrel plant, including sheep sorrel roots: "The herb that will destroy a cancer is the dog-eared sheep sorrel, sometimes called sourgrass. The entire plant must be used. You can buy the crushed leaves but they are no good alone. I found this out when I needed so much, when treating three to six hundred people afflicted with cancer every week for eight and a half years. I do know that the whole plant is needed.
