One Woman's Story: Saying No to Conventional Cancer Treatment

Dear Dr Nalini Chilkov. Thank you for writing this book review and telling us how contemporary cancer treatment may be changing as hospitals begin to integrate alternative care units that include nutritional and dietary changes, acupuncture and other healing modalities.

As we become more health conscious, and take responsibility for our self care, we question the status quo. Society begins to question mammogram protocol as we review the effects of radiation. Chemotherapy changes into more targeted treatments and less toxicity.

We still have many unanswered questions regarding the increase in incidence of many cancers and at younger ages, including brain cancer, hodgkins, breast, pancreatic, etc.

We have made strides, but there is a long way to go. Bringing alternative approaches into the treatment options also brings more choices for those diagnosed with cancer. I'm looking forward to "YOU DID WHAT?: Saying No to Conventional Cancer Treatment" is a book written by Hollie and Patrick Quinn.
