Life Over Cancer: The Block Center Program for Integrative Cancer Treatment

If I had stage 4 cancer, were fighting for my life, and could only refer to one book, Life Over Cancer would be the one. I can say this with conviction after scouring through dozens and dozens of titles at Amazon and ordering several. Using some of the strategies in the Life Over Cancer to help bring my wife back from sliding further into the death spiral of cachexia (wasting and rapid loss of weight, loss of appetite, growing weakness).

For people too weak or not inclined to read a lot, during our recent visit to the Block Center, Dr. Block said that chapters 1, 4 and 13 contain the essence of the book. But I found chapters 14 through 18 also very helpful. The book is packed with insight into scientifically supported complementary therapies to conventional cancer care.

Chapter 1: Why Integrative Care Works

Chapter 4: The Anti-Cancer Diet

Chapter 13: The Healing Power of the Terrain

Chapter 14: Oxidation: Fighting Cancer Promoting Free Radicals

Chapter 15: Inflammation: Overcoming Cancer’s Fiery Side

Chapter 16: Immune Surveillance: Mounting the Immune Barricades

Chapter 17: Glycemia: Breaking Cancer’s Sugar Addiction

Chapter 19: Stress Chemistry: Creating Healthier Biorythms
