Dr. Carl O. Helvie was a relatively young man when he was diagnosed with lung cancer and told he had six months to live.
Instead, he made a decision to fight back with something other than traditional medicine. And today, this healthy 80-year-old man takes no prescribed medications and is one of the longest living lung cancer survivors.
Helvie’s latest book, You Can Beat Lung Cancer: Using Alternative/Integrative Interventions (Ayni Books), gives all of us hope for a healthier future. “Harsh chemicals, devastating surgeries and painful procedures for conventional cancer treatment are not your only option,” Helvie explains.
He offers practical, easy-to-understand information on the types, causes and diagnosis of lung cancer, how we as a society view nontraditional treatments, and evaluates different approaches to holistic and alternative treatments.
