Anti-Cancer - A New Way of Life by Dr David Servan-Schreiber
When David Servan-Schreiber, a dedicated scientist and doctor, was diagnosed with brain cancer, it changed his life. Confronting everything that medicine knows about the illness, the little known workings of the body’s natural cancer-fighting capacities, and his own will to live, he found himself on a fifteen-year journey from disease and relapse into scientific exploration, and finally to health.
Combining part memoir with a clear explanation of what makes cancer cells thrive and what inhibits them, and describing both conventional and alternative ways to slow and prevent cancer, Anti-cancer is revolutionary in its clarity. It is a moving story of a doctor’s inner and outer search for healing; radical in its discussion of the environment, lifestyle, and trauma; and inspiring and cautionary in its certainty that cancer cells lie dormant in all of us - and we all must care for the “terrain” in which they exist.
