When first time in your life you hear about cancer, you think it is end of your life. But it is not true. Human body has fighting capacities. Each cancer client should understand and confront cancer. There is very special surviving life after cancer. Just when cancer is diagnosed, life is totally changed. You should clearly understand how to survive. Each type of cancer has its own anticancer strategy. At the same time, many anticancer approaches are same for all kinds of cancer.
First, never give up and fight cancer. Don’t hesitate to accept support from family members, friends and other cancer survivors.
Second, trust modern medicine and follow all medical protocols. It is not easy, sometimes painful and it could be difficult to accept psychologically. But it should be done.
Third, change your lifestyle and adapt it to anticancer strategies – anticancer diet, anticancer supplements, anticancer physical activities, etc.
It is always useful to read about people who survive cancer and learn details of their difficult journey. Spreading knowledge about cancer prevention and cancer survival can make a difference. It would be recommended to read very special book “Anticancer: A New Way of Life” written by Dr David Servan-Schreiber who describes long journey from cancer and relapse into scientific exploration and, finally, to health, marriage and happy parenthood. This book describes a new view on life of cancer survivor. Dr David Servan-Schreiber explores both traditional and non-traditional approaches to prevent, fight and treat cancer. Any cancer client can incorporate healthier approaches into “life after cancer”.
Anticancer – a new way of life
“For a number of years, I never talked about my disease or what I was doing to help myself. I wanted my patients to think that I was in good enough shape to care for them, which I was. But, a few years down the line, after I was doing well, my brother told me that as a doctor, I shouldn’t keep that information from the public. He said I had to share my findings with the world. And, he was right. It was then that I decided to write Anti Cancer” Dr David Servan-Schreiber
David Servan-Schreiber was young successful scientist in psychiatry and neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh. While working on research project, by happenstance, David underwent brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) instead of missing person from control group. Unfortunately his colleagues discovered brain tumor (size of walnut). He was only 31. Urgently David underwent surgery but after 5 years tumor recurred. He was forced to accept second operation followed by chemotherapy and radiation. As a scientist he starts his own project which was dedicated to anticancer natural remedies. He starts a new life after cancer – exploring and popularizing natural anticancer remedies which can fight cancer. David Servan-Schreiber examined benefits of healthy anticancer diet and balanced lifestyle (healthy food, reasonable physical activities, emotional well-being and environmental awareness). This is how he combated cancer and how he recommended preventing cancer. Natural vegetables, olive oil, garlic and green tea were crucial in his anticancer strategy. David Servan-Schreiber was clever experienced dedicated anticancer messenger – he wrote books and lectured in many countries. Anticancer is a natural method of health care that contribute to cancer prevention and/or to bolstering (strengthening) conventional cancer treatment methods (surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy).
“If we all have a potential cancer lying dormant in us, each of us also has a body designed to fight the process of tumor development.” Dr David Servan-Schreiber
David Servan-Schreiber’s anticancer strategy can be considered as revolution in cancer prevention and cancer fight. His book “Anticancer: A New Way of Life” is synthesis of science and personal life experiences full of depression and happiness, love and betrayal, hope and optimism. David’s inspiring personal journey can show you the way out of cancer. His main guides to “a new way of life” after cancer include the following:
Avoid cancer causing food and develop your personal science-based anticancer diet;
Avoid sugar and stress – both feed cancer. Achieve your comfortable life balance including healthy nutrition which can combat cancerous transformations;
Try to overcome weaknesses, mistakes and psychological trauma because effects of helplessness and unhealed wounds affect body ability to restore health;
Practice and benefit from physical exercises, yoga and meditation;
Avoid environmental toxins which could trigger cancer development;
Anything that boosts immune system can fights cancer and certain food items or behaviors that have anti-inflammatory properties can help stop cancer from spreading;
Learn how to find the right blend of traditional and alternative health care.
Evidence-based lifestyle transformation for people diagnosed with cancer can make a difference.
“This book is above all my testimony as a witness and fellow sufferer. I had cancer. I’m cured now, and I wanted to share what I learned with other people. Being a doctor doesn’t protect you from cancer. But because I’m a doctor and a scientist, I was able to take my knowledge to its limits and learn to look after myself. I wanted to write the book I would have liked to read – the book that, if it had existed, would have helped me to avoid falling ill, and that would have helped me learn very quickly how to give my cancer treatments the best possible chance of working.” Dr David Servan-Schreiber
David Servan-Schreiber died in France at 50. He went through difficult cancer diagnosis, surgery, remission, relapse and redemption. His 19 years long anticancer life can be the best example for millions of cancer fighter.
“Book of Dr David Servan-Schreiber is a moving story of a doctor’s inner and outer search for balance; radical in its discussion of the environment, lifestyle, and trauma; and compelling and cautionary in its proposal that cancer cells lie dormant in all of us and that we all must care for the “terrain” in which they exist”.
