Cancer: Why You Need To Take Control

“”I wish I’d read these books before I was diagnosed. My doctor and the cancer charities didn’t tell me any of this.”"

Cancer Is Like Terrorism. Force Alone Cannot Win This War.

You have cancer. Or you know someone with cancer. For some of you the diagnosis is fresh & you are still stunned and shocked. For some, it is old news & you are anxious and concerned but you’ve got through the horror of those early days. I know. I’ve been there too. I was there when Bernadette, my wife, was told. I know how it felt for her & and for me.

So, you’ve come to the right place

I’ve been researching cancer for over 18 years and I have information that will very likely help you get well again.

I can help you avoid pain and suffering. I can help you overcome pain and suffering.

There is a lot of information in my cancer books & information that you need. Information is vital. Without information you are like a top spinning out of control. With information …?


“Chamberlain’s Cancer Recovery Guide packs a lot of discussion on theory and treatment into what may be the best read on alternative therapies for cancer.” – Townsend Letter for Doctors

Being diagnosed with cancer

Being diagnosed with cancer is like being claustrophobic and suddenly finding yourself in a dark room. There is only one light (or so it seems) a brightly burning candle. So you move towards it. Why would you not?

When you are first diagnosed with cancer then the doctor appears to be your only hope. He (or she) is the person who has all the answers (or so you think).

Most people who are diagnosed with cancer do what the doctor says they should do & for the simple reason that they don’t have any other option. They don’t see the other candles.

There are other candles & there are other options.

“Jonathan Chamberlain’s Cancer Recovery Guide is loaded with practical ways to beat cancer now. If you have been told that your only options are surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, then this is the book for you. In my 33 years as a health educator, I have seen very few books on cancer that are so upbeat and so well written.” – Andrew W. Saul, Assistant Editor, Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine

You have a choice

Your first choice is this. Do you wish to leave your cancer to the experts to do as they wish? Or do you want to have some control over what happens to you? After all you are the one who has to suffer the consequences.

If you are wise, you will start reading up on cancer & starting now.

Are you aware that there are drugs that will stop cancer in its tracks?

I’m talking about common, everyday, non-chemotherapeutic drugs. They don’t have this effect 100% of the time. Actually, since this effect has never been researched we cannot say with any certainty how many people are likely to benefit. But it is known that some people (possibly around 55%) do benefit in this way. If you have cancer then, whatever else you do, you will probably want to do one or other of the two drugs that I know of that have this effect.

If both of these drugs have a different way of achieving this effect of stopping cancer in its tracks and they both have a 50% likelihood of working, then together they should have a 75% likelihood of stopping the cancer in its tracks.

If you don’t want to die of cancer then this information is useful. Ask your doctor about them. But most likely he won’t know of them. And if he doesn’t know of them he can’t tell you about them.

Let me make one thing very clear, these drugs do not cure cancer. You will still have cancer in your body. However, these two drugs appear to have the property of stopping the cancer in its tracks. A cancer that isn’t growing and spreading is a cancer that isn’t going to kill you.

This is just one of many facts that you will find in my books.

Should you do chemo?

All the decisions about what to do for your cancer are yours & not your doctor’s or anyone else’s. You may want to know if your cancer is one of the 5%; of cancers that is curable by chemo & or one of the many others for which it has been disproven as a viable treatment.

Over 75% of cancer patients in the USA are recommended to have chemo & but only 5% of cancers are curable in this way. For the other 70%, chemo is potentially a cruel joke. It is often cripplingly painful. It appears to make the cancer shrink. But then the cancer returns & more aggressively. There has been little, if any, gain in terms of time but the cost in terms of pain and crushed hopes has been bitter. However, not all chemo is painful and you may want to have it because it will feel like you are doing everything you can.

But if you decide to do chemo & remember it is your choice & then you may want to do something to lessen the pain and damage. There are many ways of reducing the pain. Again you can compare what the doctor says with what you read in my book. You can decide for yourself which is most useful.

Should you do surgery?

There are good reasons for doing surgery & and there are good reasons for avoiding surgery & or setting limits on surgery. The more you know about the complications of surgery the better the outcome is likely to be. Even biopsies have their dangers. Do you know what those dangers are? Shouldn’t you find out?

Should you do radiation?

There are some major problems with radiation & and there have been some interesting new developments. Again, doesn’t it make sense to read the pros and cons before making any decision?

What about the alternatives?

Are you aware that there is a great deal of scientific support for many alternative treatments? Where do you think a lot of these alternative therapies are coming from? The truth is there is a great deal of laboratory-based research that demonstrates that many plant extracts & or phyto-chemicals & are beneficial. These are often called neutraceuticals.

Are you aware that the reason there is no proof that diets can cure cancer is that no-one has done any research on the subject! 90% of research is directly or indirectly funded by the pharmaceutical companies & and drug companies are not interested in knowing about diets because they can’t make any money from diets. But you are interested in diets & if they can help you eliminate your cancer & and equally important, make sure that the cancer doesn’t come back again.

Is there really no medical cure for cancer?

In truth, the answer is no. Some people have surgery and that sometimes solves the problem & until whatever caused the cancer in the first place causes a new cancer. Surgery doesn’t eliminate the cause & it can only eliminate the result & the tumours. Sometimes that’s enough. Often it isn’t. The cancer appears to be cured right up until it returns. In some – a very few – cases, chemotherapy is effective. It is estimated that 5% of people with cancer have a cancer that can often be successfully treated with chemotherapy. Chemo often appears to work because it is used alongside surgery. But if the surgery works the chemo is unnecessary. And you should know that there are long term effects of chemo that could seriously interfere with your enjoyment of life.

Doctors don’t have a ‘cure’

It’s a sad fact that doctors do not have a cure for most cancers & and for those few cancers that they do have cures for, these cures can be horrendously damaging and can result in a lifetime of pain, damage and ill health. Really. That’s the simple truth. (Oncologist Siddhartha Mukherjee admits this in his excellent book: The Emperor of All Maladies). It is such a horrible, simple truth that your first reaction is likely to be to say: “I just don’t believe it.”If that’s your reaction then consider this: One study found that breast cancer patients treated with combined chemotherapy and radiation were later found to have 28 times more leukaemia than the general population.

The common problem of ‘chemo-brain’ – cognitive impairment caused by chemotherapy which makes people fuzzy in their thinking – lasts ten years or longer. (See references at bottom of page.)

This is the truth that the doctors aren’t telling you. They don’t have a cure for cancer.

New treatments are better, aren’t they?

You’d like to think so, wouldn’t you? But again, the truth is that new treatments that come on to the market are not necessarily better than the previous treatments. In fact, according to Iain Chalmers of the British Medical Journal, there is evidence that “new treatments are as likely to be worse as they are to be better” than the current treatments. Amazing, isn’t it?

“This book gives hope…It explains clearly the arguments for and against a multitude of treatments…I wish I had read this book before I was diagnosed. My doctor and the cancer charities didn’t tell me any of this,” – D. Bushell

Eliminating the tumours is only half the battle

Getting rid of your tumour is only half the battle – you have to make sure the cancer doesn’t return. Surgery can’t help here. Nor can chemo or radiation. If you want to stay well, you have to change the way you live your life. But how? In what ways? Again you need to read my books to find the answers that suit you.

There are many answers. The answers that attract me may not appeal to you – and vice versa. But if you have cancer and – whatever else you do – if you do not build into your survival plan a diet, or some supplements, or some herbs then you shouldn’t be too surprised if the cancer returns.

Pattie’s Story

Let me tell you a story about Pattie. A few years back, Pattie was diagnosed with breast cancer. Fortunately she was already prepared and she said ‘No!!!’ to her oncologist when he recommended chemo.

Instead of doing chemo she put a herbal paste on her breast. I won’t lie to you, it was very painful – but only for a few days. However, over the next month the cancer tumours were slowly eliminated from her breast – and also from her neck. This herbal paste had found where the cancer had spread to and eliminated it there as well. In only 30 days she was completely cancer free.

You will find details of this herbal paste and the rest of Pattie’s story in both my books.

That is the only physical treatment that Pattie underwent – however there were other things she did that helped her recovery. Today, Pattie is very much alive and she is cancer free – and if you don’t believe me you can talk to her yourself. Let her tell you in person.

The Good News

The good news is that there are many, many ways of treating your cancer – and you’ll find all the answers to all your questions in my books (about which more later). You will also learn about the scientific support for these approaches – because, despite what you may have been told, there is more hard science supporting so-called ‘alternative’ treatments than there is for the orthodox approaches. You don’t believe me? Where do you think these alternative therapies come from? Many of them are coming out of research laboratories.

People are already moving towards CAM treatments for their cancer

Almost everyone is already doing something that their doctors don’t know about. It’s a secret move away from orthodox medicine – and this movement is getting bigger and bigger all the time. (Ask yourself this: If doctors had a good cure for cancer there wouldn’t be a need for alternative therapies – so if more and more people are using CAM: complementary and alternative medicine – what does that indicate?)

Here’s what University of Toronto cancer researcher Heather Boon discovered in 2005: “…more than 80 percent of all women with breast cancer report using CAM (41 percent in a specific attempt to manage their breast cancer), “CAM use can no longer be regarded as an “alternative” or unusual approach to managing breast cancer.” According to her, younger, more educated women, in particular, are more likely to have a high commitment to CAM therapies.

Cristiane Spadacio, another cancer researcher, says: “…there has been an exponential growth in interest in – and use of – complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), especially in developed western countries…Studies show that the number of patients who use some form of alternative therapy after the diagnosis of cancer is high…[and they experience] high levels of satisfaction with alternative therapies.”

Ann’s Story

Let me tell you about Ann Frahm – she was given only a few weeks to live when all her orthodox treatments failed to cure her. She went on to live another ten years (most of them cancer free). She’s just one of many people who took responsibility for their cancer and was rewarded for doing so. She wrote about her story in her book, Cancer Battle Plan.

Beata’s story

An even better example is Beata Bishop who 25 years ago was diagnosed with terminal melanoma – not many people survive that diagnosis. Fortunately Beata is still with us and you can see a video of my interview with her in my Cancer Orientation – Part Two. You can find a link to this on my Facebook Group: Cancer Recovery.

Ellonna’s Story

Take the case of Elonna McKibben. Elonna had a cancer on her spine that had left her paralyzed. And it was an aggressive cancer that was expected to kill her. But Elonna is alive today because she heard of a treatment that sounded weird but she decided to go along with it on the basis that she had nothing to lose by doing so. The result was that her body expelled the cancer over a period of weeks. Again, I have told the full details of her story in my books and again she can be contacted to discuss her case. If you don’t believe me, talk to her.

“This is an incredibly informative and useful book. Every one of you needs it in your library.” – Bill Henderson, author of Cancer Free

How to get well again

The first step is to decide what approaches you are going to do – and then, the second step, is to develop within yourself the courage to do them – and then, the third step, is to do them!

Simple really.

So the first step is to know what to do. There are many approaches that have helped many people recover from their cancers – but you can’t do them if you don’t know what they are.

There are many strategies for attacking cancer – and there are many specific ways to realise those strategies. The strategies that appeal to me may not appeal to you.

Also your cancer is different from my cancer.

Also, you are genetically different from me. What works for you may not work for me.

This is the scenario that we need to work within.

We cannot therefore say X,Y and Z are cancer cures because that implies they will work for everyone, against all cancers, all the time.

However, there are many strategies and approaches that work for a majority of people – and if we mix two or three strategies together we will increase the likelihood that we will succeed. Again the maths is simple. If we do three therapies that each have a 60% chance of success then the resulting combined success rate will be around 94%. Not bad.

There are also approaches that won’t cure cancer but which will stop it from growing and spreading. Has your doctor discussed these with you? Probably not.

“Being someone diagnosed as a terminal cancer patient, I have scoured the ‘net and read many books. This is the best. And it gives hope too…Get this book; read it; be inspired by it.” – Ian Clements, cancer survivor

“A very well written book, beautifully organised and easy to read and understand.” – June Black, Cancer survivor

“These books should be on the shelves of every medical practitioner who counsels or treats cancer patients, as well as cancer patients and their families.” – Positive Health Magazine

“An excellent, up-to-date resource,” – Patty Feist, website manager of
