In her New York Times bestseller, Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds, Dr. Kelly A. Turner, founder of the Radical Remission Project, uncovers nine factors that can lead to a spontaneous remission from cancer—even after conventional medicine has failed. While getting her Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkley, Dr. Turner, a researcher, lecturer, and counselor in integrative oncology, was shocked to discover that no one was studying episodes of radical (or unexpected) remission—when people recover against all odds without the help of conventional medicine, or after conventional medicine has failed. She was so fascinated by this kind of remission that she embarked on a ten month trip around the world, traveling to ten different countries to interview fifty holistic healers and twenty radical remission cancer survivors about their healing practices and techniques. Her research continued by interviewing over 100 Radical Remission survivors and studying over 1000 of these cases. Her evidence presents nine common themes that she believes may help even terminal patients turn their lives around.

A seminar participant had this to say: "As a nutritionist and naturopath, I was drawn to the event because I found it fascinating that mindfulness could heal cancer. Originally thinking I would only stay a few minutes for the event, I not only stayed the whole time, but learned so much from Jerome and the 7 strategies. Jerome is such an amazing person who has contributed so much and the mindfulness meditation sessions during the event and discussion amongst the attendees was dynamic to say the least. I believe Jerome's testimony and book gives people power. Power that they can overcome the biggest of odds. Power that there are alternatives to just chemotherapy, and power that by becoming one's own health advocate through meditation, nutrition, and lifestyle change, healing is in our hands." --Immanuel Lewis, an elite holistic and naturopathic nutritionist practicing in Santa Monica.

How to take a consciously mindful role in your own healing and recovery—from a cancer survivor and hypnotherapist. A cancer diagnosis can bring with it shock, anger, and fear. Add to that a feeling of disconnection from the body and the prospect of facing a mountain of technical information, and it’s hard to know what to do next. Take Charge of Your Cancer offers step-by-step direction for managing the journey of healing and recovery. Coach, cancer survivor, and former health policy lobbyist Norman Plotkin has mastered the key steps that give cancer patients the power to influence outcomes and make their bodies their business. Take Charge of Your Cancer is for cancer patients who want proven tools that make a real difference, including tools that engage the power of the subconscious mind. Being an active participant in the healing process is critical for recovery. People who feel more in control of their own wellbeing are more likely to make sustained lifestyle changes to improve their health. Reframing cancer to be an opportunity for personal growth—a challenge rather than a threat—can transform a cancer diagnosis into a positive turning point, one that redirects toward healing, surviving, and thriving. Take Charge of Your Cancer is the guide for that journey.
