One of every four deaths occurring in the United States today is due to
cancer, and the number of diagnoses continues to increase. Fortunately, however,
cancer treatments are improving, which means more and more patients are
surviving for longer periods.

Complementary methods have played an important
role in these treatments, showing benefits such as a higher quality of life,
reduced instance and severity of the side effects of standard therapy, and a
general improvement of the patient's immunological state. Indeed, these methods
- from carefully monitored nutrition, exercise, and psychological support to
enzyme substitution, phytotherapy, hyperthermia and microbiology therapy - are
critical to a treatment's overall success.

More than ever, doctors need
accurate, up-to-date information about which methods have been proven in
scientifically based clinical studies (EBM) to be acceptable for use in
conjunction with standard treatment methods. In this unique book, experts
ranging across medical disciplines present data on the efficacy of these methods
as they are currently being used, the necessary scientific background, and
practical advice for introducing them into practice. With illustrations, tables,
and detailed descriptions, this book is an ideal reference and an invaluable
tool for educating patients about this encouraging aspect of cancer therapy.

Throughout, the contributors emphasize the latest scientifically and clinically
tested treatments. A useful chart lays out in detail which treatments are
applicable for various types of cancers and what effects they have been shown to

The word is out about the beneficial qualities of complementary therapies
in the treatment of cancer. More physicians are offering it to their patients,
and more and more patients are demanding it. You - and your patients - cannot
afford to be without this valuable resource.
