Hampton, VA – If you were given a diagnosis of lung cancer and told you had six months to live – that’s pretty much a death sentence, right? Wrong! When Dr. Carl Helvie was given that very diagnosis 38 years ago he decided his last months would be without the debilitating effects of traditional medicine. Now, at age 80, he is not only free of chronic illnesses and prescribed medications but is the longest living lung cancer survivor! His new book, You Can Beat Lung Cancer: Using Alternative/Integrative Interventions (Ayni Books), is one of the most comprehensive books on alternative treatment for lung cancer available today.
We have been conditioned to believe that surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are the only way to fight cancer but, according to Helvie, “this could not be more wrong!” Interestingly, a team of researchers in Washington state recently discovered by ‘accident’ that chemotherapy does not treat or cure cancer at all but rather fuels the growth of cancer cells, making it even more difficult to destroy the second time around.
Using holistic natural interventions of supplements, herbs, enzymes, diet, prayer, meditation, visualization and more, Dr. Helvie not only overcame his cancer but prevented a recurrence. So, considering only 11% of Americans over age 65 are free of chronic illnesses, and by age 75 the average is three chronic illnesses and five prescribed medications, following the steps outlined in his book is like being given back 20+ years of life!
Dr. Helvie’s book is based on his 60-year background in medicine and research, and input from some of the leading medical and health practitioners currently in the field today. By shedding light on the alternatives to traditional harsh treatments, he is arming us with the necessary information to make a rational decision should we ever be faced with this diagnosis.
