Healing Cancer is an authoritative guide to cancer and clinical nutrition for the naturopathic, conventional, and integrative student and practitioner. Based on primary research and evidence-based practices. Healing Cancer has become a standard reference text in medical libraries, adopted and recommended for course work at several medical colleges and health science programs.
Written in collaboration with Linus Pauling, Abram Hoffer presents the results of his nutritional treatment of hundreds of patients suffering from various forms of cancer. These results show that megadoses of vitamin C and other nutrients are not only effective for reversing the progress of this disease in many cases, but also for improving the quality of life in others. A nutritional therapy program complements conventional chemotherapy, radiation, and surgical treatments, reducing dangerous side effects and improving the chances of full recovery. Healing Cancer refutes critics of nutritional treatment for cancer through the evidence of Dr Hoffer’s case studies and Dr Pauling’s statistical analysis.
